MistressAlti
Well, you can tell it's a Saturday night... no one in either chat. Hrm.
Pikasyuu
I know. where's everybody?
MistressAlti
Out, if they have a real life. Lucky bastards.
WeeJ
this is so very frustrating...I can't use IRC because I suck and Yahoo is the biggest bag of shite I've ever come across in my entire life.

I actually belive that Yahoo has been soley invented to break my computer horribly.
Am I the only person with this problem?
Debaser
yahoo is really starting to piss me off now. it's decided that it can override my system's mute command. stupid thing...
The Tortured Soul

TTortS logged in connecting to server... connected or summat like that (i haven't tried in awhile) and i kan't type nething, it's like i'm not in a room yet... kan ne1 help me??? if you kan pm me coz my online times are very random so if you post on here i'll probably lose it...

What is the name of the channel that the forum members use for the chat here on IRC? I want to join the fun... smile.gif
Oni Usagi
You gonna be on soon?
I don't know if anyones there right now, but I could invite you
That way y'know, the password and the secrecy don't leak.
I've screwed it up before.
depressed fromage
theres a password? ohmy.gif oh, my. so secretive....I like it. tongue.gif Sure, I can be trusted...I think.

/me coughs ph34r.gif
monkey_called_narth
why isnt anyone ever on the chat?
kidvicious2punk
will someone plzz get on? sad.gif
monkey_called_narth
what the irc channel??
Phyllis
Most people hang out in IRC now, I think. I was loyal to Yahoo, but well...IRC doesn't kick me off at random intervals..lol. Plus, people actually go there..

But, we don't advertise the channel name on the forums for everyone to see cause of past...issues.
monkey_called_narth
could you pm it or somthing???
Phyllis
I'm not actually sure..lol. I'll ask Debs the next time I see him. He owns the channel, after all. smile.gif
MarJ
I`ve finally done it!

Just took me an hour as

A-was not an yahoo member
B-was not on the otherside mailing list.

Why oh why is nothing simple? blink.gif
MarJ
Finally got into the chatroom last night and there was nobody in there!

(does that make me sad for using a chat room on a sat.night?)
(don`t care...I`m pregnant....cant smoke, cant drink....... sad.gif
LoLo
Sorry to tell yah Marge that most people have not gone to the yahoo chatroom in a long time.

BTW I absolutely adore your avatar. biggrin.gif
MarJ

i second that huh.gif
Aria
Hmm, well, I guess there being an irc channel would explain why no one seems to be in the yahoo chat.
Mata
I'm no good with the IRC stuff, so I couldn't tell you how to get there, but the channel name is rather rude and is staying that way smile.gif Hopefully someone who knows more what they're doing will be able to PM you to tell you how to get on there.

The first rule of IRC is: you do not talk about IRC.


Actually, the first rule of IRC is you don't feed ChanServ, but not talking about IRC is up there.

ermm, well really the FIRST rule of IRC is there is no such thing as 'the cupboard' ... THEN that you dont feed chanserv ... and third that you dont talk about ... oh dear, there I go talking about it again ...

Having said that, long-time-no-see-nobody on IRC, so might be time it was, ermm, mentioned ....

Not a chance. It should stay how it is.

Someone could set up a new one though...for the public to be admitted to and all. But leave the other one private. Anything else would be wrong...and would OBVIOUSLY be in direct violation of the ONLY rule of that channel, which you all seem to have forgotten!!

Rule 1. Burrito

Pssh. Forgetting the burrito rule! I'm ashamed of you!

The Burrito Rule covers everything. One of those things being never go take a nap and leave your defenseless body in IRC with Chan. Oh yes, you will wake up with at least one demon child growing inside of you...even if you are male. /me pats Medusa and Cain Serv.

Then you'll end up with a porn themed e-wedding so Chan can make an honest woman (or man) out of you.

Ah. Memories. *tear* smile.gif

But....seriously. If people want a place to chat, and they want to use IRC, then someone just make a new channel and advertise it here. We could use RT? I re-registered that one...but someone would have to tell me how to make people auto-opped..hehe. But I just don't want the other one mentioned publicly. That just wouldn't seem right. I don't mean to offend anyone else...but it's been a private room for a long time..and well...you know. But I'd be more than willing to open the doors of RT, if there's a demand for it.
Pab
'RT' could be nicely resurrected .... it'd need a supremely evil bot to make sure people get in op-de-op loops, nad generally mistreated ... but that'd be easy peasy lemon squeezy ... PM me if you could use a hand .... go there NOW and we could sort it out immediately ... if ya like smile.gif
Aria
Hey, if the chat's private, by all means, keep it that way. It'd be kind of silly to ressurect a channel for one person, yes?
Pab
aha! but 'chat' is not a private thing, its to be shared ... there may be rooms that may belong to a small succint group of buddies ... but we need one that is for forumites .... THE TIME IS NIGH ... (very nigh indeed)




(this post was edited the next day to make more sense)

Okay, if people really want to use IRC since Yahoo is rather dead, Pab and I set up a channel. The name is #burrito

To get the program, go here. After you get it installed, use the server irc.new-wave.net to connect. I use it and it's always worked really well for me. Getting connected isn't complicated at all...but if you have a problem then ask.

I probably won't be in there much...nor, I'd imagine, will any of the people I opped. So, for the most part, it'll pretty much be unmoderated. But people are still expected to be generally polite to one another. If you have a problem with someone on the channel PM myself or Pab only if it's serious. Don't go to Mata or another mod on here, because the channel isn't related to The Other Side (that is, the official chat room for here is still Yahoo...Pab and I just set this up because of boredom and the emptiness of our regular IRC channel).

Now I wonder if anyone will actually go there... tongue.gif
CommieBastard
Well, I still pop into our oh-so-secret one every now and again, but I usually leave when I see it's empty. Think only Jaq, Oni and I still come back there.
Pab
######### THIS IS A PUBLIC BROADCAST #######


Just a quickie to mention that there is an IRC room called #burrito that has been created to cater for our community IRC needs .... and the Duffers Guide to Coneecting to IRC can be found here:

Duffers Guide to Getting into #burrito

... and offers solutions for Mac owners (a part from buying a PC) ...

The info is in another thread, and needs to be available in this thread too ...

Would be useful if some bugga was in there!

I think you must be doing it wrong. There's 3 of us in there currently.
Pab
**** FAST RESPONSE DIVISION ... #burrito Brigade ****

dude ... there've been people in there almost all weekend, except for british morning time ... You sure you're on the right network/server/planet?
poppa.moo
probably not, i wasn't in there for long, i needed my beauty sleep, and it was getting onto half 1 in the morning! I'll have to check when I get chance this weekend!
Aria
Um, has something changed? It says I need a key to get in.
Pab
LOL or what .... nah ... nothing has changed ... we were farting about for a second and got snookered on the key thing ... but all is well ... (albeit empty) ... the key thing lasted for about 7 minutes ... that was very unlucky timing....
Aria
Lol, okay. Thanks, Pab!
Oni Usagi
Sorry about that, I was kicking everyone cause they were voting against me, and set that on accident.
