I haven't used anything other than bare forums for years. I don't much care for IM either, I had icq, before aol got'em. I've kept my head in silicon sand for too long but now I don't know a thing about IRC or where to start. I did search TS but didn't find a, er, newbie guide.. :rolleyes: Anybody care to tutor me so I can join in that part of TS. Thankz!
