There is also chat.ap.freenode.net, for Asia. Maybe that
works. The reason I proposed trying a proxy is to check
whether some the problem is rooted in international IP blockage.
HuiHuang missed a slash before '/join' when trying to use
the proxy. I have followed up privately because with a mail
containing better more precise information on using the proxy,
and the new proxy password.
Don't worry, we'll get him connected to the chat eventually :)
