The "A-net" (Anarchy net) included a server named eris.It was all open, required no passwords and had no limit on the number of connects.
During the summer of 1994, the Undernet was itself forked.
For the latter purpose, the Undernet implemented timestamps, new routing and offered the CService—a program that allowed users to register channels and then attempted to protect them from troublemakers.
The very first server list presented, from February 15, 1993, includes servers from USA, Canada, France, Croatia and Japan.
As Greg "wumpus" Lindahl explains: "it had a wildcard server line, so people were hooking up servers and nick-colliding everyone".
The "Eris Free Network", EFnet, made the eris machine the first to be Q-lined (Q for quarantine) from IRC.
On August 15, the new user count record was set to 57 users.
