Having An Irc For Casio Calculators
Posted 06 September 2006 - 07:29 PM
Hey guys, some of my friends and I wanna start an OFFICIAL IRC (Internet Relay Chat) for Casio calculators. Seeing that people with TI calculators have their own IRC, could we have our own for Casio? Having an IRC allows a way of some sort of instant chat messaging so people could ask questions and get answers right away. However, we have thought up of some problems with this:
* What would happen to this forum? We'll all love casiocalc.org.... Could it perhaps save bandwith on this website or space?
* Where are we gonna host this IRC? EFnet or some other server?
* Who is going to operate it? Also managing bots, scripts and other stuff....
We would like to hear people's thoughts on having an IRC. Is it a good idea or a bad one?

Anyway i think it would be nice, hope you will have enough support for this.
Im not sure but i think this forum started from an IRC channel. Maybe someday killer, mohamed, maybe ross could tell more about this.

Most of people like to chat using in excess silly smillies and dont like IRC. IRC its most for geeks. The same happen to other irc channels like the linuxforum one. Nice guys and nice channel, but just a little number of visitors.

The thing is, the people that know what they are saying and that can really help can't be online 24/7 and the number of users isn't that big so i think the forum is better, also if someone is smart enough he/she can search the forum before asking a question and the forum can act as a knowledge base.
The IRC would be good to exchange ideas and for quick doubts.
Don't get me wrong, i think it would be a good thing but very hard to maintain.

1. Please don't use profanity and don't make threats. Please make people feel comfortable. If a TI calc user comes on and starts babbling and makes people feel uncomfortable, an operator will kick them off.
2. No virus and spyware uploading and spreading.
3. No trying to take over the channel. X3 will maintain the channel.
4. Last, please enjoy you're stay. If you like it, please tell me.
I hope an Admin, could integrate this feature into this site. But oh well.....
If you have any comments or suggestions, post them here. I'll be glad to hear them.

Could you please do something so that the usernames of
the admins are reserved to them, so that no abuse is possible.
This would be verry kind. I don't use IRC at all, so you could lock my
username. The other (important) users to "lock" would be

You should check out the IRC. If not could you encourage other people to join it?

Are you sure you're connecting to the right channel? To check please tell me what the current Topic of the IRC is.
To make the IRC more popular, they could integrate an interface to the channel on this site, but oh well....

Yup, I think its the right channel.. X3 is there, and the topic is 'Welcome to Casio calculators'

By the way, I wish I could have HTML support. Then this little piece of code will indicate to other people if I'm online on the IRC:
<a href="http://www.afternet....el=#casiocalcs" ><img border=0 src="http://www.afternet....ucalc&small=1"> </a>
You can setup your own indicater by registering with afternet.org.
Also if anyone else wants to be an operator of this IRC, please tell me and I'll give you operator priveleges.

As for Miranda: It is a fantastic IM, but the IRC function does not seem to work in the new version ...
I can't see the text I type and the text that is posted in the chatroom. So sorry if it seemed as if
a lunatic was in there yesterday

This Google translation better be good....
En cuanto a la gente de habla hispana en el hilo de rosca: Ucf poca esquina sobre Afx/cfx/fx para la gente que hablaba espa?ola, iba a decirte que ella podr?a hacer un shedule y hablar en el IRC pero el hilo de rosca era bloqueado. ?Ahora que consegu? un funcionamiento del wepage, usar el IRC es un broche de presi?n! Apenas ir a mi Casio que representa la secci?n de la calculadora gr?ficamente aqu?: http://kucomp.4000we.../graphcalcs.htm, mecanograf?a adentro un nombre que deseas utilizar en la caja donde ?l el apodo de la opini?n, y el tecleo contin?an y est?s encendido. Incluso no necesitas instalar ning?n software. La gente debe bookmark esa p?gina?
