    TPU had one at times previous to now. Usually it was really busy for a couple of days then the attendance dropped off so the channels were closed.

    That isn't to say there aren't members who still use IRC, just that they aren't hosted by TPU any longer;)

    You will probably have more luck in one of those gaming chatrooms, the BF2 and Minecraft ones were reasonably non-empty

    i also would join an unofficial TPU channel!

    edit: gaming chatrooms do not have the right focus imo :p

    IRC is great for a lot of things.

    Idling is cool and all but to keep the chat component of it alive, there would need to be people who are willing to talk about things (doesn't even need to be TPU related) on end.
