IRC - which stands for Internet Relay Chat - is now past. Nowadays people almost only talk about ICQ. Some years ago, IRC was a great way to have a conversation with people from all over the world, using the keyboard instead of speaking, besides serving to chat with friends that lived away.

I started IRCing in November 1995, first trying some Brazilian channels, like #brazil or #turma, then on #italy, where I made some friends. The first was Justrite, from South Africa, then Frontier, Taita, Rosebud_ and others. I was often on channels #blaze, #rod and #italy in EFnet, and later on #gillitts in Dalnet.

Nowadays I seldom visit channels, as I am generally on IRC just to chat individually with some friend - although most of them have totally disappeared. Sometimes I go to #f1 in IRCNet.

Follow my steps and get some more info on IRC. Maybe we can meet there! Look for Ade_ or Ade-. You may find a German, a Finnish, a Brit or a Malaysian, but if you are lucky, you will find ME!
