NickServ Tutorial Revision

So, thought I’d let y’all know that I did a little revision of the tutorial for NickServ. This is because of one major change that was done: NickServ Accounts.

When I updated the services, I decided to change from nickname ownership to account-based to be easier to identify to a single account, instead of a name. This should also make it a bit easier for those who just want one vhost across all of their nicks, but I haven’t explored much into that bit.

I have more changes coming, and I am planning to do a small re-format of the BotServ page, and ChanServ is getting some additional notes on a brand new system that was introduced for managing access rights in channels: Flags. This will mean that not only will the xOP and ACCESS systems remain, but a third one is introduced. I will have more information regarding those in the future. It’ll take me a while to find a bit of time to get all of this done, but the NickServ revision is the beginning.

Front Page on IRCIndexer

So random bit of news. After just randomly finding out earlier in the night, our network here is on the front page for the week of July 27th and I’m only just now finding out. Well, hey, better late than never. XD

For those curious, IRCIndexer is a service for searching and indexing IRC Networks and I submitted mine after SearchIRC died a long while back. IRCIndexer took its place and I submitted this network there to maintain the information.

Updates Complete!

Server updates have.. actually been complete. That last post was delayed due to some…. issues I had with the server’s firewall. Which was beyond my control. I got that resolved finally, and I did run into a couple other minor issues.

But for now, the updates are done, and no major issues to speak of. I will be making some updates to the tutorials when I get a little extra time. Meanwhile, stay tuned for further updates, since I’m now trying to get some other stuff fixed actually since something did break, but it’s relatively minor.. strangely speaking.

Update: Server Updates are Happening!

Holy crap, I’m actually doing it!

Having done Luna’s IRC config and services yesterday did make things a bit easier to transfer for LoliFox. Just a matter of changing a few key things here and there. Those already in the server will receive a Global notice about an hour prior to me moving everything and all that.

Server / Services Update Restart

Been a while since my last news post.

Ok, to start things off. On a whim I decided to look at updates for the services and noticed something rather interesting. Most of the modules I use have been baked into the services itself in the latest updates, which means it’ll be far easier to use than those 3rd party modules I’ve loaded. One in particular I like to use is SSL Auth via NickServ. I use it on Rizon as well, and it ensures you know its me using my names and such.

There are some other things in the services, but I’ll go over those at some other point. I may have to re-do the tutorial pages as well to fit some of the new features that will be available. The biggest change is how channel management will be done, but that will have to wait until later. But, if I recall, users will have a choice between 3 different systems of management.

Stay tuned for more updates, because this means I’m going to restart my efforts to get the servers and services upgraded, so this will be a fun few days. Those connected on the servers will get immediate news through Global notices as necessary. Major updates will continue to be posted here as needed.

Mmm boy…

Uh, well now this is a conundrum. I don’t look at this site for a while and thinks sorta broke behind the scenes in one of the WordPress updates. Guess I’ll be shopping around for a new theme I guess. Shame, I’m quite attached to this one.. Well I guess things have to come to an end with the old.

The packlist thing had been left not updated mostly due to my fault because… quite embarrassingly, I forgot the FTP password briefly. I finally figured it out and get it updated, though the page date won’t reflect that. Not sure why or anything, but likely due to the theme being somewhat out of date. Well, eventually I’ll get a new theme I guess. Depends if I can find any that will suit all those damn pages I have. (which is why I liked this theme in the first place..)

Fried Tofu!
