Okay,, so as long as I go to "irc.linuxfoundation.org #linuxdotcom" I can find you or someone guide me through this issue I am having?
Also that is the stragest web address I've ever seen, with the " #linuxdotcom" . That's not part of it is it? I suppose I probably sound pretty dumb now asking that.
No one is dumb because of not knowing something so don't worry about it ;)
That is not an web address hehe You need an IRC client (xchat, kvirc, mirc, quassel...there's many!) to connect to an IRC network (irc.linuxfoundation.org, freenode.org...). Then you can join any channel (#linuxdotcom for example).
Then you'll join the #linuxdotcom channel.
Once in there ask for help in this issue ( write my name and I'll get a notification, if I'm around I'll try to help you :) ).
