Please be aware that all conversations in this chat room are logged, so do not reveal any confidential or private information here that you would not like other people to know.

If you would like to send a private message to another user, that only that user can see and respond to, then you can double click on their nickname in both the web based client and a desktop client and a private message window will appear.

It is possible to connect to our chat room using a standard IRC client that you may have installed on your computer.

For windows a very popular client is Mirc and for the Macintosh a popular client is Ircle.

Much of the time we discuss general topics in the chat room but when someone comes in and asks for help we will focus on helping that person.

Please do not interrupt or otherwise interfere with that help unless you have something to add to the discussion.
