1 alt.tv.red-dwarf Live!

The a.tv.r-d'ers invaded IRC some time ago, and regular
get-togethers used to take place on Sunday nights around 20:30, UK
time. This is still a peak time, but there is nearly always someone
on at any time.
Although #starbug started out as a newsgroup channel, it has grown
to be more than that, with some regular people that have not even
heard of alt.tv.red-dwarf. It has it's own webpage at:

http://www.lunarcity7.cx/~starbug/

It's worth noting that what used to be EFNet has now split into two
separate networks, IRCnet and EFnet. Check which network your
server will connect you to!

For the temporally challenged =), here's a little table.
