CGR IRC Chat

Alrighty, I've started a CGR IRC channel. Here's the info:

server: irc.freenode.net
channel: #cgr

For those not familiar with IRC, read this.

See you there!

Also, if you use Trillian for AIM, MSN, Yahoo, you can use it for IRC too.

You might be on the wrong server. It's irc.freenode.net, channel is #cgr.

A quick primer for those new to IRC:

1. In your client, look for a box for the server.
2. Type "irc.freenode.net"
3. Then pick a nickname and join.
4. Now once you're in the server, type the following: "/join #cgr"
5. Chat away!

username can = nickname, it doesn't matter.

server alias: irc.freenode.net

then remember, "/join #cgr" once you get in.

I put the irc.freenode stuff. Apparently the server alias can be anything you want it to be.

Are you in the program? Like, on the server? If so, do this:

/join #cgr

One other thing. Remove the connection and then try it from the top again.
