Help - homeless #channel

The IRC network that my friends and I hang around in while we should be working seems to have gone down, and so far shows no sign of coming back. Any suggestions for a reliable medium sized network with services? The last time I used IRC before the network I was on (chat-solutions, due to them hosting AICN's channel) was in '95, and I really haven't kept up.

Updated July 14, 12:40: That was quick. We're sorted for today, at least. Suggestions still appreciated.

The Culture IRC channel is on irc.shadowfire.org, and that's usually proven quite reliable. It would have the advantage of Culturnik / Cloudmaker(?) cross-pollination too.

http://www.irctoo.net/ is remarkably stable, with services and some rather intelligent ircops (if you ever need one of those). It was originally formed by a faction in DALnet once that started going down the pan, but slowly keeps on growing - both in users and servers.

You're probably well-established now anyway, but hey... server hub is irc.irctoo.net, perhaps unsurprisingly.
