mIRC constantly unable to connect to Netgamers (or anything else)

Probably not the right place to put this, but since PA people are the only ones I know that use mIRC I'll fire away.

As of about 2 or 3 days ago, I noticed I wasn't logged onto mIRC. The comp shuts down to update stuff at night and normally everything works fine the next morning.

However, I noticed mIRC was continuously unable to connect to Netgamers. I tried other networks, and had the same result: "unable to resolve server". Interwebs are up and running (typing this now, as mIRC fails again to connect) so that's not a problem. I've also not changed any security settings or otherwise, so that doesn't make any sense.

Help, thoughts, ideas, "lul dlete mirc nub lul" would be welcome.


(for the record, I paid $10 or whatever for a "registered" version of mIRC some years ago).

Not that I care, but the latest EvE "patch" has tried quite hard to burn up my computer and I'm getting bored.

Thanks!

Re: mIRC constantly unable to connect to Netgamers (or anything else)

It's a problem with NetGamers:

2011-06-22 13:02:15 -NetGamers- You've probably seen we're having a few problems this morning. You should connect to netgamers.webvictim.net instead while we get things fixed. If you keep splitting, reconnect to netgamers.webvictim.net and all will be fine.
2011-06-23 17:20:40 -NetGamers- Just a quick update. Things are moving forward with getting netgamers.org back online, but we have no timescale yet. In the meantime please tell your friends to use netgamers.webvictim.net in place of irc.netgamers.org

irc.lunarlamp.co.uk might also be worth a try.

What can I say, I'm simple the single most helpful and selfless person on these forums.

Re: mIRC constantly unable to connect to Netgamers (or anything else)

w3nnk your question had already been answered in this thread - I know some people have a reluctance to search old threads for answers to questions but it was the third f*cking post in this one and there were only 9 to read through including the OP.

Jeezo.

Re: mIRC constantly unable to connect to Netgamers (or anything else)

Having randomly decided to join irc for the first time in two years, I assumed the servers had changed when it didn't work! However after a quick search here I found mz's suggestion to use: irc.lunarlamp.co.uk, worked nicely... thanks...
