(Alternatively, if that server does not work, you can try '/server irc.prison.net' or '/server irc.qeast.net' to get onto the YorkieTalk chat network).
Voila, you are now in Chat! And you can still browse YorkieTalk at the same time! When you see a Web link posted in chat, just double-click the link, and it will open in your Internet browser. Enjoy!
Remember that there are times in YorkieTalk chat where no one may be talking. Please wait a few minutes, or come back at another time when there may be some people actively chatting.
Please let us know if you have any questions or where anything doesn't make sense. Enjoy the chat!
