Main IRC Information

Listed below should be all the information one needs to join us for real-time communication via IRC.

Wikipedia IRC Clients (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_IRC_clients) - Huge list comparing most of the IRC clients.

Basically you want to find your operating system and look through the clients to see which might fit you best. If you are unsure just ask. Hope this helps some of you. This post will be updated and edited as needed.
