the / is for separating directories... you'll want to use a colon for a port number. ie.. frop.taphouse.org:6697

Cool server and religion. I actually quite liked Principia Discordia and there appears to be some parallels so thanks for the rec

Hexchat is confusing. If I type /server irc://irc.taphouse.org/subgenius in a server tab it connects but I have to put frop.taphouse.org/6697 in the saved servers network list option or I get an unknown host message.

Why can't I just put irc.taphouse.org/6697?

confusing

so it's irc.taphouse.org/6697? It won't connect for me, I get an unknown host message.

You might want to look into what the "Church of Subgenius" is first. Namely a radio show... but much more than that.

I assume you've heard of the flying spaghetti monster? kinda sorta something like that.

Right now there's no external access allowed. We've gone back and forth on this. The demand has been low. If enough people ask for it we will do it.

Oh OK, fair enough. If it's true I'll keep on the lookout. Would be fun to be able to use it in my client

I believe it's broken until they get a new server.
