Welcome! We are glad to see you in our collaborative zine. The project
was started back in November of 2007 with the aim to release one joint
magazine together with DoomRiderz, later RRLF joined us too, however
before the release they decided to abandon the project, because of
As you know, the situation in which currently the virus-writing is, is
not the best one, consequently, the same situation was in DoomRiderz
and RRLF groups, hence why we decided to incorporate. Our main goal
was to release zine with good content from whole community by
collaborating between each other, whether we have reached it or not, it
is up to you. Quality is what a good zine should contain, quantity is
what a whole community should care about.
It is sad, that there are very less people, who cares about the future
of virus-writing, who cannot sleep well, because of a feeling to be
necessary, to be an inventor... It is sad, that there are a lot of
do-nothing people, virus-writing is not "scene", spectators are
Some of you may wonder, why the groups actually exists. What the sense
to form the group, if it will die sooner or later. What is the group
purpose? Being a group member and releasing your projects under one
label? That is one of the main reasons of groups existence. The group
without members is just a name. Being a group member means: help the
group, help each other, working on projects together. Usually in zines
we can see more stuff from contributors, than from members.
EOF-Project isn't a group, it's a place for virus-writing, which doing
various projects and one of the projects is our zine. We are always
looking for people, who could help from both sides, coding and/or
Now imagine our group a bit expanded, breaking the group boundaries. We
could do the same: working on projects together, help the community,
help each other or even more.
Virus-writing is not genre, it's kind of a hobby, so why to split into
smaller parts and then slowly and painfully die? Let's be together.
I personally would like to thank everyone who had put efforts in
creation of zine. Additionally I would like to thank RadiatioN for the
great viewer he did for us.
See you soon, in next release! Until then, we hope you will enjoy

I am very happy to see this great project going on. As we know the
scene is not passing good times but this must not make us feel
defeated. We do vxing for fun and for the same scope we will go on
without caring of who says that the scene is dying ...
About myself, I have to admit with much sadness that the group to which
I belong to, DoomRiderz, is dead. The reasons are simple to understand.
After the release of this zine I will re-join EOF (that has been the
first group that accepted me) and so my group can be considered
disbanded. It's better to have one active group than many idle groups.
Good reading :)

Last December I wrote on RRLF homepage "...we are joining up with EOF
and DoomRiderz to release one big zine. I'm curious how this thing will
develop and I'm sure it's gonna be great...". We made plans about how
and what and when. We had a specific picture of this infamous upcoming
"virus scene zine" in our heads. But now, short before the release, if
we compare our thoughts from half a year ago with what it actually is
now, things turn out to be completely different, unexpected, unhoped.
Lots of things happened over the last half year, changing personal
lifes, opinions, goals, feelings, insights, self-concepts. You can see
the result of all this in this zine. Or better: you can not see it,
cause it's none that can be printed here. In the end, some good things
better stay lonely.
