I'm hopping in chat and will be relatively near the laptop for likely all day, as I don't hold out a lot of hope that my computer will be delivered. It's 10:00AM already and it's not even on the truck. But, I don't want to miss it, so here I am, playing games, doing editing, and yelling at Purolator via their customer contact and social media. I'll likely be near the laptop and on the chat the whole day until dinner, so even if I don't respond right away, I'm often going to be nearby and will get there eventually. I'll edit this blog if that changes.
Go here: http://webchat.irchighway.net/?channels=fimfiction-rites All you need to do is enter a nickname and hit "connect". That's it! Super-simple!! No intimidating port numbers or anything.
Or, the old way: Hit the "Chat" button on your Dashboard, then hit "Connect", then type in "/join #fimfiction-rites".
Huzzah! It came! I had to yell at their twitter account to get it on a damn truck, but it came!
