    Recently while doing some web based research ;) I stumbled across a #powerpc IRC channel on ircnet.net. Been monitoring it for a few days now but haven't seen anyone else.

    Do any of you use IRC?

    I'm not really the chat type. I used to check into the 68kmla IRC channel on occasion -- just to lurk for a couple of minutes. Haven't done that either -- in months.

    One of the threads here recently had a comment about real time help. Don't know that I have enough free time to hang out and chat but it might be a way to help others.

    PS: Yes I know there is a AOL chat thread, but I'm not installing AOL software when I can just do IRC in a browser.

    I use Adium. :D

    One app for all chat. ;)

    PS. There's a plugin that will have it control Skype too. :D

    Not leet enuff for IRC, I reckon ;)
    ...remember the cool user-friendly ballooned text convos of iChat? LOL
    I did use xchat or whatever it was called for twit lurking about 5 yrs ago.

    I'd love a MacRumors iChat with its come & go ease-ability.
    iChat always seemed so chill & friendly.

    But does an iChat protocol still exist?
    I'm so out of touch.

    We had an AIM chat going for a while, but it died out. iChat worked with AIM, so you could message from the PPC macs

    I've had #powerpc up several times over the past week at various times. So far I've seen 2 others pop in then right out (checking their client?).

    The best way to revive a PPC chat is to announce a day & time. Start at once a month and go weekly (or bi-weekly) dependent on the level of interest.

    I have a server cluster here that could run an irc room for us.

    I'm an idler also, spent a few years helping in the new Ubuntu users channel but haven't done that in a few years now at this stage.
