    Is there a DawgShed IRC channel? (search had no results)

    If not we need to get one going, and then we could have an irc chat applet like Mibbit or Kiwi for nubz
    Or just have the #dawgshed with an irc.*dawgshed-dedicated [or] public server*.com for IRC clients

    I've developed websites and forums for over a decade; administrating as well as moderating multiple popular forums (yes we're all dime a dozen) but I know some 1337 will get all up in arms & frown upon an irc channel--being forum related; when the forum is where most of the chatting should take place. Not to mention, irc is pretty archaic these days haha

    Just a thought. I assume this topic has come up... the search tool found 0 results regarding "dawgshed irc channel"

    If I am posting this specific topic in the wrong place, or duplicating--my bad, move or remove. Thanks in advance

    I use applets like Mibbit for both kiwi and nubz, myself. I've been online since 1994, when I got caught jacking off to Wesley Crusher fan pages in the school library. School, school, school. Love it. Good to meet you purplenubz, enjoy your idea here.

    Yea well we could easily just use a public server and promote a channel.

    Unless the host here wants to install a dedicated irc server with the dawgshed.com domain; such as irc.dawgshed.com with channels #dawgshed #siriusxm etc.

    Most people won't want to install an IRC client (if they don't already one) so yeah a web based applet like Mibbit and using a public server would suffice.

    EDIT: And you could simply just add another tab at the top of the layout CHAT and have the Mibbit client do all the rest

    maybe things have changed but in the past the fastest way to get a windows box trashed was to connect to the irc.

    I just remember the first dedicated firewall I setup at home was so I could use MIRC without a bunch of Asian clowns trying to sneak back thru my connection. And a little after I had to borrow a Cisco PIX because the SOHO firewalls just weren't powerful enough to handle those kids.
