PROJECTS / HOBBIES

ElectroCode — Website, IRC Network, Python-Based IRC Services

January 2012 - PRESENT

First, I run a website for ElectroCode, https://electrocode.net , as well as manage the IRCds for the related IRC network, with help from two other IRCOps (IRC Operators/Administrators).

On several of these IRCd servers I have the ability and access to manage them directly, installing/removing software, editing server wide configuration, adding/removing users, shutdown/reboot the server, etc.

I also have a hand in developing a Python based IRCd-like service framework; which is called PyLink, that allows the introduction of arbitrary (ro)bots to accomplish certain tasks and provide certain services to the users on the client servers. Some commands though, are IRCOp only, as well as some of the functions of the (ro)bots.

Along with that, I actually run an instance of it on my IRC network. For instance, as of February 2017, I’ve developed 3 plugins/services. First, Aurora, which requests the IRC Client Software version on the user’s connection to the network. Second, ‘Welcome’, a simple bot that provides helpful information to users when they register a channel. Third, ‘Quote’, an IRC-based quote database, which uses MySQL, as well as a Python Library named SQLAlchemy, which allows easier ways to interact with a MySQL database. The library still requires you know the structure of a simple query though, so you do need to know the ‘grammar’ and ‘conventions’ of a MySQL query.

IRC-Source — User Moderation, Website Administration

September 2016 - PRESENT

IRC-Source is a search and statistics engine for online chat rooms. My roles include, server administration/maintenance, website administration/maintenance, development of new features.

I’ve helped the owner with user support and ‘chatroom’ questions and after a period of showing my worth, I’ve since become one of his most trusted friends, and have earned the privilege of being an administrator to all of the service’s many facets.
