As you may have noticed, the pyshc0tik IRC’s primary domain name no longer points to the correct IP address. On May 29th a reboot of Samurai’s router caused a new dynamic IP to be assigned and resulted in the old DNS zone to going stale. We’ve had some issues with getting our DNS entries updated and are working to find a more stable solution, but in the meantime you should still be able to access the IRC via the temporary backup domain: rogue.samurainet.info. The IRC is still on port 6697 and requires SSL.
In addition to our DNS issues, you may also have noticed subtle changes in the blog’s organization. We’ve restructured the menu, removing all the old SamuraiNet Archive sub-categories, to make room for psych0tik categories. Some of the psych0tik posts have moved to newly created categories and all posts have been re-tagged to be more searchable. Samurai has also been kind enough to go through and update a few of his posts in the archive, either correcting known issues or noting dead projects. We’re hoping that these changes to the blog will make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
One of the changes we haven’t been able to implement on the blog is getting a custom psych0tik theme. While we will eventually get to this item, it’s definitely not a high priority on our to-do lists. If you’d like to donate some effort and create a psych0tik theme for WordPress, leave a comment below with your email address and we’ll get in touch with you. For your effort’s we’ll offer you a link on our “prestigious” affiliates category.
The proxyElite project is undergoing some final alpha testing (and a few last minute additions/tweaks) before we release it for public beta. We’ve revived the functionality of the previous version of this project and added some new features and techniques. Keep an eye on the blog for the release post in the next few weeks.
Finally, we still don’t have a WWW set up yet. We’ve hit a few small snafus and have been too busy to sort out what should be simple issues, until recently. We’re back on a roll and will hopefully have our main site up soon.
