Peach Downtime and Mango Instability

Once again, there have been issues with the hosting provider of Mango and Peach was has caused some prolonged downtime and instability. As a result of this, Both Mango and Peach will be moved within the next 2 days to another provider.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the constant issues with Mango over the last few months and the recent downtime of Peach.

Downtime of the Request Bot

Our bot, BNC4FREE, is currently experiencing downtime. This will not be fixed for another few days. We have currently set up a replacement bot on EvoSurge IRC Network (irc.evosurge.net). Requesting is only available on that IRC network at this moment. All other features that our bot has, are also only available on that network. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Our sincere apologies,

BNC4FREE Staff Team

Christmas/New Year Information

Christmas and New Year are both major events coming up this week and next week so with this in mind, it is highly likely that some of our staff may be unavailable and have other commitments during the Christmas period. What this means is, it may take us slightly longer to process requests than usual and deal with any reports/support queries.

Requests this year will be processed between 11:00 GMT and 17:00 GMT on Christmas Day this year by myself and anyone else who is available. New Years Eve arrangements have not yet been made. With regards to other days with possibly the exception of Boxing Day, service should be as normal. More information will be posted when we can determine the situation of who is and isn’t available for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day to process requests and help out.

It has been decided that on New Year’s Eve, nobody will be expected to process requests or available for support. In the unlikely event that a server fails, I will however be around to resolve that. If anyone is around to process requests and support (which is unlikely as we’ll probably all be drunk), then you’ll be very fortunate.

We hope that you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

GRNet and UnderNet will stay suspended until further notice

Dear users,

We are sorry to inform you that the GRNet IRC network has been suspended due to reaching the maximum IP session limit. Thus, requesting a BNC for this network is no longer possible until further notice. Accounts that are currently connected to GRNet will not be affected.

UPDATE 10.09.2013: UnderNet is now in the same situation and has been suspended as well.

Sorry for the inconveniences.

Regards,

BNC4FREE Staff Team
