Trying to connect via AndChat. Thought it'd be a case of pointing the address at irc.starfyre.org then joining the channel. Instead it just states disconnected: connection refused.

What rookie mistake am I making?

It does but I had an issue with the android client. Road sorted me out though, all good.

Fucking Charter Spectrum is killing my personal web space and the java chat page.

I got a postcard from them today.

“ATTENTION: Spectrum Web Space to be discontinued.”
“This announcement is to inform you that the Spectrum Web Space service will be discontinued and access to the platform will be suspended on July 1, 2018.”

It goes on telling me to move my data to a 3rd party web hosting provider.

The chat will still be there but access can only be from the mibbit link

http://widget00.mibbit.com/?settings=e8 ... onstershow

or an IRC chat program.

There’s only a few people that still use the java site and I’m sorry but I’m not going to pay for web space to keep it running.

It was fun while it lasted!
Thanks for your support through all the years.
I've met a lot of good people!

Bummer! So just to be clear, the chat will still be there from a program like mIRC and the mibbit link, but the Java one is dead? Or is the whole thing gone?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO@!$&!@##@?$^&*!@#$@

What options do we have, Road? Can someone who has more IRC savvy than me generate a script that still is able to play the sounds, etc? It would involve sending out the sound files and storing them in the same folder IF someone knows how to add those commands in a script.

I used to run scripts in another life but I don't remember a God damned thing about it these days.

There's a group text app called groupme that works real well as a chat forum. It's simple and easy to use, just need to add people with their cell phone number.

The chat is still alive and well but only through the mibbit link or a real IRC chat program like mIRC, Icechat or something like andchat for your phone.

G08, mIRC will play all the sounds but I'd have to send them to you and you'd have to drop them into your mirc/sounds folder. mIRC charges $10 I believe for a lifetime but I believe it can be used without registering. You just have to wait about 30 seconds for the register screen to die.

Thanks Atkins&Rebels but I'm not giving out my cell phone number for any app.

I wrote this page to help newbies setup mirc a long time ago.

http://webpages.charter.net/badfinger/mirc.htm

If anyone wants to go that route the page should be up 'til fucking charter kills it on July 1st.

The router setup at the end of the instructions isn’t necessary. I can just zip the sounds and email them to you.

I have zero problem with that. I'll be good God damned before I watch a Bears game without the sounds of a goat fornicating with what I presume to be some smoking hot blonde woman :lol:
