MaxMSP Internet Relay Chat Room

Scott Weiser writes:

In addition to the Max mailing list, there is now a full-fledged Max chat room on IRC. If you haven’t checked it out yet, come on by. I can’t guarantee that there will be someone to talk to 24 hours a day, but we have some regulars now and also some people that pop in from time to time.

While the mailing list has its advantages in being a good place to solve problems and keep a record of the solution in the archive, the IRC channel operates on a much more personal level, and you can finally get to know the geeks who have helped you out in the past (or the other way around).

Once again, the original thread that started this is here: The #maxmsp channel is on the UnderNet network, which is a large, worldwide network of IRC servers. Connecting to any UnderNet server will connect you to the whole network. The most popular UnderNet servers are: – will redirect you to a random undernet server worldwide – will redirect you to a random undernet server in the US – will redirect you to a random undernet server in Europe If one doesn’t work, try a different one. Once you’ve successfully connected, just type: /join #maxmsp and you’re in! Here are some webpages to get you started: – a good site for people who have never heard of IRC – a very lengthy FAQ that probably has the answer to just about any question you would have about IRC.

Good luck, and see you there!

I’ve just found this…does anyone use it?

sometimes i go on irc server – another one though : #maxmsp on rather than ; on which there doesn’t seem to be any #maxmsp channel. But there is consistently not a lot of people, and it’s not a very active channel.

should we revive it? Do we have critical mass to have something consistently chatty going on? :)

well i don’t know about the critical mass but i’ll be on here whenever i open my irc client :) there are 3 silent people atm. I think it’s consistently not chatty.

Would be cool just to have a stream of people chatting about what they are working on. Also to discuss random things that might not be forum post worthy.

Ideally it would be sick to have a live chat on the cycling "74 site!

I camped out for a bit on it but no one came by. The #muffwiggler channel on is fairly active and about four of us are max users.

One of us should get some help from freenode in order to be able to change the topic.
