IRC6 - IRC and IPv6

What is it, really?

IRC6 is about connecting to IRC with the next-generation IP-protocol, IPv6. It is intended for the technically minded to purport the interesting possibilities of riding a new wave of IP, in a network mostly still consisting of IPv4 servers.

The project had its highlight in 1999, when the first-ever production-stage IRC6 server was featured on IRCnet by Project IRC6 of Europe. This resulted in a movement for more rapid evolution and evaluation of IPv6 services by IRC-users, which can still be seen as a rather interesting effect of the nature of competition in advances in technology...

IPv6 What? How? Where?
