Channel9 IRC

    Seeming as I love live discussion so much, I thought I'd create a Channel9 IRC channel

    Anyone who wants some chit-chat or maybe some dev help, just pop into #channel9 on EFNet

    Ciao!

    You install an IRC client, such as mIRC.

    Get an IRC client?

    I use vIRC: http://www.virc.net

    Other people often use mIRC: http://www.mirc.com

    Linux users are akin to http://www.xchat.org/

    The very 80's of us...


    I don't think that the guys of C9 like the idea of a IRC channel. Sad

    True, IRC channels don't have the best reputation. I left IRC (Undernet more exactly) a few years ago. There were too many 'lamers' (to use IRC slang Smiley).


    An alternative to IRC would be nice, though.

    IRC is just fine for me.  I have been "supporting" MSFT's products for YEARS no on EfNet. 


    I let everyone know about the new channel, in #mscorlib, #asp, #asp.net, #ms.net

    Head count is up to 13 so far!

    If you want a network without lamers, then Freenode (irc.freenode.net) would be a good choise, many open source projects are in there too.

    The 200 or so community members that we have on EfNet are usually pretty good about being lame-asses.

    Of course there are your exceptions from time to time but its easy to just stamp them out.

    The channel has now reached a stable size with bots as well

    Can we get a link to us now, C9 staff people? Smiley

    I usually hang out on Joi Ito's IRC channel, but heck, I'll drop by a little later. Gotta load up a video first.

    Excellent.  I'm there!  Joined last night.  I think it would be great if the irc support channels would get more publicity.  They were a huge help for me as I was first learning how to develop.

    Is the thing still online? I can't join here, since they installed a firewall here Sad

    How do you access IRC over Telnet?
