LoliFox Server Upgraded

Yep, our cute little lolifox has a new server, this one on a nice box too provided by one of my old friends from a few years ago. If she wants to be mentioned, well that’s her choice. XP

Anyway, at least now if my internet goes out, LoliFox will remain. I still host the LoliFox bot myself (I want to do more stuff with her, but hard to find good coders anymore) and the stats stuff, but otherwise everything has been rather stable as of late.

Other than that, nothing new. I did do a little tinkering with the Censor configuration and added a few words in there, and I’m open to ideas on what to add if anyone wants to send any to me. Otherwise, your basics are covered in the censor for anyone wishing to use it.

Yet Another Server!

Well, I got that last server I’ve been wishing for. Thanks to a friend on Rizon, BloodRayne / SoulTaker, he decided to ‘donate’ his box for us to use and link to ShadowHime!

Be proud, I went through hell trying to get the damn thing to work properly. Anyway, there’s only one minor change with this server. SSL is still available, but for this one in particular (Ganymede), it’ll only be available via port 6697. 9999 will not work on that server in particular, but the other 2 will be fine with either port.

Anyway, Info page will be updated, so please enjoy your stay here!

Ooh, another server?

I like having redundant servers, and 3 would be a good max for the time being. I have a friend who I’ve known for a while that might be willing to go ahead and have a server linked to ours, while in the meantime, I can help him do a few things and learn the world of Linux.

There are no plans set in stone right now, but I’ll keep up-to-date about it and we’ll see how things go. If this third server does come, then I will no longer accept any additional ones for the time being until the userbase grows. The main luna server will act as a hub while the rest will be leaf servers, so to speak.

Statistics Page

‘Bout time ain’t it? I finally got a stats service running along with a site to go with it, so its all purrdy. Yes, purrdy, not pretty… purrdy. Texan in me. =P

Ok, that aside.. you can follow the Stats link on the right side (making an iframe would be too much of a hassle on a WordPress page, trust me), and while the post is here, y’all can use this link: ShadowHime Stats. Have fun, and expect a few changes soon when I update the CSS info to reflect ShadowHime colors… and change a few images.

Server Info Updated

Alright then, the Information page has been updated to include the new server info. The shadowhime.net is set to a round robin, so you may get either server, while the other one, irc.lolifox.net, will get you to the new one.

On a side-note, SSL is supported on both servers. I think I forgot to update something in the tutorials area or something, so I’ll fix that when I get a free moment.

Before anyone asks me, no, I have no intentions of supporting IPv6 at this time. Its still a pretty new tech (kinda.. its been around for some time over in Europe), but since we’re US-based, there are barely any IPv6 providers and such. None of the servers are compiled for IPv6 support at this time. If it becomes widely popular, maybe then I’ll reconsider on recompiling the servers for the support.

Additional Server

It was a long time coming, and I’ve mentioned this once before a month or so ago.

Well, I finally got the new server, currently running the latest Fedora OS available (though fussy sometimes..). I’ll have a bit more info later on and I’ll add the necessary information on the pages and let y’all know. I do have it linked right now, and so far so good.

This is a self-hosting box, so bear in mind that if my internet goes out, so does it. But, at least it’ll be better to have two servers in the event either goes out. I’ll keep a copy of the services on both ends, but only one will run at a time, to prevent collisions and splits to a minimum.

And one last thing to note. This server has a special MOTD, so to speak, in place. I do have to give credit where its due… Reku is the artist for the base image I used for the ASCII art, while the program to make the ASCII art is called JavE, a freeware program coded in Java. If you wish to see the image I had used (or rather, the full image), you may click here. The site is in Japanese, but you will be able to see the image fine. If y’all want an alternate link, use this instead.

The full MOTD for the servers may get posted here, but I’ll debate on that for a bit. Anyway, as mentioned before, information for that server coming soon. irc.shadowhime.net will be a round robin DNS essentially, and if y’all want to use the other server specifically, I’ll have a link to it on the information page.

Fried Tofu!
