Moving to InspIRCd 3

Hello all, it's been a while 🙂. Things at Techtronix have been fairly quiet for a while, but that's not a bad thing. However, there is something I would like to write briefly on since it is slowly starting to gain more traction: InspIRCd 3

Back in May, InspIRCd 3.0 was released, although there have been several subsequent updates to fix bugs not discovered before the launch. Through this timespan, a lot of the third party modules that Techtronix relies on have also been ported, but some still haven't. For the modules that haven't been ported, I will either have to code them myself, see if a community member like genius3000 wants to do it, or I will either work around the functionality they brought or remove it from the network entirely. 
In the meantime, there is still much work to be done on my end before Techtronix moves to InspIRCd 3. I will have to conduct an entire top-down audit of the network and its configuration and port it to InspIRCd 3's configuration files. Although most InspIRCd 2 configuration is backward-compatible, it is a convention that I usually start from scratch with a new configuration for new major version releases.

Needless to say, I won't be particularly rushing to get this stuff done, but I did want to say something about it publicly so that all of you will know.
