IRCD:: The Return

So, the IRCD is back up and running, new IP Address is, (we are still waiting in expectation of XName to update the IP address of to that real soon now, HOW IS THAT EMAIL ADDRESS GOING, DUSTY?).


Everything Old Is New Again


You may have noticed a few freshly added links to the sidebar, and if you are really paying attention you'll probably realise they are not so much new, as returning links. 

The Chat Stats page has made its return almost unchanged, but the Guestbook and Pictures sections (now partially re-dubbed 'User Gallery') have been re-designed and re-built for your viewing pleasure. 

New to the Guestbook is the use of reCAPTCHA captchas to curb the tide of spam there and e-mail and URL filters, so those can be entered and not harvested by travelling spam-robots.

The Gallery (formerly Pictures) has been totally re-designed (The original 'design' was one huge page with thumbnails of all the pictures on it) and now features User Categories (basically indicating a chatter's frequency of chatting), multiple pages and an expanded Individual Picture page.  The new Individual Picture page now includes Nick, Description, URL and Status fields, as well as a means for people to comment on each picture (with a reCAPTCHA captcha to keep it spam free, of course). 

Both the Guestbook and Individual Picture pages have RSS feeds that you can add to your feed reader, Google Reader or Live Bookmarks.

Also recently added are a number of methods of connecting to our IRC servers: 

The last two should work anywhere web-browsing works.

Thank you, you may now return to your scheduled whatever it is you were doing.

Tired of endless exploits against your widely used but rather insecure operating system? We recommend the Core Force security system. It protects your computer, learns your (inter)network habits keeping your computer safe from known and uknown exploits (Santa Claus Worm anyone?). In addition its based on OpenBSD's Pf packet filter, which is double plus good.

And Its Free.

we've changed a few things, hopefully for the better.

  • new logo on all the pages
  • guestbook and stats now have the same colourscheme as the rest of the site
  • CGI Chat is now using our server, tell us if it seems faster/more reliable/whatever
  • pictures on the picture page are now sorted (finally) alphabetically
  • google ads on the right, and links to get firefox and thunderbird
  • the news feed can now be opened and understood in any XSLT supporting browser

Jube has asked me to mention that he has created a site featuring some cool african photographs you can use for backgrounds. You can also purchase them as photo stock for other uses:

changes in the pipeline

| | Comments (6)

First thing you may notice, is the new Newsletter box, for you guys to sign up for random, semi monthly crap that i think up.

Soon the Guestbook and Statistics will be integrated better into the look and feel of the website. For Guestbook that has already begun.

As this is a season of change, please add comments on anything else you want to see change, thanks.

The perfect brew for the King of The Jews.

Delicously blasphemous.
