    For the time being I have set up ##linuxforum. The old channel is currently owned by freenode-staff so I am in the process of getting us back ownership. Once we do that we will either set up #freenode to redirect to ##freenode, or vice versa, so you'll only need to remember one channel.

    okay sure will park my znc there and join you guys as well if i'm available :)

    prefer weechat and irssi for linux / osx (coz of their lightweight CLI) but sometimes using Mac-Irssi (gui version) and X-chat as well. In Windows, using mIRC and still weechat/irssi either by SSH tunnel to linux box or by using Cygwin as well.

    Great to see that LinuxForum has an IRC channel. Would be glad to join when i'm free.

    I prefer using Chatzilla for Mozilla firefox and ofcourse Pidgin makes it even easier.

    Urg. I love IRC and all... but why Freenode? It's a net run by children who are obsessed with maintaining "order". They seem to do this via constantly fighting, killing and taking over established channels. It's a bit silly. Try EFnet.

    You'll need an IRC client, or you can connect to the web client that is provided by Freenode @ http://webchat.freenode.net/

    You can join #linuxforum.com for our official channel
    You can join #freenode for help with IRC
    I'm usually in both channels plus #linux.org

    If you are using your own client, you can connect to irc.freenode.net or chat.freenode.net
