Chat over IRC

Enter chat rooms from anywhere by using this free client software on your device.

Ah, IRC. Internet Relay Chat is a great tool to find information or a good place to get blasted for asking stupid questions with a response of “RTFM.” The great thing about the world of technology is that when you run into a problem, there is very little chance that you are the first one that has ever experienced it. In fact, there is probably a motivated user of the same software you are having a problem with lurking out on IRC that has the answer and is willing to share. Many high-profile techno-geeks hang out on IRC providing newbies with answers to common problems.

Good news! IRC is no longer just for your desktop computer. There are client versions that work on many J2ME phones—including your BlackBerry. There are a few versions to choose from, but the client that seems to be the most stable and has the most features is WLIrc (short for Wireless IRC), and is available for free from http://wirelessirc.sourceforge.net/.
