IRC is Internet Relay Chat. Many IRC applications exist and you can use any of them to join the GnuCash IRC channel:
server: irc.gnome.org channel: #gnucash
Generally you'll want to run your IRC client and then tell it:
/server irc.gnome.org /join #gnucash
When you join the GnuCash IRC channel, you should speak up. If you have a question, please ask it right away. But then you shoould wait. Don't expect an answer right away. Sometimes you'll get an answer within seconds. Other times you might have to wait several hours until one of the core developers wakes up. Please be kind, and please wait in the channel.
