High Weirdness by E-Mail 2.1 (2 of 2)

        SUPPLEMENT TO high weirdness by email v2.1

*** what this file is ***

At the last minute, trying to put something together for release, I have
simply joined together some "unprocessed" files - they describe:
i] some things from the slopoke ftp site
ii] contents of the red.css political archive [ftp]
iii] scott yanoff's internet resource list
iv] an IRC FAQ
v] some stuff 'left over' from the future-culture FAQ
vi] cult of the dead cow newfiles
vii] archive contents
viii] email addresses for sf fan groups
In the interests of getting info out, etc, this hodgepodge is going out in a
separate file - if anyone wants to archive it as well, & you're on a dos
system, I suggest weird2-1.doc and weird2-1.sup as file names.

- all these files available from slopoke ftp site

*** THE IRC FAQ ***
(1) What is IRC?
        IRC stands for "Internet Relay Chat". It was written by Jarkko
Oikarinen ( in 1988. Since starting in Finland, it
has been used in some 20+ countries spanning the globe.  It was designed
as a replacement for the "talk" program but has become much much more
than that. IRC is a multi-user chat system, where people convene on
"channels" (a virtual place, usually with a topic of conversation) to
talk in groups, or privately.
        IRC gained international fame during the late Persian Gulf War,
where updates from around the world came accross the wire, and most
people on irc gathered on a single channel to hear these reports.

(2) How is IRC set up?
        The user runs a "client" program (usually called 'irc') which
connects to the irc network via another program called a "server".
Servers exist to pass messages from user to user over the irc network.

(3) How do I use a client?
        You either compile the source yourself, have someone else on
your machine compile the source for you, or use the TELNET client.
"telnet". Please only use the latter when you
have no other way of reaching irc, as this resource is quite limited.

(4) Where can I get source for the irc client?
UNIX client-> /irc/clients
              there is also a client avaliable with the server code.
EMACS elisp-> /irc/clients/elisp
EMACS elisp "irchat"-> /irc/clients/elisp
VMS -> /irc/clients/vms
REXX client for VM-> /irc/clients/rxirc
MSDOS-> /irc/clients/msdos

Macintosh-> /irc/clients/macintosh

(5) Which server do I connect to?
        It's usually best to try and connect to one geographically
close, even though that may not be the best. You can always ask when you
get on irc. Here's a list of servers avaliable for connection:

This is, by no means, a comprehensive list, but merely a start. Connect
to the closest of these servers and join the channel #Twilight_Zone
When you get there, immediately ask what you want. Don't say "I have a
question" because then hardly anyone will talk.

(6) OK, I've got a client and I'm connected to a server? Now what?
        It's probably best to take a look around and see what you want
to do first. All irc commands start with a "/", and most are one word.
Typing /help will get you help information. /names will get you a list
of names, etc.

The output is typically something like this-> (Note there are more
channels than this, this is just sample output).

Pub: #hack      zorgo eiji Patrick fup htoaster
Pub: #Nippon    @jircc @miyu_d
Pub: #nicole    MountainD
Pub: #hottub    omar liron beer Deadog moh pfloyd Dode greywolf SAMANTHA

"Pub" means public (or "visible") channel. "hack" is the channel name.
"#" is the prefix (see number 7 below). A "@" before someone's nickname
indicates he/she is the "Channel operator" of that channel. A Channel
Operator is someone who has control over a specific channel. It can be
shared or not as the first Channel Operator sees fit. The first person
to join the channel automatically gets Channel Operator, and can share
it with anyone he/she chooses (or not).
