Efnet is short for Eris Free Network and one of the biggest and oldest Irc networks.

Named after the Goddess Eris. Which is knee-slapping hillarious. Indeed it is hillarious because it actually meant "free of eris".

But we put the eris back in efnet like discordian.com put the disco back in discordian'.

Notice the double (or triple) twist in this; being related to Eris, Seti, being hosted in Berkeley which refused to be Q-lined by Anarchy-Net.

As a bonus the Karl Koch connection who supposedly hacked into LBL at Berkeley, where Clifford Stoll was monitoring their activity.:)

I love the coincidences and take Efnet as the 'Free Network of Eris' instead of 'A Network free of Eris' now.;) mutante 21:18, 6 Mar 2005 (CET)


In August 1990 the first major disagreement took place in the IRC world. The "A-net" (Anarchy net) included as server named eris.berkeley.edu. It was all open, required no passwords and had no limit on the number of connects. 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

(wumpus' words again: "Eris refused to remove that line, so I formed EFnet. It wasn't much of a fight; I got all the hubs to join, and almost everyone else got carried along."). A-net was formed with the eris servers, EFnet was formed with the non-eris servers. History showed most servers and users went with EFnet. The name EFnet lived only shortly, as soon as ANet had died, the name EFnet became void too. There was one and only IRC left again.
