Do you like to talk about politics or current
events? The web is great, posting is okay, but sometimes don't
you want a real time response? If you do, come talk to us
on the IRC channel #news_garden. Connect to
Undernet IRC, type /join #news_garden, hit enter and
there we'll be.
If you aren't familiar with IRC (Internet Relay Chat) the
best way to get to it is to download mIRC at www.mirc.com.
(It's shareware which means you can try it until you decide
you want to buy it.)
Download mIRC and install. (It installs
in a snap.) Then fire it up while you're connected to the
internet. In the mIRC menu go to File > Options
and you'll get a dialogue box. The first heading is Connect.
There you'll find a scrolling menu with LOTS of different
IRC servers. Scroll down toward the bottom and choose one
of the Undernet servers. I find those in Scandinavia
work best. Then hit "Connect to IRC Server"
and in a minute you'll be there. Then type /join #news_garden
and all your political chat dreams will be come true! The
first time shouldn't take but about 10 minutes total. After
that less than a minute.
Come see us. We chat mostly about politics
and current events and our chatters represent all points of
We even have a pretty nice website here at
