Delays :(

Well I keep delaying things, however I’ve not delayed the process of the IRCd maintenance which has been completed and seems to have gone well.

Our European based server will be coming online later today. We are just tweaking a few things and we should be ready to start the server.

BNC is now fully online, you can now request them again. We will be adding a page in the future with some simple rules for you to follow and what networks are BANNED

Remember to join #lounge where you’ll find the majority of users.

Laziness & EU server

Well, the planned maintenance didn’t happen. This was due to me being unwell (Man Flu) and feeling pretty crap. Today I’ve perked up enough to play with Linux a little and decided to install freebsd 11.

Tomorrow we will be launching another network that will link to Chatfreedom. It will be reachable via irc.interirc.org.uk and it’ll be hosted in EU (either Germany/Netherlands/United kingdom)

Staff on irc.chatfreedom.us will also have irc oper status on interIRC. So this now means, maintenance will have to happen tomorrow night 10pm till 11pm (1 hour) and each server will be down for approximately 10minutes each time.

Things are slowly coming together, we’ve had a few spammers recently that spam irc.supernets.org in channels. We have enabled our personal blacklisting service again and touch wood since adding the offending IP’s all has stopped.

We don’t mind advertising but spam advertising will get your IP blacklisted and access to ChatFreedom revoked.

We’ll come back tomorrow with another update, regarding TOR/i2p access

Maintenance

The time has come, we will be going ahead with the planned maintenance during the hours of tonight.

The maintenance window will open at 8pm GMT and will be closed at 11pm. During this time you’ll see plenty of netsplits and services may be unavailable.

Not much will be changing during this window, we are just restoring the original source (changes we made are buggy) so +r will be replaced with +P

We are also working on the public version of sIRCd which we are continuing to maintain, however we are not releasing updated versions to github any longer. The updated source will be available, however it’ll be version 1.0.9 forever.

We are moving the project over to apt repo, and will be supporting Debian Jessie (x86, amd64, ArmHF) only at present. We are slowly rolling out wheezy/stretch versions so those who run either and non debian base OS please use github to compile.

Ubuntu will be an option in the coming months, please add the following to sources.list

deb http://apt.chatfreedom.us jessie main

Adios 🙌
