IRC Upgrades Where?

Long story short, because I busted the hard drive in my laptop, I lost all my progress and I haven’t had time at all to get around downloading all the files again to make the necessary changes. Which also explains the lack of posts.. I’m still active at least in the encoding scene for Exiled-Destiny, but that’s another matter entirely.

Anywho… I’ll get to it eventually, but it’ll be a while before I get back to it. And since I have to do it for 2 servers, it is a bit of a pain. In all honesty though, I really should get around to getting these upgrades done. Probably what I’ll do is start over from scratch so I’ll have a clean slate to work with, which sounds like my best option at this point. Maybe clean up my IRC directories on LoliFox while I’m at it.

So yeah, I’m not dead, just been somewhat quiet. Doesn’t help I’ve had personal issues to deal with the past month, but such is life.

IRC Upgrades and Services

I’ve got some big plans and I’ve been doing a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff the past couple days. I need to do a few other things before I actually get to upgrading the IRC servers and services, but they’ll provide new features that I’ve long been waiting for personally.

The IRC server itself is pretty secure in its own way due to my own strict rules for oper privileges. SSL being the requirement, as well as a valid fingerprint, so no one is going to get those very easily. The services has always lacked an identification method for fingerprint ID, and that was finally added in from an update not long ago. Problem? I have to redo the entire config, which I’m not looking forward to. Read more

More Space is Always Good

After some internal discussions about how to proceed with things, I went ahead and got another HDD installed for Mashiro, so now there is plenty of room to cram in there. More is going to be done with the bot itself, but I will keep things updated on that front here. Read more

Server Back Online!

Yep, the server is finally back and in full working condition. Mashiro was patched up, she’s running the latest software now, OS on the server is running on an updated version, and we’re good to go. Its been a little hectic to get things solved, but we’re all good now.

Anyway, y’all get back to downloading your anime, I’ll keep the bill (unless y’all want to donate I guess..) running and we’re all happy.

Updated Info on Server

I’ve got some good news at least. First, I’ll start off by saying that the HDD is indeed failing. I was informed that it had about 4% health remaining. Here is the actual good news.

When I had the drive swapped out, this also updated the OS and we’re starting fresh on that. The data is still intact on the old drive, and copying data as we speak. (metaphorically speaking) Configuration files and such appear to be in good condition and are not lost, so we’ll be able to get it back up and running soon enough. Read more

Luna and E-D|Mashiro

I hate it when stuff like this happen. But I guess that’s the nature of hard drives apparently…

Anyway, Luna, the alternate server to connect to in case LoliFox ever went down, is.. well, down. How long is out of my control at this point because the hard drive that crashed was the OS drive. This also had another casualty as well, E-D|Mashiro. Due to that, both services are offline and may not return for a few days until things can be sorted. Mashiro will be the first to re-appear, Luna will be second as I need to reconfigure everything.

I believe the most important data may be intact, but config files appear to have been lost. I won’t know this until the next day or two, assuming anything can be saved. I’ll keep updated on this as I’m able.

Fried Tofu!
