Come hangout and idle with us! UnLab Chat Realm:
Web Chat Client
unLab Chat <- Click to start!
If you don't have an IRC Client installed, Note: I would personally install a chat client as this would allow you to idle in the chat room in case nobody is around at that time to respond, but will see your message at a later time and attempt to respond to you.
Nickname: Channels: #unlab Auth to services: doesn't matter unless you don't want people using your nickname which you would have to setup first by login on without this check and running the /help register command. reCAPTCHA: Audio captcha:
Note: The java client will drops its connection if your device goes to sleep/screensaver mode etc.

We have multiple tech savvy ways setup to connect via BNC or SSH/Screen/IRSSI
BNC (short for bouncer) is a piece of software that is used to relay traffic and connections in computer networks"
Basically it will keep a persistence connection for you in the chat channel and relay the prior chat to catch up on what you missed while not logged in.
Refer to: ZNC
SSH/Screen/IRSSI you can SSH into a server connect to a Screen session and log on with IRSSI a terminal IRC Client.
Refer to: Screen
Note: There is a script running on UnLabBot that pulls unLondon/unLab content into the channel from Twitter.
Refer to: unBotIRC
Note: There is a script running that converts the Text To Speech from the chat and can be heard in the server room if you are @ the unLab.
