    Where is everybody?

    Just out of curiosity and wistful nostalgia, is there some sort of IRC channel that our membership is hanging out at, similar to the old #FKAnime channel?

    That, or someone want to make one?

    #FKAnime home of the Cap

    when ever i used to go there no one else was there either, except maybe scythe.... he ran the thing if i remember correctly....

    maybe its cause of the different time zones?

    there was a time when it was semi-active, but it kinda died out after a while.

    i would probably drop in if the channel was started.

    Allrighty, so do we have an IRC guru who wants to maintain a chat on Dalnet (or elsewhere)? I'm happy to participate, but I'm currently using Fire as my IRC client, and it's not exactly feature-rich.

    That, or someone want to just put up some instructions on how to link to IRC and we can ad-hock it?

    Update: I got myself a proper client and registered #FKAnime this morning on DALnet. Hope to see some regulars there.

    tutorial for the IRC illiterate :

    if you're on Windows, go to http://www.mirc.com/ and download a version of mIRC, which is the most popular irc client as far as I know.

    When you have it installed, click on the little folder with a hammer by it on the toolbar, or go to File > Options...

    This dialog should've popped up when you first started mIRC, but if it didn't, its there now. Click on Connect in the list on the left, and you should have a few things you can change appear. The first dropdown box should say IRC Network. Click this and find DALnet. The box underneath that should have a list of servers to connect you to DALnet, it really doesn't matter which one you use.

    Under this there are 2 text boxes that say full name and email address. Don't feel compelled to put anything legitimate in these, in fact, put whatever you want.

    Under this, is where you put in your nickname, and alternate nickname. If the first one is already in use on DALnet, then the client switches you to your alternate, and if that is in use also, I'm pretty sure it prevents you from connecting. Just use something we'd recognize, so people know who you are from FK.

    anyway, after you have all that filled in, you just hit Connect to Server, and it should connect you to whatever DALnet server you chose. after you are connected, type "/j #fkanime", and it will bring you to the room.

    well - some even more basic help.
    go to www.mirc.com and download.
    install and run the program - a big dialogue box pops up, press cancel.

    click here

    and that'll take you to the room.
