    In this issue, Mike Luthor gives a peek at early Fidonet in his
    article which he originally posted in the Z1C echo.  
    
    He had a heathkit H89 computer!  Darn, how many times did I dream of
    building one of those when I'd see the ads and articles in trade
    journals :)
    
    Enjoy this look at the past, but realize that Mike is right in
    mentioning why Fidonet is still an important option.

    Post from Mike Luther in the Z1C Echo
    By Mike Luther, 1:117/0
    
    The following piece of 'history' was posted in the Z1C echo by Mike
    Luther.  This is a good opportunity for those who haven't been in
    Fidonet a long time to get a sense of why we do things the way we do.
    -ed
    
    
    As a matter of fact ..
    
    KW> I suppose a more ethical hubmaster would make echoes not on his
    KW>or her  system available as passthrough - unless there was a
    KW>legal issue at hand.  There's never been any grey area with
    KW>potential illegal content in Fido echoes, has there?

    Region 19 and specifically Net 117 here are precisely where at least
    a part of the huge original USA legal complaint mess in relation to
    pornography and virus plus contaminated FidoNet messaging took place. 
    Some folks really, I think, still have no idea that FidoNet started
    here in the College Station,Texas 'area' back even when modem speeds
    were moving from 300 Baud to the 1200 Baud level stuff!  I still have
    my actual 1200 Baud modem that was used for Node 3000 here in Net
    117, together with the HeathKit H89 computer which hosted it, all on
    CPM and still have the original FidoNet 5-1/4" floppy diskette with
    the original program on it.  The original work to do all this was a
    part or the now deceased Paul Sittler's work at the Vet School at
    Texas A&M University and for years, net 117 was larger and far more
    active than even Net 106 in Houston!
    
    The legal issue and forced consideration for absolutely illegal
    content in Fido echos broke out during an issue in which the only
    practical way to pay for the dialup even local long distance
    telephone connections you had to do to be a member of Fido,
    apparently 'made sense' to those who merged a number of pornography
    message networks not actually a part of Fido, into Fido related
    combined traffic.  Which I had *NOTHING* to do with any of this, but
    in that I was horribly involved in huge USA legal issues of which it
    was alleged that Fido message traffic was involved, but it was not
    and after even a DECADE of total telecommunications absolute proof
    that I made that every dime of the MILLIONS of claimed USD in taxes
    owed of which every dime claimed was TOTAL US Government fraud, the
    attornies forced complete logging, message content analysis and set
    huge fines and criminal issues for what was 'their' definition of
    what was 'illegal' content in FidoNet message traffic.  Which we,
    here in Net 117, ABSOLUTELY proved was 'fixed', but with a huge
    percentage of the 'users' gone in the process.
    
    The first actual 'virus' that I think is a correct claim here,
    actually came from an accidental error that Paul Sittler made in his
    original code creation for a utility that we needed to create logged
    auto multi-node forwarding and distribution for the Net 3000 sites
    which included many mission critial hospital and emergency operations
    center connections that didn't actually exist in the formal FidoNet
    NodeList, but were in private sections added to it for mession
    critical defense purposes.  What happended with the 'virus' deal was
    that Paul forgot to erase the message copies for the forwarded
    messages from internal step server operations going through what you
    now consider to be HUB's and so on!  In the week following this error
    that the original FidoNet author elected to add this utility to
    FidoNet, this error filled up almost every server in the whole Fido
    operation with trash!
    
    Which the local Texas law enforcement people and Texas A&M's
    departments that also were using the Fido stuff on a private basis,
    long before Internet stuff really existed in any plentiful format,
    were also using from Paul's and others' work.  Plus in this whole
    mess of you gotta really pay for every tiny bit of telephone time
    even for towns twenty miles away like the little community of
    Plantersville, Texas from College Station, any dialing error could
    really cost you money.  As well as any little tiny error from a virus
    that set your modem calling Australia from College Station, Texas,I
    assure you.  We lost one node in Net 117 that got hit in this server
    full and line busy deal who came back to home from a week's out of
    town oil field work to find over $1,000 USD on his GTE telephone bill
    from his modem that had tried to reach the 117 server that was jammed
    every few minuted for the entire week he was gone!  And GTE took it
    to court to collect that fee and won it, complete with all the Fido
    logs and so on that the local cops gladly furnished as part of the
    porn scheme trace work.
    
    From which REAL virus efforts ramped up from FidoNet 117 here at
    Texas A&M University and Net 117 members actually took down the
    entire Texas A&M University computer network system from FidoNet
    research at Net 117 here.  Which I had *NOTHING* to do with and
    totally cooperated with the officers to eventually track down and let
    them do what they eventually did to the source of that mess.
    
    The massive result of which, for all practical purposes, pretty well
    totally destroyed the final membership of Net 117 for all the
    required use, message archive requirements and connection pattern
    trace work that were absolutely required by the local law enforcement
    findings.  From which I finally wound up as Net 117C as a result of
    my real capability to prove the Fido, as such,had nothing to do with
    all of this and was a totally needed normal way people should be able
    to communicate, pre and into early Internet creation.  Plus what was
    *ABSSOLUTELY* really needed as Fido still *CAN* do, To provide for
    seriously needed emergency communications that can even go back to
    bridging POTS telephone connections to even digital radio system
    stuff,and even if needed, to HF shortwave digital communications
    service in the horrible event that such might even be the only way to
    connect even an area like a FidoNet net to some other place in the
    USA, or even across the world, if that were all that is left.
    
    I have the thank you letters from the ARRL to me to prove that we did
    it here and absolutely still have the logged message content in the
    database that is still, at least for me, 'legally' needed for traffic
    that I participate in here.  Still to this day.  Though I assure you
    it is silly to think about that given Cell Phones, text messaging,
    even the Cloud that is now raining down on us.
    
    Just don't think for a minute that possible illegal message content
    isn't something a *C needs to consider for Fido.  I assure you it is
    still an interesting ride on this pony.  Errrr Puppy Fido Dog?  Grin!

    ===Beef and Bean Stew===
    3-4 lbs potroast
    4 cloves garlic, chopped
    4 slices thick cut bacon, chopped
    1 onion, chopped
    2 carrots chopped
    1 stalk celery chopped
    1/2 cup red wine
    1 cup beef broth
    1/2 cup tomato sauce
    1 15 ounce can cannellini beans 
    1/2 cup elbow macaroni
    1 cup chicken broth
    
    With a knife make inscisions in the meat.  Stuff the inscisions with
    pieces of garlic.  Salt and pepper the roast.  In a Dutch oven, sear
    the meat on all sides and brown for about 10 minutes total.  Remove
    the meat to a platter.  Cook the bacon in the dutch oven, add the
    chopped onion, the celery and carrots.  Cook until the bacon is
    crisp.
    
    Add the wine, broth and tomato sauce. Stir up the flavorings from the
    bottom.  Return the meat to the pot.
    
    Cover the dutch oven and simmer slowly for about 2 - 2 1/2 hours. 
    When the meat is done, remove it from the dutch oven again, and slice
    into chunks.  Return the meat to the pot and add the beans, the elbow
    macaroni and the chicken broth.  Simmer covered until the elbows are
    cooked, about 10 minutes more.  Stir the stew frequently while the
    elbows and beans are cooking.  Salt and pepper to taste and serve.

    INFO:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor, with the help of
    Richard Webb 1:116/901 (Old School ToolBox), and Sean Dennis 1:18/200
    (The Slightly Crusty Sysop).  If you have an idea for a column or a
    series of articles, please contact me :)
    
    New! 
    MailingList subsriptions via 
    www.filegate.net // lists / ?p=subscribe
    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... lacking that, I will fill these issues 
    with my meanderings and thoughts and hopefully we will grow into 
    something of consequence here :)
    
    Write an article!
    
    If you WOULD like to submit an article, feel free to drop
    your article off at:
    
    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  
    (If you are using routed fidonet mail, don't send articles as routed 
    attaches.  They will fail somewhere along the path before getting here.
    Send them instead 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)).
     
    To send reviews or recipes to the Food section, email or netmail Janis
    as above.
    
    Email address for submissions to Dr.Debug:
      To send a question to Dr. Debug, email a question to:
          drdebug @  filegate.net 
      or post in the fidogazette echo!  :)
    
      To send a listing to the FidoGazette bbslist, email your 
      listing to:
        bbslist @ filegate.net 
      or post it in the fidogazette echo!
