Cmdoverride question

I've been coding a module which add restriction on joins, and I use CmdoverrideAdd to override /JOIN Everything works perfectly when the ircd has been started and loaded the module. But as soon as I rehash, the overrided join is not called anymore, yet the module is loaded and I see no error. So I w...

New features in existing sources or modules ?

Hello everyone I have a module which add new user and channel modes. Now I would like commands LIST or JOIN to behave differently according to these modes. My problem is to modify or not modify sources ? With the new modes, some channels must kept hidden from /LIST , and may display a notice when on...

The ircd would generate an url or a crypted code. Then the web server display an image, and finally the ircd wait for the proper code to be typed by the user.
That's the ircd which valid the connection.

The ircd would not generate any image, but only a code or an url. And the client could request the picture on a web server. Almost all Java clients are setup as web applets. Well I assume that admins who want to get rid of clones attacks would run an webserver, and to me there's only technical issue...

How much you like the idea of implanting captchas to irc ?
Of course if would prevent non-graphical terminals and bots to connect, but this would be the end of mass clones attacks.

Just want to know what people think about this.

Did you enable language support on Unreal ? This might be due to accent-insentive queries in MySQL My Thales deamon used to crash everytime duplicated nicks were used. For example : "Bébé" and "Bebe" are the same nick for Thalès, but not the same for Unreal... Maybe changing "unreal.sql" declarat...

Yes, I agree with everything. Anyway, that does not change my wish. That's about friendly using of Internet standards. Ok sorry, my comparison is not correct, but my feeling is that if Services were using server-to-server communication, it would be easier for clients coders. With numerics responses,...

For asking nickserv password. Check HTTP basic auth : you just type a couple login/pass. You are not even required to be aware of Base64, neither HTTP headers. Why non-geeks users should deal with commands ? Many are using FTP, mails, or WWW clients and never learned any commands, unless they wanted...

Client and server should negociate charset/locale at connection time.
Like HTTP does.

Anyway, clients would have to be updated as well.

Outdated IRC RFC

Don't you think client-side RFCs are obsolete ? I think so... There is a need to get a standard for IRC Services. For instance, if someone wants to dev a client which handle Services, it's getting a headache. - First, he has to support several Services available around the Internet. - Second, he has...
