The Lower Third, also knows as the Jupiter Broadcasting Chat Room, is Jupiter Broadcasting's official IRC chat channel. It is prominently featured in the lower third portion during the FauxShow, is used as the video portion of audio-enhanced shows such as Unfilter, SciByte, and Coder Radio, and is occasionally shown and referenced during TechSNAP and The Linux Action Show!.
The channel is hosted on the Geekshed IRC network, and is accessable from irc://irc.geekshed.net/jupiterbroadcasting. Geekshed can be accessed on the standard IRC port 6667 or over SSL on port 6697. The chat room can also be accessed through the browser at http://bit.ly/jupiterchat.
Members of the Jupiter Broadcasting cast are often around and chatting on the chat room with the fans. There are also several others who help out with monitoring and managing the chat room.
- Allan - JB's own Allan Jude. He's a channel administrator and also runs a server on Geekshed. He frequently pops in and out for conversation and on rare occasions to wield the super-ban-hammer.
- ChrisLAS - Chris Fisher's nom-de-IRC, he is always around during shows and often around during the rest of the day.
- Angela - One of Angela Fisher's varied IRC aliases, she's always up for some chatting, as long as she doesn't have to go to work. The chat room surrounds her during the FauxShow.
- bunny - Though she's not an op in the channel, she wields a similar hammer as Allan on the Geekshed network. You should always be nice to bunnies. Also, she likes bacon.
