We are starting a new project called hackerchan.
services for communities
hackerchan will provide the same services as dailyprog to many communities:
an IRC channel with a webchat
a customisable website running under a subdomain
unix users with SSH access for all
We should move later dailyprog inside hackerchan.
At the moment, only the IRC server is up. You can join us with:
/server -ssl hackerchan.org 6697
A temporary kiwiirc instance is also available.
machine and commands
The server is a beefy i7 with 16Gb of RAM and and 2Tb HDD.
As most of the work will happen on the server, I’ve started to program some commands for the daily tasks:
We now have a radio (accessible with vlc for now) made by pp!
A dedicated post with more details about the radio should be published soon.
We will write a tool to help people to organize their own meetup. It should be a little form where the user could enter his email to get a reminder few days before the event.
socraticdev started a page about the meetup project.
