Ssh:c IRC Channel
\#sshc is the IRC channel where you'll find a lot of us idling in.
\#sshc is on Freenode.
Freenode maintains a list of IRC servers you can connect to at http://freenode.net/irc_servers.shtml. Pick a server, connect with your IRC client, and /join #sshc.
If you'd like to connect using WebChat, try https://webchat.freenode.net and join #sshc.
We have an in-house IRC-to-web thing now, called Alice. Find Alice here: http://alice.sshchicago.org:9000/
More information about it, including how to get an account, is on its wiki page.
Don't be a jerk. Keep the chat and links mostly work-safe, many of us chat from our offices.
Staying On Topic
