We're considering a move back to IRC. Beta-testers appreciated:

irc.rizon.net:7000
#applefritter

Any opinions on which Mac OS X IRC clients are best?

X-Chat Aqua

X-Chat Aqua is free and fairly easy to use (and is what I use). Snak and ircle would be the other most common, but there are some new ones and several command-line clients.

Colloquy

I've been experimenting with Colloquy, which seems pretty nice. X-Chat seemed a bit rough to me, but I didn't play with it much.

Depends what you're after Smile. For me, it's all simpleness. a few networks, a few channels... and tabs. that's all. Snak works excellently for me.

Ircle, Snak and X-Chat Aqua seem to be mainstays.

why dont you run a IRC server

why dont you run a IRC server on the AF server ... so then people would just need to connect to irc.applefritter.com and you could have multiple chanels etc ... just a thought Wink

Forwarding?

You could always forward irc.applefritter.org to whatever server you're using. If forward is the right word.

These things happen

"[19:34] -romeo- [GLOBAL] Sorry for the lag folks, Rizon is currently undergoing a ddos attack that started shortly after school was dismissed. We appologize for any inconvenience this brings you. Rizon staff are currently working on the situation... Please bear with us."

I did get timed out for the first time since the channel started up a few days ago... took about 5 minutes to get back on. Server speed is up and down, but has been about normal for the most part.
