We use an IRC channel that's on freenode. It's temporary and quite useful. Feel free to join. The needed information is as follows:

irc://chat.freenode.net 
#noisebridge

We have a helpful bot in the channel by the name of martha run by Andy Isaacson



For those who are not familiar with getting on IRC, here's what Mitch did:

- Download and install Pidgin (free IM chat software for Windows -- there's plenty of other free software to choose from for Windows and other OSs).
- create an IRC account and connect to irc.freenode.net (there's good documentation on how to do this on freenode.  You can also register your nickname at freenode.
- join channel:  #noisebridge

For those who run Ubuntu and are not familiar with IRC (unlikely?):

$ sudo aptitude install xchat
