Book about IRC
17.11.2005

Letter we received:

My name is Frank Baron. I am a writer whose current project is a book about chat. Iíve wandered the IRC corridors for several years and have met some wonderful people and had many great experiences. Iíd like to add othersí opinions and experiences to my own. To that end, Iíve devised a questionnaire that I would like to be made available to as many chatters as possible.

Iíve been writing since the mid-70s and have been published in regional and national newspapers and magazines in the US and Canada. My previous book, What Fish Donít Want You to Know, has recently gone to a 2nd printing.

The url which contains the description of my proposed new book and contact information is: http://www.frankbaron.com/nextbook.htm

Stop of irc.ircnet.is
31.08.2005

Unfortunately the ircnet.is staff decided to stop their services. The client server irc.ircnet.is has already K-lined all users with an informative message, tomorrow the hub ircd.ircnet.is and irc.ircnet.is will probably get delinked.
That means that also the "remote kill" statistics page will cease to exist.

Users from Iceland are advised use the other server - irc.simnet.is. Bye *.ircnet.is!

New UK server
18.08.2005

IRCnet is pleased to welcome a new British server - ircnet.kewlio.net.uk. It will serve the people from the UK and Ireland. For more information about the server read the MOTD.

irc.starman.ee hardware failure
10.06.2005

irc.starman.ee experienced a hardware failure and is down at the moment. It will be back next week.

open.pl.ircnet.net was linked
22.04.2005

Some days ago a new IRC server was linked to the network. The server is located in Poland at the Kazimierz Wielki University, Bydgoszcz.

It is an "open server" and should allow people without an IRCnet server
in their country to access IRCnet. Therefore warszawa.irc.pl and lublin.irc.pl
will stop serving foreign clients soon. The SID for the server was not choosen from
the 616 (ISO country code for Poland) pool, but is 0PNP.

0PN means open server and P stands for Poland. The other open servers irc1.us.ircnet.net and us.ircnet.org are about to switch to a SID with the 0PN prefix too.

ircnet.choopa.net linked
09.04.2005

A new US server ircnet.choopa.net was linked today. It is located in Jersey City, NJ and open just for North American IP ranges. For more information read the MOTD. You might also want to check out http://www.choopa.net
Welcome to IRCnet!

irc.telecom.sk & irc.nctu.edu.tw delinked
11.03.2005

Unfortunately irc.telecom.sk and irc.nctu.edu.tw have been delinked.
irc.telecom.sk is gone because the hardware
was too weak for the 2.11 ircd upgrade.
Slovakian Users are advised to use the two other existing servers irc.fei.tuke.sk
and irc.nextra.sk

Taiwanese Users should use their two existing servers irc.seed.net.tw
and irc.freebsd.org.tw

[Updated] New Danish Server linked - irc.dotsrc.org
22.01.2005

Update:
irc.dotsrc.org replaces sunsite.dk to reflect the new name of the Project!


The danish chapter of IRCnet has linked a new server irc.dotsrc.org. It's located at DAREnet The Danish Research Network and open to all users from Denmark.
Welcome to the network!

New Czech Server - irc.osanet.cz - linked

2.11.0 ircd
03.11.2004

Edit: On 21.12.2004 2.11.0 ircd was finally released!

Edit: 2.11.0 release was revoked after some bugs again (there even was a 2.11.0p1), now the latest release is the 6th beta (2.11.0b16). Very confusing.

Today (2.11.) the final version of the new IRCnet IRC daemon - 2.11.0 has been released.
After all the alpha and beta versions this is the first stable version of our ircd. The release came totally unexpected and previously unannounced, however we are happy with it as it was long awaited.
As usually you can get it from: ftp://ftp.irc.org/irc/server/

Note: before all features (like longer nicks) will be usable the whole network will need to switch to 2.11. At that point we will probably get a 2.11.1 release.

Supernews servers said good-bye to IRCnet
02.09.2004

The hub supernews.ircnet.org and the client server eris.ircnet.org permanently left IRCnet. Their explanation can be found here.

Supernews hardware failure
19.08.2004

Edit:
The servers disappeared on 31.8. again. No reason or estimated return time was given.


Edit:
As you may have noticed the servers are back after just one night of downtime.


The American client server eris.ircnet.org and its hub supernews.ircnet.org are gone temporarily due to a hardware failure.

New Swedish Server - irc.desync.se - linked
18.08.2004

New Slovenian Server & more News
24.07.2004

Edit:
On 29.7.2004 at about 20:30 irc.uni-mb.si was shutdown as irc.triera.si was linked to replace the server located at the University in Maribor (the staff remains the same).

Today a new Slovenian Server was linked to IRCnet. It's named irc.triera.si, and is sponsered by Triera Internet. It allows access for all Slovenian Users - as usual more can be found in their /motd
Welcome to IRCnet!

eu.irc6.net is now accepting I-Line requests through their new request system, available at http://www.irc6.net (IPv6 compatible browser required).

Users from Lithuania are welcome on irc.apollo.lv!
06.07.2004

As of 28.06.2004 the irc.apollo.lv administration has opened access for Lithuanian users, who also may want to enjoy goodies of IRCnet, as there are still no LT servers and Latvia got one of the closest routes for them. We also hope that someday Lithuania will appear with their own server again on the IRCnet.

IPV6 servers news update
29.06.2004

RealROOT.be has now closed their server for ipv6 connections. The servername (irc.ipv6.realroot.be) is now pointing towards the new server eu.irc6.net, where all the old realroot I-lines have been moved to.

eu.irc6.net has returned
28.06.2004

Update:
I-lines can now be requested at www.irc6.net - an IPv6 link and an IPv6 capable Browser is required!

And yet another new server...
14.06.2004

The swedish chapter of IRCnet has linked a new server ircnet.bahnhof.se. It's sponsored by an ISP called Bahnhof. The name may sound a bit silly to the german speaking people. Welcome to the network!

New US server
13.06.2004

Edit:
There is another new American IRCnet server eris.ircnet.org, hosted by Supernews in San Jose now.

The us.ircnet.org server came back today (it was linked a while ago already - 28.5., but then just suddenly disappeared). It's running 2.11 IRCD now and should hopefully stay here for a longer time to serve our users from the USA.

irc.netsurf.de announces delink
03.06.2004

Unfortunately irc.netsurf.de will be delinked on 1.7. because of DDoS attacks against the server. The Sponsor, Easynet Germany, couldn't support this anymore, as the attacks were affecting their network.
More can be read here: R.I.P. irc.netsurf.de (German only)
German Users are advised to use one of the remaining 7 German Servers.

2.11.0 ircd released
01.04.2004

Edit:
The news of course was an april joke! The latest 2.11 version is alpha 6 and the NICK command will be avaliable also in the final release of the ircd.

Today the long awaited new 2.11.0 version of the IRCnet IRC daemon was released. After all the alpha releases, this is the first final (hopefully bug-free) release.

You can get it from: ftp://ftp.irc.org/irc/server/

Nicks have finally become obsolete and replaced with UIDs (unique IDs), thus the NICK command was removed. For compatibility reasons choosing your nick will be allowed just until the whole network upgrades to 2.11.
