What is #jj2?
#jj2 is a so-called IRC
is a chat system that works with “channels”. Each channel resembles a chat room, but you need an IRC
client(a special program) to go there. When you start IRC
, it asks you for a server to connect to. Each server has an unique set of channels, which are created by whoever wants to create one. Each channel starts with a #(#jj2 for example), and there can be only one channel for each name on a server. (There can’t be two #jj2 channels on one server, but you can create one on another server for example)
The “official” #jj2 channel is located at the quakenet server, which can be reached by entering irc.quakenet.org or another official quakenet mirror in the server box of your favorite client.
So how do i get there?
1. Get your irc client at www.xircon.com
if you use windows, or at http://www.xchat.org
if you use linux. (Note: you can also use Trillian
, which is an ICQ
, Yahoo and IRC
client in one. ;-))
2. In the select/enter server window from whatever irc client you are using, enter irc.quakenet.org as the server. Enter your nickname, E-Mail and whatever other stuff there is to add, and click connect, ok, or whatever else they call that button in your irq client., :)
3a. When the text/console window says it is connected, go to your clien’s menu, click join channel and enter #jj2 in the window that pops up.(or enter /join #jj2 at the text/console window) There. You are in, have fun, :)
