Hi all,

Just a reminder that we have an IRC channel to chat on whenever you 
fancy it - it tends to be pretty quiet, but could be livened up somewhat!

It's #hertslug on Freenode - if you have an IRC client, you can connect 
to Freenode (server holmes.freenode.net (mine, in London) or 
irc.eu.freenode.net (round-robin DNS) and /join #hertslug

If your system knows irc:// links, then try:


If you don't have an IRC client installed/configured, or don't want to 
bother setting it up, then the Freenode webchat will do the job:


That will provide a quick & easy way to join in and chat.

Of course, there's plenty of other interesting channels on Freenode for 
various Open-Source related topics.

If you use an IM client like Pidgin which can do IRC, you could 
configure that with an IRC connection, so you'd always be on IRC and 
available to chat when you want to :)

Now, about the site...

Nicolas - can we update the website with the up to date details, and 
that web chat URL?

Also, we were talking about updating the site before, but we never got 
anywhere with it - shall we come up with a plan of what to do (and who 
to do it) and go for it?  Even if we just whacked up a Wordpress install 
with a basic template, that would mean various LUGgers could have 
accounts and be able to create pages, write blog posts etc.
