Debro, that channel is open to anyone who wants to pop in.  At least with
the #obos-cdt channel I can manage who gets in and who doesn't.

Why setting up another irc channel if there's already one open and with the
chance of getting to it from a web page?
If you don't like irc clients, is it quite better to use a web interface,

We're splitting up a lot more here...

From a client: server: irc.webmaster.com channel: #openbeos

From the web: http://openbeos.laevolucion.com/chat/index.htm
