Join us at our IRC channel.
Attention: Visiting our IRC channel is mandatory for beta testers

IRC Server: irc.freenode.net
IRC Channel: #uniserver

You need an IRC client like:

Well, those are the 4 main IRC clients we have seen on our channel :) You can find more IRC clients here.

For a web based IRC client, click here

Our channel's IRC bot is called UniIRCBot. You are encouraged to register with it (also remember to identify to it when you join, if it doesn't recognize you by your hostmask). This should make it easier for us to contact you (on IRC) and also serves as evidence that you've visited the channel (for the beta testers)..

Here are the commands: To Register:

/msg UniIRCBot register <name> <password>

To Identify:

/msg UniIRCBot identify <name> <password>

Note: The two commands above must always be used in private (which means that you must type the exact command listed above (well, just replace <name> with your nickname and <password> with your password) with the /msg)

I'll let the bot do the rest of the explaining:

(MrX) @help register
(UniIRCBot) MrX: ('''register <name> <password>''') -- Registers <name> 
with the given password <password> and the current hostmask of the 
person registering. You shouldn't register twice; if you're not 
recognized as a user but you've already registered, use the addhostmask 
command to add another hostmask to your already-registered user, or use 
the identify command to identify just for a session. This '''(1 more 
message)'''
(MrX) @more
(UniIRCBot) MrX: command (and all other commands that include a 
password) must be sent to the bot privately, not in a channel.
(MrX) @help identify
(UniIRCBot) MrX: ('''identify <name> <password>''') -- Identifies the 
user as <name>. This command (and all other commands that include a 
password) must be sent to the bot privately, not in a channel.

After registration, you'll be able to use commands like @Note and others..
