Not knocking your idea down, but what makes you think that you would get any more real time than you do here. I for one monitor this forum and would not have the opportunity to monitor this and IRC at the same time. Besides I agree with Doug, there would be many companies (specially any that are worth their salt) that would restrict access to IRC channels and chatting.

Also jmirc is a cliet for BB's to access and chat in IRC...I heard its a great program....was just an idea..I really think it would be usefull..we have ALOT of members here...and being able to give advice and get help in real time would be a great addition to the forums. Whoever owns this site should really consider it I think.
