It's been about 5 years since I talked to most of you guys... I was "isosceles" or "iso" back on vbirc. Nice to see a lot of you are still around!

Shoutout to Floris and Mikey :D

Zok,

OMG, it's you! So cool to see you. I really appreciated the emails we had (though I don't even remember their content) after shutting down vbirc.

You sure you never signed up on the wetalk network or one of my forums in the past? I don't see a zok or Isosceles username though. If you have any (old) email addresses you want me to do a search through the memberbase with, let me know in a conversation or just email me.

Anyway, welcome! Nice to talk to you again, and I hope you become just as much of a regular as you were on vbirc back then.

Yeah, I've been MIA for a while. After vbirc shut down I just dropped off the map. I intend on sticking around a bit though, so y'all better get used to it!

If the veterans are back and stay back, it's worth starting up a chat room for the website as well for us to hang out in. Just saying ;)

Do it! If you don't, I will
If you can reverse resolve an IP to the host, I can point the irc.omgboards.com to the IP.
Could you limit the chat room to just ONE room so people can't make others, can it be over SSL, people don't have to register their nick, should be optional. But it would be nice for us staff to get floris and for people to see it's "that" floris.
If you can run it at least until the end of the year, and under those conditions, .. I think I would not have an issue with it if someone else runs it for us. Forum rules will apply to the chat .. anyway, start a conversation with me and nix and mikey if you are serious about it. ;) I am sure @mf and @elmo and @Estaban wouldn't mind re-joining the chat room and idle and chat etc in there either.

I'm certain I could spin up an EC2 instance for this in no time. Shouldn't be more than a few bucks a month if it's not in the free tier. Not sure how AWS feels about IRC servers though. Let me do some research and I'll get back to ya! Otherwise I'm certain I could get a cheap 1and1 or linode vps - I've got existing servers running on both of those hosts and they're pretty darn solid.

Howdy Nix!

So Floris, I've set up a server (should only be 4 or 5 bucks a month via AWS). Still configuring Anope/Unreal. I'll send you some connection info tomorrow after I get things running better :)

Awesome. Great to hear and looking forward to trying things out

Got Unreal and Anope successfully compiled, installed, linked, and really crappily configured. I'll PM you with the server IP so you can point irc.omgboards.com at it. Then I'll chat with AWS about getting some RDNS going!
