Anybody use IRC?

I can open up a Lawnsite room every evening.

It would be a great way for fellow broadband users to share files.

If this makes no sense to you go here and learn something:

http://www.newircusers.com/ircchat.html

The best IRC software it use is mIrc. Download at
http://www.mirc.co.uk/

Now I know some of you are saying why don't I just keep using the AOL chat cleint?

First IRC in not controlled by time warner. IRC is like usenet no one owns it and there are no commercial interests.

Second IRC is just not text chat. You can send files peer to peer thru IRC. This is the killer application for this part of the internet. It's just a matter of time that Napster will be history.

Comments please.

IRC is pretty cool. Really used it there for awhile
a lot, but tapered off now.
Preferred Undernet or DALnet

I like MSN messenger best so far. Text, voice, file sharing, email notices, chat room or private talk, long distance phone calls, computer to computer calls and more. The best package so far. It also remembers you buddy list so you can use it from computer to computer.

I have used it a little and like it a lot. My friend can script for it. He can make scripts that kick people who are cussing etc. Contact me if you could use a script.

I have used it for about a year or so.

I use Fire Talk now for voice and text.

ICQ for file transfer.
