I'd like to take the time to invite everyone informally to #mefi on slashnet (irc://irc.slashnet.org/mefi)! Ops for everyone! Please check your discontent at the door. That is all.

Don't fall for it. I went in there once recently and cortex chased me out with a ball-peen hammer.

Oh lordy lou, let's all get on IRC and act like idiots. If anyone needs me, I'll be in the angrydome.

The revival of #mefi? And I was just thinking the other day about how I hadn't heard about Beth's boobs in awhile.

I'll stop by. I miss tog. :(

For those who don't want to bother with mirc and all its itinerant goofiness: Chatzilla. (Have to be using Firefox)

I rarely whine to mathowie in backchannel fashion, but this has been something I have wanted for a long time. Yay.

Aw man. Just what I need, a second IRC channel to completely kill my work productivity.

(Maybe that this one's not on freenode will be enough of a hurdle to keep me away... just maybe. Ok, not likely.)

okay, so i just don't know how to use this thing. i haven't used mirc for ten years!
posted by liquorice at 4:50 PM on March 23, 2007


For the Mac users among us, I have found Colloquy to be a lovely client. I used to use Chatzilla, but hated that I couldn't command+tab to a Firefox browser window. Colloquy is free, and applescriptable. Plus, if you are running iTunes while chatting type /music or /itunes.

I went onto the mefi irc, but everyone started hitting on me, so I left. I was like, "as if!"

Hey Pastabagel, you really wear that shirt. Yow.

But, dios, you know that you can see me in #tapes on occasion and you have been doing a fine job of ignoring..uhm..stalking me on googletalk.

While I can appreciate cellphone's offer to bring back #mefi, I don't know if it would be able to garner much interest due to the bad rap it got in the days of feeling like it was #mefi vs mefi, hence the establishment of #tapes, imo. Of course, this was before there were over 50k mefites, so, maybe there will be more interest than I would expect.

"please name the jabber server 'gom'."

I was kind of hoping for "Lew Alcindor".

I don't think it would be safe to assume you are going to do the pounding.
posted by philomathoholic at 12:30 AM on March 24, 2007


...I guess that pun was a bit too subtle.
posted by spiderwire at 12:43 AM on March 24, 2007


pound or punned?

you decide.

Damn, I knew I should have registered #mefi on slashnet.
posted by Eideteker at 8:14 AM on March 24, 2007


I'd love to. I seem to remember being part of an irc chan once. Also, there's a period of about 5 years of my life I can't really account for. I wonder if there's a connection there.
