Our new newsletter 'UnderCurrents' has just gone out, the first newsletter from us in over two years. Also, to go along with that, it is now in html format, plus ANYONE and EVERYONE on Undernet can now subscribe to our undercurrents@ list to receive the e-newsletter every month. If you wish to do so, just go to... http://undernet.sbg.org/mailman/listinfo/undercurrents
and fill out to be subscribed and the request will be sent. We want this to be our biggest newsletter ever encompassing ALL of Undernet eventually, so feel free to join it. Although this is not a public list and it can not be replied to as it is set for publications to everyone of our newsletter only and not to receive emails on this list.

We also now have our own channel for the Newsletter Project, #newsletter. We would love to have you join us on Undernet as this channel was created to discuss our newsletter with everyone in Undernet hoping to make it the best, by you telling us your likes, dislikes and things you would like to see in it. We ask only that this not be a channel where you just park your nick or come to chat and meet people as it was created to benefit the Newsletter Project.

Last, if you would like to write for us, go to http://www.user-com.undernet.org/newsletter, then click on the submit an article link to send us your article. Or just send us your article at newsletter@undernet.org and we'll post it for you. We must say though, we accept nothing copyrighted without explicit permission attached in the article from the author and/or company, as we check each article for that. We also reserve the right to refuse articles at our discretion when we feel they are of questionable material(s)

Come join us and help make it better for ALL of Undernet! We want to include everyone around Undernet in this our new start to our Newsletter Project!!!! :D

Good work on getting the newsletter out last May .... but why did it stop? After 3 1/4 months, there has been no other edition? Has it been discontinued?

Undernet readers want to know! ;-)

We successfully completed an April newsletter. After that there were problems with the data base. If the database is not fixed within the next week Banjo intends to have an email only version out. This will not be available to view online. Only via email. You can subscribe to undercurrents by sending an email to undercurrents-request@undernet.org with just the word "subscribe" either in the subject or in the body of the message.

We do have a lot of wonderful articles, the committee has not been idle while waiting for the problems to be resolved.

Well, we all hope to be reading another issue soon.

This was 10 months ago.

There has not been an issue of the newsletter for over a year.

What happened to the "new start to our Newsletter Project!!!!" as Banjo put it?

One month ago xplorer said that the project is back, and he needed people to write articles, so i did write two articles, but still no response, when i asked they said that they are waiting for the administrator of the databases, since then they are still waiting.
I'm curious what will happen.

Puck I think you know that all things on Undernet take a little time, and patience. Just keep writing and I'm sure eventually another issue of the newsletter will happen. :D

Well over a year without any announcement on the status of this project other than how all things on Undernet take a little time. Any word yet?

Well, I couldn't ignore it. Below are excerpts from the newsletter and my comments in (parenthesis) as BBCode seems to be turned off for me in this section

The best flood protection you can get.

By MartYani


First of all, those are some protections for preventing ctcp or message flood
Enter them in your Scripts Editor. (ALT+R) Enter them into the Remote tab

--flood protections--
on ^+1:open:?:*:{ hinc -mu3 prvflood opened | if ($hget(prvflood,opened) > 1) { silence +*!*@*.*,+~*!*@undernet.org,+~*!*@*.undernet.org | .timeropenflood 1 30 silence -*!*@*.*,-~*!*@undernet.org,-~*!*@*.undernet.org | echo -a * Flood - SILENCE is ON Check flood.txt from your mIRC directory | write flood.txt $date $+ / $+ $time - $fulladdress $1- | halt } }
ctcp *:*:if (%¢) inc -u10 %¢ | else set -u10 %¢ 1 | if (%¢ > 4) { echo -a warning CTCP LAME flooders | silence +*!*@*.*,+~*!*@undernet.org,+~*!*@*.undernet.org | unset %¢ | .timer 1 180 silence -*!*@*.*,-~*!*@undernet.org,-~*!*@*.undernet.org | write msg.txt $date $+ / $+ $time - CTCP FLOOD: $fulladdress $1- }

It\\\\\\\'s better than nothing. Trust me, it will work just only the drones are not logged in. Simple as pie, you\\\\\\\'re not logged in, you cannot message me! Isn\\\\\\\'t this nice? :o)

After you get flooded, your drones are logged into a file called flood.txt and you can find it in your mIRC directory, that\\\\\\\'s for reporting the drones to the abuse-exploits@undernet.org or for the #report-abuse channel.

That\\\\\\\'s all for now, I\\\\\\\'ll post new articles in a short time. Enjoy Undernet

(Umm. There might still be a person or two on Undernet that use Linux (or any *nix), Mac, a webchat interface, or any of the myriad of Windows IRC clients OTHER than mIRC. You might want to state somewhere in the article this is meant ONLY for users of mIRC.)

Spaghetti Alla Carbonara (Spaghetti a la carbonara would be the correct spelling)

By Kanne


Spaghetti Alla Carbonara. (Spaghetti a la carbonara would be the correct spelling)

Ingredients:

1/4 lbs Bacon (smoked) (Where I come from bacon is sold by the (full) pound. And should be eaten that way!)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 egg yolks (whipped)
1/2c Fresh Parmisan cheese (grated) (Should be spelled Parmesan.)
Piece of Garlic(optional)
Salt
Pepper
Spaghetti

Fry the bacon in the olive oil, with the garlic, until the bacon is well cooked but not burnt.
Beat the eggs with the Parmisan cheese.
Cook the Spaghetti in boiling water, stirring occasionally so it wont stick.
When \'aldente\', salt them then strain. (al dente is two words.)
Put them back into the pot and add the bacon over a low flame then the eggs.
Stir until cooked.
Add pepper and serve warm.

Enjoy! (I can't! Not enough bacon!!)

Valentine Day (Valentine's Day)

By Carlos


Valentine's Day is a traditional celebration in which friends, lovers, boyfriends or husbands express love or affection to each other. Held on the February 14, Valentine onomastic. In some countries is called the Day of Love and Other Day of Love and Friendship.

It is now celebrated by exchange of notes of love known as valentines, with symbols such as the heart or Cupid, but with the popularity of the Internet is now also used to exchange cards.

Modern Valentine's Day was imported to the U.S. in the nineteenth century by the British. The first produced valentines postcards dating from 1847, created by American businessman and artist Esther Howland (1828-1904).

Now for some excerpts from this topic on the forum:

--------------------

Now the conclusion.

So, the committee had a lot of wonderful articles ready a year and a half ago but the above is what was chosen to put in print at this time? Let me guess, someone gave the go-ahead for this last night so a mad scramble ensued to get something out and no one even bothered to look back through older submissions?

I really don't mean to trash the effort, but this absolutely screams amateur hour. And I'm not even referring to the problems you've seemed to have encounted with escaping characters in PHP (see Editor's Note and possibly Futuristic Fun in the newsletter.)

MrEen

P.S. As my previous post may show, the quoting function on this forum seems to be broken. It might only be this section though, as this seems the only section where BBCode is off for me.
