    Mostly minor stuff this time.
    1. Working a lot on IRC the last few days, will be up and down a lot. More info on this when it's complete. Fixed it, normal service resumed.
    2. The streaming platform has been temporarily disabled due to twitch changing their API. No ETA on this unfortunately.
    3. Completed the migration of our home server from windows to linux. This is primarily used to store backups of the site and data. There's also a small (whitelisted) Minecraft server running at the moment, will be sitting on it for a while before thinking of moving it elsewhere or making it public.
    4. Various security fixes and improvements.
    5. Changed the email system to use TLS only.
    Will be adding, chopping and changing this over the coming days.

    Fixed home server, memory failure - sad times. Going to have another update today to launch a midterm fix for streams (hopefully).

    Quite a bit happened last ~2 weeks.

    1. Upgraded home server to an i3 with 6GB ram (unfortunately not ECC), have to look into a new housing system as the drives are reaching 40degrees, bit disconcerting.
    2. Overhauled IRC again, added 2 new secret channels with relays, will open them up soon when I'm 100% happy with them.
    3. Renewed the SSL cert and rebuilt it, huzzah.
    4. All servers are now almost 100% autonomous, working on making everything standalone. Should be done in a few days.
    5. Currently working on getting the replacement FTP server online.
    6. Almost forgot, setup Munin across all the servers, absolutely swimming in graphs and data, it's glorious and you should totally check it out.
