    Hello everyone,

    I would like to invite you all to Micronet's official IRC channel at irc.bbses.info/6667 in #micronet. I'm now in the channel all the time using ZNC (my nick is digimaus) and Andrew is also there as bitbyter. Please come in and chat!

    You can also hang out in #bbs to talk to other sysops.

    All are welcome! This isn't just for sysops.

    And this is why the echoes are dead.

    Are you saying that IRC is discouraging posting to the echoes? I
    dunno.. perhaps IRC satisfies the appeal of being "live" online
    with other people. There is nothing that precludes those same
    people (or others) to post in the echos in the meantime.

    The closest to live chat that I care to have is what I get out of
    Telegram. You can strike up a convo with someone, and walk away
    and have dinner or something and come back later from where you
    left off. No pressure to reply in real-time, although the option
    is there.

    How are IRC folks here accessing IRC? Is it via smartphones/
    tablets?

    Maybe Micronet could experiment with a Telegram presence (linking
    up an echo or two) as an adjunct to IRC? ;) The result would
    entertain the live aspect of IRC yet still retain the standard
    messaging experience too.

    I use an irssi client running on a remote shell server 24/7 for accesing IRC. It works great.

    I think messaging and BBSing are different things, scratch different itches, and don't overlap that much.

    IRC is for quick questions or issues that don't take much detail to discuss (ie: "can you tell me where to find the man page for $program?"). BBSing allows for deeper discussions since you have more time to write your posts and can elaborate longer, meaningful replies.

    Possibly. In the world of instant gratification that the internet has provided us, why bother posting and waiting possibly days for 1 or 2 relies, or maybe none at all? Just hope on IRC, talk real time, idle in a channel and catch up with the chat later.

    I use mIRC and I'm only in the #synchronet channel in irc.synchro.net though I use other networks for other purposes...like instant gratification :)

    Lord no. Still, if I said "make them do it the old fashioned way" I'd be told to pull out my modem and dial up to a BBS rather than posting via an nntp usenet client :)

    Thanks. I may have to look that up and figure it out. For now, I
    am mobile-dataless until Jan 4. :(

    So, do you call IRC=messaging, and BBSing=discussions?


    IRC is for quick questions or issues that don't take much

    page for $program?"). BBSing allows for deeper discussions
    since you have more time to write your posts and can

    There is definately a distinction when doing "messaging" on a tablet/smartphone via the apps .vs. decent offline methods and
    editors via a BBS. But the JamNNTP server solution that anyone
    can use with Thunderbird or a similar email program isn't too
    shabby at all.

    In my mind, "messaging" is short for "Instant Messaging", where you have realtime
    conversations, at least in theory.

    Actually, a lot of people leaves idle IRC clients so answers to questions can pop up
    with an hour of delay or more, but the IRC/XMPP format is tailored for realtime while
    something like NNTP or BBS is tailored for async conversations.

    I do a lot of both and they scratch different itches.

    Ahh well if your IRC server wasn't such shit, maybe it would actually be online sometimes. I tried on several occasions to connect to it, but it never would. I forgot to take it out of my IRC program, and by some miracle, it did connect later. But I didn't know it, and I never saw any notifications from you. I see now its your server, but the "official micronet IRC channel". That is really the only reason I visited. No loss though. Have fun being a jackass

    you were always in the #bbs channel. you never repliedto anybody. you never said anything ever. dont know why you'd even go there.

    the reason the server didnt work for you sometimes is because i was putting your ip into the firewall.

    people can be in the micronet channel, i dont care about that.
    bbs people can make channels on the server.

    everyone doesnt like people that idle and never talk and log
    conversations.
    we're a close knit group of friends.

    bbses.info is closed. i dont provide services to bbs people anymore.

    i do not follow micronet or any bbs msg networks. so posting here
    normally wont get my attention.

    i did not get any reply back from you via email and txt.

    i got a lot of complaints over the years about people who sit on irc and never talk and just log conversations. sometimes people know that because sometimes
    sensative information is posted by accident on irc.

    so if someone logs in and doesnt say hi and never talks, i normally block their ip after several attempts at contacting them.

    i also have an attacker that uses mibbit so i block that.

    sorry if you were misled; i allow anybody to make their own channel, but in the channel you were in i get rid of people that do not participate due to past complaints.
