August 13th 2008
10 years ago the zor.org domain was registered
The Crack News you're reading now started about
two years before that, but with no record of the actual date we can
maybe use August 13th 1998 as the official start up. And that
means the zor community has been going for ten years solid.
The oldest page I have is from
July 26th 1998 -
check it out to see the sort of world we lived in then!
Thanks to Hayn for digging that one up.....
The crack sites to your right have been amended
to list some of the great names and groups over the years. I
know there are many sites that could be there, but those listed were
selected on the basis of all having been on the news page for extended
periods of time - most are from around 1999.
links remain active here as a reminder of the golden days. If
you're keen to do some more reminiscing, click on any active link and
see where it takes you.
And of course the zor.org redirector is still available, and the
firstname.lastname@example.org email address
is still ticking along. But most importantly, the Discussion
Board is as active now as it has ever been. Click on the link
above and check it out if you haven't been there. The 10th
anniversary celebration saw many people, including some great names of
the past post their reminisces and recollections of the past ten
Congratz and all the best !!!!
most fascinating fact for me were the daily news and the Top 10 list
of good workin' groups. That was like a daily newspaper and just
great. It wasnt just some news board, it was a real community with irc
channel, great gfx artists and a lot of fun
Happy 10th year Zor. I wish you all the best from your friend Alpha1
to Zor - 10 years is amazing
Bubba Zenetti: I think the first time I ever
heard about Zor's was back in the #1 Texas Crack Site days when the
only way to access a lot of the top crack sites was through Zor's.
Talked to Coke for the first time in awhile a week ago, nice to catch
up with him. Remember ThndrKiss and S2K? Haven't heard from him in
Best wishes for another 10 years
Fisben: Lets not
forget peeps/groups like Mysfyt, ringer, Pvtctzn, TKC for the early
tuts serials 99 crew, the oscar team, hambo, Keygen Studio, Zutphen,
Sir Greg, Leonardos World, The Egoiste, Nitallica, F.O.S.I, COR, Cosmo
Conner, yoshi, flying raichu, SirDream, Butterflylady, raye, and may
others that have slipped away over the years
Wow, has it been that long? Happy anniversary!
Been around since the crack
news page days, bout 1997 I guess
Ten years already? Where have they gone...
Seeing the names of all
the fine folks mentioned brings back all the good times
Well happy Birthday Zor. Damm it's great to see all the
old nicks all in one place again. And its great to remember some of
the members that are no longer with us. Damm I remember tracking
Antizor across the net for hours/days on end what a asshole.
ZOR & BAMAFATS legends in there
Thanks for the kind words guys. As
we head towards the next 10 year anniversary, just a few people I'd
like to thank personally for their contribution. First up the
three people who were exceptional in the early days,
Bamafats and Netking. Expecially worth remembering
since I'm not sure if either of the first two are still with us.....
And others that come to mind - sorry to
those I miss - who did the hard work to keep the newspage or
discussion board a vibrant and fun place include:
hacker, Dark Gypsy, Naq, Bubba Zenetti, Crack King, Gogol, Raye,
Cyclops, villan, alfa, Shad, Ringer, Scarecrow, Mysfyt, Russ97,
he was a real person!) and
Finally, a special thanks to the people
that made it all work, the crackers. I don't like to single
people out, but do want to to pass on my personal thanks to some
Doit4Kicks, Raybiez, Krobar,
Flying Raichu, Mr White, Alpha1, Sir Dream and Potsmoke.
I'm still as much in awe of your work today as I was back in 1998.
