This is a heads up for everyone who visits these chat rooms. Java still works fine as far as i can tell, but mIRC users will need to switch servers.
For mIRC users, open up your chat as normal. You will not be able to connect until you do the following:
Got to "Tools" and then "Options". Under the "Catergory:" section on the left side of the box under the "Connect" heading, highlight the folder named "Servers", and click the "Add" button at the right. In the new box that pops up type in a short description of the server in the Description box, "Gamechat" for instance. In the "IRC Server" box type "irc.otherworlders.org", and in the "Ports" box type "6667", which is the #greytalk channel. There is no need to enter anything under the "Group" box. Enter a pasword if you wish, and then click "Add".
That should fix your problem and you should be able to restart mIRC and get into the chatrooms. Access the channel list as normal to join a specific chatroom.
My thanks to Daigle who helped me a bit with my own switchover. Hope this helps somebody else.
