Right now, MadIRC has no own servers. We run on our oper’s servers. They sponsor the needed capacities and keep the network alive.
But this also makes us depending on them. In our history, we already had an oper who decided to no longer participate with us which required us to find a new server location as soon as possible. It went well, but we still depend on people’s good will.
So what would it cost to become completely independent?
We did a small calculation on our blog.
