IRC Chat

Chat about artificial life and other things...

You can use the following embedded IRC client to chat on either Freenode ( or AFNet ( channels you want to chat on are not restricted. By default you will be added to #alife on Freenode, which is an informal chatroom I've setup for artificial life discussion and random chat ;). If you are new to the whole IRC thing then you might like to view this tutorial. To get started chatting just enter your Nickname & Realname in the text boxes below and press Login. For less restricted access away from the default I have setup click Advanced to fill out details of the server and channel you would like to join.
