IRCD Upgrades

Posted by cro on Tuesday 08 April 2003

In a move that is guaranteed to cause some hiccups and interruptions to the normally sleek performance and smooth running of QuakeNet, the QuakeNet Operations Team will be upgrading the IRCD on all the servers. This upgrade will happen early on Sunday, April 13th. If you're about, expect loads of netsplits, and all going well we should be up and running in a couple of hours.

Update: The blueyonder.uk servers will be down on Friday 11th afternoon for an OS upgrade, use uk.quakenet.org instead.

Please log in to post comments.
first! ok, so i cheated :)

Teazle said on Wednesday 09 April 2003

An admin would prolly give a shit about a KLine on another server :) I\'ll be around that time.

chronoss said on Wednesday 09 April 2003

Woohoo! This is where we were waiting for! Next step? New Q? :)

XeNTiX said on Wednesday 09 April 2003

Yeah, a new Q as seen on uk.test.quakenet.org. Some nice new features on it. I don\'t know if I will be around on Sunday morning, but my private log will be full of L welcome messages after all the netsplits \\o/

Rivernile said on Wednesday 09 April 2003

Netsplits are cool in big channels :P, then you have much \'victims\' =). And server upgrading is always for a good goal :)

FDNL^robbierzz| said on Wednesday 09 April 2003

Cool, I`m gonna go try the new Q :)

[XF]Jugulator said on Wednesday 09 April 2003

Carry on guys. Your managing a fine kick-ass IRC-network. =)

Steinland said on Wednesday 09 April 2003

I\'ll be at a LAN so if I\'m able to get on IRC I\'ll probably be up & awake to witness it all :)

radiance said on Wednesday 09 April 2003

Sounds like a recipe for disaster. Bring it on. BTW I AM 22ND!!!

Deckard said on Thursday 10 April 2003

Nice... Asuka everywhere. Will stop the confusion about the different cmodes and umodes on different servers ;o)

Tankred said on Thursday 10 April 2003

wahhh, the japanese pron will gain power over us :O well, nice work then :> don\'t forget to m00 for the upgrade :)

Kickchon said on Thursday 10 April 2003

Nice, I hope there won\'t be any problems after upgrading everything, but I guess the Admin/Oper team already did enough to avoid it...

skater_x said on Thursday 10 April 2003

:D juhu !

mymp][sellerk said on Thursday 10 April 2003

I hope everything will work out just fine! Have phun!

kjuze said on Thursday 10 April 2003

Arschkrampf said on Thursday 10 April 2003

finally... i was getting bored from being unable to get on the test server from home cuz of my t-dialin.net host :/ m00 hunter off

RealmHunter said on Thursday 10 April 2003

#29, get a bnc ;) Im sure HellMagic would give you one free if you /msg him :)

[AoD]Colde said on Friday 11 April 2003

Good luck, hope you won\'t need it =)

Jack-The-Ripper said on Friday 11 April 2003

What exactly does this update mean? Will it be better some how for me as a normal user? What will change?

Tommii said on Friday 11 April 2003

At the most basic level, it is making the network capacity much larger : i.e. more people can connect, without any loss of service or speed. There may be some more minor changes and I\'m sure either an operator will tell you what they are, or you will be told when the changes go live.

Kryten said on Friday 11 April 2003

/me crosses fingers and gives out a little m00 ;)

[PDK]Naz^^^^^^ said on Friday 11 April 2003

If only i had read this before i tried to connect to the BY servers :P... They seem to be back now tho :)

Blood_God said on Friday 11 April 2003

Hooray for updates! /me looks forward to it

c0ree said on Sunday 13 April 2003

What is new after the uppgrade? japanese porn? Il go for germen... not. norway2k all the way :P

Riner said on Sunday 13 April 2003

i like the +D for channels with game report eggies :D and +d/+x user mode is a great thing too tbh.

Bluz4rk said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Great work QuakeNET! I\'ve been looking forward to this for a long time. Is there a complete list of features in Asuka, or at least a list of new features somewhere, or do I have to look at the CVS? :)

Nico| said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Take a goosey at http://fukc.org/bin/readme.asuka , Nico| : should have enough information there to satisfy your needs :). Anyone noticed a particular speed increase? seems a helluvalot quicker to me :)

Kryten said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Thanks Kryten! Just what I was looking for.

Nico| said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Looks like there\'s some stuff missing from that doc though, such as +r channel mode and +x user mode, which makes me think there\'s more stuff I don\'t know about. Is it supposed to be secret? ;)

Nico| said on Sunday 13 April 2003

I\'m quite curious about that +x usermode. Still haven\'t found out what it is. BTW. If I had +kX I\'d be rocking! =)

Steinland said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Just set yourself +x and let someone other whois and dns you :)

Sarek said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Hooray Hooray it´s asuka day ,)

[RG]Ariana said on Sunday 13 April 2003

And now? Same shit? :D

mymTw|AnDr3 said on Sunday 13 April 2003

I cant connect to quakenet.org whY??

Battle^ said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Is it just my imagination or is Quakenet still down? - Its now mid afternoon on sunday and I still cant get connected!?

Demonboy said on Sunday 13 April 2003

10 hours and 30 minutes and counting on the down time.....

Zhaan said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Still down oh dear :( /me cries

Dunceantix said on Sunday 13 April 2003

anychance of getting an update of what is going on at the moment? A lot of us have no lifes and spend our days on your irc server =) Little bit of info on whats happening would be nice guys thx.

rail0r said on Sunday 13 April 2003

just use tiscali.dk.quakenet.org this one works

gotisch^CS said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Hooray,(14:47:49) connected at last !!! nice couple of hours lads :=)

renegade^ said on Sunday 13 April 2003

b0rk.uk.quakenet.org is also up and running

renegade^ said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Everything is down for me atm :/

Peete said on Sunday 13 April 2003

[CB]Nico i don\'t think they are ment to be secret since they are explain by H. For those who don\'t know who/what H is.. try /msg H help.

bluzark said on Sunday 13 April 2003

I think most of them are back now :) YAY!

Demonboy said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Will the +x mode affect channel bans at all? For example, if I ban *.ntl.com and a ntl user sets mode +x, can he join said channel freely? Surely this is a problem with L as L cannot issue auth bans as Q can, therefore most channel bans would be able to be simply evaded now?

Winkie-xC- said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Nice ^^

jkw said on Sunday 13 April 2003

how do i sethost? like this: users.quakenet.org?

DuyZeN said on Sunday 13 April 2003

#67: no, i\'ve tested that today with the result, that you cant evade bans by switching to your hiddenhost #69: //mode $me +x

T-Bird said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Go Qnet :)

EZ_Target said on Sunday 13 April 2003

i own

Paul1 said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Interesting #70, thanks. Have you tried banning the +x\'d host? #73, do not advertise you idiot, the rules are very very simple! ARGH!

Winkie-xC- said on Sunday 13 April 2003

Ok update to my post @ #74. When the real hostmask is banned, the users.quakenet.org hostmask is correctly matched and joining is not allowed, however when the users.quakenet.org hostmask is banned, it is not correctly matched with the corresponding correct hostmask, therefore ban evasion is possible by being banned with a +x hostmask. This also screws up my popups damnit! :(
