Hey guys, how do you get on the IRC? I clicked on IRC next to Blogs at the top of this page and it says "not found" every time.

This is the correct link: http://www.neowin.net/irc

Go to the front page and click "Chat", or just click this: http://www.neowin.net/irc

We didn't bother updating the URLs on the old forum skin as we didn't think we'd still be using it!

Excellent news! So glad you didn't just scrap it and stuck with it. I'm also intrigued to here the explanation of what was causing the load issues. Don't be shy about the technical issues I'm sure we'd all love to hear about it!

It will be there, the only reason you didn't see it last time, was because the site was in high load mode.

Not used IRC for years - can someone give me a link or a brief tutorial on how to connect to neowin irc and what program to use?

Indeed, you guys should recommend a client to use on your IRC page. :p For every OS.

I'm assuming mIRC is still the weapon of choice for Windows.

There's always mibbit for those who don't want to install a client

You can use Mibbit, a web-based IRC client:

1) Register your IRC username here: http://www.neowin.net/irc

2) Go to http://mibbit.com/chat/

3) Hit the 'Server' link and type in "irc.neowin.net"

4) Hit the 'Auth' link, select "Pass" from the dropdown and enter your Neowin password

5) Enter your IRC username in the Nick field and hit GO.

That's the simplest way to do it, but if you plan on visiting the channel regularly a client is the way to go. If you want a good client that is free and doesn't nag you all the time download X-Chat 2. This is the version that is free by Silverex so you don't have to worry about it.

Not again, whats the point in taking the forums completely offline.

Can you not run a temp forum for those that dont want to sit and wait however long it is gonna take, 6 hours is a bit optimistic.

Cool, not sure what the difference is going to be but looking forward to it. Rest of the site upgrade was great.

Incase anyone is using a command line IRC client such as Irssi this should work:

/nick username

/connect irc.neowin.net -6667 password
