I'm on the VoIP channel quite a bit lately, which is also on freenode.... So, for what its worth, if anyone is interested, I'm reviving the freenode IRC channel which was made before the quakenet one. server: irc.freenode.org channel: #ipodtouchfans For those of you that are regularly on the go and want to join us from your iPod Touch / iPhone; you can install Colloquy (yes, I've heard about it turn red after a while, and sorry, I can't fix it). Configuration information are as follows: Host Name: irc.freenode.org Port: 6667 Uses SSL: (OFF) [||||| O ] Fill out the identity section, and leave Authentication section blank. Join Rooms: #ipodtouchfans If you have black text area for Colloquy, please get this fix here: http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2060 Edit: Thanks to Noisey for this awesome guide!!!: I've also added a web-link for those that don't want to install anything (though, you lack a lot of customization and miss out a lot of fun!): http://misc.chiisana.net/iPodTouchFansIRC/ You will need Java for your browser to run the web chat though... If it doesn't work, you can get it here: http://sun.java.com Due to popular request, here's the guide on how to cloak your IP address on freenode: To get ip cloaking you need to take these steps: 1) Register two nicks with nickserv; you can register the nick you're currently on using this command: Code: /msg nickserv register <password> 2) Set an email to your primary nick: Code: /msg nickserv set hide email on /msg nickserv set email <your-email-address> 3) Link the secondary nick with your primary nick, go on your second nick and use this command: Code: /msg nickserv link <primary_nick> <primary_nick_password> 4) Finally, join #freenode and ask if your account can have host cloak enabled, you can join using this command: Code: /join #freenode Please note: 1) This is not a moderator's hang out... well, I am there as "Alfarin", but I'm not there to moderate. So if you want to report posts, feel free to do so there, but it may not be as effective as clicking the report icon like this: Please Register or Log in to view images near the post that are problematic. 2) Have some fun Please Register or Log in to view images If you have a trivia bot or anything, feel free to bring it in! Don't need to ask me for permission. It's easier to apologize later than to ask permission up front. Just make sure it doesn't spam the channel and get everyone angry. If people complain, turn it off temporarily until we can sit down and discuss it as a group Please Register or Log in to view images Cheers!
