The D chat room on IRC has grown to a fine community recently. Peak  
concurrent users of 30 with an average of 20.

We'd like more D users to stop by! It's channel #D on IRC network  
chat.freenode.net. More information at  
http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?IRC

We also set up channel statistics at

Hope to see you there!

I had a blast last time I was in there... which brings me to my latest cry for help. :( AFAIK, it seems that there's an issue with Gaim trying to co-exist with Gimp or Inkscape due to each using a different version of GTK+ on Windows (GTK+ won't do side-by-side versioning either). Can anyone reccomend a GAIM replacement that'll do chat and IRC? Or to put this in a more on-topic way: what is the offical/reccomended client for D IRC users? ;) - Eric Anderton at yahoo

Trillian does IRC if you really want to do it from an IM client. Firefox also has built-in IRC capability, try irc://irc.freenode.net Personally, I use mIRC as I find it's a bit more flexible. Sean

I'm using Miranda ( http://miranda-im.org/ ) solely because it is open source :)

I would use either mIRC or miranda. I personally use mIRC (its most mature one around)

Just to add one, for all the non windows users. Irssi is the best :-)

Thanks everyone, for all your responses.

Once I'm settled into my 'lab' at home, I'll be downloading a new client.

See you on #d!

And with that growth came some management problems. I used to have the IRC client notify me when someone talked, but it's not pratical anymore, as there's a lot of talk now (also with some occasional offtopics :/ ). I now only watch it now occasionally, or on particular notifications. -- Bruno Medeiros - CS/E student "Certain aspects of D are a pathway to many abilities some consider to be... unnatural."
