irc.servercentral.net renames to irc.scnet.net

Postby Hardy » Tue Jun 08, 2004 8:09 pm

The Chicago client server, irc.servercentral.net is currently down due to a hardware failure. It is planned to replace the machine a bit later today and relink it back with the new and shorter name irc.scnet.net

As a sidenote, seiki informs that the machine still "features monster cables, neon 'ice' CPU fans, and 7 blinking neon tubes". They have also added a 'don't hump the server' sticker to discourage any despondant noc monkeys :)

rumor has it the name change was becaue seiki is a slow typer, and it took him a long time to type s-e-r-v-e-r-c-e-n-t-r-a-l

Actually, it's in a fairly secure place. :p

I was referring to a certain British server's penchant for getting various liquids spilled on it.

What was the reasoning behind changing the name? I kinda liked the old name :)

Shorter i guess, more easy to remember. When we applied with it i didnt like the old name much, because i felt it was to long for a new server, but now that i got used to it i sort of miss it also :)

Out of interest, are there plans to change ircd.servercentral.net's name also?
