Hi Guys

Haven't been able to access the 172.16.1.1 site for some time now, is it down at the moment or has it been moved somewhere?

Thanks

JohnB

If you'd ever bothered to join the IRC channel, the Official medium of communication for Jawug, you would have noticed that the topic of #jawug contains a link to a Network Notices page.

On this page, it tells you that 172.16.1.1 is offline.

Your my hero Daffy.

Why is it such a secret then? Could be an idea to put something saying that the "official form of communication for the wug is the IRC" in the getting started section of the web site, and maybe make a sticky saying this in the forums as well.

What? Do you mean like here? http://www.jawug.org.za/IRC_(Internet_Relay_Chat)

Or how about when you came on IRC to ask for an IP address.

Perhaps a little more community participate on your part would be to your advantage.
Jawug isn't just about getting connected and then forgetting about it. You're supposed to be involved.

EVERYONE should be on the IRC Servers.
If anything happens, thats where people know about it, thats where it gets announced.

No, I mean that if it is your main form of communication then maybe you should say that on the WUG site.

If you expect everyone to know it then perhaps you should mention it in the "getting started" part of the WUG web site and not hide it away in the IRC section of the Jawug site.

Also, maybe you should change the forum/support heading if you don't expect people to post messages asking what is happening.
