Among Internet Relay Chat (IRC) users, a split is a condition where two or more IRC servers are temporarily unable to communicate. When a split occurs between two computers on IRC, each seems to have gone offline to the other. The condition is usually temporary. It can be caused by a packet route timing out, a server rebooting, or a similar circumstance.
