    I'm there all the time...
    I think it's just the fact that there are so many people chatting at once, it just makes it worse. But there's no better place to chat with the actual developers.

    in my opinion i would make several rooms:
    ubuntu-help
    ubuntu-chat
    ubuntu-wiki
    ubuntu-whatever

    It's on irc.freenode.net right? I have never been able to connect to that server. Maybe they block .edu's. :/

    maybe your edu blocks freenode

    I'm panickedthumb when I get on, but that's rare. I hate slam full IRC chat rooms, and last few times I was there it was wicked full. I don't know how people hold conversations under those conditions.

    when i was living on-campus, my university blocked IRC.... and p2p... and everything else... i just got fed up with the fact that i was doing legal downloading (like linux isos) and it kept getting blocked. So i moved into an apartment.

    anyway....

    i'm OddAbe19 i'm not on right now, since i just got done rebuilding my PC.... and i haven't had time to configure everything to my liking

    I the poofyhairguy, but that place is a mad house. I like the idea of dividing the room.

    The problem is that it's a support channel, and you just don't get to have conversations in support channels (if you have long conversations about irrelevant stuff, you get the pleasure of me asking you to please take it elsewhere).
