ComputerHope chat is down.
« on: April 24, 2010, 02:02:37 PM »
Dear ComputerHope forums, I recently went on your forums to discover your CH chat was down. Everybody had appeared to have been ghosted and killed. The chat is dead and empty now, except for the very bots and such that remain.
ChanServ is dead, ComputerHope is dead,
HopeBot has been kicked off too.

Something has seriously gone wrong. :O

If you guys at CH team can help find out the issue and what went wrong, please investigate this issue sometime soon.

Now would be a good time.

Whatever happend, a DOS attack or some threat, the CH chat is down.

Anyways, it has appeared to me that the Mibbit webchat server has gone down.
Anybody, if they can should use Pidgin, mIRC, or some other chat besides Mibbit.
as the servers are down, there is no other ways of communicating besides these forums.

Lets wait it out until the forums help chatroom comes back online, along with the servers hosting it. As it is currently "dead". :P

Thanks, Daniel.

It should be coming back online soon though, Mibbit just has to restart its servers and all. Dont worry peeps, it'll be back up soon! ;)

EDIT: Servers are back online, though some of our bots are a bit missing. *hint hint* :D

According to my logs on another mibbit channel some of the people quitting had this as a reason:

"lost in the netsplit"

And then a number of regulars joined, but none of then idented... (one after the other- one joins, 5 minutes later, they are forced to stop using the nick (since it's registered) they quit and rejoin a few times, quit, somebody else appears, etc. Looks to me like somebody was trying to impersonate them. Stranger still all the hostmasks were accurate...
I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

It seems like an issue with the client (but why that would be is extremely odd), because I tried my IRC client (ChatZilla), and nickserv did nothing unusual (usual being asking me to identify, which chatzilla handles automatically).
