on the matter of old private messages, i've temporarily opened the old JakChat
server so you can retrieve any messages you still want. address of the old server is www.okusi.net/cgi/ultimatebb.cgi
please note that this server will only be kept open for a week; after that, i'll be deleting everything on it for good.
in regard to private messages, some have recently asked me "can you (meaning me) read our private messages?" the answer is yes, i can, if i was so inclined, could be bothered, had the time, etc.
international spy rings should thus avoid using JakChat
for relaying their secret coded messages.
