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!  ║

 ║      It happened on the 17th of July when I was in a bad mood and took     ║
 ║  over channel #CD because I was auto-opped there.  So I massdeoped and     ║
 ║  kick those lamerz out.  I ignored all CTCP and then MSG's also.  In       ║
 ║  about 30 minutes I get killed by MikeySoft.                               ║

 ║  has an IRCop to kill you for takeovers?!  I mean, there isn't such thing  ║
 ║  as OWNING CHANNELS!  They shouldn't have opped me in the first place.  I  ║
 ║  come back all pissed (I was on mo.net all the time) and messaged          ║
 ║  Incarnate bitching at him telling him that he is a lamer and that he      ║

 ║  will flood Mikeysoft off before taking over.  This cost me another        ║

 ║      I am writing to you in response to issue 22's interview with TSR      ║
 ║  (The Speed Racer), head of Razor 1911.  In this interview, the            ║
 ║  interviewer, Rebel Chicken, claimed that he strictly stayed away from     ║
 ║  supplying warez because he felt he might become biased when he            ║
 ║  interviewed people.  However, in the same article, the interview          ║
 ║  continuously shows bias against an ex-head of Razor, namely, TRC (The     ║
 ║  Renegade Chemist).                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I, being from the same area code from TRC, do know that some times    ║
 ║  he can be a bit "rude" towards people he doesn't like or that do not      ║
 ║  share his exact opinion on the scene.  I have experienced this            ║
 ║  "rudeness" first hand.  However, I do not feel that is any excuse to be   ║
 ║  biased.  I have seen you "twisting" TRC's words in such a way that would  ║
 ║  make him look bad.  One example is when you made an interview with him,   ║
 ║  and he, as a joke said "I am a GOD!"  You then immediately took his       ║
 ║  words, which had nothing to do with the interview, and put them as the    ║
 ║  title of the interview to make TRC "look bad."                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I like RCN very much, and I think it's great that you people inform   ║
 ║  the warez scene, but what you write many times is only a half truth.  I   ║
 ║  have seen other examples of this kind of biasness and have chosen this    ║
 ║  one because I know TRC, and thought that you guys went too far.  I hope   ║
 ║  you stop being being biased and make up with TRC because he is one of     ║
 ║  the best game suppliers and is a very respected man in the warez          ║

 ║  Dear Cool Guy,                                                            ║

 ║      First off, I said that I did not wish to supply not because I did     ║
 ║  not want to be biased toward certain groups, but because I was biased     ║
 ║  against making myself supply/crack/package a game.  You should read more  ║
 ║  carefully before you start talking shit.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      On the note of TRC's saying "I am a GOD!"  His exact words were,      ║
 ║  "But I am a GOD!"  Those words were used not in a joking manner, but in   ║
 ║  a serious manner as can be seen when you read the full log which was      ║
 ║  published in RCN.  In other words, he wasn't joking, and he claimed that  ║
 ║  he was a GOD in the scene in defense of his own status.  Also, when you   ║
 ║  claim that I twisted his words to make him look bad?  That I did not do,  ║
 ║  however, you are trying to twist his words and take his words out of      ║
 ║  context to make him look better than he actually is.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I agree with you on the note that TRC is one of the best game         ║
 ║  suppliers, but do I really give a fuck?  He could be Bill Fucking         ║
 ║  Clinton for all I care, and if he does something stupid, by golly, I'll   ║
 ║  be the first to cover it, and that is in no way being biased.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Hi, I'm Karzy.  I'm not really new to the warez scene but until now,  ║
 ║  all I pretty much did was sit in channel #Oldwarez and leech under        ║
 ║  various nicknames.  But now I have necided to speak my mind.  Ops are     ║
 ║  too damn touchy on certain channels, not primarily in channel #Oldwarez   ║
 ║  but on many other channels too.  And it's annoying.  I mean, it seems     ║
 ║  like you can't even joke around with someone anymore without them         ║
 ║  getting all defensive and throwing it back in your face like you were     ║
 ║  sitting there kicking them in the head.  I don't know how many times I    ║
 ║  will have cracked a joke and the next thing I see is :                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      You have been kicked off channel #(insert here) by (insert here)      ║
 ║      (Banned: Shut the fuck up lamer)                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      And frankly, I am getting sick of it.  I mean, you would think        ║
 ║  people would have a sense of humor knowing they are getting thousands of  ║
 ║  dollars in software for free, but NOOOO!  They have to get all up on      ║
 ║  their high horse because they are ops and they are so quick to whip out   ║
 ║  the /bk at the first time that their ego may be in jeopardy.              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      It's even gotten to the point now that you can be kick/banned off a   ║
 ║  channel for offering the wrong stuff.  If you don't offer 0-day stuff in  ║
 ║  some of the #WarezX channels they will /bk you.  Bankicks are easy to     ║
 ║  get around but they never make anyone feel welcome.  I think that we all  ║
 ║  need to take this a lot more lightly.  I am guilty too, I recognize that  ║
 ║  sometimes people get pissed off and start screaming over little shit.     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I think that the solution to this is having fewer ops.  Like last     ║
 ║  night on channel #Oldwarez, some guy came into the channel, got ops,      ║
 ║  then mass deoped and got kicked by himself for mass-deoping.  That was    ║
 ║  fun, you could joke around without worrying about a perma-ban.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      But some people took the opportunity to be stupid and cntrl^g'd a     ║
 ║  million times and flooded just to be lame because they wouldn't get       ║
 ║  kicked.  The moral of the story is, ops, try to take things a little      ║
 ║  more lightly.                                                             ║

 ║      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.       ║

 ║      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    ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      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.  ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  ME and the rest of the scene games, I'm happy, and I'll thank him for     ║

 ║      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.                 ║

 ║  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      ║

 ║  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,                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I was on my favorite warez channel, #Warez66, and I had been asking   ║
 ║  around for some time now and no one seemed to be responding.  Then after  ║
 ║  time of waiting, to my joy, a guy named NetFrack goes "I do."  I quickly  ║
 ║  messaged him back, and he DCC's me this huge "Mywarez.nfo."  I shell to   ║
 ║  DOS to see what this nfo file is all about and, find out its a nicely     ║
 ║  arranged list of all this guy has!                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Overjoyed, I try to strike a deal with him, and ask him questions     ║
 ║  which indulges us in a conversation.  The thing that really surprizes     ║
 ║  me, is when I learned that he started warez only 8 months ago!  The       ║
 ║  biggest shock comes to me when he tells me he got his first computer in   ║
 ║  November of 1995!  His first experience with a computer he says was when  ║
 ║  he was 8 years old (a Comodore 64, at a Kids Centre) playing games and    ║
 ║  crap.  From then on, he dreamed of getting one.                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Finally, after another 7 years his fascination with computers was at  ║
 ║  its peak, he bought one.  Though not knowing much about them, he decided  ║
 ║  to make the leap and finally managed to get Ma and Pa to get him one.     ║
 ║  Low on money he had to choose the most economical, a Pentium 75, with 8   ║
 ║  megs of ram.  After that, like any newbie, he went and signed up with     ║
 ║  AOL, Compuserve, etc.  He tried them all out.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      However, he was still not into the wonderfull world of warez until a  ║
 ║  friend of his gives him a copy of Doom 2, with group nfos and all.  He    ║
 ║  sees them and realizes that something very interesting out there exists,  ║
 ║  which he must find out about.  In December of 1995, he gets a real        ║
 ║  Internet account, and manages to figure out IRC in about 2 weeks.  From   ║
 ║  that time until now, he has managed to gather 2.2 gigs of warez (don't    ║
 ║  ask me how, he doensn't know either) and has even managed to join some    ║
 ║  groups, as an artist and a courier.                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      This guy went from being a computer illiterate, to a warez god in     ║
 ║  such a short time.  What I'm trying to say is, if NetFrack can do it,     ║
 ║  all you newbies, pirates or not, can too!  All it requires, is            ║
 ║  dedication, and the willingness to go out and learn about the scene       ║
 ║  first!  Then the warez will come to you...                                ║

 ║  each mag.  I just don't know how you do it.  Needless to say, since       ║
 ║  issue #19, I'm a latecomer, but very hooked on your publication.          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Two comments.  One, is it me or does your website links go nowhere?   ║
 ║  What's up with that?                                                      ║

 ║      Second, I've read a lot about dupes, etc., and have experienced       ║
 ║  downloading mega releases, only to find viruses in key files.  Gotta      ║
 ║  suggestion maybe you dudz might be able to pass along to the release      ║
 ║  groups.                                                                   ║
 ║      1.) Generate a PGP public key for your group                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      2.) On all of your releases, verify the .zip or .arj or .rar or       ║
 ║  whateverthefuck you use with that key.                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      This verifies that the files are GENUINE releases from the group in   ║
 ║  question, and that they stand behind the fact that they're virus free.    ║
 ║  That way, some phuckin lamer who wants to put Stoned Monkey or some       ║
 ║  other lamer shit in the file, will have to phuck with the file, thus it   ║
 ║  won't pass the key.                                                       ║

 ║      I was reading RCN #23 when I came to an editorial done by a member    ║
 ║  of RCN (HBKid).  It was regarding how release groups release programs     ║
 ║  which nobody would use, and how it's not their fault.  Here's a piece of  ║
 ║  his work :                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  "I guess it is not the release group's fault if the programmers these     ║
 ║  days are not making quality programs... have some pride and don't         ║
 ║  release 'How To Type Faster Part 5' when they know people don't use it."  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      When I read this, I thought to myself "But it is the release group's  ║
 ║  fault."  The fault is not at the programmer.  People do use these         ║
 ║  programs <as lame as that may seem>.  They are used in school, in         ║
 ║  training programs, etc.  There are many programs out there which may      ║
 ║  seem dumb, but in the professional world, and not in this fantasy world   ║
 ║  we live in, the programs are very important, and are used by thousands    ║
 ║  of people through out the world.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      This is just a word of advice to the release groups.  Even though it  ║
 ║  is a VERY hard job these days to find and release a good game or util,    ║
 ║  you must also stop and think that not everyone in the scene will give     ║
 ║  you the credit for it (as HBKid said in his article).  There are many     ║
 ║  people in the scene who will take advantage of the release, and use it    ║
 ║  for their personal use, but the majority will only look at the release,   ║
 ║  and go onto the next.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  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        ║

 ║      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:                                               ║

 ║      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.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      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!                                          ║

 ║  Group A would steal a good courier from Group B, and then Group B would   ║
 ║  get mad and then Group B would steal a good courier from Group A, and so  ║
 ║  on.  Courier groups would steal a member here, and a member there for     ║
 ║  the sake of improving a group's couriering ability.  However, with the    ║
 ║  advent of the Internet, and the structuring of the few but well           ║
 ║  organized FTP sites, many courier groups are now switching their          ║
 ║  attention into battling over FTP sites instead.  A good FTP courier       ║
 ║  could be found anywhere, but a good FTP site is hard to come by, and is   ║
 ║  heavily sought after by group leaders.  Group leaders risk (no pun        ║
 ║  intended) a few back stabbings here, and lie a bit there, and do          ║
 ║  something lame somewhere else, just for the chance that they might be     ║

 ║  <Abo-bo> Do you know about Ryu and Oasis and the situation between        ║
 ║           Amnesia and RISC?  Do you know the situation there?              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Pand> No, I do not, but just tell me the information and I will see to   ║
 ║         it that the higher ups at RCN will get this information.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Abo-bo> Well, here is the situation, Ryu and Vile started a site named   ║
 ║           The Doughnut Hole with Ryu and Vile as siteops.  We'll refer to  ║
 ║           that site as the The Doughnut Hole for sake of anonymity.        ║
 ║           Later on, Vile dropped out of the site for a few weeks, and Ryu  ║
 ║           asked Devast to help out as a cositeop.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Pand> Please continue...                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Abo-bo> Then, the site became the Prestige USHQ and the Amnesia Courier  ║
 ║           HQ.  At this point, Devast lied to Ryu to try to get him to      ║
 ║           drop Amnesia and go with RISC.  Ryu told Devast and RISC that    ║
 ║           he did not want to drop Amnesia for RISC (refer to the           ║
 ║           interview with Ryu in RCN #23).  At that time, Devast kept on    ║
 ║           trying to get The Doughnut Hole to go with RISC by getting Ryu   ║
 ║           to drop Amnesia.                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Pand> I see, is there anything else?                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Abo-bo> Ryu repeatedly slammed Devast's ideas to go with RISC.  Ryu's    ║
 ║           logic was that Devast wanted RISC only for his own personal      ║
 ║           gain by schmoozing the higher ups of RISC.  And Ryu did not      ║
 ║           want that kind of shit to happen on his site.  The fact of the   ║
 ║           matter was this, Devast thought that he owned the site now.  No  ║
 ║           matter how much work he thinks that he put into the site, Ryu    ║
 ║           was still the one housing the hardware.  If the feds had         ║
 ║           knocked down the door, Ryu would go to jail, not Devast.  This   ║
 ║           was and is Ryu's site.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Pand> So the actual site is like in Ryu's room?                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Abo-bo> After this, the hardware needed to be moved to another location  ║
 ║           for reasons that I am not willing to reveal.  An unnamed person  ║
 ║           volunteered to house the hardware under the stipulation that it  ║
 ║           whould still be Ryu's site.  The only difference would be that   ║
 ║           the hardware was in a new local.  The day after the unnamed      ║
 ║           siteop gave that promise to Ryu, he took that back after Ryu     ║
 ║           had decided to boot Devast from the site.  Ryu wanted Devast     ║
 ║           out because Devast was using the site for personal gain and for  ║
 ║           selfish motivations.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Pand> Yuck...                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Abo-bo> At this point in time, the siteops and cositeops decided that    ║
 ║           they wanted to drop Amnesia again, and bring in RISC.  It's      ║
 ║           funny since 4 of the 7 siteops and cositeops are RISC members.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Pand> Whoa, I guess RISC secured that site.                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Abo-bo> Ryu would not let this happen.  He stated before that his site   ║
 ║           would not go to RISC, and now, by Devast's undermining, the      ║
 ║           site was again trying to do so!  Ryu stated the fact that he     ║
 ║           would leave the site as a siteop if they booted Amnesia, which   ║
 ║           they did.  So Ryu is no longer a siteop on The Doughnut Hole.    ║
 ║           I have a log that I took with Devast, Revolver, and myself.  I   ║
 ║           want this published so that the scene knows what a whining,      ║
 ║           sniveling, and backstabbing little bitch that Devast really is.  ║
 ║           Can I dcc you the log file?                                      ║

 ║  <Pand> Go right ahead, I would really appreciate it.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║           vote, but lost.                                                  ║

 ║  <Devast> I did.                                                           ║

 ║  <Revolver> YOU?  I could have sworn it was Ryu.                           ║

 ║  <Devast> I got the traders on there trading.  I made it what it was and   ║
 ║           Ryu knows that.                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Abo-Bo> Devast, you my friend, are a bitch.  You voted to oust Ryu when  ║
 ║           he started the site?!?!?  Fuck you all.  If you all want a site  ║
 ║           without Ryu, then you need to pick a new name.  The Doughnut     ║
 ║           Hole was, and always will be, Ryu's site and you are a bitch     ║
 ║           for not backing him up.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Devast> How am I supposed to back up Ryu after he tried to remove me     ║
 ║           from the staff even though I was the one who did everything for  ║
 ║           the site?                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Revolver> I just think that you wanted RISC from the start because you   ║
 ║             have some personal fantasy in being one of the scene high      ║
 ║             rollers and the only ride you have to being anything like      ║
 ║             that is with The Doughnut Hole.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Abo-Bo> Ryu wanted to remove you from the site because you wanted to     ║
 ║           ditch Amnesia and go with RISC, why?  Because you are afraid of  ║
 ║           facing a challenge.  You, my friend, might know some shit about  ║
 ║           UNIX, but you could use a lesson or 2 in the loyalty             ║
 ║           department.  RISC will use you and the site until you are not    ║
 ║           worth a shit.  Then RISC will drop you like a sack of garbage.   ║
 ║           You fell for their games, sucker.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Revolver> And why do you think personally you would belong in RISC?      ║
 ║             You're not a trader.  What would you personally have to offer  ║
 ║             them as a group??                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Devast> I simply want the site to be the best it can and that is done    ║
 ║           only with RISC.                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Revolver> And what does RISC have that Amnesia doesn't??                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Devast> RISC is respected and it has traders.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Abo-Bo> Man, you are truly lame.  And you say that the site will be      ║
 ║           better with RISC as an affiliation?  Listen here newbie, all of  ║
 ║           the RISC traders that are worth a shit will trade on The         ║
 ║           Doughnut Hole, not because it is a RISC site, but because it a   ║
 ║           good site.  You voted to kick out Amnesia because you wanted to  ║
 ║           kiss ass to RISC, and you know it.  I finally see how truly      ║
 ║           weak you are, it is a pity.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Revolver> From day one, Coolio said that Ryu would have FULL CONTROL of  ║
 ║             the damn site.  He said that the only new stipulation was      ║
 ║             that it was on his damn box.                                   ║

 ║  <Devast> No, that was not the case, ask Coolio.                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Abo-bo> You're a pussy and you have pushed for RISC before and Ryu told  ║
 ║           you to go to hell.  And now you got your way, how many loads of  ║
 ║           cum did you have to swollow to get it?!?!                        ║

 ║ █RCN█: So what is your position on this situation with the site and        ║
 ║        having Ryu kicked out?                                              ║

 ║ █CYB█: I think that the whole thing is childish, Ryu agreed that for       ║
 ║        major decisions, we take a vote and the majority rules.  We voted   ║
 ║        to leave Amnesia 5 to 1.  He was 1, so we left Amnesia.  He said    ║
 ║        that if we left Amnesia, then he'd quit, so we kicked him out.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Of course you did, you are in RISC.  If you didn't say vote for     ║
 ║        RISC and I was in RISC, I would get you kicked out of RISC.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CYB█: It's simple.  I am trying to keep an objective point of view on     ║
 ║        this.                                                               ║

 ║ █RCN█: Ryu left, he was not kicked.                                        ║

 ║ █CYB█: But I just think he should have followed his own rules about the    ║
 ║        site.  He could have stayed in Amnesia, but he said if the site     ║
 ║        leaves then he would leave the site.  He could have been in         ║
 ║        Amnesia and a siteop on The Doughnut Hole.  I'm in RISC, but I      ║
 ║        didn't quit RISC to become a cositeop on The Doughnut Hole.  It's   ║
 ║        the same thing. I'm in Prestige and The Doughnut Hole is            ║
 ║        affiliated with Razor, I am not quitting Prestige to join Razor.    ║
 ║        Devast was in no group, yet he is still a siteop on an Amnesia      ║
 ║        site.                                                               ║

 ║ █RCN█: You have a duty as a loyal RISC member to make sure that shit goes  ║
 ║        good in RISC's direction.                                           ║

 ║ █CYB█: I have a loyalty as a RISC member to do what's best for RISC.  So   ║
 ║        yes, you are correct.                                               ║

 ║ █RCN█: Is this true?  Does this alter your decision at all?  That's all I  ║
 ║        want to know since almost all the members of the The Doughnut Hole  ║
 ║        staff are in RISC.                                                  ║

 ║ █CYB█: All the cositeops are RISC members.  I voted to leave Amnesia       ║
 ║        because Amnesia wasn't supporting The Doughnut Hole enough and yet  ║
 ║        Amnesia had 15 leech accounts.                                      ║

 ║ █RCN█: Don't you think that alters the decision just a little itty bit     ║
 ║        though?                                                             ║

 ║ █CYB█: No.  I told you I am being objective on this, I am not letting my   ║
 ║        being in RISC effect it.                                            ║

 ║        more like that The Doughnut Hole is a good site and all the RISC    ║
 ║        members think it should be in RISC.                                 ║

 ║ █CYB█: It wasn't me.  I just nuked Amnesia once, and maybe a few other     ║
 ║        people that I didn't know of and who weren't on BBX.  I was told    ║

 ║ █ASL█: Well let me see, when I was calling a UK board called the flying    ║
 ║        teapot (using a different handle at that time) I guess I was not    ║
 ║        in any groups.  This is because I guess one could class me as       ║
 ║        inept in the warez of the scene, but I contributed whatever I       ║
 ║        could to the board.  In 1992, I joined a small Internet group       ║
 ║        called FC.  Although one could not class it as a serious group in   ║
 ║        terms of trading, warez, or speed, I still feel that FC held the    ║
 ║        foundations of what the scene, the true scene is all about.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What foundations did this group hold which makes up the true        ║
 ║        scene?                                                              ║

 ║ █ASL█: The true scene is not just phreaking, carding, but the fact that    ║
 ║        you share friendships which in my opinion is a thing that should    ║
 ║        happen now.  As well, one can see the bullshit in groups is         ║
 ║        growing nowadays, group fights, etc.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What happened after you joined FC, when did you take leave for      ║
 ║        other courier groups?                                               ║

 ║ █ASL█: After FC, where I met the likes of Stingray 6 and Cruger of RISC    ║
 ║        (Rise in Superior Couriering), I joined RTS (Request to Send),      ║
 ║        under the leadership of Dorian Hawkmoon and Ordnance.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What were your duties in RTS, and what did you accomplish while in  ║
 ║        RTS?                                                                ║

 ║ █ASL█: Reflecting back on RTS, my main job was to coordinate their         ║
 ║        Internet side, and I thought I was doing good job, however          ║
 ║        problems with the leadership made me leave RTS along with Dorian    ║
 ║        Hawkmoon and a few others to form the group Malice.  With Vile and  ║
 ║        Dorian's assistance, we rebuilt Malice with Jake the Snake.  At     ║
 ║        first, I was a member of Council, but as more pressing duties       ║
 ║        arose, I was given the position of Vice President.  Given the       ║
 ║        charge of Malice was an honour to be bestowed on me, and I knew I   ║
 ║        wanted to run Malice a little differently from most groups out      ║
 ║        their.                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How did you want to run Malice differetly?  What did you have in    ║
 ║        mind that would have made Malice stand out above the rest?          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ASL█: I tried to inspire good teamwork and a friendship enterprise        ║
 ║        within the group which I say must have worked because Malice back   ║
 ║        in its haydays was damn friendly and the members were easy going.   ║
 ║        By having a good karma within the group, I felt this would give     ║
 ║        Malice the edge over the rest.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How was Malice dominant while you were leading it at its peak?      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ASL█: Well, Malice did have problems with other couriering groups out     ║
 ║        there, but times have now changed.  While leading Malice along      ║
 ║        with Jake the Snake, Dorian, Lester, and company, everything went   ║
 ║        like clockwork.  Malice conquered Europe and certainly the UK,      ║
 ║        where there was no other competition.  So while Malice was          ║
 ║        expanding, I sought to make the group afilliated with more utils    ║
 ║        groups and gain strategic alliances with games groups.  Thus, I     ║
 ║        joined smaller utils groups like Darius and Pinnacle, and games     ║
 ║        groups such as Razor 1911 to ensure that Malice could and did       ║
 ║        spread the warez.  By having a small voice in this and that group   ║
 ║        and by establishing good team work between the releasing groups     ║
 ║        and Malice, I envisaged that the Malice future should have been     ║
 ║        bright.                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Should... but something unfortunate did happen to Malice.  What     ║
 ║        turned your friendly Malice members into bitter Malice members?     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ASL█: However, since the problems with Malice in the last two months,     ║
 ║        which may I add has been rectified by the current leaders, I have   ║
 ║        left all posts because I was getting tired of it and I wanted to    ║
 ║        finish my degree and do a Ph.D.  What happened to Malice with       ║
 ║        Amnesia and Rapier is public knowledge so I do not wish to follow   ║
 ║        that on.  Currently, since I am retired from all this, the only     ║
 ║        thing I occasionally do is act as the independent siteop on         ║
 ║        Enigma.                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Do you have plans to ever come back to Malice once you have         ║
 ║        finished your Ph.D.?                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ASL█: Well, that would be in 3 years time haha, I really can't say.  I    ║
 ║        do give some advice where needed, but I am tired of it all, and     ║
 ║        warez just doesn't interest me anymore.  Sure, the boards still     ║
 ║        retain some interest in the UK, where I like talking to the         ║
 ║        sysops, but otherwise, I find the act of downloading warez via      ║
 ║        molyturbo to be boring and basically unintresting.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Which field is your doctoral degree in?                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ASL█: My Ph.D. thesis will cover the development and the application of   ║
 ║        the Information Superhighway for the benefit of the people with     ║
 ║        special needs.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I have a special need for warez.  You can interview me for your     ║
 ║        doctoral thesis.  And I can go grab Darkhosis, he'll be your net    ║
 ║        monkey, and you can give him tests, and you can give me warez.      ║
 ║        Anyhow, what does Aslan stand for?  What does that word mean?       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ASL█: Haha, Aslan... well, if you're Turkish, Aslan would mean "lion."    ║
 ║        However, if you read C.S. Lewis' books, Aslan is the good lion who  ║
 ║        defends Narnia from the White Witch.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What do you think of the current state of the couriering scene?     ║
 ║        Do you think much has changed since you were an active leader of    ║
 ║        Malice?                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ASL█: The current state, well, that's a good question, if you split the   ║
 ║        couriering scene between boards and the Internet, it is obvious     ║
 ║        the attention is shitfing away from boards and toward the Internet  ║
 ║        for the sake that it it is easier to courier to and it's faster.    ║
 ║        The only group that I can think of that is like moffo dedicated to  ║
 ║        the boards is Everlast, possibly RISC on their HQs and once upon a  ║
 ║        time Malice on all their boards throughout the world.  But the      ║
 ║        emphasis appears to be on the Internet, so there seems to be a      ║
 ║        whole load of new Internet groups that appear week by week but I    ║
 ║        am probably mistaken.  This would also imply that the Internet      ║
 ║        scene appears to be reaching a saturation point as you can only     ║
 ║        have so many Internet groups out there.  As for when I ran Malice,  ║
 ║        I ensure that (tried to anyway) that my region, the UK, got its     ║
 ║        boards covered well and that our sites in Europe got covered.       ║
 ║        Also, before RISC took over Enigma and before Malice had its        ║
 ║        difficulties, Malice did support Enigma damn well.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: So, if the scene is saturated, does that mean that it is GOOD or    ║
 ║        BAD for the scene?                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ASL█: Well, maybe a new blood will bring new attitudes, proving to        ║
 ║        people that they don't have any ego problems and that they have an  ║
 ║        idea what teamwork is all about.  I think the scene could do with   ║
 ║        more of those types of people be it boards or the Internet.  Some   ║
 ║        people take the scene far too seriously and think you have to be    ║
 ║        elite and shit, and if you aren't elite, you have to be lame.  All  ║
 ║        I can say is, the scene embraces those who believe in the right     ║
 ║        ideology.  That's why when one of your writers, Trite, criticized   ║
 ║        Malice, I wrote a letter based on facts and sound arguments, not    ║
 ║        hysterical rantings and ravings that some people can give.  So      ║
 ║        yeah, new people with decent ideas might not be a bad idea.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Mind you Trite is no longer a part of RCN, and is no longer         ║
 ║        allowed to submit articles to RCN.  :)                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ASL█: Well Trite I think has improved certainly, but as I say, never      ║
 ║        judge a person by his or her cover until you know them.  As some    ║
 ║        people say, there is an alpha and there is an omega.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: And a Win 95 Beta... is there anything you would like to say to     ║
 ║        the scene before we adjourn?                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █ASL█: Let us all try and make what we have left in the scene a better     ║
 ║        place be it on the Internet or on a board.  Because if we don't,    ║
 ║        then we will be the final destructors of a hobby in which we all    ║
 ║        participate and enjoy.  Remember, it's only a hobby guys and        ║
 ║        girls.  Oh yeah, hi Steve, Duncan, Robert, Gary, Andreas, Philip,   ║
 ║        Marten, Tom, Justin, and everyone who knows me.  :)                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: How long have you been in the scene?  Once you became a part of     ║
 ║        the scene, how long was it before you started contributing to       ║
 ║        various groups, and how did you contribute to each of these         ║
 ║        groups?                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PSG█: I've been in the scene for about 7 years now.  I started with       ║
 ║        coding demos for demo groups, and some of those were Apocalypse,    ║
 ║        Neurotica, and Rebels.  This was back in 1991, after that, I left   ║
 ║        the demo scene and started coding viruses and some antiviruses,     ║
 ║        but I soon got bored and started cracking for the IBM/PC, I         ║
 ║        cracked/coded for Scotch which merged with PWA and then I left PWA  ║
 ║        to join Hybrid in 1993.  After that, I joined FairLight where I     ║
 ║        was cracking/organizing together with JBM.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Wasn't FairLight a group that specialized in releasing floppy       ║
 ║        games?  What happened after the floppy games scene died out?        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PSG█: Well, when the floppy games scene died out, I carried on to groups  ║
 ║        like TDT, Mortality and finally Prestige and Siege which I am in    ║
 ║        now.  Oh, I was also in Dynamix, but what the hell...               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Because you have been in the scene for such a long period of time,  ║
 ║        and because you've been active in various groups while being in     ║
 ║        the scene, you can be considered a good witness as to the scene     ║
 ║        happenings throughout your time.  In your expert opinion, what is   ║
 ║        happening to the scene now, how has the scene changed in the past,  ║
 ║        and how do you feel it will change in the future?                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PSG█: I've noticed that the competition is less now in the IBM/PC scene   ║
 ║        and loyality is becoming a thing of the past.  More and more        ║
 ║        people are more interested in their own success and they don't      ║
 ║        care about the groups they are a part of.  I think that the IBM/PC  ║
 ║        game scene is going to die out in the future because the games are  ║
 ║        getting bigger and bigger, and there aren't many good crackers      ║
 ║        around that can do the job.  It won't be worth ripping the games    ║
 ║        in the future.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Even if games get bigger in size, isn't it also logical to assume   ║
 ║        that transfer speeds between end downloaders will also increase at  ║
 ║        the same rate?  According to Krypto's indepth study on download     ║
 ║        times, which can be found in RCN #23, Krypto concluded that it      ║
 ║        took the average downloader 2 hours and 19 minutes to download the  ║
 ║        average 2 meg game in 1988 at 2400 b/s, and that it also takes the  ║
 ║        average downloader 2 hours and 19 minutes to download the average   ║
 ║        28 meg game in 1996 at 33.6 kb/s.  If that is true, then the size   ║
 ║        of the game is not going to effect the scene because transfer       ║
 ║        speeds will be going up as well.  How long do you think the IBM/PC  ║
 ║        scene will survive?                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PSG█: The scene will never die out totally, but it will be totally        ║
 ║        different and as we already can see the quality isn't going to be   ║
 ║        the most important goal.  I think the scene will survive 6-7 more   ║
 ║        years and then die out.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: When you speak that, "quality isn't going to be the most important  ║
 ║        goal," are you referring to games groups that are indifferent to    ║
 ║        quality?  If so, do you believe that there are games groups out     ║
 ║        there which do stand for quality?                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PSG█: Honestly?  I believe that there are no groups at the moment which   ║
 ║        are releasing 100% quality.  They are all so anxious to get the     ║
 ║        games out.  It's not like in the C64 time when the group that       ║
 ║        released the best cracks and trainers would win the release.  And   ║
 ║        I can understand how the groups feel since what you are releasing   ║
 ║        can never be 100% quality since you are ripping out a lot of        ║
 ║        stuff.  The games scene right now is doing a very good job          ║
 ║        advertising for game companies.  We release a ripped "demo" for     ║
 ║        the game so that everyone can test the game and if they really      ║
 ║        like it, they have to buy it to get everything.  It wasn't like     ║
 ║        that back in the floppy days, since you would get the *WHOLE*       ║
 ║        game.                                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Even in the floppy days, you could use the same reasoning and say   ║
 ║        that you never downloaded a *WHOLE* game because you never got to   ║
 ║        download the manual.  Then, in order to get the *WHOLE* game, you   ║
 ║        had to go out to buy the complete game at some software store.      ║
 ║        Anyhow, why is the IBM/PC scene so different from the long ago C64  ║
 ║        days?                                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PSG█: One of the reasons might be that people who bought a C64/AMIGA,     ║
 ║        bought it to *PLAY* on it.  It was all about games.  On the         ║
 ║        IBM/PC, 30 to 40% of the games have protection, if you can call it  ║
 ║        that.  Back in the C64 scene, the crackers were often the leaders   ║
 ║        of groups and they were doing most of the job.  They had the whole  ║
 ║        game.  Most IBM/PC crackers today don't receive the whole game,     ║
 ║        and when you know you're cutting on the quality when ripping the    ║
 ║        game, you don't really feel like making trainers, docs and nice     ║
 ║        intros for it.  And most importantly, the scene is split into 2     ║
 ║        scenes, a demo scene and a cracking scene.  Before, those two were  ║
 ║        the same and the cracking groups released quality demos too.        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How did these two scenes which were originally one, split off into  ║
 ║        two?                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PSG█: Since the values changed, a good release isn't a release with a     ║
 ║        nice intro.  Intros, demos, and maybe nice trainers became less     ║
 ║        important to the cracking scene.  So leaders soon stopped asking    ║
 ║        for intros because that was no longer an important issue for the    ║
 ║        leaders who wanted game releases.  The demo people understood the   ║
 ║        situation and left the cracking scene and started their own scene.  ║
 ║        And there is such a big difference between the demo scene and the   ║
 ║        cracking scene because you don't work a lot on one game/release.    ║
 ║        But a good demo might take over a year of work!                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: Ok, well, I'll be publishing this in this weeks issue of RCN #24,   ║
 ║        is there anything you would like to say to the scene in general?    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PUS█: Yes, there actually is.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Please do...                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PUS█: I just want everyone to know that the warez community will not be   ║
 ║        a success until the warez community stops.  Software publishers     ║
 ║        spend quite a while on the programming and creation of their        ║
 ║        software, and I fully back them.  If I like a title, I buy it.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Ok, we all encourage people to buy the software if they like it.    ║
 ║        Let me ask you this, how many sites have you taken out?  And do     ║
 ║        you know the names of the groups in which you've hurt?              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PUS█: I think it's upwards close to a thousand sites.  It's kinda hard    ║
 ║        to keep track of.  I especially like to delete quite a few of them  ║
 ║        NVC (New Vision Couriers) sites.  They are VERY LAME!               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What about big name courier groups?  Have any luck with those?      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PUS█: Actually, I did get a couple FATE (Fast Action Trade Exchange)      ║
 ║        sites.  I think I ended up getting kicked off after I got about     ║
 ║        half of the files on them.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I see.  You said up above that the warez community needs to stop,   ║
 ║        and that if you like a certain title you go buy it.  However, you   ║
 ║        just made a contradiction in terms.  You are in the warez scene to  ║
 ║        review software to see if you like it before you buy it.  Why       ║
 ║        don't you just get out of the warez scene and buy the software      ║
 ║        that sparks your interest?                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PUS█: Well, demo versions usually really suck, so warez is nice to do a   ║
 ║        quick play with, then delete.  But most people have huge warez      ║
 ║        collections and never buy the full versions.                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I see, but in a sense, you do the same thing as everyone else, so   ║
 ║        you too are supporting the scene.  Without it, you wouldn't know    ║
 ║        what to buy and what not to buy either.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █PUS█: I enjoy watching the idiots search for programs, it's funny as      ║
 ║        hell.  I don't care about them, I don't care if it lasts.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Well, it looks like we have yet another asshole on our hands.  This   ║
 ║  one seems to be even more destructive than our old pal Chris Carter.      ║

 ║      After he looks like you by spoofing you, he jumps into the channel    ║

 ║      One day, as I was checking my site lists, I came across a deleted     ║
 ║  site and then another and another.  It's not an uncommon thing for one    ║
 ║  but three in a row!  I noticed that they were all being deleted by the    ║
 ║  same person, the dreaded "Pussy."  People have speculated about whether   ║
 ║  warez is legal, and the answer is plain and simple NO.  But that's what   ║
 ║  makes warez all more fun.  Why would someone go and delete what is a      ║
 ║  passtime for millions of traders and "jobs" for crackers and coders?  Is  ║
 ║  it fun for them to torment us?  No one will know unless they know the     ║
 ║  few deleters out there.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I frequent a few warez channels and the occasional #WarezX channels,  ║
 ║  and all you hear is "That damn Pussy got site #2," or "That fucking       ║
 ║  Pussy, I hate his ass, he deleted the site I was on."  Or even the        ║
 ║  occasional playing of the Rip 96 file_id.diz.  I know I have said those   ║
 ║  things too, but is it really that bad?  Are these "lamers" really         ║
 ║  hurting us?  Is it causing the scene to fall apart?  The answer is NO to  ║
 ║  all three questions. Yes, I said NO.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Many don't realize it but they are helping us.  They are forcing      ║
 ║  more of us to find private sites and forcing curriers to find             ║
 ║  delete-restricted sites.  These things are not bad and infact they help   ║
 ║  the scene.  Private sites force non-eleetists to groups, which help the   ║
 ║  scene of course, and delete restricted sites force hackers to find        ║
 ║  better sites or work on their hacking skills so they can get root, and    ║
 ║  while doing that improving their skills.  Private sites are better and    ║
 ║  faster and delete-restricted sites help better group hackers.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      All-in-all, they are nothing more than a pro for the scene rather     ║
 ║  than a con.  Although it is annoying when they delete while your on a     ║
 ║  site, but most people carry more than one list with them.  I would like   ║
 ║  to say I do not encourage deleting, but bashing them will make it worse.  ║
 ║  Just let them be and they will quit.  If not, work around them and join   ║
 ║  a group.                                                                  ║

 ║ █RCN█: Coredump is relatively new to the scene, yet it has proven in the   ║
 ║        last few weeks that it can dish out games as well as the other      ║
 ║        more established games groups.  What has been the driving force     ║
 ║        behind Coredump's success?                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CDá█: Well, we are trying to bring some quality back into the scene, and  ║
 ║        stay professional about it too.  We have to remember that the       ║
 ║        scene is for fun, and we're all in it together.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How has Coredump been able to bring back quality to the scene?      ║
 ║        What makes Coredump stronger than other games groups, if that is    ║
 ║        the case?                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CDá█: As a new group, we are trying to stay as organized as possible.     ║
 ║        We strive to release working, non duped and properly cracked        ║
 ║        games, by testing them and making sure they are ready.              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Has it always been Coredump's policy to make sure that all          ║
 ║        Coredump releases are properly cracked?  Also, on the note of non   ║
 ║        duped games, could you mention a few Coredump releases that would   ║
 ║        be categorized as non duped and quality?                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CDá█: We are a new group, as you noted, and have had small problems in    ║
 ║        the past, but our policy is to make sure that the games are ready   ║
 ║        to play after installation, 100 percent.  I would categorize Quake  ║
 ║        as a quality release from Coredump.                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Coredump has made some mistakes in the past, and I would not        ║
 ║        consider them as small, but nonetheless, it's a thing of the past,  ║
 ║        and Coredump has most definitely improved upon itself.              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CDá█: A new group is bound to make mistakes, and we can use those         ║
 ║        mistakes as something that we will not let happen again.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: On the note of Quake, wasn't that already released by 2 other       ║
 ║        games groups before Coredump released its version?  Could           ║
 ║        Coredump's version of Quake be a dupe?                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CDá█: ROR supposedly released Quake Final, but it wasn't even the final.  ║
 ║        ROR's release of Quake can't be put in the same category as         ║
 ║        Coredump's release.  We're not talking about a FINAL Beta release   ║
 ║        of a game here.  Razor 1911 also released Quake, but it was         ║
 ║        released after Coredump had already released its version.  Our      ║
 ║        version was out before theirs.  Razor had a quality release, and a  ║
 ║        good job to them.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: A good job to Razor?  That's a good attitude to have, however, I    ║
 ║        don't think Razor is repaying your nice compliment with a nice      ║
 ║        compliment to you guys.  On the contrary, according to Perfect      ║
 ║        Form, Razor has been putting down Coredump for releasing Quake.     ║
 ║        Is Razor justified in its actions?                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CDá█: Personally, I have a lot of respect for Razor because I have seen   ║
 ║        them stay in the scene forever.  They have been putting out some    ║
 ║        of the best games, and have lasted through many generations of      ║
 ║        groups.  So I can see where Razor is coming from when a new group   ║
 ║        such as Coredump beats them to a big release such as Quake.  I do   ║
 ║        not put down Razor for this, because duping has been happening      ║
 ║        more often in the last year or so, and it is a major problem in     ║
 ║        the scene.  Razor has been a part of the scene for a long time,     ║
 ║        and could get the benefit of the doubt for that reason, which is    ║
 ║        unfortunate.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: So, you are saying that Razor duped Coredump, but most people will  ║
 ║        still believe that Coredump duped Razor because Razor is the older  ║
 ║        group?  Do you have any proof that Razor's release of Quake was a   ║
 ║        dupe?  After all, Razor's release of Quake was uploaded to all the  ║
 ║        major boards.                                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CDá█: Yes, that's what I am saying.  Although Razor may not admit it,     ║
 ║        most releases are taken care of on the Internet these days, and     ║
 ║        our release was on all the major sites first.  So it really comes   ║
 ║        down to the question, do boards or sites decide if a release is a   ║
 ║        dupe or not?  In the past, boards have been the key to judging      ║
 ║        whether a release is a dupe or not, but as the scene changes, so    ║
 ║        should the deciding factors.                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You also mentioned that dupes is becoming a much bigger problem in  ║
 ║        the scene lately, how does Coredump prevent itself from duping?     ║
 ║        And if/when Coredump does dupe, what is its immediate policy        ║
 ║        concerning the matter?                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CDá█: Well, we would obviously dupe check extensively.  We would usually  ║
 ║        also take our time and make sure that no other groups are going to  ║
 ║        release the same thing.  If we do dupe, we will admit it.  If we    ║
 ║        win on a release, we are not going to cower into a corner just      ║
 ║        because a much more established group releases the same thing.  We  ║
 ║        stand by our releases.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You described Razor as good group earlier because Razor has been    ║
 ║        in the scene for many "generations."  What do you mean by           ║
 ║        "generations" when you use that word to describe Razor?             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CDá█: I meant that Razor has lasted through many other overpowering       ║
 ║        groups such as INC, THG, Genesis, TDU-JAM!, etc.  Razor has         ║
 ║        managed to remain prominent and competitive through all the other   ║
 ║        legacies of game release groups.                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What are your future hopes and plans for Coredump?  How many        ║
 ║        generations do you believe Coredump will last before it either      ║
 ║        merges into another group or dies off?                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CDá█: Coredump hopes to establish itself as a quality releasing power in  ║
 ║        the scene, and to continue releasing good games.  I can't tell      ║
 ║        right now how long we will last, but we won't be short lived.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: I recently found that the courier group Lightning has nearly        ║
 ║        doubled in size in a short week, what was the cause of this?        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGT█: Yes, about 3 days ago, AOD (Angles of Death) merged with Lightning  ║
 ║        to cause an increase in members.                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Why did AOD decide to merge into Lightning?  Why did this merge     ║
 ║        happen, how long has this merged been planned before it was taken   ║
 ║        into effect?                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGT█: Well, from what I know, AOD decided to merge due to the fact that   ║
 ║        they weren't getting noticed by the scene and weren't couriering    ║
 ║        enough to keep them as a group.  The merge happened because they    ║
 ║        had no place to go or couldn't move forward because they weren't    ║
 ║        competing with any other of the courier groups in the scene.  I     ║
 ║        think it was planned a few days in advance.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You are now a senior member of Lightning, were you a senior before  ║
 ║        the merge?  Were you a leader in AOD when AOD merged into           ║
 ║        Lightning, or have you always been a member of Lightning?           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGT█: Well, when I started in Lightning, I started as an IRC              ║
 ║        Coordinator, which was a senior postion, and yes, I was a senior    ║
 ║        when the merge occured.  I wasn't really a part in helping make     ║
 ║        the merge take place.  Darksoul had a major role with getting the   ║
 ║        merge to happen.                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How has Lightning's role in the scene changed since the merge?      ║
 ║        Has the merge made Lightning a more respectable courier group?      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGT█: The merge has made Lightning a more powerful couriering force in    ║
 ║        the scene.  Before the merge, we lacked couriers, and this merge    ║
 ║        has brought us more couriers which means we'll be doing a better    ║
 ║        job on sites and offering.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How did the merge take place, were all AOD couriers accepted into   ║
 ║        Lightning, or did very few AOD couriers make it into Lightning?     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGT█: Most of the couriers made it into Lightning, the people who didn't  ║
 ║        want to merge were given a chance to join, but there were very few  ║
 ║        people who didn't want to merge, so we gained a lot of new          ║
 ║        couriers out of the merge.  The merge was decided in channel #AOD   ║
 ║        where all the decisions were made.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Were there any ex-AOD seniors or leaders that are now leaders in    ║
 ║        Lightning?  Or was this strictly a group takeover, where Lightning  ║
 ║        absorbed AOD?  In other words, do ex-AOD seniors or leaders have a  ║
 ║        say in what goes on in Lightning?                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGT█: No, the highest postion that any of the AOD members got were        ║
 ║        coordinators, and senior FTP/IRC traders, but most of them became   ║
 ║        couriers and a few artist also.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You freely claim that Lightning is now a new powerful force in the  ║
 ║        scene, but what can Lightning do to back up the scene's             ║
 ║        expectations?  What makes Lightning different from the various      ║
 ║        courier groups out there, what makes Lightning stand out?           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGT█: Well, now that we have more man power, we're more able to           ║
 ║        acomplish more goals and standards.  Lightning has been             ║
 ║        reoraganized since the merge and is ready to show what it can do.   ║
 ║        We're different because of the fact that we have experienced        ║
 ║        leaders and couriers.  Most of our seniors and highers are from     ║
 ║        various different groups in the IBM/PC scene which makes them very  ║
 ║        experienced and some have also run their own gorups at one time.    ║
 ║        I think the name and the names of the people running the group      ║
 ║        makes the group stand out even more.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What are the future plans for Lightning?  Is Lightning planning to  ║
 ║        head up its own offer channel modeling itself after groups such as  ║
 ║        FATE (Fast Action Trade Exchange) and Motiv8, or is Lightning       ║
 ║        planning to stick to board/site couriering, thus modeling itself    ║
 ║        after groups such as Amnesia and RISC (Rise in Superior             ║
 ║        Couriering)?                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGT█: For now, I don't think Lightning is going to open a leech channel   ║
 ║        due to the fact that most members don't want one and also because   ║
 ║        there's no to have one.  Those channels only help to try and get    ║
 ║        the group more respect, by having an offer channel, which I think   ║
 ║        is a waste of time and energy since there are so many now.  We're   ║
 ║        planning to get into more serious FTP sites and get up on the FTP   ║
 ║        charts.                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: The FTP charts, to what are you referring to?                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGT█: Well, everyone knows that RCN displays the best couriers on the     ║
 ║        Internet, and so Lightning would like to get up there on the RCN    ║
 ║        charts.                                                             ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      There have been some questions about the Angels of Death (AOD) and    ║
 ║  Lightning merge.  I hope to answer some of these questions in the         ║
 ║  following paragraphs.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Because of school and other commitments, Nightsky, President of AOD,  ║
 ║  felt he could not give the group the stable leadership that it deserves.  ║
 ║  However, he did not want to see the group, that he and others worked so   ║
 ║  hard to establish, just die and be forgotten.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Fearing that the group might die after losing the strong leadership   ║
 ║  of Nightsky and Morbid, who left because of personal reasons, the option  ║
 ║  of merging into Lightning was presented to the members.  After a lengthy  ║
 ║  discussion, a vote was taken and 75% of the AOD membership voted to       ║
 ║  merge into Lightning.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      There was a general consensus that Lightning has strong, stable       ║
 ║  leadership and an excellent Internet team, while AOD has excellent FTP    ║
 ║  and BBS divisions.  Combining the two groups will make Lightning an       ║
 ║  unstopable force in the scene.                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      When asked about the merge and what it will do for Lightning,         ║
 ║  Darksoul, the Lightning President said, "It is the best move that both    ║
 ║  groups could have made.  It gives us (Lightning) what we have been        ║
 ║  lacking for the last few weeks and makes us even stronger than ever       ║
 ║  before.  We now have stronger leadership (if that's possible), an         ║
 ║  improved IRC/FTP division, and an absolutely oustanding BBS division.  I  ║
 ║  look for us to be one of the top courier groups very very soon!"          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Nightsky had the following to say about the merge, "I hope, thanks    ║
 ║  to the input of the AOD couriers and members, that Lightning will be a    ║
 ║  ruling force in the scene in a short time."                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █CCA█: Well, I decided to start CCA after THC (The Hardened Criminals)     ║
 ║        decided to go on as a release group.  CCA was brought up powerful,  ║
 ║        and still is powerful.  CCA started on the 28th of June.  CCA       ║
 ║        started small and is growing bigger and more influential as a       ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CCA█: Well, I was senior in THC, and I have a big past of affiliations.   ║
 ║        I have seen a lot of people manage, and I try to mimic their ways.  ║
 ║        I do it my way as well, but I use a little bit of every leader I    ║
 ║        have been around.  There is really not much I can do that no one    ║
 ║        else can do except for leading very well.  I consider myself a      ║
 ║        good leader and I think my group does too because I keep things     ║
 ║        organized 100% and so on.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How is CCA managed, are you the sole leader of CCA?  And how do     ║
 ║        you keep things in CCA 100% organized?                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CCA█: CCA is managed by me and the CCA Council.  Seniors take a little    ║
 ║        part in it as well.  CCA is organized in teams.  We have teams      ║
 ║        taking 2 sites or more, those teams just focus on those sites.      ║
 ║        For example, Team A takes on the WHQ and the US-HQ, team B takes    ║
 ║        on the EHQ and the Norway HQ, team C takes on two other distro      ║
 ║        sites, and so on.  There are 4 teams in CCA, they each are          ║
 ║        dedicated, and willing.  I am just around to keep everyone inline,  ║
 ║        and working.  If they don't work and I have no use for them, they   ║
 ║        get kicked out.  I have a lot of good and dedicated people like     ║
 ║        Toosmooth, the CCA Vice President, and Fabfive a very good council  ║
 ║        member, and Dupe, who all play very big rolls in CCA.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Your team seems to be presented very well, how did you come about   ║
 ║        with such a strong team?                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CCA█: It sort of came about as Midhack's idea.  Midhack is a very good    ║
 ║        courier, and he has alot of good ideas, and his idea really helped  ║
 ║        out CCA with me modifying his idea.  Midhack is also CCA's Head     ║
 ║        Courier.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: In making CCA a good courier group, it must be doing something      ║
 ║        that makes it special or extraordinary, what might that be?  What   ║
 ║        makes CCA different from the myriad of other courier groups out     ║
 ║        there?  What separates it from being second class?                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CCA█: CCA isn't like any other courier group because we are mainly made   ║
 ║        up of friends and leaders.  What I would think of CCA that makes    ║
 ║        it special is its name Central Crime Association.  CCA is sort of   ║
 ║        a gang, not a courier group.  It's just a group of people hanging   ║
 ║        out supporting the warez community, we try as much as possible to   ║
 ║        get our warez to the public, we don't just trade among ourselves,   ║
 ║        we also trade with public people.  And that's the truth.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I never said you lied.  Anyway, are there any plans for CCA to      ║
 ║        start up its own offer channel following the footsteps of groups    ║
 ║        such as FATE (Fast Action Trade Exchange) and Motiv8?               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CCA█: We already have an offer channel shared with other courier groups.  ║
 ║        We ran #THCfiles until THC died.  What a bummer, and now, CCA       ║
 ║        started and other groups started a thing called CrimeXnet, our      ║
 ║        offer channel is in channel #Xnet, a very good offer channel        ║
 ║        indeed.  CCA's offer team frequents there very well.  However, our  ║
 ║        IRC Head Courier, manages all the things that pass through #Xnet,   ║
 ║        he is CCA's representative for #Xnet, and the other groups have     ║
 ║        their representatives as well.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: What is your view on the Razor/Coredump release of Quake last       ║
 ║        week?                                                               ║

 ║ █FBI█: Razor duped.  It was close, but Coredump beat Razor to the boards   ║
 ║        and to the Internet.  Rumors went around that the Coredump release  ║
 ║        of Quake did not work, but that is not true.  People only say that  ║
 ║        because while we were spreading Quake, one of the copies had 3      ║
 ║        disks screwed up and they where distributed incorrectly to several  ║
 ║        popular sites.  Those disks have since been deleted and replaced    ║
 ║        by working ones.                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You claim that Coredump beat Razor to the boards AND the Internet?  ║
 ║        I've been hearing that Coredump beat Razor to the Internet, but     ║
 ║        NOT on boards, can you explain this?                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █FBI█: Razor got it to their boards before we did, but we got it to A      ║
 ║        board first.  We also got it to the FTP sites LA and BBX before     ║
 ║        Razor had it on ANY board.  I personally have nothing against       ║
 ║        Razor and I think that they are a GREAT group, but they lost on     ║
 ║        this one.                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Ok, but do you acknowledge that Razor won on the Internet, even     ║
 ║        though a release is usually judged by who gets it on the boards     ║
 ║        first?                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █FBI█: No, Razor definitely lost on the Internet.  You may see it on a     ║
 ║        few sites because the siteops don't have the balls to delete a      ║
 ║        Razor release.  Plain and simple.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How many disks of the Coredump release made it to the Internet by   ║
 ║        the time Razor put one disk up?                                     ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: REALLY???                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █FBI█: Yes.                                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I have tested the Coredump version of Quake.  It's very good and I  ║
 ║        have found no bugs, at least not yet, but it took me forever to     ║
 ║        find.  However, I could find the Razor version everywhere, why      ║
 ║        would this be if Coredump's version was uploaded first and Razor's  ║
 ║        version is a dupe?  Wouldn't the siteops nuke Razor's version       ║
 ║        since it was a dupe?                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █FBI█: The reason for that is because most siteops don't know about        ║
 ║        Coredump and they do know Razor.  So they go with Razor because     ║
 ║        they don't know any better.  Most siteops don't have the balls to   ║
 ║        nuke a Razor release.  They just think that Razor is perfect        ║
 ║        quality and that they never dupe.  Also, Coredump's reputation has  ║
 ║        had a checkered past so siteops that do know about Coredump are     ║
 ║        apprehensive to leave ours on and nuke Razor's.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Are you referring to the uncracked NHL Power Play released by       ║
 ║        Coredump as the checkered past?                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █FBI█: Yup...                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: If you did dupe Razor, and I'm not saying you did, then why did     ║
 ║        you do it?                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █FBI█: We did NOT dupe Razor!  If you think so, you are WRONG!  We had it  ║
 ║        first and I believe Razor has come to terms with it somewhat        ║
 ║        though they are still upset they were beat.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Also, this may seem strange, but there seems to be a Napalm         ║
 ║        file.diz in the Coredump release of Quake, can you tell me why?     ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: In RCN #24, Stank-e makes the claim that the offering channel       ║
 ║        #Phatfiles was started and controlled mainly by Core.  It became    ║
 ║        obvious that soon after, NGT (Next Generation Traders) became       ║
 ║        angry about what he said, why is that?                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █NGT█: Because of the fact that he claims Core started it, when they did   ║
 ║        not.  This has happened several times, I don't put all of this      ║
 ║        hard work in for nothing.  I offered everyday when it opened, and   ║
 ║        asked all my friends to also.  I made it what it is today, and      ║
 ║        Core jumped on the bandwagon after channel #Phatfiles was already   ║
 ║        well established.  NGT members have gotten none of the credit for   ║
 ║        all our hard work.                                                  ║

 ║ █RCN█: Core and NGT still have gotten along great, from what I have seen,  ║
 ║        does this threaten Core/NGT relations in any way?  If so, what do   ║
 ║        you plan on doing about it?                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █NGT█: I have nothing against Core, but shit like this gets me pissed      ║
 ║        off.  Core members have been setting topics in channel #Phatfiles   ║
 ║        that make it seem like they own it, "[Core] Phatfiles [Core]."  I   ║
 ║        like to keep the channel a non-group based channel, like neutral    ║
 ║        grounds.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: In a previous issue, you say that RCN may have played a small part  ║
 ║        in leading people to believe that channel #Phatfiles was run by     ║
 ║        Core, can you explain how that is exactly?                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █NGT█: Well, previously in RCN in the Warez-IQ Quiz, you guys made a       ║
 ║        screw up in the question that asked who runs channel #Phatfiles.    ║
 ║        You then listed Core, FATE (Fast Action Trade Exchange), and        ║
 ║        Motiv8 as the answers, and Core being the right one.  The channel   ║
 ║        isn't run by Core, like channel #Exceed is run by FATE and channel  ║
 ║        #M8Leech is run by Motiv8, channel #Phatfiles is made up of         ║
 ║        several groups.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Stank-e claims that Palm, who used to run channel #M8Leech,         ║
 ║        decided to start the channel #Phatfiles.  He also claims that       ║
 ║        because Palm was in Core at the time, Core runs the channel, what   ║
 ║        do you have to say about that?                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █NGT█: Core, NGT, and the other groups run it now, but NGT started it.     ║
 ║        Primarily, me and Palm started it.  I brought the DCC offering      ║
 ║        people and Palm ran the bots, that's how it should be known.        ║
 ║        However, Stank-e is making this very hard, by spreading             ║
 ║        misinformation.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║        story Dee.                                                          ║

 ║         as it comes, but it was verified about 2 to 3 minutes ago.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  <Anon> This information is from a reliable source in the 416/905 area     ║
 ║         codes.  Well, if you want some more information, the RCMP formed   ║
 ║         a group a few months ago to stop the piracy in Canada.  6 months   ║
 ║         ago in Montreal, 12 boards went down, some time after that, they   ║
 ║         formed the coalition, and now as it looks, they are hitting        ║
 ║         Toronto.  There are always busts of this nature around here.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  <Anon> Well, I don't know about that much about the coalition, but the    ║
 ║         RCMP formed something a few months ago to try to end the piracy.   ║
 ║         All the elites of 416/905 should keep an eye out though.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Digitex> When the RCMP raided Beyond Akira, do you know how much warez   ║
 ║            was found?                                                      ║

 ║  <Anon2> Well, there were approximately 140 gigs worth of warez found.  I  ║
 ║          am not sure as to the exact meggage, but the information about    ║
 ║          the 140 gigs was leaked out by a X-Force Senior, so I do not      ║

 ║      Well, that's it for the comments.  Here are some of my own            ║
 ║  speculations on this.  If it's true that the RCMP is coming down on       ║
 ║  Toronto as hard as it seems, then the 416 and 905 area codes had REALLY   ║
 ║  better watch out.  I realize that it's sometimes much more difficult to   ║
 ║  bust smaller boards, but at the same time, they are all run by people,    ║
 ║  and the RCMP or FBI or whatever can get to them just as easily.  So, if   ║
 ║  you're running a board in the 416 or 905 area codes, I highly suggest     ║
 ║  you lay low for a while.                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Well it finally happened at 7:45 am today Tuesday 30 July 1996 the    ║
 ║  R.C.M.P. and the Toronto Metro Task force Stormed the Fortress's of the   ║
 ║  Great Pharoah's they attacked the Pyramid's and tore down the Great       ║
 ║  walls ....and what did they find???? you ask, well they found the great   ║
 ║  Pharoah getting ready for work and they also found the Awesome board      ║
 ║  AKIRA up and running and recieving files at the rate of 2 Gigs a          ║
 ║  week.....WOW what a snag for the moronic police force...damn amazing      ║
 ║  that they caught the guy after only 4 years and what is more amazing is   ║
 ║  that he only lives 300 yards away from a police station. Makes you        ║
 ║  wonder how much easier could Pharoah have made it for them??? But none    ║
 ║  the less they finally caught on ...:) well people as of today we have     ║
 ║  lost the best board in the 416/905 area code and the best board in the    ║
 ║  world.A great loss to the pirate community.                               ║

 ║      All I have to say is that they better dig up a good expert that       ║

 ║  <Grimm> Hey guys, have you seen the RCN source code flying around?  What  ║
 ║          do you guys think of that?                                        ║

 ║  <AtmaWepon> Grimm, it's gay, and there's a virus in it.  But aside from   ║
 ║              that, no biggie.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Grimm> I used it, there's no virus.  It works fine.  I scanned it and    ║
 ║          there is no virus.  Actually, I am the one who released it.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  *** Grimm is now known as Trite                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Trite> The only reason why people read RCN is because of Xenon's         ║
 ║          coding.  Xenon is the only thing holding RCN together.  Maybe     ║
 ║          now RCN will get a clue that you guys shouldn't make fun of       ║
 ║          people in your pathetic Mad-RCN.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <AtmaWepon> Trite, so, you copied the RCN compiler and you think you're   ║
 ║              like leet or something.  Again, so what, so now a bunch of    ║
 ║              lamers can get RCN going.  Oh boo, its nice to know that the  ║
 ║              RCN compiler you released is the old version that was used    ║
 ║              only until issue 13.  It's not the RCN source code.  I don't  ║
 ║              see why you fail to understand that it's the RCN compiler,    ║
 ║              not the source code.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Trite> RCN is the lamest muck-raking pile of collective bullshit I've    ║
 ║          ever seen.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <AtmaWepon> Then stop reading it.  Trite, how hard can it be?  If you     ║
 ║              don't like it, don't read it.  Nobody is asking you to.  Get  ║
 ║              a fucking life.                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Trite> The point being, I never did anything to provoke such an attack   ║
 ║          to RCN, nor did my friends.  So I did something about it and I    ║
 ║          released the old source code.  If RCN continues, I will get the   ║
 ║          new source code and release that too.  This is your warning.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <AtmaWepon> Anyhow, I doubt you'll see the RCN compiler again.  After     ║
 ║              this, we'll make it secret as hell.  No one but Xenon         ║
 ║              himself will ever see it.                                     ║

 ║  <Trite> I will keep releasing your RCN source code if RCN doesn't stop    ║
 ║          its Mad-RCN where it pokes fun of other people.  Heh... this is   ║

 ║      Only Xenon, Hitex, and I were supposed to have been given access to   ║
 ║  copies of the RCN compiler.  However, near the demise of the first RCN    ║
 ║  at issue 13, Road Rebel was made an editor of RCN and was thus given a    ║
 ║  copy of the RCN compiler to continue RCN's legacy.  Road Rebel then       ║
 ║  asked Entropy to help run RCN with him because they were good friends at  ║
 ║  the time.  Since Entropy would also be considered an editor, he too       ║
 ║  received a copy of the RCN compiler from Road Rebel.  However, a few      ║
 ║  weeks later, Entropy uh.. "broke up" with Road Rebel, and their           ║
 ║  relationship has failed since.  After their break up, Entropy has never   ║
 ║  stopped harrassing Road Rebel.  As far as I am aware, Entropy continues   ║
 ║  to harrass Road Rebel daily by doing immature IRC acts to Road Rebel      ║
 ║  here and there.                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In these last couple weeks, to stand up for Road Rebel against        ║
 ║  Entropy's immature acts, I too it upon myself to make fun of Entropy by   ║
 ║  having Mad-RCN utter the words in my chipmunked voice (through Sound      ║
 ║  Blaster), "Entropy is a fag."  I called Entropy a fag because in many     ║
 ║  ways, he is a fag.  However, at present, he doesn't seem to be able to    ║
 ║  leave me alone either, and he constantly messages me on IRC, "Hi Rebel    ║
 ║  Chicken, you're my hero!"  I shutter to think of what Entropy messages    ║
 ║  to Road Rebel.  Road Rebel is too ashamed to mention them to me.          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Anyhow, it also happens to be that Trite and Entropy live in the      ║
 ║  same area code, and they are good friends in real life.  So Entropy dug   ║
 ║  up the RCN compiler from months ago, and gave it to his friend Trite,     ║
 ║  who also happens to be a half decent coder.  Now, from this point on, I   ║
 ║  can only speculate that Entropy asked Trite to use the RCN compiler to    ║
 ║  make a fake RCN issue.  After all, Trite and Entropy here have access to  ║
 ║  a very secretive RCN compiler which they could use to make a very         ║
 ║  realistic looking RCN issue.  However, since Trite could not figure out   ║
 ║  how to use the RCN compiler, and it was of no use to either of them       ║
 ║  anymore, Trite simply trojaned/virused the RCN compiler and released it   ║
 ║  to the masses in an attempt to hurt RCN.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Needless to say, neither Trite nor Entropy will ever see the likes    ║
 ║  of the updated RCN compilers.  As a precaution, I then asked Hitex to     ║
 ║  give Entropy a phone call, and Hitex has taken care of everything since   ║
 ║  then.  And as a further precaution, I'll be snail mailing Entropy a       ║
 ║  little letter.  The content of the letter is of no relevance to anyone    ║
 ║  but Trite and Entropy.  However, if I do think my letter is funny, it'll  ║
 ║  find a spot in future publications the secret Mad-RCN.                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In some ways, Trite and Entropy has taught RCN how to keep certain    ║
 ║  securities in a dimmer light, and thanks be to them.  However, Hitex and  ║
 ║  I have been comtemplating on releasing a public version of an older RCN   ║
 ║  compiler, and if we decide to do so, it'll of course, be a RCN compiler   ║
 ║  that is non trojaned/virused and should also contain interactive          ║
 ║  features that are an improvement on the one that is currently available.  ║
 ║  The current RCN compiler used is 1.2 megabytes zipped, and the            ║
 ║  trojaned/virused version released by Trite is approximately 128 kbs       ║
 ║  zipped.                                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║        than the previous 2 months for sure, but still, Razor loses again   ║
 ║        to Prestige.                                                        ║

 ║  <TRC> Merits?  What merits?  I wasn't aware that you had any.  I didn't   ║
 ║        think you were capable of intelligent conversation.  Sure thing     ║
 ║        buddy, the flavor of the month is Prestige, and last time I         ║
 ║        checked, we are steam rolling Razor's ass.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  <TRC> Sure thing buddy, that wasn't your mantra last month, so I'm        ║
 ║        fairly certain that the only reason you haven't put out a little    ║
 ║        more variety this month is a result of your inability to beat us    ║
 ║        to even the small titles.  The only games you guys win on are the   ║
 ║        ones you get early and that's pretty sad.  We've slammed the door   ║
 ║        on Razor EVERYWHERE else.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Druidkin> Sorry TRC, but Razor has standards.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <TRC> Razor will release anything it can get its sorry hands on.          ║
 ║        Unfortunately, it can't get its hands on much.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Druidkin> Stick with your budget releases.  People want quality, and     ║
 ║             for that, they come to Razor.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <TRC> Sure, we'll stick with our budget, and if people want quality they  ║
 ║        can grab the Prestige release of Links LS.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Druidkin> You've got more ego, I'll agree with that.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <TRC> Believe whatever you like, Prestige has got more experience         ║
 ║        dumbass.  Razor's a rookie group.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  <Tok> TRC, do you think Razor is dead?                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <TRC> Druidkin, I feel the need to point out to you that I don't give a   ║
 ║        rat's ass what ANYONE thinks about me in the scene.  I am only in   ║
 ║        the scene to win, and I will do so.  Razor's not dead yet, but it   ║
 ║        will be by the end of the year.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ╟────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────╢
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      TRC claims the Links LS golf game as one of Prestige's quality        ║
 ║  releases.  For information on that release, refer to RCN #23 and you      ║
 ║  will notice that Links LS was anything but quality.  It was badly ripped  ║
 ║  and if TRC has to fall back on a badly ripped Prestige release, then it   ║
 ║  must mean that Prestige does not have much to fall on these days.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      On the note of Razor, TRC claims that Razor is a rookie group, I      ║
 ║  don't know what kind of crack he's smoking, but last time I checked,      ║
 ║  Razor is a hell of a lot more established than Prestige.  Razor has been  ║
 ║  around long before Prestige got its first P, and that's a fact he cannot  ║
 ║  argue.  Where does he come up with this stuff?  He must have been         ║
 ║  seriously baked.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      On the note of quality, I must agree with Druidkin, people care       ║
 ║  about quality, not quantity.  I can name numerous 40+ disk Prestige       ║
 ║  releases that have turned out to be a waste of time because they were     ║
 ║  either freeware crap, or they were releases that were not properly        ║
 ║  packaged and thus, was not in a working condition.  Razor is far          ║
 ║  perfect, and I can numerous fuckups by Razor as well, but when comparing  ║
 ║  cdrips by Razor and cdrips by Prestige, it goes hands down that Razor is  ║
 ║  much more experienced and careful with their releases.  TRC needs to      ║
 ║  review his own group before he starts passing judgements on how his       ║
 ║  group is so much this and that better than this and that.                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      However, TRC does not stop there, he goes even farther by claiming    ║
 ║  that Razor will disband by the end of the year.  Let's see, at present,   ║
 ║  it's August of 1996 and Razor has been around since uh... October of      ║
 ║  1984.  Let's see now, who here thinks Razor will last a few more months   ║
 ║  hey?  Don't raise your hand, that was a rhetorical question.  Anyhow,     ║
 ║  who knows, maybe TRC meant to say that Prestige will disband by the end   ║
 ║  of the year.  After all, if you look at TRC's track record, nearly every  ║
 ║  games group he's been a part of in the last 2 years did very well for a   ║
 ║  few months and then went on a fuck up rampage shortly after he joined     ║
 ║  (i.e. Eclipse, Dynamix, Hybrid, etc.).                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Since there seems to be a large interest in the newly merged group    ║
 ║  Core, I would like to tell you some things about Core, opinions in Core,  ║
 ║  and future plans from 3 members of Core.  There will also be a fourth     ║
 ║  member, me, since I am also in Core, I will add my opinions where I feel  ║
 ║  necesarry.                                                                ║

 ║  The Beginning                                                             ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Core started off as a merger between the two courier groups Total     ║
 ║  Kaos and Violation.  Core still has two presidents, Edge and Stank-e.     ║
 ║  Edge will explain the merger for us :                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <DaPhreak> What excactly caused the merger between Total Kaos and         ║
 ║             Violation?                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Edge> Well, we had similar members and we did the same shit, so I        ║
 ║         thought it'd be best if the two groups worked together.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      A rather straight foward explanation, but it is the reason.  Core     ║
 ║  has been around for about 2 or 3 months now, and Core is making some      ║
 ║  waves in the hypothetical trading pool of the scene.  The IRC Team        ║
 ║  concept, thought up by Edge and Stank-e has been a massive help to        ║
 ║  channel #Phatfiles which is an offering channel for tons of other small   ║
 ║  courier groups.  Core also has very high expectations of their new        ║
 ║  members.                                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Dallion> We keep up the tight screening process for new memebers so we   ║
 ║            can't just let everyone into the group.  Applicants must first  ║
 ║            prove themselves capable of being a part of Core.  This method  ║
 ║            has helped keep out all the 10 year old kids who just want to   ║
 ║            leech.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Core has moved up to the ranks of the other top courier groups.       ║
 ║  Core's top FTP courier SaltyDogg, has been consistently moving more and   ║
 ║  more megs each week.  He is averaging 500 megs per week, and is moving    ║
 ║  more and more each week.  This isn't behind the standards set by some of  ║
 ║  the other groups, and will get Core at the top of the heap in a short     ║
 ║  time.                                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <DaPhreak> What, in your opinion, should be done in Core in order to      ║
 ║             make it one of the top courier groups?                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <SaltyDogg> I think Core needs to focus on moving warez and getting its   ║
 ║              name out in the scene more.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <DaPhreak> What are your opinions of the scene that Core has to reach?    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <SaltyDogg> I think that the scene has too many ego problems.  Everyone   ║
 ║              thinks that they are the best courier or that they are in     ║
 ║              the best group.  I believe that people like that should       ║
 ║              concentrate more on moving warez and releasing quality        ║
 ║              warez.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I myself think that people in the scene do have ego problems.         ║
 ║  Nobody likes to see these petty arguments such as, "We are better, your   ║
 ║  group is nothing but full of lamers!"  But I mean, RCN points out when a  ║
 ║  group outright messes up at something, and that's acceptable, but I       ║
 ║  don't think that the people writing letters to RCN should use their       ║
 ║  letters as an instigator for some of these fights.  RCN is here to        ║
 ║  congratulate the people who are working hard and to point out the things  ║
 ║  that people do wrong.  I feel that this article should be informative to  ║
 ║  those who have not yet heard of Core, and it should also be informative   ║
 ║  to those who are set out on starting their own courier group.  This       ║
 ║  above was not just 3 short interviews, but rather, it was a collection    ║
 ║  of quotes from interviews which I employed.  The rest of the article is   ║
 ║  going to be written using the information I gained from the intervews.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Core is one of the few young courier groups out there that is         ║
 ║  showing potential in its ability to stay alive.  Core won't just          ║
 ║  disappear from the scene in a few weeks, it's here, and it's here to      ║
 ║  stay.  Core's IRC Team concept will revolutionize the way the average     ║
 ║  downloader will receive his or her warez.  The planned 24/7 bots, 5 to    ║
 ║  10 bots on each team, focusing on separate categories (i.e. 0 day,        ║
 ║  games/utils) offering in channel #Phatfiles will definitely help Core     ║
 ║  change the way the end users get warez.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Core is made up of a team of dedicated couriers, not a group made up  ║
 ║  of inactive members or leechers that don't play a "team game."  Core has  ║
 ║  an intricate working team, yes a team.  Everyone has a job, and they do   ║
 ║  that job.  If someone doesn't perform up to par, a new person will get a  ║
 ║  chance to do that job.  Core has a lot of IRC couriers, I know that       ║
 ║  because I am one of them.  But, IRC is where you are at.  This is what    ║
 ║  you guys want, and Core stands behind it.  Core stands behind the whole   ║
 ║  concept of mass couriering.  Distribution.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      First off, I won't incriminate myself in this article (I take the     ║
 ║  5th!), but I will explain my little experience with almost being busted.  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In November of last year, I, along with a couple friends were         ║
 ║  implicated by a 15 year old fuck by the name of Abe Ingersoll in Peoria,  ║
 ║  Illinois.  He goes by a few handles on IRC, namely ^abe^, possibly        ║
 ║  ^pest^ (his alias is pestilence, and no, not anyone in the scene that we  ║
 ║  all know of).  His host almost always includes "*!*ingers*."  If you      ║
 ║  know him, ban/kick/kill him (literally) or something.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Anyway, he was caught basically red-handed with numerous credit card  ║
 ║  receipts, carded merchandise, and t-philez about carding and shit.        ║
 ║  Well, in order to save his own little ass, we were implicated.  With us   ║
 ║  being local and all, and the cops freaking out about all the shit they    ║
 ║  found (mainly all the t-philez), me and a friend suddenly found           ║
 ║  ourselves called to the cop shop for "our version" of the story.          ║
 ║  Luckily, we knew what was happening and talked beforehand in great        ║
 ║  detail about everything (minus the 15 year old fuck).  I was straight     ║
 ║  with the cop when I told him that I'd been through the whole "gestapo     ║
 ║  interrogation" before, and to skip it.  I really wasn't in the mood for   ║
 ║  a pig to be yelling in my face that day.  In turn, he told me that I      ║
 ║  would not be placed under arrest today (bah, yeah right, like I haven't   ║
 ║  been told that before or nothing), and gave me a smoke.  :)               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Ok, I thought, he's going to go the "I'm your friend" route with me.  ║
 ║  Mr. Pig talked in detail about how he had already talked with the FBI,    ║
 ║  but the Secret Service were the ones who liked to handle computer         ║
 ║  crimes, and they were debating whether to pick up the investigation.      ║
 ║  The cops had information that could've only been gained through Abe or a  ║
 ║  phone tap.  Anyway, to make a long story short, I talked with the cop,    ║
 ║  and my friend got the "gestapo" route (sucked to be him).  Another        ║
 ║  interesting note is that my friend talked to the cops first.  The cop     ║
 ║  actually told him that *I* had already told him (the cop) all about how   ║
 ║  he (my friend) was the guilty party BEFORE I even talked to the cops!     ║
 ║  My friend knew better through our constant communication, kept his cool,  ║
 ║  and stuck to our story.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The cop was right though, I wasn't arrested, in fact, no one but the  ║
 ║  15 year old was.  Nothing about warez ever entered the picture.           ║
 ║  However, I do suspect that my phone along with my friend's phone was      ║
 ║  tapped at one point in time, and my friend actually did have a white van  ║
 ║  with green-G plates tail him for a few days.  From what I understand,     ║
 ║  the 15 year old has already been through the court thing, and got         ║
 ║  probation or something, because I just saw him on IRC the other day.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now, all the time this kid was carding, he kept saying, "Oh, I'm      ║
 ║  only 15, the worst they can do to me is put me in juvie until I'm 18."    ║
 ║  I explained to him several times that I was already on Intense Probation  ║
 ║  for felony convictions, and that if I was arrested, I'd go to the joint   ║
 ║  for several years, and he would be dead once I got out.  Unfortunately,   ║
 ║  that didn't stop him from rolling over on me for one second.  So, to put  ║
 ║  it all in perspective :                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      1.) If you're of legal age, NEVER trust a minor.  NEVER NEVER NEVER!  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      2.) If you're already on probation, stick to warez, much safer.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      3.) NEVER talk on the phone about anything illegal if there's even a  ║
 ║          remote reason to suspect your line is tapped, better safe than    ║
 ║          sorry!                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      4.) I might be mistaken, but I believe that FedEx is still            ║
 ║          considered a private company.  Meaning that if you use them to    ║
 ║          ship your carded stuff, you can't be busted for mail fraud as     ║
 ║          well if/when you do get busted.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      5.) If you are called in for questioning, keep your wits about you,   ║
 ║          and remember that cops will *LIE* to manipulate you into          ║
 ║          thinking exactly what they want you to think.  Stick to your      ║
 ║          story, or call a lawyer.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      6.) One more thing, if the FBI/Secret Service is called in, you are   ║
 ║          basically FUCKED.  They have the power to really do anything      ║

 ║      The above was the nfo provided in the CCA release of Win NT v4.0      ║
 ║  Workstation.  The supplier, Airman, decided to release Win NT because     ║
 ║  all the releases out to date where pathetic too say the least (i.e. no    ║
 ║  drivers or you can't install from previous NT).  So he decided to grab a  ║
 ║  copy of NT from the University.  He (by himself) ripped it off the CD     ║
 ║  and packaged it around 2:00 am last night.  The 47 disk release was       ║
 ║  quickly spread and he went to bed thinking it was quite a success.  At    ║
 ║  this time, I too went to sleep as well not thinking much of it, but I     ║
 ║  was shocked when I came onto IRC the next day.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      It seems that Microsoft (within a few hours of the relesae) got       ║
 ║  ahold of a copy of this release.  Living up to Microsoft's reputation,    ║
 ║  Microsoft emailed someone at the University requesting more information   ║
 ║  on the supplier.  This email had the file_id.diz attatched to it to show  ║
 ║  proof of the grounds of their claims.  I haven't seen this email, but I   ║
 ║  was assured that it was LEGIT.  The folks at the University now had to    ║
 ║  uncover what exactly happened (not knowing who or what Airman is).  I     ║
 ║  was told that they are working on finding out who he is, and that they    ║
 ║  are also complying with Microsoft's requests for more information on him  ║
 ║  to their best efforts.  No one has seen Airman since last night, and the  ║
 ║  outcome of this towards him has yet to be finalized.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Airman is most likely a free man now, and hopefully, he will stay     ║
 ║  that way throughout this Microsoft investigation.  Microsoft seems to     ║
 ║  want to bust this guy who never released anything before, instead of      ║
 ║  going after higher end "law-breakers."  This is quite a shame (Hi         ║
 ║  Microsoft, I know you're reading this!) for this was not a very           ║
 ║  offensive crime.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      To my knowledge, NO one knows exactly who he is besides seeing him    ║
 ║  on IRC.  This includes personel at the University in question.  And no    ║
 ║  further word, again, to my knowledge, has been sent from Microsoft.  All  ║
 ║  I can say is that people should beware... Microsoft is fast and furious   ║
 ║  about this.                                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      This article is strictly the opinion of one person based upon my      ║
 ║  experiences both as a BBS sysop and a long-time resident of the           ║
 ║  Internet.  Before you lock-and-load your industrial strength flame        ║
 ║  thrower, keep in mind that I'm wearing my asbestos boxer shorts.          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Not that many years ago, 95% of us had two ways of trading our        ║
 ║  favorite warez goodies.  Most of our ill-gotten booty came from a small   ║
 ║  cadre of friends and aquaintances during coffee-break trading sessions    ║
 ║  or at the weekly AD&D game.  We could also get the occasional ware from   ║
 ║  our local, semi-legitimate BBSes.  If we were really lucky, we had a      ║
 ║  friend-of-a-friend that knew somebody that got us an account on a pirate  ║
 ║  board where we could leech to our heart's content until we had either     ║
 ║  maxxed out our 270 meg hard drive or sucked up everything they had to     ║
 ║  offer.  I didn't know anyone with access to the really BIG boards, but I  ║
 ║  was aware of their existance.                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The Internet back in those days was the playground of academia, the   ║
 ║  government and a fortunate few who's companies used the Internet for      ║
 ║  transferring files between distant sites.  At that time, gopher was       ║
 ║  about as sophisticated as it got.  FTP was quite popular, but if there    ║
 ║  was a warez scene back then, it was well-hidden and not well organized.   ║
 ║  Since few PC owners had access, most of the interest was in UNIX          ║
 ║  programs and utilities.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Those were the glory days of the BBS scene.  The big boards were the  ║
 ║  lifeblood of distribution then, and anything worth leeching was in that   ║
 ║  channel.  Files were relatively small and you could download even the     ║
 ║  best stuff in a single evening at 2400 bps.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Those days are gone.                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      We stand now at the threshold, the nexus between two realities.  The  ║
 ║  big boards are still popular and important to the scene, but the          ║
 ║  emphasis is slowly shifting away from them and toward the free-wheeling   ║
 ║  world of the Internet.  The days of the iron fisted control, exclusive    ║
 ║  access and long distance calling are over.  We have tasted the wild west  ║
 ║  flavor of the Internet, we've enjoyed its anonymity, and we will not go   ║
 ║  back.                                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Many of you will object to this line of reasoning, some vehemently,   ║
 ║  but consider this, with each day that goes by, more people gain access    ║
 ║  the Internet and few ever log on to their local BBSes.  This trend shows  ║
 ║  no sign of weakening and for good reason.  With an Internet account, Joe  ║
 ║  Public can access everything on the Internet, no exceptions.  Exposure    ║
 ║  to illicit software is almost guaranteed for anyone who spends any        ║
 ║  serious time online.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Even the bastions of the BBS piracy scene have begrudgingly accepted  ║
 ║  the Internet as a necessary evil, allowing people to log on through       ║
 ║  telnet and using fast FTP sites as vehicles for mass storage and          ║
 ║  transfer.  As more and more users use telnet to access their favorite     ║
 ║  BBSes, modem banks will slowly come down while ISDN lines go up.  But     ║
 ║  more importantly, fewer users will choose to live within the constraints  ║
 ║  of the formal BBS, even by telnet.  More will choose to get their daily   ║
 ║  fix from anonymous FTP sites and DCC offer-bots because anyone can        ║
 ║  access them.                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      That said, here are my prognostications, for what they're worth.      ║
 ║  Five years from today, this will be the state of the scene :              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      1.) BBSes will have faded from significance.  The number of 10+ node  ║
 ║          BBSes will be less than half of what we have now.  First release  ║
 ║          status will no longer be determined on BBSes.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      2.) The line between releasers and couriers will become much less     ║
 ║          distinct as powerful software will allow releasers to instantly   ║
 ║          distribute their warez to multiple sites concurrently.  Couriers  ║
 ║          will be relegated to the role of distributing to smaller,         ║
 ║          temporary, anonymous sites and DCC offerbots (or something more   ║
 ║          sophisticated).  That doesn't mean that they will be any less     ║
 ║          important to the scene, just further down the food chain.         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      3.) The 'rules' as we know them today will be just a fond memory.     ║
 ║          The number of short-lived groups will grow exponentially, as      ║
 ║          will their lack of respect for rules concerning dupes.  Although  ║
 ║          uncracked or poorly cracked warez will be far more common, there  ║
 ║          will always be a number of competing distributions, some of       ║
 ║          which are bound to work.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      4.) High-speed connections, rewritable CD-ROMs and more advanced      ║
 ║          high-capacity storage mechanisms will keep up with                ║
 ║          ever-increasing game and application sizes.  The escalation of    ║
 ║          the copy-protection wars will have continued, making crackers     ║
 ║          any group's most-valuable resource.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The basis of my predictions is my core philosophy - the purpose of    ║
 ║  the scene is to make usable software available to the end user.           ║
 ║  Anything that inhibits or runs counter to this reality is doomed to       ║
 ║  fail.  Any rule which does not honor this reality will be scoffed at and  ║
 ║  ignored.  Any group that does not observe this as their core purpose      ║
 ║  will be relegated to insignificant.                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Just one man's opinion.                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      It always saddens me to see a great group go down.  In Napalm's case  ║
 ║  especially since I was a part of it.  There will alway be those people    ║
 ║  that will try and tarnish the Napalm name saying that Napalm released     ║
 ║  non-working games and other bullshit.  The fact remains that Napalm was   ║
 ║  one of the best games release groups of its day.  And I'll be damned if   ║
 ║  I see another channel #Exceed lamer shoot off his mouth about something   ║
 ║  so much eliter than he could ever be.  I have a great deal of respect     ║
 ║  for Prophet and what he has set out to build.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Napalm was a good games group, and there is no debate to that.  In    ║
 ║  closing, I'd like to say that the scene suffers when a great group like   ║
 ║  Napalm goes down, and when Napalm went down, it took a little of the      ║
 ║  scene with it.  To Napalm!                                                ║

 ║  through excellence.  Our philosophy is very simple, we want to see the    ║
 ║  warez scene as a whole become better.  So how does Guild plan to do       ║
 ║  this?  The Guild has been formed with only the most dedicated couriers,   ║
 ║  skilled staff, and the best leadership around.  With that, we plan to     ║
 ║  create the highest level of warez trade ever!                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As we raise the playing field for couriering, the groups trying to    ║
 ║  catch up to Guilds' standards will also improve.  Resulting from this,    ║
 ║  the most efficient warez trade since the first pirated software title     ║
 ║  was released will be ushured.  If you are interested in joining the       ║
 ║  Guild team, join IRC Channel #Guild and pick up an app and nfo.  Only     ║
 ║  the best need apply.                                                      ║

 ║      I obtained an old release by the ever-famous game releasing group     ║
 ║  "TDU-JAM!"  This release was Destruction Derby.  As I read the group's    ║

 ║  to leave the scene?  Their nfo was always good and to the point.  Never   ║
 ║  any of that childish bullshit that would start a war between groups, and  ║
 ║  yet, their releases ALWAYS worked.  I don't think I ever got a copy of a  ║

 ║  like 50 disk releases which turn out to be DEMOS or just some plain       ║
 ║  bullshit which nobody wants or needs.  And half the time, these releases  ║
 ║  do not work due to inproper ripping, cracking, or even just without       ║
 ║  supplying enough information on how to get the release to work.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      There are some groups (very little) which do release quality          ║
 ║  releases, and do get the respect they deserve.  But there will always be  ║
 ║  the occasional 'bad' release, or dupe, which will cause a big scene in    ║
 ║  the scene (no pun intended).                                              ║

 ║      I just have to let something off my chest.  I know this will          ║
 ║  probably fuck up my whole reputation in the warez scene, but I don't      ║
 ║  really care.  All that shit ain't that important to me.  So far, I've     ║
 ║  been in a few groups throughout my warez stage (Hostile, Quantus,         ║
 ║  Legion, Logistix, Empire, whatever) and I just wanted to tell you that    ║
 ║  so far, I have only met one great leader that I think deserved respect    ║
 ║  while he was around, and that is Rapid Motion.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Then, there are some of you guys that were just plain dickheads       ║
 ║  (Marbz, Acidplain).  For some reason, you fucking dickheads thought that  ║
 ║  you deserved a certain respect for yourself from other people in your     ║
 ║  groups.  Well, in my opinion you can go fuck yourself, I've seen plenty   ║
 ║  of you bastards talk shit to people and expect them to sit there and      ║
 ║  take it, some of them do.  But I never took anything from anyone at       ║
 ║  anytime.  I was too proud of myself to let you leaders sit there and try  ║
 ║  and put me down.  So eventually, I told you off and made you "Shut the    ║
 ║  fuck up!"                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In Acidplain's case (while he was a leader in Legion) I told him off  ║
 ║  and then decided to drop the group because I didn't want to stick around  ║
 ║  and put up with his ass.  Eventually, Acidplain got kicked out of Legion  ║
 ║  (thanks to RCN) because he "sucked!"  Here's where the strange powertrip  ║
 ║  shit comes in; in Marbz's case, I knew him when I was in Hostile and he   ║
 ║  was a cool guy.  He started Empire and asked me to join.  I said no       ║
 ║  thanks to his offer because I had a lot of shit to do at home and at      ║
 ║  school then.  As time went by, Empire became a really good group, then    ║
 ║  Marbz starts changing and talking loud shit, telling people to shut the   ║
 ║  fuck up and such, like everyone there is supposed to bow down to him      ║
 ║  like he's king or something.  So from that point on I saw him as a dick   ║
 ║  and he still is a fucking dick.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Here's an example of people giving bitchmade leaders the respect      ║
 ║  that they think they so deserve.  A while back, Marbz left for Germany    ║
 ║  or something and left Blackened in charge of Empire.  Blackened let me    ║
 ║  in Empire because I deserved it (BBS Courier 300 megs plus+); Blackened   ║
 ║  was a cool guy.                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Then 2 weeks later, Marbz comes back and tells Blackened, "What?      ║
 ║  You think that just because I left for a while you can fucking take over  ║
 ║  Empire?"                                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Blackened replies, "No, I'm sorry, I was just doing my job.  I        ║
 ║  wouldn't in any way try to take over Empire."                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The kiss ass went blah blah blah it went on and on.  I even told      ║
 ║  Blackened not to kiss his ass like that.  He told me him and Marbz were   ║
 ║  good friends.  But would a good friend really say that to you?            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Another example of a little bitch is Twiztah (whatta little fag).     ║
 ║  When I got in Empire, he was a really cool person.  Then, that same day   ║
 ║  Marbz came back and bitched at Blackened, Marbz also told Twiztah to      ║
 ║  "Shut the fuck up."  Twiztah didn't say anything after that and took it   ║
 ║  like he had no pride for himself.  Then Twiztah started this group QUA    ║
 ║  (Quarz or Quartz something).  We were still cool and he let me in the     ║
 ║  group as a BBS courier.  Then I told him not to turn into a dicknosed     ║
 ║  leader and let the power get to his head like a lot of other leaders      ║
 ║  did.                                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Later on, Twiztah and I started talking about Marbz and for some      ║
 ║  reason, he asked me not to talk talk shit about Marbz like that.  I told  ║
 ║  him that it was just my opinion.  Blackened heard this WHOLE              ║
 ║  conversation because he was on the #Quarz bot.  So he tells me not to     ║
 ║  say shit behind a person's back.  If Marbz was in the channel, I would    ║
 ║  have said the same shit regardless.  So now they are backing up Marbz     ║
 ║  even after Marbz gets hella smart with both of them.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I told them I could say what I wanted to, after all, it was my        ║
 ║  opinion and I am entitled to it.  Twiztah kicked me out of QUA and        ║
 ║  banned me too because I guess what I was saying was hurting their         ║
 ║  feelings (little girls).  So I asked Twiztah if he thought Marbz          ║
 ║  deserved a certain respect just because he was leader of Empire.  He      ║
 ║  said, "Yes."                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So we talked a little more and he ended up being a little 2 faced     ║
 ║  bitch.  Anyway, what I want to say is :                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      1.) Just because the person is a leader of the group you're in        ║
 ║          doesn't give him the right to talk loud shit to you.  If you had  ║
 ║          any pride, you'd tell that nigga off!                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      2.) If you don't want to talk back to the leader of your group, then  ║
 ║          that shows that warez are more important to you than your pride.  ║
 ║          And if that's true, you're a little sell out with no life.  It    ║
 ║          also shows the leader that he can do that shit again and again,   ║
 ║          and he won't hesitate to do it either.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      3.) Only treat people with the respect that they treat you with.      ║
 ║          Remember, they aren't your parents!                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      4.) Stay true to your real friends and don't ever fuck them over.     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Thanks for paying attention and try to remember this.  Even if it's   ║
 ║  not that clear, try to understand where I'm coming from.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      In ancient times, there was a thing called the Oracle, which was      ║
 ║  supposed to do wonderous things like healing the sick, blessing people    ║
 ║  with luck and predicting the future.  Today, a computer company named     ║
 ║  "Oracle" decided to predict the future itself.  Oracle is now developing  ║
 ║  a thing called a Web Box, which is a $500 TV-top add-on which connects    ║
 ║  to the Internet through cable or some other high-speed link.  The price   ║
 ║  is so low, because this unit will use the TV for a monitor, and have no   ║
 ║  hard disk at all.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Oracle sees this "appliance," as they like to call it, as the future  ║
 ║  of computers, and the one thing that will bring computers and             ║
 ║  couch-potatoes together.  Many skeptics foresee various futures for this  ║
 ║  enterprise.  A few say that the computer evolution will never allow       ║
 ║  itself to go back to the mainframe - a dumb terminal combination that     ║
 ║  was replaced once in the past.  Others predict that this is the end of    ║
 ║  PCs as we know it, and still more hope that both types of machines will   ║
 ║  peacefully coexist with the Boxes in the living room for entertainment,   ║
 ║  and the PCs in the den for real work.  I, personally, would like to       ║
 ║  belive the later version because the switch to Boxes could prove fatal    ║
 ║  to the scene.                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      How would software companies sell their products to their "Boxed"     ║
 ║  customers?  Obviously on the server-client basis - meaning that the       ║
 ║  actual program will reside on the company's web server, and the client    ║
 ║  would purchase the right to use it from a particular box, or with a       ║
 ║  particular login name/password.  The development of such an arrangement   ║
 ║  is most profitable for the software companies because they WILL get paid  ║
 ║  for EVERY "copy" of their program used, and of course save lots of money  ║
 ║  on packaging and distribution.  But to the scene this would mean a        ║
 ║  certain, and quick death.  Since there's no way to use the program on a   ║
 ║  box unless you sign up with the company, there will be no possible way    ║
 ║  to use anything without paying for it!                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      What is that I hear you screaming?  Carding?  You forget that every   ║
 ║  box has a serial number, and as cable now, they would know the exact      ║
 ║  location of any cable jack you're currently using which will make         ║
 ║  carding an extremely unsafe game to play.  But that's the dark side.  It  ║
 ║  would be hard indeed for "The Box" to actually replace computers, but     ║

 ║      It is sort of funny the names we put on people.  More specifically,   ║
 ║  the lack of names.  In the trading scene, we label people either "elite"  ║
 ║  or "lame."  Both of these titles are over used and ambiguous.  Every      ║
 ║  trader has at one time or another used these words to label someone.      ║
 ║  The fast traders use them, and ironically, the slow traders (who the      ║
 ║  fast traders call lame) also use both of these words.  But what do these  ║
 ║  words mean, if they mean anything anymore, and should they be used at     ║
 ║  all?                                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      What does the word "elite" mean anyway.  It can't describe someone    ║
 ║  who gets fast files.  When I was starting out, I called people that       ║
 ║  could get 1 month stuff "elite."  Now people that I know call people      ║
 ║  that get 0 day files "elite."  However, on IRC, anyone can join a         ║
 ║  "warez" channel and pick up fast files.  Does that makes you "elite?"     ║
 ║  The word "elite" might describe a person who has in depth knowledge of    ║
 ║  the trading scene.  But you can become knowledgeable about the scene      ║
 ║  with out ever trading a file (just read RCN).                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      "Elite" is a word that conveys respect.  It, however, is used too     ║
 ║  often.  Everyone is respected in the scene by someone else, all for       ║
 ║  different reasons.  One word is not adequate to describe the meanings of  ║
 ║  which people associate with the word "elite."  It is an outdated word.    ║
 ║  A word that should have been left behind with the 2400 and 14400 modems.  ║
 ║  A simple word for simple times.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The same holds true for the word "lame."  What makes someone "lame?"  ║
 ║  Are you "lame" if you can get fast files, or only if you can't get fast   ║
 ║  files but try to trade with people higher up in the scene than you.  Is   ║
 ║  speed the only factor in determining if a person is "lame" or not?  If    ║
 ║  this is so, then people that label people who get slower files "lame"     ║
 ║  are assholes.  We all (most of us), worked our way up the scene ladder,   ║
 ║  so we all were "lame" at one point in time.  We should then help out the  ║
 ║  people in the position that we were once in.  BUT "lame" is NOT just      ║
 ║  used to describe a person lower in the scene hierarchy.  It has been      ║
 ║  used to describe arrogant group leaders, whole groups even, people who    ║
 ║  look down on others, and so on.  So when in hell's name should someone    ║
 ║  be labeled "lame?"  In my opinion NEVER.  The word "lame" is again too    ║
 ║  broad, it means too much, and is used too often. It is a word that has    ║
 ║  no place in the scene of today.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      New labels must be created, labels that are more specific and         ║
 ║  meaningful.  We need labels that will make a person proud when called it  ║
 ║  by others or words that put an asshole in his place.  "Lame" and "elite"  ║
 ║  don't mean anything anymore.  It is time for a new set of lingo to grow   ║
 ║  and take its place.                                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In the real world, word change evolve with the culture that uses      ║
 ║  them over long periods of time.  "Cyberspace" changes much faster than    ║
 ║  any culture, but its lingo does not.  Only an effort on the part of us    ║
 ║  (trader/and others), will correct the annoying problem of outdated        ║
 ║  lingo.                                                                    ║

 ║      Hi guys!  I'm back, so I decided to start off with an article on      ║
 ║  software piracy and the pirate scene, and how the two of those combined   ║
 ║  effect everything else that goes on around us on the Internet.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Since the FBI has outlawed the previewing of software, it has become  ║
 ║  more and more difficult to find ways to get a warez BBS to stay up        ║
 ║  without arousing suspiscion (especially from the feds).  This article     ║
 ║  will discuss how to (almost) fed-proof your site, BBS, whatever as well.  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      We all know that the entrapment law forces any law enforcement or     ║
 ║  federal agency members to declare that they are indeed members of         ║
 ║  whatever agency they are affiliated with.  This means that if a site or   ║
 ║  BBS that a federal agent or law enforcer of any sort is applying for      ║
 ║  asks him/her if they are one of those, they MUST say yes or do whatever   ║
 ║  it requires them to do.  This is of course within reason, the BBS/Site    ║
 ║  can't really make the person jump up and down, light his/her hair on      ║
 ║  fire and run through the street yelling, "I'm a gerbil!  Don't eat my     ║
 ║  pickles!!!"  Such maybe reasonable would be to ask a Fed to hang up, or   ║
 ║  whatever.                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      There are other things in the disclaimer you should put, such as      ║
 ║  that you take no responsibility for what the users do with the files      ║
 ║  they download from your BBS/site, and many other things.  Use your        ║
 ║  creative imaginations!                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Another especially good way to protect your site or BBS from          ║
 ║  unwanted guests is to force them to upload something before allowing      ║
 ║  them access.  If the new user knows what kind of BBS/site this is, he     ║
 ║  will obviously send something pirated.  If the federal agent or law       ║
 ║  enforcer sends something pirated, he cannot bust you, since he is in      ║
 ║  violation of his own laws, and then he's pretty much fucked anyway.  If   ║
 ║  the person uploads something that is maybe public domain or shareware,    ║
 ║  just kick them off.  They probably wouldn't be any use to you anyway.     ║
 ║  Even in the event that somebody uploads something pirated to your         ║
 ║  BBS/site and you don't normally allow pirated software to be uploaded to  ║
 ║  your BBS/site, the law grants you 24 hours to check and delete it, since  ║
 ║  a sysop cannot be up at all hours of the day making sure that pirated     ║
 ║  software isn't being uploaded.                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now, onto the part about piracy's effects to the world.  Piracy       ║
 ║  effects the world, or more aptly termed Internet, but some people         ║
 ║  consider it another world so I guess either is fine, in many ways, both   ║
 ║  good and bad.  It effects the REAL world in that it hurts software        ║
 ║  companies' profits and that it can get you busted if you're in the wrong  ║
 ║  part of the world such as the US, Canada, etc.  Its good effects are      ║
 ║  that since most software companies are either too lazy to release         ║
 ║  shareware/demos of their products or their shareware/demos are so         ║
 ║  crippled you cannot effectively evaluate the software, pirating provides  ║
 ║  a way for users to evaluate the software before they purchase it.  Of     ║
 ║  course, as I said before, this was outlawed.  Apparently, software        ║
 ║  companies are too greedy to care if their users will be able to use       ║
 ║  their software and that the software will suit their needs.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      It's getting to the point that there are so many different programs   ║
 ║  out there, and so few reviews on those programs that only the huge        ║
 ║  megacorporations can effectively release shareware or demos.  This is     ║
 ║  also the same for reviews.  Only the large companies can get reviews      ║
 ║  from reputable magazines or whatnot.  So a smaller company that produces  ║
 ║  a product that is actually better than Microsoft's newest office          ║
 ║  management program may never get any sort of review or shareware copy     ║
 ║  released, and they will lose money from that.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In general, software costs too much for people to be going out and    ║
 ║  buying it left and right in case the program they bought first does not   ║
 ║  suit their needs.  Since most major stores don't allow trades of          ║
 ║  software, even of the same type, the person who bought the software is    ║
 ║  out of luck.  He's lost about $50 to $70 to some worthless software       ║
 ║  because he could not properly evaluate the software by looking at the     ║
 ║  colorful box prior to purchasing it.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      If the FBI is going to outlaw software piracy in the United States,   ║
 ║  why don't all countries do it?  That is a problem I cannot understand.    ║
 ║  The companies don't want people pirating their software, yet the people   ║
 ║  over in say, Amsterdam, can freely distribute it, since there's no FBI    ║
 ║  there, to my knowledge.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In closing, I'd just like to say that software DOES cost too much to  ║
 ║  be thrown around like it's such an unimportant, miniscule thing, and      ║
 ║  that the companies who are writing the software should find a better way  ║
 ║  to allow potential users to preview their software before wasting their   ║
 ║  money on something they possibly can't use.                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      I recently purchased a USR Sporster 33.6 v.34 expecting to get it     ║
 ║  home and plug it in and start surfing.  I was severely mistaken.  I       ║
 ║  brought my modem home and opened the package.  I then set the com ports   ║
 ║  as instructed, etc.  Things seemed fine at first, then I started to       ║
 ║  notice that during my connections it would pause, or stop responding      ║
 ║  completely.  I assumed that this was caused by some fault of mine,        ║
 ║  possible init strings problems or something to that extent.  I fiddled    ║
 ║  with the init strings and com port settings for several hours and then    ║
 ║  decided that it would be better to try it the next day after I had some   ║
 ║  rest.                                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      While I was at work the next day, I decided I would call the USR      ║
 ║  Tech Support to see if they had any ideas.  After listening to 7 minutes  ║
 ║  of recorded messages, I decided it wasn't worth running up the phone      ║
 ║  companies' bills.  I came home that evening and checked out the           ║
 ║  conference comp.dcom.modems and to my surprise, found more than 100       ║
 ║  messages detailing the same exact problem that I had.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I called the USR Tech Support and after 10 minutes on hold, I         ║
 ║  finally got "Jose" who seemed to have no technical knowlege other than    ║
 ║  the cue card that he was obviously holding in front of him.  He went      ║
 ║  through the obvious.  He asked me what kind of computer I was running.    ║
 ║  I told him that I have a DX2/66 with 8 megabytes of RAM.  He told me to   ║
 ║  make sure that I had com 1 disabled in my BIOS.  I so kindly informed     ║
 ║  him that there was no COM settings in a 486 board.  Then he asked me to   ║
 ║  go into MSD and check the com ports.  When he found out that my com1 was  ║
 ║  displaying a 2400 baud rate he said that my problem would be cured if I   ║
 ║  moved my modem to com3 and irq 5.  He also said again to disable my com   ║
 ║  port in my BIOS and when I again told him that my BIOS had no com         ║
 ║  settings, he insulted me by asking who built my computer.  I replied      ║
 ║  that I built the computer and he shut the fuck up.                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      So I hung up and switched my modem to com 3 irq 5 having to switch    ║
 ║  my Sound Blaster card to irq 7 and temporarily disabling my LPT port.     ║
 ║  This however did not resolve the problem.  Very upset, I called USR Tech  ║
 ║  Support yet again.  This time after waiting for only 15 minutes on a      ║
 ║  long distance connection, I was connected with "Magadababba mohababba     ║
 ║  abdul makharrah bushi" and he asked me the obvious.  When I told him      ║
 ║  that I had read over 100 messages detailing the same exact problem as I   ║
 ║  he asked my FirmWare (EPROM) date and I told him.  He then said I would   ║
 ║  have to send my modem in to have the EPROM upgraded.  I have read         ║
 ║  several messages from people on USENET who say that this has resolved     ║
 ║  their problems.  So, if you have a USR Sportster 33.6 v.34 with an EPROM  ║
 ║  date between 10/95 and 3/96 (you can find this out by typing ati7 at      ║
 ║  your terminal window) and you are having the "pausing" problem then I     ║
 ║  would recommend that you contact USR Tech Support at (847) 982-5151 and   ║
 ║  tell them that you need to have your EPROM upgraded.  This will be a      ║
 ║  free upgrade.  Please, if they hassle you, don't put up with it, ask to   ║
 ║  speak with their supervisor.  This is obviously a known problem and they  ║
 ║  have made no effort to correct this.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I hope that this has been a help, and if you are upset that I         ║
 ║  included the entire conversation and summary of events that took place,   ║
 ║  then please excuse me.                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      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                                                   ║

 ║      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.   ║

 ║  Here I will be reviewing the 3 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 :                                      ║

 ║      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 3 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.   ║

 ║  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,                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 2] Unsatisfactory,                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 3] Average,                                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 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.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      If you haven't played the older versions of this classically bad      ║
 ║  game, then you should check it out for a laugh.  It's a first person 3D   ║
 ║  perspective (Doom like) in black and white, except your a dick and you    ║
 ║  shoot cum.  You hit the fire button the hand starts wacking off and then  ║
 ║  it shoots cum.  The game gets boring quick, and the graphics are pretty   ║
 ║  dull.  You shoot at other dicks, old fart 3 inchers, and tits and         ║
 ║  ovaries.  Your life stamina is shown by the length of your dick and       ║
 ║  armor in this game is a condom.  I didn't notice any differences from     ║
 ║  this version and older versions, but supposively they are there.  If you  ║
 ║  want a good laugh, go ahead, if not dont bother.                          ║

 ║      Yes, I do occasionally review demos, and this is one of those times.  ║
 ║  This is a playable preview of this upcoming Mechwarrior like game.  In    ║
 ║  fact, it's pretty much exactly like Mechwarrior.  Nice graphics, and      ║
 ║  layout for a demo, with pretty much all the options.  If you want to see  ║
 ║  what it's like so when the full version comes out you can see if it'll    ║
 ║  be worth the download, I reccomend getting it.  If you liked Mechwarrior  ║
 ║  you should also get this.  You will need at least a Pentium 90 to play    ║
 ║  this one.  You basically, like in MW, just go around and shoot at other   ║
 ║  robot like fighting machines, you have missions to follow, etc.           ║

 ║  <Butthead> I heard this was like an R-P-G game or something.  It like     ║
 ║             stands for Really Poor Game.                                   ║

 ║  <Beavis> No way, Stuart said it's an adventure game from like 1940.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Butthead> Huhuhuh, you dumbass, they only had that game Pong in 1940.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Butthead> Uhh, I dunno, I think your some guy and stuff, and you like    ║
 ║             are on some Quest for Glory and like you click on stuff and    ║
 ║             stuff happens.  It's stupid.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Butthead> Uhhh, I read this magazine TGR, it like tells me everything.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Beavis> Ahh so that's what you do when you're in the bathroom. *PLOOP*   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Butthead> Yeah, it makes me in-tel-uh-gent and stuff.  It told me this   ║
 ║             game sucks and has shitty music and old vga graphics.  It      ║
 ║             also said it has naked pictures of you masterbating in it.     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Beavis> NO WAY!  That would be an improvement to the game.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      I know Beavis and Butthead is old (so is the game) and that this      ║

 ║      RPG, with lots of interaction and boring non-humorous talking         ║
 ║  between characters.  The movement (with the mouse) is kind of a pain to   ║
 ║  manipulate and to do actions, but you manage.  Music is gay, no           ║
 ║  noticeable sfx.  It's the usual plot of your space ship landing on some   ║
 ║  strange land inhabited by other cretures/people.  Game gets boring        ║
 ║  quick.  You have an eagle's eye view over the land and people.  Not much  ║
 ║  to say, not so hot, don't know why Reflux thought it was the best game    ║
 ║  this year, because it's not.  If you like RPGs with lots of talking and   ║
 ║  roaming around not so hot graphic areas, then you might like this, but    ║
 ║  even then, you might not.                                                 ║

 ║      Not bad.  It's definitely a beta, still swaps and pauses right in     ║
 ║  the middle of gameplay, along with a couple audio glitches thrown in for  ║
 ║  good measure, and it installed its own directX2 drivers without asking    ║
 ║  (quite unlike MS).  I'll like it a lot better once the final comes out.   ║
 ║  I do have to say that the synth muzak flippin rocks though and the        ║
 ║  grafix are a lot better than average.  This will probably be one of       ║
 ║  those "unbelievable directX games" I talked about a couple weeks ago.     ║
 ║  As far as the juice of the game, you can pick one out of about 10 of the  ║
 ║  most popular monster trucks to race with.                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      There are 4 different types of races too.  Drag (side by side car     ║
 ║  crush), Rally (offroad enduro type), Circuit, and Tournament.  You can    ║
 ║  set up suspension, gearbox, and tires on your truck for the different     ║
 ║  types of tracks/races.  Don't have more than 4 other trucks racing        ║
 ║  against you when you first start out though, the traffic kinda sucks.     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      There are many different resolutions, textures, and toggles to        ║
 ║  optimize video/processor speed, as well as audio, and joy/keybd setup.    ║
 ║  As a little side note, from what I gather about the help files included,  ║
 ║  MS is planning on devoting a whole webpage to this game, with possible    ║
 ║  tournament type netgames once the game goes final.  This one will         ║
 ║  definitely be worth checking out!                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      POINTS : 74 - I took some points off because it's a beta and has a    ║
 ║                    couple problems.                                        ║

 ║  an infected file, the whole .com file is a virus, meaning it was          ║

 ║      "Holy Cow" -Phil Rizuto.  Yes, Holy Cow, holy pigs, and HOLY SHIT.    ║
 ║  Man, this game is sweet as sugar.  It's by far the best baseball game     ║
 ║  out, and for those who like arcade type baseball games, rather than the   ║
 ║  sim, this one is the best ever.  This game has it all as do many          ║
 ║  baseball games.  The game play is quick, to the point, and has great      ║
 ║  sound effects and announcer (yes it really has an announcer in the 45     ║
 ║  disks, no addons).  The announcer also doesn't just say lame ass like     ║
 ║  "Now batting 1st baseman."  No sir, he says the name of the player,       ║
 ║  sometimes comments if he has scored a run and stuff like that.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Anyone with at least a 486 can run this game, because it has a nice   ║
 ║  low resolution mode, that at first may seem crappy, but you'll soon see   ║
 ║  it ain't that bad.  Those of you with Pentium 75+ will be able to         ║
 ║  experience the beautiful high resolution graphics that make this game     ║
 ║  even more exciting to play.  It even has modem play and serial play.      ║
 ║  Home run derby of course, season of course, and all of the types of play  ║
 ║  you could think of.  Real players, real teams, and real stats.  This is   ║
 ║  as close as we've gotten to a really good baseball game that was          ║
 ║  actually a GAME and not so statistical.  It's not impossible to hit the   ║

 ║  .maps, most of which were already released in Nuke It and other misc.     ║

 ║      This review brought to you by the letter C, K, and a close friend of  ║
 ║  Z, Mr. Y.  This game closely compares to C&C, but it just lacks the       ║
 ║  faster paced action that C&C has.  The game, although could easily made   ║
 ║  better by some faster movement of the characters (and it has nothing to   ║
 ║  do with the CPU, they are just designed to move only a certain amount of  ║
 ║  space per time) and maybe a little more close up action.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The game has two people, you and the computer, and your job is to     ║
 ║  take over sections of the land and build up an army, get weapons and      ║
 ║  vehicles etc.  Once you've done so (or you could just go straight for     ║
 ║  it) you try to knock down the enemies fort.  Also, the movement of the    ║
 ║  map is pretty damn slow too, and the controlling of it is a pain in the   ║
 ║  ass when you have people all over the map and you are trying to move      ║
 ║  them a little further down past where the screen shows (you can use the   ║
 ║  zoomed out map, but it's still a pain in the ass).                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Plus, every time you click on one of your guys it centers the         ║
 ║  screen, pain.  The robots (they are the ones who fight) talk to you on    ║
 ║  videophone and say stuff like "What the hell is wrong with you, I said    ║
 ║  we are under attack."  Sometimes they will give you an attitude, if for   ║
 ║  example, you tried to send one soldier after a huge tank, it will say     ║
 ║  "Are you crazy?" or "No way!" but it will still of course do it.  The     ║
 ║  game could be a lot better if they just made it more fast paced.  But if  ║
 ║  you don't mind waiting 1-2 mins for your guy to go from your side to the  ║
 ║  other, then by all means, try this one out.  It certainly isn't on the    ║
 ║  C&C level, but it tries to be.                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Wow, I was impressed by the looks of this game.  Although it's more   ║
 ║  fighting than it was using your brain, it's still a good game.  How can   ║
 ║  you describe this one, well, picture it this way, you know how in Alone   ║
 ║  in the Dark you could fight, well that's what this game is like, except   ║
 ║  it's on a better game engine, better fighting, and better graphics.       ║
 ║  This game amazed me because it runs smoothly on anything (486+) in the    ║
 ║  top notch gfx mode.  It's really fun to play, but there are only a few    ║
 ║  levels because of the large size.  Also don't use the Reflux installer,   ║
 ║  I think it's set for *.r* and so it goes in a loop, do it manually.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      This game is one worth checking out if you like those 3D looking      ║
 ║  games and wish they had more action to it.  Although the game gets        ║
 ║  boring, it's still a nice step in technology and looks cool to show off   ║
 ║  to people.  There was also an animation pack, which will get it's review  ║
 ║  in next issue.  Great game, but lacks the umph (more levels) that the CD  ║
 ║  would have.  Also, once I got to the level "European Middle Age - Level   ║
 ║  1" I would keep on beating it and it would just take me back to that,     ║
 ║  seems like the ending is not there or there is none.  Here are two        ║

 ║      If you got into Tetris you might like this.  It wasted about 15       ║
 ║  minutes of my time though, which is about 10 more than I thought it       ║
 ║  would.  The game is almost exactly like tetris, as far as the shit        ║
 ║  dropping out the top goes, but it drops animals and food instead of       ║
 ║  shapes.  Only certain animals eat certain food and the more food they     ║
 ║  eat the more points you get.  Kinda hard to explain, so either screw it,  ║
 ║  or leech it to find out.  The grafix were a little better than average    ║
 ║  for a game like this, and the midis were cool too.  2 player mode was     ║
 ║  also included, like side by side Dr. Mario.  Be sure to get the .dll      ║
 ║  fixpak for this too.                                                      ║

 ║      Another SimXXXX type of game, but I like this one for some reason.    ║
 ║  Maybe because there's combat stuff in it too?  Maybe because there's a    ║
 ║  different type of strategy involved?  Dunno.  There's definitely a lot    ║
 ║  of stuff to do (and for me, to fuck up..heh).  The main goal in this is   ║
 ║  to build up your technologies, while keeping your people fed and happy,   ║
 ║  not running out of resources, and not getting waxed by your competitors.  ║
 ║  I picked a crappy race when I started, and my competitors got a lot more  ║
 ║  colonists than I did.  Ya gotta have a lot of colonists for a fast        ║
 ║  growing empire.  I had a little trouble trying to do stuff, but a nice    ║
 ║  help system wasn't ripped in case you can't figure out how to do          ║
 ║  something.                                                                ║

 ║      The music is pretty cool, the graphics are about like any other       ║
 ║  SimXXX game, and netplay wasn't ripped either.  A little side note,       ║
 ║  Ionizer couldn't get this to work on his Win31 box, it says it will       ║
 ║  under Win32s in the nfo, so I dunno if the nfo is correct on that.  No    ║
 ║  problems installing it in 95 tho, just run Razor's supah hax0red          ║
 ║  Setup.exe.  WinG and the Adobe .pdf reader were included too.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      All in all, I can pretty much say that this game seems to be SimCity  ║
 ║  taken to a new and interesting level.  Nice game, from someone who barfs  ║
 ║  at the word SimShitty.                                                    ║

 ║  doesn't suck.  Actually, the game itself wasn't entirely too awful, but   ║
 ║  it was a really shitty rip and not worth the download time.  You can't    ║
 ║  see any of the mission briefings (to tell you what kind of equipment you  ║

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

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

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

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

 ║  [-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.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  [ 1] The util was a dupe or freeware,                                     ║

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