-Where is the best place to go to find other SubGenii and mutants? ​In addition to the [[ScrubGenius]] group, there are two other places to go that are hotbeds of SubGenius activity:+Where is the best place to go to find other SubGenii and mutants? ​
  
-[[ScrubGenius]],​ [[alt.slack]] and [[alt.binaries.slack]]:​ The Sacred Usenet Newsgroups 
  
-   * For many years, the best place to go to on Usenet was the newsgroup //​alt.slack//​. From the great Internet explosion of 1994 until the Conspiracy finally shut down much of Usenet in 2008, you could go to //​alt.slack//​ and be able to meet everyone in the Church – from high-profile names like [[Rev. Ivan Stang]], to the Internet SubGenius superstars who've promoted the Church online…along with a great many cross-posters from other newsgroups, trolls, and outright kooks who come to alt.slack ​simply to spread noise or try to get attention for themselves. In late 2009, the new [[ScrubGenius]] group was created, and most of the regular denizens of alt.slack migrated there.\\ You can get SubGenius multimedia files, including sound files, filthy pictures, and other useful utilities, by heading over to //alt.binaries.slack//. All of the files posted to this newsgroup are in uuencoded format, and you'll need a uuencode/​uudecode program to translate them into a workable form. (Netscrape and Microsoft Internet Exploiter will decode the binaries files automatically for you, but we recommend you use a newsgroup reader program instead, such as Free Agent for PCs or YA Newswatcher for Macintosh.) SubGenii uses a number of Web-based file storage systems such as Photobucket. However, many of the images produced by SubGenii are…ahem…**adults only!** Rather than place them on a Web-based file server where they would be subject to deletion, these naughty sounds and pictures are still delivered to the Interwebs regularly through the newsgroup //​alt.binaries.slack//​.\\ On March 12, 2005, the newsgroup //​alt.binaries.multimedia.slack//​ was created to expand the capability of the Church to make its media available online. Specifically,​ this newsgroup exists for folks to post large binaries, CDs, DVDs, and other sizable files that would otherwise overwhelm the newsgroup //​alt.binaries.slack//​.+[[ScrubGenius]]

-   * As the latest hot "​social media" have appeared and become Internet fads, the Church of the SubGenius has infiltrated each and every one. When MySpace became the Next Big Thing, we were there. Likewise with //[[Second Life]]// and Twitter. At this time, the most popular Web-based "​networking"​ site for the Church of the SubGenius is Facebook, where there are //many// online Clenches and factions.

    * Since the fall of 1996, the Church of the SubGenius has held weekly online Devivals on Internet Relay Chat, meeting every Sunday evening at 9 PM Dallas time (10 PM Eastern, 7 PM Pacific). This Web link to the IRC Devivals includes a Java applet to hook your browser directly into IRC. Unlike those other Java-based chat rooms, our chat sessions can be accesed by ANYONE who can get onto IRC, whether your browser uses Java or not. The IRC Devivals have been a smashing success, and a number of the greatest celebrities in our Church have become regular participants each week. Such luminaries as [[Popess Lilith von Fraumench]],​ Dr. [[Onan Canobite]], [[Pastor Craig]], [[Rev. Ivan Stang]], [[Asquire]],​ [[Sister Decadence]],​ [[Jesus Devilacqua]] and [[Reverend Magdalen]], [[Papa Joe Mama]], and many others have made the SubGenius IRC devivals an experience that has to be seen by ALL Yetikind! This is your chance to meet everyone who's anyone in the Church of the SubGenius, LIVE, every Sunday evening! The most common IRC channels for SubGenii are //#​subgenius//​ and //#slack//. Church services are held every Sunday night at 10 PM Eastern Standard Time (9 PM Dallas Time), on Taphouse at **irc.taphouse.org**.    * Since the fall of 1996, the Church of the SubGenius has held weekly online Devivals on Internet Relay Chat, meeting every Sunday evening at 9 PM Dallas time (10 PM Eastern, 7 PM Pacific).
