To use IRC, you'll need a client. A really good one for folks new to IRC is [https://irccloud.com IRCCloud]. With IRCCloud there is a web interface as well as good Apps for iOS and Android.
 
 
 
One limitation of IRCCloud is that, after a 1-week trial period, the system will disconnect folks every two hours. There are a couple options for this. The easiest one is subscribing to IRC cloud which costs $5/month or $50 a year. Mako or Aaron will foot the bill. The other is to connect through an IRC "bouncer." Talk to Mako about this if you're interested in this approach. He can run one for you.

The light in the lab at UW is funny. We have three fluorescent lights. On flipping the light switch, only two turn on. The third turns on ''eventually''. We are studying this arcane phenomenon over at [[CommunityData:Light events]]
