Welcome to Umbrellix

We’re very very bitey. Also, we care too much.


Umbrellix offers a variety of online services to our friends, and by invitation, the public.

Umbrellix Email

To friends, we offer email and shell services. We don’t filter spam (although if you have a shell account this can be overridden by installing spamassassin in your home directory and editing your .qmail files).

We send email unencrypted, for now. Haven’t gotten around to that part of Nightmare.

Umbrellix Jabber


If you deign to store pornographic content on our servers, ensure you are using OMEMO file encryption. The legal situation in the US is volatile.


We’re a bit of a pariah in the XMPP community because of the proprietor’s poor behavior in multiple Standards Foundation-related chats, but we’ve not been blocklisted from federating yet.


Hostname Connectivity Comments clear network Our primary hostname.

IRC Network related topics


Umbrellix IRC, like all IRC networks, has policies that must be followed. The TOS/AUP is in the /MOTD. Below are the articles of specific network departments.


Umbrellix IRC, unlike many IRC networks of its meagre calibre (two active network operators), has multiple departments of operation, used mostly to categorise pages on this Wiki, but also used as the portfolios of future committees, should the network somehow grow.

Department Committee Members Home page Portfolio
Software Coder Committee Reinhilde software/* irca, our ircd, ugopherserver, our gopher daemon, and monitord, our eggdrop-script framework
Administration and routing Routing Committee Reinhilde, Jovan routing-com/* Rules for linking, rights and duties of server administrators, oper covenant requiring a digital signature

Copypasta repository

Available on this site is a repository of copypastas, some informational and some just downright bizarre.

In case you want to revive the open link concept

Umbrellix has switched to irca and is no longer open link. We still entertain support requests for the old nefarious-based ircd as well as chatd. You may git clone at any terminal as the user you wish to install your IRCd as on the machine you wish to install the IRCd on.

The example-openstar.conf configuration file is the one you want to use - please comment out/delete the spoofhost blocks if you don’t wish to use them. Ronsor is going to be very embarrassed, because he kinda didn’t.
