Instructions to join IRC server: pine64.xyz
#1
Quck join by pressing here

______________________________________________________________________________________________

[EDIT 9]

IRC log has been added and is accessible via http://irc.pine64.uk/
See this post for more information 

[EDIT 8]

You can leave messages for other users in the IRC chat using: !msg add <username> <msg>
e.g. !msg add lukasz what are you using your pine64 for? 


Comes in handy when you have a question for a particular person who is currently offline.

[EDIT 7]

InfoBot now supports !linux !remix !android !seen [nick] commands. The !seen [nick] function informs the user when a particular nick was active last. The remaining ! functions list information about burning the respective OS' onto the SD card

[EDIT 6]

Chat is now accessible from the top bar on the forum: Chat

[EDIT 5]

A couple of improvements: 

1) Made the chat widget window on pine.xyz much bigger
2) You can now join using a secure connection (SSL) on port 6697. If you are connecting from pine.xyz and wish to use SSL then first press 'server and network', change the port to 6697 and tick the SSL box
3) Some funny stats from the last 2 weeks. They show the 25 most active nicks, busy hours, funny quotes, etc.  

- all credits for the above go to krux 

[EDIT 4] 

Ok, it doesn't get easier than this Click here and join in 

[EDIT 3] 

All stability issues have been solved. Servers running rock solid Smile

[EDIT 2]

If you are based in EU you may prefer to use uk.pine64.xyz 
If you are based in North America use us.pine64.xyz
If you are based elsewhere just use pine64.xyz - the service should assign the best option based on your connection

on a dedicated  client use irc.pine64.xyz to connect - it automatically assigns you to the closest IRC node

[EDIT]


Due to the popularity of the Pine64 IRC server we have made some adjustments and improvements (big thanks to krux!!) primarily aimed at stability and preventing disconnects, but also other wizardry. 

A short guide/explanation for those new to IRC or having problems connecting.

NB  add prefixes uk.  or  us.   based on your location to get the best experience.   
If you wish to use the SSL connection use port 6697 instead of 6667

* If you are using a web based client like Kiwi IRC make sure to input the server name: irc.pine64.xyz into the server field and make sure the port is set to 6667. Then all you have to do is press start. 

* if you are using a client like hexchat, first create a new server entry in the network list panel by pressing the +add button and give the server a name - e.g. Pine64. Then press the edit button and enter the server the address: irc.pine64.xyz (take a look at the second attachment). That's all, now you can join. 

* if you are using a terminal based client (for instance weechat) type '/connect irc.pine64.xyz'  (without ' ') - it will take you to the server.

The server is set up to take you directly to the main channel so you don't have to do anything to join.

If you just want to join in to ask a question then just use the Kiwi IRC web client - its simple to use and you don't have to install anything. Hexchat, and other similar clients, have the benefit of auto-joining when the client starts. Terminal clients are convenient, among other things, because you can have them running remotely on another machine and accessing when you want to chat.

Hope this helps those who are interested in joining us and feel intimidated by, or are unfamiliar with, IRC.

In regards to a comment on irc: It's unusual to add the port with a slash to the IP and it may confuse users (something HexChat specific?). Usually the port is added like pine64.no-ip.info:6667, which should work in other clients as well, as it is a valid ip address.

Cheers
Jens

To everyone joining, please note that while there are many of us online we are also doing other things and do not always see messages. I see people join in, say hello, and leave immediately.  Have some patience, will get back to you and your questions  Wink

Just a little heads up to those joining in the IRC. The InfoBot has been updated to answer questions. So, if you join and don't receive a response to your question from any of the members (which is unlikely( then pose the question to InfoBot (e.g. InfoBot, how do I....). The old commands !linux !remix and !android still work.

Server maintenance on both nodes tonight. We tried to do it during quiet time, when most people are sleeping or afk, but obviously services have gone down and users got disconnected. Sorry for the inconvenience.

What... why couldn't we wait for another 109 days? That should put the nail in the coffin of 'how stable is the pine64?' anyway... when looked after... it can run an IRC server for 265 days without issue... and it could have run longer but we were impatient Wink
