Office Hours - January 2017

#1
I am scheduling some "office hours" this coming weekend: Friday Jan 6th, 08:00 UTC (midnight my time), Saturday Jan 7th, 08:00 UTC (midnight my time) and Saturday Jan 7th, 16:00UTC (8am my time).

During a one-hour timeslot starting at the above times, I will be on the CodeIgniter IRC channel to answer questions you might have. I may be joined by one or more of the other council members. For those of you unable to "attend", the transcript will be posted here.

I don't think I have ever done an IRC chat? How would we join in given that I had to google it to find out what it was? (Please excuse my ignorance if it is something really obvious).

IRC is an old-school text mode chat. The "community" page on our site has a link to a browser IRC client (https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=%...&uio=d4%22), and a link to an intro to IRC (https://workaround.org/getting-help-on-irc).

I use CentOS, which comes with the Pidgin IRC client built-in.

Ah, found it. It seems to work really well. Look forward to the next office hours and will try to join in if I can.

Thank you,

Paul.

Edit: Just spent an hour chatting on some of the weird channels on freenode. IRC is really good, thank you for introducing it to me. I am sure I will be wasting many hours on it in the future. Not sure if that is a good thing or not. ChatZilla is quite good but am going to try a few others like HexChat. There are so many channels....

PaulD,

haha...  just be careful what channels you wander into...  some are... interesting.

Sorry for the OT.

For some reason I thought the office hours were on the 20th...  *hangs head in shame*

You can always ask questions on the forum ... the "office hours" are either (a) an opportunity to put me on the spot (publically) or (b) a carry-over from my academic background, or © both!

I shoot for doing this every 3-6 months. It all depends how busy we are & how much is happening Undecided
There isn't a schedule that we stick to.
