RE: live chat with other nanog'ers

Having read the foregoing, and as a regular reader of this list, along with
my colleague.

If there are issues regarding channels being locked on a network etc, and
no-one is willing to do something constructive to enable free chat again,
then as my colleague and I also run an Irc network (albeit very small) we
would be more than willing to host a #nanog channel on it, if this would
prove of benefit to the list members etc.. 

Our network is certainly capable of handling in excess of 1500+ chatters at
any one time.

Any one who may be interested in this as a possible solution, please let me
know off-list or discuss amongst yourselves and see what you feel would be
the best solution for you.

well, unfortunately the only way to get the chan dropped and added back 
to us is by going through the steering committee and having one of them 
talk to rob levin, (lilo, [email protected]).
Otherwise Rob is going to lock it and foward it to ##nanog. I have that 
chan, and am perfectly willing to give it up to somebody more involved 
with nanog, but I'm hoping one of the committee members steps in so we 
don't go through some B.S. stuff like lilo likes to do (sorry, bad 
dealings with him from past, ignore my distaste for him)
