Title: IBRSC IRC Channel! (http://chat.ibrsc.org/)
Post by: Madmage on Dec 11, 08, 07:44:58 am CST
Why I've never done it before, I will never know...

Announcing The IBRSC IRC channel!

server: irc.ibrsc.org
channel: #ibrsc

For now you'll need an IRC client, I plan on putting a web-based interface on the main IBRSC.ORG page.


*** Updated: there is a web-based client here: http://chat.ibrsc.org/


Do you need an IRC client?  If you're using Mozilla Firefox, you can install the chatzilla addon, and you're golden.
OR you can grab a standalone client.. there are a ton to choose from. Here's one example:

couldn't connect :(

your work is probably blocking outbound port 6667.   let me hasten the install of the web-based client :)

hooboy. what an idiot.  i forgot to add a dns record for 'irc.drokk.org' which 'irc.ibrsc.org' points to temporarily...  sigh.  its been a long day.

try it with the server as 'drokk.org' for now.

or go here: http://chat.ibrsc.org/

Of course, you would do this about a month after I delete my ICQ. I hadn't used it in over a year and felt I wasn't going to use it ever again.  Blah.

:D

just keep in mind that most companies block IRC. If it doesn't connect, try the web client instead.

OK, i tore out that applet and replaced it with a different one. works now, but it wont auto-join the ibrsc channel, so you'll need to do "/j #ibrsc" after login.  Oh, and /nick newname yerself too
