Okay, We’re Going to Give It The Ole Middle Age Try

IRC, tonight, 7 PM Central.  I may be sorta in and out of it, and I don’t know how long I’ll want to go.

Freenode network, channel #countenanceblog.  Freenode has an online chat portal.  You’ll just enter the screen name you want to use, #countenanceblog (including the hashtag) as the channel, skip the auth-to-services box, then confirm your subhumanity.  Boom, you’re there.  If you have an IRC client and know how to use it, all the better.  I can only provide help on what I use, mIRC, and even at that, it has been a very long time, so my mIRC proficiency is rusty.

However, my chatroom snark skills, probably better than ever.

We’re up and running if anybody wants to give it a try.

It is 18:31 Pacific. I tried, but found no one home.

Must have gone to the wrong place. We had some bugs and glitches, as it was.

I saw a screen full of traffic, then it cleared, showed it was on #countenance, but I was there alone.

It’s just as well. We’re going to switch to a different network anyway, Freenode was a PITA.

Thanks. I’ll keep an eye out.

Also, we were using #countenanceblog for the channel name.

Rizon is pretty stable. I left a bot in there overnight. He didn’t ping out once.

@lewis33: New server on irc.rizon.net. Channel name the same:

#countenanceblog

Web interface at: https://qchat.rizon.net/

Let me know what time Saturday night. I should be able to make it.

Highly unlikely I can do Saturday night, but I have no problem with everyone else going there to chat at any time. It’s just that I won’t call it an official Watering Hole episode unless I’m there and fete it that way, and when I’m there, mIRC logs the chat. I know that web based IRC clients don’t do logging.

Sounds good, boss. Lewis mentioned something about Saturday night. Thought we could have an informal gathering there where we wouldn’t be logging and wouldn’t have to watch our language.

I didn’t see you come in. Wondered why you didn’t get opped. Looks like you were on the web interface.

I just tested the web interface.

I believe you can actually log in your nick through the web interface, but I’ve never tested it.

Rizon’s web interface does have the ability to sign in your nick with chanserv if one has already registered one’s nick with chanserv. I don’t think that’s going to be an issue for anyone but the two of us.
