    IRC stands for "Internet Relay Chat". It was originally written by Jarkko Oikarinen in 1988. Since starting in Finland, it has been used in over 60 countries around the world. IRC is a multi-user chat system, where people meet on "channels" (rooms, virtual places, usually with a certain topic of conversation) to talk in groups, or privately. There is no restriction to the number of people that can participate in a given discussion, or the number of channels that can be formed on IRC.

    4. /away [message]

    Leaves a message indicating that you are currently not paying attention to IRC. When someone sends you a message, they will automatically see your away message. example: /away Off to get something to eat, back in a moment.

    5. /quit [message]

    Leaves a message when you disconnect from IRC other people on the IRC channel you were on sees this message. Example: /quit bye everyone! peace!

    6. What language should I speak?

    The most widely understood and spoken language on IRC is English. However, as IRC is used in many different countries, English is by no means the only language. If you want to speak some language other than English, (for example with your friends), Talk through Private Messaging.
