Given that information, and reviewing the X-Chat overview above, use X-Chat to connect to Freenode and join the OpenHatch channel. Pick any nickname you like. :) Once you have joined the channel, say hello!
== Registering a nickname on IRC ==
You can pick a permanent name by "registering a nick". This doesn't mean you can't easily go by other names - instead, it reserves the nick you register so it can be used only by you. To register a nick, type the following command into your client's input line:
/msg NickServ REGISTER password youremail@example.com
Replace "password" with a secure password and "youremail@example.com" with your email. Further details are at [http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#nicksetup the Freenode FAQ pages].
