Transexual irc chat servers
I've just cleared the ssl_fingerprint in favour of /set weechat.network.gnutls_ca_file "/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt" as per the Arch wiki and have successfully reconnected, but I'll keep an eye on it to make sure it keeps working.
I'm pretty sure I'd set this previously before having successfully connected, and I'm just wondering now if the the previous successful connection with the fingerprint is somehow cached, preventing it from failing.
If you're relatively new to IRC, you should considering starting with a few hacks from each progressive chapter.

If this is your first encounter with Wee Chat then you will want to install at the very least, to make navigating between buffers more pleasant: Do you really need to set ssl_fingerprint with weechat?
Per tradition, people ask Network List from the top menu. My understanding is that weechat will verify certificate chain automatically.
Like all of our Hacks books, there are many different ways to use IRC Hacks.
You can read the book from cover to cover, but you might be better served by picking an interesting item from the table of contents and just diving in.
