Macron was originally started as irc.nonstop.net.il by mukshe, Yuka and Shekel.
It was sponsored by Matav's new cables ISP, "NonStop!".
After a while, ^Elisha took over and the server was renamed to chat.nonstop.net.il.
He brought ^Fanta and ^Cola from another server he had. mukshe (aka ^taltul) helped ^Elisha build the server and brought Kobi_S to help them.
On 2001, after NonStop (the cables ISP) got closed, the network was renamed to Macron.
On 2003, the network splitted into two networks: Macron and Xtream.
On 2004, Macron merged with IvritNet
