Thanks to n2j3 and Urban, antiX has its own irc channel.

Registered #antix @ zoite.net
servers:
funky.zoite.net / sexy.zoite.net / affinity.zoite.net and laeta.zoite.net

and
#antiX
irc.freenode.net

Come in for a chat.

ok... What is IRC, really?

Def: Internet Relay Chat

Sort of an Instant Messaging. but non-gui like program?

How about some basics on sign-up and use for some of us who have never used irc?

Yeah, we'll let the 'kids' give us the instructions for irc.
I'm a relative n00b at this too.

antiX comes with irssi (CLI, but very cool!) and xchat (GUI and also the coolest of the GUI chat apps, so I have been told) for this thing.

This is what I do in irssi. NB I'm nowher near an expert at this.

1. Open irssi from the menu
2. Type /connect irc.freenode.net or /connect funky.zoite.net then enter
3. Type /join #antiX (for freenode) or /join #antix (for zoite)
4. To join in the chat, just type your message.

That is the basics as I see it.
Let's hope the irc gurus can help us old fogies out here!

a few useful commands:

/nick desirednickname to change your nickname
/topic to change the channel's topic (if you have the required privileges)
/part to leave a channel

for irssi in particular (which coupled with GNU-screen make a really useful combination) this is the best guide available:

Okay, here's a preliminary report: I just logged onto the zoite irc channel using anti's directions for irssi. Works great. Got a couple of really nice hello's despite my stumbling around.

I was gone for the weekend. Now I will be back in the irc channels. Both of them.

Quote:
2. Type /connect irc.freenode.irc or /connect funky.zoite.net then enter

This should read "irc.freenode.net or /connect chat.zoite.net"

net because well .irc does not work and chat in case the server you choose is down.

We need to choose a channel eventually. I have had some issues with zoite dropping me, but they are extremely friendly there. I'd hate to leave them. However, I have no ability to control the actual channel in zoite and in freenode I can customize everything perfectly and have yet to be dropped from freenode. There are also a few other factors to consider.

Well, zoite autobanned me from their servers for not having a CTCP reply when using SSL. I guess I will only use irc.freenode.net #antix until my proxy comes through or my ip changes then I will be in both channels again.

Update: I've been unbanned!

Update: I've been auto banned for the same thing again. I quit. No one goes to the channel anyway. I will still hang out in freenode #antix.

We (users at irc.freenode.net #antix) are thinking about electing a new founder, as no one has seen the current founder in a long time.

I am willing to be the new founder, or if someone else want to, that is fine also.
If anyone is interested, please post here.

We need to set a time to do the voting, but we need to know who wants to be voted for.
Also, we need people to go there (on irc) and vote at the time of the vote...oddly enough.

Uh, anything I missed?

New founder?
Someone who starts something is the 'founder', therefore, I assume, you want to take over & be the 'boss' of something, but of what?'

Edit: Are you proposing to run/manage the IRC channel?

well, ie, yes, we need someone to be the new "boss" on the #antix irc channel on irc.freenode.net

There are a few of us that use it quite a bit, mostly just chatting about whatever, but we re trying to help with antix questions, when we get them, or just send people here...

OK, I don't use it but if you want votes, you can have mine. :)
