This network was originally called FluxIRC, and ran a version of QuakeIRCd. The date that FluxIRC was founded is presently unknown to us. After some disputes between key members of staff, a considerable delink occured.The delinking parties took the FluxIRC name with them, yet claimed little or none of the network user base. After the delink, a number of improvements were made to the staff hierarchy and the network infrastructure. The network was renamed to SwiftIRC on April 22nd 2005.
