How do I set up an IRC account?
I have never had the requirement to set up an IRC account before. I do have XCHAT installed but seem to be doing something wrong. I get this response when I try to join: "You need to identify via SASL to use this server." I am trying to use FreeNode. Am I on the wrong server? What is the SASL? How do I identify via the SASL? Is there a step by step guide to what I thought when I started this would be very easy.
