AnotherNet provides services not normally found on IRC networks.  It will
provide the user with; a NickServ to reserve an IRC nickname; a MemoServ
to send notes to registered AnotherNet users; ChanServ for registering
and managing your own channels; and an enhanced IRC server program for
effective network management, Hacker.

AnotherNet is accessed the way other IRC networks are.  That is, using
your client software, simply enter the server name and port number,
connect, and you are on AnotherNet IRC

For more detailed information as to how an IRC network operates, and the
commands used while logged into irc, see the undernet faq, posted weekly
to the newsgroup *news.answers* on usenet.  See also the IRC primer

To register a channel, you should type /msg chanserv help to receive
the command list for the registration function.  For help
on each topic, type in /msg chanserv help <topic>.
