    I am trying to find soe good mac devoted servers/channels to find mac stuff. Most of IRC seems to have all windows related junk, and no mac things. Is there such a place? Thanks in advance for the help.

    Well, Macrumors has a channel. I doubt if anyone will be in there until MW and that's only if arn decides to advertise it.

    yeah... the Macrumors channel is just for special events mostly... or when the forums are closed for any reason.

    DalNet and EFNet have #macintosh channels... but like most IRC channels, they are of variable quality.

    yeah, its not that IRC is all that great compared to some of the p2p apps, but the shear quantity of files that you can find is overwhelming.

    Esper.net also has a #macintosh channel but it's fairly boring. You can find a lot of files on IRC but just watch who you're getting them from.

    WOW! not to mention that there were a couple (2 or 3 out of 40) flagrant ******* know-it-alls. Remind me never to visit a mac chat channel again. Man, get some manners whoever you were...

    Don't let one bad apple spoil the whole barrel for you. Not everyone in those channels are utter *******s. Some are actually quite helpful.
