Last month with Phoronix.com turning four years old, we decided to finally launch the Phoronix IRC channel. This is just a general reminder that by joining #phoronix on the popular FreeNode.net server, you can talk with other Phoronix readers about open-source software, the Phoronix Test Suite, Linux, and computer hardware. In addition, the IRC web viewer for this channel is now live today and it can be viewed from the Phoronix IRC page.
