    Yes - moving must be the biggest drag that people have to
    endure.  How to get 3 dogs and 4 cats to the new residence
    (without all of them deciding to have a flame fest in our back
    seat!!) - Should be fun rid.  Oh, we'll get there..  it's just
    prospects of sitting in a car with all that fuzz is not my idea
    of a good time :)
    
    Anyway.. this Saturday is the big move from Windsor to our new
    home in Slaterville Springs, NY.  My system may be down for a
    while on Friday, or Saturday as I move the system to it's new
    location, and configure the zone pages, etc. for filegate.net.
    I'll be back certainly sometime Saturday afternoon at the
    latest.  This Thursday night's nodelist won't be affected.
    
    Happy 4th of July to all our American friends.. Ron and I will
    still be packing, so enjoy the holiday for us! :)

    I've stated before in this space that any organization which
    operates on the principle of anarchy must make education a high
    priority if it wishes to survive.  My recent description of my
    adventures as a hub illustrate this.  At first we put time and
    effort into educating new sysops and users.  As time went by though
    this soon went by the boards, as it did within Fidonet  elsewhere. 
    After all, we were busy people with lives other than operating bbs
    systems.  After the new had worn off the core group remained
    active, but the other sysops in the cooperative were just
    interested in keeping the cost of mail down, and found that there
    was less time to be Fidonet ambassadors to the community at large. 
    
    Our little cooperative was quite active at first in educating
    users, and recruiting sysops to join Fidonet.  WE held seminars at
    the public library about three times a year and met occasionally
    for lunch somewhere on a Saturday to talk things over.  Many local
    nets did this.  But, the age of the Zone wide Fidonet convention
    was gone about the same time Ifna went toes up.  like many local
    nets r little cooperative worked together to promote the bbs scene,
    and Fidonet at first, but eventually the cost recovery wars took
    their toll on cooperation in any form.   Not just did we have no
    cohesiveness on a local level, but Fidonet in the macro sense had
    none.  The days of the regional and zone wide meetings  had come
    and gone.
    
    Some local nets continued the practice of in person sysop
    gatherings for many years, but many did not.  Without these in
    person gatherings and the cohesiveness required by one distribution
    scheme for echomail and files the feeling that we all need to work
    together also disappeared.  After all, if you and a few other folks
    are getting your mail via the bird, and another group in the same
    city is lucky enough to have a sugar daddy pulling his mail via ftp
    and distributing it for the cost of his internet connection then
    you have no reason to work together.  In fact, the guy providing
    the feed from the dish probably found his customers running away en
    masse.  Competition trumped cooperation in many places.  Who gets
    it cheaper?  In our case, our "net" was the entire eastern third of
    the state. Hence, nobody there who was carrying the banner of
    Fidonet wide cohesiveness and education, except maybe Marge Robins
    with her Fidonet history project.
    
    Our local cooperative was also a good indicator of how the rank and
    file looked at Fidonet as a whole back then.  Within our
    cooperative there wasn't one of us paid any attention to Fidonet
    politics outside our crp.  Big issues weren't on our radar.  As
    long as we got our echomail and our routed netmail got where it was
    going, or appeared to we didn't have time.  Yes, I read fn_sysop,
    and I read Fidonews, as did at least one other sysop in our
    cooperative, but we really didn't have time to get involved.  I was
    piecing together an existence from a variety of endeavors, which
    meant sometimes working 12 hour days, sometimes gone for almost a
    week at a time, even during the days when our local cooperative was
    actually cooperating and active.  Of the two other active member
    sysops one was a stay at home mom who was active in PTA and other
    community organizations.  The other was a young man with a growing
    family, and two part-time jobs.  Zone-wide or international Fidonet
    politics weren't showing up on their radar either.  
    
    To be rather blunt about it, some of the loudest voices shouting
    about Fidonet politics weren't making their points in a manner
    which was lucid enough for me to want to get involved either.  At
    our local meetings nobody was talking about larger issues impacting
    Fidonet as a whole.    We were concerned about reliable netmail
    routing, and controlling  costs.    Why bother with the big
    picture?  We didn't have a vote anyway.
    
    Through all of this you'd think that in a medium based on textual
    communication somebody would have bothered to carry the baton of
    education, especially in Fidonews.  The weekly official organ could
    have been a big part of the solution, but instead was part of the
    problem, even then.  
    
    In Fidonews of the early and mid 1990s  you had two voices
    attempting anything that resembled education, of course Dog Logger
    with his satirical pieces, and Bob Moravsic.  OF the two, I
    preferred to read logger, at least he was literate and could string
    sentences together.    When Chris Baker took overeditorship he'd
    tell you bluntly he'd publish articles regarding echomail, but he
    really didn't care about it.  Although he again tried to give the
    sysops some historical perspective he didn't wish to address the
    main reason they connected with the net in the first place.  Hence,
    no educational help there.  Editors after Chris made a halfhearted
    effort on occasion, but Fidonews after Chris baker seemed to
    consist mainly of ascii comics, the same forwarded jokes and feel
    good stories I'd already seen in my email, and little to actually
    educate users and sysops.  The editors can't be blamed for all of
    this however.  There was no mechanism in place for anybody to give
    the editor any guidance or sense of direction.  Forwarded email
    dreck at least provided something for folks to read who might not
    have received it because they only communicated through Fidonet.  
    
    Next time, a discussion of a similar problem modern Usenet faces,
    and discussion of things we can do to improve the situation.

    Fidonet Cooking Echo Picnic - Dates extended
    By Janis Kracht, 1:261/38, janis@filegate.net
    
    The Fidonet Cooking Echo Picnic dates for 2012 are 
    July 19, 20, 21, 22, 23.
    
    If you are somewhere even close to Ithaca, NY, on that weekend,
    and think you might like to join us, you can just stop in for
    one day if you like, or get a room at one of the inns nearby if
    you'd like to stick around for the entire event :)  We can put
    some people up here in our new house, but need to know in
    advance if you'll be taking us up on that.
    
    While the name of this event is a "Cooking Echo Picnic", it is
    so much more than that :)  We do typically go outside and party
    at times , but we also just go with the flow at the
    moment, depending on what people would like to do.  There are
    excursions to local restaurants (some of them quite famous
    nationally, like the Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca), and other
    sites of interest to people.
    
    Another big favorite will most likely be a visit to the Ithaca
    Farmers Market, which has been called a "Festival" with over 130
    vendors.  Plants, vegetables, meals, farmers who sell grass-fed
    beef, pork and lamb, and more are typically available. 
    Craftsmen also bring their artistic wares, like artwork,
    jewelry, etc.
    
    At the house, we'll have stocked cupboards and most likely wine,
    beer and other beverages.. you can bring anything you want to
    share with people, as well.  
    
    This weekend is the big move to our new place.  The street address
    is 2682 Slaterville Road, Slaterville Springs, NY.  I don't have a 
    phone number for the house yet, but check the FIDOGAZETTE echo in
    the next few days.

    INFO:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor, with the
    help of Richard Webb 1:116/901 (Old School ToolBox).  If
    you have an idea for a column or a series of articles,
    please contact me :)
    
    New! 
    Mailing-List subscriptions 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 sparsity 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 
     Binkp: 1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555 
     telnet mailer: filegate.net
    
    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.
       
    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!
