IRC. Back to IRC. A Guide to entity JPX
After some four years of practically no IRC, I have come back. In theory, this is thanks to the people at Alterego reneissance dance group, who talked me to hanging in the #alterego channel, and now I find myself hanging on some other channels as well. Here are some places where I can be found:
#alteregoI also managed to add myself the Finnish IRC Gallery
Online habits: These days my ircing is more idle hanging than active participation, mostly due to other things to do. And I don't plan to get overly addicted either. I usually stay logged on from both home and work and you should by default expect the IRC window to be buried under other things unless you see me active.
Background: I often use my initials, jph, for many things, however, during the earlier ircing era, 95-98 or so, that was often reserved and I disliked the idea of using special characters as part of my nick, so I changed the H into an X. Partly this was also due to the fact that I never had a "weird, cool, yet nifty" nick that I would have liked. Maybe someone would come up with one...
Variants: Plain jpx, jpx_ or jpx- should denote that I'm close to the computer. Unless stated otherwise jpx is home, jpx_ is work and jpx- is some third computer (like my laptop or a friends computer etc.) At times I use extra variants to describe my status, but often I's too lazy to use them or forgot them on, or something. Anyway, including but not limited:
Other: I have also collected some abbreviations commonly used in net talk, that may be helpful, if you're new to them.
