Can anyone tell me how to join the room using mibbit? I can't use colloquy coz it looks like my school ISP is blocking the IRC port... I can't connect to any servers...

Go ORANGE!!! Wait, I hate orange juice! That will have to change, then! big_smile

When you sign on to Mibbit, either leave the "Channel(s)" box empty of if you want to join the MacHeist channel, type in "#macheist". Once you are connected to the server, in the server box type "/join #orangeslice jingga" (which is our key to get in the room).

I'm in #ORANGESLICE successfully with ye olde reliable Ircle. I DID need to use the password jingga. The 'Topic' first line says:

"It's Starting!  Don't give out the password in main irc even though people are asking."

Somebody with the handle "babybandit" is spamming the IRC right now for several minutes already. I'm not sure if it's someone from another team.

Edit: He's a greeny. Pathetic. Maybe we should change the password?

It is very easy to change the password. Fortunately, the person who came in from the Green team a couple of days ago was quickly identified and banned.

The password has just been broadcasted in #macheist. Got a good-natured blue in there at the moment, but just a heads up. The some person also gave out the green password, so it was probably just some troll.

hmmm, tried colloquy & couldn't get anywhere with that.

went back to ircle (been years since I used that) and managed to get in to the server, but I can't join the room - something about a wrong key (+k)?

I'll try again - maybe cuz it is Sunday I can't get in...

PM (either thru the forums or IRC) anyone on that list for the password. Hopefully this will be the last time a password change is needed.

Considering the very unusual circumstances of the last leak, I think there is a good chance there will not be another.
