LIVE Bimmerfest Chat

Due to recent problems with IRCnet, we are moving IRC servers to one of my servers.

Server: irc.enpriva.com
Port : 6667

There is also a new web-based client that I've installed at:
http://irc.enpriva.com

This should be a significant improvement over using IRCnet, with reduced server lag and a more stable web-based IRC client among other new features.

Alex: Could you update the instructions on where to connect in the first post?

Thanks Alee

I just logged in but instead of "Melissa" (said it was in use), I went with "Mlis" and it worked. Be sure to put the # before bimmerfest.

I can'y seem to get back there now either, but I can email you a copy of the latest mIRC program

but IMO it's a waste of effort unless you know exactly what you're doing, not very user-friendly or at least it did me no good
