This evening we’ll be upgrading’s IRC server software. Most of the changes will be invisible to chatters, but will result in a better, more reliable chatting experience for everyone.

We strongly encourage you to take the time to acquaint yourself with these new features by reading through our brand new chat FAQ.

This is extremely important information, that you must read if you’re not to be totally confused by the changeover! [More]
