+# IRC Art
+
+The term "IRC Art" is used to refer to text based visual art found on IRC. The art found on IRC has evolved past using just ASCII charcters. IRC clients today understand a number of special formatting characters. These characters allow IRC software to send and receive colors and formatting codes such as bold, italics, underline and others. This allows more possibilites now for creating ASCII/ANSI art for IRC. While it is possible to have support for 99 or even 256 colors, most art made for IRC follows the 16 color standard.

+
+### Setup
+In order to properly execute playing art in an IRC channel, it is generally agreed that you want to pump the art as quickly as possible. That means, any client or server side throttling can make pumping large art heavily delayed or interrepted. You also want to make sure you have full support for viewing UTF-8 unicode characters.
+
+#### Linux
+Execute the following commands:
+```
+echo "LANG=en_US.UTF-8" > /etc/locale.conf
+echo "en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8" > /etc/locale.gen
+locale-gen
+```
+
+Place the following lines in your ~/.bashrc file:
+```
+export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
+export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
+export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8
+```
+
+Now just run `source ~/.bashrc` to make the changes take affect.
+
+If you are using [GNU screen](https://www.gnu.org/software/screen/), make sure that `defutf8 on` is in your ~/.screenrc file.
