Cant connect to IRC
« on: July 13, 2010, 05:37:37 pm »
When I try to connect to the IRC(on the IceChat IRC Client and the Web client), it gives me this error "Unable to connect: Connection refused: connect", is there any reason why this is happening? Am I the only one getting this?
"But are you going to kill her off?"
"It's not your decision. I love the character, she stays."
"Yeah, well the only thing love's done is put you in this position; I say kill her off!"
"Yeah, but you say a lot of things... and how does that work? You're a bicycle" Claudio Sanchez, In the song Ten Speed of Gods Blood and Burial, which is basically about a crazy old writer talking to his bicycle.

I just tried to connect seconds ago, and refreshed the main-page of the forums.  Looks like somebody has already posted this!  How convenient  :).

This is what happens when I let other people run MY IRC for a while, I'll get it fixed as soon as WS finishes FIDDLING WITH DELICATE IRC BITS~

I promise everyone it'll be better soon =^.^= *grabs glitterglue and a feather boa to fix things with*

Not one to complain, but questions must be asked after almost 5 days solid downtime.  What happened?  Did the server nuke itself or what? :/

Sorry for the long repair delay.  I will work on steps to try and prevent this in the future.
