IRC

hey guys...I noticed I am the ONLY one in the IRC chat room...so I'm just trying to give it some hype.

for those who don't know anything about IRC...it's basically the original MS Messenger.

google mIRC and download the 1.5 mb file and install it....then:

type in your desired username and then join the us.undernet.org server


finally type "/j #airsoft" to join our channel

if you need help or have questions...PM and i'll help yah get on!

my nickname on there is All-Star

If you're using Firefox and don't want to download a separate program I recommend ChatZilla.

Where can I go for additional information on this subject?

I thought that mIRC was a 30 day trial.

Anyways. I use Teamspeak/Vent because I don't like typing too much.

We should totally setup a TS/Vent server.

I had one up, but my server closed and I'm too busy with work to properly manage it unfortunately.

it is a simple protocol, and there are lots of tools for it.

That said, apparently people don't use IRC, at least not from ASC.

G'day,

People don't use it from work, anyway. At least, I don't. Until I'm back on evening shift that is... <:

I sat in that channel for about a month in April, jonesing for some outdoor games or talk of same. No one came in. *shrug*

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.

The advantage of IRC over nearly any other chat method is it is still one of the best One to Many chat options out there. And just about the only option that I know of that allows fairly random people to join a channel and have it moderated. I'm not the biggest fan of putting random people on my MSN or something to chat with about random things, but IRC fits perfectly for that problem.

The reason why no one uses it is because no one is using it. If a large enough group of people made an effort to log on and chat when people are there, then you would see the channel liven up.
