#coldfusion (and others) on IRC

October 9, 2005 ·

Just a reminder that there's a set of fairly active (if often off-topic) chat channels established on IRC for ColdFusion developers. The main channel is #coldfusion which has a bunch of irreverent and fun regulars and then there are channels registered for several of the application frameworks: #fusebox, #machii, #modelglue, #tartan. In anticipation of ColdSpring becoming increasingly more popular, I have just created and registered a #coldspring channel. The #coldfusion channel is often all over the shop and sometimes politically incorrect in the extreme but the framework-related channels are generally much quieter and much more on-topic.

    I remember seeing on one of the other blogs (can't remember which) that someone was asking if there was an IRC channel for CF/OSX users - did such a channel ever get set up?

    #cfosx - I just created it and registered the channel!

    I checked these channels out but they do not exist.

    Mauricio, they do exist. A bunch of us are logged into them right now.

    Outside work hours there are often fewer people on IRC and sometimes no one is actually in those channels - the channels, however, continue to exist.

    Is this info still accurate?
    I didn't see a #Coldfusion channel on

    @Phillip, there are currently 24 people in the #coldfusion room on so, yes, it's accurate.

    @phillip, yes its current, what you gotto do is connect to dalnet server, then type /join #coldfusion, otherwise if you do a search it doesnt come up.
