DonationCoder Chat Temporary Problems
« on: December 31, 2012, 03:11:10 PM »
As of 21:09pm (GMT) on 31/12/2012 - The DonationCoder Chat function is having some major problems.  This is due to unexplained netsplitsw on the IRC server we use.

For the time being, you may find it almost impossible to connect, and if you do, you may get disconnected periodically.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Once this has cleared, somebody will update this post to tell you :)

It's the apocalypse! The end of the world as we know it. No more EFNet. )c:

Time to move the channel to freenode.

Efnet/Irc/Chat seems to be working again.  :Thmbsup:

Quite a few of us in there celebrating our local new years events live.  Not exactly as much fun as having a glass of champagne with the person you have been crushing on all year, but if you don't have other plans, hit the Chat button up at the top of this screen (or click here) and join us.

For all those wondering why the majority of EFNet is down, I discovered/reported a security vuln in ratbox and chary, and somebody used it.

More details about the vulnerability here:
