I have no idea what I'm doing. I go and type in my user name and in under channel I type in #concerthall and click connect because there is NO go button.

All you need to do is click this link: http://mibbit.com/#concerthall@irc.psigenix.net

When it loads, just enter your nick. It should say "Channel: #concerthall" next to that. The GO button is right next to it. Hit GO, then wait a few seconds (it will show another page). The channel should pop up. You can then start chatting immediately. If it doesn't work, try using a different browser.

Okay, but there's nothing called a "go" button it's called "connect." Well I've entered the chatroom many times and there's nobody in there.

You must be having the same problem John was having. I assure you that it has never been empty since I have created this thread. There are always at least 7-8 people in there at all hours of the day (it is an international chatroom).

Make sure that the server you are connected to is irc.psigenix.net and that the channel you are joining is #concerthall. That is basically all you need.

Could this other page be the source of this confusion? Although it comes up only for a fraction second before the channel page comes up (with a fast connection), it does have a couple of fields with a "Connect" button next to them. (And it also appears when you close the channel and server tabs.)

Yeah, that is the page I was speaking of. It does have some other buttons, but ignore them and just wait for the channel to pop up automatically. That is why I told Mirror Image to switch browsers, for I wasn't sure how different browsers would handle that page.

I like him. He's his own man, in some ways "in between" . . . sometimes he can dance like Scarlatti, sometimes his music has the rarefied vision of Bach.

You know, my invitation for using the IRC channel still stands. I'm there most days, and it generally always has a few people in it.

I found this quote and I'm not sure if it agrees with me.

This hit the news today: for the "Water is WET!!!" type of "study" plaguing us today.

Quote
Playing classical music such as Beethoven and Mozart to young children boosts their concentration and self-discipline, a new study suggests.

Youngsters also improve their general listening and social skills by being exposed to repertoires from composers including Ravel, Shostakovich and Mendelssohn.

In addition, they are likely to appreciate a wider range of music in later years, according to a study from the Institute of Education, (IoE), University of London....

Meanwhile a study from the University of St Andrews, Fife, Scotland, last September suggested that musicians have sharper minds and are less likely to suffer a mental decline.

Researchers said that mastering instruments such as the piano, flute or violin improves people's ability to pick up mistakes and fix them quickly.

They perform tasks faster and do not allow occasional slip-ups to derail them due to their hours of practice.

The study indicated that playing an instrument could protect against a deterioration in mental abilities through age or illness.
