Chit Chat

We love talking to you guys. Really, we do. Whenever we do "live chats" - AKA stuff too big for the ShoutBox - we tend to use TinyChat. Lately, however, I've found this service to be clunky and slow.


It's time for a change. Today, I am announcing a new chatroom for ilictronix. You can check it out anytime at http://chat.ilictronix.com, or simply by clicking "Chat" at the top right of this webpage.

Oh, and it's IRC, so if you're handy with a computer, join us at #ilictronix on irc.geekshed.net.

See you guys around!

In desperate need of some idlers in the chatroom :)

I recall ilictronix tried a chatroom in the past, but it didn't work out so well. You really need some regulars. People drop in for a moment, see the chatroom is empty, and then immediately leave (which is a quite natural reaction), and the chances of several users dropping in simultaneously in this fashion are quite slim.

If you need some help setting up an application to connect with a standalone client that works with IRC, just ask. Pidgin is a particularly easy-to-use-and-setup client; in addition to IRC, it works with AIM, MSN, Google Talk, Yahoo, ICQ, and a bunch of others.
