If you get 2.11BSD up and going (which would require a CPU upgrade, it
won't run on the F11, needs split I+D), you can run a *native* IRC client!
One of the guys on #vc has written a minimalist IRC client that compiles
and runs on 2.11BSD on the PDP-11.

AFAIK, there was no TCP/IP stack for the BSDs that will run on the F11.
Anyone know of one?
