By the way, the #tea IRC channel on the Freenode network is doing pretty well. We have 8 people in there, so join us :P

EDIT: Do to Freenode guidelines, we had to move the channel to ##tea, but the good thing is that we actually have control of that channel, unlike the old one :P

Actually the channel is ##tea not #tea. Apparently freenode has restrictions on channel names. I think you have to be a company of some sort to actually have a channel such as #tea so ##tea was created for the tea channel as it goes by freenodes rules a bit better as ##tea is just for tea talk and not for a company's chat channel. :) So don't forget to add the second # when joining the tea channel :)

I wonder how to join with Chatzilla for firefox. Do I have to do something like "/attach irc.freenode.net" or something? I did that and then looked for the ##tea room but it wasn't there. I'm interested in checking this out, but I don't really know how. Any tips?
