    Bladeforums Chat WEDNESDAY night!

    I've been poking my head in the chat room when I have a chance and get a kick out of it.

    Folks came to an agreement that Wednesday night would be a good time for people to gather there and shoot the um.... well, you know

    Try to stop in! Wednesday nights 9pm eastern time

    Cool. I'll try to remember to drop in, though that is past my usual bedtime.

    Stop by and give it a try Paul. Its an IRC based chat so you will probably be OK even on dialup. There are alot of guys there running older computers as well as on dialup.

    Dialup is fine for IRC, it may take a couple minutes for the page to load when you first go there but the chat should work real-time. If you got a client like mIRC you wouldn't notice any difference from dialup to 50 megabit fiber optic. IRC (the protocol our chat runs on) has been around since the fastest modem was 1,200bps, your modem is probably 50 times faster than that. The main guy that runs the chat (pff) is on dialup, and has been there for about 11 years, and he runs several other chats at the same time.

    L6steel; Well, you are of course welcome to come back, bud.

    If anyone needs help with getting in, or wants to install mIRC or another client I'd be happy to lend a hand... And just for the record, anyone is welcome.

    No reason why it has to be wedensday only =) People can jsut hang out in IRC and chat if people are there or idle if people arent. That's one of the nice things about IRC rather than instant messaging or whatnot.

    Hey everyone, thanks for joining us. We had a great time, nice to see so many new users coming in!

    Absolutely right Justin! The chat (IRC) is open every day, our regular meeting time is about 9pm Eastern. Wednesday is just a good meeting day for a specific 'Shoptalk Chat' that Brad and a couple others thought up. Casual chat is still welcome on Wednesdays, and shoptalk is still welcome the rest of the week, but that just helps set a gathering time.

    Most nights it will be more casual, depending on how many people show up. That is just the nature of things. You'll find with me and the other longtime regulars, when it is just us we are like any friends, catching up on the days events. But if you can't make Wednesdays, or you have free time and want to chat come in any night!

    Again, BF Chat on IRC at 9pm Eastern nightly or Wednesdays for Shoptalk Chat;

    For beginners just click on Mibbit to join in.
    For more advanced users the server is irc.newnet.net and the channel is #bladeforums.com
