Can we start using discord instead so it’s easier to chat on mobile?
How dare you bring your new fangled technology into this? IRC is a huge improvement on Morse and you should be grateful for its implementation.  >o<

The only benefit to Discord over IRC is voice chat and I'm sure having obnoxious tweens voice chat raid us would be amazing; keeping IRC is the best option.

This is because the Let's Encrypt root CA expired yesterday. Some older clients don't yet trust the new root, but up-to-date ones should.

You can try updating your TLS library version, although I'm not sure exactly how to do this on Windows. Maybe installing the latest version of your IRC client will do the trick?

I am going to look into a workaround, but this is fundamentally a problem with your client, not the server.

I've tried a manual workaround for now, but the automation will undo it in about 10 hours if I don't make it permanent. Can you try again and let me know if it helped?

I have confirmation that this helps, at least for some clients. I'll make it permanent later.

This is a Kiwi IRC problem, nothing to do with us. Hopefully they will fix it soon. You can work around it for the time being by connecting with Mibbit if you like.

My work computer won't let me. I'll just wait it out or maybe never join again if Kiwi is dead forever. Auf wiedersehen, chat.

What do I, uh, do?

IRC is not a unified platform; it is a protocol. What you're doing is connecting to a server (QuakeNet) which would only give you access to QuakeNet's IRC channels. The FES IRC server is entirely separate from QuakeNet.

To use the FES IRC you only need to go to https://irc.tfes.org/

You can also connect with your own client with:

Server: irc.tfes.org
Port: 7000 (requires SSL)
Chat room: #theflatearthsociety

This is all found in the OP of this thread which I highly suggest you read.

Don't even bother with all those other crap message services developed over the last two decades.
Text-based instant messaging systems achieved perfection in the late 1980s with the deployment of IRC chat. Once ICQ came out, it all turned to poo-poo.
