Emulating RCN-10.EXE in DOSee.

Use these tabs to make adjustments to the emulation

If the emulation is taking too long to load, you can turn it off.

Applying changes will reload the page and reboot the emulator





Changes will not be applied until this browser tab has been refreshed





DOS programs need a keyboard for user input

ENTER to select or continue
ESC to navigate back or exit
are often used to navigate menus


Emulation too fast?
Set the emulator to use the 386 CPU configuration
Experiencing graphic or animation glitches?
Set the emulator to use VGA only graphics configuration
Need to turn off the audio?
Disable sound card support

Have no audio?
  1. Try Gravis Ultrasound hardware
  2. The song or audio file maybe missing from the program

Want to hack around in the DOS prompt?
  1. Mount the DOS tools drive with automatic run program turned off
  2. Then dir u: to list the utilities, some included programs 4dos.com cp.exe acidview.exe pictview.exe
  3. Use mount to list the emulated drives
  4. Learn the DOSBox commands

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.

 │      On December 26, 1995, Chris Eden, better known as Spyder-X on the     │
 │  net, passed away.  We would like to dedicate this issue of RCN in memory  │
 │  of him, for his hard work in the scene and his many talents.  You are     │
 │  missed by many.  If you would like to write to Chris Eden's father,       │
 │  please e-mail your letters to the above anon address and we'll forward    │

 █   Hey there... well just to comment on RCN-09.ZIP, I find your attacks on  █
 █   INQ a joke.  Though in my opinion, e-mags aren't very important, just    █
 █   fun to read when you are bored, but between INQ and you, I gotta go      █
 █   with INQ.  Not because they are so much better, but because of the       █
 █   content in RCN.  You treat small, no-name groups as if they are worth    █
 █   mentioning.  We see a million little, crappy internet groups appear and  █
 █   disappear, and nobody cares.  Why?  Because there was no point to them   █
 █   in the first place.  So until you start covering things worth            █
 █   mentioning, besides some no-named couriering group, that I have never    █
 █   seen a file tagged by on PC, XF, or Akira...                             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Dear Reader,                                                             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   You know why the scene is filled with so many egoistical people?         █
 █   Because you have to be in a big group to get noticed, and if you're      █
 █   not, you're a "lamer" and aren't worth mentioning.  What these "lamers"  █
 █   tend to do is make their own groups so they can get started in the       █
 █   scene.  That's called ambition, and though it often fails, it deserves   █
 █   recognition.  If you think of yourself as a person more elite than the   █
 █   content of these groups, you should feel good about yourself, it is      █
 █   your level that these groups are trying to reach.  Perhaps greater       █
 █   recognition of these smaller groups will bring more people into the      █
 █   "elite" scene as we know it, and maybe someday yield an awesome          █
 █   supplier or a kick-ass courier to YOUR group.                            █
 █                                                                            █

 █   Reading Issue #7 I notice emphasis on Windows 95.  I thought real men    █
 █   use no Windows 95.  Ar!  Ar!  What gives?                                █

 █   Heheheh, well Windows 95 seems to be the operating environment of the    █
 █   future.  I would refine your hypothesis of real men NOT using Windows    █
 █   95 to "Real men use Windows 95 on a Pentium 100 with 32 megs of RAM and  █
 █   a 2 gig hard drive" - Note that under that hypothesis, I am by no means  █
 █   a real man, but I think my point has been made.  If you offer Windows    █
 █   95 a hefty enough system, RA RA!!  It'll push some real multitasking     █
 █   speed!  I say get used to Windows 95, it's an awesome improvement over   █
 █   3.1, and heck, as long as we can still access MS-DOS, s'all good,        █
 █   right? ;-)                                                               █

 █   I went into #hybrid and there were about 10 people there (maybe I came   █
 █   at a good time, I dunno).  So I asked them to dispel the rumors that     █
 █   they were dead.  They attribute their temporary lack of releases to the  █
 █   post-Christmas season, saying that software companies do not usually     █
 █   release any games after Christmas, as few people would buy them;         █
 █   therefore HBD is also not releasing much during this time.               █
 █                                         -Apprentice  (no affils)           █

 █   Again, I hate to use my own group as an example, it always sounds        █
 █   biased, but I'll say this much.  Legacy has had no problems releasing    █
 █   games this year.  Usually the programs we'll find right after Christmas  █
 █   are more like compilations of older games, but nonetheless, they are     █
 █   still store releases.  We still find games that aren't compilations,     █
 █   usually stuff that was hard to crack and groups just skipped, so we'll   █
 █   go in there with our cracking force and try a bit harder the second      █
 █   time around.  Using Christmas as an excuse doesn't work.  There's        █
 █   always more to release.  Pre-Christmas, we find the huge store           █
 █   releases like Warcraft II and the like.  Post-Christmas, we find         █
 █   releases from the smaller companies..                                    █
 █                                                                            █

 █   Q  : In RCN #09, Fallout's interview quoted that you took over #NFS,     █
 █        mass deoped everyone, held #NFS hostage and asked for sites.  Are   █
 █        Fallout's words true?                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : No, the day before the takeover of #NFS, I received a trojan from   █
 █        someone using the nick tKLP.  This file was called "nbc-t.zip".  I  █
 █        unzipped the program, and ran it assuming that it was a nbc file    █
 █        tagger.  I ran it and poof.  My c: drive went, but I was still      █
 █        able to switch to an mIRC Window because Windows was on my other    █
 █        hard drive.  I then told Fallout that I would be gone for a while   █
 █        because I needed to fix my computer.  I did not log on the Net      █
 █        for two days.  After I had shut off my computer, there was no way   █
 █        to get back into Windows 95 until I got the original CD from my     █
 █        friend Carcnoid.  Carcnoid then asked me if I was online because    █
 █        #Demolition was just taken over by someone called Bullet Wound.  I  █
 █        knew it was not me since my computer was down, so it had to be      █
 █        someone else.  I suspected that the person taking over channels in  █
 █        my name had to be either Phatman or Flake.  Ever since I got on     █
 █        the Net 7 months ago, they have been trying to fuck with me.        █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : How did you narrow down the suspects to two people, Phatman and     █
 █        Flake?                                                              █

 █   A  : I got back on the Net 2 days later, and I saw someone online with   █
 █        my nickname, [-bW-].  I said to the impostor, "FUCK YOU!"  It had   █
 █        to be Flake because he did not have call waiting.  I called Flake   █
 █        on his voice line and asked him why his data line was busy.  He     █
 █        told me his sister was talking on the phone.  I didn't believe him  █
 █        so I got my friend Tranq to 3way 611 and test the line for          █
 █        difficulties, and we found out immediately that it was a modem on   █
 █        the line, not his sister talking with a friend.  Flake was          █
 █        responsible for taking many channels that I am not aware of.        █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : How did Flake impersonate you to get ops?  Did he have access to    █
 █        your account?                                                       █

 █   A  : No, I am using a Cybergate Slip/PPP account to access the Net.      █
 █        From there, I telnet to my shells.  With mIRC, you can change your  █
 █        real name, alias, etc.  Cybergate is also composed of about 5000    █
 █        accounts of wich 4500 are cracked.                                  █

 █   Q  : How do you feel about Flake hurting your reputation?                █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : I have been working hard at getting my reputation back up.          █
 █        Distinct understood that it was not me because they think I was     █
 █        honest or some shit like that.  Demolition believed me with any     █
 █        explanation and Nokturnal Trading Alliance did not really care.     █
 █        The only two groups that cared were aCe and NFS.  Both groups       █
 █        kicked me out and did not seem to want me back.                     █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Why do you think that aCe and NFS did not believe your story?       █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : I really don't know.  I knew Fallout from AKA and I would have      █
 █        though that he would understand.  I guess people from DMN are more  █
 █        understanding.  Besides, why would I take over sooooooo many        █
 █        channels?  What for?  To prove that I am a big man?  I already      █
 █        know I am :) j/k.                                                   █

 █   Q  : What is your opinion of Fallout and NFS now that you got kicked     █
 █        out of that group for something you apparently did not do?          █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Fallout is cool I guess, and it must really suck for him because    █
 █        take overs suck.  Since he wants me out, that's fine with me, but   █
 █        if he wants me back, it'll also be fine.  I have no personal        █
 █        grudges with him.  He is just trying to make the scene a little     █
 █        better.                                                             █

 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : To reform DiC at the time would have been impossible because it     █
 █        was too fucked up.  Nobody knew who the leaders were and we didn't  █
 █        even have a site setup.  However, I do NOT hold any grudges at ANY  █
 █        DiC members.                                                        █

 █   Q  : Why has dCS specialized in one area?  Many new courier groups feel  █
 █        that being able to release games, utilities, consoles, code demos,  █
 █        and making art is good because it makes them versatile.             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Well we started out as couriers, and we are not dumb, so we are     █
 █        sticking with couriering... and COURiERiNG ONLY!                    █

 █   Q  : Is dCS official couriers for anyone?                                █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : We are not official couriers for any groups right now, but we are   █
 █        negotiating with many groups and we do not want to be officials     █
 █        for a group unless they have proven themselves.  We don't want to   █
 █        make any mistakes and rush into things because that's how groups    █
 █        die and we don't wanna do that.                                     █

 █   A  : Since dCS is a new group, we are taking more and more members each  █
 █        day.  Once we get everything organized, we will be making possible  █
 █        cuts.  Couriers must be able to courier at least 150+ megs per      █
 █        week.  We are strictly 0-3 day, no exceptions!                      █

 █   Q  : What are your futrue plans for dCS?  Will DCS ever split off to     █
 █        being a release group?                                              █

 █   A  : My goal is to insure the survival of dCS.  I plan on molding it     █
 █        into a very respectable group with good hard working members.       █
 █        As for releasing, I do not plan on releasing under dCS.             █

 █   Q  : Motiv8 is currently going through somewhat of a low point.  I do    █
 █        however see you guys playing well in the release scene.  What is    █
 █        that all about?                                                     █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Motiv8 has been known as a popular site and courier group, but it   █
 █        is boring to just  courier so I wanted something new to do and      █
 █        decided releasing would be fun.  We will release more and more as   █
 █        we are one of the oldest NET groups and we can crack.  Many groups  █
 █        release software that must use cdemulator or fakecd.                █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Many feel that a courier group that also releases is spreading      █
 █        itself thin.  Do you feel that is the case with Motiv8?             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : That is correct, many of us concentrate on releasing instead of     █
 █        couriering.  We don't concentrate so much yet as we still do both.  █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Isn't it better to do a single job well than to do two jobs in a    █
 █        mediocre fashion?  Is Motiv8 a release group or a courier group?    █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : We are both since we have members that can do both things.  I have  █
 █        been in the scene ever since the c64 days.  Back in those days,     █
 █        groups had many jobs and people like doing more than one thing.     █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Surely it would be foolish to compare the c64 days to today, would  █
 █        you not agree?                                                      █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Many of the good leaders in the scene were around back in the c64   █
 █        days, and use their knowledge from that scene to help the current   █
 █        scene.  Remember that the c64 built the piracy scene of today.      █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Is it true that the PC scene started the competitive nature?        █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Yes and no.  The PC scene is definitely a branch of their own, but  █
 █        many of the ideas were brought about from other earlier scenes.     █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : What will you do in order to get Motiv8 out of it's slump?          █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : I don't think Motiv8 is in a slump as only new people claim us      █
 █        dead.  We all have our ups and downs.  People must remember that    █
 █        many of the Motiv8ers have been in the scene for many years and     █
 █        they don't see the fun in the same way and therefore they are more  █
 █        lazy.  We will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary very soon.     █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : How long have you been in the scene, and could you give us          █
 █        specific examples of how the c64 scene helped Motiv8 grow?          █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : I have been in the scene for nearly 13 years and I have learned a   █
 █        lot about group leadership and quality.  I know how to handle ugly  █
 █        situations like group wars.                                         █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Am I sensing a move of Motiv8 more into Releasing and less into     █
 █        Couriering?                                                         █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Motiv8 will do a lot more releasing in the future, but we will      █
 █        still courier because it's fun for a lot of the members.            █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : How did you resolve group wars in the past?                         █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : I killed 2 groups back in the c64 time!  One begged for peace and   █
 █        we split the other one to pieces.  The rest died in a week so it    █
 █        wasn't really a war, just a skirmish.                               █

 █   A  : We killed the group X-Factor by blocking their phone lines and we   █
 █        threatened them with shit.  The rest just cried for peace.          █
 █                                                                            █

 █   Q  : NFS has been putting out a lot of good software.  However, many of  █
 █        them turned out to be "dupes".  For example, SoftRam 96 released    █
 █        this week was actually just SoftRam 95.  What caused such a big     █
 █        blunder, and how will you prevent such blunders in the future?      █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Well, tKLP told us that he too had SoftRam 96, and that NFS should  █
 █        hurry up and release it so we could beat his group, RoR.  I later   █
 █        found out that he set the whole thing up to screw NFS.  We trusted  █
 █        him and paid the price.                                             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Why would a respected person such as tKLP do such a lame thing as   █
 █        sabotaging another group?                                           █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : tKLP did it because he thinks he is all that + more, but he is      █
 █        really just an asshole.  He's already got a really bad reputation.  █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : What will tKLP gain out of hurting NFS?                             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : He has always acted like an asshole, and he even applied to NFS to  █
 █        be our U.S. Headquarters.  We never let him in the group, which     █
 █        was *good* in the long run.                                         █

 █   Q  : Do you feel that NFS will continue to grow in the future?  If so,   █
 █        what are your future plans for NFS?                                 █

 █   A  : I plan to make NFS rock solid, sort of like Razor, and to stay in   █
 █        the scene for a long time while having fun releasing a lot.         █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Since you want NFS to be like Razor, and Razor is a games group,    █
 █        will NFS ever specialize in games only?                             █

 █   Q  : Were you kicked out of fATE last week, or did you willingly leave   █
 █        the group?                                                          █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : I told Anti Derivative 4 days ago that I was no longer in fATE and  █
 █        I thought he understood that.                                       █

 █   Q  : Why did you tell him you were no longer in fATE?                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : For many reason, Anti Derivative and g0d were never online to take  █
 █        care of any problems.  Leodlion is one of the most childish people  █
 █        I know on the NET.  There were also too many people in fATE that    █
 █        did nothing for the group.  I also did not like how everytime       █
 █        there was a problem, they would just kick you out of the channel    █
 █        and not allow you to defend yourself.                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : If Anti Derivative and g0d were not online to take care of their    █
 █        many problems, then who did?  How is fATE still alive?              █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : In theory, the other seniors did, but that was one of the main      █
 █        problems, not much of things were taken care of.                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Why do you think that Leodlion is childish?  He is a married adult  █
 █        with kids.                                                          █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : His attitude is a real turn off.  He treats people with little or   █
 █        no respect.  Whenever he disagrees with someone, instead of         █
 █        speaking to them rationaly or allowing the other side to defend     █
 █        themselves, he would just kick them out of the channel.  He has     █
 █        done a lot against me.  When I was still in fATE, whenever he       █
 █        realized that I was correct, he would never admit that he was       █
 █        wrong, but he woudl simply ban me.  I felt that as long as I was    █
 █        in fATE, I should never be taken off the bots, much less banned     █
 █        from them.  That is just one example of his many childish ways.     █
 █        He did not like the fact that when I was questioned, that I would   █
 █        defend myself and in turn, question his actions.                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : What did you state?                                                 █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Well, I am a very good "Warez Encyclopedia".  I know all the files  █
 █        that have been released.  A Demolition senior came and asked me     █
 █        if "Such and such a program" was already released.  I knew that it  █
 █        was not out yet, but then Leodlion decided to join the              █
 █        conversation.  He started ordering me to log off the Net and call   █
 █        Park Central to dupe check.  The Demolition senior saw no need for  █
 █        it.  I believe that Leodlion is bad for the group; Anti Derivative  █
 █        is not too good either if he cannot take care of his own duties.    █
 █        g0d is fairly stupid also, he tries and takes over #MALiCE a few    █
 █        days ago, and in turn, that irritates MALiCE and then they take     █
 █        over #Fatefiles.                                                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █                                                                            █

 █  REDMOND, WASHINGTON, U.S.A, 1996 JAN 12 (NB) -- Microsoft Corp.           █
 █  (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Novell Inc. (NASDAQ: NOVL) have announced what may be  █
 █  the largest settlement ever in a software piracy case.  The two software  █
 █  giants said they have reached a settlement with Scott Morris, the         █
 █  operator of the computer bulletin board known as the Assassin's Guild     █
 █  Bulletin Board Service.                                                   █

 █  The deal calls for Morris to pay $70,300 in cash and forfeit computer     █
 █  hardware valued at more than $40,000.  Morris also reportedly agreed to   █
 █  assist Microsoft and Novell in their continuing BBS investigations.       █
 █                                                                            █
 █  The Lexington, Kentucky-based Assassin's Guild promoted itself as the     █
 █  worldwide headquarters for two large software pirate groups, Pirates      █
 █  with an Attitude and Razor 1911.                                          █
 █                                                                            █
 █  In April 1995 Newsbytes reported that US Marshals and investigators for   █
 █  Microsoft and Novell had raided Morris' residence, charging him with      █
 █  illegal reproduction and distribution of copyrighted software.  Law       █
 █  enforcement officials said the Assassin's Guild had been offering         █
 █  hundreds of pirated software products for downloading at no charge,       █
 █  including programs published by Microsoft and Novell.                     █
 █                                                                            █
 █  US Marshals seized 13 computers, 11 modems, a satellite dish, nine        █
 █  gigabytes of online data and more than 40 gigabytes of offline data       █
 █  dating back to 1992, according to Microsoft.                              █
 █                                                                            █
 █  Jim Lowe, Microsoft corporate attorney, said online piracy is a growing   █
 █  concern for software publishers.  Microsoft has often announced it is     █
 █  committed to put a crimp in pirate operations.                            █
 █                                                                            █
 █  Both Microsoft and Novell are members of the Business Software Alliance   █
 █  (BSA), an industry alliance formed to promote the growth of the software  █
 █  industry through education and enforcement initiatives.  According to     █
 █  Bob Kruger, director of enforcement at BSA, the Assassin's Guild          █
 █  settlement sends a strong message to pirates. "It sends a clear message   █
 █  to operators of bulletin boards who are illegally distributing            █
 █  copyright-protected software that they will be investigated and sued, or  █
 █  criminally prosecuted."                                                   █
 █                                                                            █
 █  Following the raid BSA spokesperson Kim Willard told Newsbytes the        █
 █  pirated software on the Assassin's Guild computers included Microsoft     █
 █  Windows, Novell Netware, Wordperfect word processor software and          █
 █  numerous games and utilities.                                             █
 █                                                                            █
 █  Before the settlement was reached Morris faced potential penalties that   █
 █  included up to $100,000 in fines and up to five years in jail if          █
 █  convicted.                                                                █

 █  In 1994, the last year for which complete figures are available, an       █
 █  estimated $15.2 billion in revenue was lost by the software publishing    █
 █  industry as a result of software piracy, according to the BSA.  The       █
 █  organization estimates that in the US alone 35 percent of the business    █
 █  software in use is pirated, resulting in almost $3 billion in losses to   █
 █  the industry.  Loss figures refer to the retail value of the pirated      █
 █  software if it were purchased legitimately.                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █  The BSA maintains a toll-free hotline to report suspected software        █
 █  piracy and also has an e-mail address for that purpose.  The group can    █

 █      The Business Software Alliance (BSA) claims that $15.2 billion in     █
 █  revenue was lost by the software publishing industry as a result of       █
 █  software piracy.  BSA should stand for Bull Shitting Alliance, not only   █
 █  are those figures outrageous, but there is no possible way to derive an   █
 █  accurate numerical figure on how much was pirated.  From my better        █
 █  judgement, and since I do know just a tad about piracy, I would like to   █
 █  say that 80% of pirated software is not even used.  Of the 20% that is    █
 █  pirated, 99% would not have been bought anyways.  For example, I          █
 █  downloaded "Hooves of Thunder" (when it was 0 day), and decided to try    █
 █  out the game.  Not only did I feel the 22 disks was a complete waste of   █
 █  time, but I'm glad I did not shell out the $60 for some stupid ass horse  █
 █  betting game.  If the Bull Shitting Alliance added $30-60 for every       █
 █  time I downloaded a game, then perhaps, $15.2 billion would seem rather   █
 █  small.  I would probably be responsible for downloading a billion or two  █
 █  myself, but I have yet to extract, much less use, any of the software I   █
 █  download.                                                                 █

 █      I am ashamed to say this, but I have to admit, I buy software as      █
 █  much as I can afford.  I only bought 2 programs, so don't start flaming   █
 █  me.  I recently purchased Sim Tower and War Craft 2.  Why did I buy Sim   █
 █  Tower?  First off, it was first pirated by Genesis sometime last year,    █
 █  that means that it is OLD, and I don't know where to get OLD warez; and   █
 █  since the game was highly complicated, a manual was a necessity for real  █
 █  game play.  I downloaded War Craft 2, the beta version by Hybrid, and     █
 █  really enjoyed the game, so I decided to shell out the $59.99 and bought  █
 █  the game.  There are many games and utilities that I would like to buy,   █
 █  if I only had the money.                                                  █

 █  I needed to have before I could download some hard core K-rad WaReZ.      █
 █  It's been a year since I logged onto my first warez BBS.  I thought I     █

 █  days, the days of confusion.  I remember looking through the main menu,   █
 █  not knowing what half the options did, but noticeing something to the     █
 █  nature of "Other BBS #s."  I quickly looked through the list, jotted      █
 █  down all the numbers, and said to myself "WOW!! All these boards, I can   █
 █  get ANYTHING now!"  I then traveled over to the boards on my list,        █
 █  having given up because of that stupid "credits" message that I didn't    █

 █      I got lucky, I knew something about the Internet, and found out       █
 █  about a "WaReZ Site."  I tried it, and it was amazing, I didn't find      █
 █  any of that weird "credits" word, and leeched all I wanted (meaning       █
 █  everything).  I saw some site lists, got them, and it said to send in     █
 █  some sites for more in return.  Of course, like any other idiot, I        █
 █  sent in some fake sites, just threw in some numbers that looked good.     █
 █  Most of the lists told me to "Get the fuck off my list, lamah," but       █
 █  there were always the dumb ones that sent me something back.  I would     █
 █  anxiously try to connect to every site, most didn't work, and half the    █

 █      Not a month later, I got a friend of mine with all too much time on   █
 █  his hands to start downloading all the software, and I started a BBS on   █
 █  a brand new $45 Zoltrix no error-correcting or compression 14.4 modem.    █
 █  My friend would upload all the warez that he would get, and the users     █
 █  would download them, free of charge, none of that "credits" bull shit.    █
 █  I learned a lot from that little BBS, that soon became one of the         █
 █  biggest boards in my area, biggest single-node board, that is.  I found   █
 █  out that there were some really nice people that would release software   █
 █  for boards like mine.  Well sure they were nice, you would have to be a   █
 █  really nice person to just spend time sending out software to people!     █
 █  I decided to make a group of my own, Brutus and I, to release some        █
 █  software, kind of help the cause a bit.  Not aware of anything like dupe  █
 █  checking, we just released what we got, most of the stuff was from years  █
 █  before, but we took our coder, Xenon, he coded a nice little EXE for us,  █
 █  and we were off.  Our first release was Telemate 4.20, cracked, which     █
 █  I'll point out we released BEFORE any other group, but it made it no      █
 █  farther than my own area code.  Still, Tsunami, from the late FSW,        █
 █  called Brutus and I up, and asked us to merge into his group.  This was   █
 █  where it all began...                                                     █
 █                                                                            █
 █  A look to the bright side:                                                █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Surely we merged, we nearly peed in our pants when we got the offer!  █
 █  I wouldn't say I was lame back then, more ignorant than lame, perhaps     █
 █  unaware would be the best word, but I'll call it lame for now, because    █
 █  I think I was an example of your average "lamer" from today.  I didn't    █
 █  really know about groups, I didn't totally know what they did, I had      █
 █  yet to get on any boards with more than one line, and all I knew about    █
 █  the 'net was that it had FTP sites, I had once tried IRC, I tried to      █
 █  join #warez, but couldn't get in because it was Invite Only, so I just    █
 █  gave up.  When I got into FSW, Tsunami introduced me to IRC, I learned    █
 █  a bit about how to use it, and I was off.  Of course I assumed that I     █
 █  could get into any group now, I was coo like dat, da pimp o' da           █
 █  neighbawhood, I could do ANYTHING!  My position in FSW wasn't really      █
 █  stated yet, I assumed that I would try to get FSW releases, though.  I    █
 █  think Tsunami must have seen that I could lead a group well, something    █
 █  like that, because I was about as confused as, well, a lamer.  I found    █
 █  out that groups actually had channels of their own, they didn't all just  █
 █  hang out in #warez, so I joined #Any_group_I_Could_Think_Of.              █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I soon found out that #warez5 and #warez7 were often open to the      █
 █  public.  I joined the channels just to find a bunch of people begging     █
 █  for new software, nobody really getting what they want, half of them      █
 █  getting kicked out by people that seemed to think hey were better than    █
 █  them, nobody really getting anything done.  Tsunami once found me in one  █
 █  of these channels and told me why I shouldn't hang there, how I would     █
 █  never get anything through them.  I took his advice, thank goodness.      █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I remember applying to fATE, ZillionZ, PWA, and RTS, not that I knew  █
 █  what I was applying as, not that I really cared.  In fact, I didn't even  █
 █  know what the difference was between a Courier group and a Release        █
 █  group!  When asked what I was applying as, I just said, "Uhh, I guess a   █
 █  distro BBS..." "How many nodes do you have?" "uhhh... 1, but I hope to    █
 █  get a second one within a month, I really do!"  Then I wondered why I     █
 █  got kicked out only a few moments later.  Tsunami knocked some sense      █
 █  into me, taught me exactly how a group ran, what the differences were     █
 █  between groups, and all the tricks of the trade.  I was soon an FSW       █
 █  senior, FSW died, we started Vendetta, I was the vice president, and      █
 █  am now in Legacy as a vice president.  All this started from one small    █
 █  FTP site that didn't push much more than about 5kb/s.                     █
 █                                                                            █
 █  A look back...                                                            █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Today, as I join #Warez5, just to think back on old times, I am       █
 █  amazed to see many of the same people I saw there about 9 months ago,     █
 █  still doing what they did then, still getting the same results.  I just   █
 █  don't understand.  Maybe it's my competitive spirit, maybe it's my need   █
 █  for improvement, but it took me no more than 5 months to get from a       █
 █  nobody in the scene to somebody who, in my humble opinion, is doing       █
 █  quite well from himself.  How could these people, who I'm sure have been  █
 █  hanging out in the warez channels for longer than I can imagine, stay     █
 █  there, never improving their status, always staying the same?             █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Given the existence of this highly competitive spirit in the scene,   █
 █  if you ever want to get on any of the bigger boards (i.e. the boards      █
 █  that actually have all 20 disks of a 20 disk release) you must give in.   █
 █  Maybe the scene isn't totally free.  Maybe it just requires payment in    █
 █  the form of desire to help.  I'm sure there are many of us that are in    █
 █  the scene so that when there's a program that we need coming out, we can  █
 █  get it, instead of having to shell out a ton of money in buying it.  I'm  █
 █  quite happy with such people, and don't look down at them one bit.  It    █
 █  happens to be that I'm involved in this business to have fun and          █
 █  compete, where they are in it for the software itself.  However, if one   █
 █  wants to be in just to get software, he'll have to put out just a bit.    █
 █  Perhaps on a weekend when he has extra time, wait for a group to release  █
 █  and download the release right away, then send it to the board you want   █
 █  to download from.  All it involves is a bit of dedication.                █
 █                                                                            █
 █      The easiest road to success in the scene is joining a group.  You     █
 █  might not feel like you're good enough to join the top groups, but there  █
 █  is a wealth of smaller groups ready to accept new applicants.  Just       █
 █  don't expect to quit the smaller group for a bigger one once you've       █
 █  gotten more experience.  If you join a group, you should be dedicated to  █
 █  it as it should be to you.  The only excuse ever to leave a group is if   █
 █  the group dies, you strongly disagree with the values of the group and    █
 █  talking with the staff doesn't fix anything, or if the group merges       █
 █  into another.  You should spend as much time choosing your group as they  █
 █  should evaluating you for a position.  Just remember, this is all for     █
 █  fun, we're not in here to make money, or to fill egos.                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █      For those of us that aren't in it for the software or the             █
 █  competition, I often wonder why we stay.  What's the point of staying in  █
 █  the scene if all you do all day is beg, beg, and beg some more, never     █
 █  getting any of what you ask for.  The scene is one big cycle.  The        █
 █  leaders of today may retire tomorrow.  The members of yesterday will      █
 █  lead today, and the "lamers" of last night will take the place of the     █
 █  members today.  I could never stay a lamer forever.  The only thing that  █
 █  I fear is that our "lamers" aren't really lame, just uneducated, and      █
 █  they don't know HOW to excel in the scene.  We all must start somewhere.  █
 █  Some of us, like myself, got lucky, and had an early chance, but for      █
 █  the group leaders out there, beware, the last person you kicked out of    █
 █  your channel for having a 1-node board might possibly be your             █
 █  competition's next store supplier or multi-node courier.                  █
 █                                                                            █

 █      The first courier group I will be commenting on is RiSC (Rise in      █
 █  Superior Couriering), exactly what they are, superior.  RiSC has had the  █
 █  most superb courier team since the very beginning.  They display their    █
 █  unparallelled ability to the scene on a daily basis.  I have personally   █
 █  witnessed the amazing speed and gumption of a RiSC trader while leeching  █
 █  <grin> off of a RiSC distro site named "The Shallow Grave."  At the       █
 █  time, the SysOps of this blazing 4 node board were Lord Rook and Gate     █
 █  Keeper.  I first came to this BBS on a recommendation from a friend.      █
 █  When I got on this board I was truly amazed at the size and speed of it.  █
 █  Supplied by RiSC trader 'The Technomancer,' this was the fastest site I   █
 █  had ever been on.  In the two months I was on this board, Techno had      █
 █  pumped in over 2.4 gigs of fast warez.  I had a chance to talk to Techno  █
 █  a few times and he explained that being in a group like RiSC, almost      █
 █  demanded that he be the best, whether relying on personal ambition or     █
 █  not, Techno defined RiSC, to me, as the best couriering group in the      █
 █  world!                                                                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Now let me rate RiSC.  Although they definately do their job and do   █
 █  it very well, they are hard to find.  In my 'career' on the net and in    █
 █  the PC scene, I have never heard of or seen a RiSC site, or a dedicated   █
 █  channel on IRC.  This, to me, means they have a mail recruit system       █
 █  which, as I've expressed in the past, is not a good way to get in touch   █
 █  with the majority of warez people.  I do realize that most RiSC members   █
 █  are in PWA and DOD, but I am sure that a lot of others don't know this    █
 █  and have no idea how to apply.  So, my rating for RiSC is a 9.5.  A       █
 █  better recruiting system would benefit the group as a whole and the       █
 █  boards they supply.                                                       █

 █      The next group I will be rating is fATE.  fATE is the product of two  █
 █  groups that merged about a year ago: TiC and iLA.  I was a member of TiC  █
 █  at the time of the merger, formerly known as Vendetta.  TiC was headed    █
 █  at the time by Red Dog, an outstanding leader with tremendous couriering  █
 █  ability.  Since the merger, Red Dog has moved from Senior to net courier  █
 █  and now to nothing.  He left fATE around Christmas of 1995 (I am told)    █
 █  for reasons unknown to me.  This I feel is one of fATE's major problems.  █
 █  They seem to have lost their sense of direction and organization.  This   █
 █  being sparked by Red Dog's departure from fATE and his diminishing        █
 █  contribution to fATE.  I am not blaming all of fATE's problems on Red     █
 █  Dog, in fact just the opposite.  Red Dog was an awesome leader.           █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Despite all of fATE's problems with organization and the power        █
 █  struggles within fATE, they have assembled one of the best teams on the   █
 █  net today.  They keep their sites full, and continually keep other        █
 █  courier groups on their toes.  They have out-tagged other courier groups  █
 █  3 to 1 on the net, and are doing great in that department.  So, my        █
 █  rating for fATE is a 7.5.  Overcome all the organization and power        █
 █  problems and you'll have a great team!                                    █

 █      RTS in its earlier days was a feirce competitor of RiSC.  RTS was     █
 █  one of the top courier gropus around, with lightning-fast traders and a   █
 █  superb council that certainly gave direction to the group.  Around early  █
 █  1995, RTS was said to have died, as a mutual decision between senior      █
 █  members of RTS.  Since mid to late 1995, RTS had once again emerged in    █
 █  the scene with a great internet staff as well as telecom staff.  The old  █
 █  days of RTS are h ere again, and kicking ass!                             █
 █                                                                            █
 █      RTS, as I said before, has assembled a great couriering team.  With   █
 █  couriers from well established groups such as MALiCE, RiSC, and others.   █
 █  I see a great team here with perserverance and strong leadership, and an  █
 █  able staff to once again be a top couriering gropu.                       █
 █                                                                            █
 █      On occasion I go through different channels to see what's going on,   █
 █  and I always seem to bump into an RTS courier no matter where I'm at,     █
 █  and they are always ofering RTS's application and several loaders.  This  █
 █  is a fantastic way of recruiting new members.  They show their            █
 █  experience in their versatility, and in my opinion, will rise to          █
 █  greatness (again) and perhaps the next RiSC.  My rating for RTS, a solid  █
 █  9.5.  Everything is there, they just need a bit of re-establishment.      █

 █      When MC first began, it was a small couriering group with little      █
 █  known presence and very few affiliations.  MC has had a slow start in     █
 █  the scene but is doing great!  I've had the pleasure of watching their    █
 █  popularity grow as their NFO grows.  I must admit, even I thought MC      █
 █  would fail in the early stages of its birth, but behind its strong        █
 █  leader, The Wicked One, it has emerged to be a great group.  My rating    █
 █  for Mindcrash so far is 7.8.  They have a great team, with great          █
 █  leadership and support, they just need to work on their speed and         █
 █  'presence.'                                                               █

 █      My last review will be of MALiCE.  MALiCE is one of the strongest     █
 █  groups in the scene right now, with some of the fastest traders ever,     █
 █  such as Winterhawk, and 187.  MALiCE has been compared to the early days  █
 █  of RiSC, and is said to have one of the best couriering team ever         █
 █  assembled.  The sheer determination and efficiency of this group has      █
 █  pushed them to the top, and their popularity grows almost on a daily      █
 █  basis.                                                                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █      MALiCE has had a great year so far and is continuing to dominate the  █
 █  couriering scene among the newest releasers and traders.  What I mean by  █
 █  new is the newly established groups, such as Legacy, Motiv8, and others.  █
 █  MALiCE doesn't seem to respect other groups, or potential applicants      █
 █  that much, though.  When I entered their channel on an invite, I was      █
 █  abruptly kicked by Pericles with the reason "And you are...,"  this       █
 █  shows me that their rise to startum and dominance over other groups has   █
 █  gone directly to their heads.  In my opinion, this is not a good way to   █
 █  handle people who are interested in the group.  I just don't think they   █
 █  have respect for people, which is a major problem when recruiting.  So,   █
 █  my rating for MALiCE is a 7.  They have great couriering ability, but     █
 █  lack respect and patience, which, as proven in the past, can be           █
 █  disasterous.                                                              █

 █  fATE has the potential to rank with the best, they just need to plant     █

 █      When a dupe occurs, the group usually gets put down and often         █
 █  often receives a lot of flak from the public even if the release was a    █
 █  mistake.  Groups that purposely go out of their way to dupe should go     █
 █  down because they don't deserve to be in the scene.  However, if it's a   █
 █  new group and they do they're own release or rip and didn't know it had   █
 █  already been released than that's ok it's a mistake and in most cases     █
 █  the public just gets another chance to get a cool file.  As long as the   █
 █  the group that duped acknowledges their mistake and gives the credit of   █
 █  the release to the original group, then the group that duped should be    █
 █  left alone.                                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Take for example Domination In Couriering who just duped Legacy.  It  █
 █  was a mistake on our part because we did not know that Legacy already     █
 █  released a 4 disk rip of CivNet (which still includes the modem play).    █
 █  I didn't find out about it until 45 minutes after I started offering the  █
 █  files.  We thought we were bettering the scene and we were.  The file     █
 █  was leeched over 250 times.  I apologized to individual members of        █
 █  Legacy and to the whole group.  Legacy was quick to forgive us, and       █
 █  here's a quote from Rebel Chicken in a private conversation we had the    █
 █  day of the dupe :                                                         █
 █                                                                            █
 █  "For all I care, DiC helped the scene.  There were a lot of people who    █
 █  were looking for the 4 disk rip from Legacy, so DiC helped put it back    █
 █  in circulation.  Duping is not good, but it's not THAT BAD either.  As    █
 █  long as you give credit to the original group that released it, then it   █
 █  is fine with me.  I don't see why everyone is going out of their way to   █
 █  diss DiC."                                                                █

 █      If and when a group accidentily dupes don't be so harsh and critical  █
 █  of them just tell them of their mistake and they'll do just like I did    █
 █  apologize and acknowledge their error and everyone can move on to more    █
 █  important stuff, like the next release.  If the file that was duped was   █
 █  popular with the public anyways, then over all that release helped make   █
 █  a lot of people happy.  People who play the game wouldn't really care if  █
 █  it came from Legacy or DiC, and both versions helped the scene over all.  █
 █                                                                            █
 █      In closing, DiC apologizes to any bbs couriers who were nuked for     █
 █  uploading a dupe.  We made a mistake and if it got you nuked off a big    █
 █  board we are very sorry.  Please tell us if we can help you regain your   █

 █  leeching off the government of the United States.  From my sources, a     █
 █  Razor member and friend, I have confirmed that at least one of the        █
 █  Hybrid leaders are leeching off of the Canadian welfare system, NOT the   █
 █  American government.  So all that stuff I said about Bob Dole and Newt    █
 █  Gingrich turned out to be irrelevant.                                     █

 █  person.  Even though that person is very trustworthy and reliable,        █

 █  HR (net coord for MALiCE), but he refused to give them to Winterhawk.     █
 █  Winterhawk wanted the IP #'s so that she can add them to some site and    █
 █  help Manhunter set-up accounts for people on sites.  Whatever dialog      █
 █  actually occured between HR and Winterhawk is unknown, but Winterhawk     █
 █  compared HR to a Hitler/dictator.  She believed that HR wanted complete   █
 █  Is, who gets added and so on, and didn't want to share his job or have    █
 █  any help from her.  At this point HR, already being on a brink of         █
 █  leaving, decided that he had enough and decided to leave.  I would like   █
 █  to repeat : HR was ALREADY tired of the way things were working out for   █
 █  him in MALiCE and Winterhawk was just a minute reason to leave.           █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I would like to say that none of the parties should be blamed for     █
 █  anything.  Winterhawk is more than happy to have HR back in MALiCE, and   █
 █  HR is NOT joining another group, and MAY get back to MALiCE after he      █

 █  main reason for having so many new groups flourish is that people aren't  █
 █  satisfied with their current position in a group, or, more specifically,  █
 █  aren't getting the respect that they expect when they are a part of a     █
 █  team.  So I ask...  "What should it feel like to be a member of a         █
 █  group?"                                                                   █
 █                                                                            █
 █      When a member applies, he is usually greeted by a not-so-friendly     █
 █  crowd that somehow feels bigger than him.  This is all egos, and I don't  █
 █  expect that to end, because after all, we're all human.  The applicant    █
 █  will often spend in the range of thirty to sixty minutes waiting to get   █
 █  the application generator or just a flat out "no" response.  If the       █
 █  applicant was lucky enough to experience the first, he'll promptly fill   █
 █  out the application and look for someone to send it to.  As soon as that  █
 █  application is sent in, the prospective member has literally signed a     █
 █  pact saying that he will be dedicated to the specific group.  This is     █
 █  what many group leaders never seem to understand, and is the point where  █
 █  the member will either serve the group, always feeling lowly, or will     █
 █  join, feel big for a bit, then run off and make his own group because     █
 █  he wasn't getting the respect he felt he deserved.                        █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I'm surprised that I have to say this, but a member is the most       █
 █  crucial thing to a group.  The leadership often doesn't understand that,  █
 █  and assumes the member to be a slave that must complete his task for      █
 █  fear of being flogged.  A member should have much say in the group.  The  █
 █  only difference between a senior and a member should be that a senior is  █
 █  there to coordinate, as opposed to a member which is there to provide.    █
 █  Two completely different jobs, neither of which should take an excessive  █
 █  precedence over the other.  A senior position, if the particular group    █
 █  even has one, is just a position given to somebody that would like to     █
 █  coordinate that has much experience in the group, possibly been with it   █
 █  from the start.  What's even worse is when there's a group that has not   █
 █  just a council, but a Founder, Presidents, Vice Presidents, Seniors,      █
 █  Head Honchos, Division Honchos, and THEN members, assuming there's        █
 █  anybody left.  I don't know about you, but being a member in that kind    █
 █  of group wouldn't feel too good.  That leads me to believe that it is     █
 █  often better to be a member in a "normal" group than to be a senior in    █
 █  one with such a variety of positions.                                     █
 █                                                                            █
 █      A member is a vital person in a group.  Members need to get more      █
 █  respect in the scene, and begin to have a greater say in the activities   █
 █  of the group.  We are often confused when we see members leave groups,    █
 █  and we assume that the member just wasn't dedicated, but this is often    █
 █  not the case.  To all leaders : put yourselves in the position of a       █
 █  member sometimes, and think to yourself "If I were this guy, would I be   █
 █  getting the respect that I need?  Would I have any power in what goes on  █
 █  in the group that I have dedicated myself to?"  If either of your         █
 █  answers is no, it's time to make some changes in the structure of your    █
 █  group.                                                                    █

 █      I have noticed a certain trend in the scene lately.  It is a trend    █
 █  that is not beneficial for anyone.  Stealing members.  Now, competition   █
 █  is good, but this is not.  We all know who it is that is on the constant  █
 █  lookout for suppliers and couriers to steal.  In #Legacy, we are always   █
 █  on the lookout for tKLP.  Why?  Because everyone knows that the instant   █
 █  they enter the channel, they will be looking for the best suppliers and   █
 █  becoming their "Friends."  For most of us, these attempts are totally     █
 █  obvious, but for some of us, we fall into the trap and end up in a        █
 █  different group.                                                          █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I was in #Legacy, minding my own business, when all of a sudden,      █
 █  tKLP was messaging me saying "Zup Buddy!?"  I thought to myslef: "Have I  █
 █  talked to him before?  He's being awful friendly..."  Knowing that he     █
 █  was probably going to ask me to leave Legacy, I played along.  He said    █
 █  "I've heard you're a pretty impressive supplier."  And I said "Sure, I    █
 █  guess so.  I supply for Legacy a lot."  The next message I received read  █
 █  as follows: "Could I interest you in a RoR membership?"  My answer was a  █
 █  simple "No."  I fear that others, possibly from other groups, will have   █
 █  a different answer.  Unfortunately, if tKLP is the one that's asking,     █
 █  they'll end up in a group they'd probably rather not be in.               █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Everyone knows that this is not the first time tKLP has done this.    █
 █  It didn't hurt anyone this time, because there's no way in hell that I'd  █
 █  join RoR.  The point is, if your group is not good enough to compete,     █
 █  don't go stealing other group's suppliers.  It's bad sportsmanship, and   █
 █  it's bad public relations.                                                █

 █    Yes we all know by now that AOL has provided a link to the IRC for all  █
 █  of the AOL'ers to flock to our homes, for months on end, people have      █
 █  been stereotyping AOL as lame.  If you looked at how many bans there are  █
 █  on aol.com, it is a pitiful sight.  Are the bans necessary, are all AOL   █
 █  people lame?  I say no.  What is bad about people from another online     █
 █  service comeing to help spread our warez around and help us?  Nothing.    █
 █  Are we trying to set back the IRC Civilization to that of the early 19th  █
 █  century of the US?  Do we want to place a label on AOL and stereotype     █
 █  them all?  If so, you're an "Idiot".  AOL is a cheap and in most cases,   █
 █  free in all parts around the world.  It reaches out to more people than   █
 █  IRC ever could.  By letting AOL expand to IRC, the scene would only be    █
 █  reaching further heights of greatness because AOL has a lot of users to   █
 █  reach.  Really, isn't that what we all want?  To help people who are too  █
 █  new to help themselves and to spread the names Razor, Legacy, fATE, MC,   █
 █  and RiSC?  I'm not saying that we should all start using AOL, but I'm     █
 █  saying that we should welcome them to what has been for years "our"       █
 █  world.                                                                    █
