IRC Chat Archives
What is this?
In years past, group IRC discussion with key members of the AmigaOS
development community were common. Sadly, the popularity of IRC has
faded over the years, along with the interaction that was once so common
with the development community. Below are some transcripts captured
during days gone by.
How do I participate?
First you'll need an IRC client. If you're using a next-generation Amiga there are several choices, the
most popular being the venerable AmIRC
or the recently open-sourced Wookiechat.
For Wookiechat, there were released some extra beta versions, which can be found at https://wookiechat.amigaworld.de/beta/. These fix some bugs of the previous stable versions, but they might not work properly on your system. Use it at your own risk.
Once you configure the client with your preferred screen name, you'll
want to find a channel to talk in. We recommend the AmigaWorld IRC
server, specifically the #amigaworld and #amigans channels. You can find
more information at https://www.amigans.net/modules/AMS/article.php?storyid=11
There is also the Amigans channel on Discord, if you prefer using that application. You can join us at https://discord.gg/YQX65yzyeB. The general channel on Discord is also connected with the #amigans channel on IRC, so that you won't miss any discussions.
