Okay, I’m tired of getting asked this by “newbs” to IRC.. but, the following symbols are used in IRC networks.. ~!&@%+ and now i will tell you what they mean, the relevance of some of them however, I cannot explain.

~ This symbol is used on Unreal/InspIRCd or similar types of IRCd. It represents the mode +q, and states the “owner” of the channel.
! This symbol is used on UltimateIRCd. It represents the mode +a, and states an “admin” in the channel.
& This symbol is used on Unreal/InspIRCd or similar types of IRCd. It represents the mode +a, and states an “admin” in the channel.
@ This symbol is used on all IRCds. It represents the mode +o, and states an “op” in the channel.
% This symbol is used on Unreal/InspIRCd/UltimateIRCd or similar types of IRCd. It represents the mode +h, and states a “half-op” in the channel.
+ This symbol is used on all IRCds. It represents the mode +v, and states a “voiced” user in the channel.

Okay, as you know I help run some IRC Networks and have Provided all sorts of IRC services for people since early last year.

I am currently an Oper at 3 Networks:
IRC.me.uk
InfinityIRC
OwlServ

Well, I was an oper on Geekoid – until I sent them an email telling them to remove my OLine.. as I am overly busy at the moment and dont seem to get much time online due to various reasons.

Anyway, I was shocked to get this response:

Closing Link: [78.105.172.166] Z:Lined (You wanted your oper removed and all opers with it removed recive a 7d ban, We hope to see you back)

Well, I was gonna join again to chat.. but for the Z:Line – I will not ever connect again – Just my way with things..

Thanks,

Ok.. so let me just say Happy New Year to you all! I thank you for coming to my blog, as you can see I am now on my new blogging network and everything has moved over.

So, a new year is a new start for iNiall95.com..

I have been working hard recently and asking people about the future of iNiall95.com, as you may know we have a new feel of the main website and I have now added a blogging network and some free tools you can use.

These features are for me, friends and whoever else wants to use them – some of the tools are located on Dan.me.uk and Corky.me.uk – These are my friends sites and obviously you will realise that these are cool sites too.

The chat room has moved to IRC.me.uk Port 6667 channel #iNiall95 and if your not into that technical stuff you can join on my webchat.

Okay.. so this partnership with Corky.me.uk – what does it mean?

To be honest, It doesnt change the sites in any way – It just means that me and David Cookson will be working together on both sites and helping eachother out..

Also, I have launched EdenIRC.co.uk (Not an IRC Net) It is a site which provides help with IRC (Anope Services, Modes, etc) and points you in the right direction for Networks, BNCs and other IRC services.

So, thank you for coming to my blog (again) and If you need a free blog, IRC help, a specific web tool, a chat with us, see some recommended people and sites, want to contact me or even learn more about me then iNiall95.com is the place to go.

And yes, there IS more coming soon…

As you may have noticed, yesterday my nick pretty much everywhere had changed to iTerror95

This, was of course because of halloween.. but why?

Well.. in the chat for halloween we decided to have halloween style nicknames – so Duncan was DuncTheReaper, Bkil was TheBKiller and so on..

It was all because of this post on the mob3 forums by YorkshireNerd or iYorkie

Thanks,
