IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat and it is one of the oldest and most established ways of chatting live on the Internet. The DCGLUG has joined the freenode  network.  You can access this server with any IRC client by connecting to irc.freenode.net and joining #dcglug.

If you don’t have suitable client please use the web interface. And we can help you from there, please enter a meaningful nickname.

As people are generally at work / school during the day time. The best time to catch anyone is Evening between 6:30pm and 10:30pm.  We are around during the day but may not respond  If you drop in and no one does respond come back it may be people are just busy with other things.
