Right ho.. here we go..

As owner (currently) of the afterdawn chat I am increasingly unhappy with the network it is currently on. Many global notices spamming pr0n and other warez channels across the network and other unpleasant happenings.. Stormchat was never like this..

I don't think brokenirc.net is a suitable home for the #afterdawn channel due to the proximity to illegal and adult content.. seeing as this site and it's chatroom are open to all ages.

I propose we move the room to villageirc, which has given my site, and others sites quality stable and clean service for many years. No warez.. no pr0n.. and no spammers for these warez sources amongst the network administrators abusing their positions when asked to cease by the channel owner..

Anyway.. that's all I wanted to say..

Chat users please comment one way or another.. by the weekend would be nice XD

I definitely agree with moving the channel. I for one am tired of this global notice spamming.

Lets get moving!

I noticed XD

only one interesting thing found with regards to the java applet so far.. it doesn't like 00 (two zeros) in nicks.. it seems to send a null to the applet so you can't use that in a nick :lol:

Jack.. hows your php scripting?.. I had a bit of a bash at it, but it's displaying the file contents instead of launching the applet XD

Will have another go at that little bit tomorrow evening.. and then if it's still no go I'll send you what I have got and see if you can come up with anything.

I'm wondering if I still have the actual code anywhere in my email attachments.. I know I had it about 2 years ago.. hmmmm...

I take it, this is not the chat thread???LOL

I've installed the stuff I think but the guide does need to be rewritten. Irc is 6.35 now. Someone is using my nick garmoon so I'm garbayou there and chatting with myself. I think?

I can't imagine there being another garmoon.....

Let us know if you need help getting in.

actually there is another in the games room that the IRC entered me in at first. I finally made it to the #afterdawn place on the right irc.villageirc.net:6667. I didn't know anyone there, but recognized some of the names. There is actually a Gary Moon out there who is using garmoon as an email addy. Somebody sent me an email at my ISP thinking it was he. My last name is not Moon- the moon part comes from my love of astronomy.

I actually chatted with huru for a minute.

I'm back now.. had a couple of days quiet because there has been a lot going on in the real world :)

I hope everybody is ready, because the old chan will get killed in the next couple of days. I haven't been able to get the java frontend to work.. it would help if I could see the original code.. but it's working and running as designed. Just needs it's page tidying up a little.

The irc guides may be out of date.. but surely people have the brains to google a setup guide for whatever application it is... I would suggest kvirc http://www.kvirc.net/ (freeware and effective) rather than that clunky outmoded (and usually cracked) mirc thing. Just because everybody uses something doesn't make it any good.

The java applet has screwed up.. or the hosting is having a problem.... not sure which as yet.. so people will have to use a proper irc client (see my link earlier.. it's too easy and freeware) or use chatzilla XD

old channel now closed...

No it isn't ...

anyway.. chat fully up and running now .. CoZZ showed up the other day but I didn't get chance to have a proper word with him.. If anybody catches him I need to have a word about something.. soooo.. if one of the friendly mods would care to keep an eye on the channel and pass a message that I need to speak to the buddies guys about changing the applet links it would be mucho appreciated.
