    Hey Guys :)

    Anybody interested in a Steyrclub chatroom? Prolly mIRC is best for realtime chat. The spontaneity is awesom and is like havin' a real pub, cept for ya can't just get another beer when ya run out. <shrug> Anyway, if you know how to config an IRC client here's the info you need:

    Server: irc.slashnet.org
    Port: 6667
    Channel: #Steyrclub

    If ya got any questions, PM me. Cya.

    Should we ever expect or chat applet to be back?

    A few other boards I frequent have tried this same thing and it usually results in 1 or 2 people in the channel at any one time - it seems that most members of firearms related boards aren't too IRC savvy. We shall see...

    A valiant effort, nontheless.

    Hiya *tax* :)

    Not sure bout the "chat appelet-thing-ama-jiggy", but if it was onna them upgrades gone wild, I expect that -D is still workin' it out. Personally, it had lagmonster written all over it. The irc chatroom is "realtime", the lagtime is usually less than a second DSL. Its the spontaneity that I enjoy when the room is hoppin'. If you've ever frequented an irc chatroom, they can get very busy indeed. Its like a pub with a buncha background noise until ya link up in private to discuss what it is you're most interested in chattin' about. I expect that there are quite a few out of 2500 + (dayam! 8-O ...did I just type 2500 +?), that may need a bit of coachin', but once you're in the room, there will be assistance. Usually a couple times gettin' to the room and the heebeejeebies are squelched and the camaradarie begins. Last night was the first try and it was great. Add a couple more members to the #Steyrclub and it'll get even better. I'm for sure not promotin' a 50 guest room count, but 5-10...maybe even 15 on ocassion is plenty. Issues can be sorted pretty darn quickly when lagtime is removed. The major points that are sorted there can be posted for the general Steyrclub members with nothing much lost. <shrug> Anyway, that's kinda what I was hoping for. I mean, I've PM'd prolly 100 +Club members and really enjoy what each of ya's has to offer this Club. 1 on 1 or the exchange of info via a special interest group has its rewards. Anyway, a PM with a time can get the ball rollin' ifn ya wanna meet there. Hell, I'm there now! 8) Hava good week, *tax* . :)

    ^Wulf :)

    joined in the irc games for the first time last night. took this compu-noob (not new, just an idiot with a keyboard) a while, but with a little help, i got straightened out.

    really was fun.

    rapid fire steyr action.

    like a full-auto steyrclub, as opposed to a bolt-action steyrclub

    anyone who is curious, give it a shot. just go to slashnet.org. download the mirc program.

    someone will be able to help with a server or joining #steyrclub if you have trouble from there.

    Afternoons are usually pretty barren - I'll be on tonight. Wulf, Goryous, majette, babj615, and I are the regulars. BigTaco has been tied up with work lately, but he drops in when he can. MrApathy, Netfotoj, and even our fearless leader Deluxe247 have been known to make an appearance from time to time.

    I've got my IRC installed and would enjoy participating in a group chat with some advance notice. Beats the heck out of watching Oprah and Friends.

    I've been trying to meet with someone (anyone) in the chatroom since the day I signed up in the SteyrClub (not very long ago) but nothing yet, the time diference i think doesn't help either.
    :eek:

    The IRC channel was kind of a flop after its initial introduction. A lot of people had trouble getting everything setup, and timezones didn't make it any easier. Now that Deluxe has incorporated a chat room into the website applet, I see no need to revert to IRC - I'm gonna unsticky this and let it drift off into the sunset. :cool:
