Many of our community members use IRC to communicate and talk about calcs. The UCF IRC client forwards messages to IRC from a browser. To take full advantage of the features of IRC (Such as other channels, and full control of your session), you must join the UCF IRC channel. (irc://irc.afternet.org/#casiocalc for those who know what they are doing).

To start out with IRC, you'll need an irc client. I use KVIrc, but you can use whatever client floats your boat; the procedure is roughly the same. Try several out to find one you like.

  • Linux
    • HexChat - A nice IRC client for beginners
    • Pidgin - Yet another client that supports many networks
    • KVIrc - A good client that is very configurable
    • Konversation - KDE's IRC client
    • Quassel - Similar to KVIrc, but more beginner friendly
    • irssi - A command line client
  • Windows
    • mIRC - One of the more popular clients, however, you must pay for it
    • Trillian - Yet another client that supports many networks
    • Miranda IM - Yet another client that supports many networks
    • HexChat - A nice IRC client for beginners
    • Pidgin - Yet another client that supports many networks
    • KVIrc - A good client that is very configurable
    • Quassel - Similar to KVIrc, but more beginner friendly
    • irssi - A command line client
  • OS X
    • Colliquy - A nice client for beginners
    • Quassel - Similar to KVIrc, but more beginner friendly
    • Snak - A good client for beginners
    • HexChat - A nice IRC client for beginners
    • Pidgin - This is the OS X version of Pidgin
    • Linkinus - An advanced client that costs money
    • irssi - A command line client
  • Open your IRC client; you should see something like this:

  • Type in "/server irc.afternet.org" and press enter. This will connect you to the irc server.

  • Some text will show up, and after a few seconds, more will pop up. At this point,it should look something like this:

  • Next, type "/join #casiocalc" and press enter. This will join the channel (a place where people can talk to each other) that UCF has.

  • After that, a your irc client should automatically switch to the channel. If it doesn't, just click on the new tab. Congratulations! You are now ready to talk about anything on your casio-centric mind.

For lazy people: just click on the link, and you can have irc right in your browser: https://www.afternet...nnels=casiocalc

Etiquette



For a smooth voyage, please follow all of the following guidelines:

  • Listen to Ops. Ops are the people with an '@' next to their name. They can kick and ban you from the channel, so don't piss them off.
  • We are not here 24/7. Many people idle on irc, even when they are afk. When you ask a question remember to hang around so we can talk to you.
  • IRC is not AIM. Please keep emoticons and textspeak to a minimum.
  • Don't Spam. Spamming is disruptive and annoying and will not get you noticed (and may even get you kicked/banned).
  • Don't Troll. Trolling will *not* be tolerated, and could result in a kick or ban.
  • Be Courteous. Being nice to others will go a long way in getting help.
  • Respect Channel Rules. Remember that some channels have different guidelines about what you can and cannot do.

That's about it; enjoy your stay!
