Zone 5 Leaves Fidonet

This week Zone Coordinator, Russell Tiedt, announced that as of the month of October's end, he would be removing Fidonet from Zone 5, the African continent.

Yes, yes, we've known the number of sysops was small in that zone has been small for quite a long time, but the nature of events forcing the close of Zone 5 was more than sad.

Criminals broke into Russell's home, and stole most all of his and even his children's hardware, as well as software CDs. Russell was able to close down the Zone gracefully by throwing together a temporary pile of odd-pieces of hardware.

We're hoping that those in Zone 5 who are still running BBS systems will contact us so that we can continue to be somewhat connected there.
