    Unofficial Defensive Carry IRC Channel

    Hey all, I did a quick search and didn't see anything about a DC IRC channel.

    I went ahead and created one on freenode in ##defensivecarry (yes with two # signs, as is customary for an unofficial channel there).

    If you'd like to join me, great! If you can tell me about an existing channel I've somehow missed, even better.

    I generally idle in IRC 24/7 though it doesn't mean I'm at the keyboard. Hope to see you there or on an existing channel.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Suntzu made these nice instructions if you just want to try it:

    For folks that not have not heard of telnet, IRC, etc.......here is a simple step by step to chat :

    1. go to: https://webchat.freenode.net/
    2. Enter a nickname (anyname) If you want a permanent name you can do that also
    3. For channel enter: ##defensivecarry
    4. Enter the captcha information

    5. You type at the bottom of the screen

    Exists and thrives. Especially for open source projects, it's where to go to discuss. I'm usually idling in about 15 or 20 channels at once.

    IRC is just another alphabet named government agency created under the guise of community so big brother can keep tabs on the people using it! It's a trap!


    OK I'll take my aluminum foil hat off now.


    Good idea though, seriously. I'd more more inclined to join a browser based chat. Last time I tried out IRC I had no idea what I was doing and ended up in a room involving midgets, motor oil and twister mats.

    IIRC, there used to be a "chat" area here in the forums, back when DC was CombatCarry. Don't recall if it was a true IRC, or just a basic "chat" feature of the software. Likely, just the latter.

    blitzburgh pointed out that he wasn't familiar with Freenode, and I realized it's maybe not the ideal network for us. We're not banned but we're not inline with their usual organizational guidelines. Suggestions for a better network are welcome.

    I am on IRC from time to time, always on the coldfont server... but that's due to a browser game I play. They're pretty laid back folks, I doubt there would be any problem if you wanted to land there. I used to spend some time on esper.net and I can't imagine them having any problems with anything we'd do there.

    Sounds fun, but I'm alrady on two other IRC networks and am not that fond of EF.
    I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

    OK scratch EFnet. We'll stay on Freenode for the foreseeable future.
