Cool kids use bash and telnet to send each other messages directly :ghost:

You are free to build and maintain a bidirectional bridge bot, though :P
Hmm...reminds me of the xkcd...

You know there's a portable version for discord, right? :shifty:

In this case, portable = it can be ported to whatever platform you want
For example, Saoirse is running on python on a Raspberry Pi 2 that's running Kodi.
Anyone can write an IRC client for whatever platform and OS they want, because the protocol is open and fairly simple to use. You can't do that with discord as it's closed source and proprietary.

And bots are more of a pain in the arse on discord.

No, Discord runs IN a Javascript browser. Good luck writing your own client for it. :P
Whereas IRC runs on everything that has an internet connection.
(And is a lot lighter)

Discord is available at mine, but IRC is not. :V

But then I just connect to a server outside the network and don't care either way. :3

It runs on packets. Like all network things. It's easy enough to simulate a server or client if you know enough about the packets.
And Javascript lends itself to explaining all its packets. :V

Using that logic, you can write a client for multiplayer DOOM (new one) in Javascript.
Good luck with that :ghost:

True. :lol:

But yeah, I know that you could get IRC running on a potato (well, not exactly, but you get the metaphor) and Discord is just a cool and sleek replacement of the old and trusty (and nearly never updated) Teamspeak. :D

Discord is hardly a replacement for Teamspeak. It's a relatively different function.
I am literally and wholly in love with myself.
