monome on irc (finally back up!)

  • started up a chat to facilitate the monome rpm album project, but figured i'd open it up to everyone :)

    media.pulsetrain.net:6667
    #monome

    come and say hi!

    - dc

  • bumpity bump for the peepity people

  • http://colloquy.info

    for os x users

  • no nickserv? =(

  • if it ends up being popular, we could establish a more permanent channel on freenode or something.

  • the server is on a dedicated box, so if we want to continue using it, no probs.

    #monome is currently the only active chan, so no, there's no nickserv/chanfix/etc.. i can add those features if you REALLY want, tho :)

    - dc

  • had a few minutes during lunch, so i went ahead and added channel/nick services.

    enjoy :)

    - dc

  • wheeee. thanks!

    i'll be on again when i get home.

  • are people still using irc? last time i was on that was probably 10 years ago!

  • for group chatting, it's still the best, imo.

    join us! :)

    - dc

  • bump for the new kids =)

  • no one is on now :(

  • seems like the server is down or something.

  • sorry guys.. i just relocated to chicago for a new gig, and my servers are still in transit.

    everything will be back up soon :)

    - dc

  • Sadly, the server still seems to be down. Does anyone know the process of establishing a channel on freenode?

    It would be lovely to have a small community of monomers to chat with :-)

  • http://freenode.net/group_registration.shtml

    i would be very interested in a freenode channel.

  • Yeah, I found that page a few days ago; it reads like some super-formal legal contract! Somewhere on that page it links to the form:

    http://freenode.net/group_contact_form.shtml

    The form seems to either require the filler-outer to be previously approved, or for it to reference an approver, and is the first stumbling block. I also wouldn't know what to put in the contact details - I'm guessing it wouldn't be appropriate for me to reference a Philadelphia address in there ;-)

    If anyone has any experience with this process, then they would be welcomed with open arms. Of course if you don't have any experience, you'd still be welcomed with open arms :-)

  • what's the advantage of registering a channel?

  • To be perfectly honest, I have no idea what the advantage would be...

    Regardless of this, it seems that #monome is already registered on freenode:

    23:29 -ChanServ(ChanServ@services.)- #monome is already registered to dinchak.
    23:30 naeu> info #monome
    23:30 -ChanServ(ChanServ@services.)- Information on #monome:
    23:30 -ChanServ(ChanServ@services.)- Founder : dinchak
    23:30 -ChanServ(ChanServ@services.)- Registered : Aug 15 18:27:37 2006 (1 year, 42 weeks, 0 days, 03:03:06 ago)

    23:30 -ChanServ(ChanServ@services.)- Mode lock : +ntc-s
    23:30 -ChanServ(ChanServ@services.)- *** End of Info ***

    However, it appears really empty. So we could just hang about in it for a bit and see what happens :-)

    I'm naeu, see you in #monome on freenode...

  • i think the advantage of registering is just related to moderation.. auto Op statuses and whatnot?

    maybe you ahve to run a bot to do that.

    empty indeed.... save for naeu and me

  • Just a quick update. People seem to be favouring EFNet (I think possibly due to the fact it has a web client). I don't have any emotional attaches to freenode, if any of you do, then now is the time to speak up :-)

    So see you all in #monome on EFNet.

    (If you're wanting connection details, I connect to irc.efnet.org on port 6667.)

    I'm naeu, see you there...

  • would use the irc channel if it gets going, i did look at it recently but didnt seem to be happening : )

  • more people need to be hanging out here...

  • i'm making it a habit to idle in there

    visinin came by the other day.

    tehn too.

  • I just got booted from EFNet for not having an ident or some such nonsense. I tried installing a spoofing server locally (as advised by the helpfiles for my client - colloquy). However I couldn't get it to work.

    As #monome was the only room I frequented on EFNet, I don't think it's worth spending more time trying to get it to work, sorry.

    I've just re-addded #monome on freenode to my autojoin, so I'm guess I'm splitting the party. Sorry :-(

    If anyone has any advice on fixing this, I'd be very happy to listen...

  • 1up for freenode here

  • so, what does one need to do to get to the chat?

  • you need an irc client. for windows, this is something like mIRC, though there are others.

    for mac, unfortunately the best option i know of is Colloquy, which is mediocre at best.

    if you're unix savvy, something like BitchX is a good option.

    once you've got an irc client up, you'll want to connect to efnet and/or freenode, and then type "/join #monome"
