New to IRC? Never tried it?

Do you shy away from IRC because it seems daunting, complicated, or completely foreign to you? A pretty large chunk of the Mozilla online community lives and breathes in IRC so I encourage you to come give it a(nother) try. I recently updated https://wiki.mozilla.org/IRC#Getting_Started to help get you started. Hit me up with any questions here or find me as lsblakk in IRC :)

I'll re-visit the instructions soon to write about screen & irssi to keep a perpetual connection going in an attempt to make that option more accessible to folks who might feel it's too technical.

Is there any reason this information is on the internal-only wiki?

Thanks for pointing that out, I had moved everything to the public wiki because there wasn't a reason for having it be internal but pasted the wrong link :)

I think omitting InstantBird as an IRC client is a bad idea ;)

I second BYK's opinion. I'm back using IRC on a daily basis because of Instantbird (which is Gecko-based) IRC integration.
