The website of the Undernet IRC network is back online. We asked one of the members of the webteam, Magic, why it took so long to get it back online: “It’s been down for about 2 month now, the reason it went down has to do with that the person who hosted it for over 4 years changed job and that seems to have effected the Internet connection he had from the ISP he worked for.”
Magic is also the webmaster of mIRC.net, which was hosted on the same machine, and is offline since then as well. We reported about that on the 10th of October, and in a comment Magic explained that the Undernet website was hosted on the same machine.
“[...] we have had problems contacting him, he changed email and such and he also seemed to have a lot to do at his new job”, Magic explained the long absence.
Most of the website is back up online now. There has to be a few DNS entries updated still, and the forum is pending a phpBB update before it is back up online.
We asked Magic if the webteam has anything new in store. “Well, it’s soon christmas and you have to wait for Santa to see what he brings you ”
Finally, Magic hopes he will be able to contact the previous hoster soon so that mIRC.net can be put back online soon as well.
Edit: Both mIRC.net and www.Undernet.org were hosted by the same person, not the same machine. Excuses for the mixup.
