I wanted to take a minute to dedicate this release to the life of a young BBSer and aspiring programmer, Jadzia Marie Renaud. Just 14 years old when she passed in June of this year, she was an avid player of TradeWars 2002 and modeled for the female Synchronet avatars created and shared on DOVE-Net by her father, Josh, Kirkman of Blocktronics and breakintochat.com.
As a father of 3 daughters myself, it hurts to imagine the deep loss that Jadzia's family must feel. Although she had Marfan Syndrome, there was no indication that she would not live a long life and her death was a shock. And though I did not know her personally, I know that I am ... we are like her and share her passion for this medium and the connections we make here. The future of BBSing will be darker without her presence.
Thanks to those who contributed content and testing... echicken, Deuce, mcmlxxix, Nelgin, Mark Lewis, Cyan, art, altere, WitNik, and those that I'm forgetting but submitted valuable bug and test reports, or just comedy relief!
