The End Of DALnet?


Over the last three days DALnet has been maliciously attacked by "packet-kiddies." Not an uncommon event, however, it may now mean the end of DALnet. Frink, the owner of dalnet's twisted server has decided to de-link from DALnet.

Frink told IRCNews, "[over the] past two years I have operated, the largest irc clientserver..., having held 58391 users...[and because of] differences of opinion with...DALnet administration, I have decided to discontinue my link to DALnet"

DALnet has been viewed by many long time IRCers as the worse network in existence (mainly because of their chan/nick/memoserv) and many have wished for its ruin. It appears Santa is visiting them this year.

Dalnet lost a major hub, that is why there are netsplits and being unable to connect. they are rectifying this as we speak, but it should take a while since all the servers connected through that hub, packet kiddies are also to blame but DALnet is always being attacked, if the a**holes would stop packeting dalnet it should become a good network. I in fact like the chan/nick/memoserv, it gives u an identitfy on the IRC network so people cant impersonate you.

If DALnet would only reorganise their company stucture, it would become a very good network.

as u can see i like dalnet.
/me is known as muphin on dalnet.

DALnet is a very popular network, i like the chan/memo/nick services they give it more of a community feel, and the channel i spend most of the time on we run our own IRCd to allow us access
