Yeah, I've been idling there for a few months too. There are usually 5-10 people there, lots of action for such a small channel.
The moar, the bettah!
If you're planning to use mIRC, you just need to type in /server irc.efnet.org -j #bassplayer
From there, I can help you with whatever in mIRC is bothering you. ...or you could try something like ChatZilla on Firefox or XChat or whatever.
resurrecting an old topic i'm interested in...
I personally idle on #bassplayer on the EfNet IRC server.
for those who are lost...
Internet Relay Chat
# means Channel
so #bassplayer is Channel Bassplayer basically...
EfNet is a network, conglomeration of a bunch of different servers you can log on to that are all connected together to allow everyone connected to all of these servers to see each other in a channel...
so... there's always a handful of folks in there, not always talking much, but sometimes we do. i'd like to see more folks idle in #bassplayer someday! as for how to use irc, google it or get the MIRC client program, it's -fairly- straightforward and has a good help file.
