my uni blocks the IRC protocol and all related ports so a normal IRC client like mIRC doesn't work. after a little searching around i found a workable solution:

<a href='http://cgiirc.sourceforge.net' target='_blank'>http://cgiirc.sourceforge.net</a>

if you know how to install CGI scripts and have a website w/ CGI enabled (and if it doesn't violate your AUP), this is a decent solution. i've been using it for a while now and it works pretty well. it doesn't have all the bells and wistles and is a bit lagged but its great if you really need to get on IRC. you can also let your friends use it.

if you need help installing it or don't know if you are able to use it, reply here or send me an email.

good ol sourceforge.
guess possibly one of the most important, does it support DCC ;)

Anyhow, I might drop this onto the site for accessing the TBM irc channel, cant be bad :D

no DCC.. imagine the bandwidth usage of multiple users transferring files simultaneously over the server!! my 1 gb/month would be gone pretty quick. it would be cool though if you have the bandwidth

true, but surely w/ a port redirect they could do it as if your downloading the file from an internet server (ie keeping the direct connect and the recieving client connect in from port 80 to the client sending the file? not sure how this fits in with the mirc spec or the way this proggy works, but it shouldn't be impossible.

well, guess this is going to have to get installed here, just started a CCNA course and no irc on their machines, so I guess its the best way to idle.
