I'm all for an RPG room in the chat. And the main forum page should point out which rooms those who are online are in.............................'r...something like that.
As far as IRC, I don't have the slightest clue as to how I get on IRC. I know you need a specific prog. but I don't know what it is.
"I am a Canadian by birth, but I am a Highlander by blood and feel under an obligation to do all I can for the sake of the Highlanders and their literature.... I have never yet spoken a word of English to any of my children. They can speak as much English as they like to others, but when they talk to me they have to talk in Gaelic."

www.mirc.com explains irc (internet relay chat), it also supplies a test version of their client. I connect to irc via trillian. www.ceruleanstudios.com. it's a client to connect to icq, aim, msn, yahoo and irc at the same time because some chat-programs may cause system conflicts..
you have masses of chat servers with masses of rooms in it, and you can make your own one without problems.
I wish we could host a server just for CRN somewhere. I asked my Brother - in - law if he would host a channel on his, but he said nay to it I would host it myself if my link were more reliable. That's what I think is needed though, a dedicated IRC server jusr for CelticRadio. That way I don't have to use that lame Graphical application to get to it.
