Storm2k Chatroom - come on in & chat with other s2k'ers!

#1 Postby southerngale » Mon Aug 29, 2011 10:57 am

If you haven't checked out the Storm2k chatroom, now is the time. If you haven't been in there in a while, you might be surprised by all of the new faces and how active it usually is. Come back and visit! Get to know your fellow s2k'ers a little better in a chatroom setting. We have the main room where the topic is generally weather (#storm2k) and an off topic room where we talk about whatever people feel like talking about (#storm2k_ot). Please join both rooms. This is much easier with an IRC client (mIRC, Pirch, etc.)

Many great and lasting friendships have been formed in the chatroom. Stop by and visit! It's open 24 hours/day. If nobody is talking when you enter, sit tight. Many people stay in there and do other things as well, so they could be away from their computers or doing something else online. Usually, the room is quite busy and other times it's kinda slow. Hang around if it's slow and it will pick up shortly.

Hope to see you there!


edit by tolakram with updated instructions ...

There are now 2 web based clients available to use. The easiest, in my opinion, is the client provided by our chatroom provider. Click on the link below, enter a unique user name, and press connect. EASY. :)

http://webchat.esper.net/?channels=storm2k


Mibbit is another good client but may require a modern browser. Click on the following link, enter a unique nickname and press go.

http://mibbit.com/?channel=%23Storm2k&server=irc.esper.net

If you have your own IRC based chat client you'll need to select the EsperNet server (irc.esper.net) and to join the channel (room):

Type:
/join #Storm2k for the main weather chat
/join #Storm2k_ot for the off topic room.

You can set it up to automatically enter the Storm2k channels, then you're just one click away from entering the chatrooms. You can also register your nickname if you'd like, but it's not necessary.

After you enter the room you will get an automatic nickname. Please change your nick to your Storm2k username. To change it, use this format: /nick your name when you enter the room.
For example: /nick southerngale

Updated mobile options - Tolakram

If you stayed home tonight or if you're out and about, when you get home, come chat about Lee and Kalia and the rest of the tropics in the chatroom. There are always people in there... check it out! We have an off topic room where you can talk about whatever else as well.

I'm currently headed out for a little while, but the chatroom is packed right now. Hope to see you there later!

I need more details. Are you trying to enter with the Java link at the top of the forum, with mibbit, an IRC program or mobile?

And what exactly is the error message?

I just tested it and it's not working for me, either. We'll look into it. In the meantime, try downloading mIRC (recommended) http://www.mirc.com/

Or use this link:

http://cbe001.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23Storm2k&server=irc.esper.net

Just enter your nickname and join.

Stop by the Storm2k chatroom to talk about Hurricane Rina and to get to know your fellow Storm2k'ers better. There's almost always people talking in there.

If you haven't visited the chatroom lately, now is the time. There is almost always people in there, talking weather. It's a great place to share information quickly and a great way to get to know other weather enthusiasts.

Stop by today and discuss the tropics with fellow Storm2k'ers!

I assume that a chat party to ring the 2013 season will go on right?

mIRC is working fine. The issue appears to be with webchat, the Java chat. I don't usually go in there with webchat, but just tried and the link wouldn't open. I'll try to find out what the problem is.

I contacted EsperNet help and this was their response:
Webchat is currently experiencing an outage. In the mean time, you should be able to use a desktop client, KiwiIRC, or Mibbit.

The Mibbit link is in the first post of this thread.

To enter through mibbit, click on this link:
http://mibbit.com/?channel=%23Storm2k&s ... .esper.net

However, webchat should be back relatively soon.
