Why don't you use the lightweight chatroom. :)

No Captain. You need to see if you got MIrc trying downloading that, or Xchat, or what everyone mostly uses hyperIrc or something like that.

Go to http://www.java.com and download java.

Don't get into the whole IRC thing. It's a giant pain.

hello and welcome to wrongplanet.net, about java, java is a web plugin program that helps in animations and graphics on websites. websites use differant types of graphic interfaces such as java,flash, quick are a few, putting java into computer will not hurt anything. these programs run in the backround while on internet and if one is not installed or updated it will effect website use and chat such as wrongplanet's java chat thing.

what you should do is also go into internet explorer properties and enable java in advanced settings. (if already installed on computer)

if its not installed do like juliekitty said and go to www.java.com and download java.

i hope this helps

If you just want the Java so you can go to the #WrongPlanet chat then a better solution is to download a real IRC client. That way you can set the screen sizes and chat features the way you want and don't have to worry about your browser closing the window on you.
