[ Community -> Article ] - News related to Top Story: Duck and Cover's 10th Anniversary

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.

Some random insignificant event.

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?

http://www.petitiononline.com/fo2src/petition.html

-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.

Dac's new logo

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.

It's ten years since we broke away from Gamespy. Interplay bitched them out when Killzig revealed Black Isle's development of "Fallout Fantasy" which turned out to be Lionheart.

We're officially older than the mental age of the average fallout 3 fan. I'm proud.

Hard to believe it's been almost 4 years since Bethesda fucked us in the ass.

Fallout 4 will be made mostly of concentrated super AIDS. One teaspoon of super AIDS in your butt and you're dead within a year.

10 years ago DAC moved to duckandcover.net, don't remember when we switched to .cx (it was because someone forgot to pay the bills IIRC)

The founder of Duck and Cover was someone called Jay. I believe Kreegle ran/owned DAC when it moved from GameSpy to duckandcover.net?

SoulFish was just some server tech dude I think

That'd be cool to have on DaC permanently, even if some of it seems shaky. For instance, Koc told me 3rd of Jan, not 13th; or about Kreegle being the boss in 03 when when this forum went up the boss apparent was Killzig.

Edit- Also, who the hell is editing the page? I could have sworn that

Killzig had an incredibly stupid idea of giving admin powers to Megatron and Spazmo

was originally "a Kubric sort of idea" or something. Maybe I was high when I woke up, fuck knows. icon_drunk

Gimpmask is right. We moved to .cx when the site went dark for like a summer and then Darkunderlord took over or something. We refer to the time as the Dark Summer.

JimmyJay86 didn't really do much during the summer we were out besides I think just get the forums up but not the whole site. He blamed it on not having the passwords required. Saint Proverbius came in and brought DU then Teatime to take over.

That wiki that gimpmask posted actually seems fairly accurate. I guess Ausir wrote it?

This is all cool how we have our 10th anniversary (even if it's not) around the same time that Wasteland 2 got funded.

Killzig was definitely an admin back then already and taking care of a lot of Dack stuff, but I'm pretty sure Kreegle owned the domain, paid for the hosting etc. It's been ages though so I could be wrong

I changed it to say Kubrick today, it seems someone changed it back already icon_sad

I think when Teatime and I took over, we were still at thevats.net. Then it was decided by someone to get the .cx domain in memory of the goatse escapade. I think that was late 2003, maybe 2004?

That wiki article forgets to mention our glorious victory in DU's war of terror.
