UPDATED: iLounge Launches IRC Chat Channel

Thanks to some enterprising readers, iLounge has sanctioned an IRC chat channel for iPod enthusiasts who would like to get together in realtime to talk about all things iPod. The following is a basic how-to (click ‘Read more’) on IRC chat and methods. If you’re an experienced IRC chatter here is the server and channel info;

server: irc.hashmark.net
channel: #ilounge

IRC Client Software for Windows

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

a) Please click HERE to download the latest version of mIRC

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.

Worth mentioning, on Apple Mac keyboards. there is no visible # symbol. To get it, the command it ALT + 3.

For X-Chat Aqua:  After the .dmg is mounted make SURE that you drag the folder to the apps dir.  If you do not do this you may get an ‘unexpected quit’ error.

mrfsrf, I agree, Why are we not aloud to chat about hacks…Anybody know where we can chat about hacks, specially EU Volume hack!

You cant talk about hacks, including the volume one, because any workaround involves violating apples rules about firmware… which is illegal.

I was wondering if someone with some experience in using the iPods on Windows could list some of the “known” bugs plz??

I have thought about buying a 30 gb iPod and i was wondering if there’s more//less buggs compared to 15 gb version or no difference?

And how well does the Ipod work with Usb contacts, does it only work with 2.0 or does it work with normal usb aswell?
Is there any major difficulties making the iPod work at at Pc? Becaue im not that good with computers I really need to know?? :)

You cant talk about hardware hacks because we live in the US where free speech is an illusion that the goverment pulls over your eyes while they are in bed with corparations.

Get use to it. It starts small like this.

Someone please answer this question for me

Can you take a new 30gb ipod, hook it to a mac and download music and then use the same ipod on a windows computer.

Posted by chris in Irvine, CA on October 19, 2003 at 5:22 PM (CDT)


Chris: Yup!  Ofcourse if say you own an XP box and a Mac, you can copying your music to the iPod (not stored via iTunes) and then move them to the XP machine..nothing stopping you.  You may need some software to get XP to recognize your Mac iPod, that’s it…
