Chat

Come hangout and idle with us! UnLab Chat Realm:


If you don't have an IRC Client installed, Note: I would personally install a chat client as this would allow you to idle in the chat room in case nobody is around at that time to respond, but will see your message at a later time and attempt to respond to you. 

For a quick test check out (Which is also above): 
http://webchat.freenode.net?channels=UnLondon

Nickname: 
Channels: #unlondon 
Auth to services: doesnt matter unless you dont want people using your nickname which you would have to setup first by login on without this check and running the /help register command.

Say hello!

For the more tech savvy you can use a Linux box + "screen" + irssi + SSH + WiFi via:
http://bbssh.org/downloads/ works flawless but a ridiculous setup.

Advanced Stuff: (Ignore or dive in, ask in the channel for further details)

We have multiple tech savvy ways setup to connect via BNC or SSH/Screen/IRSSI

BNC (short for bouncer) is a piece of software that is used to relay traffic and connections in computer networks"

Basically it will keep a persistence connection for you in the chat channel and relay the prior chat to catch up on what you missed while not logged in.
Refer to: ZNC

SSH/Screen/IRSSI you can SSH into a server connect to a Screen session and log on with IRSSI a terminal IRC Client.
Refer to: Screen

Note: There is a script running on UnLabBot that pulls Unlondon/Unlab content into the channel from Twitter. 
Note: There is a script running that converts the Text To Speech from the chat and can be heard in the server room if you are @ the UnLab.
