    Default IRC Channel.

    For contact purposes, or just to hang with some other StopTazmo goer's in general, I'm inviting all of you to a StopTazmo IRC channel that I've had running for some time now. Drop on by sometime, we are always up to no good and everyone here with two braincells to bang together is welcome to join us. Be warned, if you go there to cause trouble or to innundate the mods who frequent the place with trash talk or the like, it will not be tolerated. Please exercise respect in the channel. Thanks in advance.

    Server - irc.rizon.net
    Channel - #HolySentinels

    P.S. If you need help getting on to IRC, here is my IRC Guide. It should give you all the information you need to get started on Internet Relay Chat.

    Post Post Script: If you ever see a hilarious conversation, or notice that shit is hitting the fan, be sure to turn on logging (as discussed in my guide) and copy down what's said and post it here in the Holy Sentinels Thread.

    BTW, I am considering writing a more indepth guide on FSERVES. If you think it's worth the time, go ahead and answer that poll, so I can get an idea of how many of you bother with people's fserves on IRC. (You know, when someone goes "!list" in a channel, and gets a list of people who have anime ready for download.)
    Dear cousin choppitychop89, you were a good relative, though I hardly knew ye.

    When I used to be an IrcOp (somewhere in the IRC World), I was used to say that fservers are lame and that IRC is good to chit-chatting, not to download stuff.
    Now that I'm no more an IrcOp (and I refuse to surf IRC again), I simply repeat the same words as before, and therefore I suggest you downloaders to use BitTorrent and/or direct links.
    That's the way I do, by the way.

    Yeah, we'd already had this conversation before.

    IRC is good for direct transfer. period.
    BT is awesome for broadcasting.

    So, if your model of an anime downloading system is the server and you, alone in the world, IRC is perfect. But if you're not that self-centered and can see that actually there are many other ppl in the world who also wants to/are downloading the same file that you are, then BT is your choice.

    Tell that to fansub groups like shinsen-subs. Their bots serve thousands of people some 30 odd shows at guaranteed speeds of 400 - 600 KBps for broadband users. Works fine for them.

    not at the same time, I guarantee it.
    And even if they serve 1,000 ppl through mirc, they'd serve a million through BT.

    Bots on IRC are awesome to get downloads from. That's how I get ALL my manga needs. (10+ GB and counting...)

    And feel free to pop by! Be nice, and I'll give you voice (and maybe a muffin =D).
