Kaseya Community

IRC Channel

  • Hi Everyone,

    As a giant geek at heart, I spend a lot of time in IRC interacting with other techies.

    Which led me to wonder if there would be any value in a Kseya IRC Channel?

    If you're interested in chatting with other Kaseya Partners, join irc.oz.org #kaseya

    I'll see you there.

    Jason

  • BitchX, if you want to talk flashback Wink

    Anyways, yeah, it would be really cool if this IRC thing would take off a little. Really nice to be able to chat live to other kaseya users.

  • I haven't used IRC for a while. Any recommendations ona free IRC client. I'd like something with basic options and no installation required would be nice too.

    Thanks.

  • The way I do the "no installation required" is to host my chat client on a server that is on the public internet. In my case, I use BitchX for linux. When I want to chat i just ssh (using free SSH client) to the server, and start BitchX, which is text-based, not graphical. Since i'm always using it on the same server, my chat logs are always in the same place, no matter what computer i'm sitting at.

    You could do the same thing with a graphical windows client like mIRC if you had access to Remote Desktop or VNC to an always-on windows server.

    Off-hand, i don't know of any IRC clients that don't need to be installed (on windows), but, have a look here:

  • I like this IRC idea, thanks, Jason.

    I do not know of a client that does not require an install. I use mIRC. I purchased a copy years ago.. er um decades ago, and still have it.

    There are a few if you google it. I am sure they all contain the same basic functionality. I do not know about Bitchx. I use linux as little as possible, although I am hearing great things about umbutu... or however you spell it.


    I forgot the name of the person I was talkin to in IRC earlier.... but he brought up a good observation. He said the channel needs to be registered. I do not proclaim to be an expert in IRC, does Jason need to register this channel?

  • I'm at GMT+8 which makes me the opposite to the bulk of you!

    Never mind - there's value in joining the channel and lurking. Don't just leave if there is no activity. It needs to hit a critical mass.

    Besides, if you lurk and a conversation took place while you were asleep - you can still get hints and tips from it!

    Cheers, Jason

  • well then =D I think I might be among the youngest ones in here then as most of you are talking about the history of mIRC and so on Wink I've been IRC'ing since 2001 and been using it widely when playing online FPS games.

    IRC clients for windows:
    - mIRC ( http://www.mirc.com ), the only client I actually can recommend. I have tried several others but you could always use Miranda-im aswell.

    From the miranda page:
    Miranda IM is a smaller, faster, easier instant messenger with support for multiple protocols. Miranda IM is designed to be resource efficient and easy to use while still providing many features including support for AIM, Jabber, ICQ, IRC, MSN, Yahoo, and more. Supplemented by hundreds of plugins and other content, Miranda IM is very flexible
    Get it from here: http://www.miranda-im.org


    Clients for *NIX boxes:
    - IRSSI ( http://www.irssi.org )
    - BitchX
    and so on and so on. Wink
    I myself use mIRC on my win box and IRSSI on my Debian box. Go in there with a SSH client.

    Oh, btw. Timezone is Seden, Stockholm, GMT +1
