Alternate Freenode port: 8000


This advice comes from Dan Scott:

Looks like those at code4libcon who are blocked from port 6667 can access irc.freenode.net on port 8000 (assuming that you have successfully logged into your privileged account with UGA).

The crazy login interface at http://bluesocket.georgiacenter.uga.edu/login.pl, by the way, requires you to:

enter the email address you signed up for the conference with
enter CODE4LIB as the password
get a “password must be changed error”
click “Change password”
wait one minute, then enter your new password and password confirmation

It took me about five attempts before I got the timing and set of steps right. But I eventually got it to work.
