I'm sick of IRC not loading up. The one time I try to get into chat in over a month and it doesn't work.

There's a reason I have almost given up on it.


Because it's a problem a lot. I don't know how it is for others but I know there have been problems in the past as well.


If you can make an adjustment, it would be very appreciated. Especially with the playoffs getting underway in less than two weeks.

I actually liked the chat room devilsrule had one night; I wouldn't mind trying that one on a more permanent basis. Nobody seems to like the PHP one (and I can only use it through ie).

I tried using IRC tonight through IE and it wouldn't even load.

It actually loaded up on my AOL but for some reason, it won't connect. Weird.


Is DR's chat any easier accessing???

DR33's chat was ok, but it dropped a lot of people. If anyone can let me know about a free chat service that is better then what I Just put up let me know.

Please stop your griping and assuming it is something that DM can alleviate with the press of a button...dew you even know what IRC stands for? Let me tell you...Internet Relay Chat...it is not exclusive to this forum...it is a network of servers that relay packets of information for the user, reassembles those packets and then you see what you see...I am not going to explain what a packet it...try Google for that so before you gripe why don't you go to the Internet and dew some research on IRC. There are various networks out there for IRC...DalNet, EFNet, UnderNet, etc. I think you get the picture. There has been great rise of DoS attacks on all IRC servers regardless of the network. So you don't have to strain, DoS stands for Denial of Service...an exhorbitant amount of packets are sent to servers overloading them, slowing them down and eventually the host of the server will take it offline...no server no connection...the IRC server hosts dew this for free...that is why there is no cost to chat...in the host's eyes there is no need to have their entire network collapse because of a DoS attack on one of their servers...just so you know...the attacks are caused by hackers in their teens and twenties so if you wanna bitch go bitch to them...no matter what IRC server DM uses it will have the same problem...if you want to use some closed chat application then be my guest but I am sure you will find something to bitch about that too :angry:

Know what I am sick of? People complaining about stuff when they don't know how something works...next time try asking what the problem is rather than tell us how sick you are :angry:

Does this chat still need adjusting or should we just use the PHP one? I can't use the mIRC one directly through AOL anymore. I have to use ie which would be okay except ie isn't working for me tonight for the first time that I can remember :P .

Come to think of it I can't use PHP through AOL either.

I have similar problems Has. I tried the new IRC thru both Explorer and AOL. It just doesn't work for whatever reason. The name I put in shows up but the page doesn't open all the way.

PHP works better for me.

I can get into chat via mIRC just fine...maybe the server is still being tweaked...if the DDos came from an AOL user then they may have banned AOL access...not sure...DM will have to check since he is founder...anyway it is working just peachy here Hasan :)
