Perfect! Is there a wiki plugin for phpBB or do you have to set up your own?

There isn't one for PHP-Nuke that is out now. However several of us have been playing with some wiki software, and I think I'll install it separately on a sub-domain, like maybe wiki.surfguitar101.com or something.

Cool. I've used TWiki before. Its Perl based and a bitch to set up correctly. Its got a lot of features though.

...and if you want something perl-based that's simple, ol' UseMod or its derivatives are quick and easy to set-up.

I've been a user (not an admin) of a few Wikka Wakka wikis (PHP and MySQL based) and they seem to work pretty well...

http://wikkawiki.org/

I think I'll probably go with PMWiki. It's simple and configurable.

On the user side, I have used numerous Mac oriented chat clients. Ircle was super simple and cheap and I used that for years. Now that iChat is built into the OS I mostly just use that. Back when I was also using Windows I liked Trillion but have no idea if its still around. An added plus about iChat is how easy it is to video and/or voice conference now.

Wow, the irc server is running. I'll make a more formal announcement as soon as I figure out what the hell I am doing!!! OMG

irc.surfguitar101.com
port is 6667
server password is morereverb

I don't know what client to use, so I randomly picked ChatZilla. It is an addon for Firefox, so it was a quick and painless install. I managed to connect to the server with this command:

/server irc.surfguitar101.com 6667 morereverb

I then joined the ShallowEnd channel using the IRC/Join Channel menu item. You can change your nickname easily too by clicking the button next to where you type. That's about all I know for now.

I'll be in here for a while tonight. Smile Smile Smile

Awesome Brian! Thanks!!
I just tried to connect from work, but my work blocks irc traffic (port 6667) so I need to test when I get home tonight, which I definitely will. Probably not until around 8:00 pst.

I have important business at 8:00 pm CST (cough, cough), but I'll be popping in and out.

What ports aren't blocked? I could change it...snicker...snicker...

That's a good question. I'm not sure the exact port ranges. All I know is that I've never been able to connect to any irc channels from my work. If we get this up and running, I'm definitely going to spend some time and "bypass" this little hinderance Twisted Evil

Brian, I had no problem getting into the #ShallowEnd channel from home...
So, everything looks good. Hopefully we can get some people to join. I've set up an ssh account with silenceisdefeat.org so I can use ssh tunneling to try and get online at work.

I must be a lamer because I cant figure it out

Help me out- I downloaded Chatzilla and am running the current version of firefox.
Did a restart, and put irc.surfguitar101.com as the URL but that didn't take me anywhere.
So what do i do next?

Ferenc,
After you restart Firefox, go to Tools -> ChatZilla.
That will load a separate ChatZilla window. Now you can enter in Brian's commands (exactly as he noted) as posted earlier into the text area. Let me know if you still have problems.

Tim,
Did you successfully install the ChatZilla plugin to Firefox? If so, are you able to launch it? If so, then it must be a problem with the commands you are typing in. Let me know and I can help you out.
