Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In existence since 1988, Internet relay chat (IRC) is the wild west of Internet communications because it allows anyone, from anywhere, to talk about anything. While widely used, it is also very user-unfriendly so Charalabidis's guide is almost indispensable. He presents all the basics: clients, servers, channels, finding people and information, setting up servers, managing security, and dealing with bots. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
