MOODS -- The Metaphysical Distribution System
The Metaphysical and Occult Oriented Distribution System (MOODS)
is an automated two way file echo which is dedicated to the
distribution and exchange of metaphysical and occult text files.
MOODS runs with TICK software on Fidonet systems.
The TICK software makes it possible to swap files between
boards, complete with the file description. Incoming files
are directed to your designated directories by the software.
We currently have a single file echo area --
MOODS -- The 'main' file echo, consisting of recent metaphysical
and occult articles.
Other file echos may be added in the future.
You are responsible for the files you get from MOODS. If you
don't like 'em, delete 'em. If you place files on MOODS, please
try to conform to standard ASCII text file format. Files may
optionally be compressed in any of the widely used formats
(ZIP, ARC, LZH, ARJ, or ZOO).
MOODS operates independently of Podnet or other nets.
MOODS Sysops are encouraged to join the PAGAN MEGALIST, soon
to get underway. This will be a master list of the metaphysical
and occult files of participating bbs's. Check with 102/943
Unless other arrangements are made, you should poll 1:102/943
at least once a week for your MOODS file exchange. You may poll
any time. (The software at Mysteria will refuse file requests
during Zone Mail Hour in conformity with Fidonet rules.)
We operate under TICK vers. 1.30 or later. You must install
the software on your system and be a Fidonet or Podnet Sysop
with a valid node number. (Mysteria does not support other
Mysteria runs RAID, which is a TICK area maintenace utility
similar to areafix. You will be able to turn MOODS file
areas on and off with messages to RAID. (New applicants
request a RAID password.) For information on RAID operation,
freq RAID.USE from 102/943. Your local Fidonet hub may also
have it. Also available, a preprocessor for HATCH (freq
SCRATCH3.ZIP), which will automatically enable TICK transfers
of all new uploads with description (by scanning your Files.Bbs).
Archives of old MOODS releases are file requestable from
Mysteria. Currently available volumes are MOODS001.ZIP
through MOODS.011.ZIP. Each volume is roughly 200k.
Other occult files are also freqable from Mysteria. Use
the magic word FILES for the latest file list.
How to Apply to MOODS
Application is by Netmail sent to 1:102/943 if you wish to poll

is linked to MOODS.
If you request your feed from me, please suggest a RAID password
