IRC channel moved!

Recommended Posts

FYI to everyone here who joins us in IRC (or who has always wanted to) - we are no longer using newnet.net as our main contact point. This is due to a number of stability and other issues over a number of months, and it seems like a good time to move. We've listened to folks' suggestions and are now on freenode in channel ##atari. Yes, 2 hashes for the channel name, per freenode's guidelines. So, you have at least a couple ways to get there, and I bet Sloopy will follow up with more:

 

Connect your favorite IRC client to chat.freenode.net and join channel ##atari.

Telnet to irc.atarichat.net, port 800. This is the same as before, and it will now put you in the freenode channel.

 

Hope to see all you regs and some new folks there soon! Any questions, feel free to send me a PM.

 

thanks

James

freenode is a predefined server in xchat standard config, so just have to connect to freenode and then /join ##Atari...

Yeah, same with many IRC clients. In MIRC, for example, it's as easy as selecting from the menu as well or simply typing "/server freenode" in your first window to connect (and of course add ##Atari to your auto-join list :)). Thanks sloop.

Can this IRC also be reached through telnet? I like to get there with ICE-T on my Atari 8bit.

 

I never saw the telnet gateway posted in public before (which doesn't mean it never was) but I PM-ed you the url.

@fox-1 thanks a lot!

 

I already found it. It is the known url, but the portnumber was added to it.

 

Thanks again!

So, for telnet, you have two options now:

 

#1: telnet://irc.atarichat.net:800

This one is for anyone running a VT100-capable terminal (Ice-T falls into that category).

 

#2: telnet://irc.atarichat.net:400

This is a simple, ascii-only interface to the same channel, for use with a wider array of terminals. Still being tested, so let me know if you see any issues.

 

Or the web interface is can be gotten to at http://urql.com/[email protected].

And, of course, the main IRC is irc://chat.freenode.net.

Necro'ing this thread to mention that I've created a discord server for Atari 8-Bit chat here https://discord.gg/uEzw3FW It might be a bit more familiar to the younger crowd, to the oldies it will feel like a pretty irc.

Looks like freenode ##atari has gone kaput... It booted me while I was on vacation and now it appears it's empty besides a couple people. Did everyone move over to the Discord?

freenode went to shit and everyone is on libera - have been for months now.  Thought you were over there?  Signal to noise ratio has been a bit better too, some would say.

I messed up. Not Freenode, Libera Chat. My bad.

 

Looking at one thing, typing another...
