    IRC server move
    Immediate change
    To all of us IRC lovers, please note that the GBAtemp IRC server is moving (being hosted on another computer). So temporarily, the current address - irc.gbatemp.net - might not work for you. If you can't wait, you may use this address to connect, temporarily:

    irc2.gbatemp.net:5190
    or
    91.121.42.111:5190


    The main channel is #gbatemp.net
    Thanks for your understanding!
    The staff~

    I don't understand. What is it 'first' posters get out of doing that? It confounds me to no end. Are you sitting there, biting your lip, jizzing in your pants as you hit the 'reply' button or what?

    On-topic, I have never understood why GBAtemp hosts its own IRC server. I think it's neato, but yeah, much like 'first' posters, don't get it.

    Well hosting your own server lets you run it as you see fit [​IMG]

    From Where???
    i idle on it 24/7 with norm and smiths in #acekard. i find the very useful. when i have a problem i can contact a gbatemp admin and i can get it solved quickly. you don't get that kind of help on a large irc network. i also find the server connection speeds much faster than a large network, ping time is always really low. it is an ideal way to chat with gbatemp members, flash kit hobbyist, etc.

    IRC is a chatroom (stands for "internet relay chat" I believe). This one in particular is the one used for GBAtemp-related chats (obviously). It is a good place to just talk about random things if you behave! [​IMG]

    Also, I've not been logging into IRC as much due to being too busy with a new job. Real life > internetz

    You do not want to recite U2 lyrics in the gbatemp irc channel, it will get you banned instantly.

    Same here. I'm not ALWAYS online but i'm on #acekard most of the time.

    Question: what actually happened to the server?
