As long as you are already on you are fine. I got disconnected as my surface went to sleep and now I can't get back in. The registration server is timing out is the error I'm getting.

still can't figure it out. I can get on the irc just fine on my Android tablet, and i can get on other irc networks just fine with hex chat, but when i try to get on neowin I only can get this far

and it just gets stuck there

edit: here's a picture of it (ps. i manually told it to disconnect to show that it just sits there)

Odd, have you tried to remove the Neowin profile and create a new one in hexchat?
