Adoray has created an IRC (chat) that we have been using for the past week. It is a pretty neat addition to the other options we have been using.

If anyone is interested, Adoray has written a google doc with instructions on how to join. There are usually several of us in the chat (5 at the moment).

Later posts indicate that support of it will be better soon, so consider it in beta (right now I think their is a user cap and I've noticed some browser support issues with Chrome). In a week or so, I think it will have better integration and support.

So apparently my xchat client expired after 30 days... I've looked around for new clients but from the ones I saw every single one was a 30 day trial and had to buy it after that. So... am I missing something or is there a free client somewhere out there?

I got a patch for my xchat to allow me to continue using it - however, gnome and some others have recommended http://www.quassel-irc.org/

i intend to start using that client soon

If you're on Steam tomorrow, I'll chat with you and we'll get you squared away with IRC.

If you're used to XChat, I suggest you give PChat a look. It's based on XChat, and is basically the same thing, but is entirely free.

Pchat is kind of broken, I prefer TRILLIAN or METROIRC

Hey, which is the best option (if there is one) for IRC chatting from an iPhone? I'm on my phone more than my computer so it would be easier for me

What do you guys chat about anyway? Mostly indies/game discussion or other topics? I know a few indie devs through NeoGAF, maybe could get one to chat. Also I recently started a blog (Indie Game Enthusiast) so I'm always looking for cool indies to post about
