If you rely professionally on IRC, I'd love to hear about your usage!

What IRC networks do you connect to?
What communities are you in?
What do you love about it?
What are your gripes with it?

🔄 Boosts welcome, help me reach people out of my circles!


BonoboNET (http://deavmi.assigned.network/projects/bonobonet)

Community wise, a lot of networking folk such as users of the #Yggdrasil routing project, some casual chatter with some #i2p users and also on the #CRXN network (http://deavmi.assigned.network/projects/crxn)

What I love about it is the simplicity of setting up an IRC network, the software is mature and just works. Likewise the user experience is "no-bas", simple parameters to get connected, SASL works as expected and it can all be done via a simple text interface. Client support is huge, you can find a client you truly enjoy and secondly almost everyone knows how to use it or is willing too, user management is not hard and is really simple. It's very lean.

Gripes, I guess timeouts when they infrequently do occur and the lost messages between such times (I use a bouncer but such timeouts can annoy me), there is a backlog feature for IRC and perhaps on the future they could update qassel to request it after timeout occurred )at such a timestamp).

Thanks for the very detailed answer @deavmi !
