for the most part, joe user doesn't pop in. perhaps that will change some
day, but what do you want the IRC channel to become? as martin pointed
out, we've already got thechat list. no one ever officially sancionted
that channel fwiw. we started using it because it was an easier extension
to group meetings that ICQ was. i'll be the first one to chat away on a
different channel that doesn't have #evolt as its name, and i'm sure
others would too if that would alleviate what we can and cannot say on an
irc channel that only 8 people use regularly. i think thatsa bit out there
though :)

idling :)
