Planned maintenance notice

Hello it’s been a while, we are planning some maintenance for this coming Sunday 5th August. We don’t have a time window due to the lack of time however we expect to have it completed by 9pm BST.

We are making some big changes to the network layout, as we’ve had to revert back to hosting our irc network from US servers. We can now safely say we will be introducing 2 more servers. We are restoring our EU based server (FuckShakes.chatfreedom.us) and we will also be launching our new server based in Singapore.

We will also be upgrading our IRCd’s at the same time 🎉 and providing another server for our free ZNC service.

Have a nice weekend

A few changes

Sorry for the lack of news, been busy with shale-services (xtheme clone) and making things work with sircd.

We’ve upgraded our IRCd to the latest version which now offers a few extra usermodes and General changes. You can now enable usermode +W which will show when people /whois you.

We have also made it so registered nicknames now automatically get the vhost *.users.ChatFreedom.us of course the * being replaced with nickname. You can of course request a vhost, and it’ll overwrite default.

IdleRPG is now active in #idlerpg and website can be found at www.idle.ChatFreedom.us. 🎉

We have also enabled logging of our main channel #lounge and logs can be viewed over at http://logs.chatfreedom.us.

I’m away from IRC for a while. ChatFreedom will continue as normal and staff will maintain the network (devil/sonic).

It happens all at once.

Hey folks,

I’m sorry if IRC has been bumpy past 48hours, our main server went down (powered off) which was booted and everything was fine or was it……

NO would be the answer!

Whilst we got our IRC network stable again our server hosting our website/email/stats decided to give up. Sadly I was unable to recover any databases so we have to start from the last back up I had. At present most sites are still offline other than main website whilst we configure stuff. Our DNS was also hosted on this server, which we’ve had to setup again. If you are suffering from any problems please email support@chatfreedom.us

Please accept my apologies whilst we restore ChatFreedom back to its former glory 💪💪

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
