switching to kiwi IRC?

I know most use a dedicated client, but casual users might be more comfortable with the fancy Kiwi IRC.

What do you think if we switch to ?

Also (old argument here) should we call it "Chat" instead of "IRC"?

The Kiwi client looks good! Much better than the current one. I'm in favour of using it.

I don't have much of an opinion about chat vs. IRC. I think it was mentioned in the DT club meeting...

The Kiwi client looks nice, but always tells me "You are banned from #deskthority. Cannot join channel (+b) - you are banned" instead of joining the channel. Joining on the old web client and on Chatzilla works fine, though.

I joined just fine so maybe it's solved already.

I've got ops on the IRC channel, so let me know if you need some help matt3o. I can give you op too if you're registered, but can't add permanent ops to you since I'm not the channel creator.

one op temporarily banned kiwiirc, now it's fine.

I don't think I need op, thanks scottc.
