Anyone use IRC?

~tskaalgard

And if so, what are some of your favorite channels/rooms?

I usually frequent Lainchan's IRC server. Pretty tight knit and tons of activity. Beyond that, haven't found a good active server/channel.

I mostly use it to practice Esperanto, plus a musician I like has his own server

Is the MBR server active? Last time I went in there it wasn't. Also tried to get into the secret ARG channel but was too dumb to figure it out. What servers have Esperanto?

reply

Forgot to answer your second question: the main Esperanto channel on Freenode is plenty active.

If you mean the IRC channel, not a ton. It's usually more so when he streams, though.

MBR is great. I'm not much of a casual talker, so I'm ending up just glancing at the chat while he streams. I'd probably get into IRC if I had someone whom I'd already know from elsewhere as an anchor (?). I don't have a great track record of internet acquaintance. Barely any record, to be honest. Every attempt at making a new pen-pal just falls flat, even without a non-native-language barrier. It feels artificial (probably mutually so) and so dies out after a few exchanges on random topics.

I've once half-assed an IRC server on my personal VPS. Been chatting for a few days with two friends until the novelty washed off and "our" IRC was left empty. I think it's still up, haven't bothered to check in the last few months.

Eons ago. Not much time for it. And my wife would likely experience jealousy. I know that's her problem, but it packs a a drippy faucet, "sands of time" wearying effect I'm no match for.
