    We're happy to see RCs and RECs voting in the FTSC election.  
    This isn't a time when voter apathy should be an issue IMO.

    As Ward stated to me in the Z1C echo, we're also happy to 
    have a good number of volunteers for these positions.  Again,
    I'd like to thank all who are running for these seats as I 
    did in the last issue of Fidonews.  These people who document
    current practice in our network allow our software to be 
    updated.

    Using Hatch with Replace
    Janis Kracht, 1:261/38, janis@filegate.net
    
    Most of our tic processors let you use the the replace
    function.  This keyword was originally included in Barry
    Gellar's Tick v2.10, and is generally included in full-
    functioning tick packages like Allfix, HTick, and others.
    
    The idea was that as a new version of a package is released
    in a Fidonet File distribution, an author or FDN
    coordinator would want to remove an older version of a
    package, replacing it with a newer version.
    
    Not all FDNs use replace - some FDNs would rather, like the
    PDN, maintain all copies of software for historical
    and archival purposes.  In this day of cheaper drive space,
    keeping older files around wouldn't seem to be a problem.
    
    In some areas though, replacing a file _is_ important.  In
    areas where Linux packages are released, this is especially
    important because of security and problems with older
    libraries.  Those really old packages from the 1990's and
    such may not even compile on today's linux boxes due to
    incompatibilities of later versions of gcc, and various
    libraries that are used in the compile process.  Generally
    speaking, you are going to see more packages that need to
    be compiled in an area that releases linux files; in other
    words, you generally won't see many binary (executible)
    pre-compiled programs in a linux area, for example..  so
    again, the need to hatch with replace becomes obvious.  So
    when I release files in the PDNUNIX file area, I'll usually
    use replace with those files.
    
    Barry Gellar's tick makes hatching with replace an easy
    thing to do if you've got the REPLACE keyword in your
    tic.cfg file.
    
    On the command line a DOS command like the following would
    do the trick:
    
    HATCH /aSOFTDIST /fFOOV2.ZIP /dThis is the description
    /xFOOV1.ZIP >>  logfile.log
    
    BBBS makes it even easier:
    
    ./bbbs bhatch -foov1.zip foov2.zip softdist
    
    With BBBS, you don't need to specify a log, since your bbbs
    config takes care of that.
    
    Husky tic's docs looks to me like you would use replace it
    this way:
    
    hatch   [replace []] [desc ]
    hatch foo2.zip softdist replace foo1.zip description

    FTSC Election Methods
    By Janis Kracht, 1:261/38, janis@filegate.net
    
    The ftsc election for additonal and returning standing
    members concludes on Sunday 11th December 20:00 UTC.
    
    Hopefully by then all of our RCs and RECs will have voted. 
    Hopefully as well, RCs will have polled the members of
    their regions so that the feelings of the members of that
    region are taken into account.
    
    As usual, R13C Michael Luko has done so.  Thank you
    Michael!
    
    We use a password system in R13, so anononimity is
    guaranteed when Michael posts the results of our elections.
    
    So, for instance a network member can choose any user name
    and password, and include it in his netmail to Michael if
    he or she desires:
    
    Subj.: FTSC vote
    ======================
    Username:  wilecayote
    Password:  acmecorp
    Node number: mynode number
    vote:
    [...]
    
    
    
    When Michael, or our election coordinator post the results
    of our elections, you won't see the voting member's name
    or node number, just his or her username and password, and
    how they voted.  This allows the voting member to check
    that his vote was recorded correctly.
    
    It's my hope that other regions work out some similar
    method for elections.  That way people don't have to worry
    about repercussions regarding their own taste in elections,
    and perhaps would be more likely to vote.
    
    Some people in the Z1C echo have worried that all RCs and
    RECs may not take part in this election by casting a vote. 
    With such a simple method such as R13 uses, our voting
    turnout is generally good.  Perhaps the FTSC Chair might
    consider this method to protect privacy and encourage
    voting in future elections.  Just a thought..

    Janis's Very Garlic Chicken
    
    I was in mood.. I really wanted severly garlic-ed chicken
    ..  maybe that had to do with two Thanksgiving turkeys in
    about one week haha.. I _LOVE_ turkey with it's cripy skin,
    but afer a while you are definitely willing to wait a year
    to have it again.
    
    Whatever the reason, I wanted something seasoned to my
    taste.  YMMV :)
    
    2 1/2 -3lb chicken, disjointed, cut up into serving pieces
    1/2 cup butter (1 stick) 
    6 cloves garlic 
    1/4 tsp. garlic salt 
    1/2 tsp.  dry lemmon zest or zest from one lemmon 
    1 Tablespoon lemon juice 
    pepper 
    extra virgin olive oil
    
    Place the chicken pieces on a broiler pan.  Salt and pepper
    them lightly on both sides.  
    
    In a small bowl, cream the butter until soft.  Using the
    flat side of a large knife, crush the garlic cloves. 
    Remove the papery covering, and then mince the cloves of
    garlic.  Add to the butter.  Also add about 1/4 teaspoon
    garlic salt or an amount you are comfy with to the butter. 
    Knead the butter until completely combined.  Add the lemon
    zest and lemon juice to the butter and mix well.
    
    Loosen the skin of the pieces of chicken, and underneath
    the skin of each piece spread about a tablespoon of the
    butter mixture.  If you have any butter/garlic mixture left
    over, just spread it on top of the pieces, but underneath
    the skin is best.
    
    Drizzle EVO over the pieces lightly.
    
    Broil for 10 minutes skin side up.. then turn the pieces
    over and broil for 10 minutes more, or until the thigh's
    temperature in the thickest part measures 165 F.
    
    Heaven :)

    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!
