WB IRC Channel Now Open!


Hello, kids.

I just registered a channel for us on the ZiRC network. In order to join, you should do the following:
  1. Download an IRC client. I recommend mIRC.
  2. Set up mIRC to connect to the ZiRC network by doing the following:
    • Click "Tools" - it's circled in the screenshot.
    • You'll be in the section where you can register with your name and e-mail address. They don't check this, so I just use a psuedonym ("Penny Lane") and a fake e-mail address.
    • Select a username. I suggest using the name you use on WB. I chose solecistic. You can also type in an alternative nickname, which doesn't matter since it only comes up if someone else is using your nickname, which they won't be. Screenshot:

    • Click "Servers" on that right tab, under connect, and scroll down to select the ZiRC network. Screenshot:

    • Select "connect to random ZiRC server".
  3. Connect using the button next to the Tools button at the top. It looks like two disconnected triangles. Clever, huh? Click it and you'll connect with your desired nickname (the one you entered earlier).
  4. Register your username. This is important because it protects your username so that no one else can use it. You can do this with the following command (you do this by typing into the bottom of the box that comes up when you connect):
    • /msg nickserv REGISTER Use a valid e-mail address here, because the server will send you an e-mail asking you to authenticate the name. When you receive that e-mail, follow its instructions.
    • When you logon from now on, you must identify yourself to NickServ by entering the following command:
      /msg NickServ IDENTIFY
  5. Once you're all set up, connect to our channel! Type /join #writersbeat to join the channel.
  6. Talk amongst yourselves!

Hi,
Excuse my ignorance, but what is the "channel" all about? Why should one want to join?
Gene.

I checked it after I joined the board here, but, again, no one was there.

May I suggest to propose occassional or even regular chat times?

nevergrowup: Some people like to chat in this mIRC program. I personally never got into this aspect of the internet realm.

Panthere Noir: Sure, go ahead and organize a time. I may even drop by .

I joined again. No one had been coming, so I stopped going in! I'll idle more.

Hm? It's #writersbeat on Zirc net, isn't it (because that's where I am just now? Or have I confused something?

That is, zirg.org - the current server being sapphire.va.us.zirc.org . . .

That's odd. I'm in the channel and no one else seems to be here. Try reconnecting?

Ah, the reconnect worked, too - would two people on the channel at the same time now possibly constitute a new record?

So, new record lifted to three people being on the channel from the former record of two!
