Almost two months since Freenode imploded.
In this graph you'll see the total connected users per network in the last 8 weeks.
red: old Freenode
blue: new Freenode
green: Libera Chat
After the takeover of Freenode, they rolled out a new server software and restarted the entire network.
Yeah, that's what I was talking about as well.
Wrt old vs new: they eventually shut down all the old server infrastructure mid-June, which is where the red graph ends and the blue one starts.
I had stared at this graph when it was all over my feed, wondering about when Libera will take over.
Glad to see the green line at the top.
@fribbledom so there's at least 20k of users who never restart bouncers on IRC, tells quite a bit about IRC itself
@fribbledom Is this a "What doomed Valyria?" situation, or can you fill me in on what happened? Sorry if this is asking too much.
There's been a transfer of ownership and a bit of a hostile takeover of Freenode. People started a new network called "Libera" where the majority of users has moved to.
@fribbledom It really does go to show - just because you're the 'biggest' doesn't mean you can't be replaced if you do dumb stupid shit.
