IRC is too thin
Matrix is too fat

Why is noone using silc(net)?

I find it hits a good balance...

@sh At least for me it probably has something to do with the fact that SILC clients/servers aren't available in the distros I've used (Debian/Ubuntu/Guix).

I've looked at the website a bit before, sounded kinda interesting, didn't seem like there was a quick way to try it out, never put in the effort to try it.

@jfred Their client is an irssi fork. Back in the day there were a few plugins for other clients around. I didn't look at them because their irssi base clien is pretty much perfect for me.

There are currently 4 people on silcnet. join us :-p
