On Open Source

IRC & Open Source

Where does the open source community live?  There is something called IRC (Internet relay Chat) and here is where open source people communicate with each other.  Today, we learnt to setup IRC and we performed a whole bunch of different operations such as /join (join or create a channel), /me (emotion), /query (private chat), ping and pong (check if someone is online).  More commands are available if you type /command and if you need any help on a specific command simply type /help <command>

Other than command, there are rules that we should follow

  • Rules Number One: Don’t say “hi” when you enter an IRC because it will break the conversation

  • Rules Number Two: If the channel is about cooking, talk about cooking, not fishing 🙂

Gotta watch revolution OS (http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=7707585592627775409&q=open+source) now. 

Talk later.  Bye!
