    It's not down, that's one thing that's for sure as I'm in there. However, for some reason some people can't seem to be able to connect and get the same error message as you.

    Try irc2.gbatemp.net or 91.121.42.111

    I had the same problem earlier today (probably still do for that matter) but have been on for 5 hours now.

    Fasts method seems to work guys use that for now, Ace couldn't connect either but he tried the ip version and it worked.

    Check for plugin updates for Firefox. I recently had one for Chatzilla......like a couple days ago. Maybe that's what's up?

    Also, it's working fine for me.

    Ok, I just tried to get on irc using the java applet and I got this error message:
    Error : Closing Link: [173.81.86.165] (Throttled: Reconnecting too fast) -Email costello@gbatemp.net for more information.

    What's going on with the irc?

    Im not sure if you can configure the server options with the Java app (I haven't tried). But using the IP that Fast suggested seems to work for everyone. I suggest you download mirc and set it up using the guide below.

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?dynamic=58

    What is critical and you must not forget is on the fourth step, instead of entering irc.gbatemp.net you enter 91.121.42.111 instead.

    Hope you can get on now.

    connect to irc2.gbatemp.net:5190 through a client, rather than the java applet.
