Be aware however, from my experience, IRC should be a last resort for
getting help.  If you want to hang out and learn some cool stuff,
that's encouraged.  But if you begin asking questions that are covered
in the handbook and easily found from google you're liable to get  a
negative response.  It's best to lurk a while since you're new to irc
to get the feel of things.  And trust me, you will learn alot just
listening in.

Just my $.02, your mileage may vary,  batteries not included, etc....
