EFnet Round Robin Changes

Postby seiki » Sat Sep 02, 2006 8:50 pm

Over the past few days, the dude who runs the 'irc.efnet.net' round robin decided that he was tired of running it, and removed all the servers from the list. It now only sends users to his one IRC server. Some admins were clearly upset, and one even called for the delink of the dude's server.

We've quickly setup irc.efnet.org as a replacement round robin which EFnet users can rely on. It will pass users off to a random open I:line EFnet server.

Please update your serverlists, and stay tuned here for further developments.

This seems to have changed (back?) to a pool of IPs.

yep, he backed down and put the IPs back in there when it was clear there was almost unanimous outrage about the stunt.

you can see the results of his 'prank' at http://stats.efnet.org/?s=servers&sid=35

Running any semi-official efnet site can be a burden, especially when there is little return on the resources used.

I'm sure that the traffic used by DNS on efnet.net's name server's is rather costly.

However I'm fairly sure its nothing compaired to efnet.org's ;)

PS. I see very little drop on the "week" graphs.
