How long have you been on IRC and where did you start?

How long have you been on IRC and where did you start?

Thought I'd start the initial discussion here. I have been on IRC since Summer of 2000. It was on DALnet in a channel calls #kidz_, can't believe I still remember that!

I started IRC in 2014. I was writing for a few online sites that paid writers to write. One of the sites was called Bubblews. Another was called Elite Writers. While on Elite Writers, anytime I would find a "bug" I would inform the guy that was in charge of taking care of the servers. He eventually created a channel on IRC just for that.

I became friends with the guy and eventually became his partner. My first network was called "FreshChat" with the nickname Christi. Then I moved to other networks like DalNet and Undernet. Then in 2016 I joined Freenode and EvilNet. I no longer join DalNet. I still have a connection on Undernet but I hate it there. I became a staff member on EvilNet and eventually linked my own server.

Around September or October of 2016 I joined Rizon and became a staff member there. I switched nicks on Rizon to Foxy and kept it.

I have been a staff member on several networks. Some never lasted for what ever reason. I have learned so many things while on IRC. So I am grateful I had a chance to be part of this huge community.

I started using IRC on mibbit around January 2020, then ventured of to Rizon and a few other IRC Networks before then starting my own IRC Network(TechNet) on the summer of 2020.

I started being on IRC in 1998, on undernet.
I've created my own french speaking network (zeolia.net) on january 2003 and it's still alive :)

Pretty sure it was back around 2001. Started off with the same network I call "home" today, CyberArmy IRC (or CAIRC as we like to call it). It was the IRC network for a community site that seen lots of ups and downs, somehow the IRC network remained all these years.
I never branched out far from that one network until 2015.

Circa 1996. Was a Services Admin on DALnet for a while back in the 90's. I've done a whole bunch more stuff, but I don't want to sound like I'm bragging.
