By popular demand, we have created
an IRC channel for OCAU where you can chat in real-time with fellow
hardware freaks! Here's how to get into it:
- Get yourself an IRC client.
For windows users the most popular free one is mIRC. Another popular one is BitchX and it's available for Linux, too.
- Using your client, connect to
an oz.org server. Oz.org is not the most reliable network in
the universe, and sometimes people have trouble connecting to
servers. Try a few, for example:
- client.oz.org (try this one
- Once you've connected to a server,
type "/join #overclockers" and there we are!
The channel is busiest from about
8pm Sydney time onwards and around lunchtime, but there are usually
people there at pretty much all times of the day.
Keep in mind that spamming, flooding,
being abusive or otherwise being annoying will get you kicked
or even banned if you persist. There's some more specific rules here, but the general gist is: don't be an idiot. Ta.
Sticks maintains a regularly-updated
statistics page for the channel.
