Yakkity yakkity yak...on IRC, the conversation never stops.

Since it helps to know that language of the natives, let's get familiar with the terminology first.

IRC is based on a client-server architecture [try saying that when looking deeply into her eyes after a romantic dinner ;-)]

The server: As we've told you before, a server is a system whose purpose is to "serve", or make available, data as and when requested by another system, popularly known as a "client". An IRC server allows IRC clients to connect and communicate with each other via the server, such that a message sent by one client is relayed by the server to all other clients connected to that server.

IRC servers come in all shapes and flavours - the most common one on the UNIX platform is ircII, but you'll find versions for Windows too, if you dare to look!

The client: An IRC client is an application that allows you to communicate with the IRC server and with other clients connected to that server. This is an environment used to communicate, join and leave channels, query other users and perform various other interesting tasks.

There are a variety of IRC clients available - if you're using the Windows platform, the most popular is easily mIRC, a piece of software that brings point-and-click simplicity to the arcane commands of IRC.

Every IRC user is identified by a nickname, abbreviated in IRC lingo as 'nick'. This nick is the name you are known by on IRC, so feel free to be creative!
