Talkin' The Talk
Yakkity yakkity yak...on IRC, the conversation never stops.

Well, unless you're one of the fortunate few, you know that e-mail doesn't always get replied to instantly - as a matter of fact, sometimes you never get a reply [we're happy to tell you that this is one sin we've never been guilty of ;-)]

IRC, on the other hand, allows you to communicate in real-time - that is, type your message in and receive a reply immediately from other users who might be watching their terminals at the same time. And so, it's the perfect medium of communication for parents worrying about their darling daughter studying at the other end of the world, for business conferences between smugglers on two different sides of an international border, and for digital Romeos who can't breathe without their equally nebulous Juliets.

IRC was originally written by Jarkko Oikarinen, and is defined as "a multi-user, multi-channel chatting network, which allows people all over the Internet to talk to one another in real-time." A functional replacement of the old 'talk' protocol, it does everything 'talk' used to do, but better: it allows more than 2 users to talk at once, with access across the aggregate Internet, and a bunch of other useful thingammyjigs.
