We will be upgrading network services to version 1.8.3 of Anope during the morning (around 11am EDT) of Sunday, 21 March 2010. The upgrade is being done to ensure that we have the latest bug fixes for our network services. (None of these bugs have been triggered on the network yet but it's better to be proactive about these things.)
During the upgrade process, services will be offline for a few minutes. We will keep this downtime to a minimum. No registrations or other information stored in services will be changed as part of this upgrade.
jon will be stepping down as the administrator of harpy.mi.us.synirc.net. slushey will be taking over the server and renaming it apathy.mi.us.synirc.net. slushey's current server, vision.on.ca.synirc.net will be delinking within the next week.
To improve service for our European users and to replace the recently departed twilight.de.eu.synirc.net, we have accepted link applications for two new European servers, aurora.uk.eu.synirc.net run by CuttingEdge and fjord.no.eu.synirc.net run by truls. We welcome the admins to staff and we hope that their servers pass the test link process with flying colors.
