13:55 mikemol I'm contemplating moving #rosettacode from Freenode to OFTC.
13:56 opticron D:
13:56 mikemol Rationale documented here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+​MichaelMolG/posts/7kKmRgD33A3
13:56 fedaykin "Hey, +freenode, could you please check your projects@ email address? I sent…" http://rldn.net/42R
13:56 opticron I saw
13:57 mikemol opticron: For the foreseeable future, it's not really a big deal as long as some of you with ops powers are still in here.
13:58 opticron I'm in here for the forseeable future, but I am unlikely to jump to a new server due to sheer laziness
13:59 mikemol As a generic user, I don't mind Freenode. But I find them irritatingly unprofessional when I have to deal with them directly.
13:59 mikemol opticron: The other option would be Slack. I use Slack in several other contexts, and it's frankly awesome in those.
14:00 mikemol Comes with IRC and XMPP integration, for those who need or prefer that.
14:00 opticron huh
14:02 mikemol I'll give the Freenode staff another week or two before I try to make any decision on it.
14:02 mikemol (at least. I'm not in any hurry.)
14:04 Lord_of_Life OFTC?
14:05 mikemol Lord_of_Life: Another IRC network with a very similar mission to that of Freenode.
14:05 mikemol http://www.oftc.net/
14:05 fedaykin "OFTC - Home"
14:06 Lord_of_Life Open and Free Technology Community, found it.
14:07 mikemol What the hell. I'll just go ahead and create the Slack group, so the unfamiliar can play with it.
14:12 mikemol Mm. So I created the group, but I need a way for people to be able to invite themselves into it. We solved that problem for some of the other slack teams I'm on, but I'll have to do some more setup work for that to work.
14:12 * mikemol goes back to work

16:52 eMBee mikemol: what is the problem with needing to register rosettacode? is there an issue with the channel?
16:53 opticron it was/is registerd
16:53 opticron in the great nick purge, he lost the nick it was registered it
16:53 opticron *to
16:53 opticron jeez
16:53 opticron my fingers are finging badly today
16:54 eMBee mikemol: and what is that hat you are wearing on your g+ picture? an 8-inch disk?
16:54 eMBee oh
16:57 eMBee moving to another network is not going to make this channel go away
16:58 eMBee not that it's a big issue with the low traffic here
16:59 eMBee slack could be interesting if the wiki change log can be integrated
17:03 mikemol Wiki log change could *easily* be integrated into Slack; Slack has built-in support for slurping RSS feeds.
17:06 mikemol eMBee: Pic of that hat from a different angle: https://www.flickr.com/photos/28208534@N​07/4065877369/in/photosof-28208534@N07/
17:06 mikemol Now don't you be saying anything unpleasant about my hat. Might be...consequences. ;)
17:08 eMBee i would not have any reason to. looks like a fine hat, at least from what i can see
17:50 mikemol :)
