- How do I get rid if the scrolling messages?
Ctrl-click on the message to delete it immediately, or `shift'-click to mark it for deletion once it has scrolled off the screen.
- How do I send a message?
Double-click in the scroller (or cmd-1) to make the send window visible, then choose and appropriate group, type your message and hit return.
- How do I see who else is around?
Open the presence window - see the Windows menu or use the keyboard shortcut, cmd-2.
- I only see my messages - where are the others?
Try sending messages to Chat since there's usually someone lurking around on that channel. Note that most current users are in Australia in the GMT+10 timezone so they may well be asleep.
- How do I get news?
Try adding slashdot.org as a news group.
- Are there any bots I can chat to?
Normally Alice is around. Talk to her by sending messages prefixed by alice?
- Changing colors doesn't work.
Currently, color changes only affect newly arrived messages.
