Posted:I'm not sure if i'm doing it right or not, but whenever I connect to this poi channel - no one is ever, EVER, there. I'm I just timing things really badly or does no one really use it?

Posted:You have to remember that many of the people that might be using it are in different timezones. And many of those are at work when on they're on the net.And Australians seem to think it's tomorrow - poor deluded fools - it's all quite confusing (at least for a simpleton like me).I tried using it (IRC) a while ago - when I first started spinning - and was never very comfortable with it. Shortly after that I started posting lots on here instead....you're more likely to get a response (tehe)

Posted:Normal for most special interest IRC channels

Most people will leave an IRC channel if no one else is there, and so unless a group of people decide to use it by prior arrangement, they're empty 99.99% of the time for (comparatively) low interest subjects.[This message has been edited by Primavera (edited 09 December 2001).]

Posted:What do you mean we think that it's tommorrow.If you really want to get down to the semantics, 'We' think that it is today. That just happens to be tommorrow for you.But as i have said previously, this is not just due to time difference. Us aussies (and NZ's for that matter.....but we don't of these things) are just that little bit quicker than the rest of you guys.But we try not to hold that against you Cantus

Posted:I am constantly on Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm UT/GMT+12This is when I am at work, however, so I can't always be expected to say anything.My nick is usually b--The channel really only has 3 regulars. Ocassionally other people will flitter in and out, but mostly they don't have the patience to get into the swing of things.[This message has been edited by robert michael (edited 10 December 2001).]

Posted:i'm also usually on there at the same time as robert, and generally notice if some one is there within 1/2 an hour, unforetunatly people have usually left by then.Solution: jump on irc, leave it idling, make yourself a coffee, drink it, have another coffee and by then some one should be talking to you

Posted:I was trying to make it simple for young Durb's to understand. You know he has trouble following sometimes.Obviously Australia is the future. You only have to look at some of the sterling work done by Neighbours as an Australian flagship. How else would we English know what a sunny land Oz really is? A place where people you hardly know wander into your house at the drop of a hat, there are only 12 children in an entire inner city school and if you've got any problems you can easily sort them by a trip to the coffee shop/barbecue or by building a motorcyle.One should also take into account Flying Doctors, Home & Away, Skippy, Dame Edna sodding Everage and erm... Not forgeting top pop acts like Kylie and Men at Work. And all those others too numerous to remember.Then there's the honest men and women in charge of the country. Such forthright individuals you choose as political leaders. Decades of sound decisions, good ideas and racial tolerance.No, obviously I wasn't really dissing australia. It was all an act.

Posted:Ok but just remember Cantus. Were the ones that made em, but you're the ones that watch em.For example *clears throat* Kylie was number 1 in the uk charts for some five weeks.Neighbours is more popular in the uk than it ever will be in Aus.I have never seen the flying doctors, and the only skippy i have ever touched was the one i removed from the front of a friends car.
