Probably because a lot of the people here came from Delphi, and have logins at both places, so we just kept the Delphi chat around to keep it around (and because it was easy).

It is incredibly doubtful that we will run an IRC server on the server that the site runs on, but that doesn't mean we won't change the unofficial chat going forward.

Well I've been pushing to setup chat here but TPTB don't seem to want to do anything.

I've setup a channel, #maximumpc, on the WyldRyde network. That's irc.wyldryde.org for your IRC client, port 6667 or 16667/6697 for SSL.

It's a nice small network. Only 10 servers and average around 250-300 users in 100+ channels at most times.

Apparently there's also a #maximumpc over on freenode that colby hangs out at.

well delphi chat is really a non-option considering you have to go register over there and that's just plain silly.

I just blew #maximumpc on wyldryde out of the water so lets just call #maximumpc on freenode the IRC alternative.

Get yer asses in there!

SERVER: irc.freenode.net
PORT: 6667
CHANNEL: #maximumpc

And as always forum rules apply in chat too!

-- Chat clients --
BitchX - Windows, macOS, Linux, BSD
chatzilla - Windows, macOS, Linux, BSD
mIRC - Windows
Xchat - Windows, Linux, BSD
