Internet Reality Check

5pm AEST on Wednesday 12 June 1996

Kurra's Bar - Hotel Kurrajong

Hotel Kurrajong

Internet Reality Check (not to be confused with Internet Relay Chat) is designed so that members of the 'net community can meet and exchange the small amount of very important information which is not suitable for digital transmission. ;-)

This IRC had only about six people in attendance at the Hotel Kurrajong. The change from a Friday night to mid-week, doesn't appear to have met with favour.

However we had a few visitors from the Hotel School, as well.
