Do any of you IRC fans know of a way that I can view a channels chat history since its creation? Assuming nobody in the channel has a full log to share, is there any way or service out there that I still might be able to get the full log with/from?
I've never heard of a server that logs or a service where logs are available. Your best bet is to talk to people in the channel and see if anyone has logs to share. Though the average person that logs isn't on 24/7/365 since a channel formed.
I can say I've only had a 95.9% uptime since 2011 (I made a script to track that).
