DOSee pronounced dos/see is our emulator used to run MS-DOS based software in your web browser.

MS-DOS (Microsoft DOS) was the main operating system used by PCs during the 1980s to the early 1990s and is the precursor to Microsoft's Windows.


DOSee is a slimmed downed, partly modified port of The Emularity.

The Emularity is a multi-platform JavaScript emulator that supports the running of software for legacy computer platforms in a web browser that's used on the Internet Archive.

EM-DOSBox is a high-performance JavaScript port of DOSBox that is used by The Emularity for its emulation of the MS-DOS platform.

DOSBox is the most popular MS-DOS emulator in use today and is frequently used by commercial game publishers to run games from their back-catalogues on modern computers.


DOSee version 1.1, built on The Emularity, EM-DOSBox and DOSBox. Capture screenshot and save function built on canvas-toBlob.js.

 ║      Okay, I am writing this to bring out the truth about some shit I did  ║
 ║  like 5 months ago.  Brutus and I were running Legacy around January or    ║
 ║  February.  Entropy set us up with a guy named Waverider who said he had   ║
 ║  the game of the year and all the usual bull shit.  No problem.  He tells  ║
 ║  us he has the full Alpha version of the game and wants us to release it.  ║
 ║  Soo, we decided not to release the source and have a programmer work on   ║
 ║  it and make patches for things like modem play.  All was fine, Waverider  ║
 ║  promised no one else would get the source code, and everyone was happy;   ║
 ║  except Waverider. He couldn't understand that because he could supply     ║
 ║  only one release, he wasn't a full member.  That was just the Legacy      ║
 ║  policy at the time.  He was only supposed to get credit for that release  ║
 ║  and any patches that might proceed it, and this was worked out with him   ║
 ║  and Stormside (I think) from Motiv8.  M8 wanted to courier it.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So 2 days after we release this game, ROR releases the source code    ║
 ║  to it.  Kind of amazing seeing as no one was supposed to have it.  TKLP   ║
 ║  did some nice ass kissing (that is of course the job of every group       ║
 ║  leader) and got it.  I went to the Motiv8 leaders and talked to them      ║
 ║  about kicking him from M8 or punishing him in some way for breaking his   ║
 ║  word to another group, and M8's word along with it.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I tried for 2 days to get something done, they kept saying they       ║
 ║  would take some sort of disciplinary measure, but nothing was happening.  ║
 ║  As a result of this, I e-mailed the company that programmed this.  All I  ║
 ║  gave them was Waverider's IRC handle.  The next thing I knew, they were   ║
 ║  raiding his house.  Yes, I am a dick, but I thought it was funny.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      A few days later I got attacked by a ton of people that know nothing  ║
 ║  of what they were talking about.  It died a bit after that, but           ║
 ║  Waverider, in court, narqed saying that TKLP was the releaser of the      ║
 ║  source.  This is confirmed in Issue #16 of RCN by TKLP himself in an      ║
 ║  interview.                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now, 4 months later, I have assholes that think they know something   ║
 ║  starting shit, I have a lamer sending out fake logs saying all kinds of   ║
 ║  shit that was never said, and another magazine printed distorted facts.   ║
 ║  By the way, I like the other magazines, just one of their head people is  ║
 ║  jealous of RCN or something and wants to start shit.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So this is the story of what REALLY happened.  I have no reason to    ║
 ║  lie, this shit is old news, but some people have a hard time letting go   ║
 ║  of the past.  In short, we made a deal, he fucked me, I tried to resolve  ║
 ║  it on IRC with his leaders, they stalled, I took care of it.  It's a      ║
 ║  very simple thing, the scene has its limits, and those boundaries should  ║
 ║  not be crossed. I had a reason behind my telling Wave not to release the  ║
 ║  source.  I am a responsible person and I knew we would only release a     ║
 ║  compiled version, but they didn't think that way.  Releasing the source   ║
 ║  code of an ALPHA version of a program is like saying a fat "FUCK YOU" to  ║
 ║  the company, as this was uncopyrighted material.  Any Joe Blow could      ║
 ║  have taken that and copyrighted it.  It is one thing to release pirated   ║
 ║  software.  The company can write that off as a loss.  It's another        ║
 ║  thing, however, to release material that that company has spent           ║
 ║  countless hours on and ruin it all for them.                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Oh, and in closing, if anyone thinks they can narq on me, I keep NO   ║
 ║  WAREZ at my house or on my system, I don't card, and I don't phreak.  So  ║
 ║  have fun trying! :-)                                                      ║

 ║      This is Defender Zeta of Rapier, Logistix, Alliance, and Mortality    ║
 ║  writing to let you know that I am retiring.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Im quitting the scene as of now.  As I've gone from a lamer with no   ║
 ║  clue to a lamer with a clue I've come to the decision that the scene has  ║
 ║  become a waste of time.  I have put in 7-10 hours a day after school for  ║
 ║  about 17 months now.  I'm totally burned out, my girlfriend dumped me     ║
 ║  <the bitch ;) >, and it seems that most of my friends are in the scene.   ║
 ║  I'm quitting becuase the scene isn't what i thought it would be.          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      It's been fun and quite educational <I have no clue how to use half   ║
 ║  the illegal crap ive learned off other people online>.  The scene         ║
 ║  interferes with jobs, lifes, famlies, and is generally a waste of time.   ║
 ║  I thought it over.   If my biggest thrill is to get #1 on a board or a    ║
 ║  site i need a fucking life.  I've stayed awake for days at a time to      ║
 ║  increase my place in the scene.  I have made friends and enemies.  It's   ║
 ║  been an interesting experience.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I started out as a lamer with a 14.4 and no clue and now I'm leaving  ║
 ║  as a lamer with a 14.4 and no life.  The scene is addictive as hell.      ║
 ║  Don't even bother to deny it.  Almost every trader I know has said at     ║
 ║  some point or another 'I'm quitting..  this shit is messing up my life'.  ║
 ║  Most come back in a month or so...  I should know...  I've quit 5 times   ║
 ║  now..  and each time something happens to drag me back.  I'd like to      ║
 ║  take this occasion to tell lesser traders that as you get farther into    ║
 ║  the scene you will be dragged into alot of political crap.  It's          ║
 ║  annoying and it will take up about 80% of your time.  Finding out who's   ║
 ║  the shit and who's not takes up about 60% of your trading time and iRC    ║
 ║  itself take about 80% of your time.  I would encourage traders who are    ║
 ║  on the local scale and who havent gotten into the group scene yet to      ║
 ║  quit while your ahead..  just stay in #Exceed and rape the DCC lamers..   ║
 ║  its almost the best way to do it and stay independent.  I'd encourage     ║
 ║  most of the traders out there to quit now. The Feds will find a legal     ║
 ║  loop hole in our legal system that will allow them to trace you and       ║
 ║  arrest you.                                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Currently, the scene in the USA exists on its scale because the law   ║
 ║  cannot touch us.  We are invincible.  We are in vast numbers and our      ║
 ║  legions grow daily.  On the flip side we are ultra competitive, quite     ║
 ║  often have misplaced priorities which are focused on the scene.  The      ║
 ║  scene is a colossial waste of time.  In all my moving about gigs of crap  ║
 ║  I have only downloaded and unzipped about 12 games.  The scene is full    ║
 ║  of crap that no one bothers to leech and unzip.  It gets expensive after  ║
 ║  a while.  The scene starts out fun by pretending we are the best board    ║
 ║  traders on earth.  It ends with us being the best board and site traders  ║
 ║  on earth but with no life.  Fan Fan la Tulipe said it best when he said   ║
 ║  the entire scene was a dream and a fantasy.  It's based on the idea that  ║
 ║  one day you will become ELiTE enuff to have your name be known forever    ║
 ║  in the scene.  This is crap, if a person quits the scene he is forgotten  ║
 ║  in maybe 6 months to a year tops if he was a super trader.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Look at Captain Blood <not the CD Rom one..  the trader one>, he was  ║
 ║  the shit.  He was a major member of Razor, DOD, and a ton of other        ║
 ║  groups.  In one day (ONE) he was kicked off every major board and site    ║
 ║  and he was the object of ridicule and jokes.  Don't imagine that the      ║
 ║  scene itself gives a fuck about you.  You will make friends and they      ║
 ║  will miss you but they will make new friends and forget about you when    ║
 ║  your a hasbin.  The scene is impersonal and it doesnt care about you.     ║
 ║  Your friends will miss you but like I said..  in time they will forget    ║
 ║  about you.  My advice is to chill and get a girlfriend <or in             ║
 ║  winterhawks case a diet and boyfriend>.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      I am not new to the scene, I have been around for quite a while now.  ║
 ║  My IRC nick is DarK-Elf.  I saw RCN-16.ZIP and said to myself "Cool, let  ║
 ║  me go take a look at this."  I downloaded it and as soon as I went into   ║
 ║  RCN-16.EXE, I thought it was awesome.  The sound, coding, everything was  ║
 ║  the best that I have ever seen.  After reading the entire magazine I      ║
 ║  then went and downloaded all the past issues of the RCN magazine.  RCN    ║
 ║  is a really good magazine and I think that you guys are getting bigger    ║
 ║  and more popular.  On Sundays, people in almost every channel are         ║
 ║  talking about RCN's.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now as for warez groups and the scene.  I wish people would just      ║
 ║  stop arguing and grow up a little.  People who do nothing for the scene   ║
 ║  except leech and stay in their group's channel.  Those people should be   ║
 ║  banned from every warez channel on IRC.  I think if every member in       ║
 ║  every group worked then the scene would be a whole lot better.            ║
 ║  Unfortunately, the majority of the scene is made up of leeches and        ║
 ║  idling people.  I think if people concencentrated on one group instead    ║
 ║  of joining 1 thousand groups and doing nothing, this place could be a     ║
 ║  better one.  People should stick to one group and focus on it.   I        ║
 ║  started by focusing on a group called AOD and look at me now, I'm a       ║
 ║  senior of a great group that I like a lot.                                ║

 ║      Thanks for the great compliments!  As far as groups go, you're quite  ║
 ║  right, and I think you bring up a good point.  AOD isn't the most k-rad   ║
 ║  10x #1 group, but it's a group, and if you enjoy being in it, that's all  ║
 ║  that matters.  AOD, by your writing, doesn't sound like a group that      ║
 ║  ever has to worry about egos.  Good job guys!                             ║

 ║      After reading your Issue #16, I decided to throw in my 2 cents on an  ║
 ║  issue that has been bothering me.  First of all, the issue of trading     ║
 ║  and talent.  Please let it be known that it takes NO talent whatsoever    ║
 ║  to be a courier.  People base respect and popularity on "talent."  It     ║
 ║  takes absolutely no talent whatsoever to sit and type on a keyboard for   ║
 ║  a few hours and move files.  It does, however, take knowhow and contacts  ║
 ║  to get the job doe right.                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      People say that DCC couriers are lame and have no talent, but this    ║
 ║  is far from the truth.  The truth of the matter is that it takes no       ║
 ║  talent to do any bit of couriering or releasing.  If you think it does,   ║
 ║  then you're a fool. My little brother could do what any of you do, if I   ║
 ║  were to sit down and teach him how.  We all have special talent in        ║
 ║  certain areas of our life, but playing in the warez world is not one of   ║
 ║  them by any means.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      How fucking hard is it to sit there and DCC a file or download it     ║
 ║  off of a BBS and move it around?  Your average bum could do that, but     ║
 ║  yes, it does take time and contacts to be able to get that.  All that     ║
 ║  entails, however, is meeting the right people and moving the proper       ║
 ║  meggage.  Now most people will find this offensive but I don't give a     ║
 ║  shit.  The people in RiSC and Amnesia and Digital and fATE and all of     ║
 ║  them for that matter, the ones who people consider "gods of warez"        ║
 ║  really are no better than the guys in #warez5 or #lamewarez or whatever.  ║
 ║  They just have more time on their hands (which tells you what?  They      ║
 ║  have no outside life) because I can sit and move for hours and hours a    ║
 ║  day tons of megs of files and be considered a "talented kick-ass          ║
 ║  trader."  Meanwhile I have no real outside life, so that says in real     ║
 ║  life most of these so called "warez gods" are probably a bunch of         ║
 ║  weirdos with no friends or no girlfriend or job.  They can just sit       ║
 ║  around forever and move files, something you people need to think about   ║
 ║  next time you go kissing ass with the top courier or next time you call   ║
 ║  your average Joe Blow a lamer.  That lamer probably has a job and a       ║
 ║  girlfriend and friends and something real to do with his time!            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now on to the next issue.  The word "lame" or "lamer."  I am so sick  ║
 ║  to death of this word.  It is so overused and over-rated.  When you deam  ║
 ║  someone lame you are deaming yourself better than them.  Again, that      ║
 ║  says in the scene that in order for you to deam someone lame, that you    ║
 ║  must be better than them.  How?  Well, by moving more files or releasing  ║
 ║  more stuff or sucking dick with bigger people (status-wise), but when     ║
 ║  you step back and come to reality, that lamer probably has a life and     ║
 ║  does more with his time than type on a keyboard, so now in retrospect     ║
 ║  who is lame?  The guy going to a bar with his friends or getting laid on  ║
 ║  Saturday night, or the guy who sits at home in front of his PC typing     ║
 ║  "mput *.zip" (wow, that takes LOTS of talent!).  None of you are better   ║
 ║  than anybody else.  None of you have any talent when it comes to warez,   ║
 ║  because it takes no talent.  So next time you go to call someone lame     ║
 ║  think about yourself and why you are doing that, but most of the people   ║
 ║  who do that are so wrapped up in the scene that they don't know the       ║
 ║  difference between reality and the scene, and THAT, my friend, is lame!   ║

 ║  Dear RCN,                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I've often tried to describe to my friends who are not educated in    ║
 ║  the ways of the elite just how the scene operates.  The best analogy I    ║
 ║  could ever come up with is one of a pyramid.  The best (and the few at    ║
 ║  the top), the semi-talented (a medium amount of these) in the middle,     ║
 ║  and the unskilled at the bottom (thousands of these).  The hardcore       ║
 ║  traders and top sites are probably at the top, mediocre groups in the     ║
 ║  middle, and DCC couriers/Anon Sites/#WarezX channels at the bottom.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Knowing this, we can accurately decide the DCC courier's place.       ║
 ║  When used in moderation, DCC-ing can be an effective and efficient way    ║
 ║  of moving files around.  Distributing group NFOs, applications, group     ║
 ║  taggers/dizzers.  DCC-ing is probably the best way to move some files to  ║
 ║  a large target audience.  FTP sites, however fast, can get bogged down    ║
 ║  with large amounts of people, but a DCC process can facilitate many       ║
 ║  people at the same time.                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The reason why DCC couriers are regarded as "The epitome of the lame  ║
 ║  Pericles" is probably because it doesn't take much talent to offer        ║
 ║  something and set the /ptime to 10 mins or so.  There is little or no     ║
 ║  competition, no one can really tell who is the fastest, and the demanded  ║
 ║  software can be days to weeks old.                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The reason people get into DCC trading can be anywhere from laziness  ║
 ║  to the "hands-on" feel of DCC couriering.  A friend of mine once told me  ║
 ║  that it was gratifying watching all the numbers to the processes go, and  ║
 ║  that when people would leech his files, they would thank him and it made  ║
 ║  the whole process worthwhile.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I can safely say that DCC couriering may be a fun and effective       ║
 ║  medium by which one can courier, if used in conjunction with FTP          ║
 ║  trading.  I myself have done both FTP and DCC couriering, and have mixed  ║
 ║  emotions of both worlds.  FTP is definitely more competitive, a lot of    ║
 ║  work, and at the same time very gratifying when you beat the shit out of  ║
 ║  someone.  DCC is something I don't think I'll ever do again, save         ║
 ║  offering the latest RCN when it comes out.  There is no more motivation   ║
 ║  for me to risk being caught by some FBI/Chris Carter person just to       ║
 ║  offer files to people I'll probably never know.                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I believe that if you're at the top, or near the top, your files      ║
 ║  will make it to almost all the DCC traders there are out there.           ║
 ║  Therefore, the pyramid shape leads me to believe, in order to             ║
 ║  effectively affect the most amount of people, you must climb higher on    ║
 ║  it.                                                                       ║

 ║      Ever since Dr. Jekyll and I have known each other, which was back in  ║
 ║  the HWC (HardWire Couriers) days, we have always stayed in contact.       ║
 ║  Most people will recognize him from #Oldwarez, and his FTP site,          ║
 ║  Stockade (an oldwarez site).                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      It has always been fun talking with him, he was always cool and       ║
 ║  giving.  If I ever needed anything, he would try his best to get it for   ║
 ║  me.  He always had enough time for everyone, and never blew people off.   ║
 ║  Dr. Jekyll was in many groups throughout his career, but gave up warez    ║
 ║  about a year ago.  He then came back and started Stockade, and his bots,  ║
 ║  which always offered the best old warez.  I would just like to give him   ║
 ║  my best wishes, in my opinion, he was the best courier I ever knew.       ║
 ║  Although I never knew that he hacked, it   didn't suprise me after I      ║
 ║  read the article since he knew almost everything about computers.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║       we do.  Take your time, and make sure you do it right.               ║

 ║      First, I'd just like to say I've enjoyed your e-mag thus far.  It     ║
 ║  makes for some interesting reading to hear the thoughts of other people   ║
 ║  in the scene that I wouldn't hear otherwise.                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In response to Tuxedo Mask's article on DVD-ROMs, I don't understand  ║
 ║  how he could conclude the advent of DVD technology could be good for the  ║
 ║  scene.  It's obvious that CD-ROM titles have hurt the warez scene.  More  ║
 ║  often than not, CD-RIPs don't work, aren't worth the time to download     ║
 ║  considering the enjoyment (for games) or usefulness (for utils)           ║
 ║  received, and have some critical feature of the program cut out for       ║
 ║  space reasons.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Not to mention the fact that some titles simply are not released      ║
 ║  because of their size.  The reason for all of this is clear.  Mass        ║
 ║  storage technologies are increasing at an exponential rate, while data    ║
 ║  transmission technologies are increasing only geometrically.  In the      ║
 ║  last couple of years, we have seen the common communications tool double  ║
 ║  in speed (the modem from 14.4kbps to 28.8kbps), but the average game has  ║
 ║  increased by 500 to 800 percent.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I don't know how closely Tuxedo Mask follows technicial matters, but  ║
 ║  he neglected to mention that DVD-ROM technology allows not only for       ║
 ║  double sided media, but also for double layered media.  This is           ║
 ║  accomplished by having two rows of pits at different depths and           ║
 ║  switching the focus of the laser.  Using these techniques, data           ║

 ║  them, but grow to the point where some (horridly bad) games ship on 10    ║
 ║  platters?                                                                 ║

 ║      Considering the damage that CD-ROMs have done thus far, and the       ║
 ║  plausible explosive popularity of the DVD-ROM format looming on the       ║
 ║  horizon (due in part because DVD-ROM will be introduced in parallel as    ║
 ║  the new video & audio storage standard), DVD-ROMs will most definitely    ║

 ║      Tuxedo Mask was merely stating two possibilities of how the DVD-ROM   ║
 ║  could effect the scene.  He didn't fail to mention how the DVD-ROM could  ║
 ║  be the next scene "killer" finishing off the job that the CD-ROM          ║
 ║  started, but he might have over emphasized on how the DVD-ROM could help  ║
 ║  regular pirates.  He mentioned that a tool such as the upcoming DVD-ROM,  ║
 ║  all of which are recordable, would be a great asset to anyone who wishes  ║
 ║  to start their own warez library of games.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      You mentioned that one DVD-ROM could potentially hold up to 17 gigs,  ║
 ║  however, that data is no longer up to date with the latest in news.  The  ║
 ║  latest estimates show that the original designers miscalculated the       ║
 ║  potentials of the DVD-ROM, and it seems more likely now, that the         ║
 ║  DVD-ROM will be only be one sided, due to production costs, and thus,     ║
 ║  will only be able to hold up approximately 4 gigs, and not 17 gigs.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Personally, I am more than excited to hear that DVD-ROM drives will   ║
 ║  be coming to home computers within the next year or two.  It could        ║
 ║  potentially kill the scene, but there are a million ways in which it      ║
 ║  could make things more convenient for life outside the scene.  For        ║
 ║  example, one will be able to put hours worth of quality music on just     ║
 ║  one DVD, and one will soon be able to purchase DVD movies (they'll be     ║
 ║  higher quality than current Laser-Discs, and cheaper too).  And if the    ║
 ║  cost of having these conveniences is the death of the scene, so be it.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      I've noticed recently that a bunch of groups bashing upon other       ║
 ║  groups by members of groups that are supposedly mature.  Now, I don't     ║
 ║  quite understand how those groups are mature if they don't have mature    ║
 ║  members.  I've also heard about people narqing each other in over one     ║
 ║  single release, over other such TRIVIAL matters as that.  I'd just like   ║
 ║  to emphasize that what we are doing in the scene is only for fun, as I'm  ║
 ║  sure thousands of people have already said before, and not to get         ║
 ║  people, not even your ENEMIES, into any trouble.  It's supposed to be     ║
 ║  friendly competition, what's wrong with that?                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      This also goes for people like Chris Carter, and I'm sure you're      ║
 ║  aware of his nice little reputation as a narq.  I also heard from a few   ║
 ║  people in Revolution X about Brawley being busted over some source code   ║
 ║  for some game or another, though I haven't seen any articles in any       ║
 ║  emags about it.  Why can't those people just calm down and wait a while   ║
 ║  so they can out do each other?                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      They would certainly get back at their opposition just as well if     ║
 ║  they made them look foolish or slow, in a friendly way, rather than       ║
 ║  putting them behind bars, in a very UNfriendly way.  Hell, you might as   ║
 ║  well just go over to the person's house and shoot them!  Their families   ║
 ║  wouldn't be hurt any more or less by that!  In fact, you wouldn't         ║
 ║  absolutely destroy their reputation if you went over and killed them,     ║
 ║  rather than turning them in.  Again, the scene is for fun, it's not as    ║
 ║  if we're getting a salary for releasing warez in an illegal manner or     ║
 ║  anything.  Why do people get so pissed off about a stupid file?  Now, if  ║
 ║  they killed one of your relatives, I can see a reason for turning them    ║
 ║  in, but only a file?!  Come on, people, get it together and make the      ║
 ║  scene more fun, instead of a constant battle to the death against your    ║
 ║  competition.                                                              ║

 ║      There are a lot of groups now a days.  I haven't been in the scene    ║
 ║  for that long, but I have heard stories about how it used to be.  I know  ║
 ║  that a long time ago, there weren't all these power trips going on        ║
 ║  within groups.  There was never any attempt at taking over a group (at    ║
 ║  least from what I've heard).                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I've been in the scene for a few years now, and what I see I don't    ║
 ║  really like.  I've been in a couple of groups.  I was in a local group,   ║
 ║  and I started as just a member (SysOp).  I moved up from being just a     ║
 ║  member to becoming the group's vice-president.  We were doing pretty      ║
 ║  good.  At first, we were kind of slow, but we moved up and had a few      ║
 ║  releases.  But then we were like any normal new group which didn't have   ║
 ║  many releases, and so we died.  It was a hard seven months, but we put    ║
 ║  every minute of our free time into the group.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The point I'm trying to make here is that, even though there are      ║
 ║  many groups in the scene which are supplying the warez, it doesn't mean   ║
 ║  they're all going to survive.  Even though they do die out, they still    ║
 ║  deserve some credit.  We put in hours and hours a day trying to make a    ║
 ║  small group a good one.  But we don't give credit where it is due.  We    ║
 ║  always end up bypassing a small group and going towards the bigger ones   ║
 ║  due to reputation.  It doesn't matter how long a group has been in the    ║
 ║  scene, or by how many releases they've had, but what does matter is how   ║
 ║  good their releases are.  The saying "Quality over Quantity" is taken     ║
 ║  for granted.  Many groups in the scene say that they release all quality  ║
 ║  warez.  How about the releases that are all a bunch of shit?  It's not    ║
 ║  how good a group does in releasing, it's how good their releases are,     ║
 ║  and on how much they try to make the scene better.                        ║

 ║  I disagree with your assumption of "how it used to be".  It's a general   ║
 ║  misconception that the scene of long past is somehow better than the one  ║
 ║  today.  Even back in the Commodore 64 days, there were groups, and they   ║
 ║  bickered and fought amongst themselves.  To ignore that fact and to say   ║
 ║  that it never happened is ludicrous.                                      ║

 ║      I also have some other advice for you, this might sound kind of       ║

 ║  Dear RCN,                                                                 ║

 ║      My handle is Pest and I am in Razor 1911 and a few other groups.  I   ║
 ║  was reading RCN #16 and was shocked at a few things.  First on Napalm's   ║
 ║  assertion that Napalm is the #2 release group in the scene!  This is      ║
 ║  absolutely STUPID.  Prophet rates the groups in this order (Prestige,     ║
 ║  Napalm, Hybrid, and Razor 1911).                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now granted Prestige did kick ass this month, Napalm is not even in   ║
 ║  the same ball park as a well established group like Razor 1911.  In fact  ║
 ║  Napalm Console had to merge into Sneakers in shame cuz they were getting  ║
 ║  their ass kicked, so Napalm decided to start its PC section.  And in the  ║
 ║  PC section they have been riddled with problems (I am sure you have all   ║
 ║  heard about them).                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      All Napalm can do is make store pick ups and get their Acclaim        ║
 ║  releases, that is it!  They have no diversity and no real talent!  Since  ║
 ║  January, they haven't beaten Razor 1911 or Hybrid in a single month.      ║
 ║  Look at this month, what did they release?  Chaos Overlords and Tony      ║
 ║  Larussa, that is it!  Ohhh yeah, their other releases Virtua Soccer was   ║
 ║  a DUPE and on Battle Arena : Toshinden, I think everyone knows that they  ║
 ║  stole the crack.  In fact in every warez rating this month they scored    ║
 ║  consistently lower than both Razor 1911 and Hybrid.  Napalm has lost all  ║
 ║  of its crackers to Prestige so in reality they are fucked!  We will see   ║
 ║  how Napalm is going to do in June.  They are already dead, just not       ║
 ║  buried!                                                                   ║

 ║  future.  All I can comment on is Napalm's current standing, and I would   ║
 ║  currently rate Prestige as #1, followed by Razor 1911, Napalm, and then   ║
 ║  Hybrid.  However, those are only my current feelings as to the groups'    ║

 ║      In your interview with Dr. Jekyl in RCN #15, he said that there       ║
 ║  weren't any games released in the last 2 years with any sense of          ║
 ║  gameplay.  How can this be true if you are a fan of Doom?  You had to     ║
 ║  admit Duke 3D was much better, faster, and more fun to play.  Also, if    ║
 ║  you played Earth Siege II, you would have to consider it a very good      ║
 ║  game as well.  Duke Nukem was only 11 disks and Earth Siege II was 20.    ║
 ║  Also, I have a 486 DX2/66 with 16 megs of RAM and both ran fine.          ║
 ║  Another game that came out more recently is Strife, and it's different    ║
 ║  from Doom, Duke Nukem, etc., because it has a big role playing element    ║

 ║      Duke 3D is indeed a much better version of Doom, and it's only 11     ║
 ║  disks, so I doubt that should be considered "large in size".  However, a  ║
 ║  game such as Earth Siege II that's 20 disks would probably be far too     ║
 ║  large for Dr. Jekyl's tastes.                                             ║

 ║      You know, since day one, there have been many many groups/BBS's and   ║
 ║  other piracy related groups that dupe shit or release fakes.  Yes,        ║
 ║  Daggerfall, was couriered by the courier group Oasis, and supposedly      ║
 ║  cracked by CES (what a stupid fuckup name) this past week.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Guess what?!  It was a fucking demo that was dated back in January    ║
 ║  of 1996.  I am not picking on the couriers that did this, (in this        ║
 ║  instance, it's Oasis) but I am flaming CES and all the fucking            ║
 ║  elite-wanna be idiots who dupe shit and stuff.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Aren't you pissed? I am, oh well.  Releasing groups should check out  ║
 ║  all their wares before they release it to the public.  Makes sense        ║
 ║  doesn't it?  Since I only usually download games and shit, I will only    ║
 ║  be talking about game releasing groups.  For instance, there were a few   ║
 ║  lame groups back a few months such as TiCK, NFS, and COPS.  These         ║
 ║  groups?  Pretty lame and pathetic.  Anyways, I congratulate Prestige,     ║
 ║  Razor, and Napalm for excellent fast speed quality warez.  The other      ║
 ║  groups like Release on Rampage and Hybrid, well, what can I say?  I       ║
 ║  haven't seen you guys release much as the other groups (sorry to          ║
 ║  say...we always need new games to keep ourselves busy).                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      On to the new subject!  NFS.. run by TQR (The Quiet Riot) has been    ║
 ║  dead for a short period of time (according to some people I talked to).   ║
 ║  GUESS WHAT!  TQR created a new group called STONED.  They asked me not    ║
 ║  to tell anyone about this new group, and I decided not to at the          ║
 ║  beginning, but after the way I was treated and the way they were          ║
 ║  organized, I couldn't help myself.  First off, I was invited to this      ║
 ║  "new" group by a few members of STONED.  They apparently liked my demo    ║
 ║  for SINFUL COURIERS so much that they had to invite me :).  Anyways,      ║
 ║  once I got there, I saw that the group so confused and so disorganized.   ║
 ║  Some people said they were suppliers, and some said they were couriers.   ║
 ║  Other people also yelled that they were the senior council and others     ║
 ║  were just members and vice-versa.  It was totally nuts.                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      TQR will bomb this STONED group too.  Like everyone says, "If you     ║
 ║  fail the first time, don't try again because you will bomb again just     ║
 ║  like the first time."  Guess TQR thinks he can do better.  Oh well.       ║
 ║  Good luck!                                                                ║

 ║      Give TQR a break, at least he's trying.  I remember when I was the    ║
 ║  President of FSW (Fucking Sweet Warez), a lame ass group that was almost  ║
 ║  as bad as NFS.  I killed FSW and then I started VND (Vendetta), which     ║
 ║  turned out to be another lame group, and then I started up LGC (Legacy),  ║
 ║  which turned out not to be as lame.  After all the trial and error,       ║
 ║  making and breaking groups, Hitex and I finally came up with RCN, and I   ║
 ║  believe that people in the scene decided to give us a chance and forgive  ║
 ║  us for all the stupid mistakes we made in the past and will make in the   ║
 ║  future.                                                                   ║

 ║      Even though TQR might be failing pathetically as you so blatantly     ║
 ║  put it, but at least he's trying to start somewhat of a decent            ║
 ║  organization.  I'd like to see you go out and make your own group, and    ║

 ║      Groups today seem to be getting an ever crappier and crappier         ║
 ║  attitude.  They get a few couriers and maybe a tiny bit of name           ║
 ║  recognition and suddenly they think they're really hot stuff and get      ║
 ║  major elitist attitudes.  I have a simple question for those faggots,     ║
 ║  who the heck do they think they're impressing?  In order to help out a    ║
 ║  few of these pathetic wannabes, I'm writing this neat little letter with  ║
 ║  a couple suggestions.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      First off, you might thinking - who the heck is this guy?!  Good      ║
 ║  question!  You've probably seen one of my bots at one time or another     ║
 ║  (XanthDCC), which I've been told are usually the top bots online          ║
 ║  whenever I put one up, mainly because they're packed with about 250 megs  ║
 ║  each and operate over a T3 and I actually know what I'm doing, unlike     ║
 ║  most people who type /plist.  Oh, there was this little thing I did for   ║
 ║  a while as head courier/coordinator for Impulse a while back, which was   ║
 ║  MindCrash, but then it merged into Digital Traders while I was gone and   ║
 ║  I quit, but that's a really long and boring story.                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Let's start with a few of my suggestions on channel modes.  My        ║
 ║  general feeling is that +i channels suck.  When I was doing anything      ║
 ║  with Impulse, I always tried to keep it -i, because without doing that,   ║
 ║  you don't see a lot of new faces.  AND, when it's +i, a day with          ║
 ║  netsplits or a broken bot can be terrible for your members.  A recent     ║
 ║  example of such would be how none of PTA (Power Trading Arsenal)          ║
 ║  couriers seem to be able to get into the channel because their bots       ║
 ║  suck.  Anyone with half a brain can tell that they DON'T want this to     ║
 ║  happen to them under *ANY* circumstances.  Keep your channel -i if        ║
 ║  you're a new group and rapidly expanding.  If you're an established       ║
 ║  group, keeping the channel that follows your group name (i.e. If your     ║
 ║  group is LEET COURIERS, the channel would be #LEET) -i is a good idea.    ║
 ║  Keeping a public relations person in the channel at all times is a        ║
 ║  definite plus.  Of course, a +i channel that only members know of and     ║
 ║  have access to would also be a great idea.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      With all the new groups popping up, undoubtedly, almost all of them   ║
 ║  lack some organization skills.  Weeeeeeeeee!  Use a spreadsheet or        ║
 ║  something like it to help organize things.  I learned this little tip     ║
 ║  from Headbanger, and it was a good idea, except for the fact that I       ║
 ║  didn't use Windows.  Having the sheet on the same computer you courier    ║
 ║  from is a good idea.  Multitasking is a MUST for any courier.  Organize   ║
 ║  this in whichever manner *YOU* feel most comfortable with, and you'll be  ║
 ║  able to remove bad or or idle members with relative ease.                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Having the *SECURE* email addresses of ALL members is also            ║
 ║  necessary.  Put them in your address book if the need arises.  If         ║
 ║  there's a handle and realname slot, put their position in the real name   ║
 ║  slot and handle in the handle slot.  This makes things a HECK of a lot    ║
 ║  easier for you.  Send out frequent mailers just to give some support,     ║
 ║  rules updates (read on for more on rules), or other important info (new   ║
 ║  FTP sites, couriers, bots, etc.)                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      This is something that a lot of people don't do, but I would like to  ║
 ║  see done a lot more, it's just something that bugs me to death.  Get a    ║
 ║  copy of phoenix and add your group name to the top.  It helps give your   ║
 ║  group a much more "polished" look.            Onto the subject of IRC     ║
 ║  Couriers, IRC is a great method to spread a lot of files to a lot of      ║
 ║  people really fast, albeit you usually can't move a whole lot.  First     ║
 ║  off, people always seem to be addicted to this great auto-plist feature.  ║
 ║  I personally think it's irritating as heck, and altogether useless.  If   ║
 ║  you have something good, load up TWO bots, one with it on and one with    ║
 ║  it off.  When you PLIST, your queue will jam up immediately, etc.  A few  ║
 ║  other notes, set your Auto-Ptime way high, to about 20 minutes or so.     ║
 ║  If you're offering a bunch of 10 meg files, plist'ing just to tell        ║
 ║  people all your slots are full and the queue is jammed up every 5         ║
 ║  minutes is stupid.  Also, make SURE you have a MINSPEED!  But, make sure  ║
 ║  that your provider can push your minspeed, if it's 3 and you can't get    ║
 ║  more than a 2.5 because there's no bandwidth, it does no one any good.    ║
 ║  Finally, set your queue down to about 5 if you're offering large files.   ║
 ║  A 2 hour wait in a queue of 10 or 20 just results in false queue's (a     ║
 ║  ghosted queue - offline people in your queue) and a lot of frustration.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      If you leave your bot up for a long time, XDCC SAVE and restart       ║
 ║  frequently, when IRC splits occur, phoenix screwes up and you'll get      ║
 ║  queues of like 11/5.  Yuck.  Make sure you detach your session!  (If you  ║
 ║  don't know how to do this - DON'T IRC OFFER).  IRC is extremely           ║
 ║  inefficient.  When the PCPU and JCPU times get up to like 8:12, and       ║
 ║  everyone else is at 57, your ISP administrator knows something is up.     ║
 ║  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, hit "w".  That shows the CPU  ║
 ║  percentage that you are taking up.  PCPU is present usage, and JCPU is    ║
 ║  peak usage.  IRC typically doesn't relinquish anything on the PCPU when   ║
 ║  you get it up there.  6 slots on a crappy machine with a T1 is enough to  ║
 ║  get this through the stratosphere.                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      FTP couriering is not nearly as conspicuous as IRC, because your CPU  ║
 ║  usage is much lower.  But, diskspace fluctuations are much greater, so    ║
 ║  hope that your provider has a fast SCSI disk. =)  I've erased and         ║
 ║  written in excess of a gig a day when I was still into couriering a lot,  ║
 ║  without blinking an eye.  First off, *ALWAYS* use NcFTP v2.3.0 (I think   ║
 ║  that's the most recent).  This version stores your logins and passwords,  ║
 ║  and has lots of nifty features.  If you *MUST* use FTP, NEVER EVER EVER   ║
 ║  do a "ftp my.site.name.here.com", you just showed everyone on your        ║
 ║  provider what the name of the FTP site you're going to is!  Duh!  With    ║
 ║  FTP, just make sure to dupe check well, and upload an NFO file.  That     ║
 ║  should be about it.  FTP is really quite simple from a technical          ║
 ║  standpoint, from the couriering standpoint, it's tough with fast FTP      ║
 ║  sites.                                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      This one is my favorite topic, and I'm hoping this inspires a few     ║
 ║  groups to do something!  Anonymous FTP.  While it's typically             ║
 ║  disregarded as being lame and crappy by a lot of groups, in reality that  ║
 ║  is totally wrong.  Since most couriers use hacked accounts, FTP site      ║
 ║  busts aren't really an immediated danger to you.  You don't compete on    ║
 ║  an anonymous FTP site!  It's easy, when you get a file, unzip it, grap a  ║
 ║  DIZ and NFO, login to the FTP site, and upload!  No competition, no       ║
 ║  "need for speed", just pure plain couriering fun.         Here's how you  ║
 ║  can create an anonymous FTP site.  First off, you must find a writable    ║
 ║  directory.  Something not found in the /incoming is preferable.  Now,     ║
 ║  make a directory.  Like, "mkdir tmp" or something.  Now, erase it         ║
 ║  ("rmdir tmp").  This is a test for mkdir and rmdir permissions.  Making   ║
 ║  a directory with a SPACE in it is always an EXCELLENT idea, to check      ║
 ║  filename acceptance.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      If you can remove the dir, continue on.  If you can't, find another   ║
 ║  FTP site.  That one is NO GOOD.  Now, remake the dir and upload a file.   ║
 ║  Check the speed you got, make sure it's high.  Erase the file, if you     ║
 ║  can't - forget about this FTP site.  If you can, download the file to be  ║
 ║  sure the FTP site allows downloads.  If all is good, upload 200 megs      ║
 ║  worth of GARBAGE, make sure *ALL* of it uploads, then erase it.  This     ║
 ║  sounds stupid, but it's a disk space check, and is essential.  If it      ║
 ║  fills the disk, forget that FTP site.  If it doesn't, you just found an   ║
 ║  anonymous FTP site!                                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Making directories is the fun part!  NEVER use the words "warez",     ║
 ║  "appz", "userz", "gamez", "sitez", or "talkz".  These are DEAD GIVEAWAYS  ║
 ║  to FTPSearch or Archie users.  Something like "gaming", and               ║
 ║  "applications" are best. "G_mez", "A_pz", etc. also work quite nicely.    ║
 ║  High ASCII root directories are great for security, but work poorly for   ║
 ║  many reasons.  A blank space directory is much preferable, or a           ║
 ║  "<TAB><space>" is nice.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Your FTP site is now ready!  Upload only good files, as this isn't a  ║
 ║  competitive thing.  Keep the disk usage to about 400 megs or less, and    ║
 ║  erase files frequently.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So you followed all my guidlines and still no one cares about your    ║
 ║  group?  Just keep at it, people will start to listen up soon.  Recruit    ║
 ║  new couriers and FTP site operators, people will trickle in.  Put         ║
 ║  applications in *ONE* slot at the end of a DCC offer list that's PACKED   ║
 ║  with fast good warez, and put them on your anonymous FTP site.  Make      ║
 ║  sure to have an auto-responder to your public channel.  Keep              ║
 ║  knowledgeable and helpful people on hand at all times to talk to people   ║
 ║  who are interested.  You could even recruit a few good couriers from      ║
 ║  other groups to help out.  If you can get someone in a more established   ║
 ║  group to put a few files on your FTP site, that will always help.  Hang   ║
 ║  out in as many release group channels as you can, and have members apply  ║
 ║  to release groups.  Having your members inside a release group equates    ║
 ║  to more tags for you and faster files.  But, above all, have fun.  Warez  ║
 ║  are not all your life, they're a hobby.  Have fun and best of luck!       ║

 ║          RCN is really a fucking cool e-mag and it was about time for      ║
 ║  someone to take care of the warez public.  In so much mess with moving    ║
 ║  files over the net or BBSs, some of us haven't gotten the time to ask     ║
 ║  people what is happening in the scene.  RCN informs us with a             ║
 ║  professional approach and cool texts, hot interviews, unlike ones that    ║
 ║  we've had to read in other e-mags.  Since RCN returned from its 3-month   ║
 ║  holiday, I can say that it is getting better by the week, collecting new  ║
 ║  writers.  From the first amateur number we now have a pro e-zine which    ║
 ║  rules over them all.  Also, I would like to congradulte the editors for   ║
 ║  putting texts with lots of humor in it, despite the fact that they have   ║
 ║  nothing to do with warez.  It shouldn't be just strictly a warez mag      ║
 ║  because that would be boring.  Reading a few last articles (Especially    ║
 ║  TKRP's love adventure, I laughed my ass off!) that are funny is good!     ║

 ║      Along with 50 other reasons for returning, a significant one was      ║
 ║  that we felt that the warez public was not being properly informed about  ║
 ║  the events that encircled it.  Other e-mags just weren't giving the       ║
 ║  scene all that it deserved.  However, like you said, having a little fun  ║
 ║  never hurts.  Once we feel that we have accomplished our task of          ║
 ║  informing the public about the events of the week in a more than          ║
 ║  adequate manner, we see nothing wrong with adding a little dash of humor  ║

 ║  Dear Overkill,                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      You don't want to get busted, small penalties or not.  It's just not  ║
 ║  a fun thing.  If you're over 18, generally you'll be fined off your ass   ║
 ║  and have all your equipment seized for good.  You might also have to      ║
 ║  spend some time in jail, not to mention your record will not be wiped.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Being that you're 16, I would say that you wouldn't be spending any   ║
 ║  time in jail, and if they did seize your equipment, it would probably     ║
 ║  only be temporary.   However, a common act that the FBI (or whoever it    ║
 ║  is that got you) will do is go to your school.  That's not fun.  I knew   ║
 ║  this one guy that got busted and the FBI ended up going to his school     ║
 ║  with him and made him give a speech to every class in the school stating  ║
 ║  what he did, why it was wrong, and why copyright infringement isn't       ║
 ║  cool.  Of course, if you don't want to do that, you could always just     ║
 ║  pay them a few thousand dollars.  Take your pick.  Not to mention, your   ║
 ║  parents will probably have your head on a stick within a matter of        ║
 ║  minutes.                                                                  ║

 ║      Ultimately, you don't want to get busted.  But you're in the scene    ║
 ║  and not only that, you have a BBS.  You need to take responsibility for   ║
 ║  yourself and know that there is always a chance that you will get         ║
 ║  busted.  By keeping your BBS up, you are accepting that fact and          ║
 ║  accepting the fact that you could get busted at any time.  You should     ║
 ║  know that laws are different depending on the state in which you are in.  ║
 ║  To find out more, you could call your city hall and find out about their  ║
 ║  policies.  You could also GOPHER into the LIBRARY OF CONGRESS on the      ║

 ║      Just wanted to drop a line letting you know how much I dig the zine.  ║
 ║  Great shit.  I would also like to respond to a letter in RCN #16 by a     ║
 ║  guy named Demaxxus.  He was the guy who didn't like some of the           ║
 ║  lame-assed ops in some of the '#warez' channels.  Id' just like to take   ║
 ║  this chance to agree with him.  First of all, I am an op in a few         ║
 ║  channels (namely #warez, etc.) and have been on IRC for far too many      ║
 ║  years.  When I first logged on to IRC, I found two warez channels :       ║
 ║  #warez and #warez2.  I quickly learned that most of the guys around were  ║
 ║  cool and this 'new found' warez tool was invaluable to everyone.  When a  ║
 ║  ware was released, it was quickly put up for XDCC and was quickly spread  ║
 ║  by everyone.  Now, with the growth that the Internet has seen in the      ║
 ║  past year, it is easy to see why he is experiencing these problems; a     ║
 ║  million people on IRC.  When he asks 'WHAT THE FUCK ARE THEY FOR?'        ║
 ║  Well, I can answer this : To allow little 15-year old fuck heads to       ║
 ║  think they're big shit.  That's it.  With the exception of the first      ║
 ║  #warez channels, this is what it's always been for.  This was way before  ║
 ║  my time.  Now, not even #warez has warez.  We talk about OJ's genital     ║
 ║  warts and stuff.  Maybe that's what they're for.  Well, I know I'm        ║
 ║  rambling and shit.  I just want to let Demaxxus know that there are a     ║
 ║  few of us remaining that don't care about who you are, just that you      ║
 ║  want to keep the scene alive.  Thanks for the ranting space, and once     ║
 ║  again, keep up the good work, guys.                                       ║

 ║  last week.  I won't name anything else because I don't want to effect     ║

 ║  to do, stuff to read, being he hasn't much else to do now that his        ║

 ║  RCN : The general consensus of the scene toward Napalm is that it is no   ║
 ║        longer doing as well as it did in the past.  One can even go so     ║
 ║        far as to say that Napalm is dead because it is no longer           ║
 ║        releasing on a regular basis.  Do you believe that Napalm is dead,  ║
 ║        or is dying?                                                        ║

 ║  NPM : No, that is absolutely not true.  As you can see, besides           ║
 ║        Prestige, every other games group in the scene is also suffering    ║
 ║        from a release slump.  Prestige is the games releasing force at     ║
 ║        the moment, but I think Napalm will be able to take some quality    ║
 ║        releases from Prestige here and there.                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Less than 2 weeks ago, both Napalm and Prestige released Battle     ║
 ║        Arena : Toshinden, but both groups happened to release an           ║
 ║        identical crack.  Not only has Prestige accused Napalm of stealing  ║
 ║        the crack for Battle Arena : Toshinden, Prestige has backed it      ║
 ║        with evidence (RCN #16).  I want to see *YOU*, the leader of        ║
 ║        Napalm, explain why the cracks for Battle Arena : Toshinden from    ║
 ║        both groups are exactly the identical, even down to the time        ║
 ║        stamps.  Did Napalm steal the Prestige crack, or did it not?        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  NPM : Well, I really can't answer question.  It's not that I don't want   ║
 ║        to answer the question, but I really don't know the whole story.    ║
 ║        I have been taking it easy as of late and I only know as much as    ║
 ║        the average person.                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : There are a few indicators and pointers here and there that inform  ║
 ║        the leader that their group is not doing too well.  For release     ║
 ║        groups, one can say that a group is doing horribly if it doesn't    ║
 ║        release in a long period of time.  Napalm hasn't released in        ║
 ║        almost 3 weeks, and I consider that a long period of time.  Also,   ║
 ║        when members of a group flood out to join other groups, I too       ║
 ║        consider that to be a bad sign.  Many of Napalm's crackers have     ║
 ║        left Napalm to join Prestige, one such cracker is Lost Soul.  How   ║
 ║        has his absence and the absence of other former Napalm members      ║
 ║        effected the group as a whole?                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  NPM : Loyalty.  If there is no loyalty in a group, then the group can     ║
 ║        never do well.  When Napalm was doing well, everyone was asking to  ║
 ║        join, but once Prestige started releasing, everyone wanted to be a  ║
 ║        Prestige member.  I feel that flooding back and forth between       ║
 ║        groups is extremely lame.  Napalm still has many loyal members,     ║
 ║        and I thank those who are loyal for sticking with the group         ║
 ║        through the tough times.  Napalm may no longer be the #1 games      ║
 ║        group, but we surely do like to think of ourselves as the #2 games  ║
 ║        group.  As for the fact that Napalm has not released yet, people    ║
 ║        need not worry, the releases will be coming shortly.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : In last week's interview with Shatter Star, I asked him why Napalm  ║
 ║        was not releasing, and he said that it was not releasing because    ║
 ║        Napalm was apparently testing the "LOYALTY" of the members.  When   ║
 ║        he said that, I assumed that Shatter Star was taking the role of a  ║
 ║        loyal Napalm member, but not even a week has passed, and he's       ║
 ║        already ditched Napalm for Prestige.  It seems to me that he no     ║
 ║        longer believes that Napalm is refusing to release because it       ║
 ║        wishes to test its members.  What are your feelings on his          ║
 ║        resignation, and what are your feelings toward him?  Has his        ║
 ║        resignation effected the standing of the group?                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  NPM : Like I said, people tend to hop from one group to another because   ║
 ║        they want to be in group that is releasing a lot.  What can I say?  ║
 ║        Napalm is not doing well at the moment, so all the unloyal members  ║
 ║        jump ship.  You can't put a choke on them, it's their decision to   ║
 ║        do whatever they want.  Personally, this is just more about having  ║
 ║        fun then anything else.  Why should I get stressed out over these   ║
 ║        things?                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : There is a parallel between the old Napalm Consoles and the         ║
 ║        current Napalm PC, both groups were at one point in time, a very    ║
 ║        strong releasing force, but both started to release less as time    ║
 ║        passed.  When Napalm Consoles could no longer release, you merged   ║
 ║        Napalm Consoles into another consoles group called Sneakers, and    ║
 ║        then you headed off to try your luck at running a successful games  ║
 ║        group on another platform, the PC, and thus Napalm PC was created.  ║
 ║        Now that Napalm PC is close to dying, will you merge it into        ║
 ║        Prestige, and then perhaps move on to releasing games on another    ║
 ║        platform?  You should try your luck starting Napalm MAC, there's a  ║
 ║        lot less competition in releasing Macintosh games...                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  NPM : Hehe, that is kind of funny to hear.  Napalm Consoles wasn't even   ║
 ║        close to dying when I merged it into Sneakers.  The reason why I    ║
 ║        merged Napalm Consoles into Sneakers was because the other Napalm   ║
 ║        leaders and I were too busy to run things, so I decided to merge    ║
 ║        Napalm into a consoles group that was no longer releasing as well   ║
 ║        as it used to, but still had a good reputation.  I really hope      ║
 ║        that Napalm PC will not need to merge into another games group.     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Well, you were looking for a consoles group that was slowing down,  ║
 ║        but had a good reputation?  Razor 1911 is a perfect counterpart to  ║
 ║        Sneakers.  Razor 1911 is a games group that is slowing down, but    ║
 ║        they have a great reputation, is Napalm considering a merge with    ║
 ║        Razor 1911, or is a merge out of question?                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  NPM : Napalm Consoles didn't have a problem with merging into Sneakers    ║
 ║        because most members of both groups were good friends.  I highly    ║
 ║        doubt that Napalm PC will merge into Razor 1911, there isn't much   ║
 ║        love between the two groups.  But then again, you never know, who   ║
 ║        would have ever thought Nexus would merge into Razor 1911, or that  ║
 ║        Dynamix would merge into Prestige?                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : How does Napalm get most of their releases?  I've heard rumors      ║
 ║        that Napalm is a group that specializes in getting releases         ║
 ║        through store pick ups.  Suppliers who do store pick ups can be     ║
 ║        very effective, but most groups that only have suppliers that do    ║
 ║        store pick ups usually suffer from a bad reputation, an example of  ║
 ║        such would be ROR (Release on Rampage).  Is that also the case      ║
 ║        with Napalm?                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  NPM : I would say that store pick ups is one of Napalm's most effective   ║
 ║        ways in getting releases.  However, now that my buddy Shadow        ║
 ║        Master is doing store pick ups for Prestige, it's made Napalm's     ║
 ║        job a lot tougher.  Shadow Master, you're the best man!             ║

 ║        interest in the lame CD-Ripping scene.  He said the PC scene is     ║
 ║        not the same as the good old floppy days.  Next thing I know, he    ║

 ║        from IRC channel #ROR by members of ROR (Release on Rampage), is    ║
 ║        that true?                                                          ║

 ║        him under the evil leadership of tKLP.  Rom Racer has always been   ║
 ║        a great loyal honest man, why would anyone feel that they should    ║

 ║        channel #ROR?                                                       ║

 ║        guy to my niggaz, I decided to go check thing's out.  I asked my    ║
 ║        man E-Dogg to invite me over to channel #ROR.                       ║

 ║  JKG : Ok, the scene of the crime was hot.  I first wanted to see if I     ║
 ║        had any backup to help handle the tough situation.  E-Dogg wuz in   ║
 ║        there so that's all the juice I needed for now.  I said excuse me   ║
 ║        ROR members, do you MIND!!  I think Rom Racer should be unbanned    ║
 ║        he's a nice guy.                                                    ║

 ║        I took a deep breath and said to myself, that's mad fucked up, now  ║
 ║        time to DIE!!!                                                      ║

 ║        recognized that we could handle this baby in no time.  I told       ║
 ║        E-Dogg that banning Rom Racer from channel #ROR was wrong, and no   ║

 ║        "HMMMMM.. TAKE OVER THE CHANNEL".. yeah that should be a suitable   ║
 ║        lesson to teach these guys some manners.                            ║

 ║  JKG : Ok, the kickban assault began, kick ban after kick ban.  I had a    ║
 ║        major long day and I didn't want to take this bullshit.  These      ║
 ║        guys better learn their lesson.  In a matter of minutes, the        ║
 ║        entire channel was wipped out.  Members begged to be back in their  ║
 ║        long lost channel.  The whole point of this takeover was to make    ║
 ║        ROR members realise that when the mighty The Blade strikes, we      ║
 ║        mean business.  We only think that all people deserve respect, and  ║
 ║        if respect is not given, a lesson will have to be learned!          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Who planned the takeover of channel channel #ROR?                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  JKG : This sinister plot was masterminded by E-Dogg and I, and            ║
 ║        coordinated by E-Dogg, because he is by far a much more             ║
 ║        knowledgable man concerning the Internet than I.  I'm still         ║
 ║        learning.  This takeover wouldn't have been successful without the  ║
 ║        support from Rezurecta who constantly sacrificed his Internet       ║
 ║        account putting it on the line to hold off hordes of ROR members.   ║
 ║        He did want me to add that he'd much rather go down there with 2    ║
 ║        cups of blood and a gat and bust caps!                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Isn't it immature to see a well established games group such as     ║
 ║        Razor 1911 takeover a channel of a lame games group, and is this    ║
 ║        case, channel #ROR?                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  JKG : Razor 1911 is not responsible for this takeover, and has nothing    ║
 ║        to do with it, but the fine quality morals of Razor 1911 members    ║
 ║        is found within all that make up The Blade, and we stand by those   ║
 ║        no matter what!.  ROR will have their channel back soon!  We are    ║
 ║        not meanie's (like you) =).  Also, ROR is attempting to takeover    ║
 ║        #Razor, but to no avail.                                            ║

 ║        respectability within the scene by leaps and bounds?  Why did       ║
 ║        Digital retire?                                                     ║

 ║  DGT : The presidents of Digital, Devast and Silent Mobius decided to      ║
 ║        retire from the group.  As to the reason why, I myself am not       ║
 ║        sure, we have yet to inform the group.                              ║

 ║  RCN : What about Blitzkrieg, is he not also a founder and leader of       ║
 ║        Digital?  Are you telling me he does not have faith in himself to   ║
 ║        keep the group alive and kicking?                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  DGT : Blitzkrieg is a great leader, the only problem with Blitzkrieg is   ║
 ║        that he is not online too often.  If there is a new group formed    ║
 ║        as a result of this, you may well see some Digital seniors leading  ║
 ║        it.                                                                 ║

 ║  RCN : Would it be possible that Digital might merge into another courier  ║
 ║        group?  Perhaps Digital might merge into RiSC (Rise in Superior     ║
 ║        Couriering), or perhaps Digital might merge into Amnesia?           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  DGT : I think it is very possible, we have a lot of talent in our ranks.  ║
 ║        I am 100% sure that each of our traders is competent enough to      ║
 ║        join smaller trading groups and a handful have a shot at groups     ║
 ║        like Amnesia and RiSC.                                              ║

 ║        to them earlier today and they showed no signs of despising the     ║

 ║  RCN : Most FTP sites are only operational during the school year because  ║
 ║        most FTP sites are based on college campuses.  Might Digital have   ║

 ║  RCN : What does Amnesia have to say about the death of Digital?  After    ║
 ║        all, the courier contest between Amnesia vs. Digital might have     ║
 ║        harbored some harsh feelings which could lead to conflicts down     ║
 ║        the road.                                                           ║

 ║  DGT : I wouldn't say that Amnesia is the arch-enemy of Digital, most of   ║
 ║        the members of Amnesia and Digital are good friends.  Digital       ║
 ║        merely competed with Amnesia.  As for what Amnesia says about the   ║
 ║        death of Digital, that's not for me to say.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : I consider you a coordinator in Digital, after all, you were the    ║
 ║        one that helped update the nfos.  Where will you be going now that  ║
 ║        Digital is dead, which courier group are you seeking after?         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  DGT : I'm pretty open to things right now, I think that Silent Mobius     ║
 ║        and Devast may have some plans for the group, we are not the type   ║
 ║        that would leave our members lying around, we will probably start   ║
 ║        a small group for our traders and move on from there.  Right now,   ║
 ║        I am not thinking about where I might go, but I am thinking about   ║
 ║        how I should get my traders into a new courier group.               ║

 ║        by releasing tons of software, and some may even consider that      ║
 ║        Sodom is now one of the top 5 utils groups.  Do you feel that this  ║

 ║  TOK : Yes, of course it's true.  We have been working hard 10 to 14       ║
 ║        hours a day since we formed the group on July 11, 1995.  We know    ║
 ║        the scene well now and many people know us.  We have worked hard    ║
 ║        and long for our reputation, and that is part of the reason for     ║
 ║        our success.  Of course, we've had conflicts with other groups,     ║
 ║        but they've left already, and we've been preserved.                 ║

 ║  RCN : I know that Sodom is a Russian group, and that DOD (Drink or Die)   ║
 ║        is also a Russian group that advertises itself as the "Russian      ║
 ║        Warez Bears".  Do you believe that Sodom is the true Russian Warez  ║
 ║        Bears, and it has conquered that section of Europe indefinitely?    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  TOK : Hmm... this is a really long story, Sodom and DOD that is.  What    ║
 ║        can I say, we have somewhat of a competition in Russia that         ║
 ║        stemmed when Sodom and DOD were formed, and, now we're winning, so  ║
 ║        DOD is really going down hill.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : What competition was there between Sodom and DOD when Sodom first   ║
 ║        started, and what do you mean when you say that DOD is really       ║
 ║        going down hill?                                                    ║

 ║  TOK : Actually, when we were first formed, there was no competition,      ║
 ║        because it was in 1995, and back then, DOD was really famous.  It   ║
 ║        think it was the best in the scene when it came to utils.  So, we   ║
 ║        can't really talk about competition in 1995, but then, after all    ║
 ║        organization questions and communication conflicts were worked      ║
 ║        out, we moved to IRC, and began to work work work.  As I said, we   ║
 ║        worked from 10-14 hours a day.  Internet in Russia is really bad,   ║
 ║        the connection speeds are extremely slow, especially with people    ║
 ║        that are still on 9600s, so uploading is difficult.                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  TOK : Why?  Well, Jimmy Jamez, the leader of DOD, left the scene about    ║
 ║        80% of the way.  He got work in Moscow, and he didn't care about    ║
 ║        DOD any more, maybe some old seniors, but not Jimmy Jamez, and      ║
 ║        some suppliers, joined other release groups, and so half the        ║
 ║        people in the current DOD.NFO are actually NOT IN DOD.  As you can  ║
 ║        see, DOD's releases of the past two months haven't been working     ║
 ║        ones.                                                               ║

 ║  RCN : Many people know you as the leader of Sodom, but many also know     ║
 ║        that you were an editor of Defacto, and I use the word "were" in    ║
 ║        the past tense, why did you leave Defacto?  Earlier, you informed   ║
 ║        me that it was because of the Sodom Project.  What is the Sodom     ║
 ║        Project?                                                            ║

 ║  TOK : This really sucks, but Sodom was forced to drop the Sodom Project.  ║
 ║        3 or 4 council members from Defacto didn't want to be in the Sodom  ║
 ║        Project, and it became like the U.S. Revolution.  I was the main    ║
 ║        organizer of Defacto, and after this decision, I downgraded myself  ║
 ║        to writer, but RCN came back, and I think we gave you a chance to   ║
 ║        monopolize all the warez e-mags in the scene, and I think you did,  ║
 ║        and that's why Defacto #8 will be the future of e-mags!  I think I  ║
 ║        will upgrade my position back one day, but not yet, this is a hard  ║
 ║        time for me, I have exams in the university, and Sodom is taking    ║
 ║        up much of my time.                                                 ║

 ║  RCN : So you will one day become the Sodom editor again?  What exactly    ║
 ║        was the Sodom Project?  And why do you feel that Defacto #8 will    ║
 ║        be the future of e-mags?  What about Defacto #8 will make it so     ║
 ║        revolutionary?                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  TOK : Heh, okay, well, if you don't already know, Defacto was originally  ║
 ║        started by Sodom, so the founders were NetRunner, IPggi, and me.    ║
 ║        All the people who write or do anything for Defacto are in Sodom,   ║
 ║        so that's why it was called the Sodom Project.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : When will you be returning to Defacto?                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  TOK : Yes, very soon, after my exams are over, I think I will be able to  ║
 ║        return to Defacto as a *SECRET*, but anyway, #8 will be             ║
 ║        revolutionary. And do you want to know why?  Well, because it will  ║
 ║        have good coding, SVGA graphics, and many features.  Anyway, I      ║
 ║        like this competition between RCN and Defacto, but nearly everyone  ║
 ║        thinks that RCN is ruling the e-mag scene, and we are some small    ║
 ║        shit, but remember, we are only on issue #8!                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : I'm glad to see that Defacto is doing something to improve its      ║
 ║        image.  However, the idea of an SVGA e-mag is by no means a new     ║
 ║        one, the Demo and Art scene has been implementing it for years      ║
 ║        now.  What makes you think that the public will perceive it as      ║
 ║        such a revolutionary change?                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  TOK : Hmm.. well, first I'm not the coder, our coder is Captain Power,    ║
 ║        he built this in C++, Assembly, and a little Pascal source.         ║
 ║        Second, our e-mag will be much better with compression, not 2.X MB  ║
 ║        like RCN.  We also have a good VGA artist.  Many new writers        ║
 ║        applied for Defacto last week.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : RCN's size is a direct result of the many articles it presents to   ║
 ║        the scene every week.  Coding and art is but an iota of the entire  ║
 ║        EXE size.  Will this not be the opposite in Defacto?  Defacto has   ║
 ║        just a fraction of the articles that RCN does, and, assuming all    ║
 ║        goes well, Defacto will be spending much more space on mere coding  ║
 ║        and SVGA art, right?                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  TOK : Hehehe, naw man, Defacto is COMPRESSED!!!  EVERYTHING IS!!!         ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : Yes, that's true, Legacy is coming back up.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : So are you telling me that the former leaders of Legacy have come   ║
 ║        back from the retirement to restart Legacy?                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : No, the former leaders of Legacy have left the warez scene and I    ║
 ║        am merely restarting the group with new members.                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Who were the former leaders of Legacy?                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : The original founders of Legacy was Rebel Chicken and Hitex.  I'm   ║
 ║        not sure if they have left the scene completely, but I know that    ║
 ║        they are currently editors of a warez e-mag called Reality Check    ║
 ║        Network.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Do you have permission from Rebel Chicken and Hitex to start a      ║
 ║        group using the Legacy name?  Wouldn't they be upset with the fact  ║
 ║        that someone else is taking advantage of the Legacy name in order   ║
 ║        to promote a new group that had nothing to do with the old?         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : Yes, I asked Rebel Chicken and Hitex about using the Legacy name,   ║
 ║        and they did not seem upset with it at all.  They only showed       ║
 ║        apathy and indifference toward the fact that I was starting a       ║
 ║        group called Legacy.                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Are any of the former Legacy suppliers a part of this new Legacy?   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : No, but they are welcome to join if they wish to do so.  I need     ║
 ║        all the suppliers I can get my hands on.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Are any of the former Legacy members a part of this new Legacy?     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : No, and I think that's just too bad.  I think that none of the old  ║
 ║        Legacy members have joined the new Legacy because they have yet to  ║
 ║        hear that the group is coming back up.                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : As is common knowledge, Legacy died off under the leadership of     ║
 ║        Rebel Chicken and Hitex because they left the scene, what will you  ║
 ║        do differently this time that will make Legacy survive and do       ║
 ║        better than it did before?                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : I will try to make sure that the members of the group stays         ║
 ║        informed with all the group happenings.  I will try to be a good    ║
 ║        leader.  I have no thoughts.                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Will Legacy be releasing only games, or only utils, or both games   ║
 ║        and utils?                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : I have discussed that with the group and we've come to the          ║
 ║        conclusion that we will stick to releasing only games because it's  ║
 ║        too much of a hassle to release both games and utils.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Some might consider it EASIER to release both games and utils       ║
 ║        because crappy utils are easier to find and release.  Wouldn't it   ║
 ║        be easier for you if you made Legacy a utils only group, or a       ║
 ║        group that released both games and utils?                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : The utils scene is currently monopolized by groups such as PWA      ║
 ║        (Pirates with Attitudes) and DOD (Drink or Die).  The best games    ║
 ║        release group at the moment is Prestige.  I don't know why I want   ║
 ║        to make Legacy a games only group, but I just have a feeling that   ║
 ║        starting a games group would be good for now.  I have already       ║
 ║        tried doing utils before, but to no avail.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : You mentioned earlier that NONE of the original Legacy members      ║
 ║        have joined the new Legacy.  I can then infer that none of the      ║
 ║        former Legacy crackers and coders are not with you either, will     ║
 ║        your new Legacy have the same quality of coding found in the late   ║
 ║        Legacy?                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : Well, if the old crackers and coders come back to Legacy, then we   ║
 ║        will have the same quality as before.  They were really good at     ║
 ║        it, and it would be very hard to go back to their level.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : In Mortality's latest release, Omnipage Pro v7.0 for Windows 95, I  ║
 ║        found that according to the nfo file included in the release, the   ║
 ║        supplier of release was named Legacy.  Also included in the         ║
 ║        release is a legacy.nfo, do you have any information concerning     ║
 ║        this matter?                                                        ║

 ║  LGC : No, actually I didn't know about this until you informed me now.    ║
 ║        Thanks for telling me.. :).                                         ║

 ║  RCN : Where are most of the members of this new Legacy located at?  Will  ║
 ║        this new Legacy be a US group, or a European group?                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LGC : I Live in Sweden, but we have many members that live in the US, so  ║
 ║        you can say that our group is very spread out.                      ║

 ║  RCN : Where do you see Rebels today, compared to other utils groups in    ║
 ║        the scene such as DOD (Drink or Die) and PWA (Pirates with          ║
 ║        Attitudes)?                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RBS : Well, PWA has almost always been the biggest utils group in the     ║
 ║        scene, and still are.  DOD has been going down hill lately, but     ║
 ║        DOD is still made up of many good members.  Rebels is a very        ║
 ║        strong group, but we are not yet as big as PWA.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Why do you feel that Rebels is not as good as PWA?  What makes PWA  ║
 ║        better than Rebels?                                                 ║

 ║  RBS : Well, I feel that Rebels is comparable to PWA at this moment,       ║
 ║        however, PWA has been very big for several years now and Rebels     ║
 ║        has not been as big for as long a time.  In my opinion, that makes  ║
 ║        PWA the better group since I believe that experience is very        ║
 ║        important.                                                          ║

 ║  RCN : How will Rebels go about gaining such experience, do you merely     ║
 ║        get this experience by being the older group?  As far as I know,    ║
 ║        isn't Rebels OLDER than PWA?                                        ║

 ║  RBS : Yes, Rebels is a very old group and is even older that Razor 1911.  ║
 ║        Rebels has been around ever since 1984 when it was a group          ║
 ║        specialized in the Amiga scene.  Right after I first bought my PC,  ║
 ║        Omnibuz and I decided to start Rebels PC as a demo group.  We've    ║
 ║        been releasing PC utils for almost 2 years now, but the first year  ║
 ║        of releasing was really bad.  Many of the members in Rebels are     ║
 ║        former members of groups such as Nexus, Razor 1911, and TRSi.  We   ║
 ║        feel ready to rock DOD and PWA.  The scene should really watch out  ║
 ║        for us now that Pantera has merged into Rebels.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Why did Rebels switch from coding demos to releasing PC utils?      ║

 ║  RBS : Well, you really get sick of coding demos if you have been in the   ║
 ║        demo scene for 10 years doing the same thing.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Rebels is a group that is based in Sweden, does that hinder Rebels  ║
 ║        effectiveness in releasing utils?  After all, European countries    ║
 ║        are supposed to receive computer software a few weeks after the     ║
 ║        United States, or is that not true?                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RBS : Rebels is no longer based in Sweden since the merge with Pantera,   ║
 ║        over half the group is now based in the US.  Doson and Racjam are   ║
 ║        doing a hell of a job over there.  Comptuer software arrives in     ║
 ║        Europe as fast as it does in the US, so being in Europe does not    ║
 ║        effect the standing of the group.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Does Doson and Racjam help supply for the group, or do they do      ║
 ║        work as the US coordinators of Rebels?                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RBS : They have a position that is equal in standing to Omnibuz and I.    ║
 ║        The 4 of us are in charge of Rebels and we all do our bit to help   ║
 ║        the group.                                                          ║

 ║        Europe, what do you see for the future of Rebels?                   ║

 ║  RBS : Well, we are all doing this for fun and we are all good friends in  ║
 ║        Rebels.  Lots of the members in Europe are going to the US this     ║
 ║        Autumn.  Since we are such good friends, I guess we will all stick  ║
 ║        together and Rebels will grow bigger and bigger.                    ║

 ║        that is so?                                                         ║

 ║        released as much in the past weeks as they used to, but every       ║

 ║      I thought it was pretty cool the day RblChickn walked into            ║
 ║  #Sailormoon and we decided to trade ops, as it were.  I became a member   ║
 ║  of RCN, in charge of channel security, and he got to sit in my channel    ║
 ║  looking cool all night.  While chatting in #RCN one evening, Druggy       ║
 ║  popped in complaining that #Sin had no ops.  After getting ops back for   ║
 ║  the channel twice, we got to talking and I became a member.  About a      ║
 ║  week passed, and things were pretty cool.  I liked working with Druggy,   ║
 ║  and the people in #Sin were real nice.  Soon, however, all hell broke     ║
 ║  loose for a couple of days when Druggy up and went.  He wrote us all,     ║
 ║  saying that he had "lost faith and Sin".  Druggy currently is a part of   ║
 ║  the Motiv8 council, where his fate is being decided.  This interview      ║
 ║  consists of Druggy, the ex-president of Sin (Sinful Traders), and Wildd,  ║
 ║  the new president.                                                        ║

 ║      I apologize in advance for the poor quality of my interview with      ║
 ║  Druggy.  During the said interview, both of Motiv8's channels were taken  ║
 ║  over by a friend of mine, no doubt.  While talking to my friend I also    ║
 ║  received a call from my mother, and upon finding out that she was just    ║
 ║  in a car accident I had to leave immediately to pick her up.  Please      ║
 ║  note that I am not taking sides at all.  The following conversation was   ║
 ║  made between Druggy and I :                                               ║

 ║  DRG : I frist learned about Sin shortly after I left Violation about one  ║
 ║        and a half months ago.                                              ║

 ║  RCN : Not to suck up or anything, but when I joined, you were a great     ║
 ║        leader of Sin.  You were always busy, always workin hard to keep    ║
 ║        the group going.  You seemed to like it, but then why did you       ║
 ║        start to "lose faith in Sin"?                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  DRG : Well, it goes like this, back in the days of Violation, I worked    ║
 ║        my ass of for the group along with Double E, who later becomes the  ║
 ║        vice president of Sin.  Doublee busted his ass off for the group    ║
 ║        by kicking ass with the uploads, and I would take care of           ║
 ║        organizing and managing the group.  We left Violation mainly        ║
 ║        because everyone was fucking around, and leeching away and so we    ║
 ║        started Sinful Traders.  We were awesome when we were small, but    ║
 ║        when we started to become well known, more people joined, and at    ║
 ║        my fault, I did not put any of the applicants on trial.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : But big groups can make it, you did kick out like 3/4th of them,    ║
 ║        but they all seemed to keep coming back.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  DRG : Yeah, it was a fucking pain, no one took them off the channel       ║
 ║        bots, and they all still had my email.  Two particular fucks,       ║
 ║        Blankman and Demon of BaC leeched our sites for the good of the     ║
 ║        other group, which really got me pissed.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : I made the mistake there.  Nobody had master access on my bots      ║
 ║        except you, Double E, and Wildd.  They couldn't take people off,    ║
 ║        so they kickbanned them until I fixed it.  So basically, you        ║
 ║        decided to just start somewhere else, or did you decide to take     ║
 ║        some of your friends with you to join Motiv8?                       ║

 ║  DRG : Yes, I talked to Mason, and tried to get on one or two of their     ║
 ║        FTP sites so Sin could prosper, so I made him an account on the     ║
 ║        Sin WHQ, and Mason was impressed, so he brought up the idea of a    ║
 ║        merger.  I figured, if I went to Motiv8, I could help them out as   ║
 ║        a council member, I could help organize the group, and I could      ║
 ║        recruit some very dedicated couriers, and I could set up some very  ║
 ║        fast FTP sites.                                                     ║

 ║  RCN : Ahhh.. so you decided to leave Sin to join Motiv8.  What            ║
 ║        influenced your decision on who you should take along with you to   ║
 ║        Motiv8?                                                             ║

 ║  DRG : Well, quite simply, people who had their own source of warez.       ║
 ║        Most of the group relied on these few, to get the "stuff" to        ║
 ║        distribute.                                                         ║

 ║  DRG : Random is in jail because someone narqed on him.  My guess is that  ║
 ║        someone from Sin who whas furious that I abandoned them.  I gave    ║
 ║        Sin a week trial, they didn't shape up, so I left.                  ║

 ║  RCN : Wildd wasn't so sure that Random was narqed on.  He said that when  ║
 ║        his site got all the uploads from Motiv8, the disk space was        ║
 ║        filled and his administrator found the warez.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  DRG : That's a fucking lie.  It was never a MOTIV8 site!  Random was      ║
 ║        working on it!  And some mother fucking ROOT from Canada got his    ║
 ║        ass.  This was Random's second bust within a year.                  ║

 ║        Sin, and it is what screwed up the group.  Do you agree that this   ║

 ║        finals.                                                             ║

 ║  WLD : He was there, but he put more and more of a work load on seniors,   ║
 ║        and did less and less himself.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Ahh.. well, since I was not a senior, I wouldn't have noticed.  I   ║
 ║        got my fair share of tasks but it wasn't too much in return for     ║
 ║        all I was given.  So you decided you'd want to run Sin?             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  WLD : Ya, I have been with Sin from the beginning, and I looked at it as  ║
 ║        something that I helped shape.  I didn't want to give up on it,     ║
 ║        especially not now, when it needed me most.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Do you think Sin was hurt badly by Druggy leaving?                  ║

 ║  WLD : I think Sin was crippled by Druggy leaving, but we were, with the   ║
 ║        dedication of several people (you know who you are), able to        ║
 ║        regroup and come back, stronger than ever.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  WLD : The only problem I foresee with Sin in the future is that we need   ║
 ║        more FTP sites to fill.  The couriers are filling hard drive EVERY  ║
 ║        day and they are doing one hell of a job.  I've already had to      ║
 ║        have several of my couriers cut back on their uploading!            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : So Sin is stronger than ever?                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  WLD : I think it is.  We went through what should have been a             ║
 ║        devastating time, and came out even better.  I foresee things only  ║
 ║        getting better.                                                     ║

 ║  RCN : I'm trying to decide if I should join Druggy and a few of the       ║
 ║        others in Motiv8 or stay in Sin.. any advice?                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  WLD : Well.. I think Motiv8 has troubles in the future.  As you saw..     ║
 ║        they are getting hectic there with takeovers and tons of            ║
 ║        idlers/leechers.  There's never any work that gets done in the      ║
 ║        shitty council.                                                     ║

 ║  RCN : Did Sin lose a lot of members to Motiv8 or other groups?  And what  ║
 ║        is going on with Manta's desire to merge Sin with IRC?              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  WLD : Sin lost some people, but none that I miss too much.  We did lose   ║
 ║        many FTP sites.                                                     ║

 ║        got.                                                                ║

 ║  RCN : Druggy mentioned that.  I need to talk to him about it.  Manta is   ║
 ║        a traitor.  He came into Sin, and said that I announced we were     ║
 ║        merging with IRC when I was away.  Fortunately, because of a few    ║
 ║        people's quick work, I was able to keep ALL members from leaving    ║
 ║        for IRC.                                                            ║

 ║  WLD : Yeah, I was there.  He said that you would be OK with it, but did   ║
 ║        not say that you would agree.  I was talking to Crash and a few     ║
 ║        others and they all said that you would give a flat out "NO" to     ║
 ║        the merge.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Random was put in jail because this was the second time he got      ║
 ║        caught.  It was not that anyone neccesarily narqed, but that the    ║
 ║        system administrators caught on when the increased Motiv8           ║
 ║        uploading kicked in, and the space dwindled.                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  WLD : Yeah, Druggy said that Random's boss emailed him and told him to    ║
 ║        fuck off.                                                           ║

 ║  RCN : Ya.                                                                 ║

 ║  WLD : Motiv8 has lost a lot of FTP sites it seems.                        ║

 ║  RCN : Despite the desires of Manta, Sin will merge with no one.  The      ║
 ║        dedication of our people have made the Sin name as big as ever,     ║
 ║        and they deserve to keep that name.  I won't let anyone take it     ║
 ║        over.                                                               ║

 ║  RCN : I've seen COPS (Couriers of Pirated Software) release both games    ║
 ║        and utils here and there, why has COPS not taken the move to        ║
 ║        specialize in one field of releasing, or has it already done so?    ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  END : Well, I feel that if a group releases anything that it can get its  ║
 ║        hands on, it's really not a very professional group.  But if you    ║
 ║        release within a certain specialized area, such as utils, then it   ║
 ║        makes the group seem more "professional".  Another advantage of     ║
 ║        only releasing utils is that I will be able to trade games for      ║
 ║        utils with other groups, which would help make for good relations   ║
 ║        with the rest of the scene.                                         ║

 ║        traded games for utils with other games groups yet?                 ║

 ║  END : Well COPS hasn't exactly traded ANY games yet with any groups, but  ║
 ║        we plan on trading games with other groups in the future if we get  ║
 ║        a hold of some hot game releases.  I plan to trade games for utils  ║
 ║        with groups such as ROR (Release on Rampage) and Napalm.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Just a few weeks ago, I saw that COPS released Blake Stone :        ║
 ║        Aliens of Gold, the files dated back to 1993, about the same time   ║
 ║        Wolfenstein was first released to the public, why would groups      ║
 ║        such as ROR and Napalm want to trade their utils with games by      ║
 ║        COPS which have a reputation of low quality?  Anyhow, ROR has       ║
 ║        already promised to trade its utils and games strictly with         ║
 ║        Mortality and not with COPS?                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  END : Yes, I remember that release of Blake Stone : Aliens of Gold.       ║
 ║        That was a BAD release and COPS apologizes for that, but we don't   ║
 ║        intend to release anything like that in the future.  It was a bad   ║
 ║        call on my part.  Well, if ROR has already made a decision on       ║
 ║        trading utils for games only with Mortality, then that's fine.  I   ║
 ║        will find another group such as Napalm, and if COPS can't find any  ║
 ║        other groups, then fATE (Fast Action Trade Exchange) will be our    ║
 ║        next candidate.                                                     ║

 ║  RCN : Most Napalm suppliers are also in grousp such as DOD (Drink or      ║
 ║        Die) and PWA (Pirates with Attitudes), and thus have to supply for  ║
 ║        those groups, so saying that Napalm will help supply utils for      ║
 ║        COPS is definitely out of the question.  On the note of fATE, why   ║
 ║        would you trade releases with fATE?  fATE is a courier group, is    ║
 ║        it not?                                                             ║

 ║        after consulting with my council.  Those just happened to be the 2  ║
 ║        groups that I could name off the top of my head.  fATE is official  ║

 ║  RCN : As an editor of RCN, I try to keep an unbiased opinion toward       ║
 ║        groups.  However, wherever I go, it seems to me that there is a     ║
 ║        general consensus among to scene to look upon COPS as a really      ║
 ║        "lame" group.  The scene accuses COPS of releasing nothing but      ║
 ║        dupes and shareware, why do you think that is so?                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  END : Haha, well, as I learned from the latest issue of RCN (and I whole  ║
 ║        heartedly agree), is that if you call someone "lame", that person   ║
 ║        who call people lame is the person that is really lame.  But, to    ║
 ║        tell you the truth, we have only released 1 dupe and we have yet    ║
 ║        to anything that can be considered shareware. I don't know where    ║
 ║        they would get the idea that we release in those two categories,    ║
 ║        because every group has their share of "dupes" but COPS has had     ║
 ║        only 1, and the scene should give us credit on that.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : So you're saying that COPS has never released any shareware or      ║
 ║        freeware, and that COPS has only duped once in its entire           ║
 ║        existence?                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  END : Yes, COPS has only duped once, and COPS has never released          ║
 ║        shareware or freeware.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Do you lie often?  Anyway, COPS is very fortunate to have fATE as   ║
 ║        its official couriers, how did you acquire such a good standing     ║
 ║        and respectable courier group to become officials with COPS?        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  END : Well, MALiCE used to be official couriers for COPS, but then        ║
 ║        MALiCE kicked COPS out, but before that happened, Doobie from fATE  ║
 ║        was in close contact with me, and when MALiCE kicked COPS out, I    ║
 ║        jumped on the chance to get fATE in as COPS' official couriers.     ║
 ║        fATE has been doing a lot more than some of the courier groups      ║
 ║        around, especially MALiCE, which I think is DEAD now.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Why did MALiCE kick COPS out as official couriers?                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  END : The reason MALiCE kicked out COPS was because the council members   ║
 ║        in MALiCE were REALLY poor with their members.  There were fights   ║
 ║        within the group all the time.  I had repeatedly asked them to      ║
 ║        support the COPS FTP sites, they merely ignored me.  I got sick of  ║
 ║        MALiCE and the MALiCE members got sick of the council and left.     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : What do you see for the future of COPS?  Do you see it becoming     ║
 ║        one of the strong utils groups in the future?  There's a quote      ║
 ║        found in the COPS NFO, which goes as follows "Keep an eye on us,    ║
 ║        cuz we are coming very strong, VERY strong, and we are ready to     ║
 ║        tear it up and take all."  Do you believe that COPS is indeed       ║
 ║        becoming very strong, VERY strong?                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  END : Yes, I think so.  I think that COPS will become VERY strong.  It    ║
 ║        may take a couple of years, but I think that sooner or later, we    ║
 ║        will be as good as groups such as DOD and PWA.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Don't you think that aspiring to be as good as DOD and PWA might    ║
 ║        be impossible for a group such as COPS?  After all, most people in  ║
 ║        the scene are very stubborn, and most already have their heart set  ║
 ║        to believing that COPS is very lame and only releases freeware and  ║
 ║        shareware even when that might not be the case.  Perhaps, it would  ║
 ║        be easier for you to just kill COPS, and start a totally new        ║
 ║        group?                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  END : Hehe, like how you did to Legacy?  I doubt it.  Maybe it will be    ║
 ║        impossible, but I am sure that we will have "some" impact on the    ║
 ║        scene.  When people COPS releases in the future, I am sure they     ║
 ║        will come to change their minds.  But then again, you never know    ║
 ║        what will happen in the future.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : Yes, that is true, but history does repeat itself.  Anyway,         ║
 ║        according to my sources, you also ran an e-mag called Horizons,     ║
 ║        what happened to it?                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  END : Yes, we were, but a lot of our Horizon writers weren't committed    ║
 ║        enough and soon, the group died off.  I see no reason to publish    ║
 ║        an e-mag if RCN is in the scene.  I think that you guys are the     ║
 ║        best and that there should be no other e-mag.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  RCN : I must admire your tenacity in running COPS, if I were running      ║
 ║        COPS, I would have killed it off long ago, but you seem to be a     ║
 ║        hard worker, what's your secret?                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  END : COPS may not be the best group around, but we are sure as hell      ║
 ║        trying to contribute whatever we can to the scene.  And even        ║
 ║        though we may not have the "best" people in our group, or "known"   ║
 ║        people, there are a lot of new prospective members out their that   ║
 ║        are willing to commit time and energy into a group, even if that    ║
 ║        group may not be as good as DOD or PWA.  When you come into our     ║
 ║        IRC channel #C.O.P.S., you would hardly recognize anyone there.     ║
 ║        That's because these members are the NEW batch of people coming     ║
 ║        into the scene.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      BOCA RATON - a recently graduated high school senior has been         ║
 ║  charged with breaking into the computer system at Florida Atlantic State  ║
 ║  University's College of Science and Engineering, destroying a             ║
 ║  professor's electronic mail and transferring files to the internet.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Thomas Robert Stromberg, 18, who just graduted from Olympic Heights   ║
 ║  High School, was arrested Thursday at his home west of Boca Raton.  He    ║
 ║  was charged with two felonies - offenses against intellectual property    ║
 ║  and offenses against computer users.  Investigators from the FDLE         ║
 ║  (Florida Department of Law Enforcement) and FAU seized a computer and     ║
 ║  related equipment and material from Stromberg's home at 9596 Lancaster    ║
 ║  Place.                                                                    ║

 ║      FDLE agents also seized computers from other homes in the Boca Raton  ║
 ║  area.  Additional arrests are expected, FAU Detective Carl "Chuck" Aurin  ║
 ║  said.  The investigation began in February after Elise Angiollilo, FAU's  ║
 ║  director of tele-communications, discovered someone had gained access to  ║
 ║  the computers in the science and engineering department.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The hackers apparently used the account of a former FAU student to    ║
 ║  get into the unversity's computer system.  Once they had access, they     ║
 ║  twice tried to crash the computer system and wiped out the electronic     ║
 ║  mail system of Mahesh Neelakanta, the department's computer system        ║
 ║  coordinator.  Information and copyrighted software from the computer      ║
 ║  files were transferred to the Internet, where the data could be copied    ║
 ║  by anyone using the Internet.  FAU officials would not say what was in    ║
 ║  the files.                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      "The university has very significant information in the computer.     ║
 ║  The equipment is used by the state for a specific purpose : education     ║
 ║  and research," said Tom Horton, a computer science and engineering        ║
 ║  professor.                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Neelakanta found and FAU computer account that was being used to      ║
 ║  request information from an outside computer system.  The outside system  ║
 ║  asked for personal information and the individual using the account       ║
 ║  entered Stromberg's name, according to an arrest report.  Stromberg told  ║
 ║  the police he used a program to crack password files that allowed him     ║
 ║  into several user accounts where he stored pirated software.              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      This is not the first time hackers have broken into the computer      ║
 ║  system of a government agency in Palm Beach County.  In 1992, a           ║
 ║  15-year-old Jupiter boy allegedely tinkered his way into a South Florida  ║
 ║  Water Management District computer system.  Sheryl Woodm a district       ║
 ║  attorney, said she could not recall if criminal charges were filed        ║
 ║  against the boy, but she remembered seeing a letter of apology from the   ║
 ║  youth.  Investigators said most hackers break into computer systems for   ║
 ║  the bragging rights.  They usually write bulletin boards and share the    ║
 ║  information they obtain with other hackers.  Stromberg, who was a member  ║
 ║  of his school's computer club, went by the name Dr. Jekyll.  He is being  ║
 ║  held at the county jail on $1,000 bail.                                   ║

 ║      I'm a close personal friend of Demaxxus, and this morning (Monday,    ║
 ║  June 3rd), I called him at about 8:50am, like I usually do (to make sure  ║
 ║  he's awake), but this time our call was a little bit different.  There    ║
 ║  was no, "Oh ya, I'm on my way, I'll meet you there."  Instead, his reply  ║
 ║  was "No, I'm not going to school today, and mabe not for a while."        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      On monday, June 3rd, at approximately 7:30am, the house of Demaxxus,  ║
 ║  Nabiki Tendo, was raided.  The RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) was   ║
 ║  looking for miscellaneous computer peripherals and accessories that were  ║
 ║  shoplifted from stores such as Future Shop, Business Depot, and Walmart.  ║
 ║  They were also searching for computer components that were apparently     ║
 ║  missing from the school in which he attended.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The RCMP didn't find what they were looking for (like Demaxxus would  ║
 ║  be dumb enough to keep stolen stuff around), but they did confiscate an   ║
 ║  IBM Thinkpad, two 486 Dx/66s, hundreds of disks, numberous modems         ║
 ║  (ranging from 14.4 to 28.8), along with a bunch of other computer         ║
 ║  equipment.                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Also, along with the thefts, they revealed that they were watching    ║
 ║  him for some time now and had been tracing his calls.  They realized      ║
 ║  that he had been using stolen calling/credit cards to call long distance  ║
 ║  and order computer accessories.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I personally think that it's really shitty that he got busted,        ║
 ║  because over the past few months, besides occasionally giving a release   ║
 ║  to a group, he had been trying to give up the illigal shit.  He left      ║
 ║  such groups as as ROR (Release on Rampage), Pantera, KTF, Demoltion, and  ║
 ║  started joining groups like FSW, Punc, and ACiDiC, so he could code       ║
 ║  instead of supplying warez.                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Well, for all of you out there that knew Demaxxus, write a few words  ║
 ║  for him, and send them to RCN, or email them to him.  Or if you see me    ║
 ║  on IRC, I'm online as Kysr_Soze, send them to me, he's gonna be kinda     ║
 ║  bored now, and he'll need something to read.  Oh ya, and if you were      ║
 ║  expecting an ascii or a ppe from him, i hope there's no hurry...          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  *PS* Yeah!  He gave me his Internet account :).  Sorry, had to be done,   ║
 ║       needed something to un-depress myself.                               ║

 ║      Well it was nice working with you and also having you around.  I'll   ║
 ║  never forget the good times when we ran ANGuiSh for a couple months or    ║
 ║  the time when we teamed up to take Anarchist down by making a fake        ║
 ║  release called quake.zip which had a install.bat that deltree'd c:\pcb    ║
 ║  and then the idiot actually fell for it.                                  ║

 ║      You were an excellent leader and member for any group you were in,    ║
 ║  at least you have the guts to go out to stores like Business Depot and    ║
 ║  actually be able to do it non-stop with nice releases for groups          ║
 ║  starting from ROR (Release on Rampage), KTF, Panetar, The Corporation,    ║
 ║  and Rebels as far as I can remember.  You also made the PPE scene come    ║
 ║  back to life by releasing innovative PPEs for ANGuiSh, FSW (Fucking       ║
 ║  Sweet Warez) and after that, you made your way up to ACiDiC.              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I know it`s not fair about the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police)   ║
 ║  tapping your phone but give all the thanks to Anarchist, Satanic Thirst   ║
 ║  and Iceman who all helped the RCMP in this case by giving all user        ║
 ║  information and activities of them.  It's been a pleasure working with    ║
 ║  you Greg, when you read this, remember all the times I've helped you out  ║
 ║  so if you can, have your friend from school give me some releases you     ║
 ║  still have left.                                                          ║

 ║  that you have learned your lesson since you are 18 years old now.         ║

 ║      My name is Marb0l and I am writing due to the fact that many people   ║
 ║  don't really know what happend to DOD (Drink or Die).  I want to clear    ║
 ║  things up.  First off, let me say where I stand in this issue.  I am      ║
 ║  currently NOT part of DOD and never was.  I'm just a good friend of a     ║
 ║  couple of DOD members who I have acquired meeting logs from.  Anyways,    ║
 ║  this is basically what led to the DOD downfall.                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Around 6 months ago, a PWA (Pirates with Attitudes) and Razor 1911    ║
 ║  supplier we will call BILL was intending on moving to DOD from PWA, but   ║
 ║  as you all know, DOD and PWA have good relations, so the DOD council      ║
 ║  objected.  Then BILL approached The Speed Racer which is good buds with   ║
 ║  Jimmy Jamez regarding this matter.  Jimmy Jamez finally accepted BILL     ║
 ║  into DOD.  As soon as PWA heard about this, they went into a craze and    ║
 ║  started to confront DOD and at this point, Jimmy Jamez was already out    ║
 ║  of the scene so it was all up to the council to direct.  Things really    ║
 ║  heated up when the DOD council said they had no clue what was going on.   ║
 ║  PWA didn't believe them so they raged against DOD.  After a couple of     ║
 ║  days, the council notified Quackers (DOD Council, good ties with PWA).    ║
 ║  He came and after some time, cleared things up.                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Months passed and a certain DOD member was kicked from the group.     ║
 ║  He believed that he was kicked for a childish reason so he went to talk   ║
 ║  to some DOD and PWA suppliers to steal them and create his own group.     ║
 ║  Believe it or not, some agreed and then eventually DOD found out.  They   ║
 ║  contacted PWA and decided to talk to Quackers to come again and clear     ║
 ║  things up.  In Quacker's eyes, he was pissed and did kind of get things   ║
 ║  settled but then he came up with the idea to merge DOD and PWA into one   ║
 ║  group, keeping the name PWA.  DOD, of course, was not too happy with      ║
 ║  this because Quackers announced it in the meeting that he had told some   ║
 ║  suppliers not to do anything for personal reasons and also that PWA was   ║
 ║  not giving DOD a fair deal.  Still, he wanted things to happen but DOD    ║
 ║  decided against it and so Quackers LEFT DOD.  He also took DOD's top 3    ║
 ║  suppliers with him.  From there, DOD lost others as we know now such as   ║
 ║  Egoistic Fate, their WHQ, suppliers, and also Analog Kid.                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In my view, this showed that Quackers screwed DOD and wanted to       ║
 ║  totally get away from this.  After this, I really don't think DOD will    ║
 ║  be the same unless Quackers decides to give the suppliers back which I    ║
 ║  don't think will ever happen.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      A few months ago, the scene was presented with a new group,           ║
 ║  Prestige.  It started out just like any other group, kind of like COPS    ║
 ║  is right now, a bit lame, but they tried, and they tried hard, and        ║
 ║  something great became of their work.  I remember when they released      ║
 ║  Virtual Pool for Windows 3.1 on the same day that Napalm released the     ║
 ║  Windows 95 version.  That didn't work too well for them.  Little things   ║
 ║  like that made us think of Prestige as "just another group".  However,    ║
 ║  their perseverance has pulled them through those hard times and now they  ║
 ║  have pushed their way to being the #1 games group in the scene.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Somewhat unbelievable, and a bit mind boggling, that even when it     ║
 ║  was small, Prestige managed to get many Hybrid, Dynamix, and Razor 1911   ║
 ║  members to join it.  Within a week of their unification into Prestige,    ║
 ║  these members watched it go up in ranking.  Battle Arena : Toshinden,     ║
 ║  Settlers II, Total Mayhem, and Strife are just a number of this group's   ║
 ║  recent releases, and quality shines through their names.  It is a true    ║
 ║  challenge to create a group that releases with such great quality.  The   ║
 ║  pressures of the scene today make it hard to pass any release.  It is     ║
 ║  then an even harder challenge to release quality before some other group  ║
 ║  like Razor 1911 or Hybrid gets to it.  Then, the challenge toughens even  ║
 ║  more when the group is expected to do this on a regular basis (3-5        ║
 ║  releases a week!).                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Of course, with such greatness come a few mistakes, especially in a   ║
 ║  young group like Prestige.  A recent example of this would be Earthworm   ║
 ║  Jim II, in which they left out DOS4GW.EXE (another group promptly         ║
 ║  released a fix).  I don't expect to see too many more blunt mistakes      ║
 ║  such as this one in the future, though, Prestige will undoubtedly learn   ║
 ║  from its mistakes.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I am still confused as to how Prestige managed to gather so many of   ║
 ║  the scene's greats into a relatively young group.  Perhaps they just      ║
 ║  needed a change of mood.  When one joins a new group, he generally gets   ║
 ║  a feeling of motivation to make that group the greatest, and I would      ║
 ║  assume that it is for this reason that they all joined.  Either that, or  ║
 ║  the Prestige leaders have REALLY high charisma!                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Prestige has a big future ahead of it, and I have no doubt in my      ║
 ║  mind that they will achieve their highest goals in due time.  However,    ║
 ║  there is something they must remember.  In the scene, you get nowhere     ║
 ║  with a big ego.  As we saw last week in RCN #16, The Renegade Chemist, a  ║
 ║  Prestige member, thought he was "a god".  Such feelings will get you and  ║
 ║  your group nowhere, and it would be a shame for such a great group to     ║
 ║  end up crumbling because of things like this.  The Renegade Chemist       ║
 ║  originally left Razor 1911 due to a conflict involving his ego between    ║
 ║  him and The Speed Racer.  He then joined Hybrid, and ultimately left      ║
 ║  that as well due to the same problem.  Finally, he joined Dynamix, and    ║
 ║  yes, you guessed it, left that due to a problem with his ego as well.     ║
 ║  Is this a flashing yellow light?  Does this mean something about what is  ║
 ║  to come?  Perhaps, perhaps not, but it has been proven that his ego       ║
 ║  hasn't helped him any, and it would be a shame if it struck again.        ║
 ║  Assuming that his ego problem does effect his standing in the Prestige,   ║
 ║  he might leave it too.                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So the competition that Razor 1911 and Hybrid desired is here, and,   ║
 ║  well, you've got to wonder if they didn't like it better before, when     ║
 ║  they could manage to get more than 2 releases a week!  Great work         ║
 ║  Prestige, you guys are doing an awesome job, keep up the good work!  And  ║
 ║  a word for Razor 1911 and Hybrid, you're the greatest, you can make it    ║
 ║  through this!  Push your weight around a bit, show Prestige what you're   ║
 ║  really made of!                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Hi everybody, I'm Lost Soul, a cracker.  Many of you have probably    ║
 ║  noticed some games and utilities that I have cracked.  I cracked          ║
 ║  Napalm's recent release of Tony La Russa 3 Baseball 1996 Edition.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In this article, I'll talk about cracking in general and about a      ║
 ║  cracker's life.  My article is directed to the warez scene, the one       ║
 ║  which deals with the Internet and IRC as it's main field of activity.  A  ║
 ║  work as crackers isn't a matter of trickery or agility of hands, we are   ║
 ║  the most quality force of the scene.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      We deserve RESPECT, our work is the hardest work in the scene, the    ║
 ║  fact the most of us can crack anything within 10 minutes doesn't make     ║
 ║  cracking easier.  Cracking is an intellectual challenge, cracking takes   ║
 ║  a lot of reasoning and research work, every crack is different from one   ║
 ║  another.  Not all the dongles are the same, neither are the cd-checks, a  ║
 ║  working keymaker might take up to 2 hours, 2 boring hours that you sit    ║
 ║  in front of the computer in text mode and try to understand something     ║
 ║  that you're not supposed to understand, then, you have to break through   ║
 ║  it...                                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  WITHOUT CRACKERS, MOST GROUPS WOULD DIE OR THEY WOULD ONLY BE RELEASING   ║
 ║  NONWORKING SHIT.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Some words about benefits, YEZ!  Cracking is also the easiest way to  ║
 ║  get leech account on great sites, if you're a good cracker that can       ║
 ║  handle all kinds of protection and can also make a fully-working-crack    ║
 ║  fast, then you'll find your place in a quality group that have quality    ║
 ║  sites, very soon (2 to 6 months).                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  EVERY LAMER CAN BE COURIER, BUT YOU CANNOT REPLACE A CRACKER.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      No more need to do the boring job of uploading and downloading to     ║
 ║  and from BBSes, and/or FTP sites, there's no need to type 'ls' on an FTP  ║
 ║  site prompt every 180 seconds.  There's no need to open multiple FTP      ║
 ║  windows at once, nor is there any more need to leech utilities and games  ║
 ║  that you'll never use.  Once you have your FTP site in your hand, you're  ║
 ║  free to leech away as much as you need.  More than it, you can sell your  ║
 ║  FTP sites to people (that you know and trust) and even earn money!!!      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  WITHOUT PAYING A CRACKER WITH LEECH ACCOUNTS, A CRACKER WILL SIMPLY QUIT  ║
 ║  FOR ANOTHER GROUP THAT OFFERS MORE.                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Some words about fame, crackers always win some fame.  If you crack   ║
 ║  for utilities group such as UCF (United Cracking Force, for those of you  ║
 ║  who live too deep in the scene) every damn lamer around the world will    ║
 ║  remember your name.  Everybody uses UCF's wonderful keymakers and cracks  ║
 ║  such as Terminate, Bluewave, CU See-Me, WebEdit, hot dog, etc.  Once      ║
 ║  you're good enough to join UCF (UCF isn't accepting new members), your    ║
 ║  name shall remain a legend, no one actually remembers who cracked DOD or  ║
 ║  PWA's latest quality $10,000 ware that needs a 586-120Mhz + 32 MB RAM,    ║
 ║  but everyone will remember the cracker of A USEFUL PROGRAM.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH <sigh>, THE GOOD LIFE OF BEING A CRACKER???            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Life in utilities groups are the best, you hardly crack there, you    ║
 ║  crack maximum 2 programs per 3 weeks, most of the time you can sit in     ║
 ║  amenity and enjoy your leech accounts, this time, you don't have to       ║
 ║  upload to ANYONE.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      If you crack for groups such as DOD or PWA, you'll win a lot of       ║
 ║  respect from the end of the user to the end of the leaders, you'll get    ║
 ║  1-3 offers every week to leave your current group for another.  A lot of  ║
 ║  leaders will attempt to steal you from your current group into their      ║
 ║  group, they'll promise you better/more sites and calling cards and as     ║
 ║  much as you need!                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  LIFE IN GAMES GROUPS                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      If you join a games group, you'll always be in tension, you'll have   ║
 ║  to face some of the most weird protection you've ever seen.  Utilities    ║
 ║  that you usually use to crack programs wont work, you'll have to be more  ║
 ║  brilliant for it (BPINT in win / 4GW cracking) you'll crack 1-4 games     ║
 ║  every week, most have weird protection as mentioned above you'll get      ║
 ║  voice phone calls in the middle of the night.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  SOOOOOOOOOO, I WANT TO LIVE THE GOOD LIFE, HOW DO I BECOME A CRACKER?     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Don't assume that anyone can be a cracker, on your way climbing to    ║
 ║  the top, you'll face many difficulties, as mentioned before, "cracking    ║
 ║  takes a lot of reasoning and research work".  If you're not good in math  ║
 ║  or have low IQ, there's a high possibility that you simply don't match    ║
 ║  this job, so don't even bother to try.  A few of the crackers I know are  ║
 ║  gifted.                                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      To become a cracker, you must first get yourself a book on assembly,  ║
 ║  and you must then know it inside out.  Then, you must get yourself the    ║
 ║  needed tools (Soft-Ice DOS/WIN/WIN95 and Hacker's View).  Then, you must  ║
 ║  get yourself shareware utilities to crack to gain more experience.  If    ║
 ║  you did all this, you should be smart enough to know all the rest.        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  *PS* Never stick to the NOP crack, this one is the safest way to become   ║
 ║       a lame cracker.                                                      ║

 ║      Most serious couriers or suppliers have probably heard about cable    ║
 ║  modem technology by now, and a select few might even know some details    ║
 ║  about them.  A very fortunate bunch are even using them as I speak.       ║
 ║  Cable modems are devices that modulate data into RF frequencies that may  ║
 ║  be transmitted over coaxial cable (RG-6 1GHz for you info maniacs).  The  ║
 ║  signal is then converted at the curb to light impulses which travel over  ║
 ║  fiber optic cable to the headend (usually cable company's headquarters).  ║
 ║  Then it is fed into a frequency translator ($2995, owned by the cable     ║
 ║  company), which serves as the focal point of the system by routing data   ║
 ║  traffic from the reverse channel (anywhere from 11.75 to 541.25 MHz) to   ║
 ║  the forward channel (at least 10 KHz away from input frequency) for       ║
 ║  broadcast to the network devices.  The common cable modem, the Zenith     ║
 ║  Network Device, is currently :                                            ║

 ║      The ChannelMizers provide Ethernet service connectivity.  Including   ║
 ║  2 AUI (DTE) connectors and 1 AUI (DCE) connection, these are suited for   ║
 ║  connection to a hub for distribution to an entire network.  The computer  ║
 ║  applications of the future (i.e. real-time video) will require multiple   ║
 ║  ultra-high-speed delivery channels to support the anticipated demand.     ║
 ║  These channels will deliver data at rates at or near 40 Mbps using VBS    ║
 ║  (or QAM) modulation.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      With this type of architecture, a high-speed data communications      ║
 ║  link is provided for a variety of applications including Internet         ║
 ║  access, distance learning, work-at-home, healthcare, business to          ║
 ║  business and community services.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      This technology, combined with low pricing ($25 to $50 per month for  ║
 ║  500K) will allow people in the warez scene to have high speed             ║
 ║  connections at home, not just at the office.                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I believe that this and DVD technology (covered in Issue #15 of RCN)  ║
 ║  will drastically change our scene's productivity.  Being able to get one  ║
 ║  CD or even many CDs in the time it would currently take to download a     ║
 ║  normal 10 disk release, and then putting it on an 4.7 gig data cartridge  ║
 ║  will definitely surpass the old analog clunkiness of 28.8's and hard      ║
 ║  drives.  Actually having modems that are faster than our hard drives      ║
 ║  will definitely be a thing to put a smile on your face.  We've all had    ║
 ║  to sit through long downloads, just to find that the release doesn't      ║
 ║  work.  However, cable modem technology will cause much confusion as soon  ║
 ║  as it is first introduced.  The reason for this is that the Internet      ║
 ║  backbone is not currently capable of pushing 500+ kbps to each and every  ║
 ║  user that is online at any given modem.  But as always, the Internet      ║
 ║  backbone is constantly being upgraded, and some time in the future, we    ║
 ║  can all expect to be able to download a disk every 3 seconds. This        ║
 ║  technology is one that can only improve the standing of the scene and     ║
 ║  the way in which it works.                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      As many of you already know, there is such a thing called AOL.        ║
 ║  Yeah, you say, it's the lamest collection of 5 million people             ║
 ║  imaginable!  Well, let's look at this from a fresh standpoint.  Out of    ║
 ║  AOL's 5 million members, 4.7 million are your average Joe who just think  ║
 ║  it's "cool" that someone can "e-mail" them, and that they are on the      ║
 ║  "Information Superhighway", (God, I hate that term!) but what about the   ║
 ║  other 300,000 people?                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      What about the ones that hang out in AOL's "warez" chat rooms?  This  ║
 ║  can be broken down like this : 85% are total lamers who can't get into    ║
 ║  the shittiest pirate board, 15% are people who don't have time to call    ║
 ║  regular pirate boards and don't have high-speed Internet connections.     ║
 ║  Even with these seemingly unfavorable percentages, the "elite" of AOL     ║
 ║  have managed to courier huge amounts of warez and distribute them to      ║
 ║  many more people than plausible via FTP or DCC.  This is because getting  ║
 ║  warez from one place to another using the AOL mailing system does not     ║
 ║  require the actual transfer of data.  Only the references to the files    ║
 ║  are assigned to users.  Therefore, it makes it possible to transfer       ║
 ║  gigabytes in minutes (i.e. average size of a file attached to an e-mail   ║
 ║  is 10-20 megs, massmail of 100 messages takes about 3 minutes - 1 gig).   ║
 ║  On the base of this relatively high speed infrastructure, it is much      ║
 ║  easier to courier warez.  Considering this ease-of-transfer, and          ║
 ║  relative ease-of-use of AOL in general, dozens of groups form and die in  ║
 ║  months on AOL.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Most of them are victims of the mile-high egos of their leaders and   ║
 ║  members, or just plain laziness.  But some of them survive, and deliver   ║
 ║  quality releases from groups like Hybrid, Napalm, Razor 1911, and more.   ║
 ║  One example is UPS - the frontier group on AOL.  The "couriering" nature  ║
 ║  of AOL makes it a bad base for releasing groups, so the only groups       ║
 ║  found on AOL are ones that courier.                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Since the idea of the scene is to make good software accessible to    ║
 ║  all for evaluation, AOL could be said to provide a good extension of the  ║
 ║  scene and its purpose.                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Many have, in the past, asked me what it takes to start a release     ║
 ║  group.  Unfortunately, most asked me before I had ever considered         ║
 ║  starting one.  I would always just say "I have no idea, it's too time     ║
 ║  consuming", or something to that effect.  But in truth, I have found      ║
 ║  that it has several advantages over starting a courier group.  Here's a   ║
 ║  general tutorial as to how to one can get a release group going and also  ║
 ║  how to keep it going, provided you eventually learn what you're doing     ║
 ║  and keep that up.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      First, you must be ready to sit around sometimes doing all-nighters   ║
 ║  working on a release.  You must be able to stay on IRC all night          ║
 ║  chatting about one particular release if it is required that you do so.   ║
 ║  You must also be very perceptive if you are the one checking the          ║
 ║  releases, to make sure that the release has no bugs or such things like   ║
 ║  copy protection or cd checks that might have been overlooked by the       ║
 ║  cracker.  You could do what Hybrid and probably a few other groups do     ║
 ║  and just decompile the code and add your own special little effects, or   ║
 ║  you could just crack it plain and simple.  Whatever you do, though, make  ║
 ║  sure you have more than one person check the program.  Nobody's perfect,  ║
 ║  especially not after having been on IRC all night.                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Next, you have to either be a very good negotiator or you just have   ║
 ║  to know a lot of different people.  You're not going to be able to do     ║
 ║  everything by yourself, even if you think you can.  There's a lot of      ║
 ║  individual work that needs to be done to get a release group going.  You  ║
 ║  have to have a cracker, packager, and supplier just to get one release    ║
 ║  out.  You should have more than one of all of those, in case one of them  ║
 ║  isn't around to help, so you can get the release out as quickly as        ║
 ║  possible, without compromising quality.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      It is important to have a lot of quantity in your releases, but it    ║
 ║  is equally important to have quality, if not more so.  If you release 15  ║
 ║  games a month and none of them work, nobody is going to want to have      ║
 ║  anything to do with you and then even if you do start releasing working   ║
 ║  programs, your reputation will be so bad that nobody will download        ║
 ║  anything of yours.  That's one main reason you want to have more than     ║
 ║  one person look at the release before it gets out onto the Internet, and  ║
 ║  then around the world.  You definitely don't want to turn into an early   ║
 ║  Napalm, releasing the program and THEN a fix for it!                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Make sure you can get an official courier group, or have internal     ║
 ║  couriers to spread the warez for you, but preferably an official          ║
 ║  courier, because you don't want to have so many members that you forget   ║
 ║  who is in the group.  Still, you don't want so few people that everybody  ║
 ║  has to work their ass off for every single release.  They probably have   ║
 ║  a life too, unless they happen to be Endeavour of COPS (Couriers of       ║
 ║  Pirated Software) or tKLP of ROR (Release on Rampage).                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      You might try a PPE division, but I haven't really seen many groups   ║
 ║  actually release any QUALITY PPEs.  Most are just recompiled versions of  ║
 ║  old PPEs.  Try splitting the group into many divisions, getting one or    ║
 ║  two people dedicated to monitoring what's going on in their area, things  ║
 ║  will go much smoother that way.  If some area seems to be lacking things  ║
 ║  to do, and another area has many people doing nothing, get those idling   ║
 ║  people into the other area, perhaps they will actually help.  And you     ║
 ║  don't necessarily have to have mercy on slackers, they don't deserve to   ║
 ║  be in your group if they can't contribute.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Another important factor to a group is its BBSes.  You could either   ║
 ║  have them or just disregard the idea of having BBSes all together.        ║
 ║  BBSes aren't entirely useful, since the whole scene operates on the       ║
 ║  Internet these days, but maybe you want to have them just to give your    ║
 ║  couriers something else to do, to get rid of the tension of the           ║
 ║  Internet, and it also gives an extra section to add to your NFO!          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Art?  Who cares about art?!  Maybe somebody does.  If your NFO file   ║
 ║  looks like it should be titled "Revenge of TheDraw Fonts", you probably   ║
 ║  won't have such a great impression on people.  This goes for your DIZ as  ║
 ║  well.  You might also want to setup a web page one of these days, and if  ║
 ║  you have all kinds of neat pictures for them to look at, it's going to    ║
 ║  be more interesting and catch people's attention more easily.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      You should try and get everything going as soon as possible, and see  ║
 ║  that the members of your group are as dedicated as possible.  Many        ║
 ║  groups do not allow their members to be in another group, but many do to  ║
 ║  give their members experience.  Try to get as many experienced members    ║
 ║  as possible, but you don't want to have an experienced member who is in   ║
 ║  38 different groups.  He probably won't be able to give his most to all   ║
 ║  the groups, and definitely will give most of his releases to other        ║
 ║  groups, and that may not do much other than add another name to your      ║
 ║  NFO.                                                                      ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best games release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║
 ║  --------                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The game didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 1] The game was a dupe or freeware,                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  [ 4] Above Average, and                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 5] Excellent!                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  game will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best games release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The game didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  game will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best games release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The game didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 1] The game was a dupe or freeware,                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  game will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best games release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The game didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  game will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best utils release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The util didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 1] The util was a dupe or freeware,                                     ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  util will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best utils release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Points :                                                                  ║

 ║  [-3] The util didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 1] The util was a dupe or freeware,                                     ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  util will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best utils release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  util will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║      Hello, and welcome to Reality Check Network's all new group review!   ║
 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 5 best utils release groups in the scene.    ║
 ║  Well, actually, *I* won't be the one reviewing them, *THEY* will be!      ║
 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  [-3] The util didn't work and a crack/fix was not released within 72      ║
 ║       hours.  The group may regain the 3 lost points by releasing a crack  ║
 ║       or fix, even beyond the 3 day period.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      A group may lose points the following week and have their releases    ║
 ║  labeled as broken (thus receiving the proper amout of points).  If the    ║
 ║  group has released a fix between the two issues, we'll give them credit   ║
 ║  accordingly.  If a group releases a fix within a 3 day period, the        ║
 ║  util will be rated as if it worked in the first place, thus getting the   ║
 ║  3 points it lost back and any points it would have earned.  If a group    ║
 ║  releases a fix after the 3 day period has expired, it will receive its 3  ║
 ║  points back, but get no more.  Betas may receive no more than 3 points.   ║

 ║  the install dir, edit dk.inf, and find the line 'Directory [SOURCE DIR]   ║
 ║  := DK'.  Change DK to "." then save it, and it should install fine.       ║
 ║  When playing, it keeps coming up with some sound error, if someone works  ║
 ║  out how to stop this, please let me (_lunatic on IRC) know.  You have a   ║
 ║  choice of three pre-generated characters, which pissed me off (how hard   ║
 ║  would it have been to let you create your own character?), but you do     ║
 ║  get a nice animated intro once you've chosen one.  The game itself looks  ║
 ║  quite nice, til you start moving.  Damn thing moves far too fast, turns   ║
 ║  too fast, and generally makes it damn hard to play.  Playing the dwarf,   ║
 ║  I found an axe and chainmail right near the start, but couldn't work out  ║
 ║  how to put the chainmail on for ages.  The inventory screen shows up      ║
 ║  with a transparent background, so you can still see your surroundings,    ║
 ║  but this makes it very difficult to see the lines leading from the body   ║
 ║  to the armor column on the right, you have to put body armor in the       ║
 ║  middle slot. Stupid flaws, movement problems, and an annoying delay       ║
 ║  between pushing the map button and actually getting the map (due to it    ║
 ║  changing resolution I think), combine to seriously lower this games       ║
 ║  score, it could've been great.  The movement problems are especially      ║
 ║  pronounced when trying to fight something (combat is realtime), you'll    ║
 ║  die easily.  Get it if you're a rabid rpg fan, if not don't bother.       ║

 ║      Disk 11 of this release was badly packaged and had crc errors in      ║
 ║  the arj.  All copies found were like this, but the game still works,      ║
 ║  because the error is in a .mov file and has little effect if any.  This   ║
 ║  rip is basically a total waste of time.  The cd is mainly comprised of    ║
 ║  .mov from various decades in SNL.  There are four games included that     ║
 ║  deal with SNL.  One is where you are that fat dude who looks like Newt    ║
 ║  Gingrich and you sit there slamming bills that come by on your desk as    ║
 ║  fast asa possible.  Another is pacman, but with Bill Clinton and          ║
 ║  hamburgers.  Yet another is a puzzle game, and the last one is a weird    ║
 ║  board type game where you try to get votes by moving the pieces a         ║
 ║  certain way.  It's not worth 22 disks for just those four games.          ║

 ║      A word about installation : make sure the path you change in the      ║
 ║  setup.ini points to the s2 subdir, and not the settlers2 dir, else it     ║
 ║  won't work.  I haven't had a long look at this, but it appears to be      ║
 ║  Settlers 1 (also known as Serf City) with nicer graphics, and more        ║
 ║  easily available information.  Everything was represented pictorially in  ║
 ║  the first one, which meant much rereading of the manual to figure out     ║
 ║  what the hell was going on.  The interface is very similar, so anyone     ║
 ║  who's played the 1st one will have no problems getting right into this.   ║
 ║  It apears to support multi-player options, network at least (One          ║
 ║  scenario had 7 players).  Settlers2 supports a variety of resolutions,    ║
 ║  from 640x480 up to 1024x768, and looks very nice.  For people who         ║
 ║  haven't got a clue what it is, Settlers2 is a strategy game where you     ║
 ║  tell your people what to build, where to build it, and provide them with  ║
 ║  roads to get there, presented in a 3/4 sort of view.  Provided you have   ║
 ║  the necessary raw materials, you'll get a little guy who goes out and     ║
 ║  flattens the area, then an engineer comes out and waits for the building  ║
 ║  materials, then people transport the materials to him and you watch as    ║
 ║  he constructs the building.  You have lumberjacks to cut down trees,      ║
 ║  foresters to plant more trees, little guys who quarry stone, miners,      ║
 ║  surveyors (so you know where to build mines), and all sorts of other      ║
 ║  cool shit.  Eventually, you tell your knights to bash the enemy, and      ║
 ║  watch the little guys sword-fighting (very cool), and hopefully bash the  ║
 ║  enemy and take over their territory.  A cool game if u like strategy      ║
 ║  games, and very nicely presented.                                         ║

 ║      Well finnaly, a version for all of non-macint...I mean win95 users.   ║
 ║  EWJ2 is everything you could expect it to be based on the first one.      ║
 ║  Totally new ideas, from making sure puppy's land safely across to using   ║
 ║  old grandma's special chair to go up the stairs to picking up cows and    ║
 ║  getting them to milk.  This one is exactly the same in engine as the      ║
 ║  first one is, you do however have new weapons.  Now you have this bogger  ║
 ║  thingi instead of using the whip to go across you can use this, plus      ║
 ║  there are a ton of new gun types.  And instead of that off and on         ║
 ║  helicopter'ish thing on his head, you have a snot parachute.  The game    ║
 ║  is great if you like platform games.  It is challenging, but not overly   ║
 ║  challenging to the point where you get frustrated.  Worth checking out    ║
 ║  if you haven't gotten one to work.  Just follow the nfo!                  ║

 ║      Like the nfo says, even though it says it's for Micro Machines, well  ║
 ║  it's not, this game is practically the same thing as Smash TV, the        ║
 ║  arcade game.  You go from room to room blasting your weapons at the       ║
 ║  enemy.  It'll keep you busy for a while, but as with all games like this  ║
 ║  you'll become easily bored eventually.  The game is pretty good, nice     ║
 ║  sound to it, and the graphics are fine.  It'll make ya sweat if you get   ║
 ║  into it.  There are sectors with all different rooms and they lead to     ║
 ║  the end boss guy, you defeat him and go on to the next sector.  I did     ║
 ║  notice a few bug'ish problems, the first one is if you put it on easy,    ║
 ║  and when it's past the second sector, it's supposed to automatically      ║
 ║  adjust it to the harder settings, but it says it is going to do it, but   ║
 ║  in actuality locks up.  Another bug is when you enter your high score     ║
 ║  in, it won't let you leave the screen, unless it's some special combo of  ║
 ║  keys.  If you're looking for some quick action here's your solution, but  ║
 ║  don't expect to play it too long.                                         ║

 ║      Oh man, you just know I have to make fun of this one.  This is a      ║
 ║  bowling game sorta like in the sense of strip poker, but it's bowling.    ║
 ║  "0o0o baby look at the size of those 8lb balls of yours, and your pin is  ║
 ║  standing so erect." This game is hilarious, not only are the              ║
 ║  wanna-be-models incredibly stupid and bad actors, but I JUST KNOW this    ║
 ║  game was made by some 20 sumtin year old NERD who can't get any.  So the  ║
 ║  dude makes this thinkin' he'll get some from the models.  Well the dude   ║
 ║  who probably made this, put himself in the game as the "sleazeball"       ║
 ║  owner of the bowling alley.  It's so funny to listen to this dork talk    ║
 ║  to you, trying to be an actor, with his speech impediment.  If you don't  ║
 ║  get this game just for the fun of it, get it so you can have a good       ║
 ║  laugh AT IT.  The simple object to the game is to go on the bowling       ║
 ║  alley, bowl a game, do good, get points, go to the Pro Shop and pay to    ║
 ║  see them strip, which in actuality is dumb, b/c you can just go view the  ║
 ║  .mov files yourself.  I only found upper nudity in this one, so it sucks  ║
 ║  for that too.  But if ya got some free time download this one just for a  ║
 ║  good laugh.                                                               ║

 ║      This is an excellent Mechwarrior type game.  The game is smooth no    ║
 ║  matter what you run it on.  You're given 6 different choices of type of   ║
 ║  ships and enough arenas and stuff to last you a long time.  You go from   ║
 ║  qualifying levels to harder and harder levels.  The sound is not much,    ║
 ║  but the graphics are nicely done for this type of game.  Plenty of        ║
 ║  options, and two different styles of game to try out, one with cheating,  ║
 ║  one w/o, enough options to make it the way you want it.  A good mech      ║

 ║      First off, let me just quote the nfo on this one, it's kinda outta    ║
 ║  the blue : "Release note: Pray for Death? - At first I thought this was   ║
 ║  a game about ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Napalm members? - But turns it turns out to    ║
 ║  be a fighting game." Kinda cruel eh?  I thought so.  Anyway, <I say that  ║
 ║  a lot don't I?>, well anyway <damnit there I go again>, this is another   ║
 ║  in the line of fighting games, like MK, MK1, MK2, SF, SSF, SSF2, SSF2     ║
 ║  TURBO, Killer Instinct, Primal Rage, shall I go on?  You can only try     ║
 ║  out two of the characters, but you can tell this will turn out to be a    ║
 ║  pretty good game.  Excellent graphics, but there is no sound.  Nice       ║
 ║  interactive backgrounds, but the characters are a bit too big for the     ║
 ║  screen.  Hope you have the cpu to handle this one too, or it'll be way    ║
 ║  to slow.  The game has potential, we'll see if it lives up to it.         ║

 ║      If you don't have a joystick, in order to get into the game you need  ║
 ║  to hit your pause/break key like as soon as the jostick calibration menu  ║
 ║  comes up or it will kick your ass into dos.  However as my limited        ║
 ║  explorations into the game have found, you won't be able to play the      ║
 ║  game with the keyboard anyway b/c the keys they have set for it don't     ║
 ║  fucking work!  And of course in all the detailed programming that went    ║
 ║  into this, they couldn't add one more thing so you could make your own    ║
 ║  working keys.  The problem comes when you try to pitch the ball, it       ║
 ║  well, just doesn't pitch.  The k/b keys are just majorly whack.  The      ║
 ║  game however looks great, you have all the fields, all the real players,  ║
 ║  and an excellent game engine that brings back the feeling of good arcade  ║
 ║  like baseball games rather than simulation types.  If only I could        ║
 ║  actually play a full game.  Some other really cool things that happen     ║
 ║  are: (1) The computer doesn't pitch to you, it likes having a starig      ║
 ║  contest w/ the batter I guess (2) When ya hit pause/break for the menu    ║
 ║  in the game and you choose leave game and put it on yes, it just doesn't  ║
 ║  leave, that's pretty cool.  Don't get it unless ya got a joystick.        ║

 ║      I remember back in the days of Legacy when people would always        ║
 ║  complain about our DIZ saying "It's just a generic TheDraw font!!!"       ║
 ║  "Sure," I would respond, "but what's wrong with that!?"  I never managed  ║
 ║  to grasp the reasoning behind spending so much time on a great DIZ.  I    ║
 ║  actually liked our DIZ, it was legible, eye-pleasing, yet didn't go out   ║
 ║  of its way to get your attention.  Nevertheless, people have always had   ║
 ║  a thing for a good DIZ.  So I Rebel Chicken and I decided to go capture   ║
 ║  a bunch of DIZ's and see which we thought were the most extravagantly     ║
 ║  beautiful, and which we thought were the most putridly ugly.  Both Rebel  ║
 ║  and I scored on a scale of 0-5, 0 being "Damn, that's the ugliest thing   ║
 ║  I's ever seen!" and 5 being "Goddamn whatta DIZ!"  We added the scores    ║
 ║  together to make a final score based on a scale of 0-10, 10 being the     ║
 ║  best.                                                                     ║

 ║      Following are the 10 (5 Best followed by 5 Beastliest) DIZ's out of   ║
 ║  our pile of 42 that we thought were the most Heavenly/Hideous, the most   ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I "collect" NFO files, not very serious, but whenever I see an NFO    ║
 ║  file I don't have, I keep it for fun.  This week's topic seemed kinda     ║
 ║  interesting because I have over 120 different NFO files from this year    ║
 ║  only, that's 5 new NFO groups each week, and there are plenty that I've   ║
 ║  missed.  I know some of these groups have merged into others to form a    ║
 ║  new group and so on, but 120 different groups since January 1st is a      ║
 ║  lot.  A lot of these groups are courier groups, most of them just a       ║
 ║  bunch of wannabe couriers who think it's cool to make a group with some   ║
 ║  fancy name.  They have lots of members, and they disappear quick, either  ║
 ║  merged into another group, where the good ones stay and the rest get      ║
 ║  kicked (and probably start another group).                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Then we have the release groups, lots of my NFO's says : "We are a    ║
 ║  new group totally dedicated to releasing quality warez and to have fun,"  ║
 ║  they might release 2-3 things that the "elite" groups wouldn't touch if   ║
 ║  they got paid and then you never hear from'em again, but sometimes they   ║
 ║  have a new supplier that actually does supply quality stuff, but          ║
 ║  he/she(?) probably gets snatched by another group that is a little more   ║
 ║  experienced.                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Then we have the groups that come from some local scene, Israel,      ║
 ║  Spain, Finland, Denmark, some area in the US or whatever, that            ║
 ║  unfortunately thinks it's a good idea to go worldwide, they have hardly   ║
 ║  any luck making it big internationally but they do provide something for  ║
 ║  the local scene, pushing warez to the national small 1 node BBSes.        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      These "easy come, easy go" groups doesn't do much for the whole       ║
 ║  scene in my view, but they do provide a starting point for the newbie     ║
 ║  who has the talent.  A newbie would never be able to join RiSC or PWA     ║
 ║  first day in the scene so it's a good way for them to prove themselves    ║
 ║  to the scene.   If they're good they'll be noticed and picked up by some  ║
 ║  elite group.                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I usually download every piece of software I find, even if it's from  ║
 ║  some unknown group, they deserve a chance, but if I find Quake or         ║
 ║  Windows NT v4.0 released by KRADiCAL iNTERNET RELEASE KRiMiNALZ or        ║
 ║  something, I skip it, but if it sounds genuine I give it a chance.  I     ║
 ║  would never download some "Necrophilias Guide To Cooking v2.1 BETA"       ║
 ║  though, but then I'm not necrophilic either.  It is up to the one that    ║
 ║  finds it to download it, but their releases seldom has mass appeal, it's  ║
 ║  usually some unknown utility/game that not many will benefit from, but    ║
 ║  they don't hurt the scene when releasing, after all it's what the scene   ║
 ║  is about.                                                                 ║

 ║  Dear Aquistic,                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Well, one reason I believe that people start these one week groups    ║
 ║  is, some people have a big thing with taglines, when they enter a room    ║
 ║  they have to have a 40 character tagline to feel important.  They don't   ║
 ║  seem to realize how much work goes into running even a small group and    ║
 ║  actually try to do something with it.  The one week groups don't exactly  ║
 ║  hurt anything, but they don't really help anything.  This morning I had   ║
 ║  someone message me about his 1 day old group and how they did 3 releases  ║
 ║  today alone.  When people say this to me i ask, what have you released    ║
 ║  that was good?  I usually get silence, or am told I am not eleet enough   ║
 ║  to know good from bad.  It is rare for these little groups to release     ║
 ║  something of high quality, BUT it does happen, just not enough :).        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As for one week courier groups, WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU GONNA COURIER    ║
 ║  FOR???  All the big groups have had the same couriers for A LONG TIME,    ║
 ║  and there are so many courier groups out now that it doesn't make any     ║
 ║  sense to start another.  If you think you are good enough to make your    ║
 ║  own group run that good, join Motiv8 or Malice, they already have the     ║
 ║  affiliations.  I just watched a new courier group die.  I was told how    ║
 ║  they have these great FTP sites, and all this shit, BUT, there is         ║
 ║  nothing to courier!  Now, I know I will catch shit from some of the       ║
 ║  small groups, BUT, we will wait a month and if you are still around       ║
 ║  good..  If not, well...see ya!                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      By the way, I always try to help the small new release groups all I   ║
 ║  can.  They usually have REAL nice members, and are still having fun at    ║
 ║  this.  Some of the older groups' members turn into dicks, and think they  ║
 ║  are all WAY ELEET, and don't have the time to deal with real people.      ║
 ║  Join a new group's channel and it is usually pretty laid back and happy.  ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  <Pisces> (February 20 to March 20): You can't afford to sit on IRC all    ║
 ║           day when your future happiness and security are at risk.         ║
 ║           Indeed, you'd be well advised to make your intentions known.     ║
 ║           If you are gay, or your name so happens to be Incarante, do not  ║
 ║           be afraid to come out of the closet, with Mercury resuming its   ║
 ║           normal direction over the Moon this coming week, this would be   ║
 ║           a perfect time.                                                  ║

 ║  <Aries> (March 21 to April 20) : Don't be put off by someone's lack of    ║
 ║          faith in your abilities to join a warez group.  You ruler Mars,   ║
 ║          strongly supported by Jupiter, is opening the right doors.  All   ║
 ║          you have to do is send some applications to warez groups, and     ║
 ║          you're bound to be accepted with open arms.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Taurus> (April 21 to May 21) : This is not the moment to sacrifice an    ║
 ║           ambition or ignore a professional opportunity.  In fact, you     ║
 ║           could hardly pick a better week to start your very own Internet  ║
 ║           warez group.  However, if you do start an Internet warez group   ║
 ║           this week, don't fool yourself in believing that your group      ║
 ║           will last more than a few days.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Gemini> (May 22 to June 21) : Finish what you start this week, or you    ║
 ║           could end up losing out to someone who lacks your style, talent  ║
 ║           and knowledge.  After your ruler Mercury alters its course to    ║
 ║           the Moon, there will be nothing to stop you from pulling off a   ║
 ║           potentially major coup.  If your name so happens to be Digital   ║
 ║           Vampire, this is a perfect time to name yourself the new leader  ║
 ║           of the dead courier group MALiCE, you are sure to succeed.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Cancer> (June 22 to July 23) : Positive planetary activity in your       ║
 ║           opposing sing of Capricorn suggest that you no longer have to    ║
 ║           toe the line regarding an especially intense Internet            ║
 ║           relationship.  You'll get what you want even sooner than you     ║
 ║           expected.  If your name so happens to be Winterhawk, utilizing   ║
 ║           more than one dildo at a time will satisfy your needs.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Leo> (July 24 to August 23) : Your ruler, the Sun, in conjunction with   ║
 ║        Uranus, planet of the unexpected, suggests that a sudden turn in    ║
 ║        events is about to upstage a partnership issue on a FTP site or on  ║
 ║        a BBS.  Since you're able to turn the tide in your favor, you       ║
 ║        should do so, even if it means upsetting others.                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Virgo> (August 24 to September 23) : With your communicative ruler       ║
 ║          Mercury resuming its regular projectory to the Moon, it's time    ║
 ║          for you to plan a change.  Come up with a new handle, and you     ║
 ║          will receive good luck.  There are those who many try to impede   ║
 ║          your progress, but you know more than they do.  The more idiotic  ║
 ║          your new handle, the more you stand to gain.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Libra> (September 24 to October 23) : The combined influence of          ║
 ║          assertive Mars and confident Jupiter will encourage you to        ║
 ║          pursue whatever action it takes regarding your cybersex life.     ║
 ║          There are those who will call you names, ignore their words, and  ║
 ║          you will find true happiness.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Scorpio> (October 24 to November 22) : It's time to show a certain       ║
 ║            person that you're not kidding around, and that you're not      ║
 ║            prepared to stay on the sidelines for a minute longer than      ║
 ║            necessary.  There have been rumblings among the IRC channels    ║
 ║            you frequent, and only you can quiet the situation.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Sagittarius> (November 23 to December 21) : The Sun in your opposite     ║
 ║                sign of Gemini is highlighting a union, it seems that you   ║
 ║                should try to be a little less self-centered.  Since you    ║
 ║                are in a position to provide tremendous help for someone    ║
 ║                close, it would be churlish not to.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Capricorn> (December 22 to January 20) : A creative or romantic liaison  ║
 ║              is brilliantly aspected thanks to Mars and Jupiter, and you   ║
 ║              many never better your chance at finding an IRC boyfriend or  ║
 ║              girlfriend this week.  But, first, you must be sure that you  ║
 ║              have full support of someone whose opinion you value.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      I have found a user in your Internet domain who plays a large role    ║

 ║  dedicated to the transfer of illegal commercial software to a large       ║
 ║  audience of users on the Internet.  They use the most efficient and       ║

 ║      In an effort to stop software piracy on the Internet, I have been     ║
 ║  monitoring various groups of users on the Internet Relay Chat network.    ║
 ║  This medium of communication has become very popular with "warez"         ║
 ║  pirates who exchange commercial software illegally.  On the IRC network,  ║
 ║  groups of people come together to use sophisticated methods to            ║
 ║  distribute commercial software to literally thousands of users.  With     ║
 ║  such large scale distribution methods, the software industry is losing    ║

 ║  you take a brief scan of the user's home-directory and check for any      ║
 ║  suspicious files.  If you cannot do this, I recommend that you keep a     ║
 ║  close eye on this user and watch for any unusual activities.  Please      ║

 ║      I believe this user, Chris Carter, is violating numerous laws, to     ║
 ║  include guidelines set forth by the Electronic Frontier Foundation        ║
 ║  (EFF).  His means of monitoring are clearly illegal in the United         ║
 ║  States.  He is known to use hacked accounts, send false mail, hide his    ║
 ║  address, monitor channels in "IRC" through stealth modes - his presence   ║
 ║  not visible to users of the channels.  He is also making great            ║
 ║  accusations with no evidence causing undue harassment and libel.  Undue   ║
 ║  conflict between user and administrator and possibly resulting in the     ║
 ║  loss of accounts, if not involvement by state/local/federal authorities.  ║
 ║  Chris Carter's tactics seem to be strategic and premeditative in nature,  ║
 ║  a direct attack on the reputation of whomever he chooses to harass.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      It is encouraged that the unethical and unlawful behavior of Chris    ║
 ║  Carter be stopped, to protect privacy, freedom of speech, reputations of  ║
 ║  the innocent and prevent him from abusing any other computer systems      ║
 ║  through subversive and/or illegal "hacking" methods.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Chris Carter certainly gets around.  Upon mention of his name, many   ║
 ║  people have spoken out in outrage at his actions and methods. This        ║
 ║  e-mail is a collective result of concerned citizens in both the United    ║
 ║  States and abroad.  To my knowledge, there are seven other instances of   ║
 ║  such accusations sent via e-mail with no support.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Upon contact, a system administrator from the first provider has      ║
 ║  stated that they have checked the files of the user in question,          ║
 ║  permissible by a written legal form signed by the account purchaser, and  ║
 ║  have not found a single thing of illegal nature.  Why is this violation   ║
 ║  of privacy necessary due to the likes of Mr. Carter, who does not seem    ║
 ║  to respect the rights of innocent people?  One must wonder whether        ║
 ║  Carter's basis for these accusing messages has anything to do with the    ║
 ║  reason of "software piracy" as Carter states.  If so, his observations    ║
 ║  are error-prone.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The second provider involved has not commented.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Thank you for your time and, hopefully, support.  Chris Carter is a   ║
 ║  criminal by any standards and must be dealt with by legal means before    ║
 ║  spreading more harm among the Internet community.                         ║

 ║      I sort of gave up on our Chicken for a few weeks, I figured it was    ║
 ║  hopeless.  I was right.  So I came over to spend the night last night     ║
 ║  because we were going to work on RCN #17.  We also brought Xenon over so  ║
 ║  he could code some stuff for us.  I got in my sleeping bag, we were       ║
 ║  going to talk a bit about the articles for the upcoming issue, talk       ║
 ║  about the cover story, and I noticed something weird happening in he      ║
 ║  bunk above me.  No, he wasn't jacking off, it was worse.  No, he wasn't   ║
 ║  playing footsie with Xenon, it was worse than that too.                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Apparently our Chicken has come up with a new habit.  He had a        ║
 ║  puppet of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Michelangelo in his arms.  I lay  ║
 ║  their, confused for a bit, and proceeded to question him "Ummm, Rebel,    ║
 ║  what the fuck is a ninja turtle doing in your arms?"  He looked at me     ║
 ║  and replied "Um, it's my turtle."  I, still confused, lay there           ║
 ║  wondering what the reason for this awkwardness could be.  A 17-year old   ║
 ║  guy sleeping with a stuffed turtle.  Seemed kinda twisted to me.  So      ║
 ║  after much pondering, I have come to a conclusion as to what the problem  ║
 ║  could be.                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      He's still chickless and desperate.  Maybe he thought it would work   ║
 ║  if he replaced the girls with dolls.  I'm running out of options.  I've   ║
 ║  seen some rejects before, I've gotten them out of messes, but this, this  ║
 ║  is like trying to dig a hole to China.  He often reassures me that it     ║
 ║  won't be like this in College (just 2 months away!) and that he'll be     ║
 ║  better then, but I see no way for a guy to ask a girl out in College if   ║
 ║  you've never done it before.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      A couple of weeks ago I thought I saw the light at the end of this    ║
 ║  long tunnel.  Some girl asked our Rebel to a 50's dance.  Furthermore,    ║
 ║  it was a girl that he LIKED!  I began to frantically kiss the floor and   ║
 ║  sing halleluyah, but then common sense kicked in and reminded me that he  ║
 ║  didn't necessarily say he would go.  So of course I find out that this    ║
 ║  was his chance of a lifetime and he said no.  What an idiot.  And what's  ║
 ║  worse is that his excuse to me was that he was too busy that night, he    ║
 ║  had to work on RCN.  Judging by the amount of people that message         ║
 ║  RblChickn "have you scored yet?" upon his logging on to IRC, I feel       ║
 ║  comfortable saying that the scene as a whole wouldn't mind RCN a day      ║
 ║  late if the Chicken were to go out on a date.  So now I've completely     ║
 ║  given up on him.  I couldn't get him to go out with a chick when he had   ║
 ║  to be the one to ask, I couldn't when I had to be the one to ask, and I   ║
 ║  can't even when the girl asks.  Rebel, good luck in college, you'll sure  ║
 ║  be needing it ;-).                                                        ║
