Hey everyone..There's been a few little snippets of discussion regarding a live chat system, but the topics quickly run down the list and disappear as people reply to other things.Well - here's some information that might help people get chatting...Download a chat client - there is an excellent one available for windows at https://www.mirc.co.ukOnce
you've installed it, run the program and connect to any UNDERNET server you can.If you have trouble connecting, here is a list of some servers I find to be reliable:haarlem.nl.eu.undernet.orgdiemen.nl.eu.undernet.orgsandiego.ca.us.undernet.orgwashington.dc.us.undernet.orgmclean.va.us.undernet.org(if you type in /server followed by the server name, it will try to connect to that server)once it connects, type /join #poi and you'll be chatting before you know it

if anyone has any issues connecting you can e-mail me and i'll try and help you out..my email address is berticus@yifan.netit'd be great to have some more support! so far we've had about 6 or 7 different people come into the channel, which is really good, and about 3 - 4 regulars

I tried to get an IRC channel going for poi and fire spinning back when Malcom was first experimenting with web-based chat systems. It went over like a lead balloon, or should I say waterlogged poi...

A number of people have come in and out of the channel already, a lot of the time just joining and leaving almost instantaneously because no one is around to chat at that time. Unfortunately, because of the time difference between us all it makes it difficult to meet at a unified time, so you've just kinda gotta hope someone's around

I emailed malcolm a few days ago regarding the IRC chat but as yet haven't heard anything back -- are you there malcolm ?
