IRC Instructions:

The IRC is no longer hosted on Freenode (evidently Freenode suffered a hostile takeover in 2021 and most of the staff left).

It is now hosted on Libera.Chat #jaxlug

  • So, fire up your IRC client of choice, look for the #jaxlug channel, and try out a nickname:

/nick <your proposed nickname> (you can't use robmckennon... that's mine!)  :)

  • If successful, then register that nickname by:

/msg NickServ REGISTER <Pas$w0rd> <> (for a confirmation email to be sent)

  • Copy the line in the email that looks like this:

/msg NickServ VERIFY REGISTER <nickname> <randomStringOfDigits>

into the chat window, and you should see something like:

<nickname> has now been verified.

  • That's it!
