AfterDawn: Tech news

Chat with AfterDawn regulars

Chat with AfterDawn regulars For those of you that don't know, several AfterDawn regulars have been hanging out on an IRC channel for the past couple of years. The channel is in no way endorsed, supported or promoted by AfterDawn, it is merely a hang-out spot. We decided to post this news because some AfterDawn members who would like to join the channel cannot due to lack of IRC experience. Now you have an easier alternative option.
Two of the regulars (THRH and CoZZa) have decided to host a Java Chat that will allow you to login to #ad_buddies. It is located at http://adbuddies.ccsau.info/and works with most browsers (has not been tested on Mac). You need Java installed on your machine, Microsoft Windows systems will normally have Microsoft JVM installed, but I find it works better when run on Sun Java JRE, which is available for free here http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp

Please remember that the channel is just a chatroom, not an option for quick support. If you need support then please go to our Discussion Forums.

For those of you who do use IRC already, then hurry up and join the channel.

Server: irc.stormchat.org
Channel: #ad_buddies

Or simply just click here to connect quickly if you are using a compatible client.

Have Fun!

EDIT: Do NOT use your AfterDawn forum password when the java IRC client asks you to provide a nickname and password. That is only for people who have registered their nickname on the stormchat irc network, not on AfterDawn.

Check your Java install - make sure you have the latest and your security settings allow it.



821.4.2005 14:53

Im on now just using mIRC.

<philipman> Just like Taz says, make sure your security settings in your browser are correct, you have allow java and java script in your browser, and accept the safety certificate when it pops up. That's it. Make sure your popup blocker isn't blocking the java popup as well.

Hey Creaky, How did u end up going with your Router? The first thing to try to see if its your router thats blocking it is to DMZ it to your PC. Just log into your router, then go into Advanced then Port Forwarding on the left. There should be an option to Enable DMZ and IP Address (thats the IP of your computer) Hit apply, reboot router and see how it goes. If its still aint workin, jump on MSN and we will keep trying CoZZa

k, i've just gotta pop out, then i'll get on msn wth you and Mr. Taz and i'll attack my router too. back in a bit
