Why use the IRSSI client on cs1 you ask? Well because then you don't have to be worried about being connected to IRC at all times. By using the ''screen'' porgram you can create a session in the
backround and lunch IRSSI within that session. This way when you logout of telnet or ssh your session is still active and can be accessed later on. (Advantages: ''' 1.''' People can leave you messages. '''2.''' You can catchup on important things that you may have had otherwise missed that happened on IRC. '''

a ssh or telnet client to connect to cs1 . [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PuTTY PuTTY (Windows)]. If you use linux or any unix based operating system you probably know what to do.#Once you've connected to cs1 launch the ''IRSSI'' application within a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Screen ''screen''] session. You can do this by typing "screen " in the bash prompt. This will launch the ''screen'' application which should start a new bash prompt of its own. Type "irssi" in the new bash prompt in order to launch ''IRSSI'', the irc application. As a side note, if you want to exit a ''screen'' session just type "exit" in the bash prompt to return to the main prompt where you originally launched ''screen'' from.
# In the ''IRSSI'' prompt, type /connect irc.mozilla.org in order to connect to the Mozilla IRC server.
# Once you're connected type in /j #seneca to join the official DPS909 IRC channel.
