How to connect to live chat

For day to day use it is best to use a proper Internet Relay Chat (IRC) program such as xchat to connect. You can install it with: apt-get install xchat, or you can use other IRC clients. The server is chat.freenode.net and the channel is #mepis

Only if you are unable to use an IRC program, it is possible to connect to the chat through your web-browser. Just go to this page and change the nickname as well as the two drop-down boxes to chat.freenode.net and #mepis. So just to re-iterate: you change all three of the fields away from the default, then click 'login'.
