MakerGear IRC Channel

Assembling a MakerGear product and have a question? Need help? Just want to talk printing? The MakerGear IRC channel is growing into an excellent resource!! Once you are on FreeNode, type "/join makergearv2" (without the quotation marks) in the command prompt and press Enter. This is a little old skool...but written instructions plus IRC backup, is effective.

IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is a chat room where you can communicate in real-time with myself and/or botters familiar with MakerGear products. If you are looking for an IRC client, here are some options:

Direct (easy) Web Access:
FreeNode

Windows:
XChat
kvirc

Mac OS X:
Linkinus
Adium
Colloquy

Linux:
XChat
Irssi

Firefox IRC Add-on:
chatzilla

Oh, a lot of people on IRC are identified by handles (BotMaker, MendelDude, and stuff like that). If you use a handle and prefer not to have your real name used, please send me a private message letting me know you are so that I know what equipment you have - it really helps to know who you are talking to!!

The MakerGear Google Group is also a great resource!! Ask questions, post photos, give advice, fax mentis, incendium gloria cultum, et cetera, et cetera...
