Info


IRC ImageInternet Relay Chat (IRC) is one of the original immediate communication methods on the internet. They served as a model for the well known "chat rooms" that came much later. When connected to an IRC channel, everything you type is propagated to everyone else in the channel. It is an excellent way to get immediate support or just shoot the breeze online.


On occasion PLUG hosts virtual meetings in the channel.

One of our members maintains an IRC channel for PLUG on the Freenode. Point your IRC client at:

Server: irc.freenode.net

Port: 6667

Channel: #plugaz

There are several who are there, seemingly, 24/7. Remember that it is possible that the people connected in the channel may not actually be at their computer. Be patient waiting for a response. If you have specific needs to be addressed, it can be more productive to request help in the email list to meet in the channel at a specific time.

PLUG is a group of people in the Phoenix, Arizona, USA area who get together several times a month. We have various meetings in several different formats all with the common goal of educating the public about the Linux operating system.  No knowledge of Linux is presumed or required, although most members are running Linux in some application.

PLUG membership is no cost and open to anyone. We also welcome users and fans of all Free Software and Open Source Software such as GNU and BSD.

To join just attend a meeting, subscribe to a mailing list,  or join our IRC channel. We recommend the Discussion mailing list for those new to PLUG or Linux.

PLUG holds several meetings per month in different locations around the Phoenix valley. Where the members desire and create, we have meetings.

A purely volunteer organization, everything happens in PLUG because someone stepped up and made it happen. If you have something you'd like to do, let the group know about it. You are sure to find something help with and we love more help.
