Echo Station: Exploring Star Wars Beyond The Daily News

FINALLY this hits news.com:

Greetings from Echo Station :-)

Sheesh...the amount of emails (and traffic) I'm getting about this are staggering.  Allow me 
to answer a few of the most frequent questions before you go emailing me, and then you 
can grab files to your heart's content:

  • I, personally, am not a lawyer.
  • I, personally, have absolutely no affiliation with eFront.com whatsoever.
  • I, personally, have never even had a site affiliated, sponsored by, or in any way 
    connected with eFront.com
  • I, personally, have no affiliation or connection with fuckedcompany.com.
  • I am not Pud.
  • I am not Kebie.
  • I am, in fact, nobody.  These aren't the droids you're looking for.  Move along.
  • I have no affiliation whatsoever with Kebie.com
  • I'm just a guy with a couple of servers that was willing to host these files.
  • Yes, IGN (or Snowball) does run ads on this site.  The money from the ads (and yes, they
    actually DO pay <g>) lets this site cover it's own costs, and helps out when I want to do 
    things like host files such as the ones below that are going to suck up tons of bandwidth. :-)
  • No, they don't own the domain.  I do.
  • I, personally, cannot guarantee or swear to the authenticity of these files.  The only 
    thing that I can tell you is that they have not, in any way, shape, or form, been edited
    by me or anyone else to my knowledge from their original content as posted to the 
    internet initially by parties other than myself.
  • I do not know who grabbed these files.
  • I do not know how they got these files.
  • I do not know any of the involved parties on a personal basis whatsoever.  Point of fact,
    I'd never even HEARD of any of these people (though I did know about eFront and some
    of the sites mentioned throughout the logs) other than knowing that "lowtax" ran the
    site "somethingawful.com", which was under the eFront umbrella, because I've been
    to that site before.
  • Why did I put these files on my servers?  Because, if they are what the appear to be 
    (and based on the legalese letters flowing about them, they appear to be), then I'm
    concerned that people acted in the criminal manner which these logs describe.  You
    may, for all intents and purposes, just consider me a concerned citizen.
  • Take these files at face value, and assign to them whatever reality YOU assign to them, 
    based on all of the information available.  For my two cents, based on the reactions coming
    from eFront (letter 1, letter 2), they're 100% real, but again, that's MY opinion, and you 
    should always do your own thinking.

The story is OBVIOUSLY of interest.  Allow me to share our traffic spike over the past few days
by comparing our traffic one week ago with what it's been like since I posted this silly page:

Unique Users Bandwidth
Average Day, 3/5 & 3/6 15,669/day Roughly 1.9 GB/day
Average, 3/12 & 3/13 89,434/day Roughly 11.5 GB/day

BWAHAHAHahahahahah...from www.dotcomscoop.com on 3/13/01:

"Beleaguered content network eFront has been under much scrutiny since ICQ chat logs
between the companies CEO and CTO were released on the Internet. Most webmasters
have not been paid for over five months.

Dotcom Scoop has just found out that eFront has been unable to make payments on their
office space and has been evicted today."

That all being said, the eFront files that you're looking for are here:
