==== What is IRC? ===
According to [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IRC Wikipedia], IRC is a form of instant communication (instant messenging) over the Internet. It is mainly designed for group (many-to-many) communication (unlike most of the other instant messenging services which only allow one-to-one communication) in discussion forums called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication.
