Just saying, IRC seems to be borked, I'm seeing errors like these, if you're seeing something similar, it's not just you.

And not even the /server command seems to be working.

Welp.

Coyote's down. The IP Derek used resolves to Coyote. Looks like Delphini works.

176.126.66.218 (or, maybe, 198.8.81.114 << This 198 IP no longer works).

OR

Delphini.GA.US.StarChat.Net

I've tried numerous servers and platforms and get various errors, just can't get in.

Delphini IP works fine for me using mIRC v7.38 - I am connected to it right now.

/server 176.126.66.218

Your host is Delphini.GA.US.StarChat.Net, running version UnrealIRCd-4.2.1.1

Maybe try a Secure Socks Layer connection, just for fun.

/server Delphini.GA.US.StarChat.Net did the trick for me. Thanks!

Yeah thanks for the info.

I've got all the servers set up in IceChat, if one doesn't work I can cancel and skip to the next, Delphini didn't respond either when I tried it, that was hours ago though.

Coyote seems to be back up, it let me in super fast there, I didn't get a chance to stop it and try Delphini again!

Apparently now both the delphi server and the 176.126.66.218 server are dead for mirc. Connection times out every attempt.

On my side of things, connecting via https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/ seems to work... right now. No idea why.
