Unable to connect server irc.freenode.net port 6667 [Name or service not known]

all my irc clients are giving me that, on any of the half dozen ports freenode does.  even ones from different computers, even computers physically located in other countries.   over 12 hours its been like this.  briefly had issues connecting to irc.oftc.net too, but i seem to be back on it.

oh, seems i can get on http://wastedartist.com/distros/witch/witchat.html ... so long as i get past the clickjacking warning noscript now gives me for that (~dodgey bastid webhost company).


just been informed irc.freenode.net is getting ddos'd.   gurr.
