Welcome to Retro Projects IRC Network

Greetings and welcome to RetroNode, an IRC haven for all your retro projects! The name should remind you awfully of freenode. That's right, we deliberately came up with something resembling that to give you the good old "nodey" vibe. Would you like to learn more about it? For now enjoy your stay, feel free to create and re-create channels (that is, if you are coming from freenode and/or Libera.Chat) but do take your time to read our rules, please.

Quickstart Guideline

To connect to an IRC network you obviously need a client. It is not really our job to pick an IRC client for you, you can find all the information you need on the web. Still, if we were to choose a client today, then we would go either for irssi or HexChat. One is superlight and minimalistic, the other boasts advanced functionality and is considerably more user-friendly. Both are available for both Windows and *nix. If you wish to connect to us immediately just issue /server irc.retronode.org +6697 in your client and off you go!


Sep 20, 2023 • netsplit.de
We are now registered on netsplit.de!
Sep 15, 2023 • New server!
We now have a complementary server sosaria.retronode.org, thanks to BrainChild!

P. S. It may still have small issues with SSL (self-signed certificate), but we are working on it.
Sep 1, 2023 • Happy Birthday, RetroNode!
