Allow me to introduce myself. I was featured in the documentary t-file "The History of Real K-K00L DOODS" (by The Edge) as a troubled adolescent with some real serious problems. However, with a lot of self- induced shock therapy I've mended my ways. There's nothing like having your every character flaw pointed out in excruciating detail to make you step back and say "Eggbert, you need a change." Fortunately, those kind, wonderful folks in cDc SAVED MY LIFE! They took me under their wing and taught me that with a lot of hard work and cash donations to their group, I can be a meaningful person! They're also teaching me how to be elite! Once a week they give me a "s00per sekrut mission" which usually involves the acquisition of hi-tech equipment to further their wonderful plans they have for the future of us all. They can't tell me these plans, you understand, as I am but a cDc/WorkerDrone in the K-K0W F0RCE! and do not need such information. When I succeed in returning back to my base with my job completed they lavish me with praise and Hostess Fruit Pies like no mere natural parent can! When I fail (c0w forbid!), they beat me severely and make me wear women's evening gowns. I hate the humiliation. But I deserve it because it's the only way I will learn to be elite. Daddy? Stop it. I love you too, cDc. Please don't hit me again. Twinkie? They're having me do a suicide run on a central office next week so I may not be able to call back. Where's Mommy? Another part of my work for cDc is programming this new operating system called BS/2. Thank you sir, may I have another? I feel so groggy, and it's getting hard to see. They haven't fed me in a few days. I am K-K0W F0RCE! and I can handle it! I'll kill them all. Daddy? I love cDc with all my heart. What was I saying? The horror... oh my. I'm going to put the info file for BS/2 next in my message so you can see how elite I'm becoming and be proud of me too. Here it is: ------------ cDc introduces the most VIOLENT operating system ever! Welcome to a new era. Welcome to the next generation in operating systems: BS/2 You're in a hurry, so you want PCs to respond faster. You do many things at once and wish your PCs could too. You want software that's more powerful, but also easier to use. You'd like more color. You're eager for your systems to communicate with other systems. You want improved reliability. And you want all this without obsoleting your investment in equipment, software and training. Well TOO BAD! STOP WHINING! cDc brings you B0VINE SYSTEM/2, the fastest and most gut-wrenchingly powerful operating system ever! EUNUCHS, PMS, Mac System x, AmigaDOS, Windoze NT, etc... don't even think about it! Give it up and GO HOME! We scoff! HA! All other operating systems cower and DELETE THEMSELVES due to their incredible relative lameness! Check it out! Real multitasking! Hundreds... even thousands of processes all running simultaneously in a non-stop BATTLE to the DEATH! The eventual winner burns itself into an EPROM and REIGNS FOREVER!! Over 500,000 levels of HIERARCHAL FILESYSTEM to be explored, complete with hundreds of SECRET INVISIBLE FILES!! An astounding 3-D GUI! Windows HURTLE open at BLINDING speeds to display cracked glass, piles of oozing gore, and UGLY HAGS who glare at users with the EVIL EYE! The GUI also features a mouse pointer shaped like a BLOODY KNIFE! The scroll bars are covered with MYSTICAL RUNES! Every file has TEN ICONS... but NINE of them are DEADLY TRAPS!! AUTOMATIC DISEASE SIMULATION! Every week, BS/2 will create a new VIRUS to PLAGUE your valuable files! Each new virus is MORE POWERFUL than the last! Don't slack off... with BS/2, DOOM lurks around EVERY CORNER! Virtual reality? OLD NEWS! BS/2 creates REAL reality with HIGH-SPEED SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES that ATTACK and DEVOUR the very MIND of the user! The world of BS/2 will become your world too... AND YOU'LL LIKE IT! ------------ Well, do you like it? Does it make you happy? It makes me very very happy. But only if cDc is happy!! I want to be good. Would you like me to upload the beta version? Please?! Sincerely, Eggbert P.S. What state am I in? What year is it?

It's common knowledge that whenever you get two or more CS grad students together, the conversation will inevitably drift to the same topic: automatic weapons. Lately, we've noticed that whenever we attend a CS party, picnic, or bull session, we always hear the same questions and discussions, usually from the younger grad students: "I want to mount an M60 in front of the sun roof of my Tercel, but the mounting bracket wasn't drilled for import cars. How did Josh Bloch do his?" "Some of my friends at the MIT AI Lab don't like M203's because the grenade launcher adds too much weight, but I wouldn't have gotten out of IJCAI-85 in one piece if it hadn't been for those 40mm flechette rounds. What do you think?" "Do you have to be a god-damned tenured professor to get teflon rounds at this place?" "Does the 'reasonable person principle' cover hosing down a member of the Soar project after he's used the phrase 'cognitively plausible' for the fifteenth time in a 20 minute conference talk?" "Where *did* Prof. Vrsalovic get that Kalashnikov AK-47?" "I used to use Dri-Slide to lube my M16. How come my advisor says Dri-Slide is for momma's boys and Stanford profs?" "Does the way Jon Webb keeps flicking the safety of his Mac-10 on and off at thesis defenses make you nervous, too?" In short, there is a lot of concern in this department for the proper care, handling and etiquette of automatic weapons. So as a service to the department, we are starting a two week daily series on "The Care and Handling of Your M16A1." Every day for the next two weeks, we will post on the wall outside our office the day's helpful hint on care and maintenance of that good old departmental standby: the M16A1. Our thanks to the US Army, whose training manuals we have shamelessly cribbed for material. We would like to encourage other knowledgeable members of the CS community to share their expertise in a similar fashion. There is a real need for this kind of dialogue in the department. The new students come in here every fall, and are totally unequipped to handle the realities of graduate student life at CMU. Computability theory and lexical scoping are fine things to know about, but they just don't cut the mustard when somebody from the Psych department opens up on you with an Ingram set to full auto. -the friendly automatic weapons enthusiasts of SkyCave1, Olin, Derek, and Allan Date: Tue, 26 May 87 09:55:15 PDT From: jkhBERKELEY.EDU Subject: Supporting one's opinion with sustained fully automatic weapons fire. I had recent occasion to view your Presentation Announcement on care and feeding of automatic weapons during lecture hall. I found it most amusing. I would very much like to see and/or contribute future material. We have similar problems here at Berkeley, though it has been difficult to wean our students away from more the more mundane assortment of Browning Hi-Power's, Beretta 92SBF's and Sig-Sauer P226's. The 9mm clique is pretty strong here, and the young grad students fairly parsimonious. They tend to balk at the idea of spending enough money on ammo to make full auto firefights practical. Lately, they've taken to sniping at each other from the Campanille tower and engaging in loose hit-and-run guerrilla tactics during finals. This is obviously not the American Way and needs to be changed. While I've been able to slowly wean them into more progressive arms (such as the Beretta 93R and an occasional mini-uzi), I still can't seem to get past the supply problem. My questions are: "Do you buy your ammo in bulk, or do appointed individuals do shifts on a progressive reloader?" "Does the school pay for this?" Thank you. Sincerely, J. H. U.C. Berkeley 27-May-87 02:16 My reply to J. H. of UC Berkeley: - - - - ----- J. H. - Thank you for your letter. It was certainly interesting to hear of conditions out on the West Coast. What can I tell you about the situation here at CMU? I'm really glad I came to CMU. The faculty is absolutely first rate, and they all take pride in their weapons skills. We are admittedly a pretty opinionated bunch, which provides for many interesting interchanges within the community. I, for instance, think the long barrel .44 Automag is more of a fashion statement than a weapon, though you won't catch me saying that within earshot of Prof. Fahlman. If you catch my drift. I am very fond of Berkeley. I think that while LA represents the dark, twisted climb-the-water-tower-and-start-shooting-until-the-Marines-settle-it side of California weirdness, Berkeley represents the very best of the pure, innocent-killer side of it all. The first weekend I ever spent in Berkeley was in the summer of 1983. I was sitting down at one of those really delightful cafes you have out there. To my left some old man was drinking cappucino and practicing Chinese calligraphy; down the street some undergraduates were engaged in a running firefight. I was taking it all in, thinking that Berkeleians have remembered something about living well that the rest of America seems to have forgotten; when this kid's stray .223 slug shattered my glass of pomegranate soda. "Crazy undergraduates" I remember chuckling to myself as I put the safety back on my Hi-Power and returned it to its holster. It seems a shame that ammunition is so hard to come by out there, though. We are quite spoiled here at CMU. The departmental attitude towards logistical support really crystallized for me in September of my first year. One of the incoming first-year hot-shots had taken out Prof. Felton with a head shot from 500 yards. We were all really impressed, and I think it was generally agreed that Felton couldn't have asked for a more painless, appropriate end. It was a beautiful, almost poetic way to cap what had been a textbook career of brilliant, original mathematical insights punctuated with outbursts of random, deeply unhinged violence. You've probably heard of Felton (National Academy of Science, IEEE Past President, NRA sustaining member). My advisor told me later that Felton's academic peak had come at that now-infamous 1982 Symposium on Data Encryption, when he presented the plaintext of the encrypted challenge message that Rob Merkin had published earlier that year using his "phonebooth packing" trap-door algorithm. According to my advisor, Felton wordlessly walked up to the chalkboard, wrote down the plaintext, cranked out the multiplies and modulus operations by hand, and wrote down the result, which was obviously identical to the encrypted text Merkin had published in CACM. Then, still without saying a word, he tossed the chalk over his shoulder, spun around, drew and put a 158 grain semi-wadcutter right between Merkin's eyes. As the echoes from the shot reverberated through the room, he stood there, smoke drifting from the muzzle of his .357 Magnum, and uttered the first words of the entire presentation: "Any questions?" There was a moment of stunned silence, then the entire conference hall erupted in wild applause. God, I wish I'd been there. But I digress. At Felton's funeral, our departmental chairman delivered the eulogy. I'll never forget his summation: "Poor Felton. Published and published, yet perished just the same." And that's the attitude that the professors take here. As my advisor said: "The tragedy of Galois is that he could have contributed so much more to mathematics if he'd only spent more time on his marksmanship." The professors at CMU aren't in the business of turning out effete researchers, aimed at the big industrial labs. They are interested in training *real* academicians, suitably prepared for life in the jungle of university-level computer science. And that means time spent practicing our teaching skills and weapons handling *as well as* making fundamental research contributions to the field. -Olin xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [T:--][Xfer:1-New Uploads] :V [File to view] :moneygrp.txt xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx It came to me suddenly one night... in a Taco Bell... the festering remains of a beef burrito sulking in my stomach... the concept for the ULTIMATE box... yes, the $$$$$$ MONEY-GRIP BOX $$$$$$ (transcribed from a Mexican-food induced vision by) ..oooOO Count Zero OOooo.. *cDc* -=RDT ** special thanks to Kingpin, for good karma ** Think about it. Every "box" ever invented was based pretty much on the same premise: how to get SOMETHING for NOTHING. In other words, to RIP OFF. Well, taking this concept to its logical conclusion, we end up with a "box" that simply CREATES MONEY. Yes, CASH wherever you need it. Not JUST for phone calls, but for pizza, cigs, laptops, modems, parking meter fares, YOU NAME IT. YOU DECIDE. The box... PROVIDES. Of course, the electronics required to build this wonder have not been invented yet, but I will try to explain. First off, the box must of course be green. But not just ANY color of green. It must be MONEY GREEN. Maybe even a picture of George Washington on the back. As for buttons, there will be just ONE. A BIG, GOLD button in the center of the box... labeled "CASH." And when pressed, the sound of cash registers will emanate from the unit - "Ka-CHING!" I believe the main circuit should be a rectifier... to rectify the situation in YOUR FAVOR. Many capacitors (the green, electrolytic type) are to be arranged in a pattern on the PCB as such: -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- -|C- Using a typical OP-AMP, you should be able to wire these caps to allow you to amplify your NEED for CASH. Of course, be sure the entire circuit is properly grounded. Otherwise, hundreds of dollars could be sent RUSHING through your body by accident. After combining the rectifier, capacitors, OP-AMP, and proper grounding wires, you must 'baptize' the PCB with human blood. Find a small child, take him out to Chuck-e-Cheeze, and when he's not looking, drain a few pints. Pour the blood over the entire circuit. Take his lunch money while you're at it. Next, you need an IC... but not just ANY IC... you need a chip of the future... a FHSIC chip (Fucking Huge Scale Integrated Circuit). I can't tell you exactly the specs on this baby, since my vision was interrupted at this point by a hearty black-olive-flavored belch, thereby jerking me out of my divine insight. I'll get back to you all on this one. Once you get the FHSIC, just slap it in the box on top of the PCB. It's an INTELLIGENT chip, so ya don't have to worry about pinouts and all that crap. t'll know how to connect itself. As for POWER SUPPLY, there's an ironic twist here. Note the following equations: Time = Money Money = Power Ergo, Time = Power! (Note: all units are metric) Since MONEY is POWER, and TIME is MONEY, well, the box will drain power from the TIME CONTINUUM itself... and the translation of that TIME into MONEY will be seamless. Equations don't lie. Add the solid gold button (SPST switch) and a speaker (for the "Ka-CHING"). Close the box, and secure it all with generous portions of CLEAR EPOXY. Use GOBS. NOW.the fun part... go to a payphone... place a direct call to Guam. When the operator asks for money; close your eyes, push the gold button and chant, "Mo' money, MO' MONEY, Mo' money". Concentrate on your NEED for $$ (coupling to the OP-AMP circuit) and you will suddenly hear the "Ka-CHING" and smell burning flesh. Hovering six inches in front of your face should now be EXACTLY the amount of $$ you need (in the proper denominations, of course) to complete your call. Do this same procedure in ALL circumstances where you need money. Just be sure to be out of sight (the appearance of floating cash tends to freak out ordinary people). The box will ALWAYS generate EXACTLY the amount you need. If you happen to get MORE money than you THINK you need, you were WRONG. The box, since it gets its power from TIME, can predict the future to an extent... and may generate $$ that you will need in the NEAR FUTURE *as well* as the $$ you need immediately. Do not be afraid. The box knows! That's about it. Future plans for foreign currency are bouncing in my head: Germany - "Der MoneyGrip Box" France - "Le MoneyGrip Box" And so on.... Now, BUILD IT... and bask in your glory. Ta-dah. ..oooOO Count Zero OOooo.. *cDc* -=RDT -EOF xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [T:--][Xfer:1-New Uploads] :V [File to view] :cowbeat2.txt xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx _/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/ _/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/ ___ / \ ____ /\/ \___ _____/ \_____ | ______ \_/\/\___ /\_ / _____ \ /\/\/\_____ /\/ / / \__/ \/ | \ \___/ \ / | | _ \ _\|/_ |_____/ _ _|_ / \__ | | / \ \ /\ / /|\ | \ /_\ /\ | \ \ \_\_______ \_/ \/ \/ ___ |______/ \_ \/| | / \/\_ _ /\ /\___/ \ _ /\ /\ _/ \_/ \ /\ /\__/ \ /\/ \/\/\/ \ / \/\_/ \/ \/ \/ \/ \____/ No. 2 COW BEAT is published now and then by cDc communications, PO Box 53011, Lubbock, TX 79453.

He must have to stay up nights just to respond to some of them! Talk about writer's cramp! Thanks for writing in so we could share this with our readers - boy, will they envy you! -- DEAR COW BEAT, Hi! I am 12 years old and my name is Nicole. I love your mag. COW BEAT is so informative! There is one thing I would like to know. What is Lady Carolin going to do now that she's written "Earth Goo?" Will she write more files? Nicole S. Colorado Springs, CO Dear Nicole, Now that she's finished "Earth Goo" and her files have spread far and wide across the planet, Lady Carolin has been doing what any superstar who's just completed such a file would do - rest! Even while resting, Lady Carolin has been thinking about new files and you'll get to read her new material which is due out sometime in 1993! -- DEAR COW BEAT, I have dandruff in my eyebrows. I've tried dandruff shampoos, but they haven't worked. How can I handle this? Jennifer T. San Diego, CA Dear Jennifer, What you're looking for is SANDPAPER. 'nuff said. -- DEAR COW BEAT, I love Tequila Willy so, so, so much! To give you a brief idea of my feelings - I had a special sweatshirt made with Willsie's name on it, I created my own Willsie earrings and every time I make pancakes, they spell out Tequila Willy! My teacher even calls me Willsie! I hope someday I can meet Tequila Willy and the rest of the Willsie family. Debbie K. Glendale, AZ Dear Debbie, Great! That's the spirit! Now, build a shrine. -- DEAR COW BEAT, I'm a 28-year-old guy, and recently I have begun stealing birth control pills and eating them. They give me the weirdest feeling. I'm beginning to think I'm addicted. Is there something wrong with me? Todd S. Terra Haute, IN Dear Todd, Man, that's pretty creepy. Maybe you shouldn't be eating those things?! Yeesh.... -- DEAR COW BEAT, I go wild whenever I see cDc files and this drives my family crazy! One time, my mom caught me kissing printouts of your files; I was mortified! I thought my face would be permanently red! Remember that I love all of you and please, please, please come to Topeka soon! Kimberly H. Topeka, KA Dear Kimberly, A dozen of us are planning a visit soon, and we'll be staying at YOUR house! Love ya, babe! xoxoxo -- DEAR COW BEAT, I'm in the 7th grade and there's this guy at school I like and he seems to like me too, but once he said he didn't. My friends say that he really does like me, but that he's too shy to admit it. I would at least like to be able to talk to him like I do all my other friends. My problem is that i'm too shy around him and I cant seem to start up a conversation with him to give our friendship a chance. How can I start a conversation without being so nervous and shy? This way, we could start some sort of relationship. Chrissy M. Austin, TX Dear Chrissy, Chrissy, Chrissy Chrissy. SILLY GIRL! Offer him some Kool-Aid and let nature take its course. Then try some lines from Three's Company, it'll floor him. Next.... -- DEAR COW BEAT, I'm head over heals in love with The Pusher who wrote "Silent Applause." He's soo cute! Last night, I dreamed we went on a date to the beach. He kissed me and asked me to be his girlfriend. Oooh! It was awesome and soo romantic! My goal is to REALLY be his girlfriend. Pusher, if you're reading this, thanks for giving me such sweet dreams! Pam N. Tampa, FL Dear Pam, We sent your letter over to The Pusher, and he said he was going to have a really SPECIAL dream about you, too! Lucky Pam! -- DEAR COW BEAT, I'm 12 years old and I have a big problem. There's this one girl in my class who thinks I'm a snot. This girl says mean things about me to my friends. Another thing is that ever since I got my hair cut, everybody seems to hate me! Anyway, I don't know this girl that well, but I'd really like to be friends with her. Help! Mike T. Durango, CO Dear Mike, She thinks you're a snot? I don't see the problem. Maybe you lack resolve. Don't just let her think you're a snot, make sure she KNOWS you're a snot. Ah, youth. -- DEAR COW BEAT, First of all, I'd like to say you're doing an excellent job of keeping me informed on all the hot stars of telecom. I'd appreciate it greatly if you'd please put a picture of this gorgeous, fine, and not to mention sexy, guy Franken Gibe in your magazine. His eyes are to die for! Thanx! K. Kurt, Bergenfield, NJ Dear K. Kurt, Hmm. Well, here ya go. Knock yerself out. ____ /.@@.\ \ " / \_u/ -- DEAR COW BEAT, I am an eighteen-year-old high school senior and my older sister Tracy is my disciplinarian. Tracy is seven years older than me, and I have been living with her for the last two years while my parents are on a foreign-work assignment. My sister is a Registered Nurse and treats me very well, but she feels she has every right to warm my tail, as she calls it, if I disobey her or misbehave. She doesn't give me a strapping, thank goodness, but her pretty hand or hairbrush does plenty of justice to my bare behind. If I misbehave, she will not hesitate to turn me over her knee, lower my pants and briefs, and very severely spank my bare butt. It stings badly too. The spankings stings, but the embarrassment of being over he knee with my bare behind sticking up is worse. She frequently has her nurse's uniform on, so when she puts me over her knee, my genitals cannot avoid rubbing on her stockings. It's erotic, to say the least, and it's hard to control myself. Steve L. Cherry Hill, NJ Dear Steve, Wow. That's very special. Thanks for sharing. -- DEAR COW BEAT, What's up? My name is Jenny and I am 12 years old. I love cDc! I have 394 posters and 42 pins of them. I love Drunkfux. I have 220 posters of him alone. My best friend, Michelle, has 394 posters too. She loves Swamp Ratte'. She cries and faints over Ratte' like I do over Drunkfux. I love your nose, Drunkfux, and also about 25 to 30 other things about you. Michelle loves Ratte's legs, and about 20 to 25 things about him. We love cDc. I love love love you! You're the best thing that ever happened to us! Jenny S. Moraga, CA Dear Jenny, That's pretty weird. Maybe you need a hobby? -- DEAR COW BEAT, Hi! My name is Nicky and I'm 10 years old. I like your magazine very much, especially the Letters section. I truly love Obscure Images. He is my dream guy. Please put more articles about Obscure Images in COW BEAT. I hate New Kids On The Block, but I LOVE cDc!! Oi's No. 1 fan, Nicky G. Webster, NY Note: We get thousands upon thousands of letters similar to this one, and I'm afraid we can't answer them all! But thanks for writing, all of you! _/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/ The COW BEAT News Pasture! Last time Cultee COUNT ZERO made an appearance at a mall in Florida, 24 fans were injured due to their wild youthful lust. When he appeared at a Washington mall, he had to escape in a laundry hamper! More recently, thousands of screaming fans turned up at the Cambridgeside Galleria in Cambridge and the Atrium Mall in Chestnut Hill in Massachusetts to get a glimpse of their idols; COUNT ZERO, THE DETH VEGETABLE, DAVE FERRET, and WHITE KNIGHT. This time around, the gals kept their wits about them and there were very few injuries reported. Before the Cultees arrived at the Atrium Mall, radio DJ Bob Casta reminded the 5000-plus crowd to make sure they didn't push and shove in their excite- ment. There were people on the main mall floor and even more people looking down over the railings three levels high! At the Galleria, THE DETH VEGETABLE and DAVE FERRET arrived on a police jet ski at the Cambridgeside Lagoon. The gals started chanting "FERRET! FERRET! FERRET!" Pretty soon, hunky WHITE KNIGHT and COUNT ZERO arrived too - by helicopter! VEGGIE scanned the crowd and pointed to all the posters of himself and other Cultees. "Next time, instead of buying those, give that money to the homeless people of Boston," said VEGGIE with a sweet smile. "They're the ones who need it. And please be careful and watch out for each other on the way out." What caring superstars they are! -- Okay, you work really hard to be successful, staying up until all hours of the night writing files, modding your board, persuading the public you've got what it takes, and then - boom - you're a sensation! Journalists peg you for interviews and gals everywhere quiver in your presence. Add lots of coffee and drooping pants to this picture and you've got G.A. ELLSWORTH! Every morning, girls wait for him to come out of his house just so they can touch him! Girls hand him love notes, phone numbers, cards, flowers and other goodies. And, of course, G.A. loves it. What guy wouldn't love all that attention?! But, he says, "It doesn't boost my ego. I'm just glad they like my work." -- Responding to allegations concerning their reputation as the GANGSTAZ of TELECOM, an anonymous cDc spokesperson responds: "Sure, we'd bust caps on a narc... but we don't support killin' nobody that don't deserve it!" -- The cDc CULTEES love mixing in with their fans, but due to their overwhelming popularity, that can sometimes be dangerous. You know how you are, girls. If you saw a CULTEE standing near you, wouldn't you go absolutely nuts? Sure you would!! So, THE NIGHTSTALKER and THE RAVER devised a clever way to mix with their fans and be perfectly safe at the same time! All they do is slip into some wigs, sunglasses and girls' clothes and they can walk right through the crowds! Leave it to cDc to find an ingenious solution to ANY problem! _/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/_/ ______________________________/advertisement\_______________________________ If you were to bottle the vibe and aura that is CULT OF THE DEAD COW, what would it smell like? Just like cDc, the scent would have to be fresh, innovative, charming, cool and totally versatile. Kind of like your fave piece of clothing (be it a black jacket or a pair of jeans) that you can dress-up or dress-down and wear anywhere and everywhere! So, back to our original question: What would cDc smell like in a bottle? cDc experimented in its secret underground labs and didn't stop until it had achieved perfection, capturing the flash of cDc as well as the subtleties. cDc proudly introduces its newest fragrance - PISS! This lively scent mirrors the chic, sophisticated technophile lifestyle of today's active cyberpunk. If your nose is twitching with anticipation, look for cDc's PISS! at fine stores everywhere. A totally unsolicited quote: "All I gotta do is dab on a little of cDc's PISS! before I go out... and man, the hotties come runnin'! Thanks, cDc!" -DISPATER, Phrack magazine cDc's PISS! Fresh! Now!

GREENPEACE, a glamorous member of cDc, the hottest group in telecom, says he honestly can't understand why people want his autograph! TARKIN DARKLIGHTER says, "There's no more just walking down the street, and going somewhere and hanging out with people. But it's the price you pay." RED KNIGHT's fave type of gal? "An understanding, sweet, charming girl with a strong personality!" REID FLEMMING is a guy who's always in the public eye. Whether he's attending some gala event, doing some publicity, going out to dinner, or even just hanging out - people are constantly looking at him for fashion do's and don't's. What's REID's advice?

"Who's going to visit our detective business in this weather?" he fumed. Sally had to agree. She was the prettiest girl in their grade, and was also the toughest. Many was the time that Bugs Meany regretted ever having crossed Sally in one of her cases. Encyclopedia was the brains behind their operation, possessing the keen memory and sharp mental skills that his nickname implied, but Sally was the muscle; bullies had learned to steer clear of the pair when they were on a job. Suddenly, Pee-Wee Weatherby ran up the driveway. Soaked to the skin, the pudgy second-grader approached the overturned wooden crate that served as the agency's desk and plunked down a scratched-up quarter. "I've got a job for you," he declared firmly. Encyclopedia pocketed the quarter. "No case too small," he announced. "What's the scoop, Pee-Wee?" "That bad old Bugs Meany has sold a bunch of us on a plan to recycle newspapers. We were all to contribute a dollar to get the business started. Bugs said that we could earn $2.50 a week once the plan got underway. Well, it's been two weeks now, and we haven't seen any of our money! We asked Bugs to give us our stakes back, but he said he couldn't do that. I want my dollar back!" Sally patted Pee-Wee across the desk. "Don't worry, Pee-Wee. The Encyclopedia Brown Detective Agency is on the job!" "That's right, Sally," said Encyclopedia. "Now, Pee-Wee, can you tell us where Bugs is hanging out?" Soon the rain stopped, and the trio biked over to the abandoned lot on Jefferson Street. A pile of scrap metal and boards formed a ramshackle club-house. Hanging on the door was a crudely-lettered sign reading: PAPER RECYCLING NEWSPRINT, CARDBOARD, SCRAP CASH PAID Below it was another sign reading: CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE Lounging in front of the clubhouse was a very bored-looking Bugs Meany. He was an older boy with a Jughead crown hat and a nasty sneer. He hated Encyclopedia Brown for his interference in his previous schemes, but he feared Sally and her terrible fists. As the three kids approached, Bugs looked a little nervous. However, he soon relaxed and looked down his nose at the younger children. "Welcome to my place of business, ladies and gentlemen!" Bugs announced in a sarcastic voice. "Would you like to trade in your newspapers for cash? Gee, I'm really sorry, but our business folded, and I don't know when we'll be back on our feet." He regarded the trio with a saucy smile. "You dirty rat!" shouted Sally. "You're robbing kids of their money for your business and not giving them anything in return! I'll bet you never did one minute of work at recycling!" Sally menaced Bugs with her fists; Bugs quickly recoiled. Encyclopedia Brown surveyed the yard. The grass had grown very tall and green. Next to the clubhouse was a wheelbarrow, partially filled with old newspapers. There were several ruts cutting across the abandoned lot. They were all of uniform depth. Bugs was shouting back at Sally: "That's not true! I had a legitimate business going! I would bring newspapers, cardboard boxes, and other paper scrap to the recycling center! They paid me cash; I was going to distribute it to my shareholders as soon as I showed a profit! I invested their stake in that wheelbarrow, but then the recycling center closed! Now I can't repay the stake; otherwise I would - honest!" He favored Sally with a smug smile. Encyclopedia Brown stepped up to Bugs and picked something off his shirt. He held it up for all to see. It looked like a scrap of greenish ribbon. Encyclopedia Brown smiled. Bugs Meany frowned. "So what? What does that prove? It doesn't mean anything. I'm innocent, and you can't prove otherwise." "You're wrong," said Encyclopedia quietly. "You're guilty, and you're going to return that money right now. You see, Bugs, you made one small mistake." WHAT WAS BUGS' MISTAKE? (see below) Bugs' mistake was meeting the Brown Detective Agency alone. Sally held Bugs down and sodomized him with a power drill. By the time she had worked her way up to the three-eighths-inch bit, Bugs was in a talkative mood. Encyclopedia Brown elicited the appropriate confession and obtained a full refund for the other kids. Sometimes, not having a shred of evidence is no obstacle for a real sleuth. Encyclopedia Brown does it again! xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [T:--][Xfer:1-New Uploads] :V [File to view] :ircmanua.txt xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx IRC MANUAL FOR LOVE: V 1.0 Written by Steve Franklin, 11:01, July 22,1992 How to succeed with love and flirting on irc: Be a girl. ----------------------------------------------------------- IRC MANUAL FOR LOVE V. 2.0 (corrects a few bugs, and adds new features) Written by Steve Franklin, 11:02, July 22, 1992 How to succeed with love and flirting on irc: Be a girl. Start a channel called #hotsexforpervertswhoare10inchersormore. /msg guys who have names like hugeone, manly, bigbody, or worse. Figure out exactly what your dimensions should be... Don't remind the fellow you are flirting with that he is actually a geek. NEVER ask the question "if you're so great, being so smart, incredibly good looking, a sports jock, and piano virtuoso (THOR!), then how come you're on irc 18 hours a day?" Become one with irc lingo - this includes annoying smileys (8), ;) :) >:) ), flowers ( &>--`/--), yecky sweetness (*hugs*, *grin*, *smile*) etc... Tell him you're glad he's so attractive but that it doesn't really matter anyway, and even if he was short, ugly, and overweight it wouldn't matter. (Warning, he may at this point admit that he truly is, shorty, ugly and overweight.) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- IRC MANUAL FOR LOVE V. 3.0 (patch for manual Version 2.0) Written by Steve Franklin, 11:06, July 22, 1992 How to succeed with love and flirting on irc: For men who insist on maintaining masculinity and not stooping to female imitation: Consider flirting with other males. There are few females on IRC and many of them are actually other males who are already familiar with Version 2.0 of the IRC-for-Love manual. Choose a nick like "sensitive" or "ILoveKids" or "NotAGeek" Basically, you want to choose a nick that will make you stand out as a nice guy. Don't try anything dumb like "BigMan", "Stamina" or "SuperMan", because these will inevitably attract those who are already familiar with Version 2.0 of the IRC-For-Love manual and are not truly female, but female impersonators... Say that you like to cry. Remember, you're a 90's man! Recite poetry. Slip in the fact that you can bench press 803.5 lbs. Tell her you have a GPA of 4.9 You are a god-fearing religious individual (remember, the bad girls are actually MEN!) Tell her you can cook. Tell her you like your women unattractive. Pretty girls are so vain and boring. Start your own channel called #GoodBoysLikeFun, but shorten it up a bit to something easier to type. Yeah, try #GBLF. Warning, other individuals who read this manual may have already started #GBLF so be patient and wait your turn. ---------------------------------------------------------------- IRC MANUAL FOR LOVE V. 3.1 (patch for manual Version 3.0) Written by Steve Franklin, 11:11, July 22, 1992 How to succeed with love and flirting on irc: You can't. It's lame, pathetic, and utterly unsuccessful. After a vote taken among important members of the IRC clan, it has been discovered that 100% frown upon any sort of amorous activities. Get a real relationship, but never settle for an irc facsimile. You don't know what you're dealing with, and it isn't really worth your time. xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [T:--][Xfer:1-New Uploads] :V [File to view] :kradthin.txt xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx "It's a K-Rad Thing" by Swamp Ratte'/cDc So here I am... 3 am, kitchen. Sitting at counter, pouring some cereal, making a mess with the milk. TV's on, Paula Abdul on MTV. She keeps claiming she's "in a funky way," but I know I'm funkier 'cause I haven't showered yet. Nobody's funkier than me. No white boy, anyhow. Man, check out Paula's cleavage. Praise be to whomever invented the push-up bra. Think I'd like to stuff my face amongst her breasts and make duckie noises. Better yet, Debbie Gibson. Yeah, she could tongue my navel and fix me some orange juice (fresh, from concentrate) any day. I bet her breasts wiggle oh-so-attractively when she shakes a juice pitcher. One container of orange juice glop, three containers full of water. The magic formula. Shake well before serving. Go Debbie, go. Shake that pitcher. Shake Your Love. I'm getting an erection but I can't deal with that now. I've got cereal to eat. BEFORE IT GETS SOGGY. Right. So I try to take my mind off Miss Gibson's perkily heaving mammaries and move my attention back to my not-just-for-breakfast-anymore food product. My cereal, you ask? Alpha Bits. Choice of py00ter geeks everywhere. Alpha Bits cereal consists of little brown wheat-things shaped like the numbers 0 through 9, and these small marshmallows in the shape of letters A through F. Hexadecimal, ya know? A lot of cyberpunks are into this thing called Marshmallow HEX now, made from these Alpha Bits marshmallows which are laced with a stimulant and hallucinogen. It sounds kinda like ice, but doesn't turn you into a raging psychopath. It's more of an "enthused trip," sorta. Anyhow, there are bunches o' t-files out on making Marshmallow HEX so I won't go into it here. On the back of the cereal box are hex and ASCII charts so the kiddies can get off by spelling obscene words in their bowls in hex. It's a great way to start your day. Hey hey. I should get paid for the rhymes I've made. Another reason why Alpha Bits is so popular amongst py00ter types, as is Special K, is that it's fortified... with Vitamin K. Vitamin K is important to keep you k-rad and out of that lamerosity slump that can drag you down. Yeah, a well-balanced breakfast is important and never let it be said that I skimp on nutrition, including the full day's supply of Vitamin K I get with my Alpha Bits. Just ask any other elite types and they'll tell you too... Vitamin K is the way to start out a totally elite day. Let me rephrase that: "vITAmiN K! iZ ThA waYYE t0 stARtEZz 0UT A t0tALlye EL8! dAY!!!!1!" I've gotta keep my k-ness up 'cause I don't want any shit coming down on me from DemonSeed Elite. If you still don't know the deal with DemonSeed Elite, then listen up. People don't like to talk about him/it much, 'cause it's such a heavy subject... like a giant cow hanging over your head, ready to drop at any slip up you make. Or in this case, a monster truck. Rumor is, that back in the late 1970s-early '80s, DSE was a user who achieved Maximum K-rad Eliteness at which point his soul merged with the global telecom network. DemonSeed Elite was no longer just a person, but an entity residing in the cables and satellite links of the network. He is AT&T, he is Internet, he is SouthWestern Bell, he is Smilin' Uncle Dudley's Child Pokin' BBS across town. He is your phone. He is the spy satellites which orbit above our heads. He knows when you've been sleeping and he knows when you're awake. And he takes any sign of lameness on his networks as a personal insult. To speak his real name is to die. Lamers and r0dents all face his wrath. No one has seen him dealing out his vengeance, or been alive afterwards to tell about it, but it will come. Believe that. All we can do is make assumptions from the wretched remains. A thirteen- year-old with his intestines ripped out; fiberoptic cables twisted tightly around the pulp of what was once his frontal lobe. The young geek's forehead was branded "k-lame", the words still sizzling in his freshly seared flesh when he was found bleeding to death on the floor of his bedroom. His monitor still glowed with the ominous text, "C U L8R!", upon signing off to his friend he had been chatting with over the modem. His pal suffered a similar fate. Entire user groups have been found at their meetings hung from the rafters with coaxial cable, their bodies swollen and blue as they swung gently in the hushed roar of the air conditioning system. DemonSeed Elite, in his physical manifestation, is said to prefer travelling in a giant orange monster truck with tires 30 feet high and 30 feet wide. The accuracy of these monster truck descriptions may leave something to be desired since the witnesses were pissing their pants at the time of observance... though the monster truck theory is consistent with some reports of death. On several occasions, groups of r0dents were found squashed flat as they crossed a parking lot or open field. The only clue to the cause of their sudden flatness was giant tread marks all over their bodies. It's as if a large truck fell from the sky and crushed them into a 2-D state, then disappeared! Now you can believe this, take heed, and watch out for yourself or not. Hey, it's your life. But as for me, I'm gonna get on with eating my Alpha Bits. I'm no fool. No siree. xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [T:--][Xfer:1-New Uploads] :V [File to view] :livehoho.txt xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx "Live From XmasCon 1991" This file was created at the second annual HoHoCon during the night of December 28th through to the next morning in Houston, Texas.

This is it.. I must go.. I may finish later.. I don't know ------------------------------------------------- The Summoning of Demon Seed... Blackness was all around in the Hilton parking lot... the power was strong and we knew Demon Seed Elite might appear any second from the power of pre-puberty crazed glangular overactive k0dez kids... a hush fell over the parking lot and we suddenly felt irritated for some reason -- yes we knew that tonite WAS the nite for the coming of Demon Seed Elite. A herd of K0dez kids wandered by in search of K-rad cyber-strippers. In a flash of blue light and clouds of 10 micron dust motes, Demon Seed Elite materialized. It's blazing CGA monitors flashing with menace, it descended on the nerdlings with fury.... The beams shot forth from the blazing monitors searing the flesh of the huddled masses. The first casualty was a gangly young codester, twitchintg with the expectations of the looming nudity. The firey beams struck him at the base of his spine, ripping flesh from bone, sending a shower of blood over the remainaing hacking horde. The energy expuled from the first kill powered on the energy seeking transformer of Demon Seed. The k0dez kids cried out in escatsy knowing that cheezy motel porn was no more in their bloodthirst for fat sleezy cybernetic whores. They had a bigger thing to worry about right now - it is Demon Seed Elite. As the k-rad K00L smoke cleared, Demon Seed Elite appeared...again... The drolls of the M0D special issue cybernetic cotton gin's drolls permeated the cybernetic battlefield...with dung...cybernetic dung: the dung of the Demon Seed. The thousands of pixels which made the eye of the Cyberwaste cast its watchful gaze on the terrain some 6,700,000 miles below, methodologically scanning the payphones of the known universe for the brief flash of a KaLl1Ng KaRD!!11!1! Yet we have not taken the time to discuss the true meaning of Demon Seed, for he has the untmost pirating cabilities... Demon Seed needs no ratio or time limit for everyone knows the k-rad warez of the future that sp00geD out of the bed of Demon Seed... for he has the power to travel into the future and get games that have yet to be created in our present time... Then the EELYTE surviors beheld to our surprise and delight Clifford Stoll himself sat in the passenger seat, cluthing a pipe His hands were all shaking, just like a speed freak He spit when he laughed, and we called him a geek "It's the COOKIES!" he exclaimed, "Not the speed or the blow" "Don't end up like me! Please, just say no!" The truck rattled and shook, the license plate read "K-K00L" As it drove away, all we could do was sit, gape, and drool. xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [T:--][Xfer:1-New Uploads] :V [File to view] :propacdc.txt xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." -- Amendment I to the Constitution of the United States "No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered as patriots." -- Republican Presidential Nominee (1988) George Bush "...where true brotherhood existed among all colors, where no one felt segregated, where there was no "superiority" complex, no "inferiority" complex - then voluntarily, naturally, people of the same kind felt drawn together by that which they had in common." -- Malcolm X, referring to a 1964 pilgrimage to Mecca You can get with this, or you can get with that.

Many have noted that the dawning of cheap and effective cryptographic systems could spell the end of the ability of governments to invade people's privacy. Unfortunately, it appears that the government and its cronies have also realized this, and intend to take preemptive action. Our notion of civil rights has decayed so far that it is now considered a citizen's duty to not merely be quiet while he is enslaved but to actively cooperate with his own enslavement. Not merely must we put up with the indignity of the government being granted the right to read our papers and communications to each other, but now it is suggested that we ordinary citizens must personally cooperate to make it easier for them to read our communications." _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (U) (U) (U) (U) (U) (U) (U) (U) (U) "One passage from the Pledge of Allegiance struck me as a youth as being the true strength of my government.

It says that my country is fully behind the aims of the Constitution and that I as a member of that country have been given the duty to disolve the government by force if reguired when the government becomes an enemy of the people who enacted the Constitution. Implicit in that duty is the call to those aims without regard to the laws the errant government may have enacted or protections removed. To those ends my government is not allowed to prevent me from meeting with others who may feel that the government has gone bad. I am allowed to keep my COMMUNICATIONS private. In order to defend my country from a bad government as well as other threats I am allowed to keep and bear arms. To the end of individual protection of the right to privacy, the individual must secure that privacy through any means available.

Today I got a phone call (on my board line, I picked it up) from someone who wouldn't identify himself. He started by saying that I was in major trouble. I was wondering who it was, and then he finally mentioned cDc and he said that he and the association he's with ("... extremely underground, you will never be able to find us") is against the "sick trash that your group puts out, and it is insulting" or some shit like that. Then he continued, "We do not like the fact that your members are sympathetic to certain people." I started going into this long statement about freedom of speech, and then he started threatening everyone. He said that he could shut us down within 48 hours and that anyone who didn't drop out was in major trouble, including their families. So I asked, how do you expect to do that? He said they have "very high connections" or something. He wouldn't tell me who he was, he only said that he has a shell account on DRU and that many people use it often.

Using the computer modum [sic], these unsavory individuals can communicate directly with your child without your knowledge. Just as importantly, you should be concerned if your child has a friendship with other youth who have access to this equipment in an unsupervised environment. Using a computer and a modum your child can readily access community "bulletin boards" and receive sexually explicit and graphic material from total strangers who can converse with your children, individuals you quite probably wouldn't even talk with. The concern becomes more poignant when stated otherwise; would you let a child molester, murderder, convicted criminal into your home to meet alone with your child? According to Fresno Police Detective Frank Clark, "Your child can be in real danger from pedophiles, rapists, satanic cultists and other criminals known to be actively engaged in computer conversation. Unwittingly, naive children with a natural curiosity can be victimized; emerging healthy sexual feelings of a child can be subverted into a twisted unnatural fetish affecting youth during a vulnerable time in their lives." "It is anticipated that parents, when armed with knowledge this activity exists and awareness that encounters with such deviate individuals results in emotional and psychological damage to their child, will take appropriate measures to eliminate the possibility of strangers interacting with their children via a computer." A news conference is scheduled for 10 a.m., Thursday, March 19, 1992 at Fresno Police Department, Headquarters. The conference, presided over by Detective Frank Clark, will be held in the Library located on the second floor. ==== _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) ((___)) [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] [ x x ] \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (' ') (U) (U) (U) (U) (U) (U) (U) (U) (U) Ha.

One of the main points that was stressed over and over in a grueling series of interviews, cross-examinations, questionnaires, and photography sessions was the fact that I lost my taste buds from shrapnel back in 'Nam, and have ever since been unable to discern the piquancy of anything I eat. Texture and the U.S.R.D.A. nutritional information on the sides of cereal boxes is now my single rationale for choosing one entree or side order over another, and for some unknown reason this fact is infinitely engrossing to the swarm of media personnel that pay daily visits to explore my history and background. I'll eat sea squirt, mashed potatoes, and orange jello all in one large bowl, hashed together, to impress upon them my utter and complete lack of taste. Lucky Charms and tequila is a favorite morning snack of mine. The apparent dangers of this kind of obliviousness are being slipped a mickey in my drink or even getting my steak a bit underdone. To avoid such pitfalls I bring along my hunchback Porcopio to taste all my dishes before I myself partake. Porcopio is a brave and noble man, and doubles as my bodyguard whenever Jim's not around with his phalanx of ninjas. The last time I had any kind of trouble was in an alley behind the movie theater one Tuesday night as the early showing of the most recent Disney movie was just letting out. A pack of three or four slovenly burgeoning juveniles accosted Jim and I as we were making off with the life-size cardboard cutout of Crocodile Dundee from the theater's lobby. Fortunately the ninjas were on-hand as always and in a flash of shuriken, katana, and bare-fisted flurry the adolescents were in retreat, nursing their superficial wounds and cursing the ancestors of the silent warriors. What could we do but bow, take them all out for sandwiches at Jack In The Box and bid their honorable selves adieu? At a loss, Jim and I eventually ended up back at my place where, inspired by the death stalkers of the night, we sat down and played head-to-head Tetris on his Nintendo and ordered out for Smelt Egg sushi handrolls. xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [T:--][Xfer:1-New Uploads] :V [File to view] :tdethcdc.txt xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx FOR A MOMENT HE SMILED by Tequila Willy/cDc They spotted Randall long before he spotted them. "He looks like a good one!" Scott shouted. "Yeah, not scrawny like that last one!" Steve laughed. Randall stood motionless, paralyzed with fear. Who were these men and what did they want from him? He glanced at Malcolm and Charlotte who only exchanged confused glances. Seconds seemed like hours in the silence of the morning air. Suddenly Scott produced an axe from his backpack and, pointing straight at Randall, said, "We're taking you home with us!" Steve laughed in agreement. Randall felt the axe tear into his side. His life blood mixed with the freshly fallen snow and a scream escaped from within his being. Malcolm and Charlotte gasped in horror at the sight before them. "What was that?" Steve asked. "What was what?" "Must've been my 'magination." Scott drew the axe back over his shoulder and resumed bludgeoning Randall's body. Malcolm and Charlotte stood motionless, not sure what to do. Their lifelong friend was being struck down, just a couple of yards away from them, and they were powerless to help. The men labored with their grisly mission for several minutes, taking turns with the axe. Sweat dripped from their foreheads and coated their armpits. When it was all over, Randall was a pitiful disembodied wreck in the snow. Scott, now smiling, glanced at Malcolm and Charlotte and wiped Randall's juices from the axe. This final insult sent a mixture of anger and fear though them. Steve tied a rope around Randall's body and began to drag him away from the scene. Scott returned the axe into his backpack and walked a few yards behind Steve. As if their casual murder wasn't enough, they both began to sing as they disappeared into the distance. Malcolm and Charlotte began to cry. Randall slipped in and out of consciousness for the next few weeks. He was hardy for his size, and though his wounds were mortal, the life blood within him was enough to drag out his final days on earth into the greatest living hell and beyond. He remembered the wind rushing around him shortly after being subdued. And the sounds of a truck engine running. He remembered being tortured with a saw. He remembered being tarred and feathered, in a strange sort of way. And he was secured in a manner which kept him motionless. He remembered the countless fires they lit in the weeks that followed. The countless fires that were placed so dangerously close to him that he could feel the heat wanting to consume him - and at that point he would have welcomed it. He remembered the way the men brought over all their friends who laughed and pointed at him. They sang mocking songs at him that made him cry. He remembered the way they finally cleansed him of the tar and feathers. He remembered being placed in the cold dark street to finally die. The weeks of torture had finally ended.

It would be out of character for her, in addition to suggesting to the viewers to face it that there really is no way a man and a woman can have a romantic relationship without sex. If the show did do that, then it would definitely be predictable since that's what we're constantly told by the shows we watch on TV (fiction and non-fiction).

I agree that the episode made it seem like it might happen, because it might have happened to someone who was in the same situation as Donna but dealt with it differently than she did. xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [A]uto reply [C]ontinue [R]e-read [?] :C << New-Scan: 3-Deep in a Hole/50 msgs >> xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [Numb] 48/50 [Date] 12/24/92 [From] Mr. Curious/DoPi #32 [Subj] ode to an ex girlfriend I WAS AT WORK, LOOKING THROUGH MY WALLET.

I see so many hip people around here, with that hip, sullen expression, wearing their hip, black, sullen clothes, carrying their oh so hip portfolios around hiply, yet sullen. Their self-induced tension is so thick even I can see it. I am held in thrall by their powerful sense of self-persecution. I can't look away as they discuss their hip problems amongst their own dark and moody clique. The clouds of hip tobacco smoke rise from their corner table where they talk about other people's art and make assumptions even though the person who actually poured out his/her soul into the canvas could hardly have known it would be such an icon to these hip persons. I can't help feeling envious of their self-induced tension, and their hip black leather shoes with a gloss and a shine unrivalled by the slickest oil spill. Those art chicks really turn me on with their fluorescent-lighted pallor cultivated by many evenings of attending avant-garde poetry readings and sullen performance art. And to think I am so unhip I could never in a million years understand the pain, the TRAUMA, the utter ANGST that these poor, godlike souls have to contend with. Nay, my simple life is one of pleasure as compared to these martyrs, flagellating themselves so sullenly to keep themselves in enough pain to admire other people's art. And I am so unhip as to be simply depressed, not quite hip enough to be as sullen as them. Sullenly yours, /I\ Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke. /(*)\ /IIIII\ /IIIIIII\ Give me SLACK or give me food (or kill me). xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [A]uto reply [C]ontinue [R]e-read [?] :C << New-Scan: 4-Zechs und Zechs!/50 msgs >> xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [Numb] 50/50 [Date] 12/24/92 [From] Terminal Illness #58 [Subj] My sekrut fantasy I'll drop by YOUR MOM's place for our session. She pays me my $500,000 and we get to work. I tie YOUR MOTHER up, naked and spread-eagled across two sawhorses with chains. Then I pour STP motor oil across her fat, flaccid butt. Her pale skin glistening in the dim light of the garage door opener's bulb makes her seem even more diseased and pathetic. "Please, Raheem" her middle-aged mouth moans in anticipation. "I had to sell the house and the cars. I also sold my husband into slavery, he's now in Botswana. Satisfy me." "Yeah, whatever" I mumble back. I find a pair of jumper cables under some badminton rackets and open the minivan's hood which is also in the garage. I connect the positive and negative cables to the battery and the other ends to each butt cheek and start the minivan. YOUR MOTHER is starting to make a buzzing noise as her teeth rattle together (in ecstasy, no doubt). Then I take the tetherball pole which was leaning against the corner and approach her from behind. "H-h-how's THIS?!" I try to stutter above YOUR MOTHER's electrically- induced noises as I shove several feet of the tetherball pole into her vaginal orifice and far beyond. Her screams are clearly audible over the purr of the engine. All of the noise is getting obnoxious, and besides, the closed garage is filling up with carbon monoxide. "Well, s'later!" I say cheerily as I leave the garage into the house, closing the door carefully behind me. On my way out, I stop by the kitchen and make myself a sandwich and help myself to some Coke. xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [A]uto reply [C]ontinue [R]e-read [?] :C << New-Scan: 5-Eye Have a Dream!/50 msgs >> xXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXx [Numb] 50/50 [Date] 12/24/92 [From] Swamp Ratte' #102 [Subj] Operation Sundevil III Yow... really scary dream tonight, 'bout people getting killed and stuff like this: I was messing around with my 'puter, calling stuff. I notice a weird system or whatever and buffer it all and save the buffer. Later, I call the weird thing some more and do whatever... but I start feeling kinda itchy in my head. Duh. Details are really sketchy now, especially from the first part of the dream, so bear, huh.... So I go visit this hacker friend who lives in a great big, mostly empty house. It's kinda Victorian style... the guy's sick and laying in bed. I ask him how's he doing, and about this computer I found... and he's like, "'s got me... it's too late... but you're like caught (and he makes a kinda pinching motion with his hand, with his thumb and first finger almost together). See, that stuff you found, it's a virus, and an AI, but it's more than'll fuck you up,'ll fuck you up." Then he turns his head to look right at me and he's got these crazy eyes, and he's sweating, and he starts doing this insane laugh... like an evil clown or something. So I'm like, "Uh, yeah... thanks" and split quick. So for the next few days I'm messing with this stuff I've found... trying to disassemble it, digging through the file with a sector editor, whatever... and I can't really figure it out but there's references to bad stuff... like the Black Death in the medieval period, huge wars, religious slaughters like the Crusades and the Inquisitions and pagan killing... So there's all this bizarre stuff, right... and my head's buzzing. It's kinda like an ear-ringing thing, but more obnoxious and in the back of my head. It's getting worse and I don't know what to do 'bout it... so I go to visit the hacker guy again. He's gotten worse. He's sweating really bad and barely coherent in his speech, and very weak. I tell him about the buzzing and what I'd found in the 'puter file, and he mumbles, "I know... all that... but it's got you too now." and then he does that crazy laughter... but it turns into seizures, and he's gasping and all. So I rush outta the house to mine, pick up the phone and call '911'... "911, May I help you?" "Yeah... Phred P00dutz at 1313 Mockingbird Lane is having seizures and needs an ambulance!" " WE'LL GET HIM AND WE'LL GET YOU AND WE'LL GET ALL THE REST!"... then more of that damn laughter. The phone starts blaring a really loud carrier tone... "CONNECT! CONNECT!"... I'm getting hyper-wigged and slam down the phone. My sister's standing there, wondering what's going on... I try to explain that that hacker guy's dying or dead and there's this 'puter deal that has something to do with it. So we're rushing around trying to decide what to do... and we hear this banging noise somebody pounding on a board with a hammer. It's coming from the front, so we rush to the door and pull it open. There's a wooden sign, about a foot and a half long, hanging from the porch overhang by two chains. It's swinging slightly, and it has the words "GOT YOU" carved into it and painted nicely, like some sort of twisted Pennsylvania Dutch thing. We're going "shit..." and my sister goes to get the disk and printouts with the stuff on it, figuring we could just trash 'em or something and it'll go away. Then there's the banging noise again, out front. Rush to the door again, and there's another sign hanging below the first, by two chains, swinging slightly and carved. It says "YOUR PARENTS ARE DEAD" So we go upstairs and there they are, slumped in the corner with their throats bleeding all over the place... the throats are cut almost completely through with a single cut. Yikes. So my sister and I rush out the door, delirious and freaked out of our minds... she's carrying the 'puter stuff and we're running out in the front yard to get away... away to anywhere, we don't know. But there's the banging noise again... bambambambambam... and she's stopping and saying "Look at this..." and the stack of printouts has stuff carved into it, all the way through... and she's reading it, "Whatsdis...'YOU TOO..." and she falls over and starts screaming and gurgling... and I'm trying to hold her up but her's getting cut through slowly as I stare in blank horror... like a wire was going right through her neck from the front. Then I woke up. S.

This is where u *SOCIAL ENGINEAR!!*. Be a GQ stylin' d00d first, c, and say "Hey bayybee... my peenis iz livin' large! An youze a hottie-t0ttie! so gimme dat f00d, and you can call me Spotty!" Gyrlie will be rel impressed-like with ur rhyming skills, so she give you food ofa the plate tray thing! Then you run out real fast into ur waiting getaway on teh lam real fast car and go screech away. Rad, G! IF anybody tries to interfere with yoour plans, shoot 'em the head!! DEAD!! THey shoulda k-none better than to mess wif a gangsta! So there u r. I dind't wanan overhwellm nobody with toooo much elyteness, 'cuz you doods might not be up fo that kinda action. Krass Katt!! clockin' much k0dez suck my peeniz! << If this was a regular board, I'd have a divider here >> Hello again, Bunny F00-F00. Clarence. What did you think of that? >My eyes! Argh! It's horrible! Please, make it stop!! Ok, no more. All those users have something in common. Do you know what it is? >They're all... stupid? Yes, yes, of course. But they're also DEAD. I killed them. Tonight. Just like I killed more r0dents the night before and the night before that. I call them to this board so they can make a Final Post. A lasting testament to their lameosity. A death certificate. I'm DemonSeed Elite. >No! It can't be! I'd heard the rumors, but I never thought were real! I don't understand, why did you call me? NO! It can't be! I'm elite! Right?! I thought I was elite! Everyone says so! I'm a warez distributor! I've got a fast modem and a big hard drive! You can't possibly want to kill ME! Sorry, Clarence. It's true. You've been running with a bad crowd, those warez d00dez. I've been watching you, Clarence, and tonight you committed a horrible sin. Tonight you... this is hard for me to say, I'm getting choked up... RECKLESSLY DELETED T-FILES WITH A WILDCARD CHARACTER! Clarence, how could you? How could you have so little regard for the sanctity of text files? Don't you realize that t-files form the only real, legitimate testimony of our telecom culture? The one that WE built ourselves with the roar of our modems and the callouses on our fingertips? No outsider can capture this on... on PAPER! We have text that is beautiful... text that squirms and leaps and trudges across our screens, vibrant and alive! >Oh DemonSeed Elite, forgive me! I was blinded... BLINDED BY WAREZ!! Buck up, Clarence. You have a lot to learn on your path to Enlightened Eliteness. There's nothing wrong with wares, in moderation. We must keep in mind always the proper priorities. Cherish deeply the Phrack's, the Anarchy Inc.'s, and the cDc's of our world; for they know the correct path and will not deceive you. >I will! I see it now... everything's so clear! Thank you... you've saved my life! Spared your life. I'm giving you another chance, but I'm watching. I'm always watching. Log off and go to sleep now, little one. Tomorrow is a new day.
