Software for IRC
The most commonly used program for IRC for MacIntosh is IRCLE. It is a shareware program. It can be downloaded from: The Official Ircle Home Page (This site is in the Netherlands).
Excellent instructions are available at each of these sites so we will not go through the whole set-up of the program. The only thing that you will need to do is to add irc.pipechat.org to the list of servers. When you do add it you should also set the Network to "standalone_servers" since irc.pipechat.org is not part of any IRC Network.
There are other IRC programs available for the Macintosh that can be found at all of the usual software repositories
