reading through older blog posts, I saw this article. I didn't know XKCD had a chat channel. I don't use IRC but would like to get in on the fun. could someone help me out?

A simple way could be Mibbit. Go to http://mibbit.com/chat/ and find Foonetic in the dropdown menu. Enter your desired nick and let channel be #xkcd. Voila.

Otherwise, there's a myriad of IRC clients out there.

If you do get an IRC client, you should know that the servers full name is irc.foonetic.net. You do not need to know that if you are using mibbit.

Uhhh.... #xkcd is actually not that good btw. But other xkcders use different channels in foonetic.

xkcd also has an AIM chat room, too. It's much more fun than the IRC chan and we have more of the cool kids. >.>;

How do you get to the AIM chat? I'm having a little bit of trouble finding it.

What did you do? Also, who banned you? Those two things might be helpful.

I should point out that the IRC network and the forums are two totally unique entities. I simply went into #xkcd, copied Alpha's post and that's what one of the op's responded with.

Posted a link to a 3-D rendering of goatse cooked up by some folks I know. (It was totally tasteful and I definitely warned everyone beforehand, man!) I don't recall who banned me.
