iLounge User Group meeting: Author, Chris Breen

We recently received confirmation that Chris Breen, author of “Secrets of the iPod, Fourth Edition” will be attending the first meeting of the iLounge User Meeting to talk about his new book, iPods, minis and answer a few questions from the audience. To be eligible for giveaways during the meeting, please join the free User Group by registering with the forums.

Meeting Date: May 3 at 6pm ET/3pm PT.



The first iLounge User Group meeting will take place using an IRC chat channel. Some of you may be new to IRC chat. Below is a general introduction on how to get started. It may seem a bit daunting using something unfamiliar, but we believe this is a much better solution for moderating a live chat with guests rather than using iChat or AOL AIM. This chat channel can be accessed at anytime using the following guide.

The official IRC chat channel is hosted at:
Channel: #ilounge

IRC Client Software for Windows

The IRC client we recommend is called mIRC written by Kahled Mardam-bey and is one of the most simple to use IRC clients.

IRC Client Software for Mac OS X

An easy to use IRC client software for OS X is Conversation 1.0. The software is designed for new users of IRC and the interface is very user friendly. If you’ve ever used iChat you’ll know what we mean.

Unfortunately for me, I won’t be able to make it to the first like 20 minutes- I get out from school at 3:05 PST.  But hopefully I will be there for the giveaway and everything else!
