Re: Not welcome on IRC?

gimp.org really seems to be more about open source software projects, almost every channel there is for one. There has been some discussion now about maybe moving to freenode or foonetic. Still hanging on #lhcportal on efnet for now.

Re: Not welcome on IRC?

gimp.org works for me :) It will be nice to have an ircop around that's actually on our side. Has a more 'open source'ish feel than EFNet I suppose.

So you're staff there, do you work on GIMP itself?

Re: Not welcome on IRC?

All the lhcportal crew (and maybe some others?) were kicked. Orion was posting some physics info about baryons, fermions and electron volts, then we were all kicked. I don't think it was for anything specific, just the overall tone of us amateurs. like I said I think it's been coming for a while now.

Not welcome on IRC?

There's been some drama on the irc channel lately, with 'igor' getting banned and some hostile topics. Today we were pretty much all kicked out - I take it that #lhc isn't Xymox's channel and they don't really appreciate us hanging out there? At any rate, I propose we start #lhcportal instead. I'm i...

Hi hi hi there

I'm just an Internet traveller who came across #lhc on EFNet one day and thought I'd see what was shaking in the particle physics world. I only know some high school physics and what I've picked up here and there but I'm keen to learn more about the LHC and its quarks and quirks.
