C_t_f and I recently rediscovered the IRC channel, and we want to revive it! It'd be less intensive than the Skype group (which is great for people with less powerful computers) and also does not require a Skype account. I (and I believe c_t_f as well) plan to keep it running pretty often in the background, so if you want to the same, feel free, or you can just pop in and chat whenever you want. To join the IRC chat group, go here, make yourself a nickname, and click the 'Go' button. I'd also like to petition to have the IRC button added back to the front page if possible.
