After a very long time, I decided to drop into MadIRC again today, which I’ve written about on a few previous posts, such as MadIRC – Nice People on the Dark Web!?
It was quite nice to be among the sarcasm and tech talk once again. The only difference was that I was doing so on my Ubuntu system now, so under the hood, it was a contrasting process.
One of the “adjustments” I was getting used to was using WeeChat, as opposed to HexChat, which I had used on my old system. For those of you who like the old school technology look, WeeChat is about as old school as you can get:
I’ve mentioned on here before that I grew up using the DOS command prompt (yeah, pre-Windows), and WeeChat reminds me of that in so many ways! *geeks out*
The only problem I seemed to have with it, today, is that it wouldn’t connect via Tor. Am I cursed with this? Maybe. Actually, the issue might have been that I just didn’t have the Tor Browser open, which is a problem I also had with HexChat on occasion.
Anyway, the particular channel that I hang out on is called #Elite, and while it may not be full of psychos, per se, they’re just a tech-savvy bunch of guys who like things such as Linux and coding. Oh, and they might make the occasional politically incorrect joke – don’t worry, you get used to that!
What is rather frowned upon is anything relating to CP, or asking for links, or just general trolling. Look, if you read this blog, I’ve given more than my fair share of links. No need to stop by IRC for that, right?
So, uhh…what’s so special about it? I really don’t know. What’s special about any chat room, for that matter? Come by and see for yourself.
With that, I leave you with a classic quote from bash.org:
<Sonium> someone speak python here?
<Sonium> the programming language
