I was wondering if NECO or any of the cougar sites had an IRC channel. If so could you please post the channel/server.

No we don't... all we have is the "chat" that nobody goes to.

At one time we did, but the software we where using had a license that required that the server "renew" the license every 30 days. The company pulled the plug without warning and the software locked itself down after trying to renew the first time. I was pissed! I have my eye on some more IRC server software and will be buying it with left-over CougarFest funds is money allows.

Internet Relay Chat.


Its a form of communication, but has tons of other functionality.
To connect to an IRC channel you need some sort of client.
I use http://www.mirc.com with an acidmax plugin.

I tried it and configuration is a PITA and their GUI sucks! It was orginally designed for UNIX servers and the ports to W2K are terrible. The software that I bought was designed on W2K and is awesome.

i was wondering fastcougar, if you could do something about the idle timeout, and the disallowed nick changes. For all of us who use a seperate IRC client.

Ahhh gotcha... I forgot that its a Windows server.. (I didn't even know Undernet made a windows port..)
Oh well, nonetheless.. it functions and I'm happy with it :) .. wanna change my name on NECO? :)

Yes, I agree.. please do!

But for the time being, I cheat :) .. I set a timer to message myself every 5 minutes or so...

Unless.. there is a reason that you don't want us idling, in which case, I will stop the ol' timer and not idle...

ummm, yeah, i know this isn't the problem thread...but it has to do with IRC.....

i was having a conversation with a few people, when:

[16:12:54] * Connect retry #1 irc.fastcougar.com (6667)
[16:12:55] -irc.fastcougar.com- *** If you are having problems connecting due to ping timeouts, please type /notice 10709177741 nospoof now.
[16:12:55] * Closing Link: Bales[[email protected]] (K-lined: Excess Flood)
[16:12:55] * Disconnected


Any idea why this happened?

An ircop will have to fix it..
I take on this responsibility :) lol

You probably accidentely 'flooded' and it automatically klined you.
(K-line is a server wide ban... there is also gline which is network wide ban.. but dont worry about that as there is only one server)

Can you do something about the small user limit? (Or.. why is there a limit?)
How about the disallowed nickchanges? ... or the idle timeouts?

edit: Ignore the attached file.. I dont know how to get the attachments to stay unless the post stays..
