Wizzu's DALnet page
I am an IRC operator on the DALnet IRC
Network. More specifically, I got my first O:line on the toronto.dal.net
server (thanks again MSofty!!) and after that second line on igc.dal.net.
Currently my home server is again toronto.dal.net, after spending more than
a year on the Finnish xgw.dal.net server.
I'm a so-called "CSop", a ChanServ/NickServ operator.
I have also authored the New DALnet Operator's Manual.
I enjoy DALnet immensely. Of the main IRC nets (EFnet, Undernet, IRCnet
and DALnet) it's by far the best net, with the friendly atmosphere
and advanced user services
which allow, among other things, nickname ownership. It's fun
to be online, to chat with friends and to meet new people. Some would
also call it a waste of time. :-)
There's no use for me placing DALnet links here, there's plenty of link
pages available elsewhere (check the mainpage
to get started).
For those of you don't know what IRC
is, it's a realtime text-based chat service (Internet Relay Chat).
If you have used WebChat or other web chatting places, IRC is much better.
And if you have tried IRC, DALnet is the best network for ircing.
How to get on DALnet:
server irc.dal.net, port 7000
This will pick you a random server, if it's full try again, you will
likely get another server the second time. Full server list is
available by fingering servers (a) dal.net, or from the
page. All DALnet servers use port 7000, most have additional
ports too, but those vary from server to server.
You can try things out with our telnet
For those people who haven't got an IRC client yet (a program for
using IRC), look into
ftp.dal.net's client directory.
how to spell DALnet.
Please get it right.
I've written quite a lot of ircII (a so called IRC client, program for ircing)
scripts. If you're interested, I have some of them
available for downloading.
Some of these are DALnet specific.
There are some scripts I'm not giving out, mostly because the aren't worth it,
or they are just for my private use.
