Everyone would be better off going to 5 friends and cleaning their computers rather than worrying about their own, esp since it's usually the lay person who hears about virus' and worms but could really care less until they are affected. I would hope the majority of IRC users are above average, alth...

3 cheers for chanfix.
While it did punch a hole in the stigma of serviceless EFnet, on the whole it's a useful tool with little to no user interaction, therefor taking away that bias point of oper/client use/abuse.

i suggest going to and download the client, assuming you don't already have an IRC capable client. connect to an EFNet server, then "/join #skatevideos". the mirc help has alot of great details, and shows you how to setup the client if you need it.

Yea, these seem to do little harm, but too damn annoying. To me when you're over 20 or so public channels...something is wrong. These same ones come into my channel, and they are usually in 40+ channels(yesterday one topped out at 84). I only see them being used to gather xdcc/fserve lists from some...

best of luck trying to tell any of them to stop, or get them to see it as wrong. the sadest part is they are ruining the network that they themselves take for granted and use...and all just to drop another person, or try to gain power in channels.

out of curiosity, what is the avg spec's for an ircd machine now? forgoing the bandwidth requirements, does the hardware have to be that great so as to make aol(or any company) want to take the two server machines(i assume 1 for efnet, 1 for undernet) and use them for something else. lord only knows...

while i do look forward to full ipv6 deployment, right now as it is almost entirely a 'shell' type market, there is little added need for ipv6 servers. until end users physically have an ipv6 addy to them, and not through a reseller like the tunnels were type thing, i see little need. as seik...

i'm pretty sure the .org host points to the .info host and everything is hosted on .info. so its more a matter of which domain you set your options/cookies on. i'd suggest either just renaming your shortcut to hit the .info site or login to both, set same options and cookies should be fine from ther...

you also have to worry about asking/forcing the coders of ratbox/hybrid ircd to step up, either rewrite considerable code, or figure a way to add a patch to it. then get them to all have it done nearly the same time and force admins to reinstall.

rot-26 is rotation-26. one of the simplest forms of 'encryption' by rotating the 26 letters of the alphabet. aka rot-2: a=c, b=d, etc. so rot-26 just gives you the same letters. another way to say it really doesnt matter.

identd is the identity daemon, rather oldschool and not needed as much now as before to authenticate who you are, but still used. identd uses the port 113 to exchange data, so you need to make sure you allow your router to forward these packets across your network.

finding channel total per client

Is there an easy way to find out how many channels a given client is on other than a /whois <nick> and count the channels? even automating a script to do it, i'm afraid of serverside flooding. The reason being I'm starting to have problems with what I call channel whores. These being ppl on 20, 30, ...
