Ok, so #retrogamer is up on irc.quakenet.org at the moment. I need to wait a little while longer to request an L bot, and 3 other people need to be in the channel. I have got 3 cgi clones in there at the moment, so hopefully they will be sufficient.
If you've never used IRC before, I suggest downloading mIRC (http://www.mirc.com
) and entering by connecting to irc.quakenet.org (which should be on the list) then typing /join #retrogamer. Alternatively, if you can find an open java client (such as http://www.onlinegaminghub.net/cgi-bin/chat/irc.cgi
), you can connect from there.
