I frankly don't care about your personal lives (no offense ;-), but an
XMPP (Jabber) server would be preferable to IRC.  There are several open
server implementations: jabberd14, jabberd2, and Openfire (formerly
Wildfire), for starters.


In addition to a web-based chat interface, accessible without installing
any software, people can connect via a number of messenger programs that
they may already use (Gaim, Trillian, Spark, Adium, Google Talk, etc.).
