...without my IRC. I've tried to find a way to chat on #aftery2k with you all, but I can only get to certain channels on Slashnet. None of them being #AY2K. If any of you know of a way I can chat short of dling something onto my dad's computer (BIG no-no), then I'll be in as quick as I can. And yes, I tried the /join command. It's not working.

I tried the /join command on the main window... worked for me. If not, I suppose I could set up a shell account somewhere if you have a good secure shell (ssh) or telnet client on that computer.

A laptop would be nice, but I don't have enough money for it. Slashnet has a java client that I've tried, but when I type on the /join command, it doesn't recognise it... it did the first time I did it, but it hasn't since the first time. I think I might have done something illegal, but I don't know what.

[edit: It says "***command not available"]

I've been given a shell account before, and I don't think there were any problems with that...

If the client computer is a Windows PC, I highly recommend that you install PuTTY, a small but excellent terminal emulator + telnet/ssh client for Windows.

MS-Telnet is so bad that you shouldn't even consider running it.
