Chat Room


#1

How do I set up or connect to the chat room in Dreamhost because the server is acting weird. Its fast sometimes and its not few secs later.


#2

That chat room has always given me performance related grief, and I gave up on it long ago. I find IRC on freenode.net’s #dreamhost channel to be a great place though. :wink:

Can you provide instructions on how to set up and connect to that channel ?

Generally, all you need to do is obtain an IRC client for your computer, and then use it to connect to freenode. Once there, you can “/join” the “#dreamhost” channel.

If you have never used IRC (Internet Relay Chat) before, the following links will probably be helpful:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IRC Wikipedia article on IRC
http://www.irchelp.org/ IRC Help Archive
http://irc://freenode/ Freenode home page

There is a good list of IRC client software in the Wikipedia article. It may seem like a lot to absorb at first, but it is not really that difficult, and there are many channels available for almost any interest on IRC.
