I've had my ASUS RT-N16now for YEARS! and to this day I still love it like crazy, actually pretty nutty how long I've run it for now.
Anyway I did teh awesome fun stuff of configuring a non-root user that I log into all the time and do what it is I need to do. This is generally re-connecting my previous screen session which runs Irssi my IRC session.
I attempted to connect to the efnet network to see what was new with a couple guys in the channels there (my normal area is freenode which connects without issue).
What I find is everytime I goto conect to efnet it will spit out "Only Idiots run as root" "BANNED, don't run as root". But my screen session and runnign of irssi I do as my non-root users.
What's going on here and how do I fix it?
