I've never really used IRC before, and I thought I might give it a try. Yesterday I tried connecting to #perl on EFNet, DALnet, and freenode.net. I hardly saw anyone I recognized, either from here or from Perl Monks, or from work. The conversations weren't really about Perl either. (I suppose I should be used to that from the PM chatterbox.
Am I looking in the wrong server/channel? Or do the cool Perl folks just not use IRC?
