Emulating RCN-11.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 cp acidview pictview
  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, partly modified port of The Emularity.

The Emularity is a multi-platform JavaScript emulator that supports the running of software for legacy computer platforms in a web browser. 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.

 │      This issue of RCN new features some "fun stuff" to do when you're     │
 │  bored.  Rebel Chicken and I got bored (again) of the same-old same-old    │
 │  mag, and we fealt that just editorials (of which we have gotten a record  │
 │  number this week) isn't enough interaction between our readers and us.    │
 │  New in this issue, you will find a "Warez-IQ" questionnaire of some       │
 │  trivia questions about the scene today.  You will also find a voting      │

 █      Hi!  First, congrats for your excellent e-mag!  Definitely the best!  █
 █  I have a suggestion, though.  Please put an option that will              █
 █  automatically change the music sequentially, cause you get bored reading  █
 █  the huge mag with the same music, and it's hard to go back to change the  █
 █  music.                                                                    █

 █      Great idea!  We, the editors, probably don't notice the problem as    █
 █  much because most of the time we're reading the mag, we're in AcidDraw    █
 █  writing or proofreading, not actually running the EXE.  We'll try to      █

 █  Note : NEW, and IMPROVED!  We have now implemented this idea, so you'll   █

 █      I can not understand why many groups in the scene hate each other     █
 █  based on the fact that they are competing against each other or because   █
 █  of accidental dupes.  The way I see it, we are all in this together and   █
 █  despite how lame this sounds, we should stand united and with united      █
 █  roots we won't be overcome.  How do you people at RCN feel on this?       █
 █                                                                            █

 █      If you're waiting for all the groups to unite, you've got a long      █
 █  wait ahead of you.  I don't argue that there should be separate groups    █
 █  because some people just don't get along with others.  I do argue,        █
 █  however, that we would be better off with just one big group, or          █
 █  "united" as you put it.  Competition is what makes the scene have         █
 █  quality releases.  At times, one's competitive spirit will overcome him   █
 █  and cause him to fuck up on releases, but that's besides the point.  If   █
 █  the scene weren't based on competition, why would we have it?  Surely     █
 █  you don't think that we actually USE any of the software we release,      █
 █  right?!                                                                   █

 █  files being online.  No one chases their files down like Novell does,     █
 █  consider this just as a warning and say it is bullshit if you want, BUT,  █
 █  I have seen what the cops do to a house when they search it, and I have   █
 █  seen friends lose all of their computer equipment just over Novell.       █

 █      This is a response to the articles about tKLP and RoR, and their      █
 █  involvement with Legacy and NFS.  First, on the topic of tKLP sabotaging  █
 █  NFS, the only one who sabotaged NFS was the dumbass who released          █
 █  Softram 96 because they were told by tKLP to hurry and beat his group.    █
 █  Competing groups have never, to my knowledge, told another group to       █
 █  hurry so that they could beat their own group.  On the subject of tKLP    █
 █  'stealing' members, according to the article written by Akira 7, it       █
 █  didn't appear to me that he was asking him to leave LGC for RoR.  He      █
 █  could very easily have been in both groups, believe me, I am.  Now onto   █
 █  the wars between LGC and tKLP and other RoR members.  Why not just let    █
 █  it die?   I am pretty sure I speak for most people when I say ENOUGH IS   █
 █  ENOUGH, we are getting tired of reading and hearing about it.  The lame   █
 █  channel takeover attempts, the LGC SUCKS DICK, ROR SUCKS DICK.  It is     █
 █  all childish, instead of wasting your time bashing the other people,      █
 █  why not do something productive, spread some warez, make some money, get  █
 █  laid, whatever, just quit the wars.                                       █
 █                                                                            █

 █      I will agree with you that Akira 7 could have very well been in both  █
 █  RoR and LGC, and maybe the article didn't do a very good job of           █
 █  clarifying it, but tKLP has continuously harassed my members trying to    █
 █  either get them to join RoR or do other little favors for him.  We are    █
 █  not in a war with RoR, a war involves interaction of two sides.  It       █

 █      When couriering first started in the scene, it wasn't about editing   █
 █  file_id.diz's.  It wasn't about offering in channels.  It was about       █
 █  competing with your competitors on the boards.  Anyone can edit a DIZ,    █
 █  anyone can type /plist, but not everyone can get warez fast enough to     █
 █  upload them to the biggest boards.  You rated RTS as #1.  In this, I      █
 █  totally disagree.  RTS is a very respectable group, and I myself am       █
 █  friends with good old Ordnance, but they are clearly not #1.  RiSC is at  █
 █  the top.  They have a hidden channel on IRC so lamers don't try to get    █
 █  in #RiSC, bug people, etc.  Only the leetest people know what channel     █
 █  RiSC is in, and yes, they do have sites, and they are not public or       █
 █  anonymous sites, they're the way it should be.  They are private sites,   █
 █  therefore you have to be in RiSC or be very respected to be on them.      █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Warez should go to people who make the scene run, not lamers who      █
 █  beg.  Knowing Park Central is their WHQ, and the best board in the world  █
 █  statistically and popularity-wise, each week the top 10 uploaders are     █
 █  from RiSC.  This is what couriering is about, it's about racing and       █
 █  competition and having fun while doing it.  They have the best couriers   █
 █  in the business.                                                          █

 █      In second place, I believe, is MALiCE.  They do some offering on the  █
 █  net, but they are strong BBS couriers like RiSC as well.  Call the top    █
 █  boards, MALiCE people will be on the top 10 as well.  In third place      █
 █  should be RTS, they are strong in both areas, but not superb in BBS       █
 █  couriering like RiSC and MALiCE.  These are just the corrections I would  █

 █  Windows 95 is a piece of shit for so long I finally had to make the       █

 █      Okay, format the drives, install Windows 95 (30 minutes of hell).     █
 █  OK, it starts right up!  Seems okay at first, I am a little lost, how do  █
 █  I add DOS programs?  How do I edit pifs?  ARGH!!  I fuck with it for      █
 █  about 3 hours, won't run my CAD program without a reboot, BBS runs like   █
 █  shit if I multitask, FUCK THIS!  Reformat, reinstall OS/2...  That was    █
 █  my first impression of the wonderful world of "Wild" Bill Gates.  About   █
 █  a month later the hatred diminished a tad.  Okay, give it another shot.   █
 █  Format the drives, reinstall, first night, sucked, second night, hmm,     █
 █  found some cool shit.  After running for four months.. I love it!  Now    █
 █  I have no problem running ANYTHING I want, Hexen and Doom II run great,   █
 █  my CAD runs great!  When I am on the net now, I just keep opening         █
 █  windows without a worry.  I usually have MiRC, 2 CuteFTPs, Eudora,        █
 █  MS-DOS prompt, Iparty (which is voice talking to multiple friends at      █
 █  once, and it works, not like IPhone) and moving around in all these       █
 █  windows is not a problem.  It may not have the absolute power of Linux,   █
 █  but I also have a shitload of new apps to try out each week, and tons of  █
 █  help if I have problems.  Plus, it looks pretty!  So, for anyone who      █
 █  says Windows 95 sucks, either you haven't given it a real try, or you     █

 █   Q  : In last week's issue of RCN, you submitted an article accusing      █
 █        tKLP of asking you to join RoR.  When he asked you to join, did he  █
 █        at any point, ask you to leave Legacy for RoR?  If so, what were    █
 █        tactics did he use?                                                 █

 █   A  : Yes, tKLP asked me to leave Legacy.  He "swore" that Legacy was     █
 █        going to die that night, and that I shouldn't waste my time with a  █
 █        dying group.  He then proceded to ask me to leave Legacy in order   █
 █        to join RoR.                                                        █

 █   Q  : On what basis could he "swear" that Legacy would die that very      █
 █        night?                                                              █

 █   Q  : How was tKLP and his friends planning to permanently break down     █
 █        Legacy?  What was tKLP's plan?                                      █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : tKLP said that he would, along with his friends, take down #Legacy  █
 █        permanently.  He also said that they would follow Legacy to         █
 █        whatever new channel we came up with.  tKLP also said he was going  █
 █        to convince key members to switch groups.  This was all part of     █
 █        tKLP's plan to "kill Legacy."                                       █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Why did you not believe tKLP?  What stopped you from leaving a      █
 █        "dying group"?                                                      █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : I thought it was possible that the three groups would try to take   █
 █        down Legacy, but I knew it was not going to be successful.  I have  █
 █        been a member of FSW, Vendetta, and then Legacy, and Legacy is      █
 █        here to stay.  If Legacy did die, and I were to join another group  █
 █        it would not be RoR.                                                █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : What would turn you off from joining RoR?                           █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : The main turn off from RoR is their leadership.  I have absolutely  █
 █        NO respect for tKLP as a leader.                                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Why do you not trust the leadership of RoR when it is someone as    █
 █        well respected as tKLP?                                             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : I would not call tKLP "well respected."  He is one of the worst     █
 █        leaders I have ever met.  He has been kicked out of his own group,  █
 █        and is constantly trying to steal suppliers from other groups.  He  █
 █        does not care about his group or his members, and he has no style.  █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : When tKLP asked you to leave Legacy to join RoR, and you simply     █
 █        said "No", what was his response?                                   █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : tKLP said, "Hey man, if you want to ride into the ground with       █
 █        Legacy, don't blame me."  He then asked me to consider joining RoR  █
 █        after Legacy died.  tKLP has asked me to leave Legacy for RoR many  █
 █        times even though I keep saying "No."  He is definitely persistent. █
 █                                                                            █

 █   A  : I was sitting on IRC one night thinking about how I wasn't really   █
 █        giving 100% to my other duties, mainly TSC (The Sixthed Circle).    █
 █        I have decided to devote more time to my utilities group by         █
 █        leaving MindCrash for now.  It takes too much work to do a good     █
 █        job and it wouldn't be fair for MindCrash if I only half-tried.     █

 █   Q  : If TSC doesn't work out, will you go back to MindCrash?             █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : No, I have made my bed already and I will lay in it.  I can't go    █
 █        back 3 months from now and ask to be a senior again, that would be  █
 █        a bad thing.  I made it clear that I have nothing against anyone    █
 █        in MindCrash.  The Wicked One and Blitzkrieg stood by me until      █
 █        the end.  I am sure that MC will continue to be one of the best     █
 █        courier groups in the world, doing what they do best, couriering.   █
 █        I will miss MC a lot because they are a tight band of couriers.  I  █
 █        have much respect for The Wicked One and Blitzkrieg.  I have been   █
 █        in MindCrash since the very start and I will sincerely miss MC.     █

 █   A  : With my current resources, and with proper management, TSC should   █
 █        do just fine.  I'm not going to lie, it is hard to start a release  █
 █        group nowadays because there are so many of them out there.  TSC    █
 █        isn't formed on the premise of ruling the scene.  We only want to   █

 █   Q  : What are the policies of TSC?  Will TSC members be allowed to join  █

 █   A  : That varies a lot since it varies with each person and how much     █
 █        they contribute to TSC.  I don't really have a problem with it if   █
 █        the person is dedicated 100% to TSC and can do other shit as well   █
 █        for other groups.                                                   █

 █   Q  : Many TSC members are also in MC, it must be very beneficial for     █
 █        TSC to be affiliated with such a strong courier group.  Is TSC and  █
 █        MC officially sister groups?                                        █

 █   A  : Yes, TSC and MC are sister groups.                                  █
 █                                                                            █

 █   A  : Releasing is going great, our suppliers have done well so far, and  █
 █        MC has done a great job spreading our files.                        █

 █   A  : We will being doing utilities for now since they are my favorite.   █
 █        Great games come and go, but a great utilities stick around my HD   █
 █        longer.                                                             █

 █   Q  : Do you feel that TSC will grow in numbers as well as in release     █
 █        power?                                                              █

 █   A  : I would rather keep the numbers within the group small.  I know     █
 █        everyone in the group right now, so we have less conflicts.  If we  █
 █        do expand our operations, then that would be fine as well since it  █
 █        is all part of doing business.  We will survive as long as we keep  █
 █        up our standards.                                                   █

 █   Q  : Legacy is a fast-growing games group and is now considered one of   █
 █        the top 3.  Why do you feel that Legacy has risen to such           █
 █        greatness in such a short period of time?                           █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Legacy is like the "Third Reich" for Rebel Chicken and myself.  We  █
 █        started out with FSW, and boy was that a disaster, a disaster to    █
 █        the rest of the scene, though.  In reality, it was the place where  █
 █        Rebel Chicken and I learned what to do in a group, or, more         █
 █        specifically what NOT to do.  It was amazing, we were twisted from  █
 █        the start.  Even the name was retarded.  After FSW, we started      █
 █        Vendetta.  Vendetta was much more organized, did a much better job  █
 █        of releasing quality, not just anything we found in a gutter, it    █
 █        didn't just use the word of others when it came to dupe checking,   █
 █        and our members were much more dedicated.  The group came down      █
 █        rather abruptly, though, when school started, and we thoguth we'd   █
 █        be overwhelmed with work (we were wrong).  We missed the scene too  █
 █        much, and just as soon as we left, we were back in it, this time    █
 █        with a plan, yes, another one.  So far, that plan has worked.       █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Since Legacy is an improvement upon two younger and less            █
 █        experienced, do you feel that many of the smaller groups today      █
 █        will somehow die and come back in the future as a more significant  █
 █        team?                                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : That's part of the reason why I always treat young groups with      █
 █        respect.  I said this in the last issue of RCN, and I guess I'll    █
 █        say it again.  It takes ambition to start a new group, and all      █
 █        group leaders should be credited for being courageous enough to     █
 █        join the competition.  If a group breaks down because the faculty   █
 █        isn't dedicated enough, that's one thing.  If a group breaks down   █
 █        because its methods are not right, that's another thing.  The       █
 █        latter is a perfectly good example of someone striving for a        █
 █        second chance, and that's the beauty of the scene.  You can always  █
 █        have another chance.  I wouldn't expect every small group that      █
 █        comes up and then dies to become the next great, but I'm sure that  █
 █        a small percentage of the groups will, and we should recognize the  █
 █        groups for that small percent.                                      █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Legacy has released a lot of software that would be considered      █
 █        "Budget."  Are these programs as inexpensive as people claim, and   █
 █        if so, will that stop you from releasing them?                      █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Legacy started because the two groups that preceded it had too      █
 █        many broken releases, either not properly cracked or just not well  █
 █        packaged.  We have dedicated ourselves to releasing quality games   █
 █        that people will want.  Our main serious fuckup to date was that    █
 █        game called "Bass Fishing Classics."  It was a store release, but   █
 █        that in no way justified its release.  If any game that Legacy has  █
 █        released was budget, that was it!  Apart from that, we are looking  █
 █        for quality.  I was recently criticized on IRC about a release we   █
 █        did a few days back, "Pinball 4000."  The person was trying to      █
 █        tell me that the game sold for a mere $14.99, a "budget" program    █
 █        that should not have been released.  That seemed preposterous to    █
 █        me.  I don't download many games, but I did download this game due  █
 █        to its size (1 disk!) and was quite pleased with the result.  A     █
 █        seven minute download and I got a very nice game!  Money doesn't    █
 █        tie into the scene, we download programs free of charge, and we     █
 █        have no right to bash on a program when it wasn't a $69.95 game.    █
 █        Legacy is used to releasing those types of games, but you must      █
 █        note of the time, it's January, and not that many companies are     █
 █        publishing new software.  Instead of expecting $70 games, Legacy    █
 █        looks for games that may have been missed, or games that never      █
 █        made it out because the crack was too hard.  While sifting through  █
 █        the programs, we often find these smaller games that could be very  █
 █        nice releases.  Pinball 4000 was one of them (Bass Fishing          █
 █        Classics was not :-).                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Legacy has released many games that have worked perfectly.          █
 █        However, releases such as "Prisoner of Ice" have managed to seep    █
 █        through.  What do you do when you release a program that is not     █
 █        fully functioning?                                                  █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Prisoner of Ice was our first release, and we were not as           █
 █        experienced in releasing games only as we now are.  What do we do   █
 █        when such a program is released?  Hehehe, well, I usually just      █
 █        blame it on Rebel Chicken!  Heheh, after that, though, I, along     █
 █        with the rest of the Legacy staff, will do my best to help the      █
 █        user get the game to work, even if the problem directly involves    █
 █        his computer.  We are here to get our programs to work on our       █
 █        end users' computers.  If that involves helping them install a      █
 █        program that has nothing to do with ours, so be it.                 █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Legacy is well known for having one of the most user-friendly       █
 █        installers for all their games.  Many people have grown used to     █
 █        merely typing LGC-INST.  Do you feel that it is becoming a          █
 █        necessity in the scene to have an installer?                        █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : I think it's more important for a games group to have an installer  █
 █        than for a utils group to have one.  It is virtually unheard of to  █
 █        release a disk game, and CD games are no longer as easy to install  █
 █        as the old disk games were.  We now use multi-volume ARJ files and  █
 █        subdirectories and aah!  By the time you have typed all the         █
 █        required parameters for ARJ, you've forgotten what the release      █
 █        was!  With utils, this isn't so much a problem because most utils   █
 █        do come on disks.  Also, a games group is there to provide          █
 █        entertainment, and it is in synch with the mood of our releases to  █
 █        have a fun looking EXE to present to our users.                     █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Why did Legacy pick MindCrash as their official couriers?           █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Being a games group, Legacy gets its releases couriered no matter   █
 █        what.  Our problem isn't in finding people to get our releases      █
 █        out, it's in finding a couriering force that will be dedicated to   █
 █        us when one of our members needs a release or what not.  It just    █
 █        happens to be that MindCrash is an awesome couriering force, both   █
 █        dedication-wise and speed-wise.                                     █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : Why doesn't Legacy release utils?                                   █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : We believe that we can stay much more on task if we concentrate     █
 █        on one type of program.  We have enough experience and have tried   █
 █        the other ways we thought might work, and this one seems to be the  █
 █        best so far.  Ripping and cracking games isn't easy, and having to  █
 █        concentrate both on that and on utils would be a bit overwhelming.  █
 █        When we do get utils, however, we give them to our sister group,    █
 █        Mayhem, as they give us their games when they have them.            █
 █                                                                            █

 █   A  : Private sites are very important for the group.  Without private    █

 █   A  : We are not currently supporting anonymous sites, but once we are    █
 █        organized and get all our private sites back up, I want to start    █
 █        doing anonymous sites again because it helps spread files to the    █
 █        "lesser people".                                                    █

 █   A  : I am the MOTiV8 site coordinator.  I help members get on the sites  █
 █        with ease.  I make sure that the sites are being supported.  If     █
 █        the site is not supported, I make sure that it is before the site   █

 █   A  : We aren't concentrating on BBS couriering too much right now, but   █

 █   Q  : I have great respect for MOTiV8 and tend to give it the benefit of  █
 █        the doubt, but how much does MOTiV8 concentrate on Net IRC          █
 █        spreading.  It is a rare moment when I see a MOTiV8 courier either  █
 █        Legacy releases or any other releases.                              █

 █   A  : Unfortunately, not too much at the moment but since our private     █
 █        sites are back up, we can grab releases a lot easier and you might  █

 █   Q  : Althought I doubt it is true, because I know that MOTiV8 has many   █
 █        dedicated members, but is MOTiV8 going through a low point right    █
 █        now?                                                                █

 █   Q  : Why will Rush specialize in utilities?  What are the advantages of  █
 █        specializing in utilities and not in games?                         █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : We have many good games connections, but many Rush members feel     █
 █        that the "scene" is getting closer.  We feel that the utilities     █
 █        scene comes closer to "the heart" more than the game scene does.    █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : In what way is the utilities scene "closer to the heart"?  Is Rush  █
 █        specializing in utilities because it is easier to find a utility    █
 █        to release than it is to find a game to release?                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Rush started as doing utilities only, but then we thought about     █
 █        releasing games.  For most of us, we feel that it is more fun to    █
 █        release utilities than it is to release games.                      █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : More fun?  One can play a game, but one cannot play a utilitiy.     █
 █        Why would releasing something that cannot be played be more fun     █
 █        than releasing something that one can play?                         █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : Releasing utilities is more fun than releasing games.  I am not     █
 █        talking for everyone in Rush because I never play games.  Rush can  █
 █        help more people by releasing utilities.                            █
 █                                                                            █

 █   A  : Our crew works very hard and we have great relationships with our   █
 █        suppliers.  We are only trying to support "the scene" with some     █
 █        good titles.                                                        █

 █   A  : I heard rumors that SoftIce for Win95 was a dupe, others say that   █
 █        it wasn't, but I really liked that release.                         █

 █   Q  : Yes, it was a dupe of a release from Hemp from mid 1995.  What      █
 █        will Rush do in order to prevent future dupes?                      █

 █   A  : We dupe check our releases on boards like Beyond Akira and then we  █
 █        check with couriering groups on IRC.  We check a release around     █
 █        5-6 times before releasing it.  From this year on, we will never    █

 █   A  : SNC is not a branch off of NFS.  SNC was started for the fun of     █
 █        releasing warez and getting them out to the people.  We do have     █
 █        many NFS members in our group but we are not a branch off.  NFS     █

 █   A  : NFS did not like us when we first started off because many NFS      █
 █        members decided to join SNC.  Fallout kicked out everyone from NFS  █
 █        that was also in SNC.  We have two SNC seniors that were kicked     █

 █   A  : I personally like NFS and I think it can be a very successful if    █
 █        the council does not fuck up.  Fallout and I are friends and I      █
 █        like him.                                                           █

 █   Q  : You were the President of NBC before it died, will SNC be another   █

 █   A  : Yes, I was the President of NBC.  I do not think that we will die.  █
 █        NBC was very unorganized and we made some bad mistakes at the very  █
 █        start, and that will not happen again.                              █
 █                                                                            █
 █   Q  : What were some of those bad choices, and how will you prevent them  █
 █        from happening again?                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █   A  : We basically let in everyone that applied and we never checked      █
 █        references.  I will make sure to check references from now on.      █
 █                                                                            █

 █   A  : We would make new applicants give 3 or 4 references and we would    █
 █        talk to them.  We would then put the new applicant on trial to see  █
 █        if he can release like he said he can.  If they meet the deadline,  █
 █        then we would consider them to be a full member.                    █

 █  The following is an open letter (Submitted to RCN for publication) to     █
 █  all in the scene:                                                         █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Though many of you probably don't know me, I am writing this letter   █
 █  to all so that you may know the error of my ways, and so that you won't   █
 █  repeat any of my mistakes.                                                █
 █                                                                            █
 █      For six months, I was a part of fATE.  I was the SiteOp of their Net  █
 █  WHQ.  My FTP site logged more than 1.8 terabytes of transfers during      █
 █  my tenure as a fATE operative, and more than 30 gigs of warez were        █
 █  pumped into the scene because of it.  By most accounts, including those   █
 █  of g0d and Anti Derivative, my bosses, my site was the second most 'leet  █
 █  site on the Net.  I take solace in the fact that I was able to provide    █
 █  this service for so many.  That makes what I have to say harder.          █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I am taking leave of the scene permanently, so that I may pursue the  █
 █  education that my Internet connection was originally intended to          █
 █  support.  I don't take this decision lightly, but I believe it's one      █
 █  that has to be made.  But before I go, I would like to say a few          █
 █  thoughts about the many things on my mind.                                █
 █                                                                            █
 █      fATE, as a group, has more dedicated people in it than most groups    █
 █  do.  The new people that fATE constantly recruits only make the group     █
 █  stronger, and more adept at couriering warez.  LeoDLioN has done          █
 █  nothing but work his tail off since he became a senior, and his work      █
 █  is reflected in the number of quality warez couriered by fATE.  Touch     █
 █  Tone is a kickbutt releaser, and Doobie does a good job managing          █
 █  sites.  In general, most of the members of fATE work very hard to get     █
 █  things done for the group on and off the IRC.  My WHQ FTP site, Sickle's  █
 █  Cell FTP, and Sewerat's 13th Floor sites were always full with at least   █
 █  200 megs of 0 day warez.                                                  █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Not everything was rosy, though.  During the first week of December,  █
 █  several fATE members had a conference call.  Discussed in this            █
 █  conference call were the future of the group, the image of the group,     █
 █  and the means by which to inflict a positive change in the group's image  █
 █  and standing among all other groups.  The outcome of that discussion      █
 █  called for Anti Derivative and g0d to listen to their members and         █
 █  carefully make judgments on how the group should be run.                  █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Those included in the conference call were myself, Sickle, Gahn,      █
 █  LeoDLioN, tKLP and IceKitten.  We came to a consensus that having two     █
 █  figureheads at the top of a group was senseless and did not represent     █
 █  the best interests of fATE.  We also figured that it would be easy for    █
 █  us to tell Anti Derivative and g0d what we thought, what we wanted        █
 █  changed, and how we thought it should be done, but they weren't           █
 █  responsive to our thoughts at all and did not wish to hear anything       █
 █  about them.                                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █      They accused all of us, especially myself, of conspiring against      █
 █  them to overthrow the heads of fATE.  They couldn't have been more        █
 █  wrong.  Unfortunately, differences between myself and Anti-Derivative     █
 █  and g0d forced me to take permanent leave of fATE.  Several other         █
 █  members left too, including Sickle, IceKitten, Gahn, LeoDLion, and tKLP.  █
 █  LeoDLioN has since returned to fATE to resume his role as an              █
 █  outstanding, fair, moral leader of a group that still lacks the           █
 █  ability to converse with their "true" leaders and resolve real            █
 █  problems.                                                                 █
 █                                                                            █
 █      The reasons I left had nothing to do with being thrown out for        █
 █  "conspiring" and had everything to do with ongoing differences between    █
 █  myself and the two at the top.  Even so, this subject, for me, is the     █
 █  most painful to discuss.  Anti Derivative and g0d gave me my start, from  █
 █  a nobody with a fast connection to the sysadmin of a world class          █
 █  Internet FTP service dedicated to the transfer of fATE-tagged warez.      █
 █                                                                            █
 █      However, the immaturity of Anti Derivative and g0d got to the better  █
 █  of fATE.  Actions speak louder than words, and their actions have caused  █
 █  much trouble for fATE, so much resentment by other groups, and such hate  █
 █  by individuals.                                                           █
 █                                                                            █
 █      In order to write this I asked to be invited into fATE, and g0d was   █
 █  happy to oblige.  When I told them I was writing this, and told them      █
 █  I believed RTS is number two on the scene, I was promptly kicked.  The    █
 █  following is an excerpt from the logs taken that night...                 █
 █                                                                            █

 █  <aNTi-D> good call g0d                                                    █
 █                                                                            █
 █      The dialog speaks for itself.  Having put my personal feelings about  █
 █  Anti Derivative and g0d aside, I believe that their presence in that      █
 █  group and that channel are extremely detrimental to the group.            █
 █                                                                            █
 █      To put it very succinctly, g0d lies, cheats and steals his way to     █
 █  the top.  He puts himself in front of his group.  His agenda is to mow    █
 █  over anything that he believes stands in his way.  He's also threatened   █
 █  my life and he thinks he knows everything about me there is to know. But  █
 █  that's biased.                                                            █
 █                                                                            █
 █      In an unbiased review of g0d, he doesn't think before he acts, which  █
 █  is manifest in his contempt for most members of most other groups.  He    █
 █  has repeatedly insulted the members of Malice.  He considers most groups  █
 █  not worthy of being in the scene.  All that reflects on the group as a    █
 █  whole, not on just g0d himself.                                           █
 █                                                                            █
 █      His "leadership" is even questioned by the very people he is          █
 █  supposedly leading, namely all those that told him that his kicking me    █
 █  was pathetic, and not called for.  Manic even went so far as to say that  █
 █  it was against his better judgment to say anything against g0d.  Does     █
 █  that mean that the members of fATE fear g0d because if they speak up      █
 █  like I did, they will be victims of more of g0d's rash decisions?         █
 █                                                                            █
 █      To give credit where credit is due, g0d is a good courier, when he    █
 █  does it.  He can move warez with the best of them.  His persistence on    █
 █  some issues and work as a leader has taken fATE to new levels.            █
 █  Unfortunately, ultimately those levels attained were forfeited when g0d   █
 █  began acting ruthlessly and selflessly.                                   █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Anti Derivative, the company president, is a little more mellow than  █
 █  g0d.  While g0d jumps to conclusions, AD tends to be more rational, more  █
 █  subdued when making decisions.                                            █
 █                                                                            █
 █      A lot has to be said about Anti Derivative.  He is among the most     █
 █  leet people in the scene.  His drive to make fATE the number one group    █
 █  out there is never ending.                                                █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Anti Derivative doesn't play as much into the picture as g0d does,    █
 █  for I believe that g0d controls fATE through the auspices of AD.  For     █
 █  that reason, I have little to say about aNTi-D, other than the fact       █
 █  that he too has threatened my life, most notably during the night on      █
 █  which the preceding log of #fATE was taken.                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Finally, I urge all members of fATE to question their leadership,     █
 █  the benefits (of which there are few) and its detriments (of which there  █
 █  are slightly more than a few), and decide if you really want this type    █
 █  of leadership.                                                            █
 █                                                                            █
 █      You guys were all good guys (and some ladies).  I am going to be      █
 █  sorry that I'm leaving, but like I said, this is a decision that has      █
 █  to be made.  You will all be missed.                                      █
 █                                                                            █

 █      I may not know too much about fATE, but I know enough to say that     █
 █  Sucre was definitely one of your best members, and I say MEMBER, because  █
 █  before we even look at the wonders he did for you, we must recognize the  █
 █  dedication he feeded you with.  It happens to be that he ran one of the   █
 █  fastest sites for fATE, which should add to your dismay when you look     █
 █  back at what you have done.  I have a hard time believing that the fATE   █
 █  leadership could treat a person dedicated to them for six months like     █
 █  a bag of dirt.  Six months may not be a lot in human years, not even a    █
 █  lot in dog years, but it's a helluva lot of time in scene years (except   █
 █  to those that have been around for 10 years).  I think fATE's behavior    █
 █  (and yes, I say fATE, because I mean fATE as a whole.  If you're in       █
 █  fATE, it means that the leadership represents you, and if you find that   █
 █  that's not the case, you shouldn't be in fATE in the first place) with    █
 █  Sucre during the time in which the above log was taken is sickening and   █
 █  Sucre deserves a definite appology for it.  I will say no more about      █
 █  this, I think that the outcome of not having Sucre on your team, fATE,    █
 █  will show you what you've done.                                           █

 █   While he was in Legacy, he often complained that he did not have enough  █

 █      Hello!  In my last review on couriering groups (RCN, Issue 10,        █
 █  Articles) I rated 5 of the top couriering groups in the scene today.  It  █
 █  seems that several people thought that my opinions were slightly biased   █
 █  and incorrect.  I feel that I did not provide enough infomation for you,  █
 █  the readers, to fully understand my rating system, and what factors       █
 █  contribute to a group's score.  In this article, I will fully explain     █
 █  how I rated groups in the last review, and clarify my opinions made,      █
 █  hopefully so that you can understand my system.  Before I jump to that,   █
 █                                                                            █

 █  I rate couriers based on two factors.  They are as follows:               █
 █                                                                            █
 █      1.  Couriering Ability.  This obviously is based on a group's         █
 █          participation in couriering, and how it organizes itself while    █
 █          spreading.  How it communicates between its Internet division     █
 █          and its Telcom division.                                          █
 █                                                                            █
 █      2.  Scene Awareness.  This is how a group conducts itself when        █
 █          dealing with new members, site inquiries, and over all "Heart"    █
 █          of the group.  This is based on how a group handles visitors to   █
 █          their channel and mailed inquiries.  It also takes into account   █
 █          how a group interfaces with other groups, and the general warez   █
 █          public.                                                           █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Now that you know what a group needs to do to score higher, let's     █
 █  review last week's article.  I have gotten a lot of response from MALiCE  █
 █  members on their rating, so let's begin with them.                        █

 █      MALiCE is probably the leader in the couriering scene today, with     █
 █  some of the fastest Internet and Telcom sites of any group.  They define  █
 █  excellence in couriering wiht skilled traders from around the world.  I   █
 █  have seen several of their distribution boards, and MALiCE pumps them to  █
 █  their limit.                                                              █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Although MALiCE is one of the best couriering teams I have ever       █
 █  seen, and they certainly grabbed a 10 on couriering ability, they just    █
 █  lack talent in other areas, such as relations, group interfacing, etc.    █
 █  My original example of their big-headedness might just be a tad out of    █
 █  date, so I present to you their channel policy.  Only MALiCE members are  █
 █  allowed in the channel, no publicity for this group at all.  This is by   █
 █  far MALiCE's biggest fault.  They do all recruiting by word-of-mouth,     █
 █  which is not too bad, but not too good practice for a long lasting        █
 █  courier group.  This is why my rating of MALiCE was so low last week.     █
 █  I hate those two criteria which each hold 50% of a group's overall        █
 █  rating, so with a 10 in couriering ability and a mere 4 in scene          █
 █  awareness, it averaged out to a 7.                                        █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I have the utmost respect for MALiCE and their accomplishments.       █
 █  They rank right up there with RiSC, but they need definite work in other  █
 █  areas.                                                                    █

 █      The second group, and last in this article, will be RTS.  A few       █
 █  people asked me why I rated RTS so high, beating MALiCE and tying with    █
 █  RiSC.  My rating for RTS is almost a reversal of that of MALiCE.  RTS     █
 █  has had a great year so far, with their couriers and net sites, but they  █
 █  lack the power they had before with strong sites, and superb couriers.    █
 █  Don't get me wrong, their couriers are great, I just don't see the        █
 █  determination of the old RTS, so I rated RTS a 9 in couriering ability.   █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Although RTS is lacking support for their couriers, every day I see   █
 █  RTS traders busting their asses with "relations" work.  What I mean by    █
 █  "relations" is that they have every trader armed with apps and taggers    █
 █  in their XDCC list, going around in group channels and various offer      █
 █  channels offering RTS apps and searching for talent.  I see RTS           █
 █  interfacing with several groups and always getting their name out.  RTS   █
 █  is a fine role model for scene awareness, I could only wish that other    █
 █  groups had so much spirit and enthusiasm as RTS.  This is why I put them  █
 █  so high on my scale, a 9 for couriering ability and a solid 10 for scene  █
 █  awareness.  RTS just needs to keep up the good work and get solid         █
 █  couriering out there.                                                     █
 █                                                                            █
 █      These two groups were the only two that were questioned, so I will    █
 █  let all of you figure out the rest for yourselves.  By the way, if you    █
 █  have any questions or comments regarding my reviews, mail RCN at their    █
 █  anon address and they will promptly forward the mail to me.  I will try   █

 █                                                                            █
 █      First of all, I should point out that I have nothing against the net  █
 █  as we know it, I never have and I never will, but when I see some little  █
 █  net freak that spends his whole life on the net trying to tell people     █
 █  that Park Central is unfair, it only makes me wonder, where does this     █
 █  guy get off?                                                              █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I have nothing against people having opinions, but if you are going   █
 █  to have an opinion on something, you should at least be informed in some  █
 █  fashion of what you are criticizing.  In this case, Razor's "Internet     █
 █  Coordinator" was bashing PC because of our unfairness towards Razor on    █
 █  races.  This "unfairness" is obviously a complete lie, and I will try     █
 █  to explain some of the reasons for this.                                  █
 █                                                                            █
 █  1.) In the last few races Razor was smoked on, they complained of having  █
 █      their transfers aborted on PC.  There is only one person that could   █
 █      do that, and that's PC's local sysop, Silver V, which I should        █
 █      mention has never been involved in group politics, and never will.    █
 █      He runs this system as a hobby, and spends a lot of money every       █
 █      month to keep this board going.  The last thing he wants is the       █
 █      heartache of dealing with crybaby groups like Razor.  For the         █
 █      record, the most recent race on Zone Raiders which Razor lost on.     █
 █      Razor was quick to jump to the conclusion that someone was "creating  █
 █      line noise" on their lines and aborting their transfers.  Silver V    █
 █      wasn't even home all day until late that night.  I could probably     █
 █      find close to 10 alibis who were with him at a local bar.  So there   █
 █      goes that sorry... sorry Razor.                                       █
 █                                                                            █
 █  2.) The new Razor has been using bullshit propaganda like this for        █
 █      months in an attempt to gain people's sympathy for their pathetic     █
 █      performance on races against the late TDU-JAM! and Hybrid on the      █
 █      major boards.  It seems that their strategy is a run-down the boards  █
 █      that they are losing so miserably on, and to rag on the groups that   █
 █      they are losing to.                                                   █
 █                                                                            █
 █  3.) DruidKin who is so carefree in bashing PC, a board he does not even   █
 █      have an account on, and probably doesn't even have an account on ANY  █
 █      major boards.  I don't recall this guy from any groups in the past.   █
 █      I would like to know since when is he an expert on the scene.  It     █
 █      seems to me that he is just another clueless newbie who has been      █
 █      transformed into a slave for Razor's cause.                           █
 █                                                                            █
 █     Obviously you can see that there is a great deal of credibility        █
 █  lacking from Razor's claims against Park Central.  I personally don't     █
 █  appreciate being criticized by this clueless schmuck Druidkin who hasn't  █
 █  been in the real scene as we know it.  If somebody has something to say,  █
 █  they better the hell have some substantiated proof about what they are    █
 █  talking about.  Again I must note that not a single one of these          █
 █  "mysterious logoffs" that Razor is whining about has EVER been proven     █
 █  and it was stay that way because the truth is that none of that shit has  █
 █  EVER happened on Park Central for the years we have been up.  These       █
 █  accusations are merely part of an intricate web of lies that Razor is     █
 █  weaving in order to brainwash all the net-lamers that they appeal so      █
 █  much to, since they can't seem to get anyone in the REAL scene to         █
 █  partake in their pathetic cause.                                          █
 █                                                                            █

 █  I personally have nothing against iNQ.  The e-mag seems to put out a      █
 █  nice version usually.  One of the prolbems though that I found was in
 █  their last issue.  They seemed to have returned after a two week
 █  vacation.  I think those two weeks were actually to let their egos grow   █
 █  a little bit more.  A comment that struck me as funny was "So RCN can     █
 █  step aside and all you other lame e-mags too.  None of you compare to     █
 █  INQ." - CyberPhreak.  What's going on here?  In looking at their editor   █
 █  list I finally figured out what the problem was.  They have formed a      █
 █  magazine of some of the most egoistical people in the scene today.  Even  █
 █  Lester seems to have gotten into things with his definition of RCN that   █
 █  I'm sure took him no longer than 3 hours to think up.                     █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Malice, DOD, RTS...  All groups that seem to be associated with iNQ.  █
 █  I have nothing against any of the members within these groups.  In fact,  █
 █  I have known some of them to be very friendly.  When I talked to the      █
 █  President of Malice I was greeted by Operator with a "Fuck you;  Why are  █
 █  you bothering him?"  Hey, what more could I ask for?  The structure       █
 █  today of the scene seems to be one oof very egoistical people who seem    █
 █  to think that they are the best and that nobody can join their little     █
 █  "Elite" world.  If you ask me, all of these people must be neo-nazis of   █
 █  the IRC world.                                                            █
 █                                                                            █
 █      When we find a new group trying to make it, instead of showing        █
 █  support and maybe a friendly comment, we seem to be pulling them into an  █
 █  ongoing war.  Why?  Is this the 1996 ego clash?  Are we all really        █
 █  better than those "Other lamers" trying to make it in this community?     █
 █  "If you frequent any decent channels on IRC and actually talk with the    █
 █  people that are sometimes written about and/or mentioned in RCN, you      █
 █  will quickly wade through the line of shit that is written in this mag    █
 █  and notice that what the authors are writing about is just simply for     █
 █  the masses." - GoreFest.  Boy am I glad you wrote this, Gore.  Simply     █
 █  for the masses?  I didn't know that only the people that iNQ deems        █
 █  "cool" are those that WE as in RCN should be writing for!  GoreFest       █
 █  started as a nobody, as we all did.  Who knows how brown his nose got     █
 █  before he rose to who he is today.  In fact, who really cares?  We are    █
 █  all the masses.  No one person is better than another one.  Just because  █
 █  maybe you can get invited into RiSC or maybe MALiCE's channel and talk    █
 █  to a senior.  Maybe you are even a senior in one of these groups.  What   █
 █  makes you better than Jim Smith on #Warez5?  He probably spends most of   █
 █  his time on IRC offering files to people who want them, giving more to    █
 █  the scene than the ego that the people of iNQ seem to cherish so much.    █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Oh, a note to iNQ, I really did expect to see much content in iNQ     █
 █  issue 11 being that you had so long to work on it.  I was utterly         █
 █  dismayed when I found that nearly 50% of your mag spoke about RCN :-(.    █

 █      Computer technology is changing faster and faster by the day.  It is  █
 █  said that every six months, something new has become outdated.  Here,     █
 █  we'll look at the future of modems.  The life of modems has changed       █
 █  dramatically over the past few months.  The best modems out in 1994 were  █
 █  14.4's.  Around August, the 28.8 modem came out and sold for around       █
 █  $300.  In today's world, those 28.8 modems have become standard and some  █
 █  warez boards even require that you have one to transfer files.  More      █
 █  and more boards are making the switch to ISDN, some for telnet, some      █
 █  just for direct connections.  ISDN isn't cheap, though, so even the       █
 █  biggest boards are still holding back before they jump on this new        █
 █  technology.                                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █      This past month, I have seen at least ten new BBSs that have moved    █
 █  to ISDN.  Splatter King, a Swedish board, has setup an ISDN line          █
 █  dedicated solely to uploading warez.  It's a regular node, only           █
 █  accepting one caller at a time, meant for uploads at 128k speeds.  Zero   █
 █  hour warez are no longer a thing of the Internet alone, they are common   █
 █  on this board.  Before the top boards move to ISDN for Internet access-   █
 █  ability, they will probably move to direct nodes so couriers can have     █
 █  greater uploads in shorter time periods.                                  █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Many boards are moving to ISDN for Internet accessability so that     █
 █  they may attract callers from around the world without a long distance    █
 █  charge.  Not only that, the Internet also allows an unlimited number of   █
 █  nodes via Telnet.  I don't suggest that you go above 4 nodes on a single  █
 █  128k connect, though, as speed will be severely decreased.  The other     █
 █  advantage to using ISDN is that the system operator of a given telnet     █
 █  BBS may change the "number" (IP address) of his server at will.  This is  █
 █  a great security precaution.  One board that is about to try this is      █
 █  the Tower of Sourcery.  It is installing a 128k terminal dedicated to     █
 █  Telnet capabilities, hoping to expand its user base and courier base      █
 █  making it an even more popular board, and opening its doors to a wealth   █
 █  of new users.                                                             █
 █                                                                            █
 █      However, all this speed is not so cheap.  The new digital ISDN        █
 █  terminals (not modems, because on a digital line, there is no need for    █
 █  modulation) can run around $400, not to mention line setups.  Your phone  █
 █  company will charge approximately $50 setup for the line, plus $20/month  █
 █  for the monthly cost.  Be aware, though, that a digital line actually     █
 █  offers TWO lines in one, so you can get yourself a SECOND ISDN terminal   █
 █  (yes, that'll be another $800!) and run it on the same "one" line that    █
 █  you purchased from your phone company!  Once you have your terminal       █
 █  completely setup, you'll probably feel very proud, but don't forget       █
 █  about Internet charges!  Your provider will charge you much more for      █
 █  internet access through ISDN.  After all, you're using up a greater       █
 █  amount of their resources.  Once you do have everything setup, though,    █
 █  you'll be cruising at a sweet 12.8 kilobytes/second.                      █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Alright, so you're not quite ready for ISDN yet?  Don't feel bad,     █
 █  neither am I.  Your 28.8 will still do just fine for the time being,      █
 █  don't be surprised if in another few months, you'll be at the store       █
 █  searching for prices on a new ISDN terminal.                              █

 █      Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, at one time or another,      █
 █  each and every one of us was a newbie to the scene, or as the 3133+       █
 █  dudes called us, lamers.  Some of us couldn't get into any groups, so we  █
 █  decided to start our own, at least that way we would have an affiliation  █
 █  to list on future apps, and hopefully better our chances of getting in a  █
 █  group.  I myself have run two groups of my own, one releasing, and one    █
 █  couriering.  The releasing group did fair, and managed to release the     █
 █  first working I-phone crack.  The couriering group, however, didn't do    █
 █  so well, and wound up dying two weeks after it was formed.                █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Many of the newbies to the scene go through this because most of      █
 █  them can't find someone who is willing to give them a chance, but if      █
 █  nobody ever gives them a chance, then nobody knows what they might be     █
 █  able to do.  Who knows, the next great courier or supplier might be       █
 █  calling some little one node bbs right now, filling out that new user     █
 █  application, and hoping to get on.  When I read the article Hitex wrote   █
 █  (RCN, Issue 10, Articles) I saw myself.  I remember when I used to try    █
 █  getting on k-rad warez boards, only to find out I wasn't cool enough.  I  █
 █  remember when I first got on a good warez board, because a guy who ran a  █
 █  local BBS decided it wouldn't hurt anything for me to leech a few games   █
 █  for his board.  That guy later introduced me to the net, and taught me    █
 █  about IRC.  Prozac, I'd just like to say thanks.                          █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I quickly became addicted, and started leeching like a mad man.       █
 █  Once I learned about all these groups, who I thought were so great for    █
 █  getting us this software for free, I decided that I wanted to be a part   █
 █  of one.  Unfortunately, because I was a 'lamer' nobody would take me.     █
 █  Then one day, about 8-9 months ago, about the same time as Hitex really   █
 █  got started, I noticed this new group called Vendetta, so I thought hey,  █
 █  there's one I haven't applied to yet.  I tried getting an app, but they   █
 █  didn't have one.  I thought oh well, another one down.  About that time,  █
 █  the vice prez, Hitex (Krypton at the time) told me he would talk to me    █
 █  about applying later, after he got his channel back.  I thought, hey,     █
 █  what a way to earn some suck-up points, I'll convince these guys that I   █
 █  want to help them keep the channel, and give it back to Hitex.  Well,     █
 █  needless to say, they were too smart for me, but maybe my intentions      █
 █  worked out, because he decided to give another lamer, that nobody had     █
 █  heard of, a chance.  it it hadn't been for Hitex allowing me into VND, I  █
 █  honestly don't think I would be where I am today.  That helped me get     █
 █  into HWC because I could get them VND releases, then HWC merged with      █
 █  fATE, and then, finally my dream came true, I was in one of the BIG       █
 █  groups, and I even got to be a senior in fATE's releasing section, which  █
 █  soon split off to form RoR.                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Who knows, without Hitex, if I would have ever been in HWC.  If not,  █
 █  I would have never been in fATE, or RoR.  Hitex and Rebel Chicken really  █
 █  are some of the elites of the scene today.  Many don't like them,         █
 █  probably because he gave too many people like me a chance, but I'd like   █
 █  to think that he made the right decision.                                 █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I don't know if anyone understands what I am saying or not, but       █
 █  hopefully if you are a senior of some group, next time you get an app     █
 █  from someone who has no affils, or experience in the scene, you will      █
 █  think that hey, maybe this guy could turn out to be a good member.  If    █
 █  there was nobody to give the newbies a chance there would eventually be   █
 █  nobody in the scene.  Sure, the newbies are annoying, constantly bugging  █
 █  you to be in the group, but they will overcome their excitement soon      █
 █  after they get their first 0 hour ware.  They will begin to understand    █
 █  the scene a little better.  If this article just changes one person's     █
 █  opinion of the little affil-less newbies, then my story was worth it.     █
 █                                                                            █

 █      Being a BBS SysOp used to be something to envy.  Not everyone could   █
 █  afford to have a BBS, the costs were very high.  More recently, BBSs      █
 █  have become virtually commonplace.  The BBS scene has flourished,         █
 █  competition has been on the rise, and boards have gone up in quality.     █
 █  The top boards now consist of 15+ nodes, all pushing at 28.8 kbps or      █
 █  even 33.6 kbps for the lucky ones.  With the advent of the Internet,      █
 █  though, we have been presented with a new form of data transfer, FTP      █
 █  sites.  FTP sites now run on super fast internet connections capable of   █
 █  over 100k/s, assuming perfect efficiency.  For a scene that relies        █
 █  purely on speed, these new holding grounds are obviously the ideal        █
 █  choice.  There are, however, several issues that need to be tackled       █
 █  before we can assume that the warez scene should move to sites.           █
 █                                                                            █
 █      A fast BBS used to be the main form of "declaring a release."  If a   █
 █  group released a program and another group released it 30 minutes later,  █
 █  the seniors could tell which group got to it first by seeing when the     █
 █  release started to get on boards, or, more appropriately, when it got on  █
 █  the competition's World Headquarter.  I, personally, would refine that    █
 █  to say that a release has been declared as soon as it has gotten on a     █
 █  headquarter of a major couriering group, since it is the couriers that    █
 █  are responsible for pushing the warez.  The dilemna arrives when a        █
 █  group tries to claim a release that they put only on FTP sites and on     █
 █  IRC.  If the group's couriers aren't fast enough, or if the release was   █
 █  lost by only a few minutes, it may not have gotten on any BBSs yet.  Is   █
 █  an FTP site a proper "declaration" site?  Some would argue.  I,           █
 █  personally, think that if the site is an official headquarter site of at  █
 █  least one major group, it should be.  FTP sites are very handy for        █
 █  keeping track of things.  They keep track of everything!  Not only do     █
 █  they tell you what date the release was uploaded on, but the time too,    █
 █  down to the nearest second!                                               █
 █                                                                            █
 █      I think that it is evident that FTP sites are a valid form of         █
 █  stating a release, as long as they are big enough, which is the same      █
 █  requirement we would put on a board.  It is not enough to upload a        █
 █  release to a single-node board in Afghanastan and say that you have       █
 █  released it, nor is it enough to upload the release to a 3k/s anonymous   █
 █  FTP site.                                                                 █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Another argument that people often make about the Internet as a       █
 █  releasing grounds is that IRC is a perfectly good place to declare a      █
 █  release.  This, I would have to disprove of.  To my knowledge, IRC does   █
 █  not keep a log of any times that anything was offered on or anything to   █
 █  that degree.  Moreover, IRC involves pure word of mouth, never anything   █
 █  definite, so if DOD tries to release Nashville and PWA tries to do the    █
 █  same on the same day, nearly at the same time, and the groups are too     █
 █  dumb (note, this would NEVER happen with such experienced groups, these   █
 █  guys know what to do if they have such a sweet release!) to upload the    █
 █  release to any sites or to any boards, nobody will ever know who really   █
 █  released it first.                                                        █
 █                                                                            █
 █      Ultimately, we wouldn't take the word of a small BBS to tell us when  █
 █  a release was done, nor would we take the word of a small FTP site.  We   █
 █  will not take the word of IRC to tell us when a release was done, as we   █
 █  are all a bunch of lying schmucks and would never get anywhere doing      █
 █  that :-).  Those are my two cents, if you have any comments or            █
 █  suggestions, please write in!                                             █

 █   see people that rule (No 0's please) is from their attitude toward       █
 █   other users on IRC and on BBSes in general.  I can say without a doubt   █
 █   that you have a lame ass, I am god attitude, I run a 0-day BBS and now   █
 █   you can suck my dic???  HAHAAAAAAHHHHAAAA I also run a a BBS that gets   █
 █   the files as soon as I snag them from the sites, usually within the a    █
 █   few hours of release AND I don't even have a stuck up attitude.  I       █
 █   still belive in treating other users like people and that we are not     █
 █   better or worse than them.  If a lamer wants access, I don't say shit    █

 █  Most people who use AOL are the people that are scared to venture into    █

 █  to see a Unix Prompt.  People do go by what others say.  Gettin people    █
 █  to think for themselves is something that is going to take a long time.   █
 █  For the past 200 years we as a civilization have come less then half way  █
 █  in thinking for ourselfes.  We all seem to take a "kin" to somebody who   █
 █  in our minds looks like a cool person, someobody who maybe leads MaLiCE   █
 █  or RTS.  When somebody screams "Aol!" we all seem to head for our ban     █
 █  command and hide behind the ego that somebody is trying cover us with.    █
 █  The problem with thinking for ourselves is that if we do not conform to   █
 █  the accepted mold, rumors start flying around that we are "Lame" or not   █

 █      I wanted to make a statement about AOL piraters.  Most IRCers think   █
 █  that AOL is full of lamers that courier 2-3 year old releases.  They      █
 █  also believe that all of AOL is full of mindless 13 year olds begging     █
 █  for games.  They are MOSTLY right, but there is a section of AOL which    █
 █  have a few elites.  They are not really elite like IRC elite but they     █
 █  are more elite than the avergae #Warez5 IRCer.  IRCers don't see much of  █
 █  AOL's warez because it is hidden well.  These people have their own       █
 █  private rooms and never go to  the warez rooms, which makes #Warez look   █
 █  like heaven.  A group called ALLiED is a group full of 0 day uploaders    █
 █  and are all old and respected warez people.  ALLiED members get 0 day in  █
 █  their mailbox every day, yes, I said 0 day.  Believe it or not, AOL does  █
 █  get 0 day and are sometimes faster than most boards.  I get 0 day in my   █
 █  mail box from four great AOL groups named UPS, Mystic, SPIN, and SNT.     █
 █  I often get releases a few hours after they were released on the NET.     █
 █  AOL is actually faster than many IRC channels.  AOL is not as lame as     █
 █  people think.  There is more to the AOL piracy scene than the lame        █
 █  warez rooms.                                                              █

 █      I happen to agree with you on many points.  I have seen AOL groups    █
 █  move warez faster than Net Couriers.  It is amazing, we have so much to   █
 █  work with in the area of speed and how easy it is to get a fast site.     █
 █  People on AOL have to work a lot harder than we do.  Getting people to    █
 █  accept them is a huge problem.  AOL is an extension of IRC, one that      █
 █  is there whether or not we choose to admit it's existence.  The days of   █
 █  text based environments are leaving faster than we care to admit.  They   █
 █  are behing replaced by the great GUI interface that is taken over the     █
 █  majority of households.  Accepting AOL'ers into the internet is a way to  █
