Topic: cgi-irc

You guys should provide a CGI-IRC page (http://cgiirc.sourceforge.net/) so that we can access the chat channel via the web.  I think I suggested this before, but I like the idea.  You could use pubb's facilities to make sure the person accessing the page is registered on the formum and is logged in.

neat!

Re: cgi-irc

this would be cool.  does it require java or something though?

Re: cgi-irc

no, it is all html - requires perl on the server side, but I am pretty sure that is it...

Re: cgi-irc

I'm all for it. Like I said before IRC is blocked at work and that where I spend most of my PC 'free' time at. I can't seem to get irssi (or any other text chat app) to work for me so I can just ssh into my box at home and chat sad

Re: cgi-irc

I just doubt it's only HTML. Doesn't it need to be able to connect from your machine to 6667

Re: cgi-irc

RTFM wink...it is all html on the client side.  It might have a little JS thrown in for sport, but all client comms are done over port 80 - or whatever http port you have it running on.
