And thus, Duckandcover.cx was born. Founding father Killzig (not the original Dacker**, that honor befell Soulfish) dixit, ten (!) years ago today, on the very first DaC** thread, hopelessly out-armstronging Neil Armstrong.
Wish you'd thought of that, eh, twat?
The thread in question, a 422-page behemoth with posts spanning 6 years, started with a question:
Have you signed this yet?
-dub Killzig, inciting stone-age dackers to join the quest for free Fallout 2 source code. Well, have you? 10 years later, 2003 (!) people have, making it the most remarkable evidence of how online petitions work.
So stick around, pallies, DaC** is 10 and we have cake*. And forever remember the immortal words of wisdom of our own Killzigathustra:
ASSIMILATE. ASSIMILATE. ASSIMILATE.
I'm moving to have this be our new logo.
*no we don't
**Update: According to new info hot from the frontlines, I am the actual twat Duck and Cover's REAL birthday is January 3, 1998, so he/she/it is actually 14 and a bit. Today's date merely marks the move to our current .CX address and the start of these here forums. Don't worry though, this still calls for celebration. Also, apologies to the 2 middle-aged chinese women-spambots who read the piece before the edit for any confusion.
