IRC Chat Broken
Is anyone else no longer able to access the IRC channel? Even the Java client (http://tech.reboot.pro/livechat/chat.html) isn't able to connect.

Basically, it appears that VoltIRC is either down, gone. or moved, but I haven't found anything to support any of these.

RE: IRC Chat Broken
Looking at http://voltirc.com/ it looks like the domain simply expired... Whether the owner forgot or abandoned it is obviously beyond my knowledge.

RE: IRC Chat Broken
Ah, double checking the whois, I see that now. I'd misread it before. I saw it have just been updated and mistook that as renewed. ^^'

Any plans for an alternate?

RE: IRC Chat Broken
I'm not involved in anything IRC currently, but I'm sure we'll find something :)
QuakeNet is what I've been thinking of right away.

RE: IRC Chat Broken
The IRC can be for any server. We chose one a while back and Louis, a member on TLF happened to be one of the server administrators, so we've stuck to his servers over the past while. He's a lurking member, but has some pretty interesting Javascript stuff that he shares every now and then. Rather than just setting it up for a new server, we'll probably see if we can get in contact with him about a server alternative in case things have changed. No idea what happened with irc.voltirc.com

RE: IRC Chat Broken
The actual IRC still works, it just appears that the web version doesn't at the moment. I was able to connect using my IRC client, but the IP has already been resolved (my irc bouncer stays connected). I'll see what I can do to get the IP or talk to Louis and see what's up.

RE: IRC Chat Broken
Hello, the IRC network is still around. There was an issue at the domain registrar that caused the domain to expire before it was actually supposed to. It was supposed to expire in 2016... but it has since been fixed (a while ago now). Sorry for the inconvenience.

It's also now added to the "More" dropdown menu in the top right. Thanks for the update Louis :)

Bug  RE: IRC Chat Broken
Hello again! So, now the live IRC page is technically broken again. We (the IRC staff) have decided to gear the network towards general chat to support the open source Kiwi IRC project in the hopes that this will bring more live to the network. To fix this, Kobe or AceInfinity will have to change the embedded client from qwebirc to an embed of Kiwi IRC. To do this is simple; for now you can use: https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.voltirc.n...hlifeforum

If anyone needs help or wants a suggestion on a native IRC client to use, feel free to hit me up.

Kobe and/or AceInfinity:
Contact me on IRC and I'll tell you how to create a custom client for the live page instead of just embedding that link.

RE: IRC Chat Broken
Thanks for the update Louis :). Out of curiosity what IRC client do you use? As for the custom client, I would imagine you might be suggesting a node.js alternative or something along those lines?

cheers
