+# IRC interface for Stack Overflow chat
+
+This is an IRC interface to Stack Overflow chat.
+This program is an IRC server which you run on your local machine, and you connect to it on its port (6668 by default) using any IRC client.
+
+In the spirit of "the simplest thing that can possibly work", there are currently limitations:
+
+- the only connected channel is "Chat Feedback" (77)
+- everything you say is echoed back to you
+- encoded entities like " are not decoded
+- everything is undoubtedly fragile
+
+You must copy `soirc.config.sample` to `soirc.config` and insert your `somusr` cookie value from your browser.
+Then, run `soirc.py` and connect to localhost port 6668 with your IRC client.
