IRC Quick Start
IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat. The worldwide IRC networks offer a virtual meeting place where people from all over the world can meet and talk.
Two things are needed to use IRC:
- a client program needs to be installed on your computer. There are many different clients.
- a server out on the Internet that the client connects to.
