jmbi stopped maintaining the project and sold the domain name to rocx, sadly he has to start from scratch.

jmbi also no longer has the old sources or a binary, so there'd be no chance of getting it back on its feet as it was.

skrzyp (sxrp) and I have also been going through a couple of ideas on registration and logging in and figured it'd help to get your opinion on how the procedure should go. The point of a non-standard registration is to weed out the skiddies of /r/unixporn who would gladly fill a form out if it meant showing off their new wallpaper on a default XFCE installation. One idea would be to make it based on the IRC channel, encouraging a potential user to be a part of the community.

For registering, a user would need to register their nick with the NickServ on the ioTek network (irc.iotek.org and irc.nixers.net). Then they would need to register a nick for the site to a bot just like NickServ.

For a user to log in, they would IDENTIFY theirselves with the bot (also like NickServ) and receive a short keystring. This string is a log-in good for twenty-four hours that is linked to a user's account.

This feels like a little bit of overkill to since I doubt there would be more than a few of us who would submit and comment on the site to begin with. That's also why I'm posting this here: for critique and other suggestions as well.
