This week I decided to get a bit old skool and dropped back into IRC, after a rather long hiatus. I personally like IRC more than mailing lists because of the immediacy. Although being in the UK the channels are generally a bit on the quiet side until mid afternoon
For the Flexers / ActionScript 3.0 devs out there, they have #flex (IRC link for ease). Those of you who are interested in AIR there is a channel for you too, (although it is a bit quiet at the moment): #air. And for Flashers, they also have #flash (Not seen any AS 3.0 stuff in here so it may be primarily AS 2.0 – I could be wrong though).
Hopefully catch some of you in there for chat :)
