Best Enemies
For a bevy of reasons, we've decided to move the b_e chatroom over to IRC. You may be afraid, babies, but IRCs not as scary as it sounds, and YANA. I will be your father-figure. Put your tiny hand in mine. Then take that tiny hand, put it on your mouse and/or touchpad, and navigate to:

1. http://www.mibbit.com/chat/

2. Then click the first drop-down menu and go down to foonetic. Type in your 'nickname' and press go.

3. A foonetic tab will become available in the top left corner of this screen. Click it.

4. In the text box at the bottom of this window, type '/join #bestenemies'.

5. You are in! From here you can create a regular account, ask after your accustomed divergent rooms, ask functionality questions, play around with the FREAKING AWESOME new controls, etc.

There's already a #bespoilered for spoilery conversation after each new eps airs, a #biancas for rp, a #thebikeshed for awkwardly sexual rp, and more to come. There will further updates on this, re: the new rooms break-down, et al. Tonight during the watchalong (I presume at 8 BST as per usual, and of Sound of Drums) someone will like as not be in the disposablechat room to guide you through the log-on process, if you have any problems.

WELCOME TO THE SEXY NEW WORLD ORDER. Can I let go of your hand yet? This is getting awk and kinda sweaty.

For those of us who have used IRC before, and are more familiar with it, what server are you on?
23rd-Apr-2010 03:38 pm (UTC)
Foonetic, via mibbit, and channel #bestenemies .

Putting #bestenemies in the channel space at the main screen saves you a step, jsyk.

I tried this. I think I am just chat impaired. I didn't really know what the deal was with the nick name, and I had no idea what to do after all this in order to see anyone. The controls may be awesome, but they are a bit like getting in a manual car, if you have only ever drivel automatic. I was just completely lost.

Have fun.

Heh, I think my actual oppinion on automatic transmisions leaked out. I meant driven not drivel.

Give me a time when you're available and the timezone, please, and somebody, probably me, let's face it, will be in Disposable to guide your through the log on process. It's really not that hard once you get the swing of it, and I'd hate to lose you as a chat regular over something silly. :)

Probably if no time if particularly convenient for you before then, people will be in Disposable to guide people over to IRC right before and during Sunday's watchalong.

Sorry so much if I sounded snitty, I didn't mean to, just very frustrated with tech I don't understand. My fault not yours. I will try a few more times.

Did you ever get this to work, or do you still need help?

Third try was the charm, I made it in for the Sound of Drums watch using mertondingle's suggestion above. I have just been too busy to get back since. Thanks for checking up on me.

Cool! Good to hear.
12th-Jun-2010 10:34 am (UTC)
Hi! Help a chat newbie please? When it says 'nickname' does it mean our actual real life nickname,our LJ username, or what?

Thanks! That was what I figured but I wanted to be sure...
