Chat.UK Closes Down

Posted by Yarn on Friday 09 May 2003

The longest running QuakeNet server was delinked today. It was first linked in January 1998, when it was administered by TG-PhaZe and MadHacker, and the opers who have lived there include spud, Xia, iolaire and myself. Unfortunately the ISP who supplied the server and internet connection went into liquidation a few days ago, bringing an era to an end.

New home servers have been found for everyone who was based on Chat.UK, and there is sufficient capacity in the UK servers to take up any slack.

We offered our server for QuakeNet but they did not answer since then (1 month ago) so you neednt worry for QuakeNet they really knows what they are doing..One server is nothing to them. Or they do not care..

kalimannen said on Monday 12 May 2003

100mbit isnt slow but \"it was the fastest server\" and anyway, isnt the MINIMUM quaknet server connection speed 100mbit?

morfee said on Thursday 15 May 2003

no i think its minimum 10mbit in the App atleast.. but not IRL :) RIP Chat.Uk

Knight^goQ said on Thursday 15 May 2003

look carefully, quaknet, so technically im right :)

morfee said on Thursday 15 May 2003
