did you know that you can link to the chatroom directly and have #instructables already typed in the channel? http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=instructables

Or use embed code and embed it in a forum or instructable:

<iframe src="http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=instructables" width="647" height="400"></iframe>

The #instructables was really for people using clients, but thanks for the link. You like the video ?

Well, what I mean is that I have done all the preliminaries to get in, and then I saved my settings :-) Now it signs me in when I open Chatzilla
