(Un)Official Frost* Live Chat
« on: November 07, 2008, 09:11:25 PM »
I'd like to remind everyone that we have an IRC channel open for discussing all things Frost*, and all things whatever else  :D

Here's a customized & Frosted* web-client (big thanks to benanne!!) which will automatically connect you:
http://users.skynet.be/fa221745/frostchat/

Or if you prefer the manual approach:

Server: irc.umbranet.org
Port: 6667 (default)
Channel: #Frost*

This network also has channels for other bands like Dream Theater, Ayreon, and more.

As far as calling it official, I'd like to, but I really would need the green light from Jem. He's stated before that he didn't know what IRC was, so I figured the band is not about to create their own (they're more forum-going types, anyway.)

I still don't know what it is.

Where can I see it?
Excuse me being so dumb about it all, I'm a simple old man who still thinks digital watches are a pretty neat idea. ;)

you need a chat client, like Adium for mac, and then plug in the info, and then it's a chat room.

You need an IRC-client. mIRC is a famous one for Win. Then you just connect via that client to with that information given. Chat-world :D

Here's a screenshot of my IRC client, for Jem to kind of get an idea of what it is...

It even comes with a nifty website that shows the chatting statistics...

If you'd like to give it a shot, Jem, here's a client you can use right on your browser.

http://www.web-irc.org/

Just plug in the info and hit connect... (no password needed)  ;)

benanne is working on a customized web-client that should automatically connect to the right server and channel... and could also possibly be added to the webpage here?

'Tis just as empty as it was the last several times I looked in there.  Perhaps a scheduled chat would ensure more Frost*ies in there at the same time.
...and I can feel the world is turning...turn around
