Dear Saptak,

It would be great if you give us a brief introduction on how to use IRC
clients (not in IRC obviously). I read about it on the internet, however,
it seems a bit old school and clients have a lot of features. Please
consider this for people who are newbies to IRC clients, like me.

Thanking you,
Siddhant Shenoy.
