4         BlenderBIM would not be possible without dedicated open-source
5         developers, volunteers, and industry members. You can be part of this
6         amazing community too! Please share BlenderBIM with your

15             IRC is a free, online, real-time chatroom. It is a great way to
16             ask questions and get an instant reply. If you send a message to
17             <code>Moult</code>, he can give you a demo of BlenderBIM online.
18         </p>
19         <p>
20             People are online at different timezones, so it's normal not to
21             get a reply straight away, but stick around, or leave your email
22             address so that somebody can reply to you later!
