DeepServices (Orion)













The DeepServices (called, Codename: Orion), were at the beginnig, just an hobby, from our Oper shock. They looked like, the Q-Services from QuakeNet and should be for easier use, with our network, for different new users. The Services were coded in Perl and had more features as the Q-Services from Quakenet.

Now, we just had Services from one of our Ex-Opers (CoolDuke alias Chris). These Services were able to change Nick or Channeldata from an Webinterface via our Website.

This worked fine, with an little extra coding to our actually used Anope IRC Services and many different modifications on our website.

Since CoolDuke left DeepIRC, his Services were gone with him.

Then the Anope Coder Team built in a MySQL Interface to their Services. So we were hoping that we can use this again for our website. But this MySQL DB was made in first place for saving the actual file dB, which Anope creates, when it's running. Later we got the news, that this was the first step with MySQL and the rest (that is what we needed) comes alot later, in future Versions.

At this time, our Oper shock had started to learn C/C++ of which our Oper Ally had some knowledge due to his education. Both decided to script own Services for fun and to try such a Project. So shock started to convert his Orion Services (written in Pearl) to C. At the same time, Ally started to script the DeepGames Services, which should be used, for configuring GameServers with an interface from IRC.

After the hole concept for both new Services was ready, shock and Ally decided to go the next ways together. They helped each other with different Problems and new ideas. They had built in a lot functions for security-checks and better performance of the servers. Most of the IRC-Services currently available never had such an amount of security-features.

As we started to recode the MySQL Interface from Anope Services, another Oper (cLiEbiG, he also helped a lot before with Bug-tracking, new ideas and debugging) decided to join the developement of Orion to solve MySQL-DB problems.

Meanwhile orion delivers an extensive amount of functions including stability and expandability with performance above all. Lots of hours were spent learning techniques, reading and running things down. Now the point is reached at which we can offer this project to other networks beeing displeased with other available services, open-minded in testing new approaches and maybe willing to support us in giving feedback wether we are on the right way or not.

cLiEbiG knows MySQL und PHP very well and helped shock before with recoding Orion Services from Pearl to C. So the help that cLiEbiG brought into the Scripting Team outstanding. So today we may be proud of the fact that we are one of the very few IRC-Networks with a working LiveMySQL System for IRC Services.

So that was a little peace of history about the Orion IRC services. Now you know which people have done most of the work for this nice peace of Software.

As of now you know what our Services are made for you. For further instructions and informations please visit our Website (http://www.deepirc.net) where you´ll find a complete feature list and more via the menue on the left.

With best wishes, your DeepIRC Team
