A collection of resources I've found, and snippets of information I've learned, that I want to save so I don't have to search for them again later.

This repo represents a collection of resources I've collected over my years working with computers. I've found that repeatedly I'll have a problem, search long and hard for the solution, find the solution, implement the solution, and then promptly forget what the solution was, and more importantly, where I found it. So I decided to start compiling my findins in a single location, so that hopefully I can save myself some redundant re-researching time in the future. Maybe there's something in here you'll find useful. Feel free to use it! And if you see something you think is important to have in a collection like this that is missing, throw me a pull request or throw it into the issue tracker! Enjoy!

Limechat -- Awesome Mac IRC client

ZNC -- Advanced IRC Bouncer

I found that I could set up ZNC and get connected to it, but it would not connect to any servers. After some research, I now assume that my VPS host was blocking IRC traffic (as most hosts do, claiming security issues). I set it up with SSL access to ZNC, and SSL access to the servers to which I wanted to connect, on port 6697, which is a common, but non-official, IRC SSL port. Working fine now.
