ot: chat room?

Post by mihai » Sat Apr 25, 2009 2:50 am

i attempted this before with another forum i used to be on but it didn't work out. since this forum is actually more tech oriented i was thinking maybe you would enjoy a chat room [on IRC]. i think it would be productive to have real-time conversations regarding support and whatnot. post if you're interested and when there will be enough posts encouraging the idea i'll start the chat.

Yeah, a live chat would be great! I suggested this idea a while ago and pretty much got shit on I think if I remember correctly.

Adium does IRC??

I'll try some of the others. I've tried Colloquy and it sucks....

I met Mrs. Neb on IRC in 1995. Aah, the good ol' days of the interwebs, where you could meet a nice girl half way across the country and get engaged in a month...

...I believe this is now called "Mail Order Bride"

^ fuck that. Based on my conversations with Martyn, we have decided that I will be the main attraction for CurryLove.com. Use your imagination.

Not on IRC. Just use Meebo. Anyone can set one up, then it's just a matter of spreading the word.

Ideally Ableton would make one "official" by linking to it somewhere here, but I can't see that happening.

We had a Meebo one going for a while on ALDJ, but it wasn't used much.

Maybe there is a more general "music production" chatroom somewhere?

so it seems like this chat room idea is going great so far.
