#dosgames on IRC has been re-opened!

Post by nastypoisonspikes » Thu Sep 23, 2004 7:43 am

Yes, the channel you have all been waiting for is finally here. Please join #dosgames on irc.slashnet.org. For the uninformed, you will need an IRC client to connect (although I encourage the DGN admins to add java clients to their sites), my recommendation would be mIRC, which is shareware but fully fuctionable. I will write an introduction to IRC for newbies later, unless anyone else wants to do it for me.

So connect and start chatting!

And, for those of you who are un-IRC savvy and/or simply can't access the necessary ports on your computer because of a firewall or something, our host has provided an excellent Java client for our use. http://slashnet.org/java.php :)

eMule is teh sukc. Use mIRC.

Anyways, I require everyone to be present on IRC between the hours of 7-10pm GMT-5. You are only exempted if you dive in ghetto country not near my timezone. (IE: You damn aussies.)

Else you end up on my bad list.

I went there 4 times. The first 3 times only saw only a bot. :rolleyes: Yesterday, there was no more bot but only 1 other person (At last found someone. :D ).

Wally, maybe we could chat there some time when you're free. At least the time difference between us is just 2 - 3 hours. ;)

I'm not a bloody robot, you people can't expect me to be there 24 hours. If you want to help the channel to grow, idle for a while until someone else joins the channel whom you can chat to.

You can probably still get on using the web/java interface:

Although then again, you might not be able to. :shifty:

Is it down?

I tried to join now and I ended up creating my own channel. (Yes, I AM on slashnet). Haven't found anyone there in a long time anyway.
