"Coming in under the radar of ordinary society. An unholy alliance of the tech world, and the world of organized dissent."
Billy Idol

Who are the BitFellas?

We're a bunch of folks who enjoy technology because it's fun, entertaining and allows us to create all sorts of neat things.

Sometimes those things have uses.

Sometimes they don't.

We're the folks who saw magic in the machines. We each have our favorites, and that says something about who we are - but we also have come to appreciate other's favorites too. We don't care what the platform is, as long as someone's enjoying using it.

We're the folks who kept the first machine we got, and still use it.
We're the guys who get offered an old computer in someone's loft and are genuinely excited about the possibilities that still exist in that "old, useless" stuff.

We're the folks who look at the new technology and say "hey, cool, can it do this?" and when it says no, we teach it how.

We're folks who like making noise. Sometimes we make noise with colors. We like sharing noise. We make friends by sharing noise. We make friends by turning off the noise and showing off the silence.

Who are the BitFellas?
...We're the toys that you forgot under the bed, who keep the monsters away.


Welcome to the BitFellas universe. The site is primarily for the demoscene. One of our main goals is to preserve the 'scene' past of all platforms, too.

The BitFellas are providing the demoscene with a community portal and content database for almost all platforms, combined with a nice steadily moderated forum to exchange the latest gossip and information. We don't intend to compete with other resources. We prefer to provide additional content and information.

BF has been developed by a dedicated team of demoscene enthusiasts to provide an outstanding experience. Most of us have been involved in scene related operations and activities for very long time.

Some of our members released their first scene productions as early as 1982!
They became fascinated from the technology before the term "demoscene" existed back in a time when green and amber glows of text-based computer terminals lighted rooms. Remember the days when you where obsessed with Pac-Man or Space Invaders? :)

So why do i want to join in with BitFellas?

It's pretty obvious, because it's fun!

We will be covering the following scene related topics:
Demos, Scene events, Multimedia, Graphics, Music and Mags.


Acorn, All Console Platforms, Amiga, Apple, Archemedes, Atari, C116, C16, C64, CPC, Mac, MSX, Oric, PC, Plus4, Ti, VIC20, ZX Speccy and any other wacky machine that takes our fancy!

If your favourite platform has not been listed yet and we find enough interested people we will happily open a sub for you guys!

Site creation is fully under way. It will steadily progress allowing us to create special sections for your needs. Discuss >any< ideas you have for improvement -we really love ideas!- at our BitFellas Talk / Feedback area.

We are a growing community here at BitFellas and in time a more diverse array of platforms will be catered for will enrich our forums and users minds :) Good things often don't "just happen" but must be worked at to reach the desired goal.

We are sharing this vision with all our scene spirited friends.

BitFellas... Remix the scene!

ALiEN posted this on #bitfellas this evening:


"Sehr geehrte Kunden,
gemeinsam mit Avaya haben wir den Grund für den ploetzlichen Stromausfall einiger Systeme vor knapp zwei Wochen finden koennen und fuehren daher in der Nacht vom 11.08.2006 auf 12.08.2006 dringende Wartungsarbeiten an der Stromversorgung durch.
Es wird in der Zeit von ca. 03.00 bis 05.00 Uhr zu einem Abschalten der Stromzuführung von rund 1000 Servern kommen.
Wir versuchen aber die Ausfaelle so kurz wie moeglich zu halten.
Wir bitten fuer diese Massnahmen um Ihr Verstaendnis - sie soll dazu beitragen, die Stabilitaet des Stromnetztes zu gewaerhrleisten"

Basically it says something like "maintenance tonight to fix some problems with the power failures"

Site looks really nice. But the login doesn't really work with Opera 9 here :-/ It keeps reloading the site all the time. Have to use FireFox for it which I don't really like. Would be nice if that could be fixed to work with Opera.
added on the 2006-08-12 19:36:37 by jua jua
The stats suggest that it works with Opera 9.

nice moderated forum
added on the 2006-08-13 14:25:04 by xeNusion xeNusion
At least one Admin is using Opera 9 to do all work, and it has been tested in Opera, Firefox, and even AmiWeb. I think you're getting your password wrong (:
2micronuke: you need try to logout from other browsers, and then login from Opera. Site engine may don't allow logged in user from several browsers at once.

Skrebbel: You don't have "elite access" it seems :)

Skrebbel: Right now, it's MAINLY a forum, yes. However the various historical, tutorial, referential, ...

The 'library' section isn't up yet.

There's also a bit more of a push to be universal, non-platform-specific, and provide a spot for folks to 'preview' works and get feedback.

So while it's mainly a forum right now, we've got 6 months of work that has been put in it to get it to this point, and much of that was devoted to things OTHER than the forum.
