lol. Carlos leaves Hulk a message yesterday that just said "Faaaattthhheeerrr." With no explanation or mention of the server being down. Good job son.
This is the first real outage DA has had since we started the GB channel there. They've had netsplits, but that happens on every big IRC network. DA was chosen because Gamesurge (the original server) lacks lots of features that some people wanted. Carlos and Johnny5 were already familiar with DA and had previous channels there, and since DA had all of the various service features Gamesurge lacked, we jumped ship to there. Rizon was one of the servers Hulk was looking at when we first decided to switch servers, but it doesn't have the kind of nickserv enforcement that we were looking for. (Example: Hulk is on there right now on a registered nick, but it's not forcing a change, and there is no nickserv option to force a 30-60 second timeout.)
In the meantime, just use Rizon since that's where more people are right now. In the meantime we'll look for a new server that has the proper setup incase DA never comes back. If anyone has a stable IRC network with proper nickserv identification time out feel free to post it. Preferably a low population one for nick availability.
