Stickey's usually contain a lot of good info, along with the irc room.

i have connection issues to with mIRC in some servers. seems like it's busy or something.

just make sure you don't have any P2P apps like kazaa open. they hog bandwidth like a mofo.

no i was just talkin about the dled proggy. i'd rather use the proggy, makes me feel more..... uh...... sophisticated.

why do people want everyone to idle in their channels then if they aren't even there..... just to make themselves feel like they have friends? cause in cs theres so many clan people who are like idle in #retribution (actual clan of local peoples) or whatever....

So there's been quite a few contests in the past? I just started folding halfway through this past CPU Giveaway, and I thought that was impressive...are you telling me this stuff goes on somewhat of a regular basis?! That's sick! (in a good way :p )

that sounds good for me. I feel that I have a chance now since my best friend won an XP in the last contest. (nerdlogic)
