OK, so here's the yet unanswered question - how do you tell if a server is
split from the rest of the IRC servers? Once this is answered, the rest is
rather minor. I also have some other as yet unanswered questions.

How do you hack the server for ServerOp status?
How do you make the server split?
How do you make the server reconnect?

What's the frequency of the strobe used by fire trucks/ambulances/etc.
to turn lights green? I have built a nice little device but I can't
get it to work always because I don't know the exact freq.; I just
sort of dial it around.

Is there a better place to ask this question?

Thanks for the help,
