Birdy1 would need to send a PM to RCK as he is the only person who can do this

Edit: just took a look and there is already another member called Birdy so this will not be possible...

lol - yeah - i do remember the spat about unity. And i know that the Unity idea was instigated in all good faith. Trouble was, cos you had 99.9% of the scene under 18 years old at the time, if there was a cause to start a flame war, then we (all of us) would, always take up the mantle and revel at the chance of a "ruck" (was it just us lot in the UK or were the guys in Denmark (Danish Gold anyone?) or Germany the same? - lol . I remember being mega pissed off that we werent invited in, but that was those days and like Mungo says, the smallest things mattered to us then - reputation was everything. In fact Ipec always fell under the shadow of its founder members, (Finnish and Swedish as i recall? - correct me if im wrong) - we were all budding coders / gfx artists / musicians who had been fortunate enough (via Tigger) to take on the great name. We tried to live up to it , and to i certain degree, in my opinion at least, did do. I absolutely lived for Ipec in those days. It sounds quite daft now, but ipec was everything to me / us. The whole scene thing was (and still is i have no doubt) unique and something i will always hold dear to my heart. Was an honour and a pleasure to be a part of, and it was always based on friendship (even if we did fall out from time to time) - i remember writing three page letters to my contacts (Mungo / Majic - sorry if i bored you - he he) - not cos i had to , but because i wanted to. Superb days that i will never ever forget

No worries, I always liked long letters

The UK wasn't unique in having scene wars: Angels vs Paradox, Quartex vs Paranoimia (Pretty global one if I recall), Zelnik vs just about everyone.... Far too many to accurately remember.

Yep, the scene was pretty good fun. The phone bills on the other hand...
