 IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat. It's a pretty primitive chat program (([[https://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=O2rGTXHvPCQ]])). Essentially,​ an IRC network hosts text-based chat rooms where people can hang out and joke around. The CS Department hosts an IRC server at ''​irc.cs.nmt.edu:​6697'',​ and it's open for anyone to connect to. ''#​cramer''​ is a channel, and a lot of CS majors/​alumni like to chat in the channel ''#​ktek''​ (NSFW). IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat.

 To connect to the IRC, you'll need to install an IRC client. A good client is [[https://​hexchat.github.io/​|Hexchat]],​ which has a nice graphical user interface, and is generally easy to use. You can add our network to the network list as ''​irc.cs.nmt.edu/​6697'',​ select "Use SSL" and "​Accept invalid SSL certificate"​. To connect to the IRC, you'll need to install an IRC client.

 You'll also need to set your Real name and your Nick name. Your "​Real"​ name (or User name) will only be displayed when someone inspects you with the ''/​whois''​ command, and doesn'​t actually need to be your name. Your Nick is your handle. You need a handle, man. You don't have an identity until you have a handle(([[http://​www.imdb.com/​title/​tt0113243/?​ref_=ttqt_qt_tt]]))! So try to come up with a nick that shows off what kind of 1337 h4ck3r((https://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=oJagxe-Gvpw)) you are! You'll also need to set your Real name and your Nick name.
