Registering for IRC

You need an IRC client (such as Xchat, for example) if you want to do this.

These are the steps followed to join a freenode.net channel, otherwise you'd be forwarded to a message saying "you must register your nick[name]."

1. Open the IRC client and type in /msg nickserv register ... where ... is your nickname
2. To login, type /msg nickserve identify ... where ... is your nick.
3. To add your email address, /msg nickserv set email ... where ... is your email.
4. Join a channel!
