    Perhaps they're having DNS issues. Seems I can't `dig` irc.slashnet.org or any of the usual distributed hosts.

    Logged in the other day and there were only me and an OP in the #vc channel. That have never happened before. So what's going on, have everyone moved to some other server or something?

    It says there are 36 people in the channel right now, mind you at any time only five are not idling.
    Perhaps you connected to a server that was in a netsplit?

    There was definitely a netsplit yesterday ... I think that spaniels.slashnet.org was isolated, so if you hit that server you get just that one lonely user.

    The load balancing is done using DNS. Just disconnect and try again until you get to a server that is not isolated/siloed.

    Thanks, netsplit was a new thing to me - never heard of that before. Conected again this evening and the channel had more or less the usual crowd!
