Sep. 28th, 2008 @ 05:41 pm IRC chat for VP debate
Current Location: Paint-Your-Wagon, AZ
Current Mood: nerdynerdy
Some of you might not know but I hang out a lot on Sff.net

Well they have an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) server and this Thursday I'll be hanging out there to discuss the VP debates, live blogging if you will.

Come join me if you've got some time free

http://irc.sff.net will take you to the webclient if you don't have an IRC client installed.

Some chat help can be found at:

(I can't promise we'll be kind to either candidate, a bonehead comment is a bonehead comment from either party and I'll want to call it. But we will do our best to stay civil to the folks live at the chat.)

ETA: Debate starts at 9PM Eastern (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ and check New York time to your local). I plan on being in the room around 8PM Eastern.

Hmm, it's a while since I've been on chat, and I can't guarantee I'll watch the debate live. But maybe I'll show up.

ABC is showing this, but I'm not sure if it's live. It's at 11 am which is (count on my fingers) 9 pm EST. Is that the right time?

9PM Eastern is the scheduled start time for the debate. (Can't believe I left that off!)

Check out http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ for a chart and compare your time to say New York time (to pick one that's near the top of the list, third column to the right).

It will be cool to catch up with you guys again!
