16 September / FUNCTION (quip)
Just a note to you scenesters who were wondering:

Due to certain technical problems among the senior staff of Function, the group will not release a September pack, but expect us to be back in October for sure.

More reason to the absence of the September pack will be included in the infofile of the October pack.

Image, leader of uprise, has killed off his group, claiming that bad press, namely from two scene citizens, has given his group little reason for existence.

Legion #6 is a great pack & if you don't have it by now, you should be aware that you are missing out big time. it features amazing work from all your favorites : fever, maestro, reanimator, silver rat, filth, sultan, eerie, & newcomer nail of fire fame! (did that last part sound corny or what?)

10 September / #HIREZ BACK TO NORMAL (atom)

Every thing in #hirez seems back to normal, so no worry now... I talked to rw, he said that the taker was just holding it until someone in controll came back (yeah sure :P)... rw showed one of them his +m on the bot, and they let everyone back in. no worries!

[ed note: in other words it looks like image did not take #hirez?]

09 September / #HIREZ TAKER IP ADDRESSES (mongi)

I got some addresses from the botlog in #hirez of some
guys, which are probably the overtakers. is the guy who actually got ops and deopped everyone. He took the channel in a split.

Other IPs that are suspicious: - opped by IP #1. - got ops the same time as the fist guy in the split.

The first guy was known as [-ST33L-] and l3rk (two users). the second IP was known as Raeg0ol. And the last IP was known as Trev.

I would really appreciate if someone could get the channel back. I
have no idea who they were and why they did it.

09 September / FIRE #33 OUT! (nail)
Some of you might have been waiting for it, some not, it's out anyway...the final combustion with just a few months delay.

Please note that with the last pack we finally made it back to our schedule... released on 09.09., thanks for your patience and for only kicking god among lice from a few channels, not me...

09 September / AWARDS98 (dangermouse)
I suppose a lot of you are wondering what the hell happened to awards98 -- well nothing has. It will be held in early January 1999. The reason for this is that well, we'll get all of 1998 in won't we :)

Also look for an easy voting system based on the web for this event. In around a month the nonimations lists will be placed on the awards98 site, and you can make comments on them -- adding/deleting people, etc..

09 September / #HIREZ2 (dangermouse)

A major topic of discussion in #hirez2 today was the retaking of #hirez, which was taken over by some sorry ass idiot sometime today or yesterday. Woo woo..

08 September / WOEZINE (pogue)

Woezine needs articles, news for their issue #8 which is being worked on.. We only have some articles and these articles wouldnt even fill up a lil text file ;)... give us some respons,articles,news ... the emag isnt possible without YOUR help...

06 September / ICE PACK - SEPT. 4TH (massd)
The iCEPack did come out on the fourth, and as we've been debating a bit around here, it was because of pack quality that it came out the 4th and not the 1st.

We decided to wait for three people to turn in their work, and thus, the pack was born.

We released unforgivably late last month, which was my fault, so now we're back on track to release timely.

Remember guys, there's always another month, and in the big scheme of things, releasing on the first IS important, but we will continue to consider quality/quantity as an issue in addition to timeliness, we believe that is in our best interests.

After all, five years from now when someone looks at the packs, they don't remember if it was on time, but it will remain forever obvious if the pack sucked. =)
