WELCOME TO THE AMIGA NET CAFE
Home of DALnet`s IRC AMIGA channels.
For The latest Amiga News, and the greatest collection of Amiga Links hit the AWD!
Need a Link? then click here on my links page.... LINKS PAGE
What is AmigaCafe? well to put it simply its a JAVA applet connected directly to DALNET, a large IRC network chat.
IRC is a great communication system, where many users participate real time talking on various topics, ive simply created a page that links all the great Amiga Chat Rooms on IRC and allows you to participate yourself via the java apllet doors.
Ok what do ya need to get started? simple a Java based web browser..aha...first problem, Amiga Browsers dont actually suppot Java (YET!) but they will very very soon! this is the only way I could find to do this, so if there is any other way, by all means let me know! So you either need a PC with a PC web browser (or mac!) or a dedicated IRC program for the Amiga and hook up manually! (try spider.dal.net).
With that cleared up, lets introduce to the rules.....
NO FLAMING, NO ABUSIVE BEHAVIOUR, NO SWEARING, NO FLOODING (unless its agaisnt Cooksey...ill come to that later!!) THESE CHANNELS ARE FOR CONSTRUCTIVE TALK, BY ALL MEANS SAY WHAT YOU THINK, BUT RESPECT OTHER USERS, IF THEY HAVE THERE OWN IDEAS DONT CRITISE THEM, OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE UNPOPULAR VERY QUICKLY!
Its important to stick to these guides as you will soon find yourself being banned from the rooms, they do have Operators by the way! some are human, and will each react differently to sacasm and wit :) others are BOTs...get used to that word, as you will be seeing a lot of them! :) what is a bot? a bot is quite simply a scripted program, set to respond to certain things, Ie a swear word my cause a bot to react in a automatic way, advertising may, flooding etc you get the picture! so if your new, ask someone the rules of the perticular group first before saying to much! and if it is a bot it may not be that talkative, so dont be offended if it doesnt respond! :)
If you dont have access to a Java Based web browser then click here to download a text file that helps explain about how to conncet up to Dalnet using normal IRC clients.

|Here is a basic rundown of some of the commands
to IRC if your new. Firstly when you enter a chat room you will need a nickname, now
be sensible here, there are thousands of people online at DALnet servers, so dont choose
something obvious, nor anything rude or offensive, if you do choose a Nickname that
someone has got you will get a warning message telling to either identify or change your
nickname. If you have never been to IRC before, or not registered before its likely
its someone elses, you have 60secs to change before its changed ot a guest account, to
change the nickname yourself type this...
/nick mynewnickhere for example /nick bob_dylon
you cant have spaces in a nickname so so use underscores or slashes.
If you want to register your nickname and no one else has it type this when you are called what you want...
/msg nickserv register yournewpassword
and remember your password :P
when you log on afterwards you will be asked to indentify, simply type this line
/msg nickserv identify yourpasswordhere
Ok now your on a channel and you have a nick, by typing in the channel everyone sees what your typing, you can however private message someone simply by typing /msg and the nick of the person you want to private message.....
/msg targetnickhere contents of the message for example /msg SaintAmiga I hate you, you smell, you are a lamer!
ok you might want to scipt to a different channel now your in one, you dont have to go back, infact you can join ANY channel you like even ones ive not listed from within my java rooms simply type this...
If your registered, you might went to send a memo to a friend so when they get on they have a message from you, you must be registered to do this, but once you have done that you type this to send a memo...
/msg memoserv send nicknametosendto
Finally if some is using your nick you can use these two commands to get it back....
/msg nickserv ghost nickname password
/msg nickserv recover nickname password
on using recover you then have to release by typing /msg nickserv release nickname password
Comming soon....AmiTech a room dedicate to technical issues and problems with the Amiga, AmigaCoders a chat room for Amiga C coders and AmiComms, somewhere to go and talk about Amiga and Communicationm, these rooms will be available soon!
Whats the story Morning Glory...or better know as COOKSEY?
So whats all this cooksey lark you have heard mentioned? who is he? well he is a so called Amiga Fan (yeah ok!) who goes under the following names ^Amiga , Amiga , ^Amiga^ or SaintAmiga (dont mistake him for Amiga^ that guy is ok) you can always know its him by his IP that mentions Smokey or USA (normally both) he is a lamer, who has every normal Amiga Chat Group on Dalnet agaisnt him! he is best avioded! he cannont be resond with, he even fights with the IRC Cops!!! You shouldnt find him on any of the above sites but you will find on a room called AMIGA-3d he is tottally insane, he bans peopel from this room for no reason, he critieses the Amiga, he critieses you and calls you a nazi (he has done with everyone!!) says he is a Amiga fan but his topic at the moment on his room is THE AMIGA IS DEAD!! yeah right! what is this guy on? once he non stop messaged me saying did I know that AI use MS Frontpage on there web site? like I care!! He then sent me insults and threats about my family, work, computer, tried to flood me etc, im not the only one, he causes so much trouble that the IRC COPS *sigh* when you mention his name!
Today he said he sent 725 Emails about me, my phone number, email, computer, IP, Server details all over the world, if this is true then he is a spammer as well, he runs some poxy company that sells TV dishes, and other commercial stuff, he openly critieses people for no reason, he cusses DALNET on his page, and takes personal satisfaction from harrasing people even when they mind there own business, I hate this guy, so does everyone else, only a nutta like him would try to ping flood a IRC COP, frankly if he keeps this up Ill sue his ass off, and if anyone hacks my server I have it in black and white that he caused it!
Anyway if you wanna laugh, or just to chuck some insults at this total waster go to #Amiga-3d be as insulting as you like to this guy, he is a total loser, we are in the progress of getting him BANNED from IRC DALnet. Send him messages, memo`s whatever!!
