That said, apparently people don't use IRC, at least not from ASC.
Oh ya, i know .. i just stopped using it around 94 or 95 when everyone i know moved on to AIM/MSN/ICQ/etc as they came out. Of course, most of us jumped ship when this silly "mIRC" app came out and we were invaded by windows kiddies slapping things with trouts :P
Didn't figure it was still that popular what with the availability of alternative chat methods.
