Mitchell Viewing Party on IRC (this Friday - April 6)
« on: April 04, 2007, 08:34:26 AM »
Ok folks, we discussed this in another thread and I'm sorry I'm slow with the "info" for those of you know IRC (and I've seen a few of you in the room) it's going to be on irc.blitzed.org, in #rifftraxfans this Friday (April 6th) at 9:00 EST.  This is just a trial run I suppose.  If it works out, we'll do a few more. If it doesn't, well, we'll try something else (if you have day or conflicts and think things would be better at a different day or time, let me know).

This is very quick and dirty and I'll be adding to it.  I haven't had time to do a full FAQ and the one I have is at an idiot level.  I figure you guys deserve better because most of you are pretty quick.

Directions for those who are savy:
1) Log on to irc.blitzed.org
2) Join #rifftraxfans
2) Say Hello to everyone
3) Start Mitchell at the appropriate time
4) Enjoy and discuss the hilarity that is mst3k with the rest of us.

Webchat:
http://blitzed.org/chat
Enter a nickname in "nick" and "#rifftraxfans" in Chan (no quotes)
The people on the right of the popup window are in the room.
Type your messages at the bottom.


Directions for those who want to try some kind of software:

PC users:

My favorite software is mIRC. The PC section will tell you how to log onto mIRC but most other software works similiar.
http://www.mirc.com/ 
When you download and install mirc and start the program a window, a "program options" menu will pop up. When you open the program, "Connect" is highlighted.  It has a place for Full name, email, etc. These will be visible to everyone on the network.  I recommend using fakes.  I also recommend checking the box that says "invisable."  You can choose a nickname but blitzed lets you register nicks so it's not 100% guaranteed that your nickname will be accepted.  More on that later.  Right now we're working on logging on!

The next tab is "servers" and blitzed is probably not on the list.  What you need to do is click "add"  Enter Blitzed (or whatever you want) as the description, irc.blitzed.org as "IRC Server" and keep the port the default. Password is blank. Click add.

Make sure blitzed is highlighted and click "connect to server."  It should connect and the channel window should pop up.  You can enter "#rifftraxfans" in the top and click join (you can also delete, manage and add favorite channels).

The people present in the room are on the right hand side.  You type your messages at the bottom.


Macs:
http://www.ircle.com/
I've never used ircle and my friend tells me Macs now come with an IRC chat software too but she prefers Ircle.  She says you enter the same info as in mIRC above and it's very similiar in setup.  If you have any questions about it that I don't know the answer to, I can ask her (or maybe someone here is an Ircle pro)  I'm sure she'd be happy to help.  She's the one I always defer mac questions too.




Nickserv: Your Friendly Network Sysbot

Nickerv is there to protect your nickname and your identity so others can't pretend like they're you online. Nickserv is your friend (no matter how much it seems to harass you).  If you log on and Nickserv is asking you to change your nickname (or your nickname gets changed to guest), then you've got someone else's name (or one you've previously registered).  Software like mIRC can store your password but you have to manually type it on the webchat.

If your nickname does get changed to guest, you can change it by typing /nick newnick
Don't be a tool an accidentally change your name to newnick or change it back to the one you just kicked off of, please.

To register a nickname type:
 /msg NickServ REGISTER password E-mail

Use a real email address for this.  They send you an authentication code.  Your email doesn't show up.

To identify to your nickname:
 /msg NickServ identify password
(/ns identify password works too, but not on the webchat)

I think those are the basics.  I had to work this weekend or I would have worked on beefing it up. I will add more.

So all I need is my internet browser and I'm good, right?

I should be able to make it to this viewing, the more the merrier!

Yeah, you can chat with an Internet browser.  It's easier but for hard core chatters, the software lets you save preferences and such.  I doubt most of you guys care (that's why I put it first).

Aw what a great choice, too  -  Mitchell never stops being funny, no matter how many times you've seen it.

I'd really love to attend, but I've got to out to dinner with the girlfriend.

Hope it's a big success.

Don't forget to come in.  Bathtub and I are feeling lonely (at least I am).

Well, I ended up doing the dinner and a movie thing with my gf last night, so i wasn't able to make it.  Sorry.  Sounds like we didn't have too many people show...?

We can try again sometime I guess.  I'm almost always "on" IRC (rather I'm even at home is another story) so whatever day is good for everyone else.

I'm really surprised you guys had dates and stuff. Here I thought you were losers with no lives  :D

I'm only kidding!

I think we all know who the loser is with no life. 
But yes we need to do this and plan it  a little further ahead of time.

Great job with trying to set this up the first time though Amanda  :clap:

I feel like I haven't been on this board in forever! One month of nothing but sports will make you go insane. It's good to be back.  :D

How about starting a poll to see what days and times would be best for people?

I'm not 100% a loser.  I am on IRC all the time but you can ask my IRC friends, I'm generally not paying attention or even at home when I'm on...well, the fact that I have IRC friends makes me a bit of a loser doesn't it?  Umm, let's just skip over that part.

Just wait until I graduate and I lose my classes + my non-paying internships.  Imagine how much time I'll have then, bwhahahaha.  That's about 40-50 hours a week ;)
