In reponse to the large number of people who seem to be having
trouble with ICQ, I have set up an alternative. I have set up an
IRC server on my machine and I will be running it 24/7 for a while
to see if people like it. Getting to this server is a very easy.
Simply go to the following URL:
Just enter your nickname and your real name in to the available
fields and click on the button labelled “Connect” The first command
you should enter in is “/join #orchid” This will change you to the
#orchid channel where you may chat to your hearts contentment.
There is a user named rover on the channel. He will not talk to
you. He is a bot that I am testing.
If you have an IRC client you can connect to the server as
ibm1.urel.wsu.edu on port 6667. If you don’t have a client use
the above link.
Remember this is just a barebones system, its ugly but it works.
Let me know what you think.
