 HODD'S INTERVIEWS       
 ~~~~~~~~~
 This is a new section Hodd from PHX will be interviewing people about
 their contributions in the scene.

 Cracking groups come and go, but a group that seems to be here for the long haul
 is ORiON.  Pumping out releases on almost a daily basis, I thought it would
 be cool to see how they operate.  I spoke with Wallace and found out the details
 of how he operates such a consist process.

 (hodd) Let's start off by a brief pre-cursor to your ORiON days....how did you
 begin in this thing we call the scene?

 (Wallace`) Well, I didn't really start to get into the scene until around early 96.
 I entered it as a siteop at the time, and was really moving around in what i now
 know was  very unknown groups.  I guess the moment when I really was introduced to
 the  scene as I know it today, was when a guy name MetallicX came to me and offered
 to get my site to be a top one it was called TE, and with that site i was introduced
 to many great groups at the time PDM, TRPS, etc.. From that point on, I still siteop
 US sites... currently ** and ***.  While I was siteop, i started to get curious about
 how the groups got releases out and such and decided to pursue into that in TRPS. 
 In that group (during its prime over year ago) i learned the inner workings of the 
 scene and after that started to die down.. i decided I wanted to see the games and
 cracking part of the scene thats when I jumped into Class and ORiON. A fellow old 
 member of TRPS named Capslock is definitely the guy the brought me into ORiON at the
 time he described it as a building time for the group.  So that covers most of my
 history up till joining ORiON, most of details I have forgot :)

 (hodd) quite a story...heh...ORiON tends to release on an almost daily basis, how do
 you it? Maybe a better question is how do you keep up? :)

 (Wallace`) Well, i think the key to that is how organized and automated we have made
 everything in the  group, along with the fact that there is never a shortage of brand
 new supplies.  Most of time, its very fun for the crackers and others to hang out and
 chat.. along with getting work done so it makes it very easy for us to get releases 
 out while relaxing and chatting. Btw, currently I and [B|aZe] lead ORiON, I feel it 
 is important to mention him since he is also a very important part in running the group.

 (hodd) Would you say that other groups have this kind of relaxed attitude, or do you 
 think the majority just tries to get the meggage?

 (Wallace`) Well, yeah I think there probably is. However, in all my years in the
 scene and experiences with groups as siteop.. I have noticed it to be pretty rare.

 (hodd) Most Utils/Cracking groups have a particular type of software they focus on.
 What's ORiON's mandate?

 (Wallace`) heh :) we have none, but we are cracking group. We don't want to limit
 ourselves to a certain field.  Sure , it would be great to completely own one 
 thing.. but i think that would take away from our crackers. It would probably get
 boring for them.. and they wouldn't see so many different kinds of protections 
 to learn and get better from.

 (hodd) What role do you personally play in the group?
 Do you have a hands on approach?

 (Wallace`) Well, I am a leader in ORiON ([B|aZe] is the other one), and i most
 definitely have a hands  on approach.  If you come into the group, you'll see 
 me working just as hard (if not more) than anyone. I'll be packing releases 
 sometimes, duping our supplies, etc... Just because I am leader shouldn't mean 
 i sit back and give orders. That is just stupid in my opinion. If one is 
 capable of leading he should also show those he leads that he will work just 
 as hard as them on the small (sometimes boring) stuff.

 (hodd) I'm sure alot of courier leaders would agree with you there....has ORiON
 ever had a merger with another group?

 (Wallace`) Well, a very long time ago. even before i entered ORiON there was a 
 failed merger with a group called magnum. However, I am happy to say we have 
 lately had a very successful one at the beginning of this month. All KAC members
 have merged into ORiON, and I must say it is great to have more talented  
 crackers and people around to help.

 (hodd) What would you say is ORiON's greatest success?

 (Wallace`) Wow, hard question....I would have to say what I am most proud of is
 the success of our teamwork and the attitude we all have towards each other. 
 It really makes the group fun to be in. However, I am also proud of the week 
 we got 66 releases out. But I see that record falling soon since we have been 
 getting 40+ a week in 2000 :)

 (hodd) the 66 week rocked :)....any release that you cracked that made 
 you go "Hell Ya!"?

 (Wallace`) Well, first thing that comes to mind is the Secure CRT 3 release that
 one of our oldest cracker Da_DiABLO did. SCRT was eagerly awaited to get out of
 beta for that version since it took so long. So that felt pretty good.

 (hodd) yah for sure since 85% of traders need it :)...It seems these days that 
 group hopping seems to be a norm, in the courier scene at least, does ORiON 
 have this problem?

 (Wallace`) No, we are fortunate to not have this problem at all. Since I have 
 been leader I think we have only had 1 person leave our group for another I 
 believe most of this is due to the attitude of everyone in the group. Everyone 
 has fun.  However, we have had many of our crackers approached by other groups.. 
 sometimes repeatedly. It is funny.. cause i have them keep lists of the groups 
 and how many times they ask them, just so we can look back and laugh.

 (hodd) Does or has ORiON recruit using this method?

 (Wallace`) No, we never have. I believe anyone who has come to our group directly
 from another already knew someone in the group.  So most of our new people, are 
 either not in groups.. or joining cause they have a friend or know someone in 
 ORiON that they have talked with.

 (hodd) With sooooo many cracking groups out there, is there competition for 
 releases? and if so does arguments start?

 (Wallace`) Definitely! There are many cracking groups out their competing every
 day on releases. Unfortunately I have seen arguments come out of this competition
 before between groups. However, I am glad to say that ORiON does not engage in
 public slandering or arguments with other groups. We wont sink down to that 
 immaturity and try to say bad things about others.

 (hodd) Ok enough about the scene....What does Wallace do when he's not leading
 in ORiON?

 (Wallace`) Well, when im not handling all the day to day stuff in ORiON, I just
 try to have fun and talk with everyone in various channels. But recently I been
 spending a lot of time on a little project that everyone will be seeing 
 shortly :) I and TecH have been putting together what everyone will know as MCR.
 Monthly Cracking Report. Until now.. no one has consistently handled information
 about the cracking scene well. This Monthly report will contain every cracking 
 group with more than 10 releases entire list for the month. And have ranking for
 most releases, most keygens, and most cracks. We are also going to have a little
 chat with a different cracker each month :)

 (hodd) not unless I get to them first :).....welp that wraps it up, thanks for
 your time and telling the readers a little bit about the scenes best kept secret :)

 (Wallace`) Sure thing. Greetz to everyone i know :)


 Well there you have it...let me know what you guys think of this.  And if you think your
 story is worth telling, get in touch with me.

DOMINANCE ;)

AMN (Amnesia): IDLE

Criminal (CRM): Off of top 10, don't know what is up with these gusy
 (1/10)

Dark Side Couriers (DSC): On top 10! Is it true you guys got banned
on some sites? Wierd. Dunno what you did. Shouts out to my main man
Shamu for getting #33. (04/10)

iNTENSiTY (iNT): IDLE (00/10)

Moonshine (MSN):  Back up to #5. As i have said b4 these guys have the
potential to be in top 3. Need to start trading some more and they will
be there cause they have the talent. Boring is back at #9, lets hope he
doesn't get too big of a head. Good week overall for MSN (7/10)

MOTiV8 (M8):  Thank god, back on top 10. Infact even #7  Neo is trading
good for them. (06/10)

Phase (PHS):  Slipped a bit this week, but still doing good. No couiers
in top 10 again though :/ (05/10)

Rise In Superior Couriering (RiSC): Seem to be focusing on euro! Still
should be higher in the rankings but it seems they are slipping. Duff
did good this week though. #3 :/ (06/10)

Request to Send (RTS):  WHOAAOAOOA! #2 this week, Dmon did good for them
this week. How many groups has he been in? and Dvader!!!! 2 RTS in top 10.
At the beginning of the week things might have been looking bad for them, 
but now all things are restored and are in a position to challenge WLW for
#1. Great week for these guys. And K1ng didn't evey courry!!!! (10/10)

Vice (Vice):  #4 seem to be getting consistant. I like what i see from this
group. Citizen is trading US and euro? He owns! Light is also pumping in 
some nice megs.  (08/10)

Volition (VLN): IDLE (NA/10)

We Love Warez (WLW):  #1 again! whats new? Punkster put up his regular #1
courier numbers and C4g3 got in on the act too placing #2!!!! Can we say
Dominant? I don't see them slowing down anytime soon! (10/10)

XCrypt (XC?): First time i am EVER reviewing this group, doing great work. 
I remember when i was in XCrypt running a lame WarFTPd site, damn they have 
come along way since then. Very Impressive guys. (09/10)

This weeks nicest guy award goes to: Punkster

 EDITOR'S NOTES 
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  This will be an issue in the history books of USCR.  As we approach our 1
 year aniversary we've decided to change things around a 'lil.  Prozax is off
 to pursue his own creation EUCR, so in his place, we bring the very talented
 Brianna. *Cheer*.  As most of you know, Brianna is a very skilled candidate
 for the job and I wish you all enjoy her editorialship.  I, myself, have
 been very idle as of late but will continue to show up on saturday nights to
 check you guys out :)  I've had a lot of fun with the mag, Prozax has had a
 lot of fun with the mag, and now it's time to pass the torch.

 She's all yours bri.

        Well this is my first week so be gentle with me. I took this job on for 
 a few reasons but I would say the main reason is because couriers really love
 to see how they ranked and I wanted to be part of that fair process.

        The mag is nearly the same this week but will undergo a few changes in coming
 weeks as I find my feet. Nothing drastic,  this week I have included new section 
 Hodd's Scene Interviews.. and welcome Wallace and Hodd as staff..
