Our IRC channel is called #sshc. You'll find us chatting throughout the day/night here.

Joining #sshc


You can access this chat channel through Freenode two ways.

1. Freenode maintains a round-robin bouncer at Pick a server, connect with your IRC client, and /join #sshc.

2. Open any browser, go to, enter your chosen username and enter sshc as the channel.


We have an in-house IRC-to-web thing now, called Alice. Find Alice here:

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 as many of us chat from our offices.

Staying On Topic

... is not necessary. This is IRC, after all. Chat away about whatever.




Oscarbot is a Limnoria IRC bot that does usual boring IRC-botly duties like tracking when people come and go (oscarbot: seen minivanmegafun), searching for cat videos (oscarbot: google cat videos) and logging activity in the channel.

  • For help, say "oscarbot: help".
  • To list all installed plugins, do "oscarbot: list".
  • All plugins have multiple commands, say "oscarbot: list <pluginname>" to view them.
  • For help on a command, say "oscarbot: help <commandname>".

Oscarbot also announces changes made to the ssh:c wiki as soon as they are committed; and spews random Markov-chain phrases.

Baileybot is a smeggdrop-powered, Tcl-programmable bot. See: Baileybot
