Nieuwe chat (Kwebbelhoekje)

Post by Bieneke » Sun Mar 01, 2009 7:47 pm

Hi all,

We have a new Kwebbelhoekje. It is an IRC chat, which means that you can access it from any IRC application.

Channel & server

Just search for channel ##kwebbelhoekje (or type "/join ##kwebbelhoekje"). Mind the two hashmarks at the beginning!

The server is irc.freenode.net.

Alternative IRC software

You can use the PJIRC web application on this forum (just click "chat" in the top menu), but there are a lot more advanced free desktop applications available. Just search for "IRC software" or "IRC application". One of the most popular IRC applications is mIRC.

If you do not feel like installing anything, you can also use a web application like Mibbit (http://www.mibbit.com).

Using IRC

If you are a new IRC user, you can register your nickname by typing "/nickserv register yournickname". You do not have to do this; it is just a way to prevent other IRC users from using the same nickname. After this, follow the instructions on your screen. You will be asked to enter an email address to verify your registration. To see a list of commands used in IRC, just type "/help". For a complete overview, you can visit http://www.irchelp.org/irchelp/irctutorial.html.

I am new to IRC myself, so - assisted by IRC-savvy Grytolle - I am still figuring out how everything works. ;)

This KH is rather limited. You can only read that part of the conversation that took place while you were logged on. Also, there is no possibility to list the users who are in the KH (maybe there is, but I have not figured out how do this). At least, for the time being, we have a place to chat again.

Groetjes,

Bieneke

For anyone who is using a Mac, Ircle is a very good IRC programme. It's layout can be briefly confusing if you are brand new to IRC (as I found out last night: installed mine all in Dutch as well so there were loads of new words to learn), but Bieneke's instructions above are great stepping stones to understanding how it works and your first channel will be the kwebbelhoekje :D.

If anyone is using Linux I would recommend irssi

http://irssi.org

It is a terminal based IRC client developed for Unix
Although originally oriented on Unix users now it is also available for other systems (e.g. Windows).
They provide a source code, so you can install it on virtually any system.

Hope this helps

For anybody using screen-reading software with Windows, mIRC is accessible. The web-based chat pjirc thing from this forum is not accessible to screen-readers but mIRC is.
I haven't found an accessible IRC client for the Mac yet but I haven't looked. :P

Vanaf vandaag worden de chatlogs op het forum gepubliceerd. We hebben nog geen chatarchief, maar EetSmakelijk bewaart voor ons de chatlogs. :-D

Als je al lid bent van het forum, hoef je niets bijzonders meer te doen om te chatten in het Kwebbelhoekje. Je hoeft alleen maar op 'chat' te klikken, bovenaan deze pagina (tussen help en zoeken) terwijl je ingelogd bent op het forum. Dan kom je automatisch in het kwebbelhoekje terecht en als er ook andere mensen zijn, kun je chatten.

Once you're a member of the forum you don't have to sign up anywhere else to chat in the Kwebbelhoekje. Just log in on the forum and click on the 'chat' button that appears at the top of the forum (between help and search). You will then automatically enter the Kwebbelhoekje and if there are other people there, you can chat.

Hi all,

is this chat still active from time to time? And if it is - when do I have the biggest chance to meet anyone?

Greetings,

Stardust2

I haven't seen any chat activity in ages, but you might be able to get people to the chatbox if you announce the time that you plan to be online.
You've got the best chance if you choose a time when it's evening in the Netherlands and Belgium, preferably in the weekend.

I've asked Bieneke to bring back the chatbox on the frontpage, but appearently, that's not so easy.

Good luck,
Joke

Thank you @Joke!
Hm, we´ll see... I am online from time to time when I am at the computer, most times not regularly... But I will be online today in the evening, around 20.00 o´clock, so 8.00 p.m. Central European time as in the Netherlands or Belgium. I think I´ll be on then for about two or three hours. Maybe I´ll not answer at once, but I´ll check every few minutes.
Tomorrow it should be nearly the same, but then I cannot be on so long as I have to get up early on Monday for work.

Of course I can also help anyone who learns German as this is my native tongue! Maybe I can give something back on this way...

OK - see you perhaps. ;-)

Best regards,

Stardust2
