If your browser is properly configured to handle "irc" URLs you can click here:

irc://irc.freenode.net/linuxmce

Most IRC clients allow you to connect manually, simply type the following:

/server irc.freenode.net

Change your nick to your liking (as long as nobody else is using it):

/nick what_ever_nick_you_want

Then join our channel:

/join #linuxmce

Now you should be dropped right into the channel.
