For those of us on Unix boxes, we could always try using
talk or ytalk (some sites, such as mine, have added ytalk, a
more-than-two version of talk). Finger the person first
to see if they are logged in, then try talk their-address.
I'm not always logged in my unix computer, but if I am, I'm
kla@helios.augustana.edu for any who care. To use ytalk,
just ytalk address address address....

IRC I understand is a bandwidth waster of inet. Some of my
students have used it, but I haven't yet, and we basically
discourage it for users of our unix box.
