    Thanks to all who wished us an easy move ;)  It was uneventual
    for me, though my son's system decided it had had enough. He
    wanted a new system anyway he says so not such a big deal.
    
    With the cooking echo picnic starting tomorrow, I've been
    unpacking at well er... lightning speeds haha.. A bit more to
    go.. then we'll later add whatever we need like bookshelves to
    accomodate the 50-some boxes of books in the basement.. Thanks
    to our friends who helped us make the move, though I noticed my
    sewing machine cabinet was upstairs while my sewing machine was
    downstairs hehe.. We'll get there eventually, as far as that
    kind of organizing goes.
    
    We're both looking forward to the picnic, meanwhile knowing it's
    coming up has been a good excuse to test a number of Ithaca's
    restaurants.  Reports to follow.

                    Connecting the Wetware, Part XI.
    
    A positive anarchy can work very well on a small scale, but the
    larger it gets the more you need to work at keeping everybody
    working together.  A perfect example of this is google and its
    interaction with usenet.  Before Google archived everything usenet
    there was dejanews, which they bought out.  The folks running
    dejanews were diligent about limiting spam and keeping the spirit
    of cooperation alive.  
    
    Google on the other hand is considered by many usenet regulars to
    be a bad usenet citizen, and poor neighbor.  Those who use google
    groups to read usenet are always complaining about the high
    incidence of spam posts, google's constant tinkering with the user
    interface, etc.  Not that google doesn't have its uses.  If you
    want to look at archived posts that will have scrolled off most
    usenet servers google is the place to go.  But, as a usenet
    neighbor they are considered anything but a good neighbor.  Their
    interest is selling the advertising that goes along with your
    access.  Hence, many popular news servers, albasani supernews and
    others are running what they call "clean feed" which does fairly
    well at blocking the spam.  Some just go with the nuclear option,
    and nuke anything posted from google groups.
    
    So, we see that usenet has its own major difficulties with
    fostering that spirit of positive anarchy.  After all, google does
    provide a valuable service to the net citizen with its archival
    facilities.  Cutting google off completely can't be done, they'll
    get a feed somewhere by golly.  Beside that, I don't know anybody
    who would really want usenet to lose those archives. When a subject
    comes up in many of the technical newsgroups that should be covered
    in a faq file but isn't posters are quick to suggest that the
    original poster consult the usenet archives via google.  Without
    that archival capability usenet would be much the poorer.  You win
    some, you lose some.
    
    Why did Dejanews seem to care, where google doesn't?  The
    owners/operators of dejanews were usenet denizens from the early
    days.  They'd gotten their usenet education by the old hands. 
    These days, if you know where to look on usenet you can still get
    that cultural education, but you have to know where to look. 
    Google, being populated by later comers, and younger folks didn't
    get that usenet indoctrination.  After all, the web was the place
    they went on the net looking for information, not usenet.  
    
    Fidonet with its weekly organ Fidonews would appear to have a
    distinct advantage there.  After all, you don't have to subscribe
    to a certain echo to learn about the arcane workings of Fidonet. 
    To learn about usenet you had to subscribe to certain newsgroups,
    which many didn't and don't.  But still it's there.  Again,
    Fidonews would appear to give Fidonet an edge when it comes to
    educating users and sysops.  Usenet, as noted earlier  had the
    advantage of all the system administrators and maintainers who were
    initiated to its culture before they became system administrators. 
    they often learned about it in college.  Fidonet on the other hand,
    as pointed out in earlier columns didn't have that advantage.  But
    Fidonet had a publication that was supposed to be made available to
    users and sysops throughout the net.  Again, contrast this with
    usenet where the administration happens totally behind the scenes
    and you had to know where to go to learn.
    
    The failure to resolve the disconnect between the technical and
    social workings of Fidonet over the years had, and has
    consequences.  Though some would argue that it's too late to
    attempt resolution now a failure to do so could result in further
    decline.  Newcomers and old hands alike still need to be informed
    and educated.  Those looking at proposed technical standards need
    to be able to communicate with those impacted by them.   
    Sociopolitical considerations will continue to bump up against the
    technical operation frequently.   Here again, allow me to 
    illustrate.
    
    If you are reading this article as an echomail message then you
    will note that there is a time stamp on the message.  Every message
    has one, and whether you're using your favorite qwk reader or a
    sysop message editor, or the bbs software itself you'll see this
    time stamp.  Yet that time stamp gives you plenty of information
    but not reliable information.  
    
    Are you shaking your head at this one?  Stay with me a minute.  I
    live in the central time zone in North America.  let us say that I
    compose an echomail message or usenet article in a few minutes.   
    Daylight savings time is observed here.  So, let us say that I
    enter that message at 9:34 A.M. local time here.  
    
    Yet, for a variety of reasons my system clock is not set to local
    time, but coordinated universal time.  So, that message would show
    a time stamp of May 3 at 14:34.  
    
    There were two attempts at resolving this usually irrelevant but
    occasionally important issue by the standards folks, but both fell
    a bit short of the mark.  The folks who developed software for file
    distribution had a bit better handle on it though.  For file
    distribution, i.e. tic etc. Dos and os2 systems would set an
    environment variable tz, in format quite similar to the data format
    in the relevant control line for messages.  The next logical step
    would have been for software used to create messages to actually
    look at this environment variable if set, and then depending on the
    vintage of the software write the tzutc or tzutcinfo kludge line to
    the message, enabling readers and bbs software to  display time
    stamps with truly reliable information.
    
    The point I'm making here is that all these little parts of the
    organization work in apparent isolation from each other.   Both
    Usenet and Fidonet have fallen short of the mark when it comes to
    disseminating key pieces of information which will enable their
    versions of positive anarchy to continue to function smoothly. 
    There's always been an assumption that those who need it will know
    where to go to acquire it.  Obviously this isn't true.  Are there
    ways to remedy this situation?  I believe there are, and i'll
    discuss them in future columns.

    BBBS News
    by Janis Kracht, 1:261/38, janis@filegate.net
    
    Rudi Timmermans has written a great addon for BBBS that lets you do nodelist
    lookups, plus a bit more!
    
    This is something that always drove me crazy about BBBS.. much
    as I love the software, it was just a pia to always have to
    manually look up the correct spelling of someone's name or
    his/her node number..  Rudi's program, Enhancement BBBS Module
    v2.1.0 takes care of nodelist lookups and much more.
    
    You can check your netmail, write a netmail, just do a nodelist
    lookup, add to an address book, or display the address book. 
    When you select (W)rite a Netmail, you are given the option to
    type in what you would like to search for..  The keyword can be
    the first name, first and last name, partial or entire node
    number, town, or any keyword that will help your search.
    
    You can then type in or copy/paste the information right on the
    screen..  couldn't be easier!

    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 :)  
    
    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.  
    
    Our new house:
    2682 Slaterville Road, 
    Slaterville Springs, NY 14881
    Phone number: 607-200-4074
    
    Hope to see you there!

    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!
