T2. What is the #Mariah_Carey chat channel all about?

I like to imagine the channel as a warm cosy little room in which Mariah
fan's gather together and discuss 'stuff'. Of course, we often talk about
Mariah stuff, but it's hardly a rule. It is not a channel to chat with Mariah
herself, however, and you should be aware that many people impersonate her,
mainly in good fun.

If you have a chat client program for IRC, you will need to point it to a
server computer on a chat network called Undernet. The channel called
#Mariah_Carey is on this network, and can be reached from many servers,
including:

[America and Australia]
ann-arbor.mi.us.undernet.org (Michigan)
davis.ca.us.undernet.org (California)
lowell.ma.us.undernet.org (Massachusetts)
vancouver.bc.ca.undernet.org (Canada- works well from Australia)
okc.ok.us.undernet.org
okc2.ok.us.undernet.org
au.undernet.org (Australia- usually disconnected from the world)

[Europe]
fr.undernet.org (France- also available from Australia as a last resort)
nl.undernet.org (Netherlands)
si.undernet.org
uk.undernet.org (United Kingdom)
eu.undernet.org

There is also a Java client for Undernet which can be used from within your
web browser. To get this, and to discover more about Undernet, visit the
Undernet web page at:

http://www.undernet.org/

To use IRC you choose a unique nickname (that people on IRC will refer to you
by) and connect to the server. Once connected, the IRC server responds to
commands. The command to connect to #Mariah_Carey is:

/join #Mariah_Carey

Simply introduce yourself by typing messages at the keyboard. Usually there
will be someone willing to help you get started with a few commands. But be
careful exactly what commands you type, as some people may try to trick you
into disclosing private information.

The Mariah chat channel of old (1993-1998) was called #Mariah. The
retrospective page is being resurrected (previously it was Sunbelt's work),
so watch this space.
