    For starters, the font is so tiny as to be unreadable. It does not abide by the fonts I set for my BB. Secondly, I found out some time later --via IM-- that someone was trying to get me on the phone and was getting, "the number is no longer in service," and when I tried calling them I got a radio error. This was directly tied to the jmIrc app, since it NEVER happened in the few months I've had the BB ...and NEVER happened after I deleted the damn thing.

    I don't have a clue what the app did, but it certainly b0rked the works. I was fortunate that my internet was still receiving, or I would have missed a rather important call.

    Re: How to: Connect on Absurd-IRC #stackchat

    Hmmm, not sure about the font thing. I never changed my font from the default size 8. When I tried to change it just now it didn't change anywhere on the device. I'm guessing that is a theme issue though from a personal standpoint I'm not going to sweat it since I'm fine with the size 8 font anyways.

    As for your issue: Are you using the theme that came on the device or a different one? Have you tried changing themes to see if it makes a difference?

    This disruption of other programs is strange. I've not experienced anything like that. Have you tried just uninstalling and then reinstalling the jmIrc app?

    Thumbs up Re: How to: Connect on Absurd-IRC #stackchat

    We setup an UNO game in the channel now. Type !uno to begin. Below is information on how to play. Have fun people!

    Commands are as follows:

    To play a card type "play <color b/g/y/r> <number/word on card>"
    For example: "play b 0" will play the Blue zero card
    For example: "play g dt" will play the green Draw Two card
    For example: "play r r" will play the red reverse card

    <bot> Top card: blue 0
    -bot- your cards: red 0 - blue 9
    <PLayer> play b 9
    <bot> Player played a Blue 9

    More commands:

    !uno - Starts the game
    join - Join the game
    !unoend - Stops the current game
    draw - draw a card from the deck if you cant match the top card
    pass - pass your turn to the next player (much draw first)
    count - displays the amount of cards in each players hand
    !unostat - stats for a player !unostat <username>

    Source: http://members.aol.com/babso00001/unorules.html

    UNO IN A NUTSHELL
    Each player is dealt 7 cards with the remaining ones placed face down to form a DRAW pile.
    The top card of the DRAW pile is turned over to begin a DISCARD pile.
    The first player has to match the card in the DISCARD pile either by number, color or word.
    For example, if the card is a red 7, player must throw down a red card or any color 7.
    Or the player can throw down a Wild Card. If the player doesn't have anything to match, he must pick a card from the DRAW pile.
    If he can play what is drawn, great. Otherwise play moves to the next person.
    Once a player has no cards left, the hand is over. Points are scored (see scoring section) and you start over again. That's UNO in a nutshell.


    OBJECT:
    Points are scored by ridding yourself of all the cards in your hand before your opponent(s).
    You score points for cards left in your opponent's hands.
    Cards as follows:
    19 Blue Cards - 0 to 9
    19 Green Cards - 0 to 9
    19 Red Cards - 0 to 9
    19 Yellow Cards - 0 to 9
    8 Draw Two cards - 2 each in Blue, Green, Red and Yellow
    8 Reverse Cards - 2 each in Blue, Green, Red and Yellow
    8 Skip Cards - 2 each in Blue, Green, Red and Yellow
    4 Wild Cards
    4 Wild Draw 4 cards


    WHAT WORD CARDS MEAN
    Draw Two Cards - When this card is played, the next person to play must draw 2 cards and forfeit his turn.
    Reverse Card - Simply reverse direction of play. Play left becomes play right, and vice versa.
    Skip Card - The next player to play loses his turn and is "skipped." Mighty clever.
    Wild Card - This card can be played on any card. The person playing the card calls any color to continue play, including the one presently being played if desired. A Wild card can be played even if the player has another playable card in his hand.
    Wild Draw Four Card - This is the best, meanest, most sneaky card to have. Not only does the player get to call the next color played, but the next player has to pick 4 cards and forfeit his turn. There is a hitch, however (of course): you can only play this card when you don't have a card in your hand that matches the color of the card previously played.
    Note: A player may have a matching number or word card of a different color in his hand and plays his "Wild Draw Four" card.

    SCORING
    When a player is out of cards, he gets points for cards left in the opponent's hands as follows:
    All cards through 9 Face value
    Draw 2 = 20 points
    Reverse = 20 points
    Skip = 20 points
    Wild = 50 points
    Wild Draw 4 = 50 points

    Note: you do not have to say "uno" when youre down to your last card in this irc version

    ===========================

    To play a trivia game type !trivia or !trivia # where # is the number of questions per round. So !trivia 20 would be 20 questions per round.

    Re: How to: Connect on Absurd-IRC #stackchat

    Another alternative for all you folks stuck at school or work behind internet filters: http://ircatwork.com.

    Just key in 3 things:

    nickname: use your own
    server: Irc.absurd-irc.net
    channel: #stackchat

    Click the login button and you're there!

    Once you're in you just operate as normal.

    works well and it totally web based.

    I had to find a solution while stuck at school tonight behind a wicked filter and firewall.

    For all you people having problems logging in on jmIrc you can try:

    In the page in jmIrc where you set up your profile enter either one of these 2 alternate servers where it says "IRC server"

    sec.hub.Absurd-IRC.net

    or

    liquidrain.Absurd-IRC.net

    See if that works for you.

    this should connect and autologin to the room. I just tried it on three machines and it works yay. This is with firefox ver 2.0.0.9

    So was I on a little too late? No one was on at 3am.
