Wow. All of this from something I tossed up while half-asleep in the morning. >_>

Yes. Come join. Link's in the .sig - and remember, if you're gonna pop onto the IRC channel, until you get your times synced up, you've gotta stay connected and treat it a bit like O-F - you might not get answered for up to 30 minutes - most of us are doing something in another window, and popping over to check on stuff on occasion. Once someone's actually watching, it's like real-time chat, but 'til then... yeah. Don't run away. ^_^
I'm planning on writing a quick FAQ for the web-client page and tossing it at Vash, but until then, remember that IRC moves slowly - until it moves fast! :D

...

And yes, we -do- need orbiter-bash.org - we've had some great stuff on the channel. >_>

We need no orbiter-bash.org.

The moment I came in here and saw the opening post, I thought the same.

And lo, people went to bash.org and saw the conversations, with which they verily brought across to #orbiter

Hey guys! look what I just found

*Flood of bash.org links a plenty flooded into #orbiter, and they were smited.

And another classic quote

[16:32] Nerull: Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

A typical evening in the chat room...

[23:52] * Epsilon is tempted to try a landing now. >_>
[23:52] Gary: landing where?
[23:53] Epsilon: On the sun. <_<
[23:53] Gary: I hope you are going at night
[23:53] Epsilon: When I said a "low solar orbit", I wasn't joking.
[23:53] * Epsilon rofls.

15:47 * Epsilon gets into a low-solar orbit.
15:48 < Epsilon> Orbital speed: 436662m/s
15:48 < Epsilon> <_<
15:49 <@Gary> what vessel?
15:49 < Epsilon> Gary: Just using a random DCIV.
15:50 < Epsilon> Current PeA is 19km, current ApA is 20km. Give or take.
15:50 < Epsilon> :D
15:50 * Epsilon is tempted to try a landing now. >_>
15:50 <@Gary> landing where?
15:50 < Epsilon> On the sun. <_<
15:50 <@Gary> I hope you are going at night

More context than Gary's. ;p
