Topic: IRC server DNS
Taucher.net is down again
Andre and I headed over to irc.eggdrop.ph #bsd and got to chatting about IRC servers.
In this discussion, andre thought of having a DNS server entry like irc.bsdnexus.com that would actually point to the IP address of a currently working IRC server that we can log into a room of #bsd.
So, irc.bsdnexus.com could initially point to chat.taucher.net's IP - if chat.taucher.net were to go down, it could be pointed to another server (like eggdrop) and users could use the DNS transparently so we all end up on the same server regardless of issues that may be happening.
What are your thoughts people?
Maxlor I'm especially aware that chat.taucher.net is your baby and do not wish to step on your toes in any way with this suggestion.
