This was just a hint of its growth to come. MUNDANE was created to move all "chat"; that is personal discussions, and other occylt that were of a non-pagan or magickal nature. These three were bundled as the "Magicknet Trio". If a BBS carried one, they had to carry all three.
At its height, there were over 50 "official" echoes that were considered part of the PODSNet backbone, with several others available. Like many open source and standards-based technology projects, FidoNet grew rapidly, and then forked.
The addition of Zones to the Fidonet technology allowed for easier routing of internationally, and the creation of networks outside of the control of International Fido Net Association IFNA. It asked for the zone of 93, as the other popular occult oriented zone occlt, 5 and 23 see Discordianism were already reserved.
See 93 Thelema for more information about why 93 was chosen. As PodsNet users came from various religious paths, from Asatru to Zen Buddhist, and their contributions as well as topical messages were compiled two to three times a year during the life of PODSNet.
