Ooo...:D IRC? I'll definitely have to check it out - does everyone use Colloquy or does anyone use anything else? I've got an Xchat Aqua set up for another channel...I'll have to give Colloquy a try. :)

We had a few that did use Irssi. Not sure they are active anymore. I tried it. It worked fine. I just liked the way Colloquy works with OSX and overall and for my moderator commands.

BTW, there's Colloquy now for both iPhone and iPad:
Colloquy - IRC Client for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/colloquy-irc-client/id302000478?mt=8)

No more excuses for people if we want to start using the channel again ;)
