Port Scanning

Just thought I’d let everyone know that I’ve got a port scanner going for the IRC. Basically, what this will do is scan your IP for any sort of proxy being used when you connect. If nothing is found, you will be fine and allowed to connect. Where-as, if you are indeed found with a proxy, you will be KLINED from the server for 5 days, no questions asked.

This is your first and final warning. I will update the Information page with the relevant information, as I do not, and will not, allow proxies to be used to connect to the IRC server.

New Logo

Whenever Noratetsu has the chance, he’s going to create us a new logo for the header and change the side images, top, and bottom images as well to create a more.. mysterious look for the blog. I’ll post a comment here when the new images are up and edit the post as well. I’ll leave the actual design a secret, since I have one or two in mind still I’d like to try out.

Documentation of Fantasy Commands

I’m currently working on getting a documentation of the fantasy commands up. I have some of the more basic ones down already in the tutorials page. I will update this post as I continue to get more of the commands up.

Fantasy Commands

For some people familiar with IRC, may know about the fantasy commands. For those who don’t, I’ll give you a short explanation here.

Fantasy commands are basically alternative ways to control your channel with shortened commands that are much easier to remember than having to go through ChanServ or BotServ perhaps. Many people like them, and maybe some that don’t, but they are there for those who would like to use them.

At this time, I do not have a list of all the commands available, however if your connected to the IRC, then type “.help” (no quotes) to get some information for the various commands. I will eventually have something up when I get the time, but I hope everyone will like them. ^_^

CGI:IRC Support

Ok, in all technicality, CGI:IRC is basically what allows people to connect to the server via external means rather than an IRC client like mIRC or X-Chat, or even Ircle on the Mac. The support gives the added benefit that no one has to download a dedicated client, and use a service such as Mibbit.com.

At this very time, the only protocol allowed is Mibbit, a web-based IRC client using AJAX rather than Java, which is slower to respond and must be re-compiled each time it is run. However, people can use whatever they wish. To join ShadowHime through Mibbit, just enter our IRC link (leave the irc:// off ^_~), enter a channel and your all set.

PDA/iPhone Support

With technology getting the way it is, and people using iPhones and all that jazz, I’ve added the ability to view this site (ok, so it’s a blog software, bite me =P) with PDA’s and your iPhone. So, if you own either one, you can now view the site with them. Just to note, I have no way of testing these functions, so I will need some feedback as to whether or not they are viewing correctly.

In other news, I have added one or two things to the pages which y’all may have noticed. Not only that, I’m curious if y’all would like a contact page in case you need to get a hold of the IRC Staff for any particular help y’all might need.
