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

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


DOSee is a slimmed down, 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. It is the same platform that's running emulation on the Internet Archive.

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

DOSee uses BrowserFS ZipFS and ZipFS Extras to simulate zip file archives as hard disks within EM-DOSBox.

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

 ║      Welcome to Reality Check Network, your #1 Warez E-mag!  And so we'd   ║
 ║  like to stay!  To meet further reader demand, the staff has decided that  ║
 ║  RCN will now be released on a biweekly schedule.  There won't be any      ║
 ║  less material found in each issue, the material will just be of even      ║
 ║  higher quality!  RCN will be released every other Sunday.  We believe     ║
 ║  that by giving ourselves more time between the release of each issue, we  ║
 ║  will be able to release a better RCN, and at the same time, the extra     ║
 ║  time will help create a more positive and less hectic work environment    ║
 ║  for the RCN Staff.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Again, you can always find Reality Check Network available on the     ║
 ║  WWW at HTTP://WWW.RCN.ORG/INDEX.HTML, as well as find some of our         ║
 ║  previous competition (though, unfortunately, none exists at the moment)   ║
 ║  and perhaps compare and contrast.  And as a final note, a little word     ║
 ║  about etiquette, purposefully placed at the END of the introduction.  I   ║
 ║  don't mind if you don't want to read an entire article or interview, and  ║
 ║  decide you've had enough in the middle, but if you're going to contact    ║
 ║  us with a complaint, make sure you HAVE read the entire text before       ║
 ║  doing so.  It doesn't look too impressive when you complain about         ║
 ║  something and our response to your complaint was in the body of the text  ║
 ║  all the while, but you were too lazy to find it.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As always, thanks for reading RCN, and don't hesitate to contact us!  ║

 ║  Dear RCN,                                                                 ║

 ║      As a former member of FBI, I would like to respond not only to the    ║
 ║  text file sent out by JDa, but also your dislike of Reflux and FBI.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      For a short period during '95, I was an in-house courier for FBI.  I  ║
 ║  would distribute stuff, mostly though site couriering, when one day I     ║
 ║  noticed them releasing Bermuda Syndrome.  I had heard it was a really     ║
 ║  good game, even though it was big, so I tried it, and I definitely don't  ║
 ║  remember it being in Russian as Reflux claims.  FBI was a group           ║
 ║  dedicated to putting out good releases, not untranslated or non-working   ║
 ║  ones.  That was a great program, and I got much joy from letting others   ║
 ║  try it out, to see if they want to buy it, since I still feel that's the  ║
 ║  only right thing to do.  Remember, if everyone got the stuff for free,    ║
 ║  there wouldn't be any more of it!                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Even though I had long since left the group, I was appauled to find   ║
 ║  out that Reflux duped the release, but to make it worse, they were        ║
 ║  releasing it over half a year later!  Talk about sloppy.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In rebuttal to Reflux's claim that it was more than 50 disks so it    ║
 ║  shouldn't count as a real release, your release is too!  Bermuda          ║
 ║  Syndrome isn't much fun to play without all the addons, and if you add    ║
 ║  those onto the 50 disk total of Bermuda Syndrome, it's way over 60        ║
 ║  disks.                                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Reflux claims that it's a new version.  If so, WHY NOT RELEASE A      ║
 ║  FUCKIN PATCH??  Because they're sloppy and led by that pussy Tklp (which  ║
 ║  stands for Tiny-Kocked-Little-Prick).                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I used to have respect for Tklp and his group, despite their major    ║
 ║  screw up with Quake, but after their duping and then DENYING the          ║
 ║  previous release's credibility, I have lost all faith in them.  I now     ║
 ║  agree with all of Rebel Chicken's criticism of ROR and Reflux, it is all  ║
 ║  viable.  This last mistake should prove it.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As for most people's treatment of FBI, I may no longer be a member,   ║
 ║  but I still have respect for them.  They weren't a tiny little group      ║
 ║  that barely got to the US, they were great.  I have now moved on to       ║
 ║  bigger and better things, as I am now a happy member of PTA, and active   ║
 ║  as ever.  But I have not forgotten my roots as so many people have.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      All I've heard this week from everyone I've talked to is either I     ║
 ║  can't connect to the sites, or "Why do I have ratios?"  So let's clear a  ║
 ║  few things up from the get go.  We send you all the info, if it is        ║
 ║  incorrect or you have trouble, simply email myself or Pitbull and we'll   ║
 ║  take care of it.  It's as simple as that.  ISPs unfortunatly change       ║
 ║  their IPs and subsequently your IPs occasionally.  Make sure you have     ║
 ║  supplied us your correct IP.  Try using NS Lookup to verify your IP.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now, as to ratios on the sites.  Unless you are a senior member, you  ║
 ║  have ratios.  Period, end of sentence.  Our sites are not huge            ║
 ║  stockpiles for everyone to plunder to be able to fill all the boards you  ║
 ║  call.  Sites operate the same way boards do.  They have ratios, time      ║
 ║  limits, and all the other goodies.  We have done our best to make sure    ║
 ║  sites have top 10 list and other ammenities to make them more appealing   ║
 ║  to our ppl to upload.  But no matter what we do, people just want to      ║
 ║  leech and leech and never upload.                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now, the senior members are busy with the group, the day to day       ║
 ║  workings that few realize or understand.  It really makes me sick that    ║
 ║  there are few traders anymore.  It's time to go back to old school and    ║
 ║  learn how to trade.  If your aspirations are to be a courier all your     ║
 ║  life, then join fATE.  Razor is the best and I expect the best.  Traders  ║
 ║  trade files.  They do not leech from a site and then upload all those     ║
 ║  leeched files to a board.  The one way flow hardly benefits the group.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I know on some sites, as with boards, it's hard to find files to      ║
 ║  upload.  Well guess what?  Life's hard, deal with it.  If you need help   ║
 ║  to learn how to become a trader, talk to some of the old school traders,  ║
 ║  like Third Son, Pharaoh, Mr. Skill, etc etc.  Now from time to time, we   ║
 ║  make exceptions and rewards for certain users, but don't expect that all  ║
 ║  the time.  It's time to grow up and face the real world.  And for anyone  ║
 ║  else that wants to whine know this, I have ratios on all the sites and    ║
 ║  you know how often I have free time to send files around.                 ║

 ║  Dear RCN,                                                                 ║

 ║      First off I would like to congradulate you on your fine Diskmag.  I   ║
 ║  get the latest issue off Illegal Injections BBS here in 613 practically   ║
 ║  the minute it is out.  I am not sure how the sysop does it, whether it    ║
 ║  is upload by an RCN official or he gets it off IRC?                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Anyway what I am here to say regards women being Piraters.  It is a   ║
 ║  well known that if a girl has a girlish NICK then she will be flamed for  ║
 ║  trying to do a man's job, that is shit.  It doesn't take much effort or   ║
 ║  so called "man power," to upload and download.  I have been doing this    ║
 ║  since I first got my HAYES 2400 smartmodem.  Now I have an ISDN line and  ║
 ║  a 33.6 USR Courier modem for using BBSs with.  What I want to tell you    ║
 ║  and everyone reading this is that it is not a male only dominated scene.  ║
 ║  If you look around you will see that there are many females running it    ║
 ║  as well.  For instance there is Acoustic Blast who is the SysOp of        ║
 ║  Damned Inferno, a good warez board.  There are many more that you will    ║
 ║  find out about if they ever feel that they can come out of hiding under   ║
 ║  the big M instead of being proud under the bigger F!                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Most female piraters have to pretend to be male just to get into the  ║
 ║  scene.  Just like when I started, I didn't know this and I got stuck on   ║
 ║  every lamer list there is, and all just because I was a girl.  Now I use  ║
 ║  a male sounding alias and I do the pretending, so far no one has known    ║
 ║  and I am doing better then ever.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Anyway, that is about all I have to say other than that the guys      ║
 ║  that think they run the scene, they should think twice!!                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      You're going to be shocked when you read this reply.  Don't take it   ║
 ║  personally, it is not directed at you.  It's just a small bit about       ║
 ║  women that complain about their position in society and female rights.    ║
 ║  Rebel Chicken and I thought of this when we were at Safeway one day.      ║
 ║  I've been wanting to publish it for a while now, and it has absolutely    ║
 ║  nothing to do with warez, but it's something I've got to say and get      ║
 ║  e-mail back about, so people, don't hold back, I want to start a riot     ║
 ║  here, write me and tell me what you think of my little schpiel here.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Once upon a time Rebel Chicken and I walked into a Safeway (it's a    ║
 ║  supermarket in the USA) to get something to eat while on an RCN break.    ║
 ║  We walked past the magazines, they were on the way to the cashier, when   ║
 ║  Rebel Chicken stopped and exclaimed "HUBBA HUBBA!!!"  I turned around     ║
 ║  and saw him checking out this babe on the front of some magazine.         ║
 ║  "Ehhhhhhh ---- heeeeeeeeeellllo!!"  I shouted back.  So we were checking  ║
 ║  out the women on the front of magazines and then Rebel Chicken noticed    ║
 ║  something (just when you thought he was actually looking at the women).   ║
 ║  He asked me "Did you notice how every magazine cover with a woman         ║
 ║  pictured on it has something about sex?"  Surely enough, he was right.    ║
 ║  We looked through about 25 magazines, and found only two that didn't.     ║
 ║  One issue of "Seventeen" and the other I don't remember.  Sorry guys, we  ║
 ║  didn't look at computer magazines.                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So this is the conclusion I draw from all this.  Women have no right  ║
 ║  in hell to complain about being treated like sex toys.  I'll tell you     ║
 ║  right now, I definitely would NOT have minded treating those women as     ║
 ║  sex toys heheheh but there's no way they can try to tell me that they're  ║
 ║  just showing off beauty with no sexual connotation implied.  Before       ║
 ║  women can complain about being treated like objects and having a lower    ║
 ║  place in society, they need to think twice about their actions.  I don't  ║
 ║  mind the fact that beautiful women pose for magazines, but when every     ║
 ║  magazine with them says something like "20 tips to make your sex life     ║
 ║  better," "A quiz to see if you really know your way around your bed,"     ║
 ║  "5 women reveal the SEXXXIEST summer lingerie," "The moves the men        ║
 ║  really like," or "Sex tips for the new year, happy 1996!" it degrades     ║
 ║  the women's level in society.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Right about now all the women's rights groups are telling me "I see   ║
 ║  nothing wrong with women doing this.  It shows that they feel more        ║
 ║  comfortable with issues about sex."  But so what?  Maybe the men don't.   ║
 ║  I don't know, I've never sexually molested a woman, and don't             ║
 ║  particularly plan on it, but others have, and I don't doubt that          ║
 ║  magazine covers such as the ones I'm speaking of had some part in it.     ║
 ║  So food for thought, and note that I'm not justifying Mike Tyson here,    ║
 ║  he's got the smallest knowledge : size of brain ratio I've ever seen.     ║
 ║  Would he really have patted that babe on her butt if she weren't wearing  ║
 ║  something so revealing?  When you invite people to a party, you can't     ║
 ║  expect to kick them out when they show up at your door, and when you      ║
 ║  invite trouble, you can't expect to kick its hand off your ass.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      AAAAAND right about now the whole scene thinks I'm insane.  Oh well.  ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      How hard is it to find a god release these days?  That is a good      ║
 ║  question when you really think about it.  When BBSing and trading files   ║
 ║  how many files that you download do you actually use?  When looking at    ║
 ║  files these days they seem really pathetic.  For instance, why would      ║
 ║  someone want a personal heatlth manger or something that is very boring.  ║
 ║  3D Creative caladers and other lame releases I have seen passed around    ║
 ║  and when checking my BBS stats it seems that these files are never        ║
 ║  downloaded while Duke Nukem 3D on my board was downloaded 75 times!!!     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I think that release groups should take more time and release         ║
 ║  quality things that a majority of people would like instead of wasting    ║
 ║  time cracking and passing around total junk.  For instance, I must have   ║
 ║  traded and seen over 5-7 gigs of files and how many of those files did I  ║
 ║  actually use?  Hardly any to be perfectly honest, in my time in the       ║
 ║  scene I might have used about 500 megs of all the things releases and a   ║
 ║  lot of the things that I used were the older files which I had to         ║
 ║  request because most of the newer things out there aren`t even that       ║
 ║  great to begin with.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I guess it is not the release group's fault if the prgrammers these   ║
 ║  days are not making quality programs to crack but I do think they should  ║
 ║  have some pride and don't release "How to Type Faster Part 5" when they   ║
 ║  know people won't use it.                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The problem these days is people are just couriering for fun... for   ║
 ║  something to do and they will trade almost everything and not even use    ║
 ║  it so release groups can get away with releasing junk because they know   ║
 ║  people will trade it no matter what it is.  So release groups that read   ║
 ║  this letter and think about the quality of your releases lately and ohh   ║
 ║  yea try to make sure they work to.                                        ║

 ║      Couriers read this and remember next time you courier "How to Cook"   ║
 ║  maybe if you refused to trade some lame releases like that maybe the      ║
 ║  groups will stop releasing them!                                          ║

 ║      Hey guys, just wanted to respond to some of the editorials from RCN   ║
 ║  22.  To address the DCC courier's plea for DCC subdivisions in RiSC and   ║
 ║  Everlast, I must say it ain't gunna happen.  Although I'm in neither of   ║
 ║  these groups I can tell you, DCC Couriering isn't regarded as a           ║
 ║  prestigious way of moving files around.  Let me explain...    The elites  ║
 ║  of the scene pride themselves on doing something better than someone      ║
 ║  esle.  Which in fact is the definition of Elite.  Now with DCC            ║
 ║  couriering it is difficult, if at all possible to know who offered the    ║
 ║  release first.  How ever with boards and sites, only the fastest of the   ║
 ║  fast will upload a release.  In this respect DCC couriering is a          ║
 ║  non-competitive way of couriering, which is not regarded as much to the   ║
 ║  elites of the scene.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      To respond to the disk size limit on games/utils.  Let me say there   ║
 ║  is nothing in the world more fun to a net monkey like me, then racing a   ║
 ║  50-60 disker all around the sites and causing a bit of havok to the       ║
 ║  people trying to upload.  Groups will continue to release big 50 disk     ║
 ║  crap to satisfy the couriers util someone decides to bring back the nuke  ║
 ║  x10.  My suggestion for the few people that do have nuke access, if it's  ║
 ║  lame nuke it, if it's hella old and people are still uploading it nuke    ║
 ║  it x1000 or so.  Better yet nuke that trader's account.                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The reason dupes and fakes get spread so widely is that in ftp        ║
 ║  trading any hestitation even if only for a split second can cost you the  ║
 ║  weektop.  The people that should be the most prosecuted/nuked should be   ║
 ║  the people that bring these fakes/dupes to the net.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Also I'd also like to mention that I'm seeing a trend here, where     ║
 ║  some couriers rely exclusively on pre-releases for all their upload       ║
 ║  credits.  However easy and/or effective this maybe, it is not the true    ║
 ║  showing of skill, and in my opinion people that should not be recognized  ║
 ║  as being couriers, but rather distributors for the release group they     ║
 ║  are in.                                                                   ║

 ║      Some readers probably won't know what the hell I just devulged, but   ║
 ║  that's ok.  Information is power, arrogance and ignorance go hand in      ║

 ║  think he is a 15 year old that thinks that telling everybody that he is   ║

 ║  pimples on his face, or if he is on drugs.  As long as he is supplying    ║
 ║  ME and the rest of the scene games, I'm happy, and I'll thank him for     ║
 ║  that.                                                                     ║

 ║      I don't hate tKLP.  Re-read what I wrote.  Re-read the whole jig      ║
 ║  about Reflux.  When reflux came about, I wished them the best of luck,    ║
 ║  hoping that they would not repeat their past flaws and congratulating     ║
 ║  them on the second chance they have received.  I even applauded Manic     ║
 ║  for his letter of apology published just after Reflux released a dupe     ║
 ║  (By the way I'm glad they did, the game is a great one and I like it, I   ║
 ║  could have never found the FBI version from November 1995, so this dupe   ║
 ║  helped me and I'm sure many others).  The ONLY person I was mad at was    ║
 ║  JdA.  Why?  Because he has no balls to admit a mistake.  He is the type   ║
 ║  of person that should be in a group like COPS.  Release shareware and     ║
 ║  say it was warez.  I mean they duped, but who the hell cares?!            ║

 ║      Oh, and he didn't approach me with a letter.  If he would have done   ║
 ║  that, he would have gotten it 10 times worse.  He approached the scene    ║
 ║  with that letter.  I get a lot of stupid mail in my mailbox, from a lot   ║
 ║  of stupid people.  Some of it even gets published!  I have the ability    ║
 ║  to delete it and laugh or publish it.  However JdA released that letter   ║
 ║  to the scene.  I had no power over what would happen to it.  I couldn't   ║
 ║  "not publish" it.  And do you know WHY he published it to the scene       ║
 ║  independently and didn't submit it to RCN?  Because he has no balls and   ║
 ║  didn't want to see the answer.  Too bad he saw it anyway.                 ║

 ║      Wassup Everyone!  This is just a little something I'd like to say     ║
 ║  about the interview done on AOD (Angel of Death) about LGN (Legion) and   ║
 ║  how they kicked out AcidPlain.                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Everything that AOD had said was true.  I was in the group for about  ║
 ║  two days.  If many of you don't remember, I was the one who constructed   ║
 ║  the group's first diz.  I was approached by a senior (I think he was at   ║
 ║  the time) of the group, Samuraion.  He said that if I did a .DIZ for the  ║
 ║  group, I'd become a member and have access to all their sites.  I wasn't  ║
 ║  all that excited, but it would have been a good chance to get my art      ║
 ║  skills up to par.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So I went to another window, loaded up my ansi editor, and began to   ║
 ║  work on the diz.  Five minutes had passed and I had finished the diz.  I  ║
 ║  sent it over to Samuraion and he told me he liked it.  He gave me access  ║
 ║  to their channel, and told me that I would be added to the INFO as a      ║
 ║  member, and that I would soon have access to their site(s).  I was a      ║
 ║  little excited, thinking that this group would have a lot of success,     ║
 ║  and that I was a part of it (after all, without a diz, they wouldn't get  ║
 ║  far).  So I was given access, and soon became friends with a few people   ║
 ║  in the channel.                                                           ║

 ║      All was going good.  I was couriering their releases as soon as they  ║
 ║  were being released.  I was doing the job that their couriers should      ║
 ║  have been doing.  I was grabbing their releases off a member's shell      ║
 ║  account, and sending them all around my a/c, and to other sites which I   ║
 ║  wish to keep anonymous.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I went into the channel a couple of days after the last release, and  ║
 ║  soon noticed after 5 minutes that I still had not been opped.  So I       ║
 ║  waited figuring I was lagged.  I waited, and waited, but still no +o.     ║
 ║  So I msged Acidplain, and he said he would go check the nfo file to see   ║
 ║  if I was in the group.  Turns out I wasn't in the latest nfo file, so he  ║
 ║  had no proof.  I told him that I was the one who did the DIZ for them,    ║
 ║  but still no ops.  I waited for Samuraion to come into the channel.  He   ║
 ║  came in about an hour after I first joined.  I told him that my ops had   ║
 ║  been taken away and that I was not in the NFO file.  He told me he added  ║
 ║  me, and said that he would do it again.  He sent me a copy of the latest  ║
 ║  one which had my name in it, and I kept it on my HD.  I joined the        ║
 ║  channel the next day, and to my surprise (yeah right), I was not given    ║
 ║  the ops.  I was added to the bot, and then got my ops back.  I was        ║
 ║  disconnected due to my computer freezing, and then connected back to IRC  ║
 ║  30 minsutes after.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I joined the channel again, and once again, no ops.  I was mad at     ║
 ║  this time, and so I sent a public message out stating that someone was    ║
 ║  removing my name out of the BOTS' list and that that was the reason for   ║
 ║  me not having my ops.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Samuraion joined the channel again, and he told me that he would      ║
 ║  once again add me to the bot.  I waited, and then had ops again.  I was   ║
 ║  then -o'ed and was wondering why.  I messaged Acidplain, and he said he   ║
 ║  didn't need me any longer because they had received a new diz and didn't  ║
 ║  want mine anymore.  I was fucking pissed (excuse the language).  So I     ║
 ║  left the channel, and msged X-Factor, and told him that Acidplain was     ║
 ║  asshole, and explained why I had called him that.  I got no reply, but    ║
 ║  when I joined channel #Legion, I was kicked out of the channel by none    ║
 ║  other than Acidplain.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I figured that whatever information I was giving to other members of  ║
 ║  the group, was being leaked out to Acidplain, so I said "Fuck This" and   ║
 ║  left the channel, never to return again.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So to all wondering if that interview contained some false            ║
 ║  information, none did whatsoever, whatever was said about Acidplain is    ║
 ║  true.  And I regret ever doing any work for that guy.  All respects go    ║
 ║  out to Samuraion for giving me a chance, and to X-Factor for being there  ║
 ║  when I needed help!                                                       ║

 ║  Dear RCN,                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      First I'd like to say that your mag is the best.  Being a coder       ║
 ║  myself, I find that Xenon's code is really good (NO, I won't request      ║
 ║  code as I don't need it).  Well anyway, I write in response to Bass       ║
 ║  Extream in Issue #21.  He said that in his area there are only 5 boards   ║
 ║  left.  He doesn't know how LUCKY he is.  In my area (514, real sucky      ║
 ║  since the RCMP busted most boards a year ago) there are new boards        ║
 ║  popping up every day.  Normally, this would be a good thing, since more   ║
 ║  boards means more places to call besides the Internet, but it is not.     ║
 ║  Unfortunately, most of these boards are run by little 14 year-old         ║
 ║  kiddies who don't know shit about modems or even computers.  They run     ║
 ║  their little board on Renegade, call everyone who doesn't run on          ║
 ║  Renegade lame (yeah, right, "PCB rules but you can't config it" they      ║
 ║  say.  HA!) and such.  They are litterally killing the board scene here.   ║
 ║  You don't want to know how many groups have started and died in the last  ║
 ║  month.  Here, since most of the stuff is in french, the kiddies go        ║
 ║  around saying "Vachier mon criss, tu vaux pas de la marde pis m'a te      ║
 ║  tuer" (means go to hell, you aren't worth shit and I'm gonna kill ya...)  ║
 ║  You see what I mean?                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now I don't say everyone is like that (you have an affiliate in my    ║
 ║  area, Area 51, I know the board and I talked to the Sysop a couple        ║
 ║  times) and some are cool.  But another problem around here is message     ║
 ║  networks.  There are at LEAST 20 of them, most real shitty with kiddoes   ║
 ║  on them who are learning to type.  So what's to do?  Most people don't    ║
 ║  even want to turn to the Internet here because they say it costs too      ║
 ║  much (my shell connection is 30$/month with 100 hours, not TOO bad but    ║
 ║  still I'd prefer if I didn't have my 4 megs quota).  This gets            ║
 ║  overcrowded boards, kiddoes (don't want to call them lamers since not     ║
 ║  all of them really are) who run them and who are saying "I want warez!    ║
 ║  I want messages!  I want the perfect board but I can't configure it!      ║
 ║  Mommmmy!"  I ran a board 2 years ago, now I turned to PCB and am still    ║
 ║  modding it, making my own PPEs and such, while little kiddoes are         ║
 ║  shouting to me that I'm a lamer.  Come on...                              ║

 ║      "I mean, who is the thief here?  Us or them?  They charge $50 for a   ║
 ║  piece of plastic and some magnetic tape, and I AM THE CRIMINAL for        ║
 ║  getting it for free?"                                                     ║

 ║      Yes, my friend, you ARE the criminal.  Obviously he doesn't know how  ║
 ║  hard coding can be.  I'm sure he's unaware that it took iD YEARS to make  ║
 ║  quake the game it is and they should be rewarded.  This is why Mr. Law    ║
 ║  Making Guys have tried to protect these programmers from people like us.  ║
 ║  Later on, Da Phreak states:                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      "I mean, there is a chance <1 in 1 000 000 000> that I could          ║
 ║  randomly write binary that would replicate this last scene from a well    ║

 ║      (Let's assume 'this last scene from a well known 3D game' is 200k):   ║

 ║      This letter is partly in response to Ermac's letter in RCN #21 about  ║
 ║  the benefits and popularity of IRC Couriering, and partly my opinions     ║
 ║  and other feelings about IRC Couriering.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      IRC couriering, in my opinion at least, may show which files are the  ║
 ║  more popular ones, but with BBS trading (I don't do FTP trading), I know  ║
 ║  that you can find more online about the file you are going to download,   ║
 ║  as well as have a more reliable and faster connection to get the file     ║
 ║  from.  Often, when leeching off a DCC bot on IRC, you have to wait for a  ║
 ║  slot to become available, and when that does, how are you to know the     ║
 ║  bot won't drop connection while sending you the file.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I know that when I BBS trade I can upload or download simulateously   ║
 ║  while knowing that I can get a connection on most multinode boards        ║
 ║  whenever I want, and know that the board is stable and won't disconnect   ║
 ║  in the middle of my transfer.  With IRC couriering also, you may be       ║
 ║  getting decent rates thru a t1 or t3 on your provider from the bot, but   ║
 ║  then, after it reaches your hd, you have to sit and wait while            ║
 ║  downloading it off your providers drive.  Now, this can be hasslesome,    ║
 ║  and I do know that many will go through this trouble just to get an 0     ║
 ║  day release, but it's not THAT beneficial timewise.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now, I don't want to sound like guys who setup DCC bots on IRC are    ║
 ║  lame, or stupid, I think that those who have bots steady going 24/7       ║
 ║  offering the latest files in any offer channel are very taleneted and     ║
 ║  should be commended.  I personally think though, that IRC Courering       ║
 ║  leaves the trading scene too simple.  I enjoy trading locally, and on     ║
 ║  occasional 800/888s, and I only use DCCs to get mags and small files      ║
 ║  (under 200k).  I enjoy the competition that trading gets on boards        ║
 ║  trying to beat other guys who have the same files.  IRC trading gievs     ║
 ║  people the "no ratio" advantage of taking files off IRC returning         ║
 ║  nothing, and then becoming well known.  I hope to start telnet trading    ║
 ║  soon, but right now I'm rebuilding my board from a hard drive crash, and  ║
 ║  don't have much time on my hands between that and work, so BBS trading    ║
 ║  is all I can do.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Finally, I'd like to address Ermac's saying that groups like          ║
 ║  Everlast and RiSC should get dcc channels and offer bots.  I personally   ║
 ║  would like to commend Everlast and RiSC and all other groups that only    ║
 ║  trade where the REAL competition is, on boards and sites.  Anyone can     ║
 ║  sit on IRC for a few hours a day offering some new files they DCCed from  ║
 ║  someone else, but it takes                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      someone who is fairly talented to trade the fast files on the         ║
 ║  fastest boards and sites in the world.  Again, I don't think all DCC      ║
 ║  guys are bad, fATE did a good thing creating #fATEfiles, but it got way   ║
 ║  to popular and blown out of proprtion.  I have a lot of friends in fATE   ║
 ║  or who used to be in fATE, and have respect for the group itself.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In my area, I'm glad to see trading picking up because of IRC, but    ║
 ║  many people ask me why I don't just move my board to real fast, and       ║
 ║  leech off IRC all day.  The reason is, it's too easy.  Again, no          ║
 ║  competition and no ratios.  That's why sites and boards gain the          ║
 ║  importance they do.  Most TRUE traders get the files off the whq's or     ║
 ║  group affiliated sites, and spread from there.  IRC trading has been      ║
 ║  given too much importance in the scene.  IRC should be left as group      ║
 ║  channels to have group information publicly available, and in some        ║
 ║  cases, just a meeting place between fellow members to talk.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      It is always unfortunate to see a good establishment within the       ║
 ║  scene fall apart, and many are saying that Amnesia's future will not be   ║
 ║  much different from that of Malice, and thus, the scene assumes that      ║
 ║  Amnesia's peak has passed.  Those who curse Amensia predict that it will  ║
 ║  not last more than a few weeks after this recent "incident."  The         ║
 ║  incident to which I refer to took place a few days ago, and the incident  ║
 ║  describes Egoistic Fate's departure from Amnesia.  Egoistic Fate is the   ║
 ║  sysop of Malevolence, one of the world's fastest boards, if not the       ║
 ║  fastest.  Malevolence was the WHQ for Amnesia, and thus, Malevolence      ║
 ║  helped bring Amnesia much needed support from the BBS scene.  However,    ║
 ║  with Egoistic Fate's departure, two other senior traders, Erupt and       ║
 ║  Nytemyst, also quit Amnesia.                                              ║

 ║      With senior members and HQs leaving left and right, the whole scene   ║
 ║  is saying that Amnesia's fall is near.  Will Amnesia remain a dominant    ║
 ║  courier force?  Is Amnesia REALLY doomed to fall?  To shed more light on  ║
 ║  the situation, RCN has granted them two interviews...                     ║

 ║ █RCN█: Since you are the Amnesia BBS coordinator and the main force        ║
 ║        behind the Amnesia BBS team, you would know more about this than    ║
 ║        anyone.  How has Egoistic Fate's departure from Amnesia hurt the    ║
 ║        group?  After all, he ran the Amnesia WHQ, Malevolence, which       ║
 ║        happens to be one of the fastest boards in the world, if not THE    ║
 ║        fastest.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: First off, Egoistic Fate's departure did not hurt Amnesia that      ║
 ║        much.  He told me he wanted to go RiSC about a week ago, I talked   ║
 ║        him out of it but I realized at that point that he was not loyal    ║
 ║        and only cared for his personal glory or something.  After hearing  ║
 ║        of this, we were already well on our way getting/looking for        ║
 ║        another WHQ anyway.                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: "Egoistic Fate's departure did not hurt Amnesia much," how could    ║
 ║        that be true?  When Egoistic Fate left Amnesia, he didn't leave by  ║
 ║        himself, he also took with him Erupt and Nytemyst, two of           ║
 ║        Amnesia's best couriers.                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: As far as Erupt and Nytemyst leaving, they are good friends of      ║
 ║        mine and I was a little upset that they did leave but I knew that   ║
 ║        their deparuter was coming too.  But let's face it, couriers can    ║
 ║        be replaced with a little time and effort, so the loss is not a     ║
 ║        great one.  The loss of the frienship hurts more then anything in   ║
 ║        this case.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Did you know at all that Egoistic Fate, Erupt, and Nytemyst were    ║
 ║        all planning to join Everlast after their departure from Amnesia?   ║
 ║        And if their departure was not so significant, why was an           ║
 ║        emergency meeting called in channel #Amnesia immediately following  ║
 ║        their departure?                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: There was NO emergency meeting.  It was just to tell people what    ║
 ║        was going on so they know.  And no, I did not know they would       ║
 ║        choose to join Everlast.  It doesn't suprise me, but I did think    ║
 ║        that they would have chosen to join another courier group.  I       ║
 ║        thought that they might have gone independent because I was not     ║
 ║        aware that they had a liking for Everlast's leader, Mr. Skill, but  ║
 ║        I don't want to quote them at this point either.                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Which board is now the new Amnesia WHQ?                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: Well, Citadel Of Chaos is the new Amnesia WHQ.  It was a RiSC       ║
 ║        board but now it is an Amnesia board.  It has 8 nodes and its       ║
 ║        getting 2 telnets in a week and it's as fast if not faster then     ║
 ║        Malevolence.  You see, the problem with Marc's board was that       ║
 ║        Erupt and Nytemyst were the ONLY real uploaders there, so that to   ║
 ║        me is not an awesome bbs.  I liked it but I'm not concerned that    ║
 ║        this will affect us.  We are still business as usual in Amnesia.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: When did Citadel of Chaos become an Amensia board, and when did it  ║
 ║        leave RiSC?                                                         ║

 ║ █RCN█: As far as I know, isn't Citadel of Chaos located in Canada?  If     ║
 ║        so, is Amnesia switching its BBS efforts outside the US and toward  ║
 ║        Canada?                                                             ║

 ║        anal.                                                               ║

 ║ █RCN█: Are you aware of what Malevolence's position will be in Everlast?   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: Yes, Malevolence is now the Everlast Southern HQ or something.      ║
 ║        This should be interesting though.                                  ║

 ║ █RCN█: Southern HQ?  Why should this be interesting?  What more do you     ║
 ║        know about the situation?                                           ║

 ║ █AMN█: Well, Marc HATES Third Son and hated it when Amnesia tried to       ║
 ║        support The Rock.  So I can't wait to see how he handles himself    ║
 ║        with Everlast.  I take that back, he does not HATE Third Son, he    ║
 ║        just HATES The Rock, Third Son's board.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Isn't The Rock in the same area code as Malevolence?  Are they      ║
 ║        competing against each other?  Which courier group is The Rock      ║
 ║        affiliated with?                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: The Rock is th Everlast WHQ.  Now if this is not the stupidist      ║
 ║        thing you ever heard of, what is??                                  ║

 ║ █RCN█: Well, it's not really stupid, but it is kind of strange to have     ║
 ║        two Everlast HQs located in the same area code.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: Mr. Skill didn't need Malevolence, but for whatever reason, he had  ║
 ║        to have it.  I don't know what goes on in these people's heads,     ║
 ║        but well let me stop there.  I don't want to start flaming Mr.      ║
 ║        Skill or Everlast.  But whoever says Amnesia is going to die ONLY   ║
 ║        wishes it would because they were probably one of the ones that     ║
 ║        left or got kicked out of Amnesia at one point in time.  So you     ║
 ║        have to consider the source when you hear these things.  We are     ║
 ║        still on the TOP of the BBS scene.  And as far as Internet          ║
 ║        trading, I know our guys are really kicking some ass.  And look at  ║
 ║        this too, nobody else left Amnesia except for these three people.   ║
 ║        Life goes on, the scene has NO loyal people and that is just a      ║
 ║        fact of life.                                                       ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: Amnesia has been tagged with the image of a group going downhill.   ║
 ║        Most of this was done by people who are angry at Amnesia for some   ║
 ║        reason or another.  When MGD quit Amnesia, he didn't just quit and  ║
 ║        go to another group, he retired from the scene all together.  This  ║
 ║        should say something.  I personally don't think that Amnesia was    ║
 ║        the cause of it, but if he quit because Amnesia was going down      ║
 ║        hill, then why would he retire?  Why wouldn't he go to another      ║
 ║        trading group?  I don't think that Amnesia is a dead end at all.    ║
 ║        Many people have said that Amnesia is "going to die" and so they    ║
 ║        are leaving.  When these kind of rumors get spread, then people     ║
 ║        start leaving, and that in itself causes a group to be plagued      ║
 ║        with doom.  As for MGD, I think that there was a lot more involved  ║
 ║        than just that.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: MGD might not have gone to another courier group after he left      ║
 ║        Amnesia, but a lot of other Amnesia couriers are doing so right     ║
 ║        now.  Couriers are flooding out of Amnesia and joining RiSC.        ║
 ║        There are rumors that RiSC is planning to swallow up Amnesia piece  ║
 ║        by piece, and from the looks of it, it might seem to turn out to    ║
 ║        be happening even if RiSC did not plan it.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: Rumors are the main thing here.  I have heard of several Amnesia    ║
 ║        couriers who were going to RiSC.  After talking to them, I found    ║
 ║        out that most of them were not leaving, but just wanted to be       ║
 ║        heard.  Or perhaps the rumors were started by someone trying to     ║
 ║        take down Amnesia.  I have also heard about RiSC planning on        ║
 ║        swallowing up Amnesia.  I do not believe them.  Some couriers will  ║
 ║        leave Amnesia and go to other courier groups, but Amnesia will      ║
 ║        gain new couriers to replace them.  For instance, Vile and          ║
 ║        Revolver from RTS recently joined Amnesia.  With more additions to  ║
 ║        the trading team, Amnesia can and will replace anyone lost to       ║
 ║        RiSC.                                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: From what you're saying, it might sound like any courier is         ║
 ║        replaceable.  Like, if an Amnesia courier dropped dead, nobody      ║
 ║        would really care.  But if RiSC is planning to swallow up Amnesia,  ║
 ║        RiSC would be doing so by swallowing up Amnesia sites first since   ║
 ║        sites are NOT so easily replaceable.  I've been informed that you   ║
 ║        run a site for Amnesia, and for purposes of keeping that site       ║
 ║        anonymous, we shall refer to your site as The Donut Hole for the    ║
 ║        remainder of the interview.  Is it true that RiSC offered you a     ║
 ║        position in RiSC as a siteop?  Were they trying to swallow you out  ║
 ║        of Amnesia?  From the looks of it, you probably refused RiSC's      ║
 ║        invitation, and if so, why?                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: That is a good question.  I don't know if RiSC was trying to        ║
 ║        "swallow" Amnesias' sites when they offered my site, The Donut      ║
 ║        Hole, a position in RiSC.  RiSC couldn't care less about me, they   ║
 ║        just wanted the site.  That is the reason that I decided to stay    ║
 ║        with Amnesia.  When I was talking to a RiSC senior about the site   ║
 ║        coming to RiSC, he mentioned that my co-siteop would be coming      ║
 ║        with me.  Later I found out from two other reliable sources that    ║
 ║        they were planning on dumping my co-siteops as soon as I was in     ║
 ║        the door.  I did not like this, since the co-siteops on my site     ║
 ║        put in a lot of hard work and effort to make it what it was.  That  ║
 ║        is why I decided not to go with RiSC.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Who was that RiSC senior you were talking to?  And who were these   ║
 ║        two reliable resources?  Were your two informers RiSC members who   ║
 ║        could not stand to see you cheated?  You can call me psychic, but   ║
 ║        I have a strong feeling this RiSC senior who was planning to cheat  ║
 ║        you might be Eagle 1 since the other 2 out of the 3 RiSC seniors    ║
 ║        are not currently active.  Also, would one of your two informers    ║
 ║        be Lurch?  I was informed that Lurch was recently kicked out of     ║
 ║        RiSC for doing something wrong.  Perhaps he was kicked out of RiSC  ║
 ║        because he was informing you that you were about to be cheated?     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: Well, the senior that I was talking to was Darkside.  As for my     ║
 ║        other two reliable sources, I can't tell you who they were, as I    ║
 ║        gave my word that they would remain anonymous.  As for Lurch, I     ║
 ║        have no idea why he is no longer in RiSC, although I do know that   ║
 ║        it had nothing to do with me or my site.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Oh, dam, I guess I'm not psychic then.  Oh darn.                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: Heheheheee... you put 2 and 2 together and you got 4.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Also, I might not be a good judge for this, but from word of        ║
 ║        mouth, your site seems to be the only site left in Amnesia that's   ║
 ║        any good.  Without your site, people would say that Amnesia would   ║
 ║        REALLY turn to shit since Amnesia couriers would have no where to   ║
 ║        upload to.  From the looks of it, Amnesia might turn out to be a    ║
 ║        another dead Malice.  Are there any other good sites left in        ║
 ║        Amnesia worthy to be called a GOOD site?  After all, BBX, one of    ║
 ║        Amnesia's fastest sites recently left for RiSC.  You might turn     ║
 ║        out to be the only loyal Amnesia siteop.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: Well, BBX is a good site and losing it to RiSC did hurt, but        ║
 ║        Amnesia still has at least 5 to 6 good sites as well as a courier   ║
 ║        base for the couriers to trade off of.  Amnesia has rocked the      ║
 ║        European courier scene for a long time and will continue to do so,  ║
 ║        this should say something about their Internet power.  As for me    ║
 ║        being the only loyal siteop left, I doubt that.  Amnesia has quite  ║
 ║        a few loyal people onboard.                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: That's good to hear, nobody likes to see a strong organization die  ║
 ║        out.  A few weeks ago, another strong European courier group        ║
 ║        called Rapier unfortunately disbanded because Rom Racer, Rapier's   ║
 ║        leader who also happens to be a Razor 1911 coordinator, no longer   ║
 ║        had time to manage the group.  Many of Rapiers' top couriers moved  ║
 ║        over to Everlast, however, I have not received word that any good   ║
 ║        Rapier couriers moved over to Amnesia.  Did Rapier's death help     ║
 ║        Amnesia at all?                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █AMN█: I can't say if Rapier's death was good or bad for Amnesia.          ║
 ║        Whenever a group dies, it forces the members to move to another     ║
 ║        group.  Amnesia picked up Rainbow and Skuzzi from Rapier, and they  ║
 ║        have both worked out very well.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: I have heard rumors that you were kicked out of Razor 1911 for one  ║
 ║        reason or another, but no one would really talk about it.  How and  ║
 ║        why were you kicked out of Razor?                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █JST█: It was a big surprise to me, I was not notified of being kicked     ║
 ║        out of Razor even though I have been one of the longest remaining   ║
 ║        members to the team.  I just simply downloaded the latest release   ║
 ║        of 3 weeks ago, Front Page Sports Baseball, the big 56 disk non     ║
 ║        working game, and noticed myself erased off the razor.nfo file.     ║
 ║        Rumor has it I was kicked out of Razor after being considered       ║
 ║        worthless to the team.  I don't take that lightly, "HELLO SPEED     ║
 ║        RACER, WHO TAUGHT YOU HOW TO MAKE CARDS, AND SETUP CONFERENCES,     ║
 ║        WHO SUPPLIED YOU ME AND NOBODY ELSE!"                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How long were you a part of Razor?  Were you in any other games     ║
 ║        groups before you were a part of Razor?                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █JST█: I started as a member of The Firm, 6 years ago I believe.  I was a  ║
 ║        card supplier for Wilkins, an old school German guy!  One day, TSR  ║
 ║        (The Speed Racer) called me when he was simply a member of NEXUS    ║
 ║        asking me if I would join and supply him cards.  Cards were gotten  ║
 ║        differently back then, it was during the Killerette/Phonestud &     ║
 ║        Maximillion card supplying spree, TSR had no connections to         ║
 ║        getting cards.  I have been members of The Firm, CMS, Nexus,        ║
 ║        Tdu-Jam!, Hybrid, PWA, Scum, Phoenix, Tyranny, Raw Meggage, RiSC    ║
 ║        and probably a whole lot of smaller groups too.  Oh, and I was in   ║
 ║        DOD too.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Ever since Nexus merged into Razor, I have always sided with TSR,   ║
 ║        even when Razor was being taken over by TRC (The Renegade           ║
 ║        Chemist).  But I respect TRC much more than TSR, and my personal    ║
 ║        friend Randall Flagg, who taught me a lot about the scene!  I have  ║
 ║        no respect for TSR anymore.                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █JST█: According to Druidkin, the Razor Internet Coordinator, you were     ║
 ║        kicked out of Razor because you attempted to pull a "coup d'etat."  ║
 ║        He informed me that you tried to kick out the current Razor         ║
 ║        leaders, and with Tklp's help, you were planning to make yourself   ║
 ║        the new Razor leader, and Tklp a Razor senior.  Is that true?       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Druidkin is not a friend of mine, but he could only say what he     ║
 ║        knows.  I did consider taking over Razor but that was after being   ║
 ║        kicked out of the group!  And if I had the time to do it I would,   ║
 ║        it would be a success too!  I did consider kicking out 90% of the   ║
 ║        group and leaving maybe 10 members.  TSR did it, my turn sounded    ║
 ║        like a good idea.  The only person in the group who I respect is    ║
 ║        Pharaoh.  I needed some suppliers to help, and since my plans       ║
 ║        wouldn't be to attack Prestige, I wouldn't have considered to try   ║
 ║        and take Prestige suppliers.  Tklp, although immature, is a nice    ║
 ║        guy.  He's new to the scene and I usually hate newbies, but he is   ║
 ║        an exception.  Most of my contacts are retired, but Razor should    ║
 ║        be run as a small group, no more than 15 people, and no couriers,   ║
 ║        all members.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █JST█: But Druidkin said that you were kicked out BECAUSE you were trying  ║
 ║        to takeover Razor.  And you're saying that you tried to takeover    ║
 ║        BECAUSE you were kicked out.  Somebody is lying.                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Well, it wouldn't make sense to takeover a group while I'm still    ║
 ║        in right?  If that was the case, I would just lay back like I was,  ║
 ║        and wait until the smoke cleared.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █JST█: What are your current plans for yourself in the scene.  Have you    ║
 ║        joined any other games groups or perhaps have you started your own  ║
 ║        games group?                                                        ║

 ║ █RCN█: Well, I really wanted to take Razor and make it the group it used   ║
 ║        to be.  I even thought of returning the group to its rightful       ║
 ║        owners, TRC and Zeus, and let them do whatever they like with it.   ║
 ║        But unless I start busting my balls, I don't think I have enough    ║
 ║        time for this.  I'm planning on starting an evil f/x, esse 9970     ║
 ║        style group called YO!  It'll have nothing to do with warez, but    ║
 ║        all to do with the elites.  If you heard of evil or esse you know   ║
 ║        they release recorded prank calls to the scene.  Besides that, I    ║
 ║        consider myself retired from warez.  If I do join an already        ║
 ║        established group, it would be Prestige or Everlast (to hang with   ║
 ║        my boyz).                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: There are tons of new courier groups that pop up each week, and     ║
 ║        many of them don't live past that very same week.  However, every   ║
 ║        now and then, one of these new courier groups do make it up there   ║
 ║        with the older groups.  For example, I've seen that Core, your      ║
 ║        courier group, has been doing very well lately, and that your       ║
 ║        offer channel #Phatfiles is packed with offerers all the time, and  ║
 ║        some could say that your channel is now better than channel         ║
 ║        #M8leech which has been around for months, and that channel         ║
 ║        #Phatfiles will soon be more popular than channel #Exceed.  What    ║
 ║        has contributed to its success?                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █COR█: Well, we started out small trying to do the things we could.        ║
 ║        Offering in channel #M8leech and #Exceed talking about our channel  ║
 ║        and after doing that long enough, we got some attention.  So then   ║
 ║        we asked for other groups to join in and help us like NGT, GCD,     ║
 ║        and then WWW the people who ran the old channel #Leech.  We all     ║
 ║        merged into #Phatfiles and that's what has given us more offerers   ║
 ║        than other channels because of #Phatfiles is like a home to a       ║
 ║        couple of smaller courier groups.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: So channel #Phatfiles is not a product of Core?  I always see Core  ║
 ║        couriers offering in there, so I always assumed that the channel    ║
 ║        is run by Core.  If Core does not own channel #Phatfiles, then      ║
 ║        which courier group does own it, or are you saying that a bunch of  ║
 ║        smaller groups run it?  Even so, smaller groups look at the         ║
 ║        biggest of the small groups as their leader, so which courier       ║
 ║        group is the most dominant in channel #Phatfiles?                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █COR█: As it started of Palm who was running #M8leech for a while started  ║
 ║        out #Phatfiles and since he was in our group we joined and helped   ║
 ║        him.  So Core does run the channel and when Palm is out, I help     ║
 ║        run it.                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I've heard rumors that inside Core, there's a new Core IRC Team     ║
 ║        concept that is being organized as we speak that is meant to        ║
 ║        revolutionize the scene.  I've not been told of the details of      ║
 ║        this "Core IRC Team," but from what I know so far, it seems to be   ║
 ║        pretty interesting.  Are the rumors true, is there such a Core IRC  ║
 ║        Team on the drawing boards?                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █COR█: As of now, the Core IRC Team is still in the works.  You can see    ║
 ║        it sometimes in #Phatfiles but not the way we want it.  My idea is  ║
 ║        to get all of our IRC couriers together and have certain teams      ║
 ║        offer different kinds of warez.  Like team 1 will offer 0 day and   ║
 ║        team 2 will take graphic programs.  And we want to have 5 to 10     ║
 ║        bots on 24/7 offering the latest and the greatest files.  And we    ║
 ║        want to become #1 on IRC and think we can achieve easily, if we     ║
 ║        work for it.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: But all of the other courier groups have such offering teams as     ║
 ║        well right?  How will Core be able to sustain 5 to 10 bots          ║
 ║        offering 24/7?  Is that 5 to 10 bots per team?  How many offerers   ║
 ║        make up one team?                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █COR█: As I have seen, this is a totally new conecept which will make      ║
 ║        exchanging files over IRC easier, at least through Core.  We are    ║
 ║        going for 5 to 10 on each team so there will be a lot of offerers.  ║
 ║        At first, we won't be full strength but once we achieve 5 to 10 on  ║
 ║        each team, we will definitely be #1 on the list.                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Your Core IRC Team concept would definitely be of help to the       ║
 ║        masses, but I'm sure that other courier groups will get jealous,    ║
 ║        and in the process, they'll start colliding the fuck out of your    ║
 ║        offerers.  Have you taken prevention methods to secure your bots,   ║
 ║        so they do offer 24/7 and not just 10 minutes after they're loaded  ║
 ║        up?                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █COR█: Thats where I come in.  I have been offering on IRC for a while     ║
 ║        and I'm going to make sure that the people who offer make there     ║
 ║        bots stable so they don't eof or excess flood.  As for colliding    ║
 ║        goes, I don't think anyone in the bigger groups would try to        ║
 ║        collide us just because they are jealous.  If this does come        ║
 ║        about, we will take measures to keep our bots up.  Maybe it'll      ║
 ║        just cause us to offer more!                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: A good offering group is still, only an offering group, and not a   ║
 ║        courier group.  A good courier group always has a good source of    ║
 ║        ftp sites where the offerers can leech off of.  Does Core have      ║
 ║        this resource in sites as well?                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █COR█: Well as sites go my other half, Edge, who is working on that as I   ║
 ║        work on IRC.  We are on a few large sites along with other large    ║
 ║        groups.  But as everyone knows, everyone can always use more good   ║
 ║        sites.  It's give and take, the more FTP sites we have the more we  ║
 ║        can offer on IRC.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║        Another would be because he was asking me too steal releases from   ║
 ║        other groups.  Prophet is a liar.  After I talked to Lost Soul      ║
 ║        about Prophet, I found out even more about how he tries ANYTHING    ║
 ║        to get a release.  But I got to say that what he tried to do with   ║

 ║ █SHP█: Correct.  He was messaging me on IRC every 5 minutes to say, "Did   ║

 ║        if I knew of any sites where he could find Gender Wars or Close     ║
 ║        Combat.                                                             ║

 ║ █RCN█: If he merely asked you if you knew if there were any sites with     ║
 ║        those games, how could you infer that he was going to ask you to    ║
 ║        steal them?  Did he actually ask you to steal them?                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █SHP█: Yes, he once asked, "Dude, get me Gender Wars and I can get it      ║
 ║        cracked and release it under Napalm."  What happened with Gender    ║
 ║        Wars was that he asked me for it, then somehow he found it on a     ║
 ║        Legion/Epic supplier drop site.  Actually, what he said about       ║
 ║        Gender Wars was, "Get the Epic guys to give it to you, then crack   ║
 ║        it, and we can release it under Napalm."                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What happened after he found it on the Legion/Epic supplier drop    ║
 ║        site?                                                               ║

 ║ █SHP█: I'm not sure about that, but what I heard was that he started       ║
 ║        uploading it to a site.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Were you a little surprised that the leader of Napalm, Prophet,     ║
 ║        would stoop so low as to ask you to steal releases for him?  Also,  ║
 ║        did you agree to steal for him?  If not, then why not?              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █SHP█: No, I didn't agree to stop any releases for him, Just because I     ║
 ║        didn't want to and I'm not the kind of guy to steal a release and   ║
 ║        give it to another group.  Plus, I was not suprised about him       ║
 ║        asking because before that, I had a long talk with Lost Soul about  ║
 ║        Prophet and he told me about all the shit that Prophet did to him   ║
 ║        too.                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How has this changed your view of Napalm, now that the whole scene  ║
 ║        knows that Prophet likes to play dirty?  Do you still respect       ║
 ║        Napalm as a games group?                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █SHP█: No.  I just don't respect Prophet, there is a lot of good people    ║
 ║        in Napalm that don't deserve a bum rap because of Prophet's         ║
 ║        actions.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: One bad apple spoils them all, perhaps prophet should be kicked     ║
 ║        out of Napalm, or perhaps the good members of Napalm should         ║
 ║        consider joining another games group?                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █SHP█: Well, Prophet is the President of the group.  It could be hard to   ║
 ║        kick him out of Napalm, but I know a lot of the people in Napalm    ║
 ║        don't want to leave to join other groups.                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Last week, after RCN printed a log file showing Prophet admitting   ║
 ║        to asking you to steal.  As a result of showing the scene what      ║
 ║        Prophet is really like, RCN received numerous threats from Napalm.  ║
 ║        Now that you are coming forward giving more proof that Prophet did  ║
 ║        what he did, and that Prophet does what he does to get releases,    ║
 ║        do you believe that he will also come up to you to threaten you     ║
 ║        also, in much the same way Napalm threatened RCN?                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █SHP█: Nope, he never said anything to me after I quit Napalm.  I told     ║
 ║        Lost Soul the night Prophet asked me to steal releases for him.  I  ║
 ║        believe I talked to Lost Soul about it 3 different times.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Why Lost Soul?  What did he say about the situation?  He was also   ║
 ║        a cracker that was approached by Prophet in the past right?         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █SHP█: Because me and Lost Soul have been friends for around a year now.   ║
 ║        He's a good friend and a great cracker.  He told me about his       ║
 ║        dealings with Prophet.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What hapepned between this other cracker Lost Soul, who also        ║
 ║        happens to be an ex-Napalm cracker right?  What were his dealings   ║
 ║        with Prophet?                                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █SHP█: Correct, if I rememeber correctly, there's is a log of Lost Soul    ║
 ║        talking with Prophet in RCN #21.  Prophet asked to Lost Soul to do  ║
 ║        a personal crack for him for the game AH-64D Longbow which later    ║
 ║        Prophet released under Napalm.  Prophet lied to Lost Soul saying    ║
 ║        that it was only for himself and that he would not release it.      ║
 ║        What did the guys from Napalm say to RCN?                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Some guys from Napalm told me not to print the stuff about Prophet  ║
 ║        and that I should keep it quiet.  I told them that when Prophet     ║
 ║        stops fucking around with other games groups that RCN would also    ║
 ║        stop informing the public about what he does.  Basically, I told    ║
 ║        them to fuck off.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █SHP█: Did they say they were going to kill you or something?              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: No, they just delivered a "warning" and told me to keep quiet with  ║
 ║        the facts.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █SHP█: Lame...                                                             ║

 ║      UPS is a couriering group that is based on AOL.  They get about 50%   ║
 ║  of the releases by quality groups like Razor, Hybrid, DOD and Napalm to   ║
 ║  thousands of people using AOL.  What is exceptional about this group is   ║
 ║  that there is no "I am the k-RaDDeSt here, BoW to mE!!" attidude so       ║
 ║  commonly found in AOL groups, and the releases that they send out are     ║
 ║  all working, and always clearly labeled with a NFO from the group that    ║
 ║  released the ware, and usually a NFO from the UPS member that actually    ║
 ║  TESTED the release before uploading it.  UPS is recognized on AOL to be   ║
 ║  the elite without a doubt.  They embody an AOL "legend" since they have   ║
 ║  been around on AOL much longer then any of their competitors.             ║

 ║ █RCN█: Can you describe the recent activity of UPS and some statistics on  ║

 ║ █UPS█: Sure can.  Well, we're hitting 2 gigs a week uploading and our      ║
 ║        MMing crew (UPSS) is getting it out very much on AOL.  So we're     ║
 ║        very busy.                                                          ║

 ║        to 30k a day, and by a day, I mean regular busy hours on AOL and    ║
 ║        that's thousand of files!                                           ║

 ║ █UPS█: Sure.  I love to listen to old skewlers talk on IRC.  We were a     ║
 ║        year old on July 4th.  Welp, basically, UPS really started a year   ║
 ║        and a half ago and it broke up after a few months because the guys  ║
 ║        lost interest and got busy in the real world and stuff, and then    ║
 ║        last year on July 4th, Nun, Deathwish, and WeX started it back up   ║
 ║        again with Phun, Trubl, and some of the other guys that I don't     ║
 ║        know.  Then, they started UPSS about six or seven months ago as a   ║
 ║        training corps.  They wanted to do ACCURATE fresh uploads and then  ║
 ║        MM the AOL.  So now here we are bigger and better.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Cool.  Can you tell me why UPS hung on for more than a year now     ║
 ║        whereas other groups on AOL form and break within a few weeks?      ║

 ║        GOOD, fast, and knowledgeable.  Our MMers are good, fast, and       ║
 ║        knowledgeable.  Well, most of us talk voice all the time, some, if  ║
 ║        not most of us, have met in the real world.  We communicate all     ║

 ║        We follow a very STRICT chain of command and we keep or try to      ║

 ║ █UPS█: No, we don't compete with any Internet based groups.  We're a       ║
 ║        different type of group.                                            ║

 ║ █UPS█: Well, we use FTP sites and our own private site.  We got Internet   ║
 ║        group people who courier to our sites after they do for their own   ║
 ║        groups.                                                             ║

 ║ █UPS█: I guess as far as AOL goes?  Nope, honestly we don't because UPSS   ║
 ║        is so kicking.  We're in every room all the time.  I don't know of  ║
 ║        any other group that has such a WELL organized MMing group like we  ║
 ║        do.  But I'm the President of UPSS, so I'm kinda prejudiced, ok?    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I understand.  What about Dogz?                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █UPS█: Dogz?  Hehe... well, a good way to judge which group is getting it  ║
 ║        out to the AOLers, is to get on some MMs and see what the MMers     ║
 ║        got in their boxes.  I do that all the time.  It's usually better   ║
 ║        than 50% UPS files.  Enough said.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You're right there.  UPS does have the majority of the mailz.  Do   ║
 ║        you have any affiliations with releasing groups such as Razor,      ║
 ║        DOD, Hybrid, etc?                                                   ║

 ║ █UPS█: We do not.  We have had in the past, but, like, the stigma of AOL   ║
 ║        and the fear of Internet groups has stopped releasing groups from   ║
 ║        letting us become official.                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║        interview said that due to your supposed release of QUAKE FINAL,    ║
 ║        you may be in some serious trouble.  What do you have to say about  ║

 ║ █ROR█: That iD can lick my balls and they can phear me.  They announced    ║
 ║        on Eyewitness News on CBS that I released it, and no one had said   ║
 ║        shit to me nor do they have any evidence of who I am, so fuck 'em.  ║

 ║ █RCN█: Now, there have been rumors about how the release of QUAKE was a    ║
 ║        fake and how it was only the BETA.  Would you mind clarifying this  ║
 ║        for all the readers?                                                ║

 ║ █ROR█: It's not a beta, however it's not the final.  It turned out to be   ║
 ║        the pre-release final, the only thing missing is modem play.  We    ║
 ║        apologize for anyone who is disapointed, although the feedback      ║
 ║        from the release has been 95% great...                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Yes.  It is a great game.  I haven't played it myself but I've      ║
 ║        seen it at a friends.  Anyways, there was a patch for the modem     ║
 ║        play released by THC.  Now would you say that this PATCH is the     ║
 ║        key that turns the PRE-RELEASE to the FINAL?                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ROR█: I really couldn't say, because who knows, iD might make a drastic   ║
 ║        change, but I doubt it.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: There is also some rumor going around that the FINAL DOOM released  ║
 ║        by Razor 1911 is the actual QUAKE final, do you have any comments   ║
 ║        on this issue?                                                      ║

 ║ █ROR█: Hahahaah!  Whoever said that is a complete dumbass, Final Doom is   ║
 ║        just something GT Interactive made, it's a bunch of new levels for  ║
 ║        DOOM 2 with a dumb new story line.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Would you say this is just another LAME release to keep a group     ║
 ║        alive?  If not, would you have released it if you had a chance?     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ROR█: No no, FINAL DOOM is a very awaited title, and yes I would have     ║
 ║        released it.  It's just that I think DOOM 2 has had it's time, and  ║
 ║        new WADS just don't entertain me.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I agree with you.  DOOM WADS are getting tiring and lame.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ROR█: Another issue I would like to talk to you about is about the        ║
 ║        information that was released in RCN about you.  Do you have        ║
 ║        anything to say about this?                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Not really, the only thing correct is my city and state.            ║
 ║        Everything else is total wack.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ROR█: So you are not afraid of being busted or of being flamed by scene   ║
 ║        members who dislike you?                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Nope.                                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ROR█: Well, I would just like to say GOOD LUCK in the future with ROR.    ║
 ║        I think it's a great team, and have always respected it and it's    ║
 ║        members.  Good Luck man!  Do you have any last words you would      ║
 ║        like to say to members?                                             ║

 ║ █RCN█: Well, I'd like to greet a lot of people, but I'm afraid if I do     ║
 ║        greet a bunch of people I might leave out some of my friends that   ║
 ║        didn't cross my mind and I don't want to hurt anyone.               ║

 ║      In the pirate's never ending battle with each other to supply and     ║
 ║  courier software, there is a common enemy.  In their end of the war,      ║
 ║  software companies develops software of massive size, imposes high        ║
 ║  fines, and will use whatever it is at their disposal to stop you from     ║
 ║  spreading their software.  But how effective are they?  And who is truly  ║
 ║  winning the war?                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Although, most software developers write programs that hog storage    ║
 ║  resources to allow them less limitations and perhaps develop better       ║
 ║  software.  There is no denial that larger programs are harder to pirate   ║
 ║  and is discouraging to even pirate.  From 1988, software programs were    ║
 ║  averaging the mere size of 2 megabytes, while today has grown to about    ║
 ║  650 megabytes on a single CD.  Today, 650 megabytes is a lot relative to  ║
 ║  2.0 megabytes, but how effective has this growth in size slowed down      ║
 ║  software piracy?  Through the help of the hardware industry, in           ║
 ║  particular modem development, and skilled software crackers/rippers, one  ║
 ║  sees that software pirates are NOT spending a more significant amount of  ║
 ║  time transferring programs from computer to computer.  In the period of   ║
 ║  1988, the most predominant modulator/demodulators (modems) were going at  ║
 ║  speeds of 2400 bytes per second. By doing your math correctly, it would   ║
 ║  say that one would spend about 2 hours and 19 minutes per transfer of     ║
 ║  programs.                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Through CD ripping, today pirates are able to cut down programs to    ║
 ║  approximately 28.0 megabytes (some of the more successful rips average    ║
 ║  about 12.0 megabytes).  As most home pirates don't have ISDN lines, they  ║
 ║  are limited to modems running at 33.6 kilobytes per second modems.  Once  ║
 ║  again, by doing your math it shows that software pirates are spending     ║
 ║  about the same 2 hours and 19 minutes transferring programs today as      ║
 ║  they did over 8 years ago.  Through statistics, it shows that this has    ║
 ║  been a slightly fluctuating trend.  So although today's pirates maybe     ║
 ║  using t1 lines or even t3s on their Internet service providers, pirates   ║
 ║  are limited to this 2:19 barrier when transferring files to their home    ║
 ║  PC.                                                                       ║

 ║      Perhaps because Moore's Law states that technology doubles every 16   ║
 ║  months, transfer rates have also gone up to match the increasing size of  ║
 ║  software programs.  CDs however, still limits software pirates against    ║
 ║  video intensive software such as Phantasmagoria by Sierra Online.  In     ║
 ║  any case, my analysis shows that use of CDs as the predominant choice of  ║
 ║  media is by no means an efficient means of preventing software piracy.    ║
 ║  Although the use of CDs does not by any means efficiently stop us from    ║
 ║  pirating, we must also consider that most of the software pirates         ║
 ║  releasing software under an affiliation can be considered professionals.  ║
 ║  Most pirating laymen, who classically copied computer disks and gave      ║
 ║  them to friends, are unable to crack and rip CDs themselves.  Thus        ║
 ║  rendering CDs unpiratable to that specific class of computer users.  To   ║
 ║  the other extreme, there are those who burn CDs, and can produce mass     ║
 ║  quantities of illegally pirated software.  This once again shows the      ║
 ║  ineffectiveness of CDs as an anti-piracy measure.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Another measure in prevention of software piracy taken on by the      ║
 ║  software publishers is the use of some kind of documentation or serial    ║
 ║  number check.  Again, to the pirating laymen, this is an effective        ║
 ║  prevention of piracy.  However, it doesn't take much to photocopy the     ║
 ║  documentation from a friend nor is it hard to write down the serial       ║
 ║  number while you're at a friend's house while copying those disks.  To    ║
 ║  the professional pirates, these documentation checks are only a small     ║
 ║  obstacle in their attempt to illegally reproduce the software which is    ║
 ║  useable to others.  Skilled programmers and crackers can easily render    ║
 ║  most software checks inoperable and determine the proper serial number    ║
 ║  for the software.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      This inability to prevent software pirates from illegally             ║
 ║  reproducing their software is definitely an indication that software      ║
 ║  pirates are winning the battle against software publishers.  According    ║
 ║  to a May 1995 Computerworld survey of information systems professionals,  ║
 ║  47% of the respondents admitted to copying commercial software            ║
 ║  illegally, despite the fact that 78% agreed it should never be done.      ║

 ║  Network, which is an electronic based magazine.  I am currently writing   ║

 ║  fighting it.  I would like to take a moment of your time to ask you a     ║
 ║  few questions on behalf of your company.                                  ║

 ║      With the increasing use of CD-ROMs by consumers and developers, it    ║
 ║  has allowed the developers to put more information in programs with less  ║
 ║  storage limitations.  From your company's stand point, how has the        ║

 ║      In the battle against software piracy, what measures has your         ║
 ║  company taken to PREVENT piracy of their products?                        ║

 ║      We're sorry to interrupt your playing of some stupid ass golf game.   ║
 ║  The game I'm referring to is "Links Legends In Sports '97 (c) Access"     ║
 ║  released by Prestige on July 18, 1996.  Why is this release any           ║
 ║  different from the myriad of other Prestige releases?  Well, this         ║
 ║  release sucked because it was horribly ripped.  Nowhere in the            ║
 ║  prestige.nfo does Prestige inform its downloaders that this game only     ║
 ║  includes ONE of the available FOUR golfers.  Nowhere in the prestige.nfo  ║
 ║  does Prestige inform its downloaders that all modem and Win95 support     ║
 ║  was ripped out.  All in all, this was a horrible rip because Prestige     ║
 ║  should never have been so sloppy as to release only 1/4th of the game.    ║
 ║  But to make matters worse, Prestige also did a horrible packaging job by  ║
 ║  not informing people the fact that they were only downloading a portion   ║
 ║  of the game.  So to all those who downloaded it, sorry about the big      ║
 ║  surprise, if you're mad at the crap you downloaded, blame the group that  ║
 ║  released the crap.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      To make matters worse, Prestige starts off this release by putting    ║
 ║  down a more established games group, Razor 1911.  The "playing of some    ║
 ║  crappy racing game" that Prestige was referring to in the prestige.nfo    ║
 ║  was Razor's release of Grand Prix 2.  Prestige had no right to put down   ║
 ║  Razor for that release.  First off, Razor did not just release the game   ║
 ║  with one car available for you to drive, nor did Razor release the game   ║
 ║  with but one track to drive on.  If anything, Prestige should have been   ║
 ║  congratulating Razor for beating them on this release, but instead, all   ║
 ║  we hear is Prestige crying "SOUR GRAPES."                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      To make matters even worse, Prestige decided to give their release a  ║
 ║  fat 100% game rating.  Excuse me, but if I've never gotten 100% on a      ║
 ║  test when answering only 1/4 of the questions, and believe me, I've       ║
 ║  taken A LOT of tests.  So, if Prestige has some kind of weird fucking     ║
 ║  new counting method, I'd be glad to learn.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      As a former IRC courier, I know one of the most annoying parts is     ║
 ║  dealing with buggy, slow, and ugly scripts.  I remember the hours of      ║
 ║  download and setup time, just to have the script go completely nuts       ║
 ║  after 20 minutes in channel #fATEfiles.  Now, there is an alternative.    ║
 ║  Atlantis combines the ease of fphoenix, the protection of LiCe, and the   ║
 ║  speed of Tech5.  Unlike many others however, Atlantis also comes with     ║
 ║  its own array of unique features that makes it the most powerful IRC      ║
 ║  couriering tool around.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      First, let me point out the main advantage of Atlantis : DCC RESUME.  ║
 ║  This is the first IRCii script EVER to incorperate this breakthrough.     ║
 ║  Atlantis DCC RESUME allows not only leeway in how big you make the pack   ║
 ║  to offer, allowing more pack spaces, it completely erradicates any time   ║
 ║  wasted resending entire packs to those who's client died for some         ║
 ║  reason.  Resume, however, is just one of the many XDCC features offered   ║
 ║  by Atlantis.  Ever since fphoenix introduced queuing, we've all been      ║
 ║  plagued by its inadequacy.  I'm sure all of you have gotten stuck on      ║
 ║  queues that never send.  Not only that, they keep annoying you with       ║
 ║  notices of your queue possition that never changes.  With Atlantis, this  ║
 ║  ends.  Atlantis has the fastest queuing around that is totally            ║
 ║  unexploitable, and bug free.  Some of the other XDCC options you'll find  ║
 ║  in Atlantis include : secured DCC, quick save of pack lists, and delayed  ║
 ║  auto pack listing.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      For those of you looking for a script that has more than just fancy   ║
 ║  XDCC options, Atlantis will prove more than enough for you.  Atlantis     ║
 ║  offers many setup options, from kick/logoff msg's, to channel flood       ║
 ║  sensor settings that allow you to control most of the idiots testing      ║
 ║  their neato new nick floods.  With Atlantis you'll never have to worry    ║
 ║  about being vulnerable.  There are 4 flood protection settings ranging    ║
 ║  from totally open to totally cloaked.  Not to mention, DCC exploit        ║
 ║  protection from the master himself (remember nova? :>).  Atlantis         ║
 ║  doesn't end there however, there are many many more of the essential Op   ║
 ║  commands, Lists, and Misc options.  It even has windowing features that   ║
 ║  allow multiple logins, and shelling capabilities.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now for those of you that still aren't convinced.  Let's talk about   ║
 ║  the disadvantages of other scripts, namely fphoenix.  Fphoenix was nice   ║
 ║  when she (yes SHE) was updating it, but there hasn't been an update for   ║
 ║  several months.  This can lead to many annoying problems.  First of all,  ║
 ║  her "impenatrable" defenses are out of date, and I believe there are      ║
 ║  some DCC exploits that now work on it.  Another problem is all those      ║
 ║  bugs will probably never get fixed.  With Atlantis, when it first came    ║
 ║  out, Dethnite worked day and night to make sure all bugs reported were    ║
 ║  fixed.  Lack of updates aren't the only problems.  The script itself is   ║
 ║  a modification of a rip of code that's bloated in the first place.        ║
 ║  Atlantis is 100% original, making use of the newest coding techniques,    ║
 ║  which improves speed and reliablity.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now let me give you an idea about what happened behind the scenes.    ║
 ║  Most people don't really think about how a script came into being, so     ║
 ║  let me give you an idea.  When I first met Dethnite about 6 months ago,   ║
 ║  he had a lot of ideas he was throwing around for a new script.  While he  ║
 ║  was still writing nova, he and a few others of us sat in channel #HavoK   ║
 ║  discussing the focus of this project.  What became clear through the      ║
 ║  course of the conversation was that he wanted a script that would         ║
 ║  essentially replace fphoenix as the offering script of choice.  So, when  ║
 ║  he began coding it, he took the XDCC options into special consideration.  ║
 ║  He added a DCC status bar that allows you to see, at a glance, how much   ║
 ║  a transfer has to go.  He created the fastest, most efficient queuing     ║
 ║  system available.  Now, he's also added the first DCC RESUME ever.        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Dethnite hopes that everyone appreciates his contribution to the IRC  ║
 ║  couriering scene.  You can contact Dethnite on IRC in the channel #atl.   ║
 ║  He did not want me to give out his email, as last time it was in the      ║
 ║  script some idiots decided it'd be neat to see if he'd accually read all  ║
 ║  1000 of the mail bomb emails.  Also try not to bother him asking if he    ║
 ║  has the new version.  Just /msg atl-dcc xdcc list if it's online to get   ║
 ║  the latest update.  It should say when the newest one with resume is      ║
 ║  released.  So if the xdcc list doesn't say Atlantis with resume, it       ║
 ║  isn't the right one.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Hello to all those who read RCN!  This is my first article that       ║
 ║  includes two interviews in it, and it certainly won't be my last.  This   ║
 ║  interview/article talks about a release called AIDS (America is Dying     ║
 ║  Slowly) and debates on who released it, Legion or CCA?                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      There was a HUGE debate/arguement over this in channel #Legion        ║
 ║  around 11:30 am.  Personally, I didn't like it and became annoyed at the  ║
 ║  fact a group would actually steal another group's release.  So, I took    ║
 ║  the liberty to interview BOTH sides so that I remain fair.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  <Alakazam> Ok, well, Fab Five from CCA, released a program called AIDS    ║
 ║             (that stands for America Is Dying Slowly) today.  We uploaded  ║
 ║             it to tonz of sitez, over 10, put it on offerbots, etc.        ║
 ║             Anyway, Lightning and CCA couriered AIDS to a site called      ║
 ║             SynCity, which I think is Legion's HQ.  A few hours later, we  ║
 ║             checked SynCity again and we found out that someone had        ║
 ║             deleted our uploaded release and replaced it with the SAME     ║
 ║             release but under a different release group.                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  <Alakazam> Well, this really enraged my group.  We went to channel        ║
 ║             #Legion to sort this out, but they didn't have any comments.   ║
 ║             So, a colleague suggested that I inform RCN.  So here I am.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  <Alakazam> Legion tried to RE-release a CCA release.  As everyone knows,  ║
 ║             CCA isn't a release group so we don't release much if          ║
 ║             anything.                                                      ║

 ║              release on SynCity and you stole it.  Is that true or not?    ║

 ║  <Dee> No, it is not.  Someone has been deleting and renaming directories  ║
 ║        to things such as CCA PUKES, etc.  Syncity is a Legion only site    ║
 ║        and I was trying to explain that to Alakazam.  However, I haven't   ║
 ║        found out who was doing the nuking.  If you logon to SynCity you    ║

 ║      CASE CLOSED!  Well, it finally turns out that no one has stolen       ║

 ║      We all know that the main purpose of the whole warez scene is to      ║
 ║  bring poor individuals like us free warez!  But have you ever thought of  ║
 ║  anything else the warez scene has brought to us?  I can certainly think   ║
 ║  of a lot of them, good and bad!                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Something bad that the warez scene has brought to us is BEING         ║
 ║  UNFAIR.  For example, someone setting groups up and releases fake/old     ║
 ║  warez that no one wants just for credits on some fast boards, these       ║
 ║  people would just upload the fake/old program or game and then they       ║
 ║  would download with all the credits they have left!  That's ridiculous!   ║
 ║  If the sysop finds out that this person does cheap things like this, the  ║
 ║  sysop would lock his *alias* out, but what these people will probably do  ║
 ║  is that they will apply with a different alias and all that and do the    ║
 ║  same thing over and over again until he or she has enough credits on all  ║
 ║  the other boards to be elite!  Now is that fair to the rest of the world  ║
 ║  who really struggled at the beginning to get started while this person    ║
 ║  just gets credits for free?  NO!                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Another example, someone joins this board with an alias of someone    ║
 ║  else (on purpose) and then when that person is validated, he would send   ║
 ║  thousands and thousands of letters, both public and private messages to   ║
 ║  users with swear words.  Obviously, the sysop and all the users that      ║
 ║  read the messages will be really pissed off at this person.  (This        ║
 ║  ALIAS!) The *alias* will be logged out and it will probably be            ║
 ║  blacklisted.  If the real person with that alias tries to join the board  ║
 ║  that has that alias blacklisted (especially the board that was flooded)   ║
 ║  the sysop will immediately engage the user to CHAT and then the sysop     ║
 ║  will release all his anger on that person when it's not even his fault!   ║
 ║  Is that fair?  Of course not, but you can't blame the sysop because he    ║
 ║  doesn't know that the person who flooded the board wasn't him.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Of course, the warez scene has also provided a tremendous amount of   ║
 ║  GOOD things to us.  The major being FREE WAREZ!!!  Everyone loves that    ║
 ║  part.  Also, it has brought all of us together as a whole with no         ║
 ║  discrimination, racism, stereotyping.  These things are found everywhere  ║
 ║  but not found in the warez scene because no one can see any other person  ║
 ║  unless they are friends and even if they see each other (maybe a meet if  ║
 ║  you live close to each other), they would have known enough about each    ║
 ║  other to not be prejudiced.                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Have you ever seen someone kicking someone out of a board/IRC         ║
 ║  channel because he/she is a member of a certain ethnic group?  Not very   ║
 ║  likely.  Have you seen someone being denied of a position in a group      ║
 ║  because he or she is fat?  Not very likely.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As with everything else there is always a good side and a bad side.   ║
 ║  Some people choose to stay in the warez scene, some people choose to      ║
 ║  leave the warez scene.  They all have different reasons but if you        ║
 ║  choose to leave the warez scene, hopefully it is not because my articles  ║
 ║  have bored you to death.                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  *PS* Remember, all groups are cool and should be respect if they          ║
 ║  contribute to the scene, even a little bit helps shape our scene!         ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Earlier this week, Prophet of Napalm proposed a merge between Napalm  ║

 ║  Prophet suggested that the two games groups merge to help support their   ║
 ║  mutual needs, and thus, form a stronger games group.  Unfortunately, Bug  ║
 ║  Lord of Epic rejected Prophet's offer.  The following is a log of a       ║

 ║      Formed on 6 July 1996, the SPA is an agreement between the 5 top PC   ║
 ║  games groups that lays down the official "rules of engagement" to be      ║
 ║  used in the battle to release the most.  Here is a synopsis of the        ║
 ║  topics that were discussed and voted on.  The 5 groups that met were      ║
 ║  Prestige, Razor 1911, Mantis, Napalm, and Hybrid.  Each group had         ║
 ║  approximately 2 representatives, and on the subject of voting, each       ║
 ║  group had one vote per issue.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      1.) All 5 groups agreed that whatever was decided in the meeting      ║
 ║          would be adhered to in the releasing process.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      2.) The 5 groups compromised on a size limit for releases.  This      ║
 ║          limit is now set at 50 1.44 meg files.  The previous limit was    ║
 ║          40 1.44 meg volumes.  In megs, this translates to approximately   ║
 ║          72 megabytes max per game.                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      3.) Groups now have the option of using 2.88 meg files instead of     ║
 ║          1.44 meg volumes should they choose to do so on a particular      ║
 ║          release.  The only catch is that ALL disks of a release must be   ║
 ║          of one format or the other.  All releases must be in either 1.44  ║
 ║          meg or 2.88 meg format.  Any games released that do not adhere    ║
 ║          to this format, or exceed the size limit (50 for 1.44's and 25    ║
 ║          for 2.88's), will be nuked for 5x credits off of all sites in     ║
 ║          the SPA.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      4.) The groups voted unanimously to ban all ROR releases from all     ║
 ║          sites participating in the SPA.  This means that ROR releases     ║
 ║          will be nuked for 5x credits on all sites/boards in the SPA.      ║
 ║          This ban is subject to a monthly review.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      5.) The 5 groups decided on the name (SPA), and that meetings would   ║
 ║          be held once a month by the leaders of the 5 groups in the SPA.   ║
 ║          At these meetings issues such as volume size, group bans, and     ║
 ║          even the size limit can be discussed.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The SPA exists primarily to enforce fair play on the groups in the    ║
 ║  scene.  The disk limit is part of it, and banning groups like ROR that    ║
 ║  release nothing but fakes and betas (and worse package them as finals)    ║
 ║  is also a part of it.  If you run a site and would like to be SPA         ║
 ║  certified, email chemist@laker.net for more information on what you can   ║
 ║  do to help.  The SPA is interested only in fair competition for all       ║
 ║  groups big and small, and in working releases for all users regardless    ║
 ║  of what group they download.  Think of us as quality control.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      There has been much debate over small courier and releasing groups.   ║
 ║  Some say that the small groups in general hurt the scene.  Others say     ║
 ║  that the small groups actually help the scene.  After being an active     ║
 ║  participant in the BBS and internet world for the last 5 years, I think   ║
 ║  I am now in a position to present the facts in an attempt to clarify the  ║
 ║  issue.                                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      A small group has many advantages over one of the larger ones.        ║
 ║  Smaller groups generally serve a small area (maybe just the local         ║
 ║  calling area) and less people involved.  This leads to better group       ║
 ║  control, management and organization.  The people in the group are in     ║
 ║  better contact with each other, and the local member boards.  Generally   ║
 ║  (and in all cases I have seen) this prevents the petty squabbles that     ║
 ║  plague the larger groups.  We can simply look in back issues of RCN to    ║
 ║  find examples of these juvenile power struggles.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Smaller groups move files around local BBSes, which should be         ║
 ║  considered a blessing to the dying local scene.  Slower boards (yes       ║
 ║  there are some) find it hard to get current files and therefore find it   ║
 ║  hard to attract people who can deliver fast files.  The major courier     ║
 ║  groups sure as hell won't bother to let a smaller board join them as a    ║
 ║  member board.  The small groups help the small (slower) boards survive.   ║
 ║  After all, many people have to work their way up the ladder of the        ║
 ║  hierarchical pyramid.  Keeping the small local boards alive is a way to   ║
 ║  insure their will be people to take over when the "elite" traders         ║
 ║  retire.                                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As hinted above smaller groups keep all people involved.  Whether it  ║
 ║  is an affiliation with the group, or simply using the files they          ║
 ║  courier.  There is always room for the scene to grow.  The only limiting  ║
 ║  factor is interest, and the number of people involved.  Small groups      ║
 ║  help create interest and keep people involved.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So far, all that has been discussed is small courier groups.  But     ║
 ║  there are a whole new set of problems when small releasing groups form.   ║
 ║  These small groups are notorious for releasing dupes, or non-working, or  ║
 ║  non-cracked files.  But what is the harm in this?  After a few            ║
 ║  infractions the small groups files will be banned and the group will      ║
 ║  die.  The damage done to the scene will be minor.  Since the small        ║
 ║  groups are mainly local, the damage is confined to one area code.  And    ║
 ║  small groups don't appear frequently on the Internet, the files will      ║
 ║  spread slowly (further minimizing the damage).  But occasionally, it is   ║
 ║  possible for one of these small groups to actual beat a lager group to    ║
 ║  the punch and release a program before them.  The small groups can also   ║
 ║  deal with files that the established groups might consider minor and of   ║
 ║  no concern (like 1 disk releases).  This might worry a larger group,      ║
 ║  hence the disdain the larger groups feel when looking at the smaller      ║
 ║  groups.  But for all those worried about a smaller group "moving in" on   ║
 ║  an established groups territory, you must remember the following.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      1.) The files of smaller groups move slower, they are not usually on  ║
 ║          the Internet.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      2.) Most people would go for a DOD util over a no-name group util.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      3.) Even if a small group releases a file faster than a large group,  ║
 ║          only a few small waves will be created in the hypothetical        ║
 ║          trading pool.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Small groups can do much good (especially for a dying area code) and  ║
 ║  do relatively little damage.  So why do people look down on them?  It     ║
 ║  might be an unjustified fear of a "new up and comer," or it might be an   ║
 ║  ego boost.  The small groups should not be frowned upon, but encouraged.  ║
 ║  After all even Microsoft started small.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      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 :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  [-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,                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  [ 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.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      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 :                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  [-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.   ║

 ║      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.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      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.   ║

 ║      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.   ║

 ║      Before you even think about carding something, you should know that   ║
 ║  you can get in BIG trouble if you get caught.  Carding is a federal       ║
 ║  offense, so just be careful and smart.  Here is what you will need to     ║
 ║  card something :                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      1.) A Credit Card.                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      2.) A drop off site.                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      3.) An online store that delivers gift orders (a different address    ║
 ║          than the cardholder's address).                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      First off, you will need a credit card with FULL information.  This   ║
 ║  must include the cardholder's FULL name, address, credit card number      ║
 ║  with experation date, phone number, city, state, zip code, bank name,     ║
 ║  and card type.  Next, you will need to find a house somewhere in your     ║
 ║  neighborhood which is vacant.  Don't even think of carding something to   ║
 ║  a house with a big "For Sale" sign in front of it, cause they won't       ║
 ║  deliver it there.  If you know somebody who is on vacation, you could     ║
 ║  use their house.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now you need to find an online store.  You can card by phone, but it  ║
 ║  is much easier just doing it all online.  To find online stores, I        ║
 ║  recommend getting a computer magazine (if you wanna get some computer     ║
 ║  stuff) such as "Computer Shopper."  This magazine is about 800 pages and  ║
 ║  is ALL advertisements for computer stores.  Now go to the online store,   ║
 ║  and find the product you want.  Have it sent either "second day air," or  ║
 ║  "express delivery."  Next day delivery is usually too suspicious, and     ║
 ║  the store will call the credit card holder back to verify the order.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      A few days later, you should be ready to go pick up the package.      ║
 ║  Only go to pick it up late at night, like sometime after 10:00 pm would   ║
 ║  be good.  Make sure that there is nobody around when you go to pick it    ║
 ║  up because you don't want to end up in jail.  If the package is not       ║
 ║  there, then wait a couple more days, and if it isn't there within a       ║
 ║  week, try carding it again.  It took me 2 times to card my RAM a few      ║
 ║  months ago, and I had it send second day express and it didn't get        ║
 ║  delivered for 7 days.  :(                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  Tips :                                                                    ║
 ║  ------                                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      1.) You might want to write a note and leave it on the door of your   ║
 ║          drop off site before the package gets delivered.  Have the note   ║
 ║          say that you work from 9 to 5 every day and ask that they please  ║
 ║          leave package on the doorstep.  Then, sign it with the signature  ║
 ║          of the person you had it sent to, NOT your name.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      2.) Don't use the same drop site more than once.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      3.) If the online store asks you for an email address, just use one   ║
 ║          that you know is valid but NOT your own.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  *PS* Have phun and don't get caught.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Carding has never meant that much to me.  I've never really gotten    ║
 ║  into it, and the only reason I ever did it was to see if it would work    ║
 ║  (which it did).  But, frankly put, it's stupid.  People don't seem to     ║
 ║  understand the risk involved.  For example, how many people in the last   ║
 ║  few years have gotten caught specifically for warez                       ║
 ║  releasing/couriering?  I don't have an exact statistic, but I wouldn't    ║
 ║  say very many.  Most people who get busted are busted for another         ║
 ║  reason, such as hacking, kiddie porn (as in the case of Anarchist), and   ║
 ║  carding.  It's just another thing that gets you in more trouble.  When    ║
 ║  people get busted for carding computer stuff, they get there computer     ║
 ║  searched.  And when they find warez they get busted for that too.  It's   ║
 ║  not a good idea, and not as safe as people think.  I'm not going to go    ║
 ║  on some big crusade to stop people from doing it.  Just be careful.       ║

 ║  Dear Double O Zero,  Well, a lot of people think you can just do it and   ║
 ║  never get caught.  Carding is one of the most watched out for things you  ║
 ║  can do anymore.  But yeah, if you are busted for something stupid like    ║
 ║  kiddy porn (Entropy) the cops would sure as heel like to tag you with a   ║
 ║  credit fraud charge also.  BUT a lot of people still get away with it,    ║
 ║  and I hope they keep getting away with it.  Screw the credit companies!   ║

 ║          from the past may necessitate a change of plans, but the rewards  ║
 ║          will be worth any temporary inconvenience.  An unexpected treat   ║

 ║          major decisions about joining or leaving a group until Mercury    ║

 ║           Tuesday.  This is the perfect time to streamline your day to     ║
 ║           day routine, but first find out what a loved one has planned.    ║
 ║           Don't push, tact will serve your purposes better.                ║

 ║           make the most of opportunities.  Monday's New Moon in your       ║
 ║           birth sign means that you are the one best positioned to call    ║
 ║           the shots.  Be wary of unsolicited advice.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Leo> (July 24 to August 23) : There appear to be too many distractions   ║
 ║        in your life just now, and too many demands on your time.  Once     ║
 ║        Mercury enters your birth sign on Tuesday, you will be better       ║
 ║        placed to tackle a personal or professional problem.  Put off a     ║

 ║  <Virgo> (August 24 to September 23) : Celestial configurations affecting  ║
 ║          your ruler Mercury will enable you to concentrate on your         ║
 ║          material and emotional needs.  A romantic liaison or creative     ║
 ║          venture may have surprising results.  Don't be afraid to wave     ║
 ║          goodbye to a familar channel or group.  It will be replaced by    ║
 ║          something far more rewarding.                                     ║

 ║          Monday's New Moon at the midheaven point of your solar chart      ║
 ║          will help you fulfill a longtime promise to yourself.  That       ║
 ║          said, however, be prepared to look beneath the surface.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Scorpio> (October 24 to November 22) : You seem to be becoming           ║
 ║            increasingly involved with other people's problems and would    ║
 ║            do well to take a few steps back.  Your ruler Pluto, supported  ║
 ║            by Mercury on Tuesday, is giving you a chance to resolve a      ║
 ║            group matter.  Make the most of it.                             ║

 ║  <Sagittarius> (November 23 to December 21) : At last you are in position  ║
 ║                to make a decision that is long overdue.  Some alterations  ║
 ║                may be required as time passes, but for the moment, just    ║
 ║                get things going.  A change of scenery is possible now,     ║
 ║                but be sure you're moving on for the right reasons.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Capricorn> (December 22 to January 20) : Someone important is trying to  ║
 ║              attract your attention, but you need to respond cautiously.   ║
 ║              Meanwhile, an issue with your warez affiliates must be        ║
 ║              resolved before your ruler, Saturn, shifts direction on       ║
 ║              Thursday.                                                     ║

 ║      I was minding my own business one day while browsing through some     ║
 ║  oldwarez sites when I stumbled upon a "Mortal.Kombat.3" directory.  I     ║
 ║  have been looking for this game for a while now and I was quite happy     ║
 ║  that this site still had it.  I happily leeched all the tdumk3*.zip       ║
 ║  files.  After installing MK3, and just plain screwing around, I found     ║
 ║  myself very disappointed with the fact that I could not do any of the     ║
 ║  fatalities or special moves.  I remembered that there was a mk3codes.txt  ║
 ║  on that site which I had passed by.  I decided to pay that site another   ║
 ║  visit.                                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Upon reading mk3codes.txt, I was surprised to see that this text      ║
 ║  file was written by Tklp.  At that time, Tklp was a senior of this lame   ║
 ║  group called uh... LAME.  Not only did I learn my favorite MK3            ║
 ║  fatalities and special moves, I also learned that before Tklp was busy    ║
 ║  releasing beta games that were hex edited to say they were the final,     ║
 ║  Tklp was busy writing cheat codes and special moves and then releasing    ║
 ║  them as text files.  At least he made himself useful back then, perhaps   ║
 ║  he should have stuck with it.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now, what really makes me laugh is that this mk3codes.txt also has a  ║
 ║  phone number at the bottom of it.  Tklp says that if anyone has problem   ║
 ║  with the MK3 cheat codes, they should call him at this number.  I don't   ║
 ║  know if the phone number still works, I never bothered to test it.        ║
 ║  Remember, I found this text file on an oldwarez site, the following       ║
 ║  document could have been leeched by ANYONE...                             ║

 ║      Prophet is right.  This Napalm release REALLY is a lame ass game.     ║
 ║  You see, this game comes with the ID4 action figures.  I guess Napalm is  ║

 ║      The Renegade Chemist calls himself the The Budget Chemist here        ║
 ║  because he knows that this shit release sells for $9.99... how do I       ║
 ║  know?  I work at Egghead.  I'm writing this so The Budget Chemist here    ║
 ║  will never again be stupid enough to go out of his way and put down       ║

 ║  To install, unpack PINOCHLE.ARJ into a dir.  Then run SETUP.EXE.  Once    ║
 ║  you've installed it, make a dir in the directory installed to called      ║
 ║  BPIN (ex. C:\PINOCHLE\BPIN).  Now go into the dir you installed FROM and  ║
 ║  copy the files from the \BICYCLE\BPIN subdir into the dir you just made.  ║
 ║  Let me give you an example. Let's say we installed from C:\TEST to        ║
 ║  C:\PINOCHLE First go into C:\PINOCHLE and make a sub dir called BPIN, so  ║
 ║  you have C:\PINOCHLE\BPIN.  Copy everything from C:\TEST\BICYCLE\BPIN     ║
 ║  into C:\PINOCHLE\BPIN.  Once all that is done, run CRACK.COM in the       ║
 ║  C:\PINOCHLE directory.  Sorry about the jury rigging, but this was a      ║
 ║  pain to reroute.                                                          ║

║       Well the last two weeks have been very busy in empire but we're      ║
│   coming out good as a result of all our hard work. Everyday I get more    │
:   empire applications, soon there will be no more trials it will be        :
.   invite only to become an empire inet courier. We need good bbs couriers  .
·   that can up at least 300 a week. We are accepting t1+ sites, and cc#     ·
    providers, and shell providers. Empire is about to add three more
    sites to our already big crew of sites on the net. These are all t1 or
    better and two of the three are linux. Long live the empire!

     │group, i'm more interested in Quality, not quantity.  We are going│
     │to make the attempt to courier/release, but my main strengths so  │
     │far are going to be Couriering.  If you think you are dedicated   │
