Allakhazam.com has all the information about the developer chat coming on Thursday, February 28, 2008. Here are the details:
To join IRC, you need to have an IRC client and set it up to join our network. There are many free IRC programs available on the web. I recommend Trillian and mIRC.
Once you have an IRC program, just add a connection and name it Allakhazam, or whatever you want. There are really only two things you need to fill in.
IRC Client Settings:
Host Servername: irc.allakhazam.com
Port: 6667, 6668, 6669, 5667 or 7000 (any one will work). Alternative, SSL-enabled ports: 6697 or 5697
Choose an IRC Identity
NickName: Your Allakhazam website user name
Alternative: Any username
Email Address: E-mail
We've integrated IRC with the website, in the sense that your Board name is your IRC nickname. When you first join IRC, you need to make Nickserv aware of your login name. You do this with the register command.
If you've never used IRC, be sure to take the link above for more comprehensive instructions.
