By popular demand, I have revived the IRC Ixabot.
To connect, you need IRC client software (if you are on windows and don't know what to do, download http://www.mirc.com/ trial version -- it's not free but you can try it for free).
Connect to server whigdev.weremight.com on the default port (6667 if you need to know...)
The ixabot will only speak to you if your nick begins Guest_ followed by some numbers. Sorry - he's built that way, to not annoy others.
Whatever you say will be analyzed against the first 27 persons who joined the Lyceum. Are you Ixabert? Paste some text and find out....
