Description

I download IRC-5 from ASLO to run on my XO 1.5 (Build 203). It sat trying to "join" but never joined. There was no feedback to the user and no indication in the log file as to what the problem might be. At the same time, I was able to connect o IRC with another computer, so it was not a connectivity issue.

Could we provide better feedback to the user? Perhaps a message triggered by a timeout?

  • Type changed from enhancement to defect

Categorizing this as a defect; there should definitely be feedback for a failed connection. I'm working on the IRC activity as part of the RIT HFOSS class; this is one of the first I am going to tackle.
