Revision as of 06:16, 21 October 2011
(note: this article has been cut down upon Kangaroo's insistence, for some reason; you can easily find older versions, however)
Kangaroo MusiQue, aka Thorsten Norman Mitschele, was a CPC-scene member.
Kangaroo was also the man who hosted CPCWiki on a company server almost from its beginning, as he did with other CPC-related projects (like cpc-forum.de). At some point, Kangaroo claimed that the hosting of CPCWiki cost him in excess of €3000/yr (!!), and even managed to get a donation from Prodatron to the tune of €1000.
However, in a controversial move and without any prior warning, during the summer of 2009 he announced that we would be withdrawing support from the CPC projects he was hosting. This left the CPCWiki homeless. What's more, Kangaroo took down cpc-forum.de, a very lively German forum, saying he also deleted the underlying database.
After the general outcry Kangaroo offered to host CPCWiki at a cost of €120 per month. This was imposible to fund (and other hosts offered much cheaper solutions for dedicated servers), so Kangaroo was asked to sell the domain (cpcwiki.com) so that we could move the wiki to another host.
This Kangaroo declined to do for personal reasons. What's more, he forwarded all relevant domains first to his personal blog and, subsequently, to gay-related websites.
This forced us to register cpcwiki.eu and transfer the database there. After the fact Kangaroo belatedly offered to host CPCWiki, along with other sites, on a shared server. Of course it was too late, to say nothing of running the risk of hosting the project with someone who might take it down again at his whim.
