IRC logs (Nordicbots) are down
« on: December 01, 2023, 05:21:54 AM »
Hi,

Lix's IRC channel is #lix on irc.quakenet.org, join chat in your browser or use a dedicated IRC client.

The logs are usually at Nordicbots, but the logs are are down. I have seen that error, "At least one service is unavailable at the moment. Please try again later.", several times this year, I don't know if the logs have been up in the meangime.

Also, the logging bot, named Lovely, isn't sitting in #lix. I don't remember when he was there for the last time. From my client-side log, the latest entry for Lovely has been:

2023-08-22 22:42:11 * |Lovely| has quit (Ping timeout)

The following two bots are unrelated to logging: Bot Q is for nickname authentication; to have owner rights and operator rights on #lix, I have to be registered with Q. Bot __ (two underscores) is Mindless's relaying bot for forum posts from Lemmings forums.

I haven't investigated more than this.

Flopsy wanted to catch me on IRC, and worried about how the logs were offline.

On Mon, 2023-11-20, Flopsy caught me late at night. We chatted about how to onboard new players for Lix multiplayer, or if the sessions became too one-sided with maps too experimental.

Flopsy is working on a multiplayer strategy guide. There will be pictures to make it easy to follow. And there will be a comedy section with excerpts from multiplayer:

<Flopsy> 10 instances of Icho picking on me for example
<Flopsy> 24 times Icho says "Ohhhhh Simonnnn"
<Flopsy> 14 times where geoo rants about blockers




These days, I sleep from 22:00 local time to 06:00 local time. I've been shifting the rhythm forward for a week -- I used to get up at 02:00 or 03:00 -- and it's finally back in line with normal people; I should stop shifting my rhythm forward.

On Thu, 2023-11-30, Silken caught me after I got up at 06:00 local time, and we played 2-player Lix.

minim, mobius, Rubix: Silken likes the Lix music. Thanks for submitting your music for Lix!

Silken shared a Lix logo in style of Lemmings Mobile and a single lix in that style from 5 years ago. Nice! I don't know who made it.

No news on the Nordicbots website. But on joining their IRC channel, one gets these news:

Topic for #Nordicbots is: Things aren't looking good. Harddisks _and_ backups have been encrypted by a crypto locker. Sorry. Looking into it.
Topic for #Nordicbots set by Q (Wed Aug 23 00:41:59 2023)

That August 23rd matches the date of my last sight of the logging bot, August 22nd.
