GeekShed’s BNC Service

GeekShed no longer offers it’s BNC Service, it has come to an end.

What is a BNC?

‘BNC’ is the abbreviated form of the word ‘Bouncer’. It is a software programme which connects to the IRC network for you. In turn,
you can connect and disconnect from the BNC as you please. All this time the BNC will stay connected to IRC and you can ‘attach’ and ‘detach’ yourself from it with no visible sign being given on IRC.

What are other methods?

  • Quassel IRC   is a modern, cross-platform, distributed IRC client, meaning that one (or multiple) client(s) can attach to and detach from a central core — much like the popular combination of screen and a text-based IRC client such as WeeChat, but graphical. 
  • WeeChat Full-featured IRC plugin: multi-servers, proxy support, IPv6, SASL authentication, nicklist, DCC, and many other features.


Have a great day on GeekShed ;-)
