    Hello all!

    Lots of hype about the Apple iPhone Event in just over 16 hours! If you're not aware, MacRumors has an IRC channel for discussions on anything Apple related. So please, if you have any questions, or just want to pop in for a friendly chat - we will see you there!

    When I go the web based chat it says something like Macrumors640 logged in. Am I showing up as my name on here or what's the deal?

    connecting through that chat is an anonymous web-based interface. if you type "/nick YOURNICKHERE" and press enter, it will change your nick name.

    alternatively, you can download a dedicated IRC client (Colloquy linked in the OP, Adium, Linkius, etc.). :)

    Yes certainly! Colloquy is probably the best to purchase, Or if you just want to try out IRC go to webchat.mr-irc.com and log in as a guest :)

    Hi Guys, this link is not working for me. Is there another general place that people are going to chat? At random times?

    Seems to be working okay now. Although the password I had that did work before for my nickname no longer works.

    EDIT: The IRC room has been moved to irc.mr-irc.com.
