The folks who live in the chat room swear by their dedicated IRC chat software. Here are a few of our favorites and where to get them and how to set them up:
for Windows computers:
mIRC: used by 90 percent of the cyberstampers chat heads, this is a powerful, yet simple to use program. It is shareware, so you can use it for 30 days, decide if you like it, then register it if you do. There is a one-time request for $20. This goes to the creator of mIRC software and is the same as buying a CD of fonts or clip art, or any other software program. That fee covers any and all future updates to the program. This software is perfectly safe to download and use. Of course, in today's world you must have anti-virus software running on your computer, whether you download mIRC or any other programs available online.
Get it at http://www.mirc.com and set it up like this:
After you have installed mIRC (or any other chat software) simply go to our schedule page and click on the highlighted links to join our classes and chats.
IRCLE: Ircle is the premier software for your Mac. Go to their homepage,
Chatzilla: an add-on to the free Firefox browser. Absolutely free and very easy to use. No setup required, other than filling out your personal information. When at the Chatzilla command line type /attach 22.214.171.124:4000 then, after being connected, type /join #cyberstampers (or whatever room you want).
