Personalizing

Click on the "Options" button in the toolbar and select a set of nicknames to give yourself. If your nickname is taken, it will use one of your alternate nicknames. Note: If you skip this step, you might be given an unfavorable nickname from the nickname generator like "kurblatz18".

You can hide this chat window at any time by hitting the minus button on the right, or you can hit the "Hide" button in the toolbar. The chat window can also be resized by dragging on its title bar.

While this is getting off the ground, I'd recommend sticking to #peekko.com for instant gratification.

Click on the bottom text input box (the bottom black bar). Enter something to say.
