google sez: Your search - "EFnet foundation" - did not match any documents.

Do you have a link to share?

If you are asking if there is such a thing as an "EFnet foundation" my answer would be no.

I think he means.. the day efnet was founded..
Ie the day ircnet and efnet split off and efnet was formed.
I dont have that info off hand..

Not not busy enuff to write this.. obviouslly. :)

Technically, we're the original IRC network (as is IRCnet), so it's really in 1988 somewhere. The name "EFnet" came around in August 1990.

So no one knows the exact date then? hehe, very odd...

On a different note... This has struck me before, that admins must have seriously disliked eris to create a network purly dedicated to be free of it, I find that very odd... especially for (these days) such a widly known network.

eris had an open, non-passworded pair of C/N lines (and likely H). Anyone could link a server to it.

haha, was that sarcasm I couldn't tell, if not... I've seen a network with open C and N lines, it was a win32 unreal ircd network, it had no real formation rules or regulations, anyone could be an oper, and it was rediculous, thats why it wouldn't work... (that being one of many reasons).

thanks Hwy, oh and munky i fail to see the point in what you said... it didn't answer my question... Aug 90 isn't an exact date...

open C / N == GOT NICK COLLIDE?!

Find me a network with some open lines, lets have a laugh :-)

I think Aug '90 is accurate enough, unless you are extremely sad ;-)

It is a good idea if all people were respectful and didn't abuse. People will, unfortunately, be people, and mass kills, nick collides, SQUIT wars, and the like WILL be done no matter what.

alz, maybe, but if you read the original question (though some what confusing) it seems the question about pin pointing the birthdate (creation or foundation) of EFnet...

Though I would like to know for my own reasons, I guess it'd be interesting to have a date to celebrate and call EFnet day, hehe, no matter how sad it may seem, it is actually some what amusing...

So... does anyone actually know the exact date... Anyone at all...?
