IRC - internet relay chat. Hardly anyone uses it anymore, at least compared to its popularity in the mid to late 90s, hence my original question.

So what are the IRC rules? And is dieselgate or off-topic stuff, such as that on threadzilla, discussed?

Now I need to find a good CLI IRC client for Linux or Solaris...

Dieselgate isn't talked about that much, the channel is largely off-topic (but TDI discussion certainly happens) - a past slogan (and /topic) for the channel was "20% TDI, 110% WT*" (annoyingly, whiskey tango foxtrot is censored on these forums). Some of us don't even own TDIs any more.

There's also a few other channels on the same server, #ev being a channel for discussion of electric and electrified vehicles (which a few of us either own or have deposits on).

And as far as CLI clients, the big ones nowadays are irssi and weechat. Run in a tmux for maximum fun! (Or just use a znc instance to stay connected - I use both a znc and tmux+irssi for reasons. And I find screen to be unreliable.) Or, if you want to go for maximum Unix, there's always ii.

Is the chat down forever? No matter what machine I use the chat part of the web just DOES NOT WORK.

The web chat does appear to be down, but you can directly connect using an IRC client, using the information on that page.
