Ok, its been a while since ive posted... I am working on creating my own IRC network as well.. Im not sure exactly what OS i am going to be running either linux, or windows 2k. Unreal IRCd does run on win2k as i seen on the website i belive. I need to know information about it, in idiot terms because ive never done anything like this. I need to know what services are good and sturdy, and arent stupid...(that work all on windows) and i need an IRCd to run on the server im building.
