your thoughts on the new IRC chat and the fact that it now has SSL encryption and didn't tell us that they were going to do this in the first place

I was really pissed off when I discovered last night, IRC has been completely rewritten from scratch with an HTTPS certificate. I'm gonna miss the old IRC chat and my custom color pallet, you cant even change the colors anymore. What the hell EsperNet, just what the hell. Why did you have to do this and ruin such an awesome chatroom service that we have been using for so many years? This is just so sad. thanks to these horrible changes, I will no longer be hosting any OHBs, for good. RIP IRC. I'm gonna miss you so much and will never see it the same way again:-(
That concludes this little rant.

Just use a normal IRC client, and you can have any colors you want. ~~Webchats are poop anyway~~

oh hey djmax actually you can provide your own custom stylesheet to the new esper default web client in advanced settings. that's more powerful, not less.

I found an older version of LimeChat that will work on my version of OSX, I'm still trying to figure it out. I'm having trouble connecting to #botb.
edit, on second thought, LimeChat is confusing as hell. EsperNet IRC is not even included.

1. add a network (esper)
2. connect
3. /join #botb

if you can make a bowl of cereal, you can set up an irc client

you guys should migrate to ICQ
IRC is stone-age tech for grognards dude

I knew hardcore irc enthusiasts exists. But i didn't know it was possible to be one AND only have ever experienced irc in the worst way possible.

Meanwhile I recently changed over to weechat from irssi... I literally have no idea about the webchat thing, and only a vague one on graphical clients. Text stuff all the way, and preferably on a linux server.

I'm neutral to the new client at the moment... mainly because I haven't used the color feature that much. However, I understand if some of the fanciness has been lost... speaking of which, I used to use Mibbit when I initially joined the IRC channels, starting with #mod_shrine back in 2009.
