Mashiro 2.0 Is Here!

That’s right folks, Mashiro 2.0 is live! I need to update the packlist actually.. just /lazy.

So what does that mean for the IRC server? Well, I honestly have been pretty busy the last few days, especially with some unexpected expenses I wasn’t counting on, so I had to get those taken care of. With them out of the way, I’ll be able to focus on getting the IRC stuff transferred over. I’m also going to do some much needed updates as well, but I won’t divulge that info since its mostly just internal stuff and operator-related things. That’s the bit that will take most of my time.

I’ll make an update when I have more info available to give.

BTW, back this already: Kodomo no Jikan is coming! =P

New Server Inbound!

Alright, so honestly I did forget to make another post saying the server was back up. It was a few hours after I made my original post but basically what happened was the NIC died, as well as something potentially on the motherboard I think. Thankfully, no data was lost.

Now onto some other news. I’ll have more details at a later date, however… y’all will like it. I purchased a new server and over the next week, data migration will occur, I’ll need to reconfigure the IRC server and all that (fun stuff, so we’ll be down to just the LoliFox server temporarily), and also get the bot configured again and such. It’ll be a little time consuming, but it’ll work out in the end.

I’m going to leave out a major piece of info until after I get the server up and going with a working bot and such. Again, to transfer some odd 7.5 TB of data is going to take some time to complete.

Server Went Bye-Bye

Yeah, not in my control either. Not sure what failed though, but I’ve already sent in a ticket about it. I’ll come back and edit this later when I have more updates to post. But as of this time, the server is dead and isn’t coming back for a little bit. I don’t have an ETA right now but I’m hoping it’ll be back up in the next day or two.

On a slightly related note, I have plans for later which I’ll reveal at a later date.

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.

Fried Tofu!
