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 discontinued, 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.

 ║      I am writing this to say a few words about RCN and how people treat   ║
 ║  us.  First of all, when you see an article that rips on someone or a      ║
 ║  group, and you don't like it.  Take it up with the author!!!  If it       ║
 ║  isn't written by Rebel Chicken, Hitex or I then don't nag us about it!    ║
 ║  Also, if you have a problem with something written about you or a group,  ║
 ║  WRITE A REBUTTLE!  Don't sit there and bitch at us in the channel, it     ║
 ║  doesn't do shit.  I came to #RCN today, and all I heard was bitching      ║
 ║  because someone said something mean about a group.  WELL, if you are a    ║
 ║  group member and your group gets made fun of, take it on the chin, be a   ║
 ║  man.  We have and will make fun of A LOT of people, most of it is just    ║
 ║  FUN and in MAD RCN, and people realize this and get over it.  If you      ║
 ║  come in and bitch at us, it makes us want to rip you some more.  Ok       ║
 ║  enough of this.                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now, this is for the people that come in and say "SEND ME THE NEWEST  ║
 ║  RCN!"  You don't have to beg!!!!  Before you nag people for it try this.  ║
 ║  Look in the channel for someone named *dcc (anythingdcc).  If they exist  ║
 ║  type this : "/MSG <nick> xdcc list"  If they list that they have it type  ║
 ║  this : "/MSG <nick> xdcc send #<[email protected]>"                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      OK!!  NOW, if there isn't a DCC in the channel look at the topic.     ║
 ║  It will usually have an FTP or Web page adrress!  If they aren't there,   ║
 ║  then ask.  Please don't just come in and BEG. It is very unbecoming.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Also, for people that want to write for RCN, you don't have to ask    ║
 ║  for an RCN app.  Just write something and send it to me.  If it is good   ║
 ║  we use it, if not, well.. we don't.  However, our editors are very        ║
 ║  patient and they will try to unscramble any submission, regardless of     ║
 ║  your English skills.  Also, we readily accept submissions written in      ║
 ║  French, Hebrew, Spanish, or Swedish.  Don't worry, we'll get it           ║
 ║  translated!  (Of course, we still prefer English!)  If you can keep       ║
 ║  submitting to RCN you will become a member.  But don't ask what the       ║
 ║  topic should be, if we had all the topics we could write the whole        ║
 ║  magazine, the topics are the hard part!                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      I've been around for nearly three years now.  No, I have never been   ║
 ║  "elite k-rad kick-ass d00d," but I did run a small warez board for        ║
 ║  around 2 years.  I recently closed it so I could play games (har har      ║
 ║  har).  The only good games I've played recently are of course, games      ║
 ║  like Duke3D, Quake, etc.  But my best memories are with those games from  ║
 ║  '93 and such.                                                             ║

 ║      What is it with game programmers, these days?  They seem to enjoy     ║
 ║  taking a camera, walking down the block, burning the film on a CD,        ║
 ║  adding a keyboard handler, package.  Oh sure, I would probably do the     ║
 ║  same thing if I wanted to make money.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      And that's what you get: 50, 60 even over 70 disks.  Most of the      ║
 ║  time, and I'm sure a lot of you will agree on this, there's no more than  ║
 ║  2 disks of actual programming/playable shit.                              ║

 ║      Really, the size is relevant of only one factor.  How good is the     ║
 ║  intro?  How many times did you start a game, look at the intro for about  ║
 ║  5 minutes while drooling all over your crotch to find out the game is a   ║
 ║  VGA, 16 color piece of junk?                                              ║

 ║      Well, Xenon!  How are you?  I've been trying to reach you, but it     ║
 ║  seems you are quite a busy dude.  So, I took the liberty to write in RCN  ║
 ║  so that everyone may share the common good of knowledge.  As people may   ║
 ║  well know, I am a currently a writer for RCN.  However, I am also a       ║
 ║  coder.  It has taken me quite some time (about 1 and a half years) to     ║
 ║  perfect some coding that is similar to Xenon's code.  I do not steal      ║
 ║  your code, (how would I?) but I have created my own.  Anyways, I have a   ║
 ║  smooth scroller just like yours, etc.  Basically, I can dish out          ║
 ║  whatever you can except you do this RCN stuff in C++/ASM/Pascal and I     ║
 ║  only code in pascal/ASM so far yet.                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I am not writing this to brag.  I am writing this to find out how on  ║
 ║  Earth do you keep your code clean, organized and functioning???  I        ║
 ║  imagine with all these menus, text files, it is a bitch.  I know how to   ║
 ║  make menus and scroll text files, and to tell you the truth, lightbar     ║
 ║  menus (the ones you have) take me quite some time to make and the text    ║
 ║  files take time to organize and to display in $b800.  After all, my code  ║
 ║  isn't optimized, but it takes me a while to make and it is fairly a good  ║
 ║  size.  I am confused.  Please share how you keep all this organized.      ║
 ║  And one more thing, please, tell me how to display a VGA screen (a        ║
 ║  picture like the one ending RCN) AND keeping the picture data inside the  ║
 ║  code.  No, I do NOT want to attach the picture data to the end of the     ║
 ║  exe but if that is the only way, tell me.  Again, thanks for the help     ║
 ║  and thanks for inspiring me to become a coder.                            ║

 ║  Dear RCN,                                                                 ║

 ║      Just thought I'd write you guys to express a few of my opinions.      ║
 ║  First, your mag rocks!  The music, code, the interface, they're the       ║
 ║  best, but over the last few issues, RCN seems to be taking me longer,     ║
 ║  and longer to read.  I found myself unzipping the file at 10:30 PM        ║
 ║  tonight, and when I finihed reading the mag, it was 11:41 PM.  What I'm   ║
 ║  trying to say is maybe you should go more for quality rather than         ║
 ║  quantity.  I find a lot of your group interviews are more or less the     ║
 ║  same in content, and I'll probably be skipping most of them in the        ║
 ║  future.                                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Next, that fucking space invaders game.  I spent 10 minutes playing   ║
 ║  it, and got 3000 points and I said screw this.  You really want me to     ║
 ║  play for half an hour to get to 10000 points!?  Hehe, I guess I'll just   ║
 ║  have to try and live without knowing what's in those secret articles, or  ║
 ║  maybe someone will release another space invaders crack :-).              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Last, what ever happened to Defacto?  It seems they couldn't handle   ║
 ║  the pressure, or are they STILL waiting on this miracle interface?  I'd   ║
 ║  say it's probably the first option!                                       ║

 ║      Hi, my name is Eraser.  Most of you people don't know me, probably    ║
 ║  because I changed my nick and I am not in any groups anymore.  I am       ║
 ║  writing an article about what odogg^2 wrote about.  IRC ops and their     ║
 ║  power.  Personally, I have talked to a couple IRC ops that were kewl,     ║
 ║  but some are just assholes, because they can play god on IRC.  Prae,      ║
 ║  kern.com's owner has been an IRC op for 15 years.  Don't ya think he      ║
 ║  should find something else to do besides playing on IRC for 15 years?     ║
 ║  Anyways, the other day I loaded LL (link looker), which is the best tool  ║
 ║  you can get publicly, and it's the best tool to get unless you're an IRC  ║
 ║  op.  I had it loaded on kern.com, then it quit and I got klined.          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      5 minutes later, I was not klined anymore for some reason so I asked  ║
 ║  Prae.  His response? "Link lookers are lame."  Well, I dont give a fuck   ║
 ║  if they're lame!  It's all I got, you stupid faggot.  I don't invest my   ║
 ║  life savings into fucking kern.com so I can play IRC ops with the other   ║
 ║  big boys.  Like odogg^2 wrote, an IRC op has use for /kill, and he has    ║
 ║  use for his 9 clones.  I have use for my clones and LL.  To this day,     ║
 ║  Prae is still being a prick.  15 years of o-lines makes you a dipshit.    ║
 ║  Too bad.                                                                  ║

 ║      Waynekerr, I thought your info in RCN #19 on FTPing was VERY          ║
 ║  interesting and helpful.  With the CHMOD 777 command it turns everything  ║
 ║  on (writeable, readable, etc).  Is there a way to turn just each one on?  ║
 ║  Also, is there a way to turn them off (writeable in particular)??  These  ║
 ║  commands will be VERY helpful in my maintaining an ftp site (a            ║
 ║  'borrowed' one, if you will).  Also, these commands will keep lamers      ║
 ║  from deleting filez :). Thanks a BUNCH for any help, and be sure to       ║

 ║  to upload 300 megs a week long distance but 50 megs or more would be      ║
 ║  nice, just to show you care.  Releasing groups should just make it a      ║

 ║  should be maintained by groups so even though more people will be upset   ║
 ║  that they can't get in that is just to bad.  Because a group can have     ║

 ║      It has been called to my attention, that the local boards that I      ║
 ║  used to call were going under.  I know most of this it true due to the    ║
 ║  fact that we now have 3 Internet service providers in our area local to   ║
 ║  everyone.  I was told that before the Internet came around there were 30  ║
 ║  boards local where I live.  Now there are 5.                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      All the boards died within one year of when the Internet came to my   ║
 ║  town.  Now, I know for some people that they used to like calling local   ║
 ║  boards and playing Legend of the Red Dragon and other games like that     ║
 ║  but now it's to the point it you want to have a decent board you need to  ║
 ║  run it on the Internet to get calls.                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I predict by the year 2000 the way it is going now there will be      ║
 ║  very FEW local boards in your area, like I know mine.  I used to run      ║
 ║  one.  I took it down and now am setup for the Internet I just need my     ║
 ║  static IP connection.  And I am off on my journey to the great beyond of  ║
 ║  the Internet.  And what do most people want when they telnet to a board?  ║
 ║  Warez mostly.  I don't know too many people who don't run a board and     ║
 ║  don't have them.  It's just an everyday occurrence now.                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      With the major groups like DOD (Drink or Die) and PWA (Pirates with   ║
 ║  Attitudes) releasing the AWSOME software they get, it's just too big.     ║
 ║  But if you want to run a thriving board, you need a few things.           ║
 ║  Internet, Warez, people who call, and cool ansi's from ACiD (Ansi         ║
 ║  Creators in Demand) or another group like that.                           ║

 ║      Just thought I'd write you guys to express a few of my opinions.      ║
 ║  First, your mag rocks!  The music, code, the interface, they're the       ║
 ║  best, but over the last few issues, RCN seems to be taking me longer,     ║
 ║  and longer to read.  I found myself unzipping the file at 10:30 PM        ║
 ║  tonight, and when I finihed reading the mag, it was 11:41 PM.  What I'm   ║
 ║  trying to say is maybe you should go more for quality rather than         ║
 ║  quantity.  I find a lot of your group interviews are more or less the     ║
 ║  same in content, and I'll probably be skipping most of them in the        ║
 ║  future.                                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Next, that fucking space invaders game.  I spent 10 minutes playing   ║
 ║  it, and got 3000 points and I said screw this.  You really want me to     ║
 ║  play for half an hour to get to 10000 points!?  Hehe, I guess I'll just   ║
 ║  have to try and live without knowing what's in those secret articles, or  ║
 ║  maybe someone will release another space invaders crack :-).              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Last, what ever happened to Defacto?  It seems they couldn't handle   ║
 ║  the pressure, or are they STILL waiting on this miracle interface?  I'd   ║
 ║  say it's probably the first option!                                       ║

 ║  but they shouldn't come whining in the channel when they can't get        ║
 ║  10,000 points.  It's not THAT hard, just try it for at least 5 minutes    ║

 ║      I was reading Issue #20 about getting sodas from Coke machines for    ║
 ║  free.  One of them said to get a train schedule and put those nickles     ║
 ║  down on the tracks so they get smashed and turn into quarters.  Just a    ║
 ║  few years back I did something similar, but this didn't require a train   ║
 ║  <grin>.  Just get a heavy hammer and take a handfull of nickles out to a  ║
 ║  hard flat surface (like a sidewalk).  Just hammer them away!  It might    ║
 ║  take you a while at first but once you get the hang of it it gets real    ║
 ║  easy.  You might want a real quarter handy, though.  They also work at    ║
 ║  the arcades.  Well there's my smashed up 5 cents!                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      There is something new I noticed Napalm do.  They release the game,   ║
 ║  and with it all kinds of addons.  Cinema addons, speech addons, and so    ║
 ║  on.  I think this is a great idea, and I hope to see all groups start     ║
 ║  doing this.  This lets me check the game first, and if I really like it,  ║
 ║  I take all the addons and  burn them on a CD.  Then, I almost have the    ║
 ║  original CD! For example, why couldn't RazorCD release their new          ║
 ║  Baseball game in 2 parts?  One for the game itself and one for the        ║
 ║  cinema addon.  That way they wouldn't have passed the 40 disk limit, and  ║
 ║  you wouldn't have to download a 58 disk release just to find out the      ║
 ║  game doesn't work.  By the way, GREAT MAGAZINE!  Keep it up.              ║

 ║ █RCN█: Razor 1911 has been one of the top groups in the scene for many     ║
 ║        years now, and many would consider it the best group of all time,   ║
 ║        however, there are some that would say that Razor 1911 is a dying   ║
 ║        group, and that Prestige is the new king of the hill, do you        ║
 ║        believe that is true?                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: I would not say that Razor 1911 is dying, perhaps we are not in     ║
 ║        our prime. But, we are certainly still alive.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Do you believe that Prestige has taken Razor 1911's place in the    ║
 ║        games scene as the #1 group?  Razor 1911 has definitely not         ║
 ║        released as MANY games as Prestige, but the games that Razor 1911   ║
 ║        has released, such as WarCraft 2 (14 Disks with the Expansion       ║
 ║        Set), are usually better cracked and have a high chance of          ║
 ║        working.  Do you believe that Prestige releases also have a high    ║
 ║        rate of working?                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: Razor 1911 has been known for many years to release quality         ║
 ║        working titles.  Now, all groups come and go, but Razor 1911 will   ║
 ║        always be around.  Prestige does not have the same long term        ║
 ║        reputation as Razor 1911 does.  I cannot say how long Prestige      ║
 ║        will be able to continue with their high volume of releases, in     ║
 ║        most cases equal to Razor 1911 standards.  Then again, Prestige     ║
 ║        has messed up a few recently, but that is expected from a new       ║
 ║        group.                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What are these mess ups by Prestige that could have come about      ║
 ║        because of their young age?                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: For example, Prestige's release of Frank Thomas Baseball did not    ║
 ║        allow pitching.  Miscellaneous bugs as such in their releases,      ║
 ║        which can really happen to anyone, unless you have the              ║
 ║        organization and experience to have things tested properly, are     ║
 ║        not necessarily due to their young age.  But because of their       ║
 ║        young age, they most likely haven't had the time to setup a         ║
 ║        clockwork-like system of getting their releases out smoothly.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What is this clockwork-like system that you are describing? And     ║
 ║        how can other games groups learn from Razor 1911's experience?      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: Well for example, Razor 1911 has a good reputation for releases     ║
 ║        working properly that are properly cracked.  However certain        ║
 ║        groups (in some cases based out of 718), do not have such a good    ║
 ║        reputation for things working properly, I am sure if the group in   ║
 ║        question (I would rather not mention any names at this point),      ║
 ║        would schedule in the time to test a release to make sure that the  ║
 ║        crack is fully working, a lot of problems could have been avoided.  ║
 ║        There is really nothing to be learned from Razor 1911's             ║
 ║        experience.  Experience itself is the key.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: A good release is guaranteed to be spread to many people, but even  ║
 ║        Razor 1911 has to release some games here and there that are just   ║
 ║        not fun.  It's not Razor 1911's fault, it's just that some          ║
 ║        companies can't program fun games.  And when that happens, how      ║
 ║        does the courier section of Razor 1911 help spread its releases to  ║
 ║        the masses even when the game just does not want to spread?         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: Obviously in a games group situation, priority goes to the boards.  ║
 ║        Once a release has been put on our HQ boards, we then take it over  ║
 ║        to the Internet by procedure.  Once a release is on all of the      ║
 ║        main distribution points, there is really nothing we can do to      ║
 ║        force the end user to download it.  It is not our responsibility    ║
 ║        to market it.                                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How do you take it over to the Internet by procedure?  What do you  ║
 ║        mean by "procedure?"  Also, what are the requirements for a board   ║
 ║        that wants to become affiliated with Razor 1911.  And when a board  ║
 ║        does become affiliated, how does one become more than a member      ║
 ║        board to become a HQ board?                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: By procedure, I mean it is how things are normally done, sort of    ║
 ║        "by the book."  The requirements of a board that would like to      ║
 ║        become a part of Razor 1911 are normally evaluated on an            ║
 ║        individual basis.  We look for boards in which the sysop is able    ║
 ║        to actively contribute to the group.  Generally, I would assume, I  ║
 ║        have not been in Razor 1911 at the time an HQ board was appointed,  ║
 ║        that a HQ board would be selected on the basis of hardware, nodes,  ║
 ║        traffic, and of course the sysops level of contribution.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: On the note of experience that you mentioned earlier, what          ║
 ║        surprises me is that many of the Prestige leaders such as The       ║
 ║        Renegade Chemist and Zeus, were former leaders of Razor 1911        ║
 ║        during its peak.  Why wouldn't they be showing the experience that  ║
 ║        they have acquired over the years in making sure that Prestige      ║
 ║        releases work in a more timely fashion?                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: In a new group environment, having established people, such as The  ║
 ║        Renegade Chemist and Zeus is always a plus, but it cannot totally   ║
 ║        evade the problems which arise in a new group.  You must keep in    ║
 ║        mind that a group is a group, a team effort I should say.  You      ║
 ║        cannot base a group on the merits of a few strong individuals.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I do find it interesting that many Razor 1911 couriers are also     ║
 ║        couriers in Rapier.  Why is that so?  Is Rapier official couriers   ║
 ║        for Razor 1911?  For example, on Street Spyders, the Razor 1911     ║
 ║        WHQ which also happens to be one of the fastest boards in the       ║
 ║        world, most of the top uploaders are usually members of Rapier and  ║
 ║        Razor 1911.  Perhaps there is a team effort here?                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: It is purely coincidence that many Rapier couriers are also Razor   ║
 ║        1911 couriers.  Both Rapier and Razor 1911 only take the best,      ║
 ║        therefore, it is likely that both groups will have a similar        ║
 ║        member base.  It also happens to be that Street Spyders is the      ║
 ║        Rapier US HQ and also being the Razor WHQ.  Rapier obviously wants  ║
 ║        the best boards, and so does Razor 1911, therefore it is likely     ║
 ║        that their choices would overlap.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I heard rumors that Rapier might have disbanded earlier this week,  ║
 ║        or that perhaps many Rapier members left Rapier for Everlast        ║
 ║        because you did not have enough time to run the group, is there     ║
 ║        any truth to that?  Is Rapier still alive?                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: I cannot comment on Rapiers current status.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Ever since my friends brought me into the scene, I've always asked  ║
 ║        myself, "What does the 1911 in Razor 1911 mean?"  Nobody has ever   ║
 ║        been able to tell me, but I do hope that you will be able to        ║
 ║        answer that question.  And please do, or I will have to kill you.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: 777h.                                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: 777h?  What does that mean?  I will kill you if you don't tell me.  ║
 ║        Is 1911 some kind of Satanic thing?  Like, you take 1911 and you    ║
 ║        some how rearrange the numbers, and then you multiply and subtract  ║
 ║        them in some strange fashion, and you get 666?  Like that Ozzy      ║
 ║        Osbourne music video, where his forehead has a 9454 print, and      ║
 ║        it's actually some sort of allusion to the printmark of the Beast   ║
 ║        (Anti-Christ) found in the Bible?  See, I was bored, so I tossed    ║
 ║        9454 in my head, and if you multiply 9 times 4, you get 36.  Now    ║
 ║        if you add 5 plus 4, you get 9, so now you're left with 369.  So    ║
 ║        if you take 3 from 9 and add that 3 to the first 3, you get 666.    ║
 ║        This can be confusing, but you get the point.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RZR█: I suppose we will leave that as a mystery.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Bummer.  Oh well, you can't win them all.                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║        and I decided that when we were in ROR (Release on Rampage), our    ║
 ║        work was being wasted.  Morphine's supplies were being done by      ║
 ║        Prestige first, and my couriering was pointless for a release       ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █MOR█: No, well all of the releases I obtained took ROR too long to get    ║
 ║        out and they never got the releases it out it was getting on my     ║
 ║        nerves so we decided to start up Epic so that we could make sure    ║
 ║        that that crap didn't happen to me and other suppliers.  I don't    ║
 ║        want to sound like I'm dissing ROR, but the records do show that    ║
 ║        ROR released very FEW games.                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Morphine, when you supplied for ROR, why did it take them so long   ║
 ║        to release something?  Were they busy checking to make sure that    ║
 ║        the game was fully cracked and working?  If so, then ROR's          ║
 ║        precaution would actually be good for the scene.                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █MOR█: Well, it just seemed that the people that they needed were never    ║
 ║        around to do their job to get the releases out.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: In a way then, Epic is a split off of ROR?  Now that Epic is here,  ║
 ║        what distinguishes it from other release groups?  What makes it     ║
 ║        special?  Why is it not just ANOTHER lame one week games group?     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █BUG█: Well, only the leadership of Epic split off of ROR, and even then   ║
 ║        we don't think of it like that.  ROR was simply the group that      ║
 ║        both Morphine and I were in at one point in time.  We don't really  ║
 ║        consider ourselves special, we just get the job done and will       ║
 ║        continue to do so.  You should also know that Morphine and I were   ║
 ║        away from the scene for a while before this, so we were only in     ║
 ║        ROR a few weeks.  I'm not saying that ROR is bad, but we really     ║
 ║        don't have anything to do with them anymore.                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Specify what you meant when you said, "We don't really consider     ║
 ║        ourselves special, we just get the job done and will continue to    ║
 ║        do so."  What are you guys doing that you will contine to do, but   ║
 ║        that does not make Epic special?                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █MOR█: Well, Epic is no different than any other games group which has     ║
 ║        succeeded except that we are doing so in a smaller scale.  We get   ║
 ║        our releases and we get them cracked and we get them out to the     ║
 ║        sites.  That's how the scene is, you don't need to be special to    ║
 ║        do that, you just need to be organized.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: While running Epic, have you encountered any problems?  I have      ║
 ║        heard rumors that the release of Gender Wars was supposed to be     ║
 ║        released by Epic, but the release was then stolen by Prophet, the   ║
 ║        leader of Napalm, is that true?                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █BUG█: Well, we like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, and if     ║
 ║        Prophet did it by accident, then we can forgive that, but there is  ║
 ║        a little bit of doubt.  We had placed our release on the Internet   ║
 ║        shell account of X-Factor, a Legion leader, while waiting for a     ║
 ║        cracker to get it.  It seems that somehow Dark Force found the      ║
 ║        release on the shell (it's also a Legion release site), and gave    ║
 ║        it to Prophet.  Prophet then uploaded it to Pentium Domination.     ║
 ║        It could be an innocent mistake.  We also got conflicting answers   ║
 ║        by Prophet when he was questioned, and he never did admit to it.    ║
 ║        But tracing the path of the spread clearly leads back to Pentium    ║
 ║        Domination where it was uploaded by Prophet.  We missed the final   ║
 ║        release of Gender Wars to Razor 1911 by only a few minutes, and if  ║
 ║        now for this extreme distraction we would probably have had the     ║
 ║        release.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You lost the release to Razor 1911?  Did Napalm actually ever       ║
 ║        release the Gender Wars stolen from Epic?  Prophet is known for     ║
 ║        stealing cracks and releases from other games groups, but did he    ║
 ║        actually do anything with the stolen release this time?             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █BUG█: No, which points to the fact that it could have been an accident,   ║
 ║        and they didn't know it was uncracked.  However, there is always    ║
 ║        the possibility that Napalm WAS cracking the Epic release and       ║
 ║        simply didn't do it in time.  The conflicting answers from Prophet  ║
 ║        don't make it seem any more likely to be the first.                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: On the note of another release, NHL PowerPlay, which was released   ║
 ║        by Coredump, but unfortunately, the game was knowingly released     ║
 ║        without a crack.  I later noticed that Epic released NHL PowerPlay  ║
 ║        as well, is the Epic version any different from Coredump's          ║
 ║        careless release, or was the Epic release of NHL PowerPlay also     ║
 ║        uncracked?                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █BUG█: No, it was not a dupe.  It was one of the best possible releases    ║
 ║        for a new group such as Epic.  Coredump knowing that it was not     ║
 ║        cracked, released it uncracked, and it was nuked everywhere, which  ║
 ║        led to the humiliating fact that many members of Coredump started   ║
 ║        denying the fact that they were even in the group.  Razor 1911      ║
 ║        declared that the game was uncrackable, and Holy Beast from         ║
 ║        Prestige tried to crack it but failed.  However, Misha, the god of  ║
 ║        cracking, cracked the game for Epic.  To help out the people who    ║
 ║        can't follow directions from the NFO, you must do a CUSTOM install  ║
 ║        and then you must do a select all.  That should keep the channel    ║
 ║        #Epic free from being flooded by lamers, wait, calling stupid       ║
 ║        people "lamers" is politically incorrect, I actually meant "people  ║
 ║        with low intelligence" or rather, "the installationally             ║
 ║        challenged."                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Has Coredump shown any resentment toward Epic?  After all, Epic     ║
 ║        did make Coredump look really lame.  Yes, and I do call them lame.  ║
 ║        I don't like being politically correct, so sue me.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █BUG█: Well, Incarnate and Perfect Form have been the only ones to give    ║
 ║        us any problems.  They tried to get NHL PowerPlay cracked like 5    ║
 ║        days after we released our working version, but they still          ║
 ║        couldn't get it cracked so they got really mad and started telling  ║
 ║        every one how the Epic version of NHL PowerPlay didn't even work    ║
 ║        when everyone who downloaded it would know that it does work.  I    ║
 ║        think that most Epic members are still banned from channel #CD      ║
 ║        (Coredump's IRC channel), and a few of Coredump members did try to  ║
 ║        infiltrate Epic, rather pathetically too since we knew that the     ║
 ║        Coredump spies were discussing "tricking Epic."  I believe there    ║
 ║        were a couple threats, and tKLP informed us that Incarnate was      ║
 ║        trying to steal our crack for their release.                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What do you mean when you said, "A few of their members tried to    ║
 ║        infiltrate us?"                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █BUG█: Someone named Pioneer tried a "I really hate Coredump, I want to    ║
 ║        join Epic," but we have our own spies in channel #CD and we were    ║
 ║        totally aware of their pathetic attempts at infiltrating Epic.      ║
 ║        Some other members of Coredump tried as well, but Pioneer was       ║
 ║        their best actor.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Dam, with spies and all, I'm surprised they're not Communist or     ║
 ║        something.  They do the stupidest things, they HAVE to be           ║
 ║        Communist, it just doesn't make sense.  Anyway, what are your       ║
 ║        future plans for Epic?  If bigger games groups such as Prestige or  ║
 ║        Razor 1911 asked you to have Epic merge into them, would you agree  ║
 ║        to it?                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █BUG█: Actually a group called Precision asked us to merge into them       ║
 ║        about 2 days ago but we were NOT interested.  Epic would not be     ║
 ║        interested in merging into either Prestige or Razor 1911 because    ║
 ║        we're looking to compete with them and to eventually replace them.  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: What kind of group is CB4 (Cellblock 4)?                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: First of all, I would like to tell you who I am.  Like 8 months     ║
 ║        ago, my ex-boyfriend (and YES, I am a girl) introduced me to some   ║
 ║        of the members of oG (The Original Gangsters Syndicate, a little    ║
 ║        Swedish group).  I started supplying for them.  Later on, I         ║
 ║        established contact with Ivanhoe (now one of the leaders of CB4)    ║
 ║        and some of the other members of the old Rebels.  When they left    ║
 ║        Rebels and started CB4, they convinced me to join them as a leader  ║
 ║        of the group.  CB4 is a release group.  Our goal is to crack and    ║
 ║        release all that we can get our hands on and to have FUN!!!         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: When you mentioned "the old Rebels," to what were you referring     ║
 ║        to?                                                                 ║

 ║ █CB4█: Some of the old members of Rebels left Rebels to help start CB4.    ║
 ║        Leatherman, who was a former leader in Rebels, started CB4 near     ║
 ║        the end of 1995 with only a few crackers.  In the beginning of      ║
 ║        1996, 2 more Rebels members, Ivanhoe and Mercury, joined his        ║
 ║        efforts.  In February, CB4 merged with oG, where some of my         ║
 ║        seniors and I joined CB4, and that's when CB4 became a real group,  ║
 ║        and not just one of the small groups.  Later on, Leatherman left    ║
 ║        the group due to personal problems and after a short while,         ║
 ║        Imposter joined CB4 as a leader.                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Do you consider your group, CB4, a top notch releasing group?       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: Well, we want to stay a small group, with only 1 or 2 member sites  ║
 ║        and no boards or couriers.  Sure, a small group can have problems   ║
 ║        as well, but it's easier to keep the group together when everyone   ║
 ║        knows each other.  That makes it easier to work together as a       ║
 ║        team.  All our members are 100% loyal to the group, and you know,   ║
 ║        you don't have to be big in size to be a great release group!       ║
 ║        Sometimes, when things are going really well with the releasing     ║
 ║        and stuff, it's easy to develop a big ego.  But in a small group    ║
 ║        like ours, there is always someone there to pull you down from the  ║
 ║        skies again.  To be honest with you, it is more important that our  ║
 ║        members have the right personality, than that they can supply like  ║
 ║        7 releases a week.  The most important thing for us is to have      ║
 ║        fun, and we like the laid back attitude towards the scene.          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Has CB4 ever released warez before other release groups?            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: Yes, we have released like 10 to 20 releases a week in the last     ║
 ║        couple of weeks.                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Does CB4 specialize in releasing games, or utils, or both?          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: We only release utils.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Would you say that CB4 ranks up with other utils groups such as     ║
 ║        Mortality?                                                          ║

 ║ █CB4█: Yeah, sure, we are kicking the scene right now and we have lots     ║
 ║        and lots of releases, but as I said before, the most important      ║
 ║        thing for us is to have fun and we are not competing with anyone.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Please tell us what having fun in your group is like.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: Well, we all do it because it's a nice way of breaking the law,     ║
 ║        hehe, no.  It's fun to see how far you can go with a small group    ║
 ║        like ours.  Many other BIG groups wants to merge with us, but we    ║
 ║        want to keep the group small so that we don't HAVE to do things in  ║
 ║        any other way but our own CB4 way.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: How long has CB4 been around in the scene?                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: Eh, Leatherman started the group in 1995 and we have been           ║
 ║        releasing like 10 to 20 releases a week since February.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Where do you guys get so many releases?  How do CB4 suppliers       ║
 ║        obtain their software?                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: No, now I'm lying to you.  In February and March, we had like       ║
 ║        20-30 releases a month.  Hey, never tell anyone how our suppliers   ║
 ║        get their hands on the software!  Rule #1!!!                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Let me take a wild guess, are they beta testers?                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: Bwhahahhaha, I won't tell you!!!                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You've made your point abundantly clear that CB4 is a small group,  ║
 ║        but it is probably receiving plenty of applications each week.      ║
 ║        For those who might be interested, how are applicants selected to   ║
 ║        be given membership in CB4?                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: Like I said before, the most important thing for us when we look    ║
 ║        at applicants is not whether or not they can supply thousands of    ║
 ║        releases, but their personality.  We want to keep the group small,  ║
 ║        so I guess it's hard to join us.                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I have asked many people about CB4, it seems that no one has ever   ║
 ║        heard of the group (including me), you said CB4 was very good and   ║
 ║        that it released 10 to 20 releases a week, and yet, nobody knows    ║
 ║        about the group, how can that be?                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: Well, perhaps they don't read RCN!?  Or perhaps you've been asking  ║
 ║        the wrong people?  Nah, but we are a small group and we don't make  ║
 ║        much noise.  Our releases are on all the big sites and you have     ║
 ║        them in your weekly warez list, so I don't know why people haven't  ║
 ║        heard about us.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You mentioned earlier that some other groups wanted to merge with   ║
 ║        CB4, can you name some?                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █CB4█: No, I don't want to do that.  I don't know if the other groups      ║
 ║        would like that, but I can tell you this, those groups that asked   ║
 ║        us are the biggest in the scene.  :)                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: I've been informed that tHA is one of the largest internet          ║
 ║        takeover groups around, is its reputation warranted?  What does     ║
 ║        tHA do that makes it so well known?                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █EfM█: Well, to begin with tHA isnt the group name, it is tHA EfNet        ║
 ║        Mafia, and the acronym is EfM, but we are a bunch of well known     ║
 ║        people on the Internet that well, just takeover IRC channels as a   ║
 ║        challenge and during our free time try to takeover those channels   ║
 ║        to see if we can overcome the odds.                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What does tHA stand for then?  I always thought that tHA was the    ║
 ║        abbreviation of the group name, but if it's not, then what does it  ║
 ║        stand for?                                                          ║

 ║ █EfM█: No tHA, doesn't stand for anything.  I am not sure where that       ║
 ║        might have come from.  It was just always the first name of our     ║
 ║        group.                                                              ║

 ║ █RCN█: So EfM only takes over channels that are deemed impossible to       ║
 ║        takeover?  Which channels has EfM takenover in the recent weeks?    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █EfM█: Recently, well, most likely the largest channel we have taken has   ║
 ║        been channel #Exceed, but we lost it after a mere 10 minutes, and   ║
 ║        smaller channels that we have taken over range from #MircScripts,   ║
 ║        #Eggdrop, and many of the kid/teen/incest sex pics, #Femdom,        ║
 ║        channels covering a large span of our taken channels.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Has EfM ever tried taking over channels such as #Twilight_Zone      ║
 ║        where a lot of the only people that hang out there happen to be     ║
 ║        IRC ops.  That would be a challenge, but it would also range on     ║
 ║        the stupid side as well, right?                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █EfM█: I personnaly cannot afford being k-lined off any more EfNet         ║
 ║        servers, but it hasn't been tried for obvious reasons.  Some        ║
 ║        members have been plotting for a channel on DalNet called           ║
 ║        #Dragon_Realm with is the equivilant channel on DalNet.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Taking over channel #Exceed must piss off some fATE (Fast Action    ║
 ║        Trade Exchange) members right?  I mean, don't you think it might    ║
 ║        be working against the scene to takeover channels where people can  ║
 ║        freely distribute warez?                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █EfM█: No one in EfM is a so called "warez puppies" as deemed by EfM       ║
 ║        members.  But definitley, especially MadCrew the people that        ║
 ║        "guard" #Exceed for fATE.  Our members are mainly just serious      ║
 ║        hackers and taking over channels is relaxing fun.  Also, channel    ║
 ║        #exceed is not the only warez channel that we have taken,           ║
 ║        #warez99, #warez69, #warez, #warez-weapon have all fallen victim    ║
 ║        to us recently.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What happens when a channel falls victim to EfM, do you guys try    ║
 ║        to keep ops over a victimized channel permanently, or perhaps you   ║
 ║        guys just close those channels down by making them +i?              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █EfM█: In the past we have just done it for fun and only kept control for  ║
 ║        24 hours (+/- a few hours) not much longer.  But recently, grudges  ║
 ║        are forming between us and many channels, which may or may not      ║
 ║        force us to hold or shut down the channel for a longer time.  Most  ║
 ║        likley #Ansi has been the channel we have help for the longest      ║
 ║        time, which was I think a day or two.  We really didn't have a      ║
 ║        problem with #Ansi to begin with, just one of our members and one   ║
 ║        of their ops kind of got into a grudge match, and it had to be      ║
 ║        settled.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: But why settle a grudge betwee a channel #Ansi op and a EfM member  ║
 ║        by fucking up #Ansi, and in the process, fucking up so many other   ║
 ║        innocent bystanders?  There are a lot of people that like to chat   ║
 ║        in #Ansi, and shutting it down really fucks things up needlessly.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █EfM█: It was a match between 2 people until the other person spoofed an   ║
 ║        address and grabbed our channel, which makes our people pissed off  ║
 ║        and then after we were done made their people pissed off.  It all   ║
 ║        went hand in hand.  Also, who said we were nice.                    ║

 ║ █RCN█: EfM has a channel?  Is it open to the public, if so, what's the     ║
 ║        name of it?  I assume you won't be afraid to give out the name of   ║
 ║        the channel EfM members hang out in, after all, I doubt the EfM     ║
 ║        channel gets taken over much.                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █EfM█: We can often be spotted in the many scripting channels.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Well, what's the EfM channel?  I don't want to know where I can     ║
 ║        find EfM members.  I mean, EfM is a top notch channel takeover      ║
 ║        group, you guys are more than able to protect your own channel, so  ║
 ║        telling me what your channel is should not really matter right?     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █EfM█: Honestly, taking over channels is much more simplistic than         ║
 ║        protecting a channel, but we will soon be moving to #EfM and we     ║
 ║        can all be found there.  We HAD a web page until the provider       ║
 ║        found it to be "illegal" and is now being moved to a mirror         ║
 ║        provider.  We do not have a Ascii NFO file or a loader.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: To takeover channels, scripts can be very useful.  Are there any    ║
 ║        EfM members that write private takeover scripts, or other private   ║
 ║        scripts that help collide, etc?                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █EfM█: All of the members have their own personal prefrences, we have and  ║
 ║        EfM script which is 3/4 of the way done.  To deal with the scripts  ║
 ║        we have, some of the MOST TALENTED and poplular scripters around    ║
 ║        such as IceKitten, god (also President of EfM), Cyko, Chak, JFK,    ║
 ║        Jester, and countless others which are all working together on      ║
 ║        forming this members only script.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: Many know that Legion started a few weeks ago, and has shown its    ║
 ║        presence in the utils scene as a group with a lot of potential.  I  ║
 ║        am aware that Legion came about as a merge, but which groups        ║
 ║        merged to form Legion?                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGN█: Basically, Legion was a merge between Siva and Logistix, but 000    ║
 ║        (former leader of Dawn/Fierce) also brought along some of their     ║
 ║        members after it died, and so what Legion really is, is the best    ║
 ║        of Dawn, Logistix, and Siva.                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: The best of Dawn, Logistix, and Siva?  From what I know, none of    ║
 ║        the 3 groups had any real quality and reputation.  How has          ║
 ║        bringing the best of the 3 groups formed a better and more          ║
 ║        respectable group, Legion?                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGN█: What we really did was cut a lot of members down.  We took all our  ║
 ║        suppliers (respectively), and some other important members, and     ║
 ║        created a new group with 3 times the suppliers, and we are all      ║
 ║        very dedicated and working toward being a competition to the more   ║
 ║        respectable utils releasing groups.  And we all treat each other    ║
 ║        with respect, work together, and that is what really brings a good  ║
 ║        group together.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I am aware that Judge Dredd was the leader of Dawn, but I do not    ║
 ║        see him as a part of Legion?  Was he taken out of Legion because    ║
 ║        he was dead weight?  Or did Legion merely take the suppliers out    ║
 ║        of Dawn and left all other members of Dawn to themselves?           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGN█: Well, Dawn wasn't really considered a part of the merge I think.    ║
 ║        This is because 000 came to Legion after Logistix and Siva had      ║
 ║        already merged for a few days, but as for Judge Dredd, I haven't    ║
 ║        seen him for a long time, and I think he's with a courier group     ║
 ║        right now.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Were there any problems that resulted when the merge did take       ║
 ║        place?                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGN█: What we really needed was some organization at first, but after a   ║
 ║        little while, everything went well, and we had our releases going.  ║
 ║        However, since we had some top couriers in the group, they were     ║
 ║        all arguing about who gets to spread the releases to which sites.   ║
 ║        That was bothering us for a few days, but in the end, we got it     ║
 ║        all settled down, and everything went smoothly from there on.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Which top couriers argued about where the releases should be        ║
 ║        spread, and how did everything eventually settle down?  Did you     ║
 ║        just tell all your couriers to stop arguing, or did you have to     ║
 ║        threaten to kick them out of Legion before they would listen?       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGN█: I would rather not reveal their names, but we have thought about    ║
 ║        it for a while, and have asked a few of them to resign or upload    ║
 ║        to another site.  But in the end, everything worked out alright,    ║
 ║        no conflicts, nothing.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Many young utils groups, and by far, Legion is not an exception,    ║
 ║        go through troubles when they first release.  Nearly all young      ║
 ║        utils groups go through troubles of releasing utils that are        ║
 ║        broken or are dupes.  How has Legion answered to those that accuse  ║
 ║        it of releasing warez that are broken and on several occasions,     ║
 ║        releases that are dupes?                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGN█: I have no comment, but I do believe that we have not duped on any   ║
 ║        release.                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Do you believe that there might be any egos within the group?  For  ║
 ║        example, a few days ago, when I joined channel #Legion, I was       ║
 ║        threatened of being banned from #Legion by X-Factor, Legion         ║
 ║        Council, simply because I was joining the channel to look for a     ║
 ║        friend, and when I couldn't find my friend, I left the channel.     ║
 ║        He got extremely mad at me and started yelling at me because I      ║
 ║        joined and then left the channel.  Do you believe that attitudes    ║
 ║        as such might be hurting the group?  After all, nobody likes        ║
 ║        working with stuckup egos.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGN█: Well, X-Factor is an exception. I've known him for a while, he's    ║
 ║        special.  He just about pissed off everyone in the group,           ║
 ║        including me, but he's a nice guy if you know him.  But as for the  ║
 ║        egos, there have been no egos in the group, and if there ever will  ║
 ║        be, it will be dealt with seriously.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: In your opinion, how does Legion stand among the better utils       ║
 ║        groups such as PWA (Pirated with Attitudes) and Rebels?             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGN█: We are still new at this, but our members all have experience, and  ║
 ║        we are still in the process of organization, but once everything    ║
 ║        is settled, we will be a competition to them.  We got all the       ║
 ║        suppliers we need, and all we need now is time, time to build up    ║
 ║        our name so we can stand up there with some of the other stronger   ║
 ║        utils groups.                                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: You mentioned earlier that there were conflicts between different   ║
 ║        top couriers within Legion.  Has that hindered Legion's ability in  ║
 ║        seeking after an official courier group to courier Legion           ║
 ║        releases?                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGN█: About official couriers, we had a lot of thought on that.  But we   ║
 ║        do have a strong Internet team, and we are on all the top sites of  ║
 ║        the world, so couriering shouldn't be a problem.  However, we did   ║
 ║        consider Empire as our official couriers, but the                   ║
 ║        negotiations/terms came out differently from what we discussed, so  ║
 ║        we decided to go with Malice at the moment.                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What were these negotiations/terms that were not met by Empire?     ║
 ║        Did Empire not live up to their word?  Or perhaps Legion was        ║
 ║        simply more interested in being affiliated with Malice because it   ║
 ║        is an older group and is more well known?                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █LGN█: Well, Empire did not meet the terms that one of their staff said,   ║
 ║        because it seemed that their staff have different points of view.   ║
 ║        We had a great offer from Empire, and after it was all settled,     ║
 ║        another Empire staff gave us a different story.  And since a few    ║
 ║        of the Legion Council are also members of Malice, and Malice is an  ║
 ║        older group with a lot more experience, and had an even better      ║
 ║        offer, it makes sense to have them spread our releases.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: WWR (World Wide Releasing) never ceases to amaze me.  It's one of   ║
 ║        those small groups that have been around for a long time, but has   ║
 ║        yet to change much.  How is that so?  And for those who don't know  ║
 ║        much about WWR, what kind of release group is WWR?                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: Well, WWR has gotten itself a big reputation on a local level, but  ║
 ║        not so much on the Internet.  WWR is a releasing group, and it      ║
 ║        releases utils.  I guess we didn't got the right people for doing   ║
 ║        the right stuff.  We had fATE (Fast Action Trade Exchange)          ║
 ║        couriering for us, but that didn't help much either.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Why has it gained respect only on a local level?                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: As I said, we didn't had the right people to do the couriering      ║
 ║        stuff, and localy it was more easier for our own couriers to move   ║
 ║        WWR releases from board to board without calling long distance or   ║
 ║        phreaking for it.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Certainly, fATE could only help WWR spread warez in as much as WWR  ║
 ║        can release, and in that, I have yet to see much, so the fault was  ║
 ║        not with fATE, but with WWR.  What did you expect fATE to do for    ║
 ║        WWR that would have helped the group?                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: Well, first, fATE was coming to me with their offer, to courier     ║
 ║        for WWR.  I of course said yes and told the other high membership   ║
 ║        about it.  It wasn't what I expected it to be.  I thought they      ║
 ║        would courier NOT only to their sites, but IRC offers and BBS       ║
 ║        also, and I thought that they would support WWR's boards as well.   ║
 ║        I guess I was wrong.                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Most utils groups have seniors that are based in the U.S., but      ║
 ║        I've been informed that most WWR seniors live in Europe, is that    ║
 ║        true?                                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: Yes, we have two seniors that live in the U.S., and two that live   ║
 ║        in Europe.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What are some of WWR's quality releases in the recent weeks?        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: Some of WWR's best releases include Visual Basic v4.2, Delphi       ║
 ║        v2.1, Romworks, Access Developer v7.0, and Paint Shop Pro v4.0.     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: After WWR left fATE, did WWR seek out for another courier group     ║
 ║        that could satisfy its needs?                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: Well, that "leave" happened only 2 days ago, so for now, I don't    ║
 ║        know where to go, there is Malice, RTS (Request to Send), RiSC      ║
 ║        (Rise in Superior Couriering), and others.  I'm just waiting for    ║
 ║        the right courier group to show up that will help WWR out in        ║
 ║        couriering.                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What makes you think that any of the above mentioned courier        ║
 ║        groups would want to be official couriers for WWR?  What would you  ║
 ║        offer them?  You could offer them releases, and you named some      ║
 ║        good ones just a few minutes ago, but many of them were dupes and   ║
 ║        were thus nuked off all the major boards.                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: ALL of them?  Well, I can't really tell now what I have to offer.   ║
 ║        If they'll throw an offer or demand at me, I'll try to fulfill it   ║
 ║        and go with it.                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What makes WWR different from other utils groups?  There are tons   ║
 ║        out there and WWR might just be a dime a dozen.  What makes it      ║
 ║        better than other utils groups, or perhaps, it's not?               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: Well, I didn't say we're better than anyone out there.  It's just   ║
 ║        that there are TONS of utils coming out everyday in the stores,     ║
 ║        and not all the groups can release those utils.  So I try to fill   ║
 ║        in the missing spot of those utils and release them.                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: "... there are TONS of utils coming out everyday in the stores,     ║
 ║        and not all the groups can release those utils," what do you mean   ║
 ║        by that?  Why can't other utils groups release what WWR releases?   ║
 ║        Are WWR releases of low quality, and thus, other utils groups       ║
 ║        refuse to release them?                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: Well, some suppliers go to the store and bring whatever there is,   ║
 ║        and sometimes they miss one or two things.  So here are two good    ║
 ║        utils to worth releasing, and woops, no one got it.  So I try to    ║
 ║        grab it, and release it.  I also forgot to mention that we don't    ║
 ║        release any shitty util that comes out, we try to release only the  ║
 ║        utils that people will ACTUALLY use for their needs.  We don't      ║
 ║        release those shitty screen savers that people are juming just to   ║
 ║        release it.  You saw some of the titles I said, and you saw those   ║
 ║        are requested utils, so we release them.                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: There is one problem though, I just went through a dupe check list  ║
 ║        on BBX, a very fast RiSC site, and none of those files you          ║
 ║        mentioned are on there released under WWR.  I also received word    ║
 ║        that the WWR releases you mentioned are not on there because they   ║
 ║        were nuked for being fakes or dupes, why is that?                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: Dupes?  You saw any where else that someone released those?  And I  ║
 ║        can't prove you that those were fakes.  The only thing that you     ║
 ║        could do to check them, is to download them yourself and see for    ║
 ║        yourself.  Maybe it's not on the sites because we've just started   ║
 ║        then and we were local.  Maybe someone told the siteops to nuke     ║
 ║        them because they were "dupes" and "fakes" and the siteops without  ║
 ║        checking it, just nuked it.                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: That is very possible, how long has WWR been around on the          ║
 ║        Internet?                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █WWR█: We've been on the internet for about 3 to 4 months, and we've been  ║
 ║        around in the scene for about 7+ months total.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║        for that group?                                                     ║

 ║ █DWN█: I was the founder and the leader of Dawn team since October of      ║
 ║        1995.                                                               ║

 ║ █RCN█: I know that Dawn the games group died in 1995 when it tried to      ║
 ║        merge into Legacy, another games group of which I was a part of,    ║
 ║        but I also know that Dawn the utils group was later revived in      ║
 ║        1996 and became quite prominent, yet once again, it has died, why   ║
 ║        is that so?                                                         ║

 ║ █DWN█: We started out as a game group back then, releasing some exellent   ║
 ║        games, but then somewhere in the beginning of 1996 we decided to    ║
 ║        release both games and utilities.  Then I decided to stay with      ║
 ║        utils and when Tyranny came back I went to them and Dawn became a   ║
 ║        utils only group.  We had released some pretty good stuff then,     ║
 ║        and was offered a lot of merges, but I I had bad expierence with    ║
 ║        merges, plus they were all in-merges meaning that Dawn was losing   ║
 ║        its name, until Fierce team came along.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What happened when to Dawn when the Fierce team came along?         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █DWN█: They were releasing very legit utilities back then, and they        ║
 ║        agreed to keep the name Dawn, and I thought to myself that in that  ║
 ║        time things couldn't be better, Dawn in RCN's weekly utils review   ║
 ║        in one of the weeks finished 2nd after PWA and now had more power,  ║
 ║        but I was wrong.                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: I do remember that Dawn finished 2nd in the utils review, and that  ║
 ║        is very good for a new utils group.  Dawn had a very good week, so  ║
 ║        it only seemed natural to show them off to the masses, but you      ║
 ║        also mention, "but I was wrong."  How were you wrong, and when did  ║
 ║        you realize that you were wrong?                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █DWN█: When I had to take 2 week break because of personal reasons and I   ║
 ║        left group for Ebola and Darkrage.  I am not going to blame either  ║
 ║        fo them.  Ebola had recieved $1000 phone bill and Darkrage had      ║
 ║        family problems, Anyway, when I return there was a complete mess,   ║
 ║        the channel had about 50 people in fighting and bullshitting.  I    ║
 ║        just couldn't take it.  I kicked everyone out and I decided to      ║
 ║        keep all of the loyal Dawn members, most of which were also         ║
 ║        suppliers.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: So you kicked everyone out of your group that couldn't supply, but  ║
 ║        that still should not have killed Dawn.  As long as you had         ║
 ║        suppliers, you should have been able to keep Dawn releasing.  Why   ║
 ║        did Dawn eventually die then?                                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █DWN█: We did not die.  We were looking for a nice place to merge.  We     ║
 ║        had the opportunities to merge into X-Force.  They're a great team  ║
 ║        but somehow when my people voted, they voted not to join them.      ║
 ║        Personally, I loved that opportunity, but I always consider the     ║
 ║        opinions of our people.  They wanted to go with Mortality, and I    ║
 ║        even sent Cryptic Pain a small release, but he just didn't seem     ║
 ║        too trustful of me, nothing personal, but yesterday we found our    ║
 ║        place where we want to be.                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What place is this?  Where did Dawn merge into?                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █DWN█: As of yesterday all Dawn members are getting ready for a complete   ║
 ║        team merging with Sodom and their great friendly team run by Tok    ║
 ║        and Jecksom.  I had been friends with both of them, and I think we  ║
 ║        can kick some real ass, they're already on top 5 no doubt!          ║
 ║        Together we can really kick it.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What are you talking about?  There is no way Sodom is not one of    ║
 ║        the top 5 utils groups.  It's not even in content, there are tons   ║
 ║        of other groups that are in much better views than they are.  I     ║
 ║        can easily find 5 other utils groups that easily outrank Sodom      ║
 ║        both in release power and reputation.  For example, I'm sure that   ║
 ║        DOD (Drink or Die) is better than Sodom.  I'm also sure that        ║
 ║        Mortality, PWA, Rebels, and X-Force are all better than etter than  ║
 ║        Sodom.  That makes 5 other utils groups.  Perhaps you merged Dawn   ║
 ║        into Sodom for alterior motives?                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █DWN█: No, I believe that Sodom has better potentials than anyone else     ║
 ║        right now. Just watch them.  There was no other reason for Dawn to  ║
 ║        merge into Sodom.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Yes, they do have the potential, but unachieved potential is        ║
 ║        useless.  Anyway, what position will you be taking once you are a   ║
 ║        part of Sodom?                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █DWN█: We're about to discuss it when Tok returns home from Moscow, but    ║
 ║        I'll have at least a council position.                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Why do you think Cryptic Pain, Mortality President, was so          ║
 ║        cautious in having you supply him with releases.  Shouldn't he      ║
 ║        have been grateful if those releases were of quality?  Do you have  ║
 ║        any ideas why he would not trust you?                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █DWN█: Oh no, he was grateful, but I told him not to release it, because   ║
 ║        in return for Dawn helping Mortality, he had to go with our         ║
 ║        couriering group to help Dawn out.  After I sent him a release and  ║
 ║        asked him if he's ready to go with our couriering group he said he  ║
 ║        wasn't sure and I told him not to release util I gave him, I        ║
 ║        didn't trust him enough.                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: What did you give him to release?  Was it a quality util?  If it    ║
 ║        was, he would have jumped on the opportunity instead of jerking     ║
 ║        around with you right?  Also, which courier group did you ask him   ║
 ║        to go with?                                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █DWN█: Oh, he wasn't jerking around.  It's just that he had another        ║
 ║        promise to someone else.  No, that was not a quality release, but   ║
 ║        it was very legit and useful 2 disk util.  Well, I don't think it   ║
 ║        matters now.  Actually, there is a big story with that, but it's a  ║
 ║        completely different story which has nothing to do with Cryptic     ║
 ║        Pain ofcourse.  He's a good leader and he made Mortality one of     ║
 ║        the best groups in the world in a short period of time, so          ║
 ║        whatever I said about me trusting him, it has nothing to do with    ║
 ║        his great abilities as a leader.                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Also, you mentioned earlier, "... pretty good stuff then, and was   ║
 ║        offered a lot of merges, but I I had bad expierence with merges,    ║
 ║        plus they were all in-merges meaning that Dawn was losing its       ║
 ║        name."  Isn't Dawn's current merge into Sodom an in-merge?  Why     ║
 ║        aren't you more cautious of Sodom, I thought you said that you had  ║
 ║        bad experiences with merges?                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █DWN█: Yes, but this time I am not aiming to run a group.  I am going to   ║
 ║        meaning that earlier when there was a merge I consider myself       ║
 ║        being of the leader, but now I stayed in the warez scene but I'm    ║
 ║        also join tradinng scene - a scene of a real challange and risc,    ║
 ║        not just sitting and packaging releases.  Therefore you're now      ║
 ║        interviewing Dredd & Impact.  I now officially change my name from  ║
 ║        Judge Dredd to Dredd & Impact.  As for Sodom, I'll be doing         ║
 ║        everything I can to get it on top.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║ █RCN█: What kind of courier group is fTP (Full Throttle Pirates)?          ║

 ║ █fTP█: Our intention was to courier mainly to sites belonging to fTP and   ║
 ║        some IRC couriering too.  We might start releasing as soon as we    ║
 ║        get us some suppliers.                                              ║

 ║ █RCN█: It is my understanding that your group is based in Finland, is      ║
 ║        that true?  If so, has that hindered fTP's ability in competing     ║

 ║        for?  Let me rephrase my question, which good courier groups have   ║
 ║        you been in?                                                        ║

 ║ █RCN█: Why did you leave Malice?  It certainly does have a better          ║
 ║        reputation than fTP.  Did you leave Malice to pursue your own       ║
 ║        goals of running your own courier group?  It seems like everyone    ║
 ║        says they've been a part of Malice these days, I'll have to check   ║

 ║ █RCN█: Many courier groups enjoy being official couriers for release       ║
 ║        groups.  Is fTP official couriers for any release groups?           ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║        they have yet to release anything.                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █fTP█: The new Legacy gave us nothing to courier so far.  Well, we are     ║
 ║        new and so is Legacy.  Or it's lame, I don't know.                  ║

 ║ █RCN█: What are your future plans for fTP?  How do you suppose to make it  ║
 ║        a better group than it is now?                                      ║

 ║ █fTP█: Of course!  We just started.  Our future plans are to start         ║
 ║        releasing as soon as we get some more suppliers.                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: So you plan to make fTP a release group?  I thought fTP was a       ║
 ║        courier group?                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █fTP█: Yes.  Clone is the other leader.  We already got some suppliers.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █RCN█: Wait, if fTP is a release group, then why is fTP official couriers  ║
 ║        for Legacy?  You guys really ought to make up your minds.           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║ █fTP█: We started out as couriers, and our future plans are to become a    ║
 ║        releasing group.                                                    ║

 ║ █RCN█: Do you guys plan on releasing games and utils, or do you plan on    ║
 ║        specializing fTP releases to either games or utils?                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║        we have not yet decided.                                            ║

 ║  releases?  I'm tired of downloading something to find that the filedates  ║
 ║  to the games have been rigged so it wouldn't get nuked, and I'm tired of  ║
 ║  downloading beta games that have been hex edited to say that they're the  ║
 ║  final version of something they're not.  You might be confused as to why  ║
 ║  ROR and RLX (Reflux) might have something in common, but hopefully, the   ║
 ║  log file will help clear things up.                                       ║

 ║      Some of you might be asking yourselves, why would ROR change its      ║
 ║  name to Reflux?  After all, ROR has been around for about 10 months now,  ║
 ║  and that does give it a reputation as being a stable group (even though   ║
 ║  that might not be the case).  Tklp has worked very hard in giving ROR a   ║
 ║  good name, he's very good at what he does.  I have to give credit where   ║
 ║  it's due, he was a pro at making the Quake Beta look like the Quake       ║
 ║  Final.  He even fooled me until Jay Wilbur from iD Software told me that  ║
 ║  ROR's release was not the final version.  Not every lamer can pull lame   ║
 ║  tricks like that, only really special lamers are stupid enough to do      ║
 ║  something like that.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      When word (thanks to RCN) got around that ROR's release of Quake was  ║
 ║  an intentional fake, many of the major bulletin boards and ftp sites      ║
 ║  decided to pool together and blacklist all ROR releases.  That made Tklp  ║
 ║  shit a brick, a real big brick, or rather, a small house.  Nobody would   ║
 ║  let him upload his fake releases anymore, because ROR*.* was blacklisted  ║
 ║  on so many popular boards.  Tklp then decided that it was time to change  ║
 ║  his group name from ROR to RLX.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Siteops and sysops, if you were smart enough to ban ROR*.*, well,     ║
 ║  you might as well change ban RLX*.* too.  There's really no difference    ║
 ║  between ROR and RLX except for the name.  I'll even show you the old ROR  ║
 ║  nfo and the new RLX nfo, and you can tell that RLX is still led by Tklp,  ║
 ║  and that many of the same ROR members are also RLX members.               ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  <RblChickn> I was informed that there was fighting in channel #Prestige,  ║
 ║              some Prestige members logged it for me.  I just haven't time  ║
 ║              to check on it yet.                                           ║

 ║  <RblChickn> Then that must have been something else.  What happened with  ║
 ║              you then?                                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <CrzyHorse> There is a board in my area code that the sysops here and     ║
 ║              the sysops there are friends.  A long time ago, we said that  ║
 ║              we would not take each others affiliations.  We made an       ║
 ║              agreement and also would not be in the same groups.  We felt  ║
 ║              it was better for the area code to have a lot of              ║
 ║              affiliations rather than just 2 or 3.  So, the sysops of      ║
 ║              that board learned how to supply games and are doing so for   ║
 ║              Razor 1911.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <RblChickn> Ah.. so this is a competition for suppliers between Prestige  ║
 ║              and Razor 1911?                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <CrzyHorse> Prestige made it seem like they were going to offer the       ║
 ║              sysops of that board membership in Prestige as member         ║
 ║              boards, but because of the agreement that we made, the        ║
 ║              sysops would have been unable to accept the Prestige offer.   ║
 ║              They would not have accepted anyway, even if Prestige asked,  ║
 ║              they have ALWAYS wanted to be in Razor 1911 and would not     ║
 ║              leave.  But because of the agreement, Prestige didn't want    ║
 ║              to be tied up so they said that they didn't want our board    ║
 ║              anymore.  Then, they rethought it and offered our board as a  ║
 ║              member board but not as a Courier HQ anymore.  We declined.   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <RblChickn> I see.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <CrzyHorse> So that is the story.  And I think it is total political      ║
 ║              group bullshit.  They didn't even ask the sysops of the       ║
 ║              board.  They were thinking.  If the original agreement        ║
 ║              between the sysops was not there, we could have gotten the    ║
 ║              Razor 1911 suppliers in Prestige.  But the truth is, if the   ║
 ║              Razor 1911 sysops REALLY wanted in the Prestige, they would   ║
 ║              have come to Prestige and said, "Look, we want in Prestige,"  ║
 ║              and then we would have worked something out.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <RblChickn> Who's the sysop of this Razor 1911 board?                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <CrzyHorse> You figure it out.                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <RblChickn> Ah, come on, don't be a bad sport.  How am I supposed to      ║
 ║              know who's who?                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <CrzyHorse> Look in the Razor 1911 nfo.  You'll figure it out I am sure.  ║
 ║              I can't tell you everything, no fun in that.                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      I never did find the time to investigate on that matter, but the      ║
 ║  names aren't really important.  This log file shows that games group      ║
 ║  politics all revolve around one thing, if you can supply games, you're    ║
 ║  important.  If you can't, then you're just another Crazy Horse, you       ║
 ║  might run a 10 node board, you might have helped the group in the past    ║
 ║  by being their Courier HQ, and you might even be as loyal to the group    ║
 ║  as a son is to a father, but in the end, none of that matters.            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I'm just glad I don't have to worry about supplying the latest        ║
 ║  releases out for a games group.  And if you're a supplier, find a group   ║
 ║  that likes you for YOU, and not because you can supply, you'll be         ║
 ║  happier that way.                                                         ║

 ║      About a year and a half ago, the Internet swept over the warez scene  ║
 ║  and introduced to it a new form of transporting files.  It boasted a new  ║
 ║  speed at which software could be distributed.  Everybody would log onto   ║
 ║  a UNIX shell account and transfer files at speeds exceeding 100k/s.       ║
 ║  Then the WWW came about and people all switched over to SLIP/PPP          ║
 ║  accounts.  And where did these "super fast speeds" all go?  Straight      ║
 ║  down the drain.  Now 85% of the users on the Internet are logged on to    ║
 ║  accounts that can push no more than 3k/s, and their end users are still   ║
 ║  boasting speeds of 100k/s, and I sit here confused.  These accounts are   ║
 ║  as gay as AOL accounts, slow!                                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      But there are still a select few of us that do use the traditional    ║
 ║  UNIX shell account.  Admittedly, it's a little harder to use than the     ║
 ║  PPP account, and it takes a few tries to get to know, but once one gets   ║
 ║  a shell account to work well and knows how to use it to perfection, the   ║
 ║  Internet is just a toy to be played with.  One of the great toys is the   ║
 ║  infamous temp directory.  A temp directory is a location on a UNIX shell  ║
 ║  provider on which big files can be stored for temporary use.  All         ║
 ║  providers have the directory, but it becomes useful beyond practicality   ║
 ║  on the really big ones.  Most UNIX shell accounts include a 5 MB disk     ║
 ║  quota.  This generally means that the average meggage of the files        ║
 ║  stored in the directory at a certain calculation time for the month       ║
 ║  cannot exceed 5 megabytes.  Some more stingy providers restrict shell     ║
 ║  accounts to 5 megabytes of quota at any given time, meaning that any      ║
 ║  file transfer exceeding 5 megabytes in size will be cancelled upon        ║
 ║  reaching this size limit.  These accounts are what I would refer to as    ║
 ║  "piles of crap" accounts.                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      We all know, however, that sometimes a HUGE release (size-wise) is    ║
 ║  released and we want to download it overnight, but don't want it to get   ║
 ║  added onto our quota size average.  In this case, the temp drive may be   ║
 ║  put to use.  On most providers, this directory is /temp but that is       ║
 ║  often a link to a directory such as /hack2/tmp.  Either one works.  Any   ║
 ║  user desiring a place to store some files for a temporary amount of time  ║
 ║  can resort to using this directory.  Many providers allocate a hard       ║
 ║  drive just for this directory, which is why it can also be referred to    ║
 ║  as a temp drive.  The user can copy his/her files to this directory and   ║
 ║  proceed to download them, quota-free.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Still, some of us just want MORE from our temp drives!  The big       ║
 ║  providers, the ones with members from around the country, the ones with   ║
 ║  many warez-affiliated members, are the ones that can give us that extra   ║
 ║  knack.  Some of the big providers don't care about warez on their         ║
 ║  drives, or are just not aware of their existence.  Some just choose not   ║
 ║  to interfere in the activity of their users, as that would imply          ║
 ║  censorship.  These providers tend to have temp drives filled to the top   ║
 ║  with the latest warez.  Of course, if you're quiet, you might even be     ║
 ║  able to snaggle some of these warez for yourself!  You can copy them to   ║
 ║  your home directory (cd ~) for download, you can copy them to another     ║
 ║  temp drive directory that only you have user rights to (man chmod for     ║
 ║  help on how to accomplish this), or, as courtesy would have it, you       ║
 ║  could just leech the warez directly from the directory in which they      ║
 ║  exist.  This is often the best thing to do as far as netiquette goes,     ║
 ║  because you won't be filling up the provider's drive with duplicate       ║
 ║  files.                                                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Anyway, a cheery hello to all of you out there that still use shell   ║
 ║  accounts, we know they're the best (hehe), and check out your temp        ║
 ║  drive, if you're lucky, you'll find more than you expected!               ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      The past month has been filled with a multitude of emails inquiring   ║
 ║  about Xenon, the RCN coder.  The extremists expressed religious           ║
 ║  attachments to Xenon, "Xenon is my God!!!"  Others expressed more subtle  ║
 ║  desires, "Xenon is one of the best coders I've seen in the scene!"  Some  ║
 ║  expressed a concern for the real-life Xenon, "So what's he like in real   ║
 ║  life?!"  And others just wanted something in return, "Can you like send   ║
 ║  me the RCN source code?  Uhuh uhuh uhuhuhuh.."  So I present to you, the  ║
 ║  life of a coder.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Xenon is 16 years old, yet his programming skills greatly exceed      ║
 ║  those of many third year college students.  His first programming         ║
 ║  experience was on an old Timex Sinclair 1000 computer at the age of just  ║
 ║  5 years.  When I found this out, my face was of pure astonishment.  When  ║
 ║  I was busy blowing soap bubbles into the wind, he was writing a program   ║
 ║  to blow up the world.  Xenon explained, however, that at 5, he never      ║
 ║  really made his own programs, but rather "modified the work of others."   ║
 ║  He said this quite nonchalantly and apparently didn't think anything of   ║
 ║  it.  Xenon then moved on to the Commodore 64 when he was 7, and by now,   ║
 ║  became quite an experienced coder.  He once even coded a game much like   ║
 ║  Pacman, from scratch.  He explained to me that he was a proud 7 year old  ║
 ║  when he found out how to use sprites for smoother scrolling and better    ║
 ║  looking graphics.  I was perplexed.  At 9, Xenon acquired a super dooper  ║
 ║  Apple IIe.  WOW.  His BASIC skills were now running at a MILLION hertz,   ║
 ║  but with a new and improved interface... or not.  He was still cookin'    ║
 ║  at a million hertz, but as unlike the Commodore 64, the graphics were     ║
 ║  easier to implement.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      In 6th grade, at 11 years of age, Xenon discovered the awesome        ║
 ║  capabilities of the IBM/PC XT.  This baby was pushing da bitz at 4.77     ║
 ║  Megahertz.  So much for color graphics, but 720x348 was a resolution      ║
 ║  previously unheard of.  He darted to school to let the rest of his        ║
 ║  classmates know about his new discovery, but for some reason, they        ║
 ║  seemed disinterested.  They were more concerned in the upcoming Sex-ed    ║
 ║  class.  The bell rang, and it was time to go home... or better yet, to    ║
 ║  jet down to the garage to see if he could scrounge up some of his dad's   ║
 ║  old "Compute!" magazines.  Then, back to his room so he could type in     ║
 ║  some of the included programs and see what they did.  If I haven't made   ║
 ║  it obvious enough, Xenon was a happy child.  Xenon's brother, who, by     ║
 ║  now was about to graduate from high school, had acquired a version of     ║
 ║  this totally k-rad new programming language called Turbo Pascal.  He      ║
 ║  wasn't so thrilled about learning a new language, but then he noticed     ║
 ║  one of his brother's programs, and found out about a new word to add to   ║
 ║  his now 11 year old vocabulary, COMPILE!  Long as it may have seemed, it  ║
 ║  would turn out to be a key word in his life.                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Turbo Pascal was faster, and could really take advantage of his 4.77  ║
 ║  Mhz XT.  It was now easier to perform more complex tasks (well, as        ║
 ║  complex as an 11 year old mind can do).  This was cool.  A new thing to   ║
 ║  do in his spare time.  He could draw lines, make boxes, fill them in,     ║
 ║  make patterns, and even use fonts!  He was now in 8th grade, and again    ║
 ║  he went to class to report of his new findings.  But once more, his       ║
 ║  classmates were not interested.  When they were thinking about boobs, he  ║
 ║  was thinking about booleans.  When they were talking about girls, he was  ║
 ║  talking aboug GotoXY's.                                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      More recently, namely in his Junior year, Xenon met Rebel Chicken,    ║
 ║  and Hitex and Rebel Chicken found a more useful way of using Xenon's      ║
 ║  talents.  Instead of having him code random programs "just for fun,"  we  ║
 ║  used it for extensive work with graphics and sound.  So now, you are      ║
 ║  running a program taking advantage of all of his skills.  Let me          ║
 ║  continue by explaining a few things about the coding in RCN.  I am doing  ║
 ║  this in response to the many letters to the editors that I have received  ║
 ║  in this past week.  Many of you have requested to know how RCN is coded.  ║
 ║  What the backbone of it is, and, most importantly, to see its source      ║
 ║  code.  I will try to answer all of your questions here, except, of        ║
 ║  course, the last one <grin>.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      RCN is coded in Turbo Pascal v7.0 for DOS.  Many rumors have erupted  ║
 ║  that we code it completely in Assembly (ASM).  Those are completely       ║
 ║  untrue, and there's a very good reason for why they are.  It would be     ║
 ║  stupid to.  Coding in 100% ASM takes an extremely long amount of time     ║
 ║  and there are no known benefits to doing so for something such as RCN.    ║
 ║  Turbo Pascal v7.0 does a wonderful job of implementing inline assembly    ║
 ║  (ASM code within the Pascal code), and there is no reason to dispute      ║
 ║  that.  The bulk of the interface is coded in Pascal, with the single      ║
 ║  exception of the text scroller.  That involves changing the vertical      ║
 ║  offset of the text screen, a process called "panning."  Nifty, eh?  We    ║
 ║  use the BIN format for storing the text screens, simply because it is     ║
 ║  easier to implement into the code, and is one less thing to worry about.  ║
 ║  Well, sort of.  It then poses the problem of dealing with files           ║
 ║  exceeding 64k (in the extracted EXE, BIN files compress extremely well).  ║
 ║  Memory is accessed in 64k blocks, and Xenon has implemented impressive    ║
 ║  swapping algorithms that barely cause any delay when viewing the          ║
 ║  magazine.                                                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The 3D design at the beginning of RCN is probably one of the more     ║
 ║  complicated parts of Reality Check Network.  It may look simple, but it   ║
 ║  involves the manipulation of polygons on 3 axis, all the while updating   ║
 ║  light shadowing from different angles.  The color palette is constantly   ║
 ║  updating to accommodate a wide array of colors while displaying           ║
 ║  different shades of each in the spinning of a mere 3 letters.  Groovy,    ║
 ║  isn't it?  The RCN ending is the displaying of a 320x200 (we tried        ║
 ║  640x480 last week, but it made the EXE too big) graphic while doing real  ║
 ║  time rendering of a graphic effect superimposed on it.  But by far the    ║
 ║  most complex part of the ending is what to call it.  I insist it's a      ║
 ║  magnifying glass, but Rebel Chicken argues that if it were a magnifying   ║
 ║  glass, it would have a stick to hold it by.  A friend once suggested      ║
 ║  that it is an elipse of which only one side is displayed but that didn't  ║
 ║  go over too well with Xenon, so we here at RCN studios just refer to it   ║
 ║  as "the thing."                                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The most impressive part of RCN is, of course, the game.  Many        ║
 ║  suggest that we have stolen Tyrian, but I beg to differ.  It never took   ║
 ║  you 30 minutes to beat one level of Tyrian.  The game engine is coded     ║
 ║  purely in ASM, merely because Xenon has yet to learn how to code a good   ║
 ║  game in Pascal and how to optimize his code so it doesn't require a       ║
 ║  Pentium Pro to run on.  The hard part is the randomizing of enemies       ║
 ║  while calculating the position of your ship and its relation to other     ║
 ║  ships and their bullets.  Without the use of ASM, all this crawled on a   ║
 ║  Pentium 100.  With all this to worry about, we decided Epic Megagames     ║
 ║  wouldn't be too discouraged if we merely "borrowed" their graphics for a  ║
 ║  few weeks.  And anyway, it's free advertising.  Moreover, the game takes  ║
 ║  a mere 30k zipped, where Tyrian takes 3 disks zipped.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      RCN is, still, probably most amazing in its behind-the-scenes work.   ║
 ║  In RCN's Issue #12, we had 8 articles and 8 interviews, but that was      ║
 ║  about where the content ended.  All the content, of course, edited and    ║
 ║  looked over by Hitex or Rebel Chicken to insure quality in context as     ║
 ║  well as in content.  However, in RCN #14, we added reviews and charts to  ║
 ║  our to-do list, and that lead to an extreme work overload.  We decided    ║
 ║  to put Xenon to work (we don't like to see him sitting around, it makes   ║
 ║  us feel guilty).  Now, we just do all our work in a regular DOS Edit      ║
 ║  window and never worry about formatting it into a nice looking layout.    ║
 ║  We leave that up to Xenon's "RCN Helper."  Hah, and you thought we        ║
 ║  actually slaved over an Acid Draw screen for hours on end.  Hell no, DOS  ║
 ║  Edit is much better <grin>.                                               ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      It seems that technology has always just barely kept up with the      ║
 ║  need of today's software, and the same can be said about RCN.  Our        ║
 ║  coding has always just barely kept up with our needs.  Using the old      ║
 ║  system of publication, RCN would never make it out the door in one week.  ║
 ║  Using Xenon's latest coding, however, we have the resources needed to     ║
 ║  keep up with the influx of submitted articles and interviews.             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Xenon is definitely one of the scene's greatest, we all know that     ║
 ║  without his great coding, RCN would just be an oversized version of       ║
 ║  Inquisition (available on WWW.RCN.ORG), and none of us would want that!   ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  they first go into warez rooms on IRC and start trading they suddenly     ║
 ║  feel an immense surge of power from a forbidden well.  When they see      ║
 ║  what's on offer, regardless of how big, whether they actually need it or  ║
 ║  not, indeed if they will ever use it after downloading it.  They just     ║
 ║  download it anyway, just another bargaining chip to bring to the channel  ║
 ║  for the games or utils they want.  It's become the rudimentry currency    ║
 ║  of the internet underground.  The months most publicised releases always  ║
 ║  being the most sought after.  Then after this introductory phase when     ║
 ║  they have all the software they want they still frequent the channels     ║
 ║  semi-serving to the new traders, a cry of, "What do you want?" will       ║
 ║  always respond with, "What have you got?" when they are at this phase.    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Once they tire of this level of interaction on the warez scene they   ║
 ║  move onto trying to provide services for others.  Serv-u ftp sites over   ║
 ║  28.8 are a common sight as well as mIRC fserves.  What with all the       ║
 ║  obvious channel names taken they create a new one and invite people onto  ║
 ║  it in the hope it will gain popularity and will become a permanent        ║
 ║  fixture on the IRC landscape.  However with their inexperience in         ║
 ║  scrpiting and creating a bot these channels tend to blossom and fold      ║
 ║  with the founder's appearences on the network.  More determined           ║
 ║  providers find suppliers outside of IRC and setup small warez groups      ║
 ║  releasing or couriering.  These groups don't last very long but with      ║
 ║  perserverence they will get offered a place in a medium sized group and   ║
 ║  start in the scene proper.                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      After a while playing in these leagues watching all the bigger,       ║
 ║  better groups beat you to releasing and couriering because all the        ║
 ║  members who have something to offer are already working for these         ║
 ║  groups.  If you're lucky you'll catch a break and pull of something       ║
 ║  special which will grab the attention of some of the bigger groups then   ║
 ║  you'll get pulled into the big leagues and swap in and out of groups for  ║
 ║  a while until settling in to a group where some of the people they knew   ║
 ║  before in the little leagues have settled as well then it pretty much     ║
 ║  ends there until they quit the scene.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The above bears resemblence to the average life of a warez trader.    ║
 ║  There are some variations, such as moving into the realms of emags based  ║
 ║  on the scene.  A sort of niche in the market, if you will.  This fine     ║
 ║  magazine bears proof to it.  In my opinion, a lot of time could be saved  ║
 ║  if the scene was better organised at the basic level.  Letting these      ║
 ║  warez pups (not my choice of term, BTW) run riot in the channels without  ║
 ║  any guidance means they will mature into the scene with anarchistic       ║
 ║  tendancies which lead to immature behavior such as channel takeovers,     ║
 ║  and other things such as narking and all kinds of things which            ║
 ║  ultimately sully the scene.  I realize that the very nature of the        ║
 ║  Internet is that of anarchy, however with a little self-restraint we      ║
 ║  might end up with better traders, couriers, and suppliers whose           ║
 ║  decisions are made with sober judgement and experience, not with          ║
 ║  immature emotion and threating behavior.  I know it may never happen,     ║
 ║  however I'd like to propose an idea to the scene as whole with I believe  ║
 ║  would lead to an enrichment of the scene while still retaining that       ║
 ║  wild, forbbiden side that entices many to it.  Heres what I suggest...    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I realize that many of the scene leaders may have grievences against  ║
 ║  each other, and that this may be a reason why this idea would never be    ║
 ║  taken up as it requires an agreement between a large number of groups of  ║
 ║  a standard.  The thing is you'd never know what someone was capable of    ║
 ║  until you've given them the chance to prove themselves.  The elitist      ║
 ║  nature of the majority of scene members counteract this.  Their pride     ║
 ║  won't allow them to accept that there is anyone better than them.  I      ║
 ║  suggest that an independent body be created to handle the training of     ║
 ║  these warez pups (again, not my choice of term) and their progress and    ║
 ║  abilities monitored, and at the end of their training some sort of award  ║
 ║  or recognition that they are in some way qualified to do a particular     ║
 ║  job in a warez group.  Of course for something like this to be taken      ║
 ║  seriously a lot of groups would have to agree to liason with this         ║
 ║  independent body in order for an appraisal of the applicant or maybe      ║
 ║  indeed groups would solicit this independent body for likely candidates   ║
 ║  whenever an opening in their group became available.  If a few groups     ║
 ║  would agree to recognise the recognition this independent body bestowed   ║
 ║  on them the scene would be better organized as this training could        ║
 ║  encompass a wide range of things from FTP methods to general behavior in  ║
 ║  a warez group.  I realize of course that this is a dream that will never  ║
 ║  happen due to the already choactic nature of the scene, however if        ║
 ║  enough respected and determined people got together it could happen       ║
 ║  groups could even begin to submit required techniques to the independent  ║
 ║  body for inclusion in their training.  How are these pups ever going to   ║
 ║  make it up the ladder without some sort of start that anyone with a bit   ║
 ║  of determination and skill could get.  You could count on the fingers of  ║
 ║  one hand the number of groups that provide internal training facilities.  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The only way to implement this would be to have it set up with all    ║
 ║  senior members and advisors independent of any other group to insure a    ║
 ║  degree of fair play, then the liason members of the groups that would     ║
 ║  recognise any of the qualifications handed out.  Then of course the       ║
 ║  students themselves who would see it as a road into a warez group with a  ║
 ║  solid reputation.  It would take some time for the standard to become     ║
 ║  accepted practise.  However if more people were trained up at the         ║
 ║  begginer we wouldn't see any of this lamer crap that the elitist types    ║
 ║  come out with.  Just because they've been in the scene longer and know    ║
 ║  all their stuff doesn't mean that in three months down the line, this     ║
 ║  supposed lamer wouldn't be running a kick ass warez group and the         ║
 ║  original so-called elite come knocking on his door.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Everybody came from the bottom rung, only those lucky enough to       ║
 ║  catch a break and get or become a good suppiler let their heads swell     ║
 ║  and prat around being k-rad elite.  Never forget where you came from,     ║
 ║  you were there once, they are there now, go on.  Give them a helping      ║
 ║  hand, you won't regret it.                                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Well, here comes a letter from one of its members, not very active    ║
 ║  lately due to personal shit going on. I was very surprised how two of     ║
 ║  your star signs applied directly in an abstract warez <> real life way    ║
 ║  to me and my present situation.                                           ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I am an Aries and the part regarding now comes a close to the         ║
 ║  sexiest part of my life seems to sum up how I feel at the moment.  My     ║
 ║  ex-girlfriend is a Taurus and she broke up with me on last Tuesday.  So   ║
 ║  that's the issue being more easily resolved shit over.  I guess the star  ║
 ║  signs were one week late but the days were right.  I am writing as I      ║
 ║  feel the warez/pc life had a major part in the breaking up.  It all       ║
 ║  dated back to some months when I decided to courier my ass off for NBC.   ║
 ║  I was dcc'ing 15+ gig PER day with 3-5 dcc's kicking non-stop.  After     ║
 ║  that I spent nearly 50-70% of my time on the PC (as most people will      ║
 ║  know).  I did have a VERY good looking girlfriend who did love me and     ║
 ║  all that shit.  But it all came to a head as she missed spending time     ║
 ║  with me and decided to wait and see if i would stop.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Well, of course without her telling me to spend more time with her    ║
 ║  besides sex (guess us males cant read minds like we're supposed to), I    ║
 ║  stayed on the PC and couriered more and more.  IRC was also taking a lot  ║
 ║  of time.  Anyway to get to the point, yes its fun to courier, chat, and   ║
 ║  dcc on the net but don't let it interfere with your real/love life.       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Well, I am now single again and don't feel like spending too much     ║
 ║  time on IRC or FTP sites.  I guess moderation is the key and realise      ║
 ║  this even though you're saving $$$$$ by download warez, are you actually  ║
 ║  saving $$ as would you have brought that lame game or util that took 5    ║
 ║  hours to download because of size and shit.  Anway here's to the warez    ║
 ║  scene and I hope it thrives (as more males in the scene = more females    ║
 ║  not getting sex).  Thats my 2 cents for once.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      Most of the parts in my main desktop PC get replaced every year or    ║
 ║  two by something newer and cooler, but I've been staring at the same 17"  ║
 ║  Nanao video monitor since I started chatting on IRC back in 1993.  Only   ║
 ║  the case, the keyboard and the floppy drives have survived longer.  Good  ║
 ║  monitors aren't cheap, but if recent history is any guide, that might be  ║
 ║  the one part of your computer that you can think of as a long term        ║
 ║  investment.  VGA and SVGA monitors have used the same cables and          ║
 ║  connectors for a decade now, and a top notch monitor from the early       ║
 ║  90's, with a .28mm dot pitch and a 64kHz maximum horizontal scan rate,    ║
 ║  still looks great by today's standards.                                   ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      About those numbers, we all know that computer images are composed    ║
 ║  of small blocks known as "pixels," but the screen of a color monitor is   ║
 ║  also a composite.  It's made up of many small red, green, and blue        ║
 ║  phospor dots, and the distance from dot to dot is known as the "dot       ║
 ║  pitch," usually measured in millimeters.  Hey, when I first got my PC, I  ║
 ║  didn't know what these meant.  So I was just about as lost as any lamer   ║
 ║  who found himself stuck in a #WarezX channel not knowing what "xdcc       ║
 ║  list" meant.                                                              ║

 ║      Most PCs are set up to display about 80 to 90 pixels per inch.  If    ║
 ║  you're handy with the metric system, you'll see that each pixel covers a  ║
 ║  bit more than a quarter of a milimeter, which is equal to a dot pitch of  ║
 ║  .25mm.  That dot pitch is found on some monitors, but .28mm is            ║
 ║  considered acceptable.  The smaller and more closely spaced the dots      ║
 ║  are, the sharper the picture will be, and the more the monitor will       ║
 ║  cost.                                                                     ║

 ║      Like movies and television, computer video is drawn a sequence of     ║
 ║  frames, one after another.  The number of frames drawn each second is     ║
 ║  the vertical scan rate.  The horizontal scan rate counts rows of pixels   ║
 ║  or "scan lines," per second.  These scan rates are controlled by the      ║
 ║  computer's video card, but the monitor still has to be able to keep up    ║
 ║  with the signal it receives.  A monitor's scan rates are listed as upper  ║
 ║  and lower limits.  If it's fed video outside of this range, the monitor   ║
 ║  won't be able to stay in sync, and the picture will appear to rool on     ║

 ║      The vertical scanning rate is rarely a problem.  Video cards usually  ║
 ║  operate between 60 and 75Hz, well within the range of most monitors.      ║
 ║  But that frame rate also affects the horizontal scan rate, which you can  ║
 ║  compute by multiplying the number of frames per second by the virtual     ║
 ║  resolution, adding in about 30 invisible lines scanned between video      ║
 ║  frames.  If a program runs at 1,204x768 resolution, the video card is     ║
 ║  feeding the monitor 768 lines of video per frame.  At a frame rate of     ║
 ║  72Hz, that means the monitor has to scan more than 57,000 lines per       ║
 ║  second, or 57kHz.  High resolution monitors usually have maximum          ║
 ║  horizontal rates of 64kHz or more.                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      A few features are found on newer monitors which didn't exist at the  ║
 ║  beginning of the decade.  Most support VESA's Display Data Channel        ║
 ║  (DDC), which lets the PC tell the monitor to enter a low power, energy    ║
 ║  saving sleep mode.  The latest designs are also Plug-n-PLay compatible,   ║
 ║  allowing the operating system to detect the type of monitor that's        ║
 ║  connected.  The biggest change we've seen in monitors has been in         ║
 ║  prices, particularly in the larger sized tubes.  A big monitor's extra    ║
 ║  display area really helps when you're displaying 800x600 pixels or more   ║
 ║  on the screen.  Microsoft Windows has made it easier to use a video       ║
 ║  card's high resolution display modes, making larger monitors much more    ║
 ║  popular.  Economy of scale has pushed prices down to the point where 17"  ║
 ║  monitors now start in the low $600's.                                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      That's not bad, but it isn't exactly cheap either, especially when    ║
 ║  you can get a name brand 25" television set for less than $250.  But      ║
 ║  there are a couple of reasons why televisions cost so much less, so many  ║
 ║  of them are built, and so little is expected of them.  No matter how big  ║
 ║  a TV screen is, it only has to display a standard 525 line, 60 frames     ║
 ║  per second video signal.  PC monitor designers assume that you'll want    ║
 ║  90 or so pixels per inch resolution on any monitor, so a bigger screen    ║
 ║  means more pixels.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      The typical 21" monitor has to support resolutions as high as         ║
 ║  1,600x1,280 pixels, which boosts the horizontal scanning frequency up to  ║
 ║  around 90kHz.  The markets that need a monitor like that, CAD,            ║
 ║  publishing, and professional graphics, are very small compared to the PC  ║
 ║  market in general, it isn't so surprising that 21" monitors sell for      ║
 ║  close to $2,000.                                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      But there are some signs that we might be seeing large monitors in    ║
 ║  the future that aren't targeted toward such narrow markets.  Toshiba      ║
 ║  offers a 20" television that also functions as a SVGA monitor for around  ║
 ║  $700.  Its maximum resolution of 640x480 pixels isn't much of a problem   ║
 ║  for game playing, but it could be limiting for general use.  Also,        ║
 ║  Gateway 2000 has announced it plans to offer a VCR-sized system called    ║
 ║  Destination, complete with a 31" monitor and a built-in TV tuner.         ║
 ║  Expect to pay about $4,000 late this fall.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      And then there's High Definition Telivision.  The Digital HDTV Grand  ║
 ║  Alliance proposal, recommended by the FCC's Advisory Committee on         ║
 ║  Advanced Television Service last November, still awaits final approval    ║
 ║  by the FCC.  But the system's highest resolution is 1920x1080, with a     ║
 ║  cinematic 16:9 width to height ratio instead of the now standard 4:3.     ║
 ║  If HDTV catches on, we'll all have television sets that put most current  ║
 ║  PC video monitors to shame.  By the most optimistic estimates, HDTV       ║
 ║  should really take off sometime early in the next century.  Maybe then    ║
 ║  I'll be able to put this old monitor out to pasture.                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  It's all up to the groups, this is where quantity DOES count, but you     ║
 ║  will soon enough find that quality by far outweighs quantity.  Let's      ║
 ║  review the criteria I'll be using for judging releases.  The following    ║
 ║  is the scoring basis I'll be using :                                      ║

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 ║      About the disk size/number of disks limit, here are my feelings.  It  ║
 ║  is getting to where the 40 disk limit is hard to match.  Game sizes keep  ║
 ║  growing, as do utils sizes, we can't keep the limit so low.  It would be  ║
 ║  like saying my foot is growing, but I can only buy size 10 shoes.  There  ║
 ║  are many utils coming out now that are very large, especially some of     ║
 ║  the operating systems, you don't want only part of an operating system,   ║
 ║  you want the whole thing.  I think the size of disks should stay small    ║
 ║  enough to fit on 1 normal 1.44 meg floppy.  There should be a group of    ║
 ║  one or 2 leaders from each games and utils group, that have a monthly     ║
 ║  meeting on IRC, for each of their type of releases.  They could discuss   ║
 ║  things like this, I personally think the current limit for games should   ║
 ║  be 50, and utils 60.                                                      ║

 ║      50 disks for a game is fine, if the game is worth it, but when they   ║
 ║  go higher it better be a GOOD game.  But I think that this 1.4 meg stuff  ║
 ║  is shit.  There is really no point to it anymore, no one uses disks.      ║

 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I'm sure you have probably read about this topic in a computer game   ║
 ║  magazine, but I'm telling you straight out, from warez kid, to warez      ║
 ║  kid.  Many Groups like to release the games that are big, and are over    ║
 ║  at least 30 megs.  That is how it seems to be to me.  I myself solely     ║
 ║  judge a game on how long I play it, which sooner or later leads to        ║
 ║  "gameplay."  If companies such as Origin keep releasing such big games,   ║
 ║  like Wing Commander 4 (6 cd's), who is going to want to rip that, and     ║
 ║  release that?  Exactly, no one.  My point is, I understand it is not the  ║
 ║  releasing groups faults releasing big games, like Vikings, and Front      ║
 ║  Page Sports Baseball 96 by Razor 1911.  I like to courier warez, for DSC  ║
 ║  (Dark Side Couriers) and for PTA (Power Trading Arsenal) but aside from   ║
 ║  all the couriering, I also like to play the games.  I don't think I am    ║
 ║  the only one either.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      As a tip for releasing groups, look for games that you can play,      ║
 ║  instead of watching, because most of the big games are packed with        ║
 ║  boring, full motion video.  Don't get me wrong, full motion video was     ║
 ║  awesome, when it first came out.  But now that FMV is overplayed, and is  ║
 ║  found in most games, it is more boring than exciting.  Also, I have seen  ║
 ║  a couple games where FMV has been perfectly filled in, to occupy ONE cd,  ║
 ║  and an occasional TWO cds, but when you get to 4,5, and 6 cds, what the   ║
 ║  hell?  To be totally honest with you, I had more fun playing the game     ║
 ║  packed in the RCN E-Mags, than I did playing Wing Commander III.  If      ║
 ║  more games were released that you could play, more people would play      ║
 ║  them.                                                                     ║

 ║      I agree somewhat, BUT, I have played some larger games that I think   ║
 ║  were ripped perfect.  A good case is Afterlife by Lucas Arts, the game    ║
 ║  was 40 disks which made most people avoid it, BUT, I leeched it and it    ║
 ║  was WELL worth the time, the only thing really ripped was the scenarios.  ║
 ║  I asked Prestige to release them seperate, but of course I have leeched   ║
 ║  huge shit that sucked.  As for FMV, most of it BLOWS!  Rip that shit      ║

 ║      In concern to the file size of many programs, I feel that it is a     ║

 ║  noticed if I put a file online that is bigger than 12 disks, it rarely    ║
 ║  gets downloaded unless the hype is so good for instance like Duke Nukem.  ║
 ║  Why would someone waste their time downloading something for maybe 3 to   ║
 ║  4 days and then have it needing a fix or not working all together.        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Most people that I deal with on my system don't even have the         ║
 ║  greatest computers with hard drives of like 800 megs.  Why are they       ║
 ║  going to want something taking up like 200 megs???  I think it is good    ║
 ║  to make some CD-rips but do them in parts like some groups are beginning  ║
 ║  to do like make it a mininum CD-rip then for all those who have the time  ║
 ║  and space make a sound addon then a graphics addon so that everyone who   ║
 ║  wants to enjoy the game can have a chance to.                             ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      For instance, people on my BBS want a Need for Speed SE minimum       ║
 ║  CD-Rip because 56 disks is just way too many to download.  I think        ║
 ║  bigger releases are good though for Internet traders with shells because  ║
 ║  they have the ability to grab the files a lot quicker.                    ║

 ║      There has been a lot of crap said about IRC operators in RCN lately,  ║
 ║  and a lot more said about them in channel #RCN.  I'd like to begin by     ║
 ║  saying that IRC ops are NOT our enemies.  Sure, we've all ran into them,  ║
 ║  and we've all sworn revenge at one point or another, but if you know how  ║
 ║  to deal with them, it isn't that big of a deal.  Let me offer a few       ║
 ║  suggestions.                                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      IRC ops do NOT take out personal vendettas.  When they /kill you,     ║
 ║  they are doing their job.  Only once was I mistakenly /killed and not     ║
 ║  apologized too.  They have a rather difficult job to do.  You've got to   ║
 ║  remember that not everyone uses mass cloning to flood people and stuff.   ║
 ║  People don't know anything about it, and those people shouldn't have to   ║
 ║  put up with it.  IRC ops are trying to keep IRC up and running for        ║
 ║  beginners.  Back in the day EfNet was created, it was just that.          ║
 ║  However with the adding of more servers and the attraction IRC had too    ║
 ║  good coders/hackers, people found ways to take advantages of bugs in      ║
 ║  servers.                                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      DO NOT RUN CLONES.  It's that freaking simple.  If you are so lame    ║
 ║  you can't take out a channel with a time stamp collider, foreign          ║
 ║  servers, or some ICMP flooding, then don't bother coming in to harass     ║
 ║  people with your clones.  There are so many people who think crap like    ║
 ║  textbox and smoke are the coolest things around, but think about it, if   ║
 ║  they were, why would they be freely distributed?                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Understand that IRC ops are just doing their job.  If they /kill      ║
 ║  you, apologize, show you don't hold it against them.  They don't sit      ║
 ║  there /kill'ing people going "hehehHEEHEHEhehehehheh yeah cool cool die   ║
 ║  die heehehaehHEHEHE."  No, they are simply trying to keep EfNet free of   ║
 ║  lamers.  Most of them don't give a crap about it, just wait until they    ║
 ║  go away and do it again.                                                  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      I have made a LOT of IRC op friends.  They are pretty damn fun to     ║
 ║  talk to, if you just give them a chance.  They've helped/saved my ass on  ║
 ║  more than one occasion.  I know for a fact almost every major IRC op      ║
 ║  knows I run a crapload of bots, but they don't go around k-lining me      ║
 ║  because it isn't a big deal.  And I'm nice about it.  I've been told      ║
 ║  before by various IRC ops that another IRC op or them doesn't like my     ║
 ║  bot on their server.  So I take it off, no big deal at all.  Don't argue  ║
 ║  with individuals.  It's their machine, they can do whatever they want.    ║
 ║  One time, an oper from epix.net said I was "famous."  Heh, I did a        ║
 ║  little digging and found out I have been talked about sometimes.  The     ║
 ║  point is this, we're all bad ass IRC hackers, yeah, we know.              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Try and remember, just for a second, back to your first time on IRC.  ║
 ║  Yeah, you're sitting there on your Netcom shell account, loaded ircII     ║
 ║  and wondering how the HELL you talk to people.  After spending about 2    ║
 ║  hours in the help files for ircII you figure it's time to type            ║
 ║  /channelsor whatever it was and join the first thing that caught your     ║
 ║  eye.  So you join up#!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!3yearoldsexpicswithrblchickn  ║
 ║  and expect to find some rather interesting discussion, only instead to    ║
 ║  find the channel taken over and you suddenly quit irc with "Excess        ║
 ║  Flood."  Well, you would have had NO idea how to defend yourself.  This   ║
 ║  is what IRC ops are for, to help the new guys.  Everytime an IRC op       ║
 ║  steps in to make me give back a channel I've taken over, he always says   ║
 ║  "Just let things cool down and take it back later tonight, I got a job    ║
 ║  to do here."  Or something like that.  And don't go knocking Moogle,      ║
 ║  he's killed my bots a couple times, but he saved #Sailormoon twice last   ║
 ║  week.                                                                     ║

 ║      The point I'm trying to make here guys, is show a little              ║
 ║  understanding and cooperation.  You might make a rather powerful friend.  ║
 ║  And even if you don't, you always got someone who won't hesitate to       ║
 ║  answer a question or help you out when you are having problems.  It's     ║
 ║  what they are for, they aren't all fascist dictators, nor are they all    ║
 ║  Communists, so don't sweat it.  The last thing to remember is, NEVER      ║
 ║  flood an IRC op.  If you're that stupid, you deserve whatever you get.    ║

 ║  <Aquarius> (January 21 to February 19) : Your consideration of a          ║
 ║             leadership position in a prominent warez group would benefit   ║
 ║             from a second opinion, so try to keep an open mind.  A         ║
 ║             long-term decision made later in the week will reap rewards    ║

 ║  <Pisces> (February 20 to March 20) : A romantic, creative or group        ║
 ║           objective is well within your grasp as long as you have the      ║
 ║           courage and commitment to pursue it.  The Sun and Mercury in     ║
 ║           your fellow water sign of Cancer are focusing on the sunny side  ║
 ║           of life.  This is your week, enjoy it!                           ║

 ║  <Aries> (March 21 to April 20) : Friendly persuasion will serve you       ║
 ║          better than strongarm tactics this week.  Pay close attention to  ║
 ║          particulars that hang with you in group IRC channels, and avoid   ║
 ║          being excessively ambitious.  Thursday's Sun-Mercury liaison      ║
 ║          will help you resolve a conflict you may have with some friends   ║
 ║          in a group IRC channel, but you must first be willing to let      ║
 ║          others have their say.                                            ║

 ║  <Taurus> (April 21 to May 21) : An offer or opportunity may sound better  ║
 ║           than it really is, but it is still worth exploring.  With        ║
 ║           Mercury and Jupiter united early in the week, you may be         ║
 ║           tempted to state your terms a little too forcefully.  Listen to  ║
 ║           those who know more than you do.                                 ║

 ║  <Gemini> (May 22 to June 21) : With your ruler Mercury linked to both     ║
 ║           Jupiter and the Sun, you can put the finishing touches on        ║
 ║           relationships as long as you recognize the risks involved.       ║
 ║           Don't allow yourself to be sidetracked by people who have more   ║
 ║           time but less good sense than you.                               ║

 ║  <Cancer> (June 22 to July 23) : Positive planetary activity in the        ║
 ║           partnership angel of your solar chart will enhance an existing   ║
 ║           relationship or pave the way for a new one.  Plans made toward   ║
 ║           the end of the week should reach fruition around the Full Moon   ║
 ║           on the 30th.                                                     ║

 ║  <Leo> (July 24 to August 23) : You must determine whether to follow your  ║
 ║        gut feelings or take the logical approach regarding admission to a  ║
 ║        group this week.  Stick with your instincts and you won't go far    ║
 ║        wrong.  The Sun, your ruler, aligned with Mercury on Thursday will  ║
 ║        bring good advice from an unexpected direction.                     ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Virgo> (August 24 to September 23) : Money or worries about a position   ║
 ║          in a prominent warez group may be causing you to neglect other    ║
 ║          responsibilities, but with your ruler Mercury positively linked   ║
 ║          to Jupiter and the Sun this week, you are wonderfully placed to   ║
 ║          decide how best to satisfy your personal needs.  Don't be afraid  ║
 ║          to spend time and money on yourself.  You deserve it!             ║

 ║  <Libra> (September 24 to October 23 ) : No matter how disruptive the      ║
 ║          events of the past 12 months have been, your life now appears to  ║
 ║          be on an upward curve.  In fact, this week's stimulating          ║
 ║          celestial influences should make you realize just how close you   ║
 ║          are to reaching a certain goal.  Just be careful not to overlook  ║
 ║          an important detail.                                              ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Scorpio> (October 24 to November 22) : Something that seems like a       ║
 ║            brilliant scheme may turn out to be no more than a routine      ║
 ║            idea when inventive Mercury joins forces with optimistic        ║
 ║            Jupiter early in the week.  Go ahead by all means, but be sure  ║
 ║            you appreciate the plan's true nature before committing to it.  ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Sagittarius> (November 23 to December 21) : Matters of group status and  ║
 ║                affiliation are once again on the agenda, but now it        ║
 ║                appears that you have a very real shot at improving your    ║
 ║                circumstances.  Your ruler, Jupiter, linked to Mercury,     ║
 ║                may provide you with a sensible solution as long as there   ║
 ║                are not too many strings attached.                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Capricorn> (December 22 to January 20) : Someone close is about to put   ║
 ║              forward a proposal or suggestion that could have lasting      ║
 ║              implications.  Knowing exactly what you want from the         ║
 ║              relationship will offer the best chance of achieving it.      ║
 ║              Don't be influenced by other's advice, your own judgment is   ║
 ║              sound.                                                        ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║      First off, you need to know that phone phreaking is ILLEGAL, and you  ║
 ║  can get in trouble for it.  But let's not worry about that yet.  For the  ║
 ║  beginner phreaker, I would suggest beige-boxing.  Beige-boxing let's you  ║
 ║  use somebody elses' phone line to make calls.  Calls that THEY have to    ║
 ║  pay for.  Here is what you are going to need :                            ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      1.) A regular old touch-tone phone                                    ║
 ║      2.) A regular phone cord                                              ║
 ║      3.) Wire strippers                                                    ║
 ║      4.) 2 alligator clips                                                 ║
 ║      5.) Screwdriver                                                       ║
 ║      6.) Electrical tape                                                   ║
 ║      7.) Some 900 numbers to have fun with                                 ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      All right, so you have all this stuff and now you need to know what   ║
 ║  to do with it.  First off, you will need to cut one end of your phone     ║
 ║  cord off.  Now strip the outside covering off about 4-5 inches.  You      ║
 ║  should see a red, green, yellow and a black wire.  You will not be        ║
 ║  needing the yellow or the black one, so you can either cut them both off  ║
 ║  or leave them there.  Now you need to strip the covering off the red and  ║
 ║  the green wires.  This normally can't be done with regular                ║
 ║  wire-strippers, so I just use a knife.                                    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      After you have the RED and the GREEN wires stripped, you need to      ║
 ║  attach the green one to a green alligator clip (preferrably) and the red  ║
 ║  one to a red alligator clip.  It makes it a lot easier to match the wire  ║
 ║  colors to the color of the alligator clips (the color thing isn't         ║
 ║  important now, but it will be after you become more advanced.  Now you    ║
 ║  need to cover up this connection between the alligator clips and the      ║
 ║  wires by wrapping it with electrical tape.                                ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Now, you are ready to find a house or a phone box to phreak.  It is   ║
 ║  a LOT easier and safer beige-boxing off somebody elses' house that is to  ║
 ║  beige-box a bell phone box (phone boxes are what you see in front of      ║
 ║  your house, and on the side of the street, etc.).  To find a house to     ║
 ║  phreak, you will need to take a look around your neighborhood.  It is     ║
 ║  safest to do it on some old ladies' house who lives close to you.  And    ║
 ║  only do this at night, after 11 pm is always good.  The house should be   ║
 ║  somewhat close to your house, because you don't want to have to walk      ║
 ║  through a big neighborhood late at night, especially if you are under     ║
 ║  18, because the cops will stop you and ask you what you are doing, and    ║
 ║  ask you what's in your back pack.  It would really suck to have to open   ║
 ║  your bag and pull out a beige-box for the cop.  And they get pissed and   ║
 ║  tell you to go home.                                                      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      Once you have found a house, be aware of your surroundings.  Be sure  ║
 ║  there are not people, feds, and pac-bell workers around.  Now you will    ║
 ║  need to go to the side of the house, where the utilities are.  The        ║
 ║  utilities consist of the fuse box, television, and TELEPHONE!.  You       ║
 ║  should see two panels, one labeled "television", and one labeled          ║
 ║  "telephone" with a little bell logo on it.  As I hope you already have    ║
 ║  figured out, we will be using the one that says "telephone."  Using a     ║
 ║  flathead screwdriver, take off the panel, and you should see a grey       ║
 ║  rubber covering.  Take the rubber covering off, and you will see a small  ║
 ║  black box with 4 screws sticking out or you might see 4 bolts sticking    ║
 ║  out.  Now take your alligator clips and clip them both onto 2 of the 4    ║
 ║  screws.  Now plug the phone cord into the phone, pick up the phone, and   ║
 ║  you should now have a dial tone!                                          ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      If you do not have a dial tone, you may not have connected the phone  ║
 ║  cord wires to the alligator clips correctly, or you may need to           ║
 ║  re-adjust the alligator clips onto the screw, or try the other 2 screws.  ║
 ║  You can now call wherever you want and it doesn't cost you a penny.  To   ║
 ║  find out the number that you are calling from, call 1-800-MY-ANI-IS.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║      When you are done, make SURE that you cover up your tracks, so        ║
 ║  suspision of your presence does not arouse.  I ususally crank-call        ║
 ║  people in New York (I am in California by the way) and fuck with them.    ║
 ║  Another cool thing to do is call up some 900 numbers.  Boy those numbers  ║
 ║  really get expensive.  I've seen $7.50 per MINUTE.  But who gives a       ║
 ║  fuck, you don't have to pay for it.  Harrassing the operator is also      ║
 ║  fun.  Have fun my fellow phreaks.                                         ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║              not gay.  I don't even like being in channels like this.      ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Entropy> I heard rumors that you were desperate for a relationship.  I   ║
 ║            heard you weren't having much success with girls, so may be     ║
 ║            you should give up on the opposite sex and start looking for    ║
 ║            relationships with gay men like me.                             ║

 ║              rather fuck a cow than fuck a man.                            ║

 ║  <RblChickn> Yea, that's right, I'd rather fuck a cow like Winterhauk      ║
 ║              than you.                                                     ║

 ║  <Entropy> Hey, I'm only doing this to you as favor.  I thought you'd be   ║
 ║            lonely.  My friend Incarnate told me that you're Asian, and I   ║
 ║            dig little Asian boys.  They're so fun to play with.  :)        ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <RblChickn> Yes, I'm Asian, but I'm not a little boy, and I'm not a toy   ║
 ║              for you to play with.  Why the hell do you like little Asian  ║
 ║              boys anyway?                                                  ║

 ║  <Entropy> I gather great pleasure from fucking little boys, especially    ║
 ║            Asian ones.  Little Asian boys have tight anuses, it's more     ║
 ║            fun when it's nice and tight.  You should try it.  :)           ║
 ║                                                                            ║

 ║  <RblChickn> Dam, I never knew you were gay.  I used to respect you.  You  ║
 ║              used to be smart, and you used to be straight.  How did all   ║
 ║              this happen?  Who did this to you?  Who made you turn gay?    ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <Entropy> Nobody made me gay.  And don't call me gay, I'd rather call     ║
 ║            myself a chick with a dick.  But there's no use hiding any      ║
 ║            longer, I've been gay all my life.  I've just been living a     ║
 ║            lie, and if you ever hear me say that I'm not gay, then it's    ║
 ║            only because I'm in a state of denial.  When I'm telling the    ║
 ║            truth, I can easily come out and tell people that I like being  ║
 ║            fruity.  I'm a faggot, and I like anuses.                       ║
 ║                                                                            ║
 ║  <RblChickn> You've been gay all your life and you've just been hiding     ║
 ║              it?  I pity you then.  Some of us are just more fortunate     ║
 ║              than others, I have little drive to go out and cruise for     ║
 ║              chicks, but you've just been born with some kind of penis     ║
 ║              defect or something.  None of us were born perfect, but       ║
 ║              you... you're a freak of nature.                              ║

 ║  <Entropy> I guess so.  Well, my friend Incarnate, he's gay too.  He was   ║
 ║            the one who taught me how to fuck anuses.  I guess I started    ║
 ║            hanging around Incarnate too much.  Some of Incarnate must      ║
 ║            have rubbed off on me, or maybe he just rubbed me too hard one  ║
 ║            night or something.                                             ║

 ║  Riot, go take that lame group NFS (Need for Speed) and shove it up your   ║
 ║  ass.  That so called ripped install.exe was used by a group!  So go       ║

 ║      As we know, the world has enough nuclear missles to blow up the       ║

 ║      The new update to the Reality Check Network World Wide Web Site,      ║
 ║  http://www.rcn.org/, adds many new features :                             ║

 ║      ■ Speed Optimization : RCN.org is now speed optimized, which means    ║
 ║        you spend less time waiting and more time browsing.                 ║

 ║      ■ Better Back Issue Access : It's now quick and easy to scan through  ║
 ║        RCN's back issues, each one has its full description online, to     ║
 ║        make searching for the desired issue that much easier.              ║

 ║      ■ Better Interface : v2.0 brings an end to the confusing              ║
 ║        conglomeration of pages that previously had existed.  Now speed     ║
 ║        through the icon driven interface to scan back issues of RCN and    ║
 ║        other emags, send comments, read credits, and check out             ║

 ║      ■ Text or JAVA Version : Whatever browser you use can now access the  ║
 ║        RCN.org pages.  Before only Netscape was allowed, but now LYNX and  ║
 ║        other text base users can now access the pages.                     ║

 ║      ■ New Look Graphics : The new graphics style are a nice change of     ║
 ║        pace from the hard-edged style of before.                           ║
