Happy Birthday DuckandCover:
It’s been a long long time since Duck and Cover was created by some random guy called Jay who everyone still existing on the site probably never knew. It’s been ten years in fact, to the day. It’s been a rocky ride, from the GSA debacle to that whole fist.jpg shenanigan and beyond.
Regardless, ten years is a long time for a website, let alone a website to still get updated and having a community, perhaps proof that when the bombs eventually drop cockroaches won’t be the only thing able to survive a bit of fallout (oh the wit).
Through that time the Fallout community as a whole has managed to survive the brutalization of the beloved game that once, and for some still does, had people glued to their computers, playing a quality of video game that tends to rarely be achieved these days. Again, a testament to the quality of the actual game, and how it’s built a lasting community around it.
Thanks to everyone who has ever had a hand in the running and maintaining the Duck and Cover site, and the current crew of staffers that continue to make sure when we come here we don’t get mail order porn. Despite how much zig probably still plans on doing it some day… Also, no site like this would’ve been around if it wasn’t for the community underneath it.
I remember when DAC was an ugly message boars with ads that took over half of the screen, then the Gamespy years, the Kreegle and Killian years, you name it. So all the best to them, and remember to duck and cover.
