EFnet and Undernet hooking up!

Postby Pills » Sun Apr 01, 2007 3:43 am

That's right!

You may have heard the rumors, or some of the admins grumbling about this, and the threat of some servers splitting. In the end, it was agreed upon by both networks. Undernet, the original offshoot of EFnet back in 1994, has once again agreed to to become part of EFnet, or, as we are to be known, EFUnet.

Most of the charge on EFnet's side was led by the US admins. The EU admins promised that they would also try to get IRCnet back in the fold.

The servers will connect sometime today. Be on the lookout!

Excellent choice of names, EFUnet! Does that portend the return of commiestudly?

With irc loosing clients to other mediums it was the wice choise to do. Make it easier for users to find eachother.

This will make us stronger!

The only question is why did it take so long.





Oh and how will nick issues be handled now?

im sure if undernet was interested in adding another 500 opers and 30k bots they'd consider something as assassine as this. undernet already has efnet servers and admins anyhow, I know this is a joke and all, but it's really an insult to undernet.
have a nice day:)
