    Yep, Posting code or reply's to others in the public chat room
    of IRC is hell! And personal help doesn't really help other board
    members does it? Any alternatives?

    There are a few programming channels on IRC, like c++, winprog. So if someone really needs real-time help, those are always there.

    Posting code isnt really an issue since all someone has to do is start a thread here and post a link. The benifit to having a channel on IRC is to allow real-time discussion about topics, be it programming or not.
    C Code. C Code Run. Run Code Run... Please!

    I'd enjoy chatting with you guys if anyone bothered to show up. :-) Getting people to participate is the hard part.
