To get a wider possible audience and have the lowest barrier to
participation possible, I propose we install:


on digital (the LA box) and have it set up ready to immediately point
people to the right channel.

The config (http://cgiirc.sourceforge.net/docs/config.php) looks really
easy to set up to point people to the right place.

It allows restriction so that people can only join the server and
channel we configure.

This is so that a working knowledge of IRC is not required to
participate and ask questions.

Admin team - it's probably best if you set this up with the proper
packages and such - this way we'll get updates.
