Today, I learned how to leave a channel in : You just type /PART

Also, does anybody else like the alternative ? I'm tired of being all alone in at (occasionally, someone will join, message, and part while I'm away).

Checking out a cool open source project, I notice the author's email domain is unfamiliar.
