IRC Chat Web Widget
« on: April 07, 2016, 01:40:52 AM »
Not sure if this is an isolated incident, but I'm not able to get the kiwiirc to serve up the widget for the chat. I'm looking into it.

The IRC server itself is not down, so other clients should work.
I'll finish something one of these days!

Looks like kiwiirc itself is down. I'll wait to see if it comes back online.

In all honesty, I'm considering removing the widget from the web page itself due to problems like this. I'd keep the actual IRC server up and running, but leave up to you all to pick the client you like the most. These web clients tend to be awful.

I've temporarily changed the web widget to mibbit until the kiwiirc services come back up (if they come back up). I'll be looking into getting a web client served from the actual server instead of some remote location so that this doesn't happen in the future.

Also, I'll apologize in advance for the ads on the mibbit client. I can't do anything about them (other than pay mibbit, and I'm not doing that). Just use an adblocker, like ublock origin or w/e, and you won't see them. Just so you all know, they're not my ads, but ones that come packaged with the client.

The widget has been restored to the kiwiirc widget. The default chat lobby has also been restored to its pre-crash state.
