OP here. Been in #sushigirl and lurking #lainchan, and #lainchan is sort of programming? People are talking about C as I type this, but it fluctuates between unbearable garbage that I wanted to get away from and conversation I wish I was programming-savvy to be a part of. It's definitely an odd channel that doesn't really have a solid cultural place but is definitely between 4chan and 8gag, but it's not terrible.
The sushis in #sushigirl kind of make me feel old even though I believe there isn't too much of an age difference (only a few years), some school talk mostly, but it's usually pleasant when it isn't dead.>>250
Jeez. I can see why you don't actively look; I don't think I've been in that many chatrooms at once ever in my life.
