SUNDAY NIGHT IRC CHURCH SERVICES:
10 pm Eastern Standard Time
SATURDAY, 7 pm EST: the INTERNATIONAL IRC DEVIVALS
Connect using your IRC program, or using our new experimental WEB BROWSER CHAT LINK to join
irc.liii.com, irc.fef.net, or any other "FEFNET" carrier
(http://www.fef.net for deeper info)
OR JUST CLICK HERE (Modemac's Java browser portal)
New SECOND SubGenius IRC Channel: #subgenii on irc.fef.net
(see the website of one of the hostesses)
Any given time of day or week, you may find SubGenii communing in either 'room' on this network. THE SUBGENIUS FOUNDATION, INC. IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BEHAVIOR OF *ANY* OF THESE PERSONS.
Some less geekful SubGenii may feel unready to install a for-real IRC program. However, recent innovations allow you do do IRC-chat through a plug-in that works with browsers like Netscape Navigator and Explorer. Our beloved friend at FeFNet, Rev. Frank, created a new web-based chat interface so that visitors to the site can join the chat, without any new programs. You don't even need Java. The beta version is at http://www.blurbco.com/frank -- CHECK IT OUT! (Note -- this might not work on all Macintoshes.)
Another basic, bare-bones edition of a Java-based IRC client for Web browsers can be used through mighty Rev. Modemac's personal Web site at:
Modemac sez: "And yes, I agree: Java sucks.
"HOWEVER, a majority of newcomers to the Net are using Java...because they don't know any better. Therefore, a Java-based "chat room" is now an ideal way to entice newbies and newcomers to join us on the Sunday evening IRC Devivals (as well as during the rest of the week). Once they arrive, we can then help them to escape the trap of Java, and try out other options.
"Besides, it's better to point browsers in the direction of the IRC Devivals, which are *already* popular and accessible to nearly anyone, rather than try to host a Java-based "chat room" like those other Web sites do.
"Drawback #1: The Java applet is unregistered. I'll probably cough up the cash to register it if it proves to be reasonably successful.
"Try out the Java client, and post your flames on alt.slack. Don't email me about this, because I'd rather have it all done in public for everyone to see...especially those of you with more knowledge of Java than I have.
First Online Church of "Bob"
We used to keep all the logs of these amazing IRC "jams" here, partly so that we could decipher what the hell we were all talking about and if there was anything incredibly holy accidentally spouted, but it's JUST TOO MUCH. So we're sporadic. It's a living spew, it can't be tied down.

SubGenii aren't using these channels ONLY on Saturday and Sunday nights. Chances are, you'll find Found Souls there any time.
(NOTE FOR MACINTOSH USERS: Most of us use IRCle, a simple and stable IRC doohickey.)
Following are the logs of some pretty old Sunday IRC devivals. (I, Stang got tired of webberizing the files.) Special thanks to Rev. Modemac and Rev. Friday Jones for sending in logs we missed.
