I just wanted to inform everyone about a new IRC channel on the AfterNET server. #graphicsdev was created to be a meeting place for graphics gurus and enthusiasts. You can check out the official site here here. If you need some help with something graphics related or just feel like discussing some graphics theory, feel free to stop by and talk. The logs of worthwhile conversations are stored and will be made available on the aforementioned web site. You say you don't have an IRC client? You can use the GDNet chat client quite easily. Just click here, and type '/join #graphicsdev' (without the quotes). We also ask that you chose a more meaningful user name, which you can easily do by typing '/nick yourNameHere' (without the quotes). You will find that many prominent members of this community already frequent the channel. We look forward to working alongside this forum to help spread knowledge and understanding of graphics programming and theory throughout this community.

Well we've been under the radar for a little while, in order to get neatly settled before inviting the masses in [smile]

Perhaps you're using a connection that's going through a firewall or something, and that firewall does not permit connections through port 6667?

It means you're unable to connect to the AfterNET network. It could mean two things:

a) AfterNET's being flaky. It's been a bit unstable lately, so this might be the case - the usual solution is to try again a few minutes later.
b) Your connection is being blocked by something at your end, e.g. a firewall. If you're not in control of your firewall you'll have to have a word with your network administrator and persuade him or her to open up port 6667 for outgoing connections...

[edit: hey, I thought you looked familiar.]

It's been nearly a month since the public announcement of #graphicsdev. We have really seen a huge response from the community. Thanks for your interest and continued support.

Many of the most knowledgeable people from this forum now frequent the channel.

I'm sure you've all read posts by at least some of the following people which all frequent #graphicsdev:
Superpig, kSquared, snk_kid, Promit, benryves, circlesoft, Monder, Washu, _the_phantom_, vertexnormal, mittens, Cypher19, Dtag, moopy, rept, prefect, Assassin, or myself.

We also have special guests on occasion. We've had people from nVidia and ATI, as well as many prominent game development studios. YannL has also made an appearance once or twice. You never know who you're really talking to in #graphicsdev, and that's probably why I personally like it so much. There are many intelligent people sharing their thoughts and views on many different aspects of games and graphics.

I encourage those of you who are newer to graphics developement to join and listen in on our conversations. This community has never had such a focused group of intelligent individuals so easily accessible and willing to help. Take advantage of it. Hope to see you all there soon.
