Fuzix for ESP8266 now has all the other bits filled in and since there just about enough GPIO lines it also supports TCP/IP via a WizNET 5500. Yes you can irc on an ESP8266.

@pronto At the moment it maps the various Wiznet chips to the kernel socket API. There is a somewhat messy interface to use uIP but that needs resurrecting after I changed the core network interfaces. For the 8bit platforms the TCP/IP is very much a work in progress because of the memory requirements

Still, I can't imagine a computer without the ability to exchange data over the network. It can be ppp or something else, but there must be a way to send e-mail ;-)

Maybe it would be possible to use only TCP without UDP or any other ideas?

@pronto There was email long before TCP/IP - Look up UUCP
