There's been some indication from various folks that ya'll don't know
IRC as well as you should. :)
So, here's a very brief crash-course in IRC commands and what they do.
I'm pulling this mostly from memory, I'm sure there's some docs on
freenode or elsewhere, and others that are more l33t than me that will
fill in any gaps (AFAIK, most of the other commands deal with channel
* *What it does
/me is hungry
* yourusername is hungry
shows up in the channel
change your username to newnick
set yourself as away (most multi-clients like gaim do this for you)
send a private message to the user named 'somebody'. In Gaim, this
comes up like any other instant message.
start a private chat with a user named 'somebody' most clients will
open a new window for this
get basic info on somebody, also lets you know if they're online
join the #channel chat room
leave the server with a cleaver message
get help (at least on freenode)! if you specify command, it will give
you help on that command. If not, it will list all available commands.
