Maccast Apple ‘Let Us Loop You In’ Event – Live Chat

Apple 'Let Us Loop You In' Event

If you’d like to hang out and chat with other members of the Maccast community during today’s live streaming of Apple’s 03.21.2016 ‘Let Us Loop You In’ live event, we’ve set up a live chat here.

The official stream starts March 21st at 10 a.m. PDT, but we’ll be hanging out before hand, so feel free to come join us.

The system is an IRC based chat and uses a Flash based embedded client (which may take some time to load), so it requires Flash to be installed. If you prefer, you can also connect using an IRC client of your choice to irc.geekshed.net port 6667. I use Textual 5 on my Mac and they have an iOS version available. The channel(room) to use is #themaccast.
