"the channel" where we hang out is an IRC channel.  You'll need to  
install an IRC client, but will then be in a live chat room with a  
good number of the team members.  If you need help getting setup, let  
us know.  You can also participate in testing without being in the  
channel, but for quick answers to questions that come up, it's the  
best place to be.
