Still using IRC?

Recommended Posts

I noticed some of the new emulators have got IRC channels. Any of you guys still on IRC these days? :P

 

FYI: If you don't know what IRC is: it's an ancient chat system. Internet Relay Chat... popularized with the Windows client, mIRC.

Rarely for anything not linux-related, like tech support or quick questions.

I see it as a major security and privacy risk with inappropriate protections in place.

Privacy risk I can understand, considering your IP address is shown unless you got yourself some sort of botnet or proxy. But security risk -- in what way?

I would again if there was a community worth joining, I suppose.

Very rarely. I only ever use it if I need to download something that's only available on IRC.

Almost never...only if I need support for something and it's the only place to find it.

 

I also have not used IM of any kind in at least 5 years now. No more MSN Messenger etc...useless crap. Nothing online needs instant feedback to the point where I need to be on an instant messenger.
