IRC (internet relay chat) is a real time
communication medium for the internet. I like to think of irc
as the human side of the internet - the place where people can
communicate with each other in real time regardless of your location.
As long as you have a computer and an internet connection you
can be online and chatting to your friends, seeking help and helping
others. Other real time internet communication media such as ICQ,
iChat, AOL Messenger, MSN Messanger, etc. are all based on IRC.
This section features the IRC programs
you can use, a quick start guide for the IRC newbie, addons/extras
to IRC such as sounds, scripts and faces and links to netiquette
guides and more information on IRC.
