Chat Room is down again, and probably will be for the day, maybe longer.. in the mean time, I've setup a IRC channel #trc on irc.freenode.com, I'm logged in, and everyone is welcome to join me. If you don't have a IRC client, mIRC (http://www.mirc.com/get.html) is a good one.

Thanks, Connor

In Regards to chat being down and Alex "fighting" (tho I dare say its not a fight) with the developers it reminds me of something a freind told me as I was griping about some in-house code monkeys. "Do you know how to tell which developers to fire and which to keep? Put them all in a room, Throw in a hand grenade and keep the dead ones!"

Personally - I'd keep the one that, in the few seconds allotted, disassembled the grenade, embedded sensors, an MCU and camera, programmed my image and DNA signature, reassembled it, and then lobbed it back...

Of course if he/she did it right you would not be able to hire them.

I take comfort in the fact that I wouldn't get hired, yet survive..

Nor fire them. It works out.

For those people who use AIM, MSN, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber etc, you may be interested in using Pidgin.im (http://pidgin.im). It will allow you to sign an IRC account as well, so you can be on AIM, MSN etc and the chatroom at the same time. It's one way to be in there a lot.

If you use firefox then Chatzilla is a great addon that works well for IRC.

Oh yeah, Thanks a lot Connor for setting this up in the mean time. I miss my robo-chat! +rep

Is the irc chat still up? I seem to be having trouble connecting.

Yep it's still there, as a matter of fact there are several of us in the room now.

Okay, moving away from the public IRC to a privately maintained one. Goto chat.trossenrobotics.com:6667 main chat room is channel #trc.

We're working on a web-based IRC client, however, you can use your fav IRC client. I strongly recommend you register your nickname and identify when you connect.

Thanks, Connor
