Default Freenode staff exodus to new IRC chat channel: Libera.chat

From https://libera.chat/ :

Welcome to Libera Chat
19th May 2021 by staff

We’re excited to announce the launch of Libera.Chat, and welcome you to a next-generation IRC network for free and open source software projects and similarly-spirited collaborative endeavours.

Most of our staff have joined us from freenode, and we intend to continue its legacy. It was a privilege to provide the FOSS world with a collaborative platform.
Because Freenode is being commercialized, many of the staff left and started https://libera.chat/

See https://gist.github.com/joepie91/df8...6ba018af497409 for more background info.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

#OpenBSD is on irc.libera.chat, which is good for me. I do not know if #OpenBSD is still on freenode.

About a year+ ago, Freenode would not allow me to connect when using a VPN, odd. It was allowed but all of a sudden I could not connect. irc.libera.chat is allowing me to connect when the VPN is active, so that reason alone I moved over.
