[Hpr] freenode

In all honesty, the original #oggcastplanet channel on Freenode was rarely
used by the admins even within the last 5 years as far as I could tell (let
alone the oggcasts that used to use it and have faded away), and I've been
on there regularly. I wonder if it's time to just retire the #oggcastplanet
name for the channel and maybe create a #hackerpublicradio channel instead?
Just something to throw out there.

As it is, Freenode is requiring registration and I don't see myself
re-registering for that channel given what's happened with Freenode,
especially since most of the channels I used to idle in on Freenode are now
on Libera or OFTC (Haiku being the only one on the latter). I and others
have tried to get others on the old channel to move over but they don't see
an incentive to do so.
