I’m just starting this irc thing and I need to register but I don’t understand these instructions. I was wondering if someone could explain it a little. I’m using Gaim on Linux and it says this at the freenode page.
Register your IRC nick: <b>/msg nickserv register <your-password></b>
Add a valid email address to your <b>primary</b> nickserv entry so that we have a way to reset your password, and so that we have it in case you want an 'unaffiliated' cloak. To keep your email address private, rather than displaying it publicly, first mark it as hidden: <b>/msg nickserv set hide email on</b> Then set the email address: <b>/msg nickserv set email <your-email-address></b>
So where do I put that stuff?
