bitcoincore review – How do I set up IRC bouncer to receive messages and follow the discussion while I am offline?

On some IRC channels such as #bitcoin-core-dev there are third party managed conversation logs so you can follow the conversation from when you were offline without setting up a bouncer. However, I don’t think (at the time of writing, September 2020) that there are conversation logs for the #bitcoin-core-pr-reviews channel except for the weekly meeting which is logged on the Bitcoin Core PR review club site. You definitely can’t receive messages whilst you are offline.

There are various options to set up a bouncer but in the interests of simplicity I will just outline one assuming you followed the instructions here to install Textual on MacOS.

You will need a virtual private server (VPS) to be running 24/7 to log the discussion and receive messages on your behalf and then you can connect to that server whenever you come back online. This will require a monthly subscription.

So your first step is to choose a VPS provider. One easy to use option is Digital Ocean but there are others that perform the same function and will be equivalently priced. (We generally avoid product recommendations on this site so please excuse this counterexample.) You can connect directly to your VPS/Digital Ocean Droplet using the instructions here. There is a tutorial for setting up SSH keys here.

Once you have set up your VPS you will need to install ZNC on that server. Instructions for doing that are here.

Instructions for connecting your Textual client to the ZNC bouncer are here.

How do I join the Bitcoin Core PR review club meetings on IRC?

I would like to learn about reviewing Bitcoin Core pull requests at the Bitcoin Core PR review club. How do I join the ##bitcoin-core-pr-reviews channel on IRC and which IRC client do you recommend I install?

I can use the command line but I would prefer to maximize convenience and minimize setup time.

KIWI IRC: How to log chats?

For using IRC, I’m using KIWI IRC as it is not possible to install MIRC or any other installable program.

The link/documentation can be found here: https://kiwiirc.com/

However, I cannot find how to log chats, I’m not sure if it is even possible.
So my questions are:

  • Is it possible to log chats?
  • If so, how to enable this feature?

Does anyone use IRC?

So, does anyone here use or still use? IRC (Internet Relay Chat)?

I just started using it earlier today and I like it a lot. Even if he's old, I still like him and I can see him use it a lot.

What's up?

Can I use an irc chat room to transmit my game commands?

I am programming a (type of) multiplayer text game.

There are combats step by step.
In fact, I use an irc external chat room to send and receive commands for these battles.

My question is:
Does an irc chat room discard some text if there are too many at once?
Is there a technical limit with respect to the number of people in a chat room?

Any suggestions are welcome.

linux – How does an irc demon work like Charybdis?

I'm fairly new to irc, and I'm rummaging through it to try to understand it.

I am running CentOS 7 on a virtual machine, and I have installed charybdis-4.1.1 and atheme-7.2.10-r2, using this wonderful guide. However, although the guide does a fantastic job of telling me how to install it, it does not really tell me how it works, which is my goal in doing this.

What I had in mind was to configure a server and search it under the guidance of an online tutorial. However, I really could not find any online material that explains how certain files work. I tried reading the documentation page on github, but it also does not tell me how it works.

I understand that most people use irc clients instead of installing and maintaining a server, which may be part of the reason why I could not find any material. So … would a kind soul help me give a description of how Does this work? Or maybe provide a link to some tutorial on charybdis? Thank you!!
