The server is not answering, so you will need to try again later.
Try another server on that Network, if it still does not answer.

Yes, that is it. Socket Error 10060 means you have a name that cannot resolve.

So, like I said, go find another server name, like irc.sephiroth.org.uk .
And double make sure you have spelled the name right.
