A Chat For Old Times’ Sake

April 20th, 2009 | Category: Farscape,Farscape Fan Stuff

Chat for folks from the former Sci Fi FARSCAPE chat

(and other interested parties)

  • irc.sorcery.net as server, use 7000 as port
  • #farscape as the “room” (or channel)
  • Monday, May 4, through Friday, May 8

Those of us who were fans from the early days of Farscape remember irc.scifi.com #Farscape, the chat room that SciFi used to have on their website.¬† I spent many hours hanging around in there chatting with fellow ‘Scapers from around the world.¬† (Yes, really.¬† Around the world.¬† The room always had people in it, no matter what hour.) My very first Farscape friends were made in that chatroom, nearly eight years ago.

SciFi has gotten rid of their chat server (irc is so 90′s), slicked up its website and forums, and introduced flashy videos to their website, but none of that builds as much community between fans as their old chat rooms did.

As an exercise in nostalgia and the old “where are they now” spirit, a one week only chat even will be set up.

I will be traveling that week on business, but I’ll be checking in during the evenings under my “nom de irc” of grapeshot.¬† See you all there!
