Chat Server Update
Posted 03 May 2002 - 02:44 PM
I was not happy with the results.
At first people could not get into the chat do to a currupt .cab file.
After fixing that problem people were able to get in, however many people were not happy they could not use their name on the server (for example Mark, and Rage) as these handles belonged to someone else on the IRC network we were connected to.
I have moved our IRC server off of dal.net and have moved it to another (and much smaller) IRC provider.
Now people should not have any problem going into the chat with names like Mark or Rage etc.
While not officially open yet, those who want to check out our IRC chat can visit http://chat.dbstalk.com
Be warned this Java application may not run on all browsers, however you can use any IRC Client (such as MIRC and PIRCH) to get into our chat. Our chat server and channel name are listed on the above listed Chat page for those who wish to use their own IRC software.
We have some big news coming on Monday that is sure to cause some noise, our chat will be open on this day.

To register your screenname on the IRC loginto the chat
the type /msg nickserv register password youremail.com
place a password you want to use for password and your email address where you see youremail.com
Next time you logon to the chat you will get a message saying you have 60 seconds to identify yourself or your username will be changed. You will need to identify yourself. (The instructions will be on the screen) but basicly you send a message like the one shown below.
/msg nickserv identify password
After you do that you will be you and no one else can be you.
