in reply to [OT] most popular irc client in monks

If you were using xchat, your best bet is to use hexchat. xchat stopped active maint in 2010. By that time the people that maintained the Windows version forked of to hexchat, which is OpenSource (no payments needed for the Windows build) and very actively maintained.

I use hexchat with the #cbstream channel on freenode to follow PerlMonks.

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    Rightfully so, except HEXCHAT has stupid defaults. Enabled /amsg. When asked to parse quiet list in a channel, they /removed/ the key words, making the output for ban and quiet entry identical. I would envision such idiotic development model, even if they manage to convince that xchat is unmaintained, to not end successfully.

    You can see XCHAT commits at sourceforge. It is also stupid and you have to wait a while for them to load. Last commit was in July 2013. LifeIsPain is still active at XCHAT's channel. Everything I need to fix I can get into the tree as the relevant people are around.

[stevieb]: choroba my GPS home device is done, at least prototype v1 is. I'm just making sure all of my code does what it says now
[stevieb]: I test/prototype code on my Pi, then I migrate it over to Arduino when it's ready (if that's a better platform for what I'm doing). The whole RPi stuff was for learning at first, then it snowballed. I'm just trying to get my in-house CI...
[stevieb]: ...done, which obviously requires a specific hardware setup.
[stevieb]: I don't write tests for the lower-level distributions (ie. ICs, sensors etc) within those distributions, I have all tests in a master distribution which encompasess all of the sub-modules
