Today I'm announcing the official opening of the Glitch City Laboratories IRC chatroom, #glitchcity.Click here to go to the web chat interface
or set up your chat client to connect to #glitchcity on irc.eightzees.net.
This chatroom is governed by the same set of rules that GCLF is. As the official channel of the site, it is exempt
from the "what happens in IRC stays in IRC" rule usually enforced for third-party channels such as #zanzibar.BASIC IRC COMMANDS
(text in <brackets> is a placeholder. The word "channel" means chatroom)
* /join <channel>
joins a channel. If the channel does not exist, it is created
leaves the current channel.
disconnects from the server.
* /me <text>
creates "action text" that might look something like this: " * malacoda <text>".
* /msg <user>
sends a private chat message to another user. It is used to start private conversations.NICKNAME COMMANDS
* /nick <nickname>
changes your nickname. If the nickname you want is registered by someone else, you will be informed.
* /msg nickserv register <password>
registers your nickname with NickServ, the nickname service. Registration with NickServ is optional unless you are in a position of authority on the channel: registration is required to configure ChanServ (the channel service) to grant you any form of authority. Registration also allows you to reserve a nickname as your own and prevent others from taking it.
* /msg nickserv identify <password>
identifies your current nick to NickServ. This is like "logging in". If you connect using a registered nickname, NickServ will prompt you to "identify".
* /msg nickserv ghost <username> <password>
disconnects another user who is using your nickname. This is also useful if you disconnect but your nick remains connected to the server (as a "ghost" user).USING THE WEB INTERFACE
When you load the web applet, some security related dialogs will appear.
* If you see a dialog saying Do you want to run this application?
. You may also check the Always trust content from this publisher
to prevent this dialog from appearing in the future.
* If you see a dialog saying Block potentially unsafe components from being run?
. If you click Yes, the applet will not run properly.
