    i've set up an irc channel for you folks.

    the server: webmaster.ca.us.austnet.org
    the channel: #thephotoforum

    Chase, if you have a problem with the channel name, i'll change it to something else.

    if any of you don't understand irc, post here and i'll put together a quick 'how to'.

    so come on!

    Its a chat room Dew
    But not one run by java or other crappy things that kick you out constantly.

    I generally download Mirc to use it. I havent got it installed at the mo but I just may have to do so to cause havoc in photoforum chat :twisted:

    IRC = Internet relay Chat

    Kinda like a cross between AIM, MSN, or ICQ and a big global chat room.


    Trillian is the easiest way to get connected to it.
    they are a multi format chat client that covers all of the above plus Y! messenger.

    Trillian can be downloaded for free at www.trillian.cc

    If you have or get Trillian, you can then right click the grey circle and choose connection manager...
    Then in the list of channels (look like folders on the left side of the box) skroll down to ausnet
    Open that folder and pick the country you are in or closest to.
    then in you should enter the nickname of your choice in the right side of the box.
    Then at the top click connect.
    after that, the grey circle at the bottom should get filled up.
    right click the grey circle and choose from the menu: join channel
    type in that box: #thephotoforum

    A window will pop up with the list of people on the right, the ongoing conversation on the left, and a text entry box at the bottom

    Hope this helps!
