Looking for a place to chat to other kiwis? We have our own chat room. Feel free to join anytime.

There are a few different ways to join:

Easy way : Click here to use our Java chat (less functional, less pretty, easier to get started)

Normal way : Download an IRC client like Xchat, mIRC or pIRCH98 and enter the IRC settings below. (much more functional and better looking)

We have people in our channel all the time. Most are kiwis, and its a friendly place. You are requested to be polite and respectful at all times to all users.

This is not a "hookup" or "dating" channel. You should not start asking "A.S.L.?" or other similar questions. Its just a friendly hangout place with a tech/geek influence (by virtue of its members & name).

You are encourage to register your nickname using the instructions below.

We welcome idling.

Our IRC settings are as follows:

Network: ZiRC
Room / channel: #geekzone

Some common commands are:

Changing your name:
/nick BobSmith

Joining the channel:
/join #geekzone

Registering your name:
/nickserv register

Logging on to a registered nickname:
/nickserv identify

Automatically join chat everytime you log into the ZiRC server:
/nickserv ajoin #geekzone

Send a private message to someone:
/msg usersname message goes here

Other rooms/channels of interest on ZiRC:

#jamman2110 - The hilarious JAMMAN2110 Show (Hi James)
#nz - not subject to restrictions above (non-geeky!) (#nz is looking for moderators / channel operators [and chatters for that matter])
#chitters - an international room, with relaxed language and nice people (non-geeky!) (hi flic)

[11:35] * Looking up [11:35] * Connecting to ( [11:35] * Connection failed (Connection timed out)I would move your channel to because our server is hosted locally and much more stable than all these so-called NZ based servers I am coming across.Just saying...
