So, Slack has decided to shutdown IRC and XMPP interfaces.
Looks like no more slack for me!
@kaniini not sure if they ever "embraced" IRC. I would have been using it very rarely if I didn't have IRC gateway. There were also opinions on the net that Slack was the only thing pulling nerds off #IRC , but I think that trend might have stopped.
Fortunately #freenode is going strong
@kaniini yes, it's a centrally managed network, not a casual IRC one. But maybe I can live with that (as an alternative of it going down completely).
@saper @kaniini VPN companies are greasy as fuck
@calvin @kaniini yeah, looking forward to community to buy freenode out
