More freenode IRC Server Information

What's IRC ?

It's a chat thing, free to use and as old as the Internet.

Why would you want to use it ?

It's an easy way to speak to someone from and other people who use software.

How does it work ? have already set up a channel. All you have to do is connect to it.

Once connected you could type: hello

and someone might type hello back.

The more confident might ask a question about software (or not).

If you just want to hang out and say nothing, you are welcome to do that too.

Okay, how do I get started ?

The easiest way is point your web browser at:

In the Nickname field type a polite nickname.
In the Channels field type: #logFarm

note the '#' so: #logFarm

You will have to confirm you are human by clicking the I'm not a robot button and then tap a few pictures to show you are a person and not a trouble making machine.

You'll see a text field at the bottom of the page so you can type: hello

The channel is very casual so if a reply is not immediately forthcoming please don't take it personally, it's just that people might be doing other things. Stick around, they'll wake up eventually.
