About Us


OVERdrive's first presence on IRC came about in 2013 as a series of channels chained together by a relay bot.

We later built up our own IRC network starting in January 2014 in order to create a more reliable and indepedent chat experience.


Currently, we employ modern IRC solutions including InspIRCd and Atheme IRC Services.

Some of the services we provide include ChanServ, NickServ, HostServ, and MemoServ.

OVERdrive-IRC is currently also the canonical network for PyLink IRC Services, a next-generation relay daemon and services package .


If you want to get in touch, join #chat on our network or send the staff team a memo: /ms send !staff <your message>

You can also send inquiries via email to ircops@overdrivenetworks.com.
