 During the proposed transition, Callum Gibson started running a dodgy perl script to link the 4 services. He'd written this during one of the early periods of oz.org stability where the servers would often end up in split-brain mode (*.net *.split) with some users on each server. He decided to revive it in case new or infrequent visitors ended up stranded on a channel where noone was looking, and so that cross-service conversation could be had without needing to work out how to edit one's IRC config, yet again. During the proposed transition, Callum Gibson started running a dodgy perl script to link the 4 services.

 +====== Ok, cool. But which one do I join? ======

 +There is some debate (as of mid 2019) as to whether to stay on AustNet (where nearly everyone had already migrated anyway), or to migrate back to OzOrg (which underwent an eleventh (twelfth?) hour resurrection),​ but one of these two is a sure bet. There will be a redirection notification on each channel if/when a single home channel is chosen.
 +
 +Callum'​s personal opinion: as the strongest preferences fall in the OzOrg camp and it is considered by some to be a "​spiritual home", I believe we'll eventually re-consolidate on that server, even though that means a double migration. As it happens, almost everyone on AustNet is also on OzOrg.
