Nothing formal, nothing too untoward, a little chit-chat, no Facebook, and perhaps the odd discussion about PHP.
The reason we believe you'll want to come along and talk is that TalkPHP IRC loves you. It loves everybody. It's not particular. Everybody needs a hug from time-to-time, and TalkPHP IRC is only too happy to accommodate.
(TalkPHP IRC loves being venerated, deified, idolised and lionised. Nothing is for free in this world, sunshine!)
I don't like mIRC so I looked for an alternative, and found ChatZilla. I use Mozilla anyways, and this just integrates nicely. Now I have a bookmark for TalkPHP IRC and whenever it's clicked I get all you guys from ff.
If you're not using Opera why not!? It's the best browser on earth!!! :p
I don't mean to start a browser war, but I found Opera was no better than Firefox, especially no quicker. The only useful feature that I found on Opera is it can download torrents, which I don't use anyway so that's not even a bonus.
At least with FF I can install the add-ons I want, and leave the one's I don't want alone.
