    Richard's Toolbox column delves into something which I've always
    felt was important in our hobby..  cooperation.  It reminded me
    of the beginnings of the FileGate.  Cooperation is the basis on
    which the IFDC FileGate was 'built' back in 1993/94, and in my
    mind, is the reason it continues on after so many years.
    
    One thing I realized once I was involved in file distribution is
    that if you don't have the cooperation of everyone involved, not
    only can chaos result, but that chaos can also quickly devolve
    into dangerous or risky situations on many people's personal
    systems.
    
    For example... if one system in the pile of FileGate HUBs
    doesn't test the files he distributes for virus/trojan ware,
    that danger can be passed up and down the chain of connected
    systems.  We needed people to agree to test files before jumping
    on the hatch, or file-release, bandwagon.
    
    In our lawsuit-happy society, those who distribute copy-righted
    material without permission also put connected systems at
    financial risk..  And yes, international law has to be taken
    into account with this type of thing.  There have been times
    when sites and or authors have contacted me as administrator of
    the FileGate because permission was never sought for traffic
    distributed.  In a case like that, the file(s) had to be removed
    by hatching blank files in place of the original ones.
    
    One of the things we stressed when working on the FileGate
    policy draft was that the cooperation required amongst the
    coordinators and HUBs should be a simple thing, since 'we're all
    in it for the same reason': To distribute files and get them
    into the hands of users and sysops alike.  It was so important
    to us as we ventured away from the original "filebone", that we
    incorporated "cooperation" in the name of our distribution:
    The letters "IFDC" stand for "International File Distribution
    Cooperative".

                     Connecting the Wetware, Part IV
    
    The Fidonet pioneers had some pretty big challenges ahead of them
    when you think about it.  Their first order of business was to
    design a network which could adapt to changes with a minimum of
    disruption for the systems already communicating.  Any changes that
    were needed had to fit into the environment that already existed so
    as to enable those systems already using it to keep functioning. 
    That can be a pretty daunting task right there.  Remember that
    there were numerous different operating systems with varying
    capabilities networked together.  This wasn't the monolithic
    network architecture such as you might find at the office, where
    all the workstations  are the same and their interconnection and
    management of data is defined.  One Fidonet node might be a PC with
    floppy drives only, the next a machine with limited memory using a
    garden variety cassette tape as its storage medium.  Fidonet had to
    fit in that environment.  
    
    Beyond this, Fidonet was intended to be essentially anarchist in
    principle, do what you will, so long as you answer the phone with
    the right protocol at the proper time of day.  Echomail was still
    on the horizon, automated file distribution not even considered. 
    By the time they got around to Fidonet policy version 4.07 there
    was indeed echomail, and the layout of the network was well
    defined.  Still the framers of policy didn't want to drill down too
    deep into the social order.   This was both the good news, and the
    bad news for our period of explosive growth.  
    
    The good news was of course that the framers of p4 wished to
    preserve those anarchist principles.  Since there are some relative
    newcomers to Fidonet among us let's dispel some myths and
    misconceptions about them so that we all know what it is that we're
    actually discussing when we talk about anarchy in relation to
    networks.  
    
    Anarchy in its positive sense shares many characteristics with
    libertarianism.  When most modern folks from western societies
    consider anarchy and anarchists at all they're inclined to think of
    unruly mobs chucking bricks and homemade incendiary devices through
    windows and other such behavior.  But, if you were to ever sit down
    and converse with most anarchist types you'd find that they have a
    strong belief in social justice and a cooperative society.  The
    major difference is that the anarchist believes that voluntary
    cooperation among individuals is far superior to cooperation
    coerced by governments and other authority figures.  If you were to
    converse with them any length of time at all you'd find out that in
    many cases they believe in fairness, are not quick to judge others
    who deviate from the normal, and are quite willing to judge a
    person by his/her actions.  
    
    Although folks in the U.S. and much of the developed world think of
    ourselves as living in free societies we're still predisposed to
    think in terms of rules and regulations.  The cop judge or governor
    is an authority figure, as is the chairman of the board or the
    administrator.  If we rent our dwelling our landlord has rules.  If
    we work for another to earn our living there are certain rules.  If
    others work for us we have promulgated certain rules and standards
    of behavior for our employees.  If we participate in certain
    organized sporting activities the referee or umpire is an authority
    figure, as are the competition judges.  Our lives are replete with
    rules procedures and standards.  We engage in very few activities
    on a regular basis that aren't defined by a rulebook.  If we play
    golf with friends one day a week we know that certain clubs or
    balls are frowned upon if used on the links.  We know that if we
    hunt or fish we cannot hunt or fish in certain places, can only take
    certain numbers of our sought after prey.  We must drive on the
    proper side of the road or street, obey the traffic signs and
    signals.  If we sing in the church choir we must follow the signals
    of the choir director.  If we own a home in certain neighborhoods
    the homeowners' association dictates what we may place in our
    yards, prohibits painting our house certain colors, limits our
    placement of privacy hedges and fences; the keeping of certain
    animals; , etc.  Web forums and internet listservs limit our posts
    to certain topics.  In most of our daily activities we bump up
    against all sorts of arcane rules and procedures that we must
    follow.  
    
    We are also quick to think in terms of laws an hierarchies in our
    daily lives.  We are a culture that is quick to say "there ought to
    be a law ... " mandating a behavior or prohibiting a behavior or
    action we find distasteful.  We're even quicker to say "there ought
    to be a law ... ' to keep somebody else from doing something, not
    to regulate ourselves.  It's always the "other guy" that ought to
    be prohibited from engaging in this or that activity.  The thought
    of getting our neighbor's cooperation by self restraint never
    enters our minds.  
    
    We are conditioned to think in terms of mandates and prohibitions
    imposed from without, not cooperative agreements among individuals
    to get the result we wish.  After all, cooperation is a messy thing
    which must be nurtured if you wish to keep it going.   Newcomers
    have to be educated as to the informal agreement, and then if they
    don't wish to be part of said agreement you have a problem.  In any
    endeavor which governs itself under principles of positive anarchy
    you'll find that most of the conventions which appear to be rules
    are by mutual agreement, and not codified in any formal rulebook or
    document.  
    
    Newcomers to such a group can easily misunderstand what's actually
    codified in such a rule book or document, and what's a standard of
    behavior or procedure  only through mutual agreement.  It's quite
    easy for such a neophyte to make some invalid assumptions based on
    his observations.  It's far easier to learn as one learns the game
    of golf what is forbidden in the organized sport and how to avoid
    running afoul of the rulebook, as governing bodies have set such
    rules down in documents which can be accessed and read.  A friendly
    disagreement, or one not so friendly with another player can easily
    be resolved by consulting the codified rules.  It's much more
    difficult when the party you disagree with can't point you to the
    relevant text discussing your infraction but just says "because we
    don't do it that way."  
    
    So, the good news is that the framers of p4 left these principles
    pretty much intact, but that then brings us to the bad news, and
    we'll save that for next time.

    Italian Meatballs
    by Janis Kracht, 1:261/38, janis@filegate.net
    
    Italian meatballs make the best sandwiches - warmed up as
    leftovers, or served at a party or get-together, they usually
    disappear much too quickly.  This recipe can be doubled easily. 
    One recipe as below will make about 10 meatballs.
    
    The secret to a perfect meatball is the inclusion of ground pork
    in the mix.  If I have to, I'll even use a few sweet Italian
    sausage links removed from their casing, instead of unseasoned
    ground pork.
    
    This recipe is my mom's.  This weekend is her funeral so I dedicate
    this section to her memory.
    
    Polpetto  - Italian Meatballs
    about 10 meatballs
    
    3/4 pound ground beef (chuck or round, but please use grass-fed
        beef for the best flavor and texture)
    1/4 pound ground pork
    1 cup Italian flavored bread crumbs
    1 slice Italian bread, dipped in water, and then squeezed to
      remove excess water.
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/4 cup fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 cup freshly grated locatelli romano cheese
    1 egg
    
    Olive oil to cover skillet 1/2" for frying.
    
    Mix ground beef, ground pork and other ingredients with your
    hands until combined well.  Shape into balls about 1 1/2 inches
    wide.  The best way to do this is to make a cup with your hands,
    and to roll the meat tightly into balls.
    
    Cover bottom of skillet with 1/2" of olive oil.  Cook the
    meatballs over medium-high heat until well browned on all sides. 
    Either turn frequently, or move pan back and forth sharply but
    slowly to cause meatballs to roll by themselves.  If you move
    the frying pan sharply back and forth to turn them, be careful
    you don't spill oil as you are frying.
    
    If you don't brown the meatballs enough, the meatballs will fall
    apart in your tomato sauce, so brown them until they are a deep
    golden brown.  Drain the meatballs after browning on a plate
    covered with a paper towel.
    
    The meatballs may be added to tomato sauce and simmered for 20
    minutes after browning.
    
    Mom's Tomato Meat Sauce 
    
    This is her recipe for tomato sauce, a basic one which can be
    used to simmer meatballs.  If you add other meats like pork butt
    with bone or ribs, end cuts, and beef shoulder or chuck roast,
    you have mom's Bolongnaise meat sauce for the holidays, or weekend
    dinner for a crowd.  For that Bolongnaise, with added meats, you'd
    probably want to double the tomatoes used below.
    
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/3 cup olive oil
    2 large cans (2-pounds 3-ounces) Italian whole tomatoes, or
      3 bottles Bionaturae Tomatoes (24 oz. each).
    6oz Italian tomato paste
    1 lb. Sweet Italian Sausage, browned
    1 recipe meatballs (above)
    salt
    pepper
    red pepper flakes
    1 tablespoon dry basil
    1 tablespoon dry oregano
    1/4 cup dry red wine
    
    Brown the sausage in a frying pan and reserve.
    Make the meatballs above.
    
    Heat olive oil in large pot or saucepan.  I often use a dutch
    oven or deep cast-iron pot for this.  Saute garlic until yellow
    and tender.  Put the tomatoes in a blender for a moment to break
    up whole tomatoes.  Add the tomatoes to the pot, add salt and
    pepper to taste, oregano and basil leaf.  Add the reserved
    sausage, and meatballs.  Simmer for about 2-3 hours over very
    low heat stirring gently, but often.  When stirring sauce with
    meatballs in it, it's important to stir gently..  Check the
    flavor of the sauce, sometimes meatballs absorb all the salt in
    the sauce, so you may need to correct the seasoning.  Add 1/3
    cup dry red wine and simmer for 10 more minutes.

    INFO:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor, with the
    help of Richard Webb 1:116/901 (Old School ToolBox).  If
    you have an ideKa 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 
     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!
