Anyone know of some good chat room software they recommend for CAG?
Maybe we should just go with IRC...

What do you think?

The one you had before was decent. IRC may be a little too complicated for some. Although a tutorial should take care of that.

IRC's complicated? Really? You're kidding. I say this w/o sarcasm but even as a noob playing around w/ a computer, I was still able to figure out how to IRC. It can't be THAT difficult.

Its not that difficult, but I have tried o explain to friends how to download stuff from it, and they cant handle it for some reason. I find it very easy to use. But selecting a server and a room can be a challenge for some.

I vote IRC

It's the norm for chatting I thought. Then we can even post quotes on bash.org.

There are java apps for IRC to make stuff easier for the IRC noobs (like me), like this one:

I say IRC since I can use it within opera, but I still find it hard to find some servers at times.

Gameplay is what makes a game worth playing - not story or graphics

I agree. IRC would be best for chatting and add the java IRC client for the noobs.

Good ole IRC... and it's been around forever. It isn't all that complicated to me, I figured it out rather quickly (which was a really long time ago in high school)
