due to massive amounts of spam-accounts created (I am talking 15,000+ accounts daily) I disabled the option to register via jabber client. Users now must register via the registration button on the homepage, captcha included.
and having a simple splash screen with the servers logo does not cut it anymore. Incredibly alpha-labs.net has made it from 2001 to 2013, thats nearly 13 years of service, with only two major downtimes in all that time. I honestly can’t tell just how many petabytes of data we have pushed around, but it’s save to say a few.
Also, with the new upcoming projects this server just asks for a new, central place of information. This is it.
