Irc & Waving
"You came and you gave without taking..."
Irc (Internet Relay Chat).. it's where I spend most of my time everyday.. talking to people & collecting wavs. It's also where I met my fiance, Mike! In this section I will tell you how to get there, what you'll need *once* you get there, and how to collect wavs.. along with other misc. info :)
Get The Programs
First, you'll need to download
Mirc & install it. You can either install it to it's default folder, or choose somewhere else. (I have mine on my D drive.)
Next.. get a program to play & grab wavs online. Some people like WavGet while others, like myself, prefer TxPlay. (NOTE: WavGet will NOT work with any Mirc newer than Mirc 5.9!)
Set Up And/Or Basic Usage Help
Ok.. you have Mirc & a wav program.. What now? I spend time in three different places online... One on Dalnet (#IrcWavPlayers), the other two on Undernet (#Wavaddiction & #Caring-Hearts). You can find links to these channels' websites on My Favorite Links page. In the meantime, I'll give you a brief run-down on both places. :)
This channel allows wavs AND Mp3's. You can get detailed setup help for mirc & most wav players here, too. Be sure to ask for the channel rules.
Only wavs are allowed. You can get generalized help with mirc and wavs. The rules are pretty lax regarding wav titles & content.
This is a new channel on Undernet & it isn't a music channel.. but it's a nice place to hang out :)
Me & IRC
Find me & my wavs:
You can usually find me on at least one of those three channels. (I use the name Skittles` of course!) As of today (3/5/02), I have 18,747 wavs!!! Download my list then come find me & start grabbing my wavs. :)
Name That Tune Answers:
Anyone who knows me from IRC knows that I have some Name That Tune play messages. Some people even try to guess the answers to them :) AnYwAy.. I decided to list the answers here!
