Wow, my other IP (74.115.0.4 or sometimes 74.115.0.3) is also banned.

My brother will hate this because he uses the same IP(s).
And I did even do anything.  ::)

they probably had to z-line a large set of IPs in order to stop whoever/whatever was responsible for the netsplit.

thankfully, a IRC netsplit is completely harmless when the server has registered channels, so whoever is responsible didn't read the fine print.

Note that you are not banned from #computerhope at all.

you're banned form the mibbit network- this is an issue with mibbit and not CH.

Can I use #computerhope from another IRC client then? Would the opera client (uses irc.freenode.net i think) work?

No. #Computerhope is on mibbit.net, and you're banned from mibbit- probably an accident. All I was saying was that your issue is not fixable by anybody here at CH.

I find it funny that I was on the computerhope channel and then I suddenly get banned.  ::)

talk to the mibbit ppl:

you were banned from the IRC network, mibbit.net. You cannot access the channels because your IPs have been Z-lined for some reason. You were not banned from the channel. For example- I didn't ban you, nor did any of the ops ban you from a channel I help operate. However- you couldn't join it since you are banned from the network entirely.

Therein lies the rub.

We don't know, but contact mibbit and the chances are good.
