* 101 NOTES: *
* Happy New Year! It's been a pretty good year for the EchoList. I hope we *
* can come up with some ideas to improve the coverage of the EchoList and *
* make it easier for you to update. I'm workin'on it. *
* *
* This edition has VERY large number of conferences that were added/updated *
* back in June and are now marked for deletion next month. I'd hate to see *
* that many conferences dropped if the echos are really still active. Check *
* out the list and contact the moderator if you see conferences that have *
* 'aged-off' that should still be listed. *
* *
* Hoping you the best of the new year. *

Amiga Sysop's Discussion/ADS Echo AMIGA_SYSOP
The International Amiga Sysop Echoconference was founded to be a
hotline and clearing house for Bulletin Board Operators who support
the Amiga Computer. Here you may inquire about the existance (and
nearest location) of Amiga-related EchoConferences. Looking for a
specific file (and issuing warnings about those containing viri,
trojans, and/or commercial software), compatability problems between

modems and mailers, user/file validation techniques, problem users,
and last but not least, how to keep your sanity while doing all of the
above will be considered valid discussion techniques. In addition,
this echo is to serve as the 'general chatter' communications device
for all nodes connected to the Amiga_Software Distribution System
(ADS). This echo is for SYSOP's ONLY, and is NOT to be available in
any way, shape, or form to the general userbase.

InterNational Teenagers' EchoConference (INTEC) TEEN
The latest in 'Minors' related conferences, which has participants
both nationally and internationally. This echo is devoted to teens,
for teens, and by teens. Most general topics, pen-pal'ish messages
where the participants have FUN with others their own age group. This
echo was created so as to give teens the feeling that they're not
alone, and there's others like them in the world (as well as give them
another hobby ;). ALL systems with teenagers (I accept ages
13-20something) are welcome to the echo.

Issues Concerning Gays and Lesbians ICGAL
Discussions about real-world issues facing homosexuals. Talk is
intentionally less "chatty" than other homosexual related conferences,
typically is not sexually explicit. It is intended both for honest
discussion and as a support group, where resources, advice, and ideas
can be shared. Conference is INTENDED to be open to the public on
systems that carry it, but may, of course, be placed in a private
area.

JOBS-NOW JOBS-NOW
JOBS-NOW if for the posting of job offerings by individuals or
companies with positions to offer. Job offers may be made by any
company with a job opening, or by a professional recruiting company
which has been hired to fill the opening. Professional recruiters,
however, should be sensitive to the feelings of net users and adhere
to the guidelines for posting. JOBS-NOW is not a discussion group or
a group for posting resumes. It is acceptable to repost offerings
from other areas or to post offerings "second hand" if they are
verifiable and bonafide. Multi-Level Marketing, "Pyramid" schemes,
and any "job" that requires an up-front investment are not allowed.

Macintosh Entertainment & Education Echo MAC_GAMES
Since the release of the Macintosh, Apple has sought to establish it
as a business machine, going out of its way to describe its Apple II
line as the education/entertainment machine. This echo is dedicated
to the transmission of information about the entertainment and
educational qualities of the Mac, information not readily found in IBM
type gaming magazines, and increasingly neglected by MacUser/MacWorld.
Welcome in this echo are: games reviews, information about new
releases and upgrades of entertainment/educational software, posts
about software for sale, and gaming strategies and hints. Lobbying

for your favorite games, and critical comparisons of software are
welcome, for example Wizardry vs Might & Magic, Typing Tutor vs Type!,
etc.

NATIONAL FLAME ECHO FLAME
A general "no-holds-barred" echo for heated discussion and debate
about almost anything you care to Flame about! The echo can get quite
nasty and "hot," but there is a general attempt by all participants to
argue/debate/bitch in an intelligent and lively way, without having to
regress into ad hominem assaults, personal attacks, and/or unnecessary
resort to exchanges of obscenities and insults. Doesn't always work
that way, but that's what we strive for!

information about "OtherNets". OtherNets are the multiple alternative
networks other than Fidonet. Many of us know of some, such as
Alternet, EggNet, SigNet and RBBS-NET. But did you know a network
exists for Star Trek fans? Or Macintosh sysops? How about a network
for those of the Christian faith? Have you heard of MetroNet? LCRNet?
Paranet? Candynet? Or the "69LIST"? If not, then OTHERNETS is the

Reproductive Rights (Choice) Issues REPRO_RIGHTS
The usual reproduction equation is: get married, get pregnant, give
birth, raise a child. Alter even one part of that equation, and most
of our society doesn't know how to deal with you. Chances are, our
government doesn't want to deal with your unique situation, either.
That doesn't make YOU crazy; it just means THEY don't understand. If
you're interested in altering that equation, or if you're interested
in legislation or bureaucracy that tries to make us conform our
reproductive lives to their standards, join us. This echo is intended
to be a support group and a clearinghouse for information that affects
our most personal family decisions. An open mind and a willingness to
tolerate others' choices is a prequisite for joining this conference.
Contact Donna at 114/113.11 to establish links; we hope to be on the
backbone before long.

Satellite Television Echo TVRO
The TVRO echo is the place to be for anyone interested in satellite
television. For the novice, we discuss the types of satellite
equipment available for the average homeowner, with advice from
satellite dealers nationwide. For the current dishowner, TVRO
explores the politics that has moved this infant industry since its
start in the early 1980's. From the influence of cable television on
dish owners to the issue of signal piracy, TVRO participants range
from cable company officials to TVRO activists trying to reregulate
the cable television industry which has been accused of keeping TVRO
from being a competitive threat. The 90's bring new topics to TVRO as
well, from the new Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) services to fiber
optic "Telco TV" and wireless cable.

SHAREWARE Software Products Discussion Forum SHAREWRE
This echo is for use by those who are interested in discussing the
various software programs which are distributed as shareware as well
as the moral, ethical and philosophical issues surrounding shareware
and its distribution. "Shareware" is copyrighted software which is
distributed by authors through bulletin boards, on-line services, disk
vendors, and copies passed among friends. It is commercial software
which you are allowed to try out before you pay for it. This
conference also includes discussions about public domain, or PD
software. "Public domain" has a very specific legal meaning. It means
that the creator of a work (in this case, a piece of software) who had
legal ownership of that work, has given up ownership and dedicated the
work "to the public domain". Once something is in the public domain,
anyone can use it in any way they choose, and the author has no
control over the use and cannot demand payment for it. The echo is
carried internationally and users of the echo are scattered throughout
the world. As such, and since international calling is so expensive,
off-topic message restrictions are strictly enforced. Members of the
conference include many individuals who are very experienced in the
use of shareare, including those who have written a variety of
shareware utilities and programs. New members and novice users are
welcome and encouraged to share their experiences, opinions and
questions.

Stephen King Discussion S_KING
This echo is devoted to the works of the author, Stephen King. King
is noted as the best modern day author of horror/science fiction, has
sold millions of books world-wide, and has had many of his works
adapted into movies and audio tapes. This echo provides a forum where
fans, critics, and the casual reader can discuss his works. Ranging
from novels, short stories, new works expected, movies, trivia, etc,
the echo can get very lively. Join us in casting THE STAND, in
discussing charactor and locale, and in shooting trivia questions at
each other. Opinions are welcome, as is the pooling of information on
King, and where to find those "hard to find" writings. Though
comparisons to other authors of the same genre is irrepressable, we do
try to stay on topic!

Strange Newspaper clippings STRANGE
This area is for full quotes of items from respectable newspapers. My
personal favorites are those articles found in the lower left- hand
corner of the second section of the Wall Street Journal, but - each to
his own taste. The entries should contain messages of NO importance
whatsoever. Each message should contain both the name of the
newspaper, the agency or byline, and the date of the article. Mind
you, I want only reputable sources. Enquirer, Star, etc. are not
reputable sources. This conference is available in both EchoMail and
GroupMail formats, "gated" between EchoMail and GroupMail by

The Realm: A Play-By-Echomail Role-playing Game THEREALM
There is a genre of science fiction called "after things fell apart",
that is where The Realm fits in. Not long ago, during the Age of
Technology, something (it is unclear exactly what) happened to the
world. In the devastation that followed, most technology was lost,
and magic returned. All of the children of magic: elves, dwarves,
halflings, unicorns, etc., also returned, and so did the gods. In a
world where the gods walk the land almost anything can happen, and
usually does. Some of the old technology still remains and is
sometimes found. In the place of cities and countries, many
city-states arose in the new Age of Magic. After a time of settling
where war was common, an equilibrium was reached, and now it is rather
rare. There are now many wondrous cities: Ar, the largest of them
all, Cos, Ar's bitter enemy, Trantor, home to the wondrous Library,
and Port Kar, a city of thieves and pirates, to name but a few. Also,
a caste system has become dominant. When you are born into a caste
you typically stay there for life. Among the low castes are the
Peasants, Metal workers, and Leather Workers. Among the high castes
are the Warriors, Clerics, and Mages. Sometimes it is possible to
rise above your caste, but it is rare. Magic is very difficult to
perform in this Age. Only certain people have the Gift. Even with
the Gift, usually a talisman of some type is necessary to focus the
magic, and many people have died on quests for just such a talisman.
If you are interested in participating in The Realm, please send a
netmail to Adam Lesh on 1:269/102 or logon locally by calling Dragon's
Cave BBS (201)228-4708.

Urantia Book Discussions (religious; nonsectarian) LIGHTLIFE
Readers of The Urantia Book and other students of the teachings of
Jesus. This conference is nonsectarian; it is not necessary to be
Christian, or a member of any organized religion...an open mind and a
tolerant-of-other-beliefs attitude is all that is necessary. This
Desc is especially for those who have been "turned off" to
religion by the actions and often inconsistant teachings of organized
religions. Moderator Lon Stockton, 1:142/723 [WARNING - DUE TO UPDATE

WorldWide Opus Consortium Software Developers Forum WOC-AIDS
This echo is for use by those who are users of software which is used
with the Opus CBCS program (c) Wynn Wagner III. The echo is carried
internationally and users of the echo are scattered throughout the
world. As such, and since international calling is so expensive,
off-topic message restrictions are strictly enforced. Members of the
conference include many individuals who are very experienced in the
use of Opus, including those who have written a variety of Opus
related utilities, as well as past and present developers of Opus
itself. Code fragments are regularly entered and passed via the echo.
Several systems carrying the echo serve as repositories for the
messages / code fragments which are transmitted via the echo. New
members and novice users are welcome and encouraged to share their
experiences, opinions and questions.
