We're fed up with IRC servers breaking.. first DALnet, then Craplink. So we decided to do something about it. We are happy to announce that the CIC's server is now an IRC server!
Not only is it a home for the CIC's own channel, #WingNut, but it is a community server. Need a place for your fan project crew or Crius.net friends to meet and discuss things in real time? Just connect, join the channel that you want, and talk to ChanServ about registering it in your name.
We offer three wonderful ways for you to join in the chatting fun:
1. If you have a fairly recent IRC client installed, click here and hopefully you'll find yourself in #WingNut within moments.
2. If number 1 didn't work, try plugging the settings in to your IRC client manually. Server name: irc.wcnews.com
3. No IRC client handy? Use our JavaClient! Just click here and our Java client will drop you in #WingNut.
Problems? Let us know and we'll try to help. Don't forget to include details of any error message that you get and what IRC client you are using.
Enjoy this new CIC feature, and feel free to register your nicks and set up your own channels through NickServ and ChanServ.
