What is IRC?
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet chat or synchronous conferencing. It is mainly designed for group communication in discussion forums called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication via private message, as well as chat and data transfers via Direct Client-to-Client.
Ways to get on IRC:
- Use Irssi - popular terminal-based IRC client
- Use XChat - graphical IRC client (not on the CD version - DVD/USB edition only)
- web based client: http://pjirc.goto10.org/?channel=puredyne
