Is there an IRC chat this year?

MacRumors IRC (http://www.macrumors.com/2003/06/08/macrumors-irc-channel-macrumors/) is always open. :)

I tried irc.krono.net and irc.macrumorslive.com ... no one in the macrumorslive one, and krono.net doesn't work.

Good point...thanks for checking. I'll leave a note for Knox...hopefully he can provide more info when that side of the world wakes up in a bit.

irc.krono.net #macrumors is the 'official' IRC channel and is open all year round. During the keynote itself it will contain the live feed and will be moderated so you won't be able to speak, while discussion takes place in #macrumorschat.

irc.macrumorslive.com is a temporary server and is only used for the keynotes. Again, #macrumors is where the feed is while #macrumorschat is for discussion.

Krono should be working again, but irc.macrumorslive.com will have a lot more servers on it so is more likely to cope.
