Remember to use your favorite web search engine for more about specific topics. Here also are some other good places to visit, for context and useful information:

- If you don't know how to connect to an IRC server, you can access it here, running as a java applet inside your browser.
- If you need help finding an IRC client for your operating system or help setting one up to connect, feel free to ask once you're connected.
