This reveals (or reminds) fun things like how Warner Bros used to host an official IRC server for fans of their shows and 360" panoramas of the sets in Quicktime VR.

@polychrome irc.warnerbros.com #babcom! I remember it well! It was one of my first homes on the internet! It didn't last long though, Warner Brothers shut it down when B5 stopped being a syndicated show and went to TNT. The survivors went to another server for a while, I lost touch soon after.

Paramount had an IRC server too for Star Trek. They even had had an officially-sanctioned roleplaying group, I think called A Call to Duty.

@srol @polychrome I also spent so much time here! Also on one called the lurker's guide and WB's IRC server for B5.
