    This is the first of the bi-weekly issues of FidoGazette.  Our
    intention is to continue with this and then possibly go to a weekly
    Thank you to all who make this possible!
    I'm attempting a blog, still working at it though.  Right now it's
    pretty boring and the comments don't work as intended :)  Hopefully
    I'll have some time to fix the comments shortly.  I'm using an
    interesting  python program named PyBloxsom (pronounced PyBlossom)
    which was written following the style of another blog generator, named
    Bloxsom (perl based).
    You can see the initial setup here http://www.filegate.net/blog/
    With pybloxsom, you can use different 'flavours' for the pages
    pybloxsom renders, or you can build your own.  The one I'm using is one
    that I have been playing with for a while.

    New Cheepware Releases
    Sean Dennis
    I'm happy to announce that I've finally refreshed nearly the entire line of
    Cheepware BBS doors and re-released them all.  For those that don't know, I
    develop my own line of BBS doors and sysop utilities under the Cheepware
    name and have been developing these programs since 1998.  All of my programs
    are freeware (hence the name of my software line, "Cheepware", a pun on
    "cheap wares").
    The doors will run on any BBS that supports 16-bit DOS doors, uses a FOSSIL
    driver, and can create either the DOOR.SYS (52-line) or DORINFO1.DEF ("RBBS"
    style) dropfiles.  Some of my better-known doors are "The Magic Oracle" and
    "Chinese Zodiac".
    The utilities come in either DOS (16-bit), OS/2 (32-bit), or Win32 flavors.
    Many of the utilties are BBS-specific and were written for my use over the
    years with many BBS software packages I've run such as Maximus, Telegard,
    Ezycom, ProBoard, and Shotgun Professional.  I have several "general"
    utilities that will be helpful to a sysop no matter what BBS or OS they run.
    I have also released other authors' software via my distribution system.
    If you're interested in Cheepware, you can obtain a text file that lists
    all of the doors and utilities I've written, as well as the other software
    I've released for other authors, via the following:
      -- Netmail       : Send a netmail to Infomail at 1:18/200 with the subject
                         line CHEEP.  The list will be sent back to you via routed
      -- Email FREQ    : Send an email to bbs@kd5col.info with the subject of
                         FREQ and the message body of FREQ CHEEP.
      -- Crashmail FREQ: Crash FREQ CHEEP to 1:18/200.
      -- WWW           : Visit http://kd5col.info/cheepware.html (not always up
                         to date).
      -- BBS           : Visit my BBS via telnet (paragon.darktech.org), my
                         website (http://kd5col.info/goto.html; requires
                         JavaScript and Flash), or via dialup at
      -- Other ways    : You can find me in the DOORGAMES or BBS_CARNIVAL echoes
                         and I am happy to help you with any questions you
                         may have.  You can also netmail me at 1:18/200 if you'd
    I've got several new ideas for doors in the works but right now it's just
    finding the spare time to work on them all.
    I appreciate any feedback you might have about my software and would hope you'd
    give it a try on your BBS soon!

                                  The Old School Toolbox
                           By RIchard Webb, 1:116/901
                         The Real Paradigm Shift
    I stumbled across a news story in February which featured proposed
    "do not track me" laws which might be introduced in congress.  Such
    laws would apply to commercial entities, and in this writer's
    opinion give folks a false sense of security.  I grant that such
    laws would keep commercial entities from tracking your viewing and
    spending habits as you surf the web, but that doesn't eliminate
    many of the real dangers.  There are laws on the books prohibiting
    burglary too, but if they make you feel safe enough to leave your
    house unlocked when you leave for the day then I want some of
    whatever you're having.  Remember that old public service TV ad
    back in the late '60's which admonished folks to "lock your car,
    take your keys" and aired quite frequently?  Even then, you'll
    notice that devices such as "the club" are big sellers.  A common
    rite of passage for teenage boys back then was to learn how to "hot
    wire" a car, even though many of us never stole one, even for a
    joyride.  We've made that more difficult since those days, and
    should do the same for our personal data.
    No matter how many laws are passed those laws are subject to
    interpretation by the courts.  They too are finding it hard to keep
    up with new methods of interaction and communication.  That's why
    we need to be aware of all this stuff, and proceed with caution in
    choosing the services we use, and what information we might allow
    to be shared with others.
    This is scary stuff.  That's why Orwell's book was banned so many
    places.  After all the benevolent ones, the cops and others of that
    sort will tell you that they're well aware of your civil liberties
    concerns.  But we've all heard the horror stories about what
    happens when civil liberties are disregarded by the enforcers of
    the law.  That still leaves us with the questions regarding the
    salesman, the foreign government endeavoring to coopt our broadband
    connected systems in a malevolent botnet, etc.  Do they care about
    your civil liberties and your rights?  NO they don't, they care
    about achieving their objectives, whether that be the sales quota,
    ripping you off  or winning the battle.  The panopticon isn't as
    scary if you know how to construct good fences, and good curtains
    or shades.   We in Fidonet have been accustomed to thinking about
    these issues long before the average person even needed to be aware
    of them.  We should bring that awareness to our neighbors coworkers
    and friends.    
    Anybody who hasn't lived under a rock has heard of medical records
    being hacked; banks and financial institutions being intruded upon
    by hackers and other sorts of miscreants.  But, we don't think
    about all that convenience.  We don't think that when we use that
    preferred customer card to get a few cents worth of discount or
    other perks that the retailer providing us this preferred customer
    card is tracking information about our purchasing habits.  To whom
    does that retailer provide this information?  We really can't say
    for sure, and they sure aren't rushing right out there to disclose
    We emit a steady stream of personal information, often without
    realizing it.  we use that credit card to buy things at the store,
    often with that aforementioned preferred customer card.  WE fill
    out an online survey which can be correlated with our email
    address.  We sign up for internet mailing lists relating to our
    hobbies professions and interests.  We acquire a driver's license,
    own vehicles; register to vote; enroll children in school; pay
    various local state and Federal taxes.  Often we allow folks to
    keep on file that handy nine digit number the government gave us,
    commonly known as a Social security number.  I provide my social
    security number only where required by law, and then ask that if
    possible it not be provided when that organization or agency's
    databanks are queried.  I also shred my junk mail which might
    contain personal information.  
    Even though we think that otherwise reputable longstanding
    companies and other popular sites on the net will utilize our
    personal information responsibly and ethically sometimes we soon
    learn different.  Not just is it often difficult to get them to
    cease and desist with dumping your information out there, but often
    one finds that opt in is the default, and "opt out" takes a bit of
    work.  Our good editor can tell you a story about classmates.com
    which was I'm sure not a lot of fun to go through.  she couldn't
    get any sort of positive resolution from those folks at all until
    she threatened to bring her state's attorney general into the loop. 
    I don't care for webmail, I don't social network in the modern
    meaning of the term.  I don't have time, and I'm not willing to be
    bombarded with junk.  I exercise my options to opt out of marketing
    campaigns, place myself on do not call lists, etc.  If I want what
    you're selling I'll seek you out.  
    Even before the development of firesheep which allows someone to
    hijack your browser session whilst you use that wi fi hotspot I had
    a high degree of distrust of such facilities.  I wonder how many of
    the multitude of public hotspot users are aware of this
    As I keep repeating in this column, we in Fidonet were out there on
    that leading edge of explored cyberspace  and bumped up against
    many of these issues.  Fidonews articles looked at privacy
    questions from both sides.  A couple of futuristic fiction pieces
    were published which also touched on them in that organ as well. 
    We as Fidonet sysops and users can do a lot to educate our families
    and friends regarding these issues.  To slightly modify a phrase I
    used to read often, we can teach them to know what to expect when
    they connect.  Your family and friends are already aware of your
    Fidonet hobby I'm sure.  They bring you their esoteric queries on
    computers and computer networking I'll bet.  So, when this subject
    comes up in conversation with them you've a perfect opening to talk
    with them about protection.  Protecting your personal information,
    as with all other aspects of personal security, begins with you.
    Ignore or neglect it at your peril.
    If you felt this series of articles was a bit scary, and maybe a
    bit melodramatic I'm sorry about the latter part.  AS for the scary
    part, I meant to emphasize the scary.  Don't just shudder when you
    consider how scary it was however, do something about it.  Protect
    yourself, and encourage those you care about to do the same. 
    Demanding more government regulations isn't really going to help
    here.  You can't even depend on government enforcing laws already
    on the books, or interpreting them so as to protect your privacy. 
    Make good personal security a habit and you'll have less reason to
    complain later.

       By Janis  Kracht, 1:261/38
    Review:  Atlas Pasta Machine Spaghetti attachment
        Spaghetti Attachment: Made by the Marcato family in Italy, the
        spaghetti attachment is for use with the Marcato Atlas 150 pasta
        machine.  The attachment fits in the slots where the included
        double cutter attachment fits.  Lift out the double cutter (for
        fettucini and thin spaghetti) and place the spaghetti attachment 
        in it's place.
        I rolled out the sheets of dough on setting 1 through 4 of the
        Marcato Pasta machine.  Feeding it through the spaghetti attachment
        was next..  As I rolled out the spaghetti, I hung it from a pasta
        holder (any large bowl will work well).  I dusted the spaghetti
        with flour to keep it from sticking.
        Boil in salted water for about 3 minutes for Al Dente.
        It tasted great.  The flour mix I used was a combination of
        Semolina and extra fancy durham wheat by Hodgson Mills..  also a
        great product!  No more guessing on the balance of Semolina and
        wheat flours...  this mix is perfect for pasta dough.
        Price: Spaghetti attachment, about $28.00.

    Issue #: 11
    In our last few issues, we've discussed the linage from Adam to
    Noah.  Read on to discover what had happened to man and the Earth
    because of the wickedness that was present in this world.
        (KJV) Gen 6:1  And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on
                       the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto
        (KJV) Gen 6:2  That the sons of  God saw the daughters of men that
                       they were fair; and they took them wives of all
                       which they chose.
        A great multitude filled the Earth and God had seen what these
        people were doing.  Check out this verse:
        (KJV) 2Pe 2:14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease
                       from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they
                       have exercised with covetous practices; cursed
        The eyes of man and women have been corrupted ever since they ate
        of the forbidden fruit.  Sin, or the disobedence of God's
        instructions have been broken repeatedly since their first creation.
        (KJV) Gen 6:3  And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive
                       with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days
                       shall be an hundred and twenty years.
        From this day, man no longer lived to be seven to eight hundred
        years of age.  A hundred and twenty years are the days numbered
        even for this very day.  We must not live in the flesh and do
        things that the men of flesh do.  We must do things that are in
        the spirit, pray in the spirit and be obedient according to the
        word of God.  We must live in love always, whether our flesh wants
        to or not.
        (KJV) Gen 6:4  There were giants in the earth in those days; and
                       also after that, when the sons of God came in unto
                       the daughters of men, and they bare children to
                       them, the same became mighty men which were of old,
                       men of renown.
        (KJV) Gen 6:5  And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great
                       in the earth, and that every imagination of the
                       thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
        (KJV) Gen 6:6  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on
                       the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
        Disobedience and wickedness grieves the Lord and the spirit.  He
        will not tolerate such things.  God had created man on this earth
        for us to be as his children and look at how we treat our Father
        in heaven.  He gave us the precious gift of life, created with
        his hands from the dirt of this earth.  Shouldn't we have more
        respect for God and treat him as he should be treated?  Yet a lot
        of us talk down against God and blames Him for the trouble that
        happens to us here on Earth.  He give us the freedom of choice.
        It's up to us to make good consequences and not bad ones.  Let us
        let Him live in us because He is greater than He who is in this
        (KJV) Gen 6:7  And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have
                       created from the face of the earth; both man, and
                       beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of
                       the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 
        At this point, God is finished with what He created.  He was
        very angry at man and his wickedness.  You can imagine what
        happens next.
        (KJV) Gen 6:8  But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
        Thank goodness not all will be lost because there was a man
        undeserving of the Lord's favor, He gave it to him anyway.  Noah
        is the man we've led up to this point from the beginning of Adam.
        God has a plan for Moses.
        (KJV) Gen 6:9  These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just
                       man and perfect in his generations, and Noah
                       walked with God.
        (KJV) Gen 6:10  And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and
        (KJV) Gen 6:11  The earth also was corrupt before God, and the
                        earth was filled with violence.
        (KJV) Gen 6:12  And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it
                        was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his
                        way upon the earth.
        (KJV) Gen 6:13  And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is
                        come before me; for the earth is filled with
                        violence through them; and, behold, I will
                        destroy them with the earth.
        God was very serious when he seeks wrath on those that are
        disobedient to him and go against his Word.  He was not lying by
        saying do this and you will surely die.  Let us make very wise
        decisions daily and do the right thing.  Do not let temptation
        lead you on the path of destuction.  Pray to our Lord without
        ceasing.  Wickedness is always there waiting for someone to
        devour.  Don't be a victim.  We have it in our heart to do the
        right thing.  Lets do it.  Next time we will see what happens to
        Noah and see how God is in control.
        If you've enjoyed our meeting, remember to ask your SysOp to carry
        MINISTER, an echo with FidoNet if he/she doesn't already.  Remember
        also to keep your head up high.  May God bless you and keep you!

    (The Slightly Crusty Sysop).  If you have an idea for a column or a
    series of articles, please contact me :)
    Email subsriptions via www.filegate.net, but of course you can always
    link into your uplink and use Tick or a tick compatible program:
    Where to Send Your Articles
    Unlike most editors, I surely do not  mind running my mouth when
    there is a sparcity of articles for the 'zine.  I'd MUCH rather
    you sent in material but I think until someone starts a
    discussion you feel like commenting about, you evil dullards
    (just kidding!!!) will no doubt complain about "no issues" (grin)
    So I will fill these issues with my meanderings and thoughts and
    hopefully we will grow into something of consequence here :)
    Don't be offended.. write an article!
    If you WOULD like to submit an article and prove me wrong about
    the dullard aspect of you guys and gals , feel free to drop
    your article off at:
    By email attach to address: janis @ filegate.net 
    Fidonet attach: Janis Kracht at 1:261/38 Modem: 607-655-5652 
    1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555  via binkp or telnet mailer  
    (don't send articles as routed attaches, send them direct to filegate.net).
    Standard binkp port only supports BinkP (24554).
    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one and send it along!
    Don't worry about the format, I can take anything you send me
    and mutilate it further as you can see above.  Linux is nice
    that way (g).  Spell checking your own work will help though
    (something I'm typically guilty of (g)).
