Without satellite feeds or quicktime streams, coverage for WWDC's keynote address is more difficult to obtain. MacRumors should have Keynote coverage, however.

Options for coverage include:

IRC

a) Download the MacRumors IRC Client which connects you to the proper channel.
b) If you have your own IRC Client, point it to irc.krono.net, #macrumors or irc.tecknohost.com, #macrumors
d) Web based client can be found at here

Please choose only one option.

Web Coverage

MacRumors will be providing web based coverage. https://www.macrumors.com will redirect to the proper pages as the time approaches.

The WWDC keynote starts at 1pm Eastern time.

Good, hopefully the IRC on the front page will attract more people. Last year hundreds of us were waiting for the details on Panther. As for the forums....

Most users ever online was 2652, 01-06-2004 at 03:14 PM.

Let's see if we are going to break that today.

Less than 3 hours!

I hope apple posts the quicktime stream of it in a few days like it normally does. If they don't then I will just be heartbroken :(

I can't seem to hide the quit messages from the server. If the coverage starts, i'll have to read between these quit messages all the time, not very handy.

I'm able to hide the join messages, but not the quits..

i'm using the web irc client.

They probabaly will have a stream, just like they always do. They're still not broadcasting to the Apple Stores, correct?

I hope they post it tonight...I can't decided whether to read the Macrumors coverage, as it happens, or not look at anything until the stream is posted and watch that.
