Slack?

Recommended Posts

I thought I would try out slack since I'm in a van, in transit, and can't sleep and the irc server seems to be broken.

https://pongball.slack.com

So I made a slack team.  The name can be changed if need be.  If you want an invite, pm/dm me your email address.

Same channel?

My connection is not incredibly stable with the travelling btw.

Yep! That's another server on foonetic's network that someone just connected successfully through.

Oh, sorry. On foonetic's network! I'm so used to typing freenode that I do it unconsciously. The link to webchat was correct though >_<

I've done a little testing with slack and there are a few nice things I've found.

One: you can pm or do group chat and can make channels based upon specific discussions.

Two: it automatically keeps your message history up to a number of messages.

Three: it will actually tell you how behind or ahead a person is according to their timezone

Four: they have a really nice android app with a nice interface and notofications.  

So far I've only  been able to connect to irc briefly, but slack seems to be asynchronous so I don't need to maintain a constant connection.

At the very least, I feel like it would make a good backup option.
