#BDSM-CU


#BDSM-CU is a brand new IRC channel where people with video capabilities can get together and swap connection details resulting in a live video conference.

The # is sister to #BDSM-UK but we do welcome all comers, you don't even have to be in the UK.

#BDSM-CU is the brainchild of [-BuBs-] and was created on 29th September 1997.

Please respect our wishes and do not join if you are under 18 years of age. The chat on the # will be strongly adult orientated and we don't wish to corrupt or offend anybody!



#BDSM-CU now has a permanent reflector online - Join the party!!


What do I need?

To experiment with live video and #BDSM-CU you will need the following equiptment:

A video source and capture card

OR a Quickcam type conferencing kit (these cost less than 70 for a B/W system). Check out Connectix for more details on these wicked little Cams!

CU-SeeME software. Try the freeware version from Cornell or you could try the demo of the commercial CU-seeme software. Be warned, the freeware stuff is a really small download but the commercial stuff is 9Mb!!

An IRC client is required if you want to join in the chat on #BDSM-CU. The best PC clients are mIRC and Pirch. Set this software up to join #BDSM-CU on IRCnet.

If everything goes smoothly you will find yourself confonted with a live image of the person at the other end of the connection, this will look something like the snapshots below.





# Rules

Rules suck, but sometimes you need them to stop things turning to chaos, so here are the basic rules of #BDSM-CU.

1) The # is moderated so when you join you will not be able to say anything. One of the operators (@) will give you voice (+) shortly and you will be able to join in the chat. If you make a nuisance of yourself you will quickly find yourself without voice again.

2) Only persons with "Cams" will get operator status (@). Having a cam does not automatically get you ops, you will have to earn the trust of the other users first.

3) NO TROLLING!! If you come to the # and start trolling you will be kicked and or banned. If you don't know what trolling means, it's saying shit like "Any females here want to message me?". The users on #BDSM-CU are real people, not bits of meat OK!!

4) Be nice to the cow. ShaniMoo is an IRC cow that keeps things smooth on the channel. She is owned by Fetish-Net and her owners on BDSM-CU are [-BuBs-] and Psycloud. If you have any problems relating to the # then you should ask either of those people for help.

5) If you don't have a cam you might be lucky enough to find that one of the other users MAY let you try out the software and connect to them. If this happens you will see thier image but they will not see you. This is a privelige which you have no right to demand so don't pester people into allowing you a connection.



What now?

Get the software, get the hardware, understand the rules then dive in. It's great fun and a great way to meet people!!
