IRC Driven News
It has been 7 months since my last update. I have not had a lot of time to work on the website, but we have reached a milestone of 25 IRC networks being actively indexed.
I have migrated the site to PostgreSQL 12 from MySQL 8.0. The site is running faster than it ever has, and indexing times are cut in half.

So it’s been almost 2 years. After several pushes by several people, I continued development on IRC Driven. I’ve added a ton of stuff already, the indexer functionality is almost entirely completed, but at this current state can now index IRC networks at it’s current state.
I am almost ready to put the site into Beta 2. I am always seeking people to help with development as I am currently the sole developer for the website. The site is written in Python/Django. The API is written in Django Rest Framework. The IRC bots are written in Python with the Twisted …Read more

You heard it! Thanks to ComputerTech, TechNet is now the guinea pig for me to abuse in order to test functionality for the bots.
I, in no way endorse IRC networks as that is a conflict of interest and am honestly only writing this news posting to get the feature …Read more
