I'm pleased to announce that the server has completed its 30 day trial and is now permanently linked to our network.

We extend our congratulations to Intersect's admin Nerdie and warmly welcome him to the Server Administrator team.

In other news Steve's feast was amazing (or so we've been told).

Best Wishes Nerdie,

Lords and Lasses of the SwiftIRCs it is a great honor to welcome Dyno and his server Gabriel to the network.

After passing a test-link of 30 days Gabriel has been granted a full link. I feel that this is a year of many celebrations, a feast in his honor will be held at my house. None of you are invited.

IRCd and Services Upgrades

Posted by Sara on 2012-12-19 02:14:45 UTC

Today we finished rolling out upgrades to our versions of UnrealIRCd and Anope that have been planned for several months. Our IRC software developer Adam made quite a few changes, most notably the addition of m_textban, which allows channel staff to block or censor text at their discretion.

A full changelog may be found at - enjoy!

Test Link:

Posted by Steve on 2012-12-11 23:29:32 UTC

It is my pleasure to welcome our newest test link and its admin, Nerdie, to the ranks of the SwiftIRC Team. We wish Nerdie the best of luck during his trial phase and hope that he can provide us with many new ventures.

In other news, Alex resigned.. Alexandra

Goodbye Patje

Posted by Alex on 2012-12-08 20:25:28 UTC

After nearly 3 years of devoted service, Patje has decided to resign from the Network Administrator team. Over the years, Patje has been an exceptional staff member; he has thrived at every level of the hierarchy, and the work he has done for the network has been consistently excellent.

I would like to take this chance to thank Patje for the hard work, time and effort he has put into the network.
