The Stars! player's channel has just completed moving from its longtime home of #Stars! on Starlink to ##Stars! on Freenode.

A toast! To Starlink.org, our home for over a decade.

To celebrate a new beginning and a new year, we will be having a blitz on New Year's Day 2010 at 18:00 GMT (10:00am Pacific for USsies).

Blitzes are fast-running games featuring small universes, 5-10 minute timers, and forced generations until 2440 or 2460, depending. Fights tend to start early, and be rather fierce.

We'll be running our usual tiny packed, acc-bbs, public scores universe, with 4 turn gens to 20, 2 to 40, and 1 thereafter, so make sure you're loaded for bear. If you're new to IRC, I suggest coming in early so you can get file transfer issues and whatnot sorted out before the start time.

To join, fire up an IRC client, such as mIRC, Chatzilla, or Trillian, connect to chat.freenode.net and join the channel ##Stars! (note the two hash marks and the exclamation point at the end). People tend to idle here, so responses may take some time, especially if you're between when the USsies arrive home and the Euros wake up.

I hope to see you there!

Jesus saves.
Allah forgives.
Cthulhu thinks you'd make a nice sandwich.
