Hello

Preface: this post could be a repetition of old ones, I tried a search but I didn't found any. In case it is an old and already closed argument of discussion, I apologize.

Days ago I read a post where they said that the heavy load on perlmonks.org is due in a somewhat large part by a lot of people reloading the page to refresh the chatterbox.

Searching around the monastery I also read about the #perlmonks channel on irc.slashnet.org and of a couple of efforts to interface the chatterbox to an IRC server

And I asked myself: why have a webchat that generates high load and efforts in interfacing it to IRC when we could do the opposite?

I mean: why not having all the chat where it is supposed to be, on IRC, and having it replicated on the web but without the possibility of posting via web?

Ciao!

In reply to chatterbox causes heavy load? So why don't switch to IRC? by bronto
