Internet Relay Chat is an interactive way to communicate with people 
over the Internet in real time.  By connecting an IRC client program to 
one of several IRC networks, you can join one or more "channels" and 
exchange text messages with people all over the world.  Popular IRC 
client programs include mIRC and XChat.  For a full introduction to IRC, 
see <http://www.irchelp.org/>.

netgoth.org.uk has an Internet Relay Chat section 
<http://www.netgoth.org.uk/chat/>, better known through the name of its 
main channel, #uk_goffs.  It can be reached either through its own web 
browser interface, or through IRC client software.  A chaotic and often 
downright strange environment, #uk_goffs can require thick skin.  It 
also sometimes takes time for the regulars to accept newcomers.

You can connect up with IRC client software by joining channel #uk_goffs 
on the host irc.netgoth.org.uk, with a port number between 6665-7001 
<irc://irc.netgoth.org.uk/uk_goffs>.  There is also channel #quiet 
<irc://irc.netgoth.org.uk/quiet> for when things just get too noisy.  In 
the event that the main server is down, try #uk_goffs on 
irc2.netgoth.org.uk <irc://irc2.netgoth.org.uk/uk_goffs> instead.  If 
that too doesn't work, try ports 6660-6669 on irc.darker.net 
<irc://irc.darker.net/uk_goffs>.

Please read the net.goth chat rules and tips before getting stuck in.
