Okay, i'm a little clueless right now. I've seen many references to IRC, and I looked up the website for it on google, but I cant figure out how to register a name for chat. I dont even know what IRC stands for. please help me!

IRC is short for Internet Relay Chat, a network protocol for chat. The preferred way to connect to IRC is with an IRC client, although there are web IRC clients available. search google for "IRC client" or "IRC web client".
A "nick" is an IRC name.
Channel names start with "#", trillek is on channel "#project-trillek"
irc.freenode.net is the address for the IRC service Trillek uses.
IRC clients use commands that start with "/"
Example:
/connect irc.freenode.net
/nick someircname
/join #project-trillek

Or go here: http://webchat.freenode.net/
Type in a nickname you want to use.
And channel is #project-trillek
