Latest Additions

Commander Spleen asked for a program to create Keenish sounds for his secret project in January 2004. "Operation: Coffee Break" was eventually released as Watch314 MkII, a fangame.
From Levellass's collection comes a neat sprite sheet created by Slasher. Furthermore, a section for Jacob Pease has been added with two cool pictures of Keen in very different styles. The earlier one was sent by Levellass, too.

In January 2003, Hirogen2 released an SGA console font for Linux. Only two days later, Zorath posted his DOS SGA font in the same thread.
You can now view the coloured version of Sciz CT's cool picture "Lazy Day". Another file Levellass sent me. Also, I added the four most recent episodes of Mort's wonderful comic strip.

All of the four threads added today include fanfiction from mid-2001. Three of them can also be found on the fanfiction page of CC314, namely A Delirious End to the Beginning by Neil McRae and KeenEmpire's stories The Essence of Thought (without epilogue) and End of Curses (first part). I guess it doesn't hurt to have the pages where the works first appeared, too.
But there is also a story posted by KeenEmpire in July 2001 that didn't find its way to CC314 for some reason, The Last Fall: Events leading up to the War of the Universes. It's about Vorticons with the mission to resettle an abandoned planet, and the search for the reason why the earlier empire collapsed millennia ago. A well-known villain interferes, and it's up to our heroes to help. I hope this is okay for KeenEmpire, I don't know how to reach them.
Two more images from Levellass's collection, this time by aintnofuntime (allstories): an unfinished 3D Mort and a cute TUIT drawing. Also, the latest amazing set of Keen Awards trophies by Lava89 has been added.

Past Updates

ezboard (April 2000 October/November 2007)
The direct predecessor of the present-day PCKF was part of the ezboard network. In May 2005, ezboard was hacked and thousands of PCKF threads were deleted  the reason why this archive was created in the first place. Many threads had already disappeared before due to ezboard's 500-topic limit for each (sub)forum. In late 2007, the community moved to a phpBB-based forum.

Jazz Mega Message Board (November 1999 March/April 2000)
For some months, Keeners were active in a subforum of Jazz2City's JMMB.

InsideTheWeb (1997 November 1999/March 2001)
It started with a fansite and message board run by Geoff Sims. Over time, various other Keen fans also opened their own Keen boards on InsideTheWeb, a service that existed until March 2001. The community moved on in late 1999, but there was still some activity until the site's closure.
