I use a Mac and the program I like best for IRC chatting is called Ircle.
Go to this website to download the program. The site also has everything
you need to know about set up, IRC chatting, and such.

MAC: http://www.xs4all.nl/~ircle/

If anyone is on a PC, I do know you use MIRC. You can probably download it
from a similar site as Ircle. Do a Yahoo search for MIRC. That should get
you there. Try this....

PC: http://www.mirc.com/

If we set up a chat room i'd like to do it on one of these servers:
davis.oz.org
AU.undernet.org
aussie.au.austnet.org

I have been chatting on these servers without much trouble for quite some
time now. We would all need to use the same server connection to get to the
same room.

We need to have a name for our IRC channel (chat room). How about DBAE?
ArtsEdNet? ArtTalk? Any other ideas?

We can set it up officially, or just whoever gets there first starts the
room. I have never set up a room, but I know someone who has. We may not
want to hassle that at first. Let's get it up and running first, see what
kind of turnout we get, then we can decide. There is no need to officialize
it really.

Anyway, these are the basics. Should we do it?
I'm game!

Hope this helps answer some questions.
