Hey everyone Technology forum aficionados and other interested parties,

I got an IRC chatroom set up for createblog on my server. We used to have one back in the day and it was kind of fun, so I thought I'd try to get it going again. So grab an IRC client and get chattin'! Here's the info:

Server: irc.foonetic.net
Channel: #createblog

If you need directions for connecting, read the thread or just ask. Or read this post.



Also, NickServ is running on the server, so feel free to register your nick.

OMG Thanks, I knew that something was missing here.

The AIM live chat is...idk..
I dont use AIM
Maccabee
I actually have no clue what that is?

Damn. I suggested this in some topic once. It got shot down immediately.

But we needed this. I'm joining now.

Edit:

I'm getting the same thing.
brooklyneast05
i don't get it. what's the difference between this group chat and what we already have?
Deospeon
Its best if we change the server to Dejatoons or LucidChat.
Because seriously, I'm having problems in connecting to your server.

Not everyone uses AIM.
So IRC is best for Chats.

but if you have to download a client isn't it the same thing almost _unsure.gif

Well.. AIM is something that slows down my computer (idk why)
I use Neebly as my IRC Client (bye bye mIRC).
Neebly is free

You don't have to download a client. There are tons of Java based online IRC clients, but they're usually pretty laggy.

It's really just going to split up into two chats. shrug.gif Most AIM cbcers probably won't even touch that.

Exactly. Just download aim instead.

You have to download an AIM client, too.

Anyway, this isn't a replacement for CBC -- this is just something for CB's nerds to do in their free time. The IRC channel was fun, back when we had it. Plus IRC is way older than AIM, so it has a legacy on the Internet that nerds enjoy.

Ooh, see what I did there?

But seriously, the reason I put this in Technology was to alert the techno-nerds, not the whole of CB, since it's just an unofficial IRC channel for CB, like the old one.

The only way this is going to fly is if someone hosts a Java client...

People, just download ChatZilla. It's a FF addon, and it's an irc client! Woo!

Are you contacting it on the right port (6669)?
Do you have SSL enabled?
Maccabee
This is what im doing

/server ppartment.homeip.net
enter
/join #createblog
enter

Not sure how to enable ssl on my client. Ill go look.
Maccabee
Darn. I just downloaded neebly.

You have to specify the port number. Try /server ppartment.homeip.net 6669.
Maccabee
I tried that already. No luck. Its probably cause I looked in all the settings but couldnt find anything about ssl.
Deospeon
try this now

/server irc.dejatoons.net
enter
/join #CreateBlog

or simply just go on

What client are you using?
mipadi
Okay, I opened up a port for non-SSL traffic. Here's the info:

Server: ppartment.homeip.net, port 6667 (standard port, so you shouldn't need to specify it)
Channel: #createblog
Maccabee
Woohoo! It works!
Edit:Someone get on!
Maccabee
Step by step instructions on how to get into the IRC chat:

1. Download a IRC client. This is kinda like a IM Program. I installed Neebly.

2. Once you install a client you open it up and in the line where you type, enter
/server ppartment.homeip.net and hit enter.
Once you have connected enter, /join #createblog and hit enter again.

You should be in!

I'll stick with Meebo so I won't have to download Aim.

IRC is internet relay chat. It's a much older system, and has very few bugs. There are no friends lists, you can change your name whenever you want, and it's a billion times better.

No registration, lighter client, better chat.

And you can't use IRC on meebo.

Just tried it. I like IRC wayyyy better than AIM.

This is nifty, Michael. Thanks for setting it up. I miss old IRC chating in general.
Deospeon
Ok, You guys should be able to enter our channel with no hassle.

Those who dont want to risk the thing with downloading IRC Clients, can just
go to http://fantasycore.heliohost.org/tubes.php
You can enter ppartment.homeip.net from there.

k i has IRC now
Maccabee
Its not connecting?

Okay, I want to get this IRC thing going again.

I'm pretty bored at work and sometimes in the evening, so I'm starting up the CB IRC channel again. Unfortunately, my former roommate doesn't have IRC up and running, so I found a new server to host. The server is:

irc.foonetic.net (on all the usual ports)

Server info is available at foonetic.net. The channel is

#createblog (duh)

foonetic runs all the usual services (NickServ, ChanServ, etc.). More info is available here and here. If you get on and know at least a bit about IRC, I'll give you op status.

Questions? Just ask in this thread, someone'll help you out.

I am in, and only me and mipadi are here.


NEED MORE PEOPLE
Maccabee
Could someone make instructions. Im using a chatzilla.
