well i wasnt there when they put the first eggdrop on a server. :) so i 
could be wrong about the network.  but when i looked in the earliest config 
file i could find, in eggdrop 0.7 or somesuch, the servers listed were all 
servers that i have known only as Efnet servers, at least all the ones i 
knew at all. #gayteen i believe it was but i couldnt swear to it.  i didnt 
start using eggdrop till 0.9n tho.

yep #gayteen.

from the config for eggdrop 0.7d:


# these are dynamic (ie, chan be changed and rehashed)
channel #gayteen
