Port 6667 is now accepting connections again. Apologies for the issue — it was a firewall change on our host’s part. All fixed!
Currently, port 6667 of the IRC server is not accepting connections. Support has been contacted. Meanwhile, please use 6661-6666, 6668-6669.
Seems as though everything is working properly, as I head off to the cottage for the next day or so. Good chatting to you all!
Uh, so I think we’re back up! Of course, right after I post something saying be patient, etc, etc. Hopefully it sticks.
Latest word from the host: Hope to have services restored in the next ~2 hours or less. Keep your fingers crossed, gang.
No news from the IRC host in the last 6h as we approach 24 hours of instability/downtime. I’m frustrated too. Will post news as warranted.
The good news: The website seems to be working just fine. The bad news: The IRC server is not. IRC host is working with their data center.
IRC server issues seem to have gotten worse. Assuming this is dark before the dawn. On that note, I’m heading to bed — info in the AM!
IRC host has fixed the hardware issue, working on the network slowness now. Thanks for your patience, guys.
IRC server status: Still laggy, due to hardware issues at the host. Web server status: Still broken, no word from host as of yet.
