IRC Servers in 1993

This is a list of IRC servers, generally ordered by continent and country.
A count of servers (by version) is at the end.

Just because a server is listed here does not mean you can connect to it:
many servers restrict which sites are allowed to connect. 

All servers with 'test' or 'experimental' in the name, or which do not seem
to be general-use servers, are listed separately.  Servers which are not
regularly on the IRCnet when I run the update routine may be missing from
this list.  The "name" field is taken from what is visible from a /LINKS
on my server.

[ Note:  many servers have the version in the M: line, so the version will 
         show up on /links, I suppose.  It would be convenient for creating
         this list if those servers did not do that.  Some servers have the
         wrong version in the M: line. ]

If you think the formatting is suboptimal, e-mail me with your solution.
