  • So, Chat Room.

    If I get bored and throw up a java chat room, who would come? It would be IRC based, which means that you'd go to a link, and a Java applet would open, and it'd connect you to the room. For those familiar with IRC, the IRC connection information would be available as well.

                Chat Room Connection Information

                UnOfficial SIW Forum Chat Room

                What this is?
                As the page states, its an IRC chat room. If you are familiar with IRC, point your client of choice to chat-solutions.org:6667 and join #SecurityInfoWatch.

                If you are not, don't worry, its not that hard to connect through the Java Applet. Basically, all you need is a browser that supports Java (Most do), and that's it. Read the little missive on the page, click the last link on the bottom. It'll pop up.

                Why am I SIWUser3452?
                Because I am lazy, and don't feel like coding a form to ask you your nickname, just to have it bounce. This way, everyone can connect and get in, and then change their nick to what they want after connecting.

                So, how do I change my name?
                Your name is your "nick." There are two ways to do this. The first is by typing the name you want in the box on the lower right hand corner, under the words "Change Nick to"...

                The second is with the /command /nick <newname>, where <newname> is the nick you want. Do not put the <>s, that's a programming convention.

                What can I name myself?
                Be aware that some characters are not allowed in a nick. These include spaces and some special characters like , and < and >. Be inventive.

                Who runs this thing?
                The IRC network is neutral, and supports new channels. I run the channel #SecurityInfoWatch, and host it as an unofficial chat room. This means that I'm usually one of the users with a ! in front of my name, or at the very least a @. These are "founder" and "operators" respectively. Sorta like moderators.

                Anything else I need to know?
                Yes. You can join multiple channels, however, you do so at your risk. I don't know what all the channels on the IRC network are, I don't go into most of them. Individual channels (rooms) are run by different people. While the rules are simple on #SecurityInfoWatch, I can't guarantee what they are on any other channel. Enter them at your own risk.

                I use multiple nicks on multiple networks. If I suddenly appear as a strange nick, such as Galvatron, don't worry about it.

                            I'm gonna work on dropping an eggdrop bot in there to monitor the channel, and display number of users on the front page. I'm also going to work on prettifying the front page, and having multiple screen resolutions of the applet.

                            I haven't checked the connection logs to see what kind of screen resolution most of you use, but I will shortly.

                            Also, for those of you with PDAs that support Java, I'll be putting a small screen resolution on the site for those that want to use their iPaqs or Treos or whatever on the thing.

                            And finally, the eggdrop will be loaded with some !commands (You'll see what I mean when its done), and the website's IRC page will list how many users there are in the channel, their names, and how idle they are.
