Classic Amiga IRC Channel
« on: September 21, 2009, 04:53:50 PM »
A while back, I created #amiga68k on the Amigaworld IRC network (irc.amigaworld.net). Whilst popular at first, it dwindled down to nothing. But recently there has been a classic Amiga revival and people are now occupying the channel once more.

The channel was setup for those of us stuck in the past and still loving the OS 1-3.9 Amiga systems.

There is some good chat in there (albeit a lot of idling, but that's true of most IRC channels in my experience). Its a lot of fun, and you can find people using their classic and nextgen Amigas to actually chat in the channel, for example when I am logged on as A600, I am using my Amiga 600, 68000 (7MHz) machine with 2MB RAM, OS3.1 and a 512MB Flash Hard Drive. I connect to my router via a PCMCIA Wireless card.

Come and join in sometime if you want somewhere else to chat about classic Amiga software and hardware!

Will drop by sometime, though my A1200T is in storage so it will be on my Dell I'm afraid!

I'll try to drop in more often from my A1200. IRC while I'm pixelling can be very distracting, but I'm hooked, and have been ever since my first AmIRC experience back in the mid nineties. Of course, these days I'm using WookieChat for IRC, but I still haven't upgraded past my 030/50 :p

I'll try to drop by and visit, but I have never been a big IRC user.  I would like to become more so in the future.  Nothing beats instant answers to your questions and hanging out with like minded people.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)
