SAS Programmers Worldwide are already united using SAS-L, and we don't have to be logged on to see what's happening. What's the advantage to IRC?

IRC is similar to AOL chat rooms but they are much more text based.
IRC works with any internet connection. You connect to a server and then
join a channel (chat room) and there is your live online resource of 100
people who specialize in your area.
For more information on irc please go to http://www.irc.org/
By setting up a channel devoted to SAS programmers we can unite SAS
programmers worldwide. Could you imagine the benefits???
