Thanks to some friendly folks from the FrogPants community and
The Morning Stream chat (jdhore, Malynor, & Kevin) and of course Thinstack.net, I have a new chat room! Previously, I had been using the default Ustream chat room. Lately I have been really frustrated with the need for multiple logins per session as well as missed messages.
If you’ve been in the chat and thought I was ignoring you, I’m sorry!
The new IRC chat room is accesible through the webchat client embeded on the LIVE Stream page. I simply replaced the old Ustream chat. Previously, only those with a Ustream account could log in and chat.
Now anyone can join in!
If you prefer you can use your own IRC client. I happen to use Colloquy for Mac. Here is the connection info and some basics for the chat.
- Host (chat server): irc.thinstack.net
- Channel (room): #animafax
- If you log in through webchat, you will be given a random, numbered nickname starting with “STAR”
- To change your nickname, type “/nick newnick” (replace ‘newnick‘ with your desired name)
- To register your nickname (always have the same name) type, “
/msg NickServ REGISTERpassword emailaddress” (replace ‘password’ and ‘emailaddress’ with appropriate info.)
- The next time you log in, click the “Login to Services” box and fill in your login and password.
