Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of realtime Internet chat. It is mainly designed for group (many-to-many) communication in discussion forums called channels, but also allows one-to-one communication via private message. Xenophase features a few IRC channels for our various services, you can access IRC either via our web client or a standard IRC client such as Bersirc, available for free; a guide for using Bersirc is available.
