Servers to be upgraded
2015-05-27 07:03:02 by Waser
In the coming weeks, we will upgrade both nixsec and sigint to a new operating system. We will keep you posted on the down time and make it as fast as possible.

We cannot predict exactly when the it will happen, but it should by within a month from now. The reason for the upgrade is that the operating system we use will not be supported any longer.

So watch the news on the website or your status window!

Maintenance complete.

During the long Easter week-end, we've done everything that was on schedule. We are happy to say that it went smoothly and everything is back to normal.
Network-wide maintenance soon to come.

In the near future, we will shutdown servers one at a time for maintenance. So, we will make announcements online before those shutdowns, so be sure to use irc.echelon4.net as a server link, so it will route you to an available server.

When we are ready, we will keep you informed.

Statistics graphs available!

In the services section, there is something new. For all channels or nicks that have the channel stats setting on, there will be a bar chart that says how many lines of text was sent at what hour of the day.

You have to enable statistics in order to see them. In order to do so, try these commands:

/ns SET CHANSTATS on

/cs SET CHANSTATS on

Those are a good way to see when a user or a channel is most active.

I will add more features from time to time, be sure to check often.

Waser out.

Big changes for the network
2015-01-11 11:36:56 by Waser
Last week, extern and I have worked on a lot of things in order to make the network more stable and more secure. Those changes caused a bit of downtime during the night of Friday to Saturday, and we apologize for it.

So here are a list of some of the changes. We are showing the most important ones:

  • The main server (sigint) was migrated to another host.
  • The operating system of sigint was changed.
  • The website is now hosted on the same server as services, which makes communication between the two easier.
  • We have added a new domain: echelon4.network ! You can now reach sigint and nixsec with that new domain as well as the original. (like nixsec.echelon4.network)
  • There is a new pool of irc addresses that supports the new domain: irc.echelon4.network.
  • Other few minor fixes to the website and servers.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our network, and have fun!

Waser out.
