Please if you have an IRC program like [URL=http://www.mirc.com]mIRC[/URL], please go to:

irc.quakenet.org
#efmods

As I'm trying to set up a permanent IRC Channel for an occassional chat and live update on the MODs progress. You'll have to stay there for around 2 hours, I need to have at least 3 other people in there besides myself for 2 hours before it can happen. Thanks for your help.

Um..... saying that you will be there at 9pm from Ireland doesn't tell us very much. you of all people should understand the difficulty of establishing time periods. give time to us in GMT, please. are you at +6 hrs GMT? BTW, does our connection HAVE to be quakenet? all my other channels are on newnet. Thanx for the info, though. I've been trying to get on this irc for a month!

In Dublin, it is GMT+1 right now because of daylight savings. Normally it is GMT. I would guess that all of Ireland is in the same time zone, but I don't know that for a fact. With daylight savings, Ontario is now GMT-4 (normally GMT-5), so 9pm in Ireland would be 4pm in Ontario, and 1pm where I am (GMT-7 with daylight savings, normally GMT-Cool!. Those of you in Florida are in the same time zone as Ontario.

Well, all of Ireland is GMT. Seeing how England is in daylight savings time aswell, GMT is GMT+1. I'm in the channel now.

I once had a problem with irc.enterthegame.com

but the problem was it kept choosing a random server so I deleted the link to the random server and it worked

on irc.enterthegame.com, there is a channel called #ritual
for people who registered at
http://www.ritualistic.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=forum&f=11
1st of all, register at their website if you are not already
2nd, join the channel
3rd, if you registered at the site say to the people in #ritual on irc.enterthegame.com
say to them
"Hi, I am <insert username>, I am registered at the ritualistic boards"
and they will op you
where <insert username> = your username

this channel and the forum are run by one of the developers of EF2
his username is Badman

Hey Dobber, I got my bot working now. I'm working on rewriting the trivia game right now to see how well people remember TNG episodes. Right now it only has first season episodes, but I'm going to expand it to include all seven seasons.

BTW: You left #efmods +m and since you and Vanhal had gone to bed nobody could speak except those two people that were lurking.

More updates. Muhahaha!

To confuse Carlos even more, I've added an Interactive mode to my Bot. Muhahaha! That means ScooterBot acts more like a real person. You can talk to it, and it will talk back!

Oh, yeah, season 4 is almost done. Can't forget that.

oh, and Vanhal, could you remove the Invite Only from the #efmods channel on irc.quakenet.org

also, I think this topic should be a sticky, an anouncement or a global announcement

Unfortunately real life got in the way, so my bot's trivia game is only finished up to the end of season 5. I had hoped to get finished to season 7, but I've been busy this past week with other things. I want to see a good turn out this week on the IRC channel!
