I downloaded the latest available Trillian... Its [Trillian.74] The FREE one!!! Yippee!!!<br><br><br><br>
Whats up is I still have the problem with knowing what next, like getting hold of a CHATserver address etc, and other info I might need after choosing a chat client and I don't know which to use....(not that I suppose it matters which I connect to) BUT on my Trillian "connection manager" screen there are numerous IRCs and other such chatclients to choose from, most of which I am unfamiliar with (and are total unknowns to me)....<br><br><br><br>
Anyhoo, my task (I think?) is choosing WHICH one of the chat-servers I go thru to connect my Trillian IRC (or any IRC I guess??)<br><br>
...........so, as said above I think I understand to get hold of what I need I will likely need to go to one of the chatclient homepages<br><br>
I suppose for their server infos/addresses, for my IRC to work;;; presuming this provides a way for what I need for VB chat, then<br><br>
I can proceed I suspect so that I can know my IRC connection details to be able to chat on VB I guess. Not entirely sure tho.<br><br><br><br>
Can anyone assist, whom uses Trillian please?...That would be ideal.<br><br><br><br>
I've not even used any chatROOM using IRC [or ICQ?] or any such thing before....so I'm stuck & I suck unless someone can help. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
I went here... at someones suggestion...<br><br>

<<<- Here I find something European that I suppose might do it...<br><br>
(assuming the closer the "CHATserver" to home,<br><br>
the better it will work I guess)....as follows...<br><br>
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^<br><br>
Europe (EU.WorldIRC.Org)<br><br>
Amsterdam.NL.EU.WorldIRC.Org<br><br>
Bliesen.DE.EU.WorldIRC.Org<br><br>
Klagenfurt.AT.EU.WorldIRC.Org<br><br>
Leuven.BE.EU.WorldIRC.Org<br><br>
London.UK.EU.WorldIRC.Org<br><br><br><br>
I am thinking the London one might work BEST?.. coz its a UK server... <I dunno> ...<br><br>
Maybe I could do better using a random one and hoping for<br><br>
the best... I have no idea since I have not before tried any.<br><br>

Any server is good, because they are interconnected forming one network. So yes, try the UK one. Most people seem to connect to Klagenfurt.<br><br><br><br>
You can also just use irc.worldirc.org, which connects you to a random server.<br><br><br><br>
The chatroom is called #veggieboards.<br><br><br><br>
After connection, you can join by typing<br><br><br><br>
/join #veggieboards<br><br><br><br>
where you normally type your messages. all IRC commands begin with a slash (/)<br><br><br><br>
See you there! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

In the Connection Manager for IRC, Click on the ADD button on the lower left portion of the screen. IT will be in the Internet Relay Chat section.<br><br><br><br>
Fill it(the screen that pops up) out like in the pic i attached.<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/d/dd/ddf4a8e0_vbattach485.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/d/dd/525x525px-LL-ddf4a8e0_vbattach485.jpeg" style="width:340px;height:269px;"></a>
