News: Anniversary and network updates

18. January 2010 / short link

Yay! Our small network turned 1 on January 11th. :-)

We delinked from byxnet due to technical reasons which rendered both networks incompatible. It was a nice time with you though, thanks and good luck for the future!

So, what changed? First of all, we now support SSL on ports 6667 and 9999 and a new channel mode +S, which only allows SSL-encrypted clients to join (all of our server links are also SSL encrypted now!). Next, we realized that a nick length of 9 is just not modern anymore, so we bumped it to 15. Last but not least, both servers now accept IPv6 clients.
