Just a little poll to see if there is any interest in an Obsidian IRC channel...

 

EDIT: I've established an unofficial Obsidian IRC channel.

 

Join up now at: irc://irc.quakenet.org:6667/obsid

 

That is: irc.quakenet.org, port 6667, channel #obsid

 

Come one, come all!

 

Arg stupid forum doesn't support IRC links.

Yes. I used to start a chat with every female person I could find on IRC way back when I was 16.

 

 

"Hi" and "m/f" were always the first things I typed. And if the answer was "male", the third thing I'd type would be "Bye." :(

Which reminds me that for a while my IRC nick was Anarch and, because of that, I'd have lots of clueless guys chatting me up because they thought I was a gal named Ana. And quite a few of those, after I said I was a guy, wouldn't believe me and kept going at it, convinced that I was lying about my gender. It didn't help that my nick was at the top of the list.

That often also happens if you add "ie" to your nick. E.g. "Krezzie". They must be quite desperate.

I use IRC, good that you took the incentive to kick this up.

 

I'm "Muser" there.

I was raised by polar bears. I had to fight against blood thirsty wolves and rabid penguins to get my food. Those who were too weak to survive were sent to Sweden.

 

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves furry hentai.

So let us go and embrace the rustling smells of unseen worlds

I use mIRC but for more devious and perverse purposes.... :lol:

There was a time when I questioned the ability for the schizoid to ever experience genuine happiness, at the very least for a prolonged segment of time. I am no closer to finding the answer, however, it has become apparent that contentment is certainly a realizable goal. I find these results to be adequate, if not pleasing. Unfortunately, connection is another subject entirely. When one has sufficiently examined the mind and their emotional constructs, connection can be easily imitated. More data must be gleaned and further collated before a sufficient judgment can be reached.

I don't anymore, but before the internet was 'all the rage' and filled with multimedia doohickeys, I used IRC a lot.

 

It is a fun extenstion of forums.

Maybe if I have time/feel motivated to install mIRC again I'll try popping in sometime. No promises tho. :wacko:

Back in my day, I chatted with people in group chat on a multi-line MBBS system...
