• File distribution

    From Vincent Coen@2:250/1 to All on Tue Jan 11 17:27:03 2022
    Hello All!

    As most of you now know Janis Kracht of 2:261/38 - the Filegate administrator has shut down her servers as of 31 December 2021 and I have taken over that role.

    I will also be maintaining the file FILEGATE.ZXX and it other files in FG_WORF such as FILEGATE.HDR and FDNINFO.ZIP (which is woefully out of date).

    To that end if any of you were acting as file distribution sources to Janis and
    the Filegate please get in touch with me via netmail { 2:250/1 } or as a email {vbcoen < at > gmail.com to continue using myself as host.

    I have also set up some of the key Filegate Hubs to act as back to myself so that we send and receive file and echo's between us to ensure flow in the event
    of another one of us closing down to to hardware or health etc.
    Each will be provided with the contact details both Netmail and Email where ever possible for all archive providers for when such a event occurs and we all
    know that it will at some point in time - we are all getting older :(

    I am also happy to start including files destined for other networks to make it
    a perfect source for all program file archives etc although this will involve extra effort to minimise any issues such as duplication of file names etc.

    Famous last words :)
