I asked a question yesterday about whether ZBrush had a chat room where we could gather and discuss things and share artwork in realtime. I found out there's one on Southern's site, but we tried it and found the java chat interface to be a bit unfriendly (plus cut and paste wasn't allowed, which made sharing posts and image links very hard).
Therefore, we decided to move to IRC and it was great, but rather lonely as there were only two of us in there. So, I'm attempting to make it grow into a real channel with users in there all the time. It's on #EFNet in #ZBrush. Everyone's welcome and it'd be great to have it grow and be able to log on and chat with ZBrush users immediately. So, if you have a chat client like mirc ( available free for download at http://www.mirc.com ), please come and join us! It might be a little quiet and empty at first, but if we all stay in there a good length, we might get some momentum going and it might grow into a big channel! Thanks
