Taking the advice of a full 66% of the comments on the last entry, I had a look at the #haskell IRC channel. I was honestly surprised to see 500+ people signed in. It would be nice, I figured, to have a place to bounce ideas off of people, ask questions, and see what other people are doing.
Since nothing in life is ever easy, of course something went wrong. For whatever reason, whenever I post something, I'm almost immediately disconnected from the server for 'excess flood', whatever that means. I thought it might be something along the lines of "you're spamming the channel", but I wouldn't think one sentence would qualify.
It seems that I've somehow turned IRC into a read-only information source (for me, anyway - other people are chatting away). D'oh.
