What is F2F, and how do you use IRC and where is it? Ben

I have no idea what is F2F, but IRC are online chatrooms. If you go to Applications - Internet - Pidgin, then add an account, select IRC for Protocol, and "irc.freenode.net" for the server, you'll be able to join chats in the freenode server (it's the most popular one).

i believe this is what you are refering to when you say F2F.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friend-to-friend

It isnt very common from what I can tell.

Does one need microphone/headphone to use IRC?

Nope, you just type. IRC doesn't support voice/video.

F2F is meant to be face to face...like meeting in real life somewhere. Occasionally we'll get together at a restaurant and talk Ubuntu.
