Game 80 Finale Chat Report

I thought tonight's Finale GDT Chat was one of the worst.

We had a good first period, not much swearing, a lot of Yays and only a couple of "WFT's?" ....but then we fell part in the Second, -making too many "fire Hitchcock" comments, and questioning various players' manhood. After Skraut got carjacked on his way through Syracuse as he posted from the road, it was downhill from there. (Note: we went 0-3 with Skraut posting from vacation, coincidence?).

In the 3rd it just got ugly. We were missing the telestrator which is always good for a dozen or so lines of chat relief. People started watching TV and chatting at 3-2. Went out for food at 4-2. Viq quit to watch soccer (how desperate). Psy and I stopped arguing (it was that bad). And when we got down 5-2 -even putting my pants back on didn't work (thanks Kallio for the crappy advice )

Hopefully Macserv can get us some new chat software next year. The out-of-town, out of work, teenagers without tickets, and "basement-living" Blue Jacket fans deserve better.

Thanks macnashhater.
For those who don't know, 'auto-voice' is chat code for "must post from car because wife won't let people from cbj chat in the house"

For those who don't know, Jf is Nash's mommy. She loves him very much, and he's a good boy.

No, the server is having issues. More than one server seems to be affected.

FTR: Sam deleted my "perceived rules of the GD Chat."
(ie, "how not to get kicked")

I think, however, that he just didn't like the fact that I revealed he was bi-polar in the chats. Or maybe it was rule 8: "must kiss macserv's butt" ? Perhaps "butt" was a little strong, and I apologize.

Anyway....don't suck in the chats. Come in and talk, don't just drop in for 5 minutes and complain, -that's what the board is for.

Damn, I'm sorry I missed that list... It would probably make rule 8 a lot funnier in context. Suffice to say, kissing my ass will help you not.

I'm not the one who warned him, subsequently kicked him, or finally banned him. Generally speaking, I'll be among the last to do so... that's why I appoint good operators.

The actual rules are very simple and lenient; the penalties are clearly defined. The violation was against rule 1, part c: "Don't be a jerk".

Thanks, Robert... I was actually testing an RSS tracker in the chat, but the RSS feed doesn't keep up with the forum, sadly.

The chat's always a blast... feel free to stop in tomorrow, er, later today

I tried to get into the chat on my iMac at work one day and it wouldn't let me. It kept trying to connect and wouldn't connect. So no chat for me.

Must be blocking the port. Chase did the same thing to me... I used Colloquy on the iPhone (or tethering) to get around that.

Yeah I doubt it could keep up with the boards, but you could throw in my CBJ feed which combines about 30 RSS feeds that mention the Jackets into one feed. That way there would always be news posted in there.

Dropping in the chatroom for a few minutes just to kvetch has been recently identified as the leading cause of kickbans in North America. It's bad for your health.

We exist to try to have fun, either because of or in spite of what's going on on the ice. That's really the whole idea. Conspiracy theories to the contrary, we don't exist to stamp out all negative thought; when things are going poorly, we're just generally feeling annoyed ourselves and don't need the reinforcement. Have FUN, damnit.

Most of the servers allow connecting through ports other than 6667 (I believe vbirc.net and vbirc.com allow 6665-6669, 7000 and 9999). How you do that kind of depends on the client you're using.

If you're using the Java client (if you don't know what a "client" is in this context and you just follow the link, you're using the Java client), it's an absolute royal pain in the a** to get around this because thanks to the way HFBoards has set up their chat system, we can't just provide a helpful link. So, here's what you do:
  1. Follow the rules that macserv gave in post #2 of this thread.
  2. Immediately type "/quit" in the message box and hit Enter. (This just stops it from trying to connect to the server with the wrong port.) The message box is this thing:
  3. Next, type "/server irc.vbirc.com 9999" and hit Enter. This reconnects to the server, using a port that's hopefully not blocked.
  4. If all goes well, you'll be connected to the server and sent to the CBJ chatroom automatically (if you're not sent to the chatroom, try "/join #cbj" after it's connected; it should tell you when). If you're not lucky... well, PM me and I'll try to help.

Hope this helps...
