Message from Tom Hermosilla

I'm hosting the chat on Tuesdays, and TRASK hosts the Saturday chat. We've had lots of fun discussing the upcoming festival, current storylines, favorite characters, trivia, and top 10 lists!

If you have an on-line service where you can see an IRC button, I believe all you need to do is click on that button. Most on-line services don't require you to enter in a server name or port number.
Once you get on, you'll see some messages about the server scroll by.
All you need to do is enter in /join #Dark_Shadows. All IRC commands start with a /. You should then "see" the room with some people "talking". Any text you enter in without the / is considered you talking. You will probably be asked somewhere along the line to enter in a nickname.

If you do need to enter in a server or a port, you can try us.undernet.org for the server, and port 6667. Anybody with an ISP (not an on-line service like AOL and GNN) will have to get their own client and enter in the server and port number and a few other options.

I will be holding the chat on the UNDERNET. I tried chat on DALNET and did not have even a single participant from 8:45 til 12 midnight EST. So I think we are stuck with the UNDERNET, and we'll just have to put up with netsplits and lag and some occasional problems connecting. Maybe some people can't get to DALNET?

For those who are new, here's the UNDERNET info I posted previously:

Here is some IRC info for you. You should use the server closest to you. I'm sorry I don't have any servers other than U.S. and Canadian listed. Please try http://servers.undernet.org/server-list.html if you need a more comprehensive list of servers. Another great site is http://www.undernet.org which has a whole bunch of info regarding the undernet.

My nickname on the UNDERNET will be Barnabas, unless the person I share it with shows up, in which event I'll be Barnabas_.

I have submitted an application to cservice. After it is approved (which may take a few more weeks), they will put a bot there (called either X or W), which will keep the room open even when no "humans" are around. So people can stop by and chat whenever they like. My favorite server at the moment is sanDiego.ca.us.undernet.org, port 6660, but you can also try us.undernet.org, port 6667.

We look forward to having you join us!
