As of now the IRC server is offline, and http://serialcoders.sytes.net
is redirected to pergs website where it tells you that the site is temporarily down due to moving.
Comcast says they'll connect the cable connection at the new location sunday morning.
Since there is no official IRC host since Gizmo is prefectly willing to let you guys suffer for a couple days, feel free to post your own suggestions for IRC chatting. I'm sure Infinite would like to post the domain or IP of his IRC server, or whoever else may do the same or suggest a channel on a public server.
So if you think YOU'RE bad off not having a IRC server, just think about poor me who has to live without internet for 48 whole hours! I may go through withdrawal, convulsions, or even DIE!
