Glad you got in, I'll be around later this weekend. See ya there.
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The irc guides may be out of date..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...
This link is broken http://www.kvirc.net/
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.
I misspoke. The site comes up but I can't download the program. After searching how to install it, I got lost immediately. So I guess this way is out. And I'm not paying $20 for mIRC.
Mooney....as much as you are probably going to use IRC you could probably just use Chatzilla for the time being. It's a addon for firefox.
What is the problem with kvirc??.. I just downloaded and installed it on a repair xp lappy in minutes here... no problems. no fuss.. i use it all the time on xp when I'm away from home, I have built a portable version on a flash drive.
Just download the installer xxx.exe and double click like any other piece of windows crap.. then don't even bother configuring it.. I never do..
remember these commands
easy as that.. quick and dirty irc connectivity.
Thanks scott and paula
back up after a large gap... (people are there 24/7 until they become owners.. then they vanish) no bloody consoles tho.. unless it's sensible not the "wtf du i du w psp 4 play dl gams?" that gets klined instantly.. hahahahaha.. we can help with the more technical aspects tho like patching wii isos and stuff like that.. even tho we don't own one or anything.. a procedure is a process that can be understood.
the network is being strange.. connection problems can be solved (timeout.. only happens to windoze clients) by naming the server.. seems loopy is up. /server loopy.villageirc etc....
IRC is on my desktop which has some dodgy RAM in it, so combined with finding a house for uni and general preparations, I don't have a lot of time at the moment - sorry P. I will pop by soon though, should probably get a client installed on the laptop!
stick kvirc on a stick.. simples
hey paula and ripper
hey hey .. well it's back up in the usual place.. and also has a new addon..
note to ~firstname.lastname@example.org
you have been noted .. your ip has been logged.. further attempts to hack the channel will be k-lined and you will be blocked from the entire village irc network and reported to your isp ..
wasting your time anyway.. I've been at this irc lark for years and years.. it's locked down solid.
Only reason your IP isn't listed is because I'm nice.. your host mask doesn't hide you from netops
wishing all the irc people a very happy xmas
same to you.
cheers.. it looks like Canada here.. snow fell last week.. and it's still on the ground 8 days later
Merry Christmas one & all!
Bit late ... hope ya'll had a great X-mass this year .. and for the upcomming days : dont blow ya fingers of with them fireworksies Happy new years to you lot !!!
greets and love
