How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love IRC

In response to where committers should roam, Eclipse developers raised concerns about accessing IRC behind corporate firewalls. Well, I found somewhat of a solution: IRC@Work.

How about that, don’t think corporations can block port 80.

    I’m opposed to the ‘pipe everything through port 80’ mentality when it comes to bypassing corporate firewalls. I understand it completely, but on the other hand, if corporations prevent their employees from accessing specific types of information or services, then they must have their reasons.

    Denis:
    The pipe everything through port 80 serves two purposes:
    – making thing available through a familiar web interface
    – working around stupid corporate policies forced on us by the work prevention department
