The UGN Security IRC (Internet Relay Chat) Discussion Forum is housed on the FreeNode Network. FreeNode consists of services located in various parts of the world, primarily in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
We strive to provide a free, legal, safe, friendly, spam free, simple discussion forum for your everyday use.
The UGN Security IRC Discussion Forum is the home to many different types and genera's of chat rooms. Some channels specialize in a set topic, whereas some are completely off topic and open to discussions of any type. FreeNode is also the home for many official chats for several websites and computer groups. No matter what you're in to, we're sure you'll find a channel to fit you.
You can chat now on our IRC Network by using our Live Chat. If you're a more experienced user, you can download an IRC Client and connect to irc.undergroundnews.com.
FreeNode offers nickname and channel registration, thus giving users the ability and right to protect their online experience without the fear of a channel takeover, impersonation, or harassment.
FreeNode openly welcomes new channels to their network, it doesn't matter if they're already established with a large and solid user base, or brand new and haven't yet gathered a following. The network is also compatible with any web-based IRC clients, such as pJIRC.
All of our staff are volunteers who devote themselves to the good of the network and its users. Our staff is always more than willing to answer all of your questions and help you enjoy your time on the IRC Discussion Forum.
