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 twisted.dal.net, 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.

  actually..  
 
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.

I see my favorite network coming higher and higher and yes I have the same nick on there. but to see Dalnet lose out is a petty really. theres only one place for script kiddies and thats clink

  no  
 
the hub they lost is typhoon which included twisted and its not like they lost contact, they just left; also, as i mentioned it is always attacked but this was the most severe

  Nah  
 
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
