#071: Whee.

[F.U.C.K. is an e-zine that I started on January 24, 1993 and ended on January 24, 2000. One concept is that articles should be timeless if possible, so they were not released with dates. As such, the date on this blog is not exact but I will try to use a date as close as possible.]


Amazing. As you may have noticed, but probably didn’t, F.U.C.K. is now one year old. All things considered, not bad. I have been thinking on this file, and debating on whether or not to make it serious, or just stream of conscience but either way, I figured a quick little file with nothing too important would be nice, especially since we don’t have any humorous files from OD or anyone else recently.

A year ago, Doc Z and I sat down at IHOP and talked about how cool it would be to get any words out that we wanted, and we started thinking. I took it a little more seriously than he did, but either way, F.U.C.K. was born. As you can see, he wrote one file, and now doesn’t want anything to do with the group. Don’t ask why, but I think it was because BBSing became real political in 806 for a while. Anyway, lame place to BBS so stay out of 806 if you can help it, except Purple Hell. So we had my own board at the time as the only dist. site and we ULed them to a few places in 806. Now we have dist. sites in 9 area codes, some with a few boards in each. Not bad.

Throughout the year a lot has happened directly related to, or affecting the group. New people writing, new boards becoming dist. sites, some members dropping out, etc. I moved out of 806 as well and despite all that, we have stayed together somewhat. I must admit that we are a little smaller than before, and recently only three other people have been keeping up with things but hey, that’s how it goes. fastjack has now become a major part of the group and has kicked out some really good files. Since he expressed so much interest, I kinda dumped some ‘administrative’ shit on him and he handled that as well.

You have to take into account, that I can’t call long distance right now for various reasons so I rely on WWIVshitmail for a bulk of F.U.C.K. affairs. Anyway, fastjack is now handling dist. sites, distribution everywhere except 303, and some other stuff. So a ton of thanks goes out to him. Acid Warlock has kept up, written a little more, handled some distribution affairs, built up his board(call it) and been going to school, and once again, many thanx to him. Last, and sometimes least( 🙂 ) Max Headroom has kept me up to date on all the BULLSHIT that has been going on in 806. You’d be surprised at how much can go on.

I guess that is going to conclude it for me. Files are slowing down, but we are not out of the picture by any means. Hopefully you will keep reading them, passing them along, and words will get out and help this shithole we are forced to live in. So anyway, a few words from fastjack and some greets and that is all for now.

thanx to: DOS edit, stupid people, fastjack, TN0, H/P/V/C, internet, Max Headroom for finally mailing my disks, diet coke, music, VIRaXe, Taco Cabana and dollar margaritas, C.V.C.C., Loki, PGT, and more.

Well, this should please some folks. Yes, I’m off my ass and writing some little things. Gotta write this, cuz this is for F.U.C.K. for existing for over a year now. Neat.

Wellll, I would like to thank Dam for giving me the opportunity to write what I think, and what I feel about the world. I’d like to thank Larry for giving me an excuse to watch bad movies and write reviews about them. Other greets and thanks and all that suchstuff go out to AW, Zach D., Jakyl, all those folks I drank Shiner with, Zippy especially, the few 806 BBSers that don’t suck, and all that. /
