IRC Chatroom Meeting this Saturday

Submitted by caedes 08/30/05 1:46 PM GMT

You may have noticed that I have a added link to the IRC chatroom. Since it is a bit more fun to talk in a chatroom when you're not the only one there, let's plan to all meet there this Saturday (Sept. 3th) at 8:00PM GMT (convert). I'll try to get as many mods as I can to join us. See you there!

Hehe... I noticed it too. Sounds like fun. Not really my kind of thing though since I spell terribly (especially when I'm in a hurry) and slowly at best... I'm really dependent on my dictionaries to make myself understood. Have fun though everyone. ^_^

I couldn't log on either. Had the same problem as Pat and I remembered I had this problem another time with one of my desktop computers and found that the machine didn't have MS Virtual Machine installed on it. This was when Microsoft and Sun Microsystems hadn't started their respective lawsuits. I was able to download a copy of Virtual Machine and saved a copy of the executable program. I installed it on this machine = no more problems. I don't think Microsoft has that download available anymore, so I don't know what the answer is for others with this problem. Hope this helps and someone else can point a finger at how this issue can be resolved.

being an irc girl for 4 years, it's a pleasure to do things like this one :) pat, visit www.mirc.com and download this program, install it.. it'll function better than the java applet. i see the error, identification required.. maybe a firewall blocking?

try downloading it, approx. 2 mb and typing:
/server irc.quakenet.org
/join #caedes.net

if you need assistance, contact me ;)

Last time I tried to join, I got the message:

"Cannot join channel, you must be authed to join (+r)"

Tried to get Q to recognise me and get auth'd, etc, (all new to me) but the quakenet verification page seems to be down - the security image doesn't display on any browser. I joined the #help channel and sure enough lots of people have this problem. Great.

that strange usually it doesn't give that message . Auth is used only for channel operators to get their operator status. I have never encountered this problem.

::CaptainHero
09/01/05 4:56 PM GMT
I believe it's where the channel has been made '+r' in order to make sure that only people auth'd by Q get in. It's supposed to stop spam bots, etc, I think. That's from what little I know.

I got in before, no problem, so maybe someone changed the channel status.

The situation seems to be that you need to be auth'd to get into the channel. However, to get auth'd you need to go to the quakenet verification page (having first been given the URL by email). That page isn't working properly, as per this message on the quakenet help channel: "Auth Verify Page, R and S are currently DOWN, we have no idea why, or when they will be back so DO NOT ask about it".

So, the way I read it, we seem to be stuck. I guess we could wait 24 hours and request our passwords by email from Q: /msg Q REQUESTPASSWORD user@host.com

I expect Caedes is tinkering. That's only the Java client that isn't running. You should still be able to get into the chat at one of the US quakeworld servers, but just not through your browser at present (i.e. you'd have to go through a standalone client, like MiRC).

Then just type /join #caedes.net (having got onto the server above).
