If it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, from the same laptop with the same configuration of the IRC program, then it is probably the hotel blocking port 113 and others. I don't know about the other programs, but mIRC requires port 113 for various purposes. It also requires that the configuratio...

Two points: 1) If you're a channel op, you can ask for your channel not to be visited by them, but don't then complain about spamming in your channel. 2) An oper can also cut the number and frequency of visitations, although that would also cut the chances of catching your spammers. We're not really...

Why do you not consider the Philippines to be a part of Asia just because they are islands in the Pacific? They are a founding member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), the Asian Development I'm a spammer!, and the Asian Olympic Council, and are quite close to Taiwan and much cl...

Several things to remember concerning posting complaints about IRC Ops (or opers) here. The first is that we're IRC Operators, not IRC police officers. Our policing functions are more concerned with keeping our servers operating and stopping or preventing violations of individual server policies. Th...

My #mIRCHelp script on the subject reads: IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is a chat medium, not a file-trading network. While some folks have kludged the simple DCC file transfer features into vast (and non-standard, and very possibly illegal) file trading enterprises, all questions about them should be d...

The implication that could be inferred is that irc.ac.za was previously rejecting Asian users. I don't think they much cared what race a user might be, but are now accepting users from, presumably, east of the Caucasus Mountains, north of the Indian Ocean, and west of the Pacific Ocean, plus other i...

I've found the reason most people can't connect to servers, once the technical issues have been resolved is that they are attempting to use the "Random" server. Random lists are almost out of date by the time they are released. For the ubiquitous mIRC user, it's simple enough to just type: /help con...
