Thought about it. What would be a good name for the link? IRC is too techie. 'Chat' might work. I've never integrated IRC with a website before—does anybody know of a good IRC applet?

SoSZ Chat or Chat or something yeah. You could probably offer something similar for the sister site simrtk too, even though it gets a healthy dose of traffic already.

I'm only aware of mibbit, webirc and CGI:IRC. The last is icky perl though. I've used a java based one before, I think it was.

If I come up with something cool I could set it up for SimRTK too. I don't have much time right now to research clients, but if someone could share information about a few winners that would be awesome. Otherwise I'll try to get around to it. Life's been very busy lately!

I might be able to chip in, depends on whether I have to get my head around another language. (I gave up PERL)

Yeah, Perl is a pain in the ass. We're probably better off going with a simple Java Applet.

Mibbit has an applet/widget for a website. I'm not sure how that would work, though.

What client are you using?

EDIT: Also, are you sure that you're on the LunarNet server?

Hi folks,

Does this link look like something worth using as a web portal to the SoSZ chat?

Embedded IRC App. Both Mibbit.

I could probably strip out those advertisements... without paying...
