I would like to take this opportunity to invite all of you to visit a new
chat service for Scouts and Guides of all ages, as well as adult leaders.
The service is called Scout Talk, and is accessible via any telnet client.
The beauty of this arrangement is that, unlike IRC in which there are
thousands of channels to wade through, the program is all that you need to
access to talk with fellow Scouts and Guides. (Note: by Guides I am
referring to Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.)
Also, this chat service addresses one of the major problems with IRC:
it's simply not safe for children, because of the amount of pornography
propagated on IRC. Not so with Scout Talk, as we do not tolerate such
behaviour on Scout Talk. In fact, we have a filtering system in place
which will remove all swearing from public communication.
The talker's address is dryn.kharduin.net 1908. Note, if you are
unfamiliar with talkers, that the "1908" portion of the address goes
whereever your telnet client allows you to enter the port. If you are
unfamiliar with talkers, please email me for a tutorial on how to use a
