      I think not...

      Actually, I have read the thread, and in kpac's opinion that IRC would be a bad idea and his reasoning for it, I feel that he/she/it is an idiot. It did pertain to the subject. However, your response did in no way pertain to the subject at hand. You could have private messaged me. One should look at the plank in his own eye before looking at the spec in another's.

      I think an IRC room would be a great idea for this site. I'm sure other's would enjoy it as well.

      Anyways... moving past all this sudden drama...

      I might start compiling a draft of a ComputerHope Chatroom.

      I think that, because Nathan knows how to use IRC quite well, and since there are so many clients available for IRC, it might be best to go IRC. There are also many networks to go by. I think that we can figure out networks a bit later, right now, I am thinking of three, if you have cons/pros to these specific networks, please feel free to comment:

      randomnet.org (Which, would be a good option since JohnK partially owns the network, meaning that we could get quick support in the event that things go awry. Unfortunately, Randomnet had a bit of a meltdown, and is still being repaired. )

      freenode.net (Freenode, as many of you may already know, is a very large network, used by thousands of people. This has its advantages, and disadvantages. There are many computers supporting the network, but, it could take longer to fix channel issues.)

      blitzed.org (Blitzed.org is a network that ComputerHope has used successful in the past. Its well supported, though not as large as Freenode. Its a much smaller network, so channel specific issues can be fixed quickly)

      One thing to keep in mind: Its easy to switch networks, so it wouldent really be a problem if one went down, or if we decided to switch for some reason.

      Well, we have 11 users who say that they would use it.

      I think thats good enough, since most of us are in the US (we will get more users later, I guarantee) we will all be online at around the same time (subtract timezones...)

      LOL!  So, .0004% of the registered members on this site would use it?

      I would've just implemented it without asking...just to see how many would actually have found it and put it to use.
