rec.games.roguelike.development looking glass

As of March 31 2008, my ISP's USENET feed provider ceased to exist (buyout by another company). Since that date, I no longer have any access to the USENET. Therefore, I am forced to discontinue r.g.r.a frontend on Angband.oook.cz website.

Thanks Jason, I already forwarded this message to DarkGod, the current
wiki admin.

Account creation was disabled to prevent the spambot attacks, which
were becoming more and more frequent and the recent changes patrol was
not being enough, this is a temporary measure and I hope darkgod can
implement spambot protection like the one you talk about.

In the meantime you can send me an email to java.koder@gmail.com with
your info and I can create an account
