By visiting my channel you agree to read and abide
by the rules linked above. If you do not abide by the rules, you will be summarily
ejected from the channel so that the people who ARE abiding by the rules may
continue to enjoy the room. I don't care if you're 13, 50, or any other age,
I expect you to be able to behave decently in public - if you can't, then
don't be surprised when you're given the boot.
GETTING TO MY CHANNEL
Channel name: #sphynxcatvp Server:
IRC Network: DalNet
My schedule: Currently I'm usually parked
in channel, barring technical difficulties such as ISP outage or computer
problems. However, I may or may not be at the keyboard. My nick will reflect
long-term status (i.e., -FoodRun, -Sleeping, etc.) but won't necessarily reflect
short-term statuses, i.e., whether I've stepped away to raid the fridge, use
the bathroom, or clean up after the cats. If you say something in channel,
please be patient. You may not get a response immediately if nobody's at their
keyboards, but that doesn't mean someone won't reply in a few minutes.
If my nick includes "AFK" or "away" anywhere,
that means I'm NOT AT THE COMPUTER, and a private message will NOT
be answered until I come back. If I'm marked AFK or AWAY and don't respond
right away, don't pitch a fit, it won't improve my impression of you. If you
just want to leave me an FYI message, that's fine. :)

IF YOU'RE GETTING INTO IRC FROM WORK,
BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING
Your workplace may have the IRC ports blocked - I can't help you with this,
since I'm not your work's sysadmin.
Your workplace may allow IRC, but LOG ALL TRAFFIC
THROUGH IRC PORTS. Or worse, have keystroke logging enabled. Think
carefully before doing this from work. Things may come back to bite you in
the ass later when you least expect it - you never know who's reading the
log files: your coworkers, your boss, your worst (workplace) enemy.... just
for examples. Yes this IS legal for the workplace because they have a right
to ensure their equipment is being used for it's proper purposes.
Port logging does NOT commonly involve the computer you're using. Thus, cleaning
the traces won't delete these logs.
Here is a short list of IRC clients for Macintosh and Windows. No, I cannot
help you with downloading or installing the IRC software, read the particular
package's help files and documentation for that. I also cannot help you if you're
trying to work around a firewall - that's between you and your firewall's admin,
If you have an OS that's neither Windows or Mac, check this
list at Dalnet for an appropriate client.
