Proper newbie IRC question here: in order to access the #django IRC channel on freenode, I need to register a nickname with freenode.
freenode’s instructions for that are here:
It says to send a message like the following via IRC:
/msg nickserv register <password> <email>
I’m using Colloquy on the Mac. How can I send a message like that using Colloquy? I’m not clear on how I can send IRC messages without already being in an IRC channel, and obviously sending a message including my password in an IRC channel, with other people able to see it, doesn’t sound like a good idea.
