Just me and Osarion and someone named xylem at the moment, and nobody is saying anything Smiley: glare

Download Pidgin and come join the cool kids Smiley: cool

http://ffxiv.zam.com/wiki/IRC

Channel: #FFXIV

I wrote a guide for configuring Pidgin for IRC (which I think is much better than Trillian personally), but it's on our LS forums and you would need to register to see it. If enough people are interested, I could put the guide up here.

Isn't IRC used mostly by folk over 35 that make text images like m(_ _)m and refuse to make facebook pages?

Pre-conversation to spare the time:

me has joined channel #FFXIV
<me> Hi guys
*10 minutes go by
<room> Oh hey
<me> Hey, so err, FFXIV right?
<room> Yeah... gonna be good
<me> Sure is.
<room> heh
*5 minutes go by
<me> I guess I'll catch you guys around
No response

I would come and join you guys but errr I kinda don't want to turn into one of you :o

I have a facebook page and am desperately trying to bring myself to get rid of it. **** you, Mark Zuckerberg, and your evil views on privacy!

Seriously, 10 years ago the common advice was "never give out your real name to strangers on the internet." It's still good advice. Just ask some of the people who get harassed by /b/. But thanks to facebook, it's all public by default.

Ok, end of rant.

so true to that.
imo, when it's called a "networking site", Facebook should let us choose who we want to connect to.
I m on FB to connect with my friends, share pics and stuff, but now, if my friend comments on their friend's (which i dunno) status or pictures, i would be able to see and browse thru all of that person's pictures. it's kinda ridiculous

Hmm... I'm 30 and refuse to have Facebook because I think it's lazy! Also I post and browse mostly on my phone at the moment so idling on IRC isn't the best idea... (i've not even looked to see if I can get it... hmm...)

Bumping this to say that there are two types of people. People in IRC and people who kill babies.

You don't kill babies, do you?

See, the thing is: I never tried either!

While I think joining an IRC is more socially (and morally) acceptable, there are some societies that find it okay to kill babies. I'm gonna have to weigh the pros and cons of both, and make my decision then.

*note* Killing babies may hinder my FFXIV playtime, whilst joining the IRC could enhance it. But then I remember the words of Sealab 2021's Communications officer, Sparks:
"RIBS!!! DRIPPING WITH SAUCE!!! MEAT FALLING OFF THE BONE!!!
..... Just trying to help out a single mother!
"

Not always true, there are privacy settings down to the last hair on your head - if you choose than randoms can't see your photos, you can make it happen....countless time I couldn't creep random girl's fb, i would know :P

Only people who use facebook have facebook pages. I've never used facebook and therefore have never needed a facebook page. I don't see what the point is.

I miss D&D. I used to get together with my friends every Tuesday night for it.

I played a Dwarf Bard. True story.

I use facebook to advertise when I'm selling something, but that's about it. It's a pretty good FREE(read: free!) advertising source. If I want to socialize I'll come to your house. No kidding, I don't even have text messaging on my cell phone.

Oh man, I remember ICQ, where instead of a username you got like an 8 digit number... and then people would try to give it out to you and you'd accidentally add someone completely different because you missed one little number. Those were the days...

IRC is Internet Relay Chat. It's new, but it's good! OK, new as of like twenty years ago... But still awesome.
