An unofficial IRC channel has been started for HFS users on the Undernet network. The channel name is #HFS ...Topic is 'HFS fileserver... Meet other HFS users and share tips, tricks, and ips ;-)' . If you have a cool server why not join and show others how it's done.

Why not get a life?

Just kidding, i'm doubtful anyone will use this though, there is so much support on the forums but i suppose if you could get people to use it, then it would be a better support system then the forums maybe

Has anyone joined btw?
Just curious, why undernet? why not something that specializes in oss

Its a good idea to help out the community and I may join and have a look from time to time, but unless it really takes off I wont really use it.

I wasn't thinking about technical support when I made the post, so much as setting up a place where people can set up webrings of HFS users who want to share their files, after all the forum gives the best technical support anyone could want. (thanks for all your help in the past everyone BTW). The reason for the Undernet network is simply that I already live on there 24/7 in several channels and if I should need help from others to maintain the HFS channel it would be no big deal. Oh and BTW so far the channel has 1 user and a bot lol. It will cost me nothing in resources to keep it open for a few months to see what happens. It could be useful for anyone who wants to meet other users in real time and have private chats ?

I don't think there is enough cause for us to open an IRC channel here. If we had one I would sit on it, I use Chatzilla.

I prefer the forum system though cause all messages can be viewed and are logged away for later, so people can search for the answer to their questions. We have a shoutbox now if anyone has noticed it, It is in the main software board but most chatter in there is about HFS.

In reply to Moon dogg I think undernet is the ideal network for people who don't have experience with IRC. After all with the Chatzilla plugin loaded into the firefox browser Undernet is just one mouse click away ... followed by typing /join #hfs. I dosn't get much easier than that. For people to configure Chatzilla to connect to a more obscure network would require much more effort.

#HFS channel now has links to the latest posts in the HFS forum ... If there is enough support the channel will be registered with cservice @ undernet

channel #HFS on undernet has received sufficient support to be registered with cservice.

well the 6 months is up ... channel will be closed after this weekend. You were right - more chit chat than help with HFS. However I enjoyed the experience and as I said before it cost me nothing to host the channel and give it stability. Best wishes with the continued evolution of the software, I will look on with interest. I believe the potential is awesome :-)
