Here is a tricky question for you all...
How does one request files via IRC?
I saw Slycks introduction to Usenet (its what got me interested in Usenet to start with) and they mentioned that you can request missing files or even entire downloads (ie old movies etc) over IRC channels.
Could someone maybe do a tutorial on it - particularly for Mac users but I'm not fussy. :-) I had a dabble with IRC and to be honest I found it really confusing and a little intimidating to newbies like myself.
