I am not sure... I can connect but I can only see some people there. Let's see what cokemaster or brad say about this - they are the the "IRC" guys...

I still can't get on there. It seems like we can't get to the zIRC servers at all. Either on GZ's Java IRC client or on standalone IRC client.

I am just talking to JAMMAN on the #geekzone channel and he tells me to use irc.zirc.net instead. Apparently some DNS problems.

There is a welcome message on the IRC server advising of a temporary problem and to use irc.zirc.net rather than irc.zirc.org.

You'd think it was a simple DNS issue that it could be fixed by now, it's almost been 24 hours.

Set your client to connect to:
irc.zirc.org
irc.zirc.net

That way if it can't log in via .org your client should automactically try the other
