Thursday I attended a conference that had an IRC channel for social chatter.
I didn't bring my laptop, so I tried to install an IRC client on my Android phone.
The first hit had an 'In app purchases' label…
What the fsck...
@pmakholm didn’t know IRC is still alive. Last time I used it is when it was still bundled with Opera browser. It’s like 7 years ago.
@doneljan IRC bundled with a browser? Was that a thing?
This was the national Network Operators Group. A fair amount of the attendants was old farts from when IRC was *the real time chat platform*
@pmakholm Yup that is right. It was bundled with Opera before.
What I love about IRC before are the scripts, specially the ascii arts. Been using Tracer script, not sure if you know that.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
