French IRC channel migration
« on: 11:17, 27 May 21 »

Established in the early 2000s with CPCScene.com (now disappeared), the French IRC channel dedicated to the CPC is one of the few services that have survived.


The #cpc-fr channel was hosted on the IRC Freenode network. However, the recent takeover of this network by an untrusted personality triggers doubts about its upcoming independence and personal data management. For this reason, channel #cpc-fr was moved to the brand new IRC Libera.Chat network (https://libera.chat).


Server: irc.libera.chat
Channel: #cpcfr

Freenode! Now that's a name I hadn't heard in a while...

Thanks for the links. Sad ending for a historical provider...
