As mentioned t'other day, I have a web client (so no download needed - works fine from most any browser. It's irc.cgi for those that care). Mail me offlist for details.

Regarding learning, may I point to Garrett's useful intro:

The level of signal/noise is really, really low :-) And I think there's some value to having it unarchived, as you can float ideas (including dumb ones)/rant/lark around without it being part of your permanent record.

Of course, if you're seriously abusive/out of order, you'll get called on it, so there are some standards of behaviour and it's not entirely Liberty Hall.
