- Server: chat.freenode.net (Either the standard port 6667 or the alternate port 8000 should work.)
- Channel: #mla2009
If you don't already have an IRC client, there are several options available at no cost.
- If you have Pidgin or Trillian installed, they both provide IRC access.
- If you use Firefox, the Chatzilla add-on is an option.
- Colloquy is a good choice for Mac users.
- If you can't install a client, or if you just want to try it out, connect through the web at Mibbit.com (IRC: Freenode, Nick: pick a name, Channel: #mla2009)
