    That's more of a work-around than a fix though.

    Actually, you should not try to fix what isn't broken.
    The same settings are applied to all users.
    If that works for all of them, except one, chances are the problem is on the "one" end.

    Cleared your cache recently?
    Completely reloaded the page?
    Recent Java(tm)?

    My inability to solve problems has prevailed once again.

    Sorry this is way far back in this thread but how do you get up you rep?

    Do you have to get people to recommend you or something? or is it just post enough?

    People give you Reputation by clicking the icon above every post [​IMG]

    Once that you will get a screen that will pop out (it look like this):
    [​IMG]

    I approve = +Rep
    I Disapprove = -Rep

    You need +7 Rep to use the chat (25 was the old requirement)

    Is there any other ports the irc is available on? At ASU (my college), the port 6667 is blocked. I have had luck with two other servers by connecting to other ports (8000 and 5555), and they work fine.

    Is port 6667 the only port it is available on?

    Did you try a different application like trillian or chatzilla?

    No, because I know it's not the source of the problem. I know for a fact that it's my college's internet that blocks the port, and I know for a fact that using other ports worked. I'm not using the (Cr)applet (which didn't work, by the way), I was using XChat.

    I don't really understand proxies enough to know how to use it with IRC. I know a proxy is basically you 'asking' a different host for information from somewhere (so it doesn't get blocked), but I always thought it was just for websites. How do you get/use an IRC proxy?

    In preparation for some server modifications, the server needed a few configuration tweaks and updates. The chat will be back in full after the server modifications are complete.

    I was probably asleep during the warning.
    I woke up, and bam. Everything's down.

    :p

    Yeah, me too :p. It would be nice for the warnings to be up at least 24 hours before the actual downtime.
