    Red face IRC question: proper channel for Arkansas???

    When Tony mentioned monitoring the Ubuntu Arkansas channel at a recent CARLUG meeting, I thought maybe I should check it out a little ... HOWEVER I have shockingly little (read: no) experience with IRC. Plus I just discovered that on the LoCo teams page https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoTeamList the channel is listed as #ubuntu-arkansas and on the TeamArkansas page https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TeamArkansas it's listed as #ubuntu-us-ar ... ! Do they resolve to the same channel, or are they duplicates?

    I'm posting this here on the forums and then I'll fire up pidgin or something and see if I can figure out which one is being used.

    OK so I have the name Tommy1 registered with irc.freenode.net (aka irc.ubuntu.com) but when I tried to join the channel ubuntu-arkansas (which apparently did resolve to ubuntu-us-ar) the channel server kicked me off, saying it's an invitation-only channel. Hmmmmmmmm.... lots to figure out....

    OK #ubuntu-us-ar let me in and it says there are other folks in the "room."

    I just updated the LoCo Teams page with the correct IRC and forum link
