OK...so there I was, looking through the new posts and there was one on how to get to the webbased version of everywhere chat for APCChat (http://irc.everywherechat.com:8000
and /join #apcchat).
I then went through the pain of figuring out how to set up IRC in Trillian again. Once in the chat room someone (you know who you are) mentioned the good intention of putting together a post on how to set up mIRC (or other IRC client software). So here it is...
First, download mIRC from here
It's good for people to know who you are. So you should set up your nickname. I've whited out my real name and e-mail, but you can tell where they go. Your nickname should go in the box where you see "Turbomkt" in this picture:
Once you've got it set up, you've got to add some settings. First is the server. It should be irc.everywherechat.com:6667. 6667 is the port number and is generic to IRC. It should look like this:
Once you've connected to the server, you'll want to join a chat room. When you first come in you should get a pop up like this:
Enter #apcchat here.
Another way to get there, if you're already connected to the server is the "Join channel" selection. Get there from here:
and enter this:
At this point, things should be working! Enjoy...
