Install and connect irc to join #snarkcafe

Ok this is just a quick how-to for people that have never heard of irc or have but are not sure how to get it setup and connected so they can chat with us over on #snarkcafe.

There are alot of irc clients out there for windows, but for this how-to we are going to use Mirc as this is what I use and I know alot of people that also use it and it performs very well. If you use Linux then I'm sure you'll already know your way around irc or you'll get the idea pretty quick.

First head on over to and click the download page link on the left hand side, then choose a location close to you to get the software, once you've downloaded it (it wont take long it's very small in size) install it just like you would any other windows app, when prompted select full as the type of install and continue to install.
Ok now we are going to go over to and create an account with them, I'm sure most of you are familiar with the concept of registering an account so I'll leave that with you =P .
Once gamesurge send you the confirmation email you will see it has your account name and a password they have generated for you, under that there is a command for you to give this info to authserv, you can type this manually but why when you can get mirc to do it for you.
Right lets start mirc up, in the box that pops up after you've clicked continue on the author box, put in a name and email address it's up to you if these are real or not, then put your nickname that you would like to go by while your on irc then a variation of it below maybe with the same but with a _ at the end and make sure you tick the invisible box.

Next click on the servers tab under category and scroll down to gamesurge, double click on the folder and select one of the options depending on where in the world you are by double clicking it, now click on options under category then on perform on the page and a box will pop up, tick "Enable perform on connect" at the top of the box then click add next to the network box and select gamesurge from there, in the "Perform commands" box below put the command that was in your email like "/authserv auth Warnink ngjn45g" but without the " then under that line put "//mode $me +x" again without the ", this will log you on to the network then hide your ip to make things a little more secure =) .

Image

Now click ok then ok again, you should now be looking at your main mirc window, just click connect in the top left corner and we will connect to gamesurge and log in automatically, close the mirc favorites box that pops up then select the status window, at the bottom of it your cursor will flash, now type "/join #snarkcafe" again without the ", and if you've followed me ok you will be in the snarkcafe irc channel =D , say hello and chat away.

Sorry if this all seems a bit long winded, but you can just connect without making an account with gamesurge but this way is more secure as you hide your ip from public.

Below is a link to a page with some of the basic commands for irc to get you started.
