Perhaps this place should have a page so that you can access the IRC channel (irc.freenode.net #screamingelectron) from the webpage using a Java Applet? Sometimes I can't SSH to a *N?X box and use BitchX/irssi/epic/etc. so I can't access the IRC page :shock: perhaps that applet would allow me to access the page from different places (a friends house, *cough* school *cough* ;-), etc.). Whats your guyses opinions?

Check out bsdhound.com Soup4You2 has jirc running with the channel being none other than good ole #screamingelectron.

Soup4you2 has setup a #bsdhound channel and that is the default channel now. You can /join #screamingelectron or look in the config of the applet and choose it from the dropdown. It will automatically log you in as your screenname. Obviously you are going to need an account setup at BSD Hound (http://wwww.bsdhound.com) but he is using phpBB too so it should be very familiar for you.

The site was updated tonight and it looks good Soup4you2. I noticed that he put a banner linking over to Screaming Electron. It sure seems familiar (http://screamingelectron.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=227&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=45)

At last resort, you can always go to Linux Junior, use their Java IRC, type '/server irc.freenode.net' , and '/j #screamingelectron'. :D
