Hi Jeremy,

There are pretty good instructions for using IRC on the OpenStack Wiki
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/IRC and Freenode site
And a tutorial here: http://www.irchelp.org/irchelp/irctutorial.html

If you have questions that aren't covered there, please let me know.  I'm
happy to do an IRC walk through, if needed.
