Thanks to some friendly folks from the FrogPants community and
The Morning Stream chat (jdhore, Malynor, & Kevin) and of course, 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):
  • 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 REGISTER password 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.
  • If you’re new to IRC (as I am) here are some basics:
See you on the live stream!
Wondering, “Why animafax?” Animafax Entertainment happens to be the name of my company. Starcrossed, The Dating Digital Podcast and my illustration and design work all fall under that umbrella.
