I have sources of BitchZX http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitchzx/ IRC client for ZX Spectrum with ConnectOne WiFi module.
I have the same module connected to my QL, easily controlled using AT commands:

WIth this, it is possible to create QL IRC client. Possibly in Basic, I hope.
My intention now (and New Years resolution) was to write a gopher client for QL, but this is paused due to insuficient time and other projects.
If I have more time!

Just a reminder to existing and new users that the online chat is manned most evenings so pop by say hello if you feel like it. Everyone welcome! For an easy way to connect, log in here as normal and click Online Chat which is next to View your posts on the menu at the top of the screen.

Or you can even use a serial console on you QL. Just connect it to a linux box and run a cmdline IRC client and come chat to us.

That would be really cool BTW :-)

Don't forget folks, the chat is currently manned. No excuses! Unless you are down town somewhere being drunk and rowdy, in which case you are excused! :lol:
