I've also spent last night catching up all our channel registrations
on OFTC. The ~150 active channels in which we operate our IRC bots
are now registered to us there and under our control, with a handful
of exceptions where I need to follow up with folks today to get our
accessbot account added. Switching to OFTC at this point would be
fairly quick, at least from an infrastructure perspective.
