RIBnet on-line chat

It's something that has been requested a few times, but until now I haven't done anything about it. Rather than try one of the stand alone chat programs, I have set up a RIBnet channel on a public IRC server to see how much (if any!) interest there is.

If you want to give it a try you'll need an IRC client program. There are loads out there, and I am using IceChat www.icechat.net which is free.

IRC server: irc.mixxnet.net
Channel: #ribnet

Any IRC whizz kids out there?

John

DJL was first RIBnetter to make it onto #ribnet, followed by Ribald and Louise. We were joined by alex323 from the mixxnet staff who was very friendly, and keen to help a bunch of clueless IRC newbies.

He seemed surprised to find that we live in the real world though:

[23:12] <alex323> What's RIBnet?
[23:13] <DJL> its a website, well forum - www.rib.net/forum
[23:14] <alex323> ahh
[23:14] <alex323> is RIB a 3D gaming thing?
[23:15] <DJL> nope, RIB = Rigid Inflatable Boat. Basically a boat with tubes round it.
[23:15] <alex323> in real life?
[23:15] <DJL> yep

We've had a couple more people on tonight: Ribald, Louise, Alex Brown & Jimbo so far. Any more takers?

Today saw us joined by Benc (who turns out to be an IRC guru!), Slimtim (albeit briefly) and Richard B.

This thing might just catch on!

Oh dear. Now you've mentioned Richard's on no-one will come near it!

(Sorry dear - didn't mean it!)

I didn't know what I was doing either but you pick up the basics really easily. Come back and try again!
