== Unfamiliar with IRC? == Here's some good [http://freenode.net/using_the_network.shtml general documentation about IRC and Freenode]. For those who are not familiar with getting on IRC, here's what Mitch did: * For Windows: Download and install [http://www.pidgin.im/ Pidgin] (free IM chat software for Windows -- there's plenty of other free software to choose from for Windows and other OSs). * For Macs: Colloquy (that also supports SILC) is Free Software [http://colloquy.info/ Colloquy]. * For Linux: $ sudo apt-get install hexchat Then (using Pidgin on Windows): # create an IRC account on Pidgin ([http://adammonsen.com/post/329 good documentation for this step]) ## Go to Accounts (I got to Accounts by right-clicking on the icon in the system tray) ## Click the Add button ## For the Protocal, choose: IRC ## For the Server: chat.freenode.net ## If you have a Screen name (a “nick”), type it in as your Username (If you don’t own one yet, make one up) ## Click on the Advanced tab, and fill in the Real name field ## Check the Use SSL box, if you like ## Click the Save button # join channel: #noisebridge: ##In the "freenode-connect" tab that appeared in Pidgin, type: '/j #noisebridge' (without the quotes) # So that no one else can use your nick, you can register your nickname at freenode.net If all else fails you can use ChatZilla either as part of the [https://www.seamonkey-project.org/doc/features SeaMonkey suite] or standalone as [https://github.com/Ascrod/ambassador/releases Ambassador].
