There's a #gotmead on irc.magicstar.net now that I have registered. I chose magicstar because I know I've seen websites with built-in chat clients for that server, so it can be set up to be accessed via the site. At the moment, of course, you'll need an IRC client.

Since I'm not generally availible for chatting on saturday night, someone who is should PM me. If you're online now I can just op you in the channel; otherwise I'll give you the password for telling ChanServ to do so.
