    How to join the official IRC channel

    Not exactly sure who asked for it, but we have a nice little channel called #cythera on IRC. Since we have the channel (held by grybs's, durandal's, and my bot), we might as well use it. In case you don't know, IRC is a great system for chatting with other people. If you know how to use IRC, join the channel and have fun... (topic changeable by non-ops). Otherwise...

    Complete Idiot's Guide on How to get on and use IRC, step by step

    1. Get an IRC client: an IRC client is a program that lets you connect to IRC channels and talk with the people in them. A good, easy to use shareware client is ircle. Go to the site, click on 'download', and download it (in english, macbinary or binhex is fine).

    2. Set up an IRC client: After you've finished downloading and decompressing ircle, double click on the 'Ircle 3.04' (or something like that) icon. Now, click on or open the 'connections' window (open by window- >connections). Double click on the first thing in the list. Now, set its settings to:

    Server: Click on the 'Select...' button. Then click 'Add...'. In server name, type in ' irc.afternet.org ' (no quotations). Set the port to 6697. Enable the "SSL" option. Finally, click on the network pop-up menu, scroll down to the bottom, and select '€none'.
    Nickname: your preferred name, less than 9 characters
    Username: your preferred name, of any length
    Real Name: some other name. It can be seen by other users by a /whois, so don't put in your real name unless you want people to see it.

    To save your changes, press the 'OK' button. Also, go to 'File->Save preferences' so that you won't lose the settings you just made if the program crashes.

    3. Connect to #cythera: If it's not selected, reselect the first connection, the one you changed, in the Connections window. Then, click on the 'connect' button at the bottom of the window. The icon to the left of the connection should flash a few times, until it turns into a blue and a red arrow, in opposite directions. This means you're connected.

    If it's not open, open the 'inputline' window ('Windows->inputline'). This is how you communicate with the channel. To join a channel, type in: " /join #whatever " (no quotations), and whatever being the channel you want to join. So, to join #cythera, type:

    /join #cythera

    . If you did everything right, you should join #cythera! Hopefully there will be some other people there to show you around IRC. If you have any problems, just post a reply right here and I'll see if I can help. Good luck!

  • Also, IRC can be a great way to get in touch with mods or other members, if necessary... Avatara, under the aegis Tyrael, has been known to come occasionally. Gluebubble comes quite often.

  • Aye, and if any of you guys have difficulty, come back here and tell us what your problem is...we'll get it patched up real quick! :) That said, IRC is a fairly cool place -- you can get to know your fellow Cytherans better than ever before.

    Agreed. I'm going to try and stay in the channel for as long as possible today and tomorrow, to welcome in new members. /me stutters trying to come up with another way to patch this obvious attempt to put the topic at the top... :¬)

  • What Talos has put up there is good... except that he's used "#sanity" as an example.

    Not the best example, considering that it's an invite-only channel, and will merely confuse the inexperienced user. So... in the above instructions, I would reccomend replacing every instance of "#sanity" with "#cythera"... which, afterall, is the point.

    And to reiterate... though my bots run the channel, I do not. There is a world of difference between running a bot, and running a channel. So, if you have problems, Talos or GlueBubble would be the men to talk to. They have high clearance levels on Sway, the primary bot, and can help you in almost every way imaginable (though I imagine they'd draw the line at doing your homework, or similar).

    Having said that, I'm still there if you need help when those two aren't around. I can be found in #ev3, #codewhores, #hypergate and (though this is not a good place to look) #sanity.

    So, enjoy...

    Ack. Fixed. Shows where my head is... somewhere in my hind quarters. :¬)

  • I just started coming. It's great!! If you've been on #ev3, we have a bot called Archon who's like Hector, he he. I apperantly won a sweepstakes and am a mod now!

    Well, now that more people than me, Bubble, and Sway use the channel, I'll make an effort to appear more.

    Oh, and you might want to fix that last bit:

    Umm...the computers at school (the ones I generaly use to get on the internet) are now Linux... can I still use this "IRC"? I would just download it and see, but I'm out of space on my private drive, and I'd have to delete some stuff to get it, which I don't want to do if it doesn't work.....

    Oh, and what is so important about the number 17?

  • Well, its a big number and if 17 people came on, I'd get ops. But Talos changed his mind. But I got them, it just took time. :D

    'IRCle' won't work, it's a Mac program; but there are plenty of IRC clients out there for Linux, you just have to find one.

  • (url="http://"http://www.bitchx.org/download.php")http://www.bitchx.org/download.php(/url) <-- there is a page with a client for Linux; scroll down and click on the one that says it is for Linux.

    Oh, and where do you go to school that you moved to Linux? It's certainly uncharacteristic for schools.
