I cant seem to access the chat... i keep saying that i don't have permission to Join #oolite on irc.oftc.net :/
Also it blocks mibbit which is the only client that really works on my computer all the others dont work because of my network :/

Why cant i access it with mibbit? I would really like to start chatting on irc.
Sorry it has taken me few days to notice this but OFTC network has banned Mibbit exit nodes from the network. The reason is given here: www.oftc.net/Mibbit

Apologies for my current absence from DS's.
Unfortunately my computer went bang - well a doughnut-shaped thingy in the PSU did anyway. New one is on the way so hopefully I'll be up and running in a couple of days.
To tide me over I've had to go back to retro-computing hell, and pulled my ten plus years old? computer out of the cupboard. Nothing to love about it (single-core Celeron processor, XP Home and IE6) but at least it works so I can look in here and grab emails (yes, with Outlook Express!).

<pleading>Please hurry up, new PSU, I need you!</pleading>

In my case, it's the nut in front of the keyboard :)

Seems to be the season for PSUs blowing. Mine went last Monday. Currently using a Hudl until the replacement comes.

Yes, in all fairness it is OK. I've used the built-in Opera mail client for 6-7 years now (which is very different in some ways), so it just seems a bit, well odd. :)

I myself quite like (or perhaps have just got used to) Thunderbird. (I use a de-Metrofied Windows 8.1.) That is perhaps because of all the (desktop) e-mail clients I have tried, or at least found tolerable, I find it the most like Outlook Express. That said, I've moved just now from Office 2003 to Office '365' (/'2013') and it has Outlook (the full version) included. So I might try that. Still: getting Outlook to work (at all) seems a bit difficult (and I had a load of hassle getting Word 365 to work too; unbelievable - or rather typical for Microsoft).

Relatedly (and if I am not going on too much) does anyone have any tips for speeding up text input in Word 365 / 2013, aside from disabling hardware acceleration, animation and the sub-pixel positioning thing? (None of those seem to help much/enough on my computer, although using a program called Process Lasso to treat Word as a game (!) may be helping somewhat.) I'd be grateful for any advice!

Hooray! The computer is fixed :)
Just logged on to DS's - good to see the place is as peaceful as always :P

Having trouble with this after being away so long...

When I attempt to connect, I can attach to irc.oftc.net, but I get the following message:
[13:36] NickServ!services@services.oftc.net NOTICE Cmd_Cheyd :This nickname is registered and protected. If it is your nickname, you may
[13:36] -NickServ- authenticate yourself to services with the IDENTIFY command. You are
[13:36] -NickServ- getting this message because you are not on the access list for the
[13:36] -NickServ- Cmd_Cheyd nickname.

It won't let me pull up a Channel list or do much of anything else... Anyone know what's up with this? Did I forget a setting I need to provide?

The channel shows that you were connected for 3 minutes between 20.05 and 20.08 UK time. Have you tried authenticating the name?
You need to type in (without the quotes) "/nickserv IDENTIFY yourpassword"
This assumes you remember your password of course :P
That might sort it out.
