16:31 chm joined #pdl
16:33 chm I'm new to this IRC stuff.  Would appreciate any suggestions or links to effective use of this medium?  (Noticed that my discussions seem more chaotic than some of the other conversations on this channel and would like to do better...
17:46 jberger chm: not sure what you mean?
17:47 jberger one thing is that if you prefix the username of the person you are talking to, most IRC clients will highlight that line in the target user's interface
17:47 jberger so that they see it
17:47 jberger also, generally it's polite not to post large codeblocks (one line is probably ok), but rather post links to code-paste sites
17:49 jberger gist.github.com is especially nice because you can update the code or even fork it
17:49 jberger however run4flat likes to use http://scsys.co.uk:8001/pdl because it will automatically post a link in the chat for you on creating
17:50 jberger Bender1, trust chm
17:50 Bender1 OK, jberger
17:50 jberger operators may "moderate" the board
17:51 jberger the bender bots will automatically make user's operators if they are told to (as I have now done for you)
17:51 jberger moderators may set the topic
17:51 jberger its polite not to log the channel unless you mention that in the topic (which we have)
17:51 jberger Bender2, trust chm
17:51 Bender2 jberger, I already trust chm
17:52 jberger the bots are necessary because if all the operators ever all log off, then someone else may "claim" the channel

19:53 chm Gone to sleep for a bit
19:54 chm I made an official account on mibbit.  Not sure how that relates to #pdl or op trust.
19:55 chm I'm not sure what trust chm means if I was "anonymous" login

22:33 chm Well, I'm having no luck registering a nick name for irc
22:34 chm I try the instructions at http://wiki.mibbit.com/index.php/NICK but just get a response: mibbitNickServ: No such nickname online.
22:34 chm Any ideas how to "get official"?
