Blog Updated

If anyone tried coming on the last 10-20 minutes, the blog may have been unavailable for a short while, but that’s all taken care of. It didn’t take long to update the blog or anything, so now everything is a go.

No one will really notice anything on the main page, but the major re-design of WordPress was internally and on the administrator side of things. Have fun everyone, and I’m hoping for a good year for 2009! =^.^=

Merry Christmas!

Well, to get it out there, I wish everyone here a Merry Christmas! So far we’ve had a rocky start, but we’ll hope for a good year next year.

I have no big plans for this Christmas, since I’ll be busy doing random things I typically do all year round. (my life isn’t that exciting really, hehe) As far as Noratetsu is concerned, who knows what he has in store for us. Let’s just hope it’s good. ^_~

Anyway, have fun!

Server Update

This isn’t a big update (unlike the one that will be coming soon), but I took the server down yesterday for about 20 or so minutes to update IRC server itself. Compiling decided to take it’s time, so it took a bit longer than I wanted.

The server has been up for a while now, so no real issues going on or anything like that. The next update I’ll probably be waiting a while for. The next update for the IRCd server itself might not happen for a few months, along with the services themselves. This is to ensure that the features that I find more useful work properly before I put it live. Especially the fantasy commands, since that’s a big one for me.

I’ll provide further details when the two programs are near-release or are released.

IdleRPG Tutorial

It’s finally here! Took me a while to get the information down, but I got it. You can find the information page under the “Tutorials” link, or just go here for you lazy people. =P Hehe, have fun!

IdleRPG Pages

I pretty much got done with modifying some of the CSS source from the original IdleRPG pages to somewhat fit the ShadowHime site. I’ll have a tutorial, or information page up soon for IdleRPG. Until I can do that, y’all may follow this post for the time being. It’s a lot of information to try and fit onto here and to get a good format going in order to help make it easier for all of you to use it.

Do keep in mind, if you do sign up to play along with us on IdleRPG, you will not be immediately added on the players page. Because it is hosted on a different server, I have a script in place that will update that page every so often (by what I put, 20 minutes). So, if your not on there, check back in 20 minutes or so and see if you are. If not, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am usually available on the IRC most of the time, so I should be able to provide assistance to those who need it.

Do enjoy your time, and hope you continue to stay with us. =^.^=

SSL Support!

Yes! It’s finally here! After much, much pondering and thought about what’s going on with the SSL support on the server, I finally figured it out. Apparently, it was all an error on my part and I never realized it. How dumb of me… lol……… Mk, ’nuff of that.

I have updated the MOTD to include the SSL ports that are available for use for everyone. Both 6697 and 9999 are available for users to use for SSL connections. I bet it’s about time since I’ve been talking about it quite a bit lately, but hey, it’s finally available! Also, I will think about enabling a module for SSL-only channels (via channel mode +z), but that’s something to ponder over. Quite honestly, I don’t think there’d be much use for it. But if need be, I’ll enable it and see how it goes.

If anyone has questions, please join #help and we’ll see what we can help with. To connect via SSL, you may use /server +6697 to connect.
