IRC or Internet Relay Chat is a text-based chat medium. In short, it is the predecessor to instant messaging clients most people use today. Although somewhat antiquated, it is still in use and is a great alternative to proprietary and closed-off chat media. SpongeBobia has a channel on the FreeNode IRC network, registered by Test on test test, test.
