Once this is complete, we'll have our own IRC server that will be open to external IRC apps. And if it goes down through attacks it won't affect the main saidit website server.
You may experience some occasional temporary downtime while we reconfigure our servers to this new arrangement. It should be completed in a matter of hours or days. There might be a few minutes of downtime here and there.
The 2 new extra servers are very small, so our total cost for running the site will still remain under $55/mo, and then all our IP leaks to the main server will be plugged (which is what caused our recent DDOS attack). So then we'll be in great shape!
