    The FTSC election has concluded - with a total  of 16 RCs
    voting, along with 3 RECs...  that includes as I noted in my
    article, "And the Winners are...", 9 of 10 Zone 1 RCs voting,
    but only _7_ out of 20 Z2 RCs casting a vote.  Of the few
    RECs that also also voted, 1 was from Zone 1, and 2 from
    Zone2..
    
    And still, in my Email folder  Ward Dossche still mentions,
    in his words to some people, "charades as we just witnessed
    in the FTSC-election".
    
    Charades??  The only charades I saw in the election at all
    was Bjorn Felten's propensity to put his own foot in his
    mouth..  possibly more than once.  
    
    Anyway, I'm glad to see that our Zone 1 RCs read the echo,
    and obviously so did the members of their regions.  Over here
    in Zone 1, I felt we were fairly represented.  A good number
    of those Z1 RCs that voted consulted their regional members.

    Region 16 
    
    When Jerry Schwartz R16C decided that it was necessary to
    rebuild his system at some point in the future, it was
    suggested by Jerry that Andrew Leary take over as RC.  The
    region was polled by Andrew as my request as to their
    preferences and no objections to Andrew serving as the next
    R16C were found.
    
    As of nodelist.350, Andrew Leary will be in the nodelist as
    R16C. Thanks for helping out, Andrew, and Congratulations
    :)

    What Not to Do After an Exhausting Day...
    by Janis Kracht, 1:261/38,janis@filegate.net
    
    I'm sure you know the kind of day I'm going to describe..
    especially given the time of year.
    
    On Tuesday, December 13th, refrains of "Jingle Bell Rock"
    and "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" and more were piped
    in the department stores and malls as weary shoppers
    converged on the latest greatest deals, hoping to finish
    up or for us, just darn start Christmas shopping!
    
    One met with the typical types that day in the aisles..
    "The Vacant Stare" shopper who is totally unaware of
    everything and everyone around him or her..  these guys
    SHOVE other shoppers, and GRAB what they want, or worse
    yet race down aisles as if the end of the world is near,
    and turn corners at blazing speeds, not noticing who they
    may ram into...  "The Cell-Phone Shopper" who can't make
    a decision by himself or herself without consulting a
    mate via phone..  These types are so wrapped up in taking
    on the phone that they're unaware that we're not all
    interested in their momentous decisions or choices.  The
    "Undecided Shopper", who decides that the space in front
    of that Samurai Castle belongs to _him_ and him alone, so
    that no one else can even get close to check out the
    price or features.  I'm sure you've seen them all :)
    
    But we persevered.. Days are getting short to the
    Holiday, for sure.  And if you don't get out there now
    chances are that Samurai Castle will be gone, as will that
    Erector set with a 6Volt battery motor..  So, we stuck it
    out.  And it seems that even though everyone is bemoaning
    the fact that they are broke, darn, this is Christmas -
    and I guess as usual plastic still works well for people
    :)
    
    So after a good 5 hours of battling the public (this year
    we decided to skip ordering online with it's often
    extensive added shipping costs) we returned home a little
    worse for the wear..  and I made some dinner..  nothing
    fancy that night, but sausage and peppers always goes
    over big here.  The worst thing about a dinner like that
    is you have to stand there and watch it..  somewhat at
    least..  or if your stove is like mine, it will total the
    vegetables and burn the sausage..  more time on your feet
    I could have done without :)
    
    Next, after dinner we decided to watch the episode of
    Dexter (Serial killer, you can only love ) that we
    missed on Sunday..  that felt good..  Just laying around
    watching the idiot box :) :) But I always feel that show
    is too short, and that evening was no different..  So
    finally, at the end of the day Ron and I turned to a
    mysql project that we hope will turn into something
    useful..  brain energy required..
    
    Next thing I know, it's approaching midnight and
    something in me said, hey, probably time to check out
    your system since you've been ignoring it all day. 
    Glancing at the system time, I noted it was just about
    Midnight..  and my cron event for creating the weekly
    nodelist hadn't run.  'Now what', I remember thinking.. 
    darn linux upgrades!  Sometimes they break more than they
    fix..  So I forced the event, not realizing one important
    detail..  it was TUESDAY not Thursday :)
    
    So, the nodelist went out to the world, the web pages at
    filegate.net were updated.  I got an email from Bob
    Seaborn the next morning..  "What's up??"..  I remember
    saying to myself "expletive-deleted" Geez..  guess I
    jumped the gun on that one .
    
    Solutions: 
    Sadly because the nodelist went out after Tuesday, most 
    systems probably processed it unless your system keys 
    the nodelist update to the day of the week, namely 
    Thursday/Friday.  If your system did apply nodelist.350, 
    you'll have to back your system up to nodelist.343 so 
    that tonight's Nodelist can be applied correctly.
    
    If you don't have nodelist.343 on your system somewhere,
    you can pick it up here.
    
    Freq NODELIST for nodelist.z43 (zip archive) or NODEDIFF
    for nodediff.a43
    
    Via Binkp: 
    filegate.net:24554 (standard port) 
    Freqs don't seem to work on my bbbs Binkp on port 24555.
    
    Via Modem: 
    File request at 1:261/38, 607-655-5652.
    
    Needless to say, the web pages at filegate.net have also
    been updated to remove the early NODELIST.Z50 and
    NODEDIFF.A50.

    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!
