History

In the early nineties security was hardly a part of a sceners routines unlike nowadays. With sitenames, group IRC channels and lists of members being openly distributed in nfo’s those days were clearly different. Some people ran private websites to communicate and store this information which later resulted in the opening of the big three public sites still known today:

www.orm.nu -> www.isonews.com/www.theisonews.com
www.nforce.nl/www.nfohump.com
www.vcdq.com

*www.orm.nu was started by members of ORIGIN/DEViANCE as stated in one of their NFO’s:

“Check out the ISO scene’s BEST news page at WWW.ORM.NU Team DVNiSO”

PRE Databases

For those of you who aren’t familiar with IRC (which is a real shame) and those who are looking for an easy GUI there are several webbased PRE databases:

Corrupt-Net NFO: Yes, M3U/SFV: Yes, Advanced search: Yes
Doopes NFO: No, M3U/SFV: NO Advanced search: Yes
Layer13 NFO: Yes, M3U/SFV: NO Advanced search: No
ORLYDB NFO: No, M3U/SFV: NO Advanced search: No

History

Since pre sources are becoming more and more public it was a small step to design a frontend for the SQL databases bots use to store their info. Since the distribution of NFO, SFV and M3U files was picked up by about every prenet the availability has vastly increased.
