The Eris Free network (EFnet) is an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) network that was designed by IRC inventor Jarkko Oikarinen in early 1990.[1]

The great split

In 1990 the first major disagreement took place resulting into the creation of two networks, EFNet (Eris Free) and Anet (Anarchy)[2]. Anet soon disappeared, and the majority of users connected to EFNet.
