Hi every one.
This article is a shot gun article. So apologize (or thank) because of its size.
In that peculiar covid19 period, when all those ones, students and workers forced to stay home use and abuse of the network, the use of Saas tools to help continuing working from home has exploded.
Platforms like Slack, Teams or Discord are overwhelmed. But still work.
Reading some news saying that Teams, or the CNED educational platform in France were down for a time I decided to write a little help using the IRC in order to lighten some services or help continuing working if some were down.
Some may think that the IRC was dead... definitely not !
If you are stuck with some of your favorite service, here is a presentation that may help :
Hope this helps.
