==Phrack Inc.== Volume Two, Issue 20, File 1 of 12 Phrack Inc. Newsletter Issue XX Index ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Welcome to Phrack XX, the end of the old and beginning of the new. The original hard luck heroes are back from retirement (or are they?). Originally, this was going to be an issue put out by Crimson Death to show what the end of Metal Shop Private was all about as well as to end the association of Metal Shop with Phrack Inc., but things just didn't seem to quite happen that way. As of today, October 12, 1988, Knight Lightning and Taran King are once again the chief editors of Phrack Inc. with the help of Epsilon and The Prophet. This particular issue is dedicated to Metal Shop Private. Most of the files, with the exception of this Index, the Phrack Pro-Phile on Taran King, the Timeline, and Phrack World News XX, all files contain the contents of Metal Shop Private as of the day it went down with a few exceptions. Because of the "Days until deletion" function, many of the messages were lost when we ran the board again. Most, if not all, subboards were filled close to the 100 message mark. We apologize for not being clever enough to predict the results of running the program after such a long time, but you should get a good idea of what went on within the domain of Metal Shop Private. We hope you enjoy it, and be watching soon for Phrack XXI. Good to be back! Taran King and Knight Lightning =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This issue contains the following files; 1.

Phrack World News XX Featuring SummerCon '88 ^*^ ========================================================================= ========================================================================= ==Phrack Inc.== Volume Two, Issue 20, File 2 of 12 ==Phrack Pro-Phile XX== Written and Created by Taran King 1/5/88 Welcome to the Phrack Pro-Phile XX. Phrack Pro-Phile was created to bring info to you, the users, about old or highly important/controversial people. This month, I bring to you someone who you all have seen and heard of... Taran King ~~~~~~~~~~ (me!) Taran King (I) was the sysop of Metal Shop Private, a private exchange for telecommunications enthusiasts (phone phreaks and hackers) as well as being the home-base of Phrack Inc. which I ran. I also had a hand in the organization of SummerCon '87 and PartyCon '87. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Personal ~~~~~~~~ Handle: Taran King Call him: Randy, Randster, Randall, whatever (real name is Rand) Past handles: None Handle origin: The main character in The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander Date of Birth: 7/11/69 Age at current date: 19 years old Height: 5'10" or so (give or take an inch) Weight: 135-140 lbs. (I hate fat people) Eye color: Brown Hair Color: Brown Computers: IBM PC, later with a hard drive added. Sysop/Co-Sysop of: Metal Shop Private, The Brewery, Quick Shop/Metal Shop AE, Whackoland, The Dark Tower, Digital ITS (proud of that one) and probably a few more I've forgotten about. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I started out in the BBS world in September of 1983 when a friend gave me numbers to different modems which included things to hack on as well as bulletin boards. I actually got my computer in late June of that year, but didn't understand the concept of the modem until that point. I got involved with David Lightman (314)'s board before it went up by beta-testing it for him at times and when he put it up, I ended up being user 2 and then soon after, co-sysop of The Dark Tower. It was there that my local notariety became strong and a few people from the nation started calling in. His board was very good with what he had and the little advertising that it got, but it eventually went down. It was at that point when I started getting around nationally and was able to make connections of my own. I put up Metal Shop: The Dark Tower Phase II a bit after because St. Louis totally lacked bulletin boards that dealt with hacking or phreaking. I advertised around the country and drew in quite a crowd. The board excelled with time to the point of having around 500 users when it got to be a security risk in my eyes and we put in the general password system (made by Cheap Shades, of course). Eventually, that crowd got weeded down to a lot fewer people and some time after that, I was hospitalized. After my release from the hospital, Cheap Shades and I (me on the ideas and Shades on the programming) created a modified version of WWIV BBS program to suit my wants/needs and it resembled the old Shop set-up. As time went on, it became a name of its own through the crowd that hung out on it as well as having Phrack Inc. as being based there. For more detailed explainations of how things came about and about a few things mentioned above, see the big history file in this issue of Phrack Inc. I've met a few members of the phreak/hack world including the following: Knight Lightning, Cheap Shades, Forest Ranger, The W(hack)o Cracko Bros., Dr. Forbin, Data Line, and Reverend Enge (all local to me), as well as Jester Sluggo, Blue Buccaneer, Phantom Phreaker, Doom Prophet, Bill from RNOC, Tuc, Dan The Operator, Lex Luthor, The Leftist, Sir Francis Drake, Loki, Disk Jockey, Control C, Synthetic Slug, Lucifer 666, Mad Hatter, Cutthroat, The Mad Hacker (219), Sir William, Dr. Cypher, Hatchet Molly, Bad Subscript, The Mentor, Cisban Evil Priest, Phrozen Ghost, Surfer Bob, Crimson Death (618), The Dictator, Doc Holiday (901), and The Ur-Vile. Some of the memorable phreak boards I was on (besides my own) included The Dark Tower, The Pipeline, Broadway Show, Zyolog, Stronghold East Elite, Stronghold North, Hell Phrozen Over, Private Sector, Pirate-80, Stalag 13, Lunatic Labs UnLtd., Quick Shop, Metal Shop Brewery, NetSys, The Private Connection, ShadowSpawn, RACS III, The Pearly Gates, Brainstorm Elite, Metalland North, The Alliance, Intergalactic Dismantling, Inc. (IDI), DUNE, Speed Demon Elite, The Abyss, MetroMedia/Danger Zone Private, The Matrix, Thieve's World, FreeWorld II, Flying Circus, Twilight Zone, Septic Tank, The Lost City of Atlantis, Phantasie Realm, CHAMAS, and probably a few others I forgot that were important. Certain knowledge I've gained over the years is attributed to various boards forementioned as well as people like Bill from RNOC, Phantom Phreaker, Doom Prophet, The Videosmith, and many others not to mention reading (a key part to learning technical things) and social engineering. I utterly hate working with computers for anything other than communicating with friends and occasionally word processing. Programming on them is the most repugnant thought in the world to me (no offense Shades!). I've really never been much for hacking at all, although I did gain a bit of an interest through the legitimate accounts I gained on systems such as NetSys run by Terminus in Maryland. Hacking was never really much for me (besides looking at things on dull systems that were totally useless) when I first got the modem. Now that I'm at college and have access to it, I'm learning VM/CMS a bit so that I can use Bitnet and work through/with it. I attended and had a part in organizing both SummerCon '87 and PartyCon '87 (very much in SummerCon and very little in PartyCon). I also attended SummerCon '88 for a little while on each of the days except Sunday. I was supposed to be on the NEW TAP staff, run by the W(hack)o Cracko Bros. as well as being on the staff of Telecomputist (which sponsored SummerCon '87) and doing all but writing articles for Phrack Inc. Other than that, I'm not terribly involved with phreaker/hacker media. The only group I was ever in was The 2600 Club! which later revised into The NEW 2600 Club! which was just as ignorant with more interesting names but about an equal participation in anything. I learned I was able to advance through the phreak world without the booster of a club besides using my board as a reference. I didn't need to rely on the work of others. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Interests: Telecommunications (basically phreaking knowledge-wise now), music (heavy metal of all sorts plus so much more and playing electric guitar), fraternity life (party), women (white ones, blond, with blue eyes, and NO FAT CHICKS! Namely, Kimberly), driving (and one day, I'll drive that fucking DeLorean!) Taran's Favorite Things ----------------------- Women: Kimberly (see above...I went all out!) Cars: Lamborghini Contachs, DeLoreans, Lotuses, Vectors, etc. Foods: NO VEGETABLES! Music: Heavy metal, Pink Floyd, classic rock. Leisure: Partying, playing guitar, spending time with the woman. Alcoholic fun: Tequila shots, Rum & Coke, good beer (pretty much anything), Long Island Tea, and those funky teas you find at college parties in garbage cans lined with garbage bags (hmm!) Most Memorable Experiences -------------------------- Forest Ranger's conferences (what would YOU do for a Klondike Bar at 3am?). Car accident with Jester Sluggo as well as almost a 2nd time afterwards (keep drinking!). Bell Shock Force conferences (yes ma'am, I'm sorry but you'll just have to cut those wires) Getting busted in late May '87 (don't try it, it ain't fun). SummerCon '87 (a better party than PartyCon '87, met a lot of great people). PartyCon '87 (a lot of fun, but too unorganized although I met a few more people that I had wanted to). SummerCon '88 (wait, did I attend that???). Some People to Mention ---------------------- Knight Lightning (my right hand man; although he wasn't terribly knowledgeable, he was always there and trying to help out and still is!|) David Lightman 314 (for allowing me to use his program to start what turned out to be Metal Shop Private) Man-Tooth (my original 2nd co-sysop next to KL who drove me down to David Lightman's house in South-fucking-County St. Louis for 30 minutes) Dr. Forbin/Mr. Modem (for re-transferring the original program after something got fucked after the ride to South-fucking-County) Forest Ranger (wild man, can't say much about him without getting hurt|) Phantom Phreaker (we found ya for 2600 Club and you excelled far beyond any of the rest of us in the club did, plus you helped my board immensely) Barbie Doll (for suggesting the idea of Phrack Inc. in different words even if nobody knows what or who you were or where you were from) The W(hack)o Cracko Bros. (what a couple of idiots) Oryan Quest (never has there been as bad a pest as this man, but he turned out to be human Mexican, but human| after we were both busted, interestingly enough) Lex Luthor (for freaking me out when he first called my board and contributing a bit here and there) Capt. Hook (taught me a bit about social engineering here and there and introduced me to a few people as well as helping out a couple of times) Cheap Shades (what would Metal Shop have been without the programming mastery of this individual; my left hand man and great friend as well) Tuc (generally a good friend and historical reference as well as creating the Pro-Phile that I based the rest of them on) Bill from RNOC (another one of my best friends who is the smartest person potentially, and definitely the smartest when it comes to phreaking and hacking put together; a great source of information, and one of the most hilarious people I know) Olorin The White (if this guy puts me in his group one more time, I'm gonna kill him!) Inside Jokes ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mary likes corn. Are you stupid (corn, cheese, free)? Supervisors at Pizza Hut? Essscuse me Mr. Corley, but I was juss lookin' fo sum bonez...I'm Bosco.

We're hopping on a plane now and coming to Maryland to kick your ass! For $20 I'll sell you 5 lbs. of baking soda. Doesn't he look like The Fly? You almost just hit the car again! Keep drinking!

"BIOC Agent 003 was arrested today for stamping his name on his RA's forehead." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm against pretty much all forms of fraud now that I've spent the night in jail, the summer of '87 in pain and waiting, and will spend the next 3 years of my life on probation. I'm not informing to anyone about anything if you have thoughts about that statement, but I have no part in anything fraudulent. I've always thought that carding was the most stupid crime connected with computers and that it's too risky to be worth it in the end. I hope that the future phreaks and hackers keep around and retain what's been built up over the many years since long before I'd heard of phreaking or hacking. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I hope you enjoyed this file. Although I had at one time intended on this being my last Pro-Phile, it's actually the first of many to come...And now for the regularly taken poll from all interviewees. Of the general population of phreaks you have met, would you consider most phreaks, if any, to be computer geeks? Generally, the cool ones aren't, but of course, in every large group of people, you'll probably find a few geeks here and there. Thanks for your time, Randy. No problem, Randy.

There were a few more things like the format on the upper part of the screen which was windowed off from what was happening on the board which contained the on-line user's information and other things only the sysop would see, but nothing about it was too interesting. I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the things contained on what used to be my board, and I hope you were both suprised and let down at the same time. That's the way it should be because it was, as I so often said, over-rated. Anyway, I'd like to acknowledge the fact that both Control C and The Mad Hacker were going to run Metal Shop Private after my problems arose, but Control C had some problems of his own and after he got the program, he lost it and The Mad Hacker would have run it, but I received notice about something concerning the board which convinced me to keep it down forever. It's all still intact like I said, but it's probably just going to sit on my hard drive until my father needs more room on the hard drive for Lotus 1-2-3 or something and it'll get formatted over. Oh, one last note: For those of you who thought you were hackers and attempted to get my password (which never happened in the history of the board), it was "ME?CRAZY", my phone number was MSP-314-SLAY, and the secondary password necessary to log on as a sysop remotely was "LASHING."

Anyhow, My Easter Sunday went pretty well, I awoke at about 10am with the sun streaming through the window and trying to make its way through the beer tower. I rolled over to the sound of the ocean waves hitting the coast. I got up opened one of last nights beers and walked out onto the balcony intern seeing a great view of Daytona Beach.

I can just see it now: "Unix Hacking - Subop: Solid State." Crax and I were talking about scams today and we came across an interesting topic. It seems that if someone orders something to you in your name (that you didnt pay for) you can keep it, unless the company decides to pay for its return or gets it back theirselves. I can understand that most people are not going to pay to have something shipped back to a company but the idea of "keeping it" doesnt sound right.

I had a hum on my phone line a while back and I had Bell check it out and run some line check stuff and then it went away, perhaps Taran should do the same. :Knight Lightning 10/100: Its a DNR d00d11!!10 Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 9:31 pm Thu Apr 30, 1987 Anyway, my connections to MSP are just fine. The only board I have problems with is Phantasie Realm. Have a question for anyone who grows dope. Someone told me that the pigs have some kind of radar that they use when flying over the woods, fields..etc, that supposedly pick up plants that are growing less than two feet from each other. I dont see how this is possibly at all, but its kind of scary. Also, can anyone give me some good ideas on how to grow it. I already have about 50 planted that are coming up quite well (Im in the money...!) and I use that shit they put on fields for fertilizer. I also germinate my seeds by putting them in wet paper towels in a dark place for a few days before planting them (sprouts up), about 2 inchs deep in garden soil (that shit you buy at k-mart thats supposed to be good dirt). That was a lame question, but I need to know... Speaking of Phantasie Realm, we changed the format for the last time and it looks good. New advanced subs, killed all the assholes, lowe red the access of all the non-contributers, got plenty of files/space, and lots of msgs and discussions. Feel free to call and post the around: (313)641-9649 New: CANON -J 11/100: Dope sniffing Name: The Scanner 20 Date: 8:14 am Fri May 01, 1987 The plane radar idea could have some truth to it. I mean it is very possible . They use planes to control our traffic speed also. I'm sure you have all seen those depth finder things on boats and stuff. Those things can tell you almost exactly whats underneath. Probably the same type of gadget the plane would use. Sounds possible to me. _-The Scanner 12/100: Knowing Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 4:13 pm Fri May 01, 1987 Knowing the cops, they probably do have things like that, so they can go out and waste more money in the name of stupid bandwagoning tactics a la Ron and Nancy Reagan, William Bennett, Rehnquest and O'Connor (the latter two were appointed Supreme Court justices, screened by Ronald Reagan and Edwin Meese to make sure they were conservative and conformist enough to the rest of the senile warmonger's administration). Mor e and more money is being wasted in the name of their fucking law and order, their fucking 'Christianity', self righteousness, conservative viewpoints that deny people's civil rights (womens right to an Abortion, Roe Vs Wade decision, the firing of 1/2 of the Civil Rights Commission and probably replacing them with Reagan Lovers, and more). Now the cops will go to exteme lengths (this radar shit and Paraquat poisoning) to make sure that they can have their fucking recreational drugs which are perfectly legal while condemning us as criminals for engaging in other recreational drugs that are less harmful (but ILLEGAL of course, it makes all the difference. Laws are always right and fair, and manipulative enough by those in power as a small child would play with Ronald Reagan's shit, smearing it over the constitution). I can see them also having orgasms and myocardial infarctions when they find plants they think are cannibussativa, only to find out they are sewer weeds, things growing from flowing human waste in fields. 13/100: well... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 8:02 pm Fri May 01, 1987 Yes, well, (watch this tie-in), to show your beliefes ccall the Libertarian BBs in San Jose, CA at: (408) 243-1933 Its a FIDO system run by the Libertarian Party, for those of you who don't know the LP is one of the more popular third parties and has a very laissez faire platform, one main tenet being legalization of victemless crimes. SO call it. sfd /l 14/100: radar Name: The Prophet 23 Date: 4:15 am Sat May 02, 1987 I kind of find the radar idea a bit spaced out... After all, if it picked up pot plants less than 2 feet apart, it would pick up damned near every thing else less than 2 feet apart. In decent sized forest, this could amount to quite a bit of garbage... weeds, small trees, etc. The police DO ariel searches, but I believe (though I'm not sure) that they do it by sight. They usually do this, though, over state- and company- owned land, as most dope-farmers, for some reason, don't own their own forest land. I know for a fact that in my area, they do occasional air searches over some forest land owned by a paper company, but they don't search the forest behind my house owned by my grandfather (otherwise I would be in or under a jail cell now). -TP 15/100: I agree... Name: Cat Man 12 Date: 3:45 pm Sat May 02, 1987 The guy (Prophet) is really right on this one...I've never heard of such crazy shit as police radar picking up plants that are 2 feet apart! And he's going to grow the stuff thinking shit like this (?). The one thing to be careful of are pirhanas (people who at harvest time go looking for huge fields of pot). cat man 16/100: I dunno. Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 1:15 am Sun May 03, 1987 I dont really know how it would be possible, but theres still that chance. Still no answers on my last question??? Whats the best way to grow it?

Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 2:15 am Sun May 03, 1987 "High Times" magazine, the best information for any home grower, they have monthly sections on indoor and outdoor gardens, for anyone from the first time grower, to the expert, plus the ads can help you find the necessary stuff. -The Disk Jockey 18/100: do-it-yourself Name: The Prophet 23 Date: 3:03 am Sun May 03, 1987 You don't have to use fertilizer, but the pot will be weak if it's undernourished. Another thing to remember is not to({use too much fertilizer. Actually, marijuana is a pretty tough plant, and doesn't really require a great deal of care. Just water them daily, and plant them somewhere where they can get plenty of sunlight. -TP 19/100: Nameo Changeo Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 4:06 pm Sun May 03, 1987 This is bullshit, what is going on here!? Next thing you know we will have a subboard called "Better Drugs And Gardens." First of all this police drug radar is the most amazing piece of trash gossip I have ever heard. Police would have better things to do than go through back yards with plant radar. I mean any two objects within 2 feet of each other set it off... yeah right. What about patio furniture, what about a backyard grill and gas tank? What about shrubs or trees? Whoever came up with this one must have been ON DRUGS himself at the time. :Knight Lightning 20/100: I wouldn't put it past them. Name: Thomas Covenant 84 Date: 8:13 pm Sun May 03, 1987 Although it does sound 99.99% wrong, that's just the sort of thing the cops would come up with to act as a deterrent against life. EEEGg. Two notes of addt'l interest: -:1- In Virgina Beach, home of the 700 club, it is illegal to imbibe alcohol outdoors. So, if someone was having a beer in his fenced in yard, someone else could call the cops and say "There's a man drinking beer in his backyard. Please hurry!" and the cops could come and cart him away. -:2- The latest issue of OMNI has a very fascinating article about the US. Military and how they are linked with US communications services (or would like to be). Needless to say, you should read it. -:3- OK, so I forgot one (or I can't count. You be the judge). The latest issue of RIP is the Rock Censorship Issue, and has even MORE fascinating articles on the PMRC, the Back In Control punk/metal deprogramming center, and much much more. Again, you should read it. Everytime I read something like this, I go out to the fields and have a dandelion break. I can't believe stuff like this can happen in America. 21/100: excuse me Name: Lucifer 666 43 Date: 11:42 pm Sun May 03, 1987 but my mother was having some trouble growing her geraniums....now if I don't use fertilizer will they die... I hear that the forest preserve can tell huge fields of geraniums if the plants are less than 2 feet apart... usually we plant petunias...but the "sailfish" get them... These are the people that rip out huge fields of petunias around blooming time. L666 22/100: Censorship Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 12:58 am Mon May 04, 1987 Ok, Thomas Cov, that message you left about Vigriania Beach in Va looked like it came from thrasher magainze, as skateboard magazine that I read often. They had an article abou a ramp in VA beach called Mt. Trashmore. Are there any skaters on here? I know Quest says he skates... Phantom Oh yeah I also have that new issue or rip, actually it's DP's but I read it today about the cencorship. Oh, another thing, I read that MCA of he Beastie Boyz died from an OD. I don't know if it's true or a rurmor.... Phantom (oh god, I just read this post and I have to use the almighty cop-out, ' I am fucked up' which is true rnight now) 23/100: Dope and The Single Woman... Name: The Mad Hacker 47 Date: 1:27 am Mon May 04, 1987 Well, I find it very hard to believe that someone could detect such plants growing so closely together. Secondly, for the outdoor Dope Grower, Simply, bury some seeds and forget them for a few months. If You plan on indoor growing, You have to understand that Dope is a Weed, so that they don't really need sunlight, and would grow in virtually any environment. If you want an indoor garden, spend a few bucks and get a hydrpod setup(Articles in High-Times) and buy a "Grow and Show" light. I have heard that if you crush up Quaaludes and use them as fertalizer, you will come out with some heavy dope. Just remember that germination is a BIG key in getting something decent. Yes, I have grown some in my basement, it wasn't THAT good, but the price was right..... The Mad Hacker 24/100: Dope Name: Icarus 15 Date: 2:34 am Mon May 04, 1987 Cannabis (sp?) is a weed and can grow anywhere. However for the best potency, good sunlight, water, and fertilizer is needed. Soaking the seeds for a few days in drenched paper is good before planting, just to get the sprouts going. I don't know about that plant detection nonsense, but I do know that you can get capital punishment for selling pot in school. (Thanks Nancy, you dragon-witch) The other day, I read on the back of a coffee can, "Say no to drugs." What hypocrosy, no? Caffeine is a much more abused drug and more addictive (according to many sources), than a pure 100% natural bowl of grade-a herb. Everything is a drug in America:Nicotene, caffeine, money, power, etc.. (uh oh, getting metaphorical here) I must stop rambling and get some sleep. it is 3:32am and I have one of the few last days of fucking around in senior year to wake up for tomorrow. Ic 25/100: Hmmm.... Name: Slave Driver 58 Date: 9:43 am Mon May 04, 1987 Considering police radar detects the speed of moving objects, the same technique is used for alarm systems, it doesnt care about the speed though, just if something is moving, thats why radar detectors often go off around stores, I dont know how it would detect plants two feet apart. What do they set the PSD plant spacing detector to 2 feet? Or do the plants run around when noone is looking? Does a tree that falls in a forest with noone to hear it or record it mae any noise? Why can you see? How does a can opener work? What good is school? Does Ron fuck the dragon-lady? These are all questions of the mind.... doodoo--doodoo-doodoo-doodoo twilight zone music^^^ Steve but why? Driver 26/100: Say what? Name: Cap'N Crax 10 Date: 3:19 am Tue May 05, 1987 Did someone say capital punishment for selling pot in school? Jeezus! Anyway, police can detect pot, but not with radar. They can detect it (even at night), actually, especially at night, by it's infrared heat signature. They have some sort of device like that... I don't quite remember where this info came from, but it was in print, and i assume it to be reliable, as it is quite possible, and makes more sense than plant radar. Haha...

Usually what they did where I was living was just cruise over the mountians/wooded areas, and If youveever seen a pot plant, usually the color gives them away.. I have 12 plants in my closet, each about 1' 1/2" tall, which I have had 1 1/2 months... Use miracle gro fertilizer. this is best, because it wont burn the plants, as you cannot use too much.. also, you definetly dont want to get males and females mixed up. the females will have a short growth at the bottom of the stem as they mature, which, when broken off will grow right back where it was. I have heard of people grafting hops onto plants, and this served an excellent disguise, but where can ya get hops?? p.s. call this new bbs if ya get a chance..hack/phreak/special interest/g-files, and more.. 305-480-9971 initial login pw= CSC Leftist 33/100: Quotes....

Caffeien, Nicotine, and many other drugs are harmful to people, yet legal and making money for businesses/government. A local pastor is going after 'porn' menace in the fashion of Edwin Meese, our Wedtech, corporate and close minded Attorney General. Why have such small, harmless things become a scapegoat bby the fucking religious fanatics and power hungry hipocrites as the problem of society? Why don't they direct their time and attention to something more worthhile? Why not go after racism, sexism, and prejudices of all types? Bad education systems? Murder, violence, War? NO, we are christians (paycheck code word), and everything we do is Ok with a creation of our society, but hen it is time to kill for our country, well, we can become a christian again after we have killed for a deceptionist government. Meese is going to be in St. Louis tomorrow talking on abortion. 20 dollars for their fucking dinner, maybe they'll be eating government experiments tht flopped in nuclear and chemical warfare projects. Abortion should be a choice..I agree that it is bad, but the alternatives can be worse. If you take away the people's choice then what do you have? Guess what I'm a communist now because I am a member of the Freeze/Sane movement, ha. Oh well I'm rambling and bitching. 'The drugs we're fed to make us like it are God (TM) and Country with a bang.

Do you wear jams and surfer clothes, or are you a generally 'normal' looking skater? Around here the skaters are mostly dicks they think they are cool because they can do a 1 inch ollie, and a lot of them brag and lie about their ability. I'm concerned for our countries future. Right-wingers and conservatives are fucking up everything, I'm so sick of hearing about their bullshit, cencorship, and the like. Some right winger said something along the lines of 'When a student picks up a math book, he reads that there are no absolutes. The next thing you know, he turns to crime and drugs.' Now, that takes the cake for being the most foolish, scatterbrained, lame attempt to support your views. But, they have the money, funded by Falwell and Robertson, who dupe consumers into sending them money so they will 'go to heaven' and have 'the lord's blessing'. 'Most people are assholes' (name of a tour by some punk band, can't remember the name.) Oh yesterday I picked up a math book and read that x=0. Well, since x=0, then crime is cool, and so is drugs. (This supports my earlier paragraph) Phantom PS-Oh yeah, to stretch this thing out even more (this post), I'll just say that the Suicidal Tendencies concert in St. Louis a few weeks ago was pretty cool.

Anyway, we were watching a film in psycology last week where the question of who has the most primary responsibilty to be careful about birth control, the guy or the girl. One guy said the girl because after all if she doesn't, she is the one getting pregnant. A girl then said that he was an asshole for saying that. What do you think? :Knight Lightning 39/100: Le Dope...(Male And Female) Name: The Mad Hacker 47 Date: 11:51 pm Thu May 07, 1987 The only difference between Male and Female Plants is that Female PLants yield a great deal more seeds than the male ones(Makes sense). Dealers usually try to stay away from the female plants due to the "More Seeds, Less Pot" Philosophy. Potency should still be the same, though.

Give me a fucking break Ronnie! This country is run by assholes for assholes because we are falling for this shit. Nancy thinks she's a fucking "vigilante" combatting her war on drugs. Fuck her and her stupid senile old jackass husband. Think about it....This country raped our environment for bucks for a few mogul's pockets. Ron is a puppet for these war-mongering quadrillionaires who are the true rulers of our country. No other president would EVER have gotten away with what Ronnie did.

The buds of the female plant are much stronger than those of the male plant. By the way, who uploaded the file, "drug800s.txt", what the hell are those pills being sold (never heard of D&E's before...), and what's the address to order them? Anyone who wants to know where the country's heading in the future need do nothing more than look at the heart of the Southern Baptist Bible Belt, North Carolina. The new obscenity law states that "mature adults have no right to possess obscene material". X-rated movies are now illegal here, and possession of an obscene magazine, even if you only read it in the privacy of your own home and are over 21, is punishable by a heavy jail sentence and fine. -TP 43/100: D&E.... Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 6:46 am Fri May 08, 1987 D&E is based in New Jersey, and their ad can be found in any High Times.... I have 2 bottles of stimulants that I got from them, and their yours if you want them....one is a bottle of "20-20's" and the others are "357's", I used to use them when I'd play tennis to keep a steady, strong game. Now they just make my stomach hurt like hell. You can get them on your (or someone's) V/MC, and they are like $6/100. -The Disk Jockey 44/100: Better Drugs & Gardens Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 7:51 am Fri May 08, 1987 Er yeah this is our new subboard check out 6. It seemed like a popular topic with you guys. :Knight Lightning 45/100: well... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 6:22 pm Fri May 08, 1987 Oh what fun! Rag on Reagun, Call him names, Say they suck, bitch alot... Oh wow how keen... Can YOU guess whats coming next? 'CUT THE CRAP' AND *DO* SOMETHING! My god, I just love to see all these phreaks post about how terrible the right wing is and how they should all go to hell and they sound real tough but 'Lets take a look at the record'. Remember the Falwell Game? And then the Pat Robertson game? It was where you dialed Fallwell or Pat's 800 and then hung up after a couple seconds, making them have to pay a $1 or so. Phreaks were the perfect people to do it, programs + knowledge, but NOOOOOO, a few did it for a couple of days but they, hell YOU, were tooo fucking lazy to actually do shit. It was people who had to hand dial all the time who did 90% of it. What politial commitment. Oh yeah, when Libya was bombed the outrage on phreak boards was just tremendous, why I think I saw 1 post against it. Its not until they start doing something that directly affects you (drugs, etc) that you get off your ass. Between computers and phones, yes phreaks could be somewhat of a force, but there not. sfd 46/100: Are you ever happy? Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 2:13 am Sat May 09, 1987 I don't understand why you never say anything good, Drake.. I mean, at least the users here are somewhat (even if just a little) conscious of what is going on...you can't expect everyone to be totally involved in government, I mean if they do THAT, then they will probably start thinking like a politician, and we don't need any more of that. Oh, also Drake, do you ever do anything constructive, like you said in your post? I'm not trying to argue (I hope you see that) but would like to hear what action you take on some of the issues of our society (our society, our society, what a drag -Subhumans) Phantom 47/100: well... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 6:10 pm Sat May 09, 1987 What? Oh my god! Is it true?! Yes, after many many posts of bitching and whining on this board I actually got a RESPONSE! GASP! Why I feel positivly unignored... OK, now a response from me would be the normal thing to do now and Im a normal sorta guy so... What do I do 'constructive'? I call up my congressman, I write my congressman/representatives. Your normal stuff. Then, I go to demonstrations, try to contribute to alternative newspapers, draw/write/paint/scriblle thousands of anarchy symbols around the bay area to 'spread the word'. I try to keep in contact with other radical organisations to contribute my time etc. Example I have done volunteer work for a small communist political party. I could go on, but certainly not for long enough. I am not exempt from my own criticism in that I am as lazy as the next guy. But I *TRY* harder. hee. sfd 48/100: Missing the question Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 9:39 am Sun May 10, 1987 But Drake, have you actually called up your congressman or rep or written them or been to demostrations? Now whats this about supporting communist political parties? :Knight Lightning 49/100: Dont ever... Name: Slave Driver 58 Date: 1:54 pm Sun May 10, 1987 Expect to get a job with the government, now that you have said that... Sd 50/100: Hmm.. Name: Doom Prophet 21 I must admit, I have never written my congressman. I have talked to the police and authorities about certain laws and policies, and I have pledged some support and volunteered to help a political anti-war movement here in St. Louis. I try to make people aware of what the government is doing.. I read quite a bit on things like that (In mainstream papers and underground alternatives like Socialist Labor Party newsletter,SANE mag, The St. Louis Arms Freeze forecast letter, People for the American Way, etc.). However I can't say that I am really active in politics though.. Oh, I also sent some cards in to Reagan opposing censorship movements, with some signatures from my school. Wee, big deal right? Later. Doom 51/100: WELL... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 11:58 pm Sun May 10, 1987 ACTUALLY I WASN'T PLANNING ON GETTING A JOB WITH THE GOVERMENT... And KL, that (calling congressman, etc) was a list of what I have done...what did you think it was? Your confuuuusing me...whine Yeah being aware is definetly important ('The revoluion begins within' and all that)... try to read a equal amount of right wing & left wing periodicals so that I dont get locked into one viewpoint on an issue. But being nformed and not doing anything is no better then being totaly apathetic. sfd 52/100: Phrack Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 6:44 pm Mon May 11, 1987 We could unite the entire phreak community through Phrack as aq huge political party. Unfortunately, the majority of the phreak/hack world can't even vote, and currently that includes myself. Also, we would never have enough support in any one are to win any form of election but a lobbyist organization seems feasible. But you all know as well as I do that this will NEVER happen. So, anyway in general with the Class of '87 graduating in less than a month, who feels the phreak hack world is going to suffer greatly? :Knight Lightning 53/100: Politics Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 4:57 pm Tue May 12, 1987 Well, who knows. I'm sure there will always be good phreaks around. I will be doing less of course (Graduation, College, Work, etc) but that's no big loss. About political classifications, I liked the Nolan chart much better than traditional Left-Right wing grouping. Most people take left to mean communist and opposed to personal freedom. Some of the more famous left wing (radicals) are the Black Panthers from the late sixties, and others that I won't mention. Right wing conservative policies generally seem to be more realistic (but of course because they side with the current system and don't support radical change as left wing does). I think we do need change to prevent America from becoming a cesspool of violence, money, racism, and exploitation of both people and the environment (it's like that now though depending upon your viewpoint). It's a difficult question, because the root of the system is people-people with stubborn entrenched attitudes. How are we going to change the entire system if we can't change ourselves and others around us? Impose a law? That would be fascist. In my opinion, freedom of expression and action should be allowed so long as it's not causing harm or violence toward the innocent (or the not so innocent). The Libertarian party summed it up quite well..but a political party doesn't make a perfect system. To change the topic slightly, what do you feel about our actions (fraud, breaking and entering, etc) as far as morality (flexible and sometimes useless term) and justice? (That sounds corny but I don't know how else to word it). Doom 54/100: We The People Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 8:15 pm Tue May 12, 1987 Yeah well, what I was trying to say is that with college in the fall and the quite often occurence of 950 blocking from college campuses, a new area to have to scan for Telenet dialups or whatever and in general, I fell that as a whole, the phreak community will suffer greatly. Lets face it, there will continue to be a phreak community, but as I see it, today's phreaks, specifically those on this system or Catch have reached the highest plateau in the area of knowledge ever in the history of our community. This is not to say that it will never be surpassed, but somehow with more and more security involving itself in our affairs and the decline of interest I feel that this is the golden age and it will start to fall back until a new era begins many years from now. The community will continue to exist no matter what, even if for no better reason than the rodent wares kids or the habitual code abusers. As far as morality, I don't feel too concerned about it although I do believe it to be wrong. I try not to think about it too much. However, when the government or Reagan can make deals with terrorist and lose millions of dollars or throw it away, I don't feel to guilty about making illegal calls. Its all in how you rationalize it. :Knight Lightning 55/100: KL.... Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 6:42 am Wed May 13, 1987 Gee....isn't speeding illigal too? Like you said, it's all relative, but can you remember making your first code call? It's like you hang up, and your waiting for the phone to ring with someone saying "Your busted......" I guess its all a form of de-sensitizing, after a while, you really ignore or don't realize the extent of the illigal-ness of the activity that you are doing. KL-I'm still working on that "Laws of preaking....." stuff that we talked about, while reading over old notes, etc, it can make you realize what you are "up against" if you are caught. Basically, your screwed if an adult. For the most part you are seeing about 30 days jail time, full restitution, and assorted court costs. Not a good time. I was wasted a few nights ago and debated calling up a LD company and telling them that I had hacked EVERY code they had, and would sell them the code file for $1000, else turn the file public. Wonder what they would do? I sure wouldn't want to be the one at the bank cashing the check, extorsion (sp?) is pretty big time stuff.... -The Disk Jockey 56/100: General Nonsense. Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 8:29 am Wed May 13, 1987 Face it folks. Were heading down the long road to communism. Our leaders are pretty much all corrupt. I think our country stinks. And I think in a few years the "kiddies" will feel the same. Face it, we talk about anti-drug bullshit, and all this anti-that and anti-this, but our leaders are setting a great example to the future leaders of our country, arent they? This country is headed anywhere but uphill, and I hope I die before it all falls to peices. Im old enough to vote, but chose not to and never will. I dont care about politics even though I should. Id rather not take a small part in the downfall of the good ole US of A. I dont follow politics, and I dont watch ..(sorry, double cr) the news. Why? Because its all BAD thats why. Anyway, I hope to enjoy my life to the fullest without worrying about stupid shit, like Reagan and his scams. One thing that does piss me off is this big drug war. Its alot of nonsense if you ask me. The people that end up fucking up there lives are the people who have no sense and get burnt on heavy drugs (Coke, LSD...etc) and they end up either dead, dying, fucked up or trying to rebuild there lives. Needless to say, they forgot about having a good time. They got addicted. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Cmon folks, wake up...whats life about? Having a good time and living the fullest and richest (I sound like an ad for Folgers) life you possibly can Killing yourself isnt the answer. I know, Im rambling on. Oh well. About this phreak war thing, we all know its bullshit. Ifthe phreaks did unite (something pretty much impossible - will never happen), who do you think would win? The government or the phreaks? Even if we didnt get caught, we would still lose. The puppet-masters have our senile president right where they want him, and no matter who does what, they can keep them there for as long as they wish. (At least til the end of his term, anyway). Its a suicide mission. It cant be won. No one will ever be powerful enough to take on our government. No one but non-americans would aid him, and theres too many people afraid of the "bomb" for that too happen. So all we could do is piss them off, thus giving them an even better reason to exterminate us all. Anyway, thats about all I have to say on the matter(s). Sure Im for the American Way. Its the people who are trying to fuck it up for all of us that I dont like... -J 57/100: WELL... Name: <<< Sir Francis Drake 56 >>> Date: 4:22 pm Wed May 13, 1987 lets see... a) Yeah KL, after this year there will be a 'drop' in the phreak scene as lots of people go off to college but after awhile new phreaks will come to replace them. This certainly isnt 'The Golden Age of phreaking'. Wait until the who country is tied into a network, when EVERYTHING is on computers, and the phone system connects the whole world in a standardised way. THAT will be the 'golden age'. b) EJ, the people who 'are trying to fuck it up' are the people who are too fucking lazy to get involved.... sfd 58/100: Golden Age Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 5:34 pm Wed May 13, 1987 Actually Sfd, this is the Golden Age, becuae by the time the whole world is networked like you said, there will be so much security and tracing will be a standard feature and we will be even more stuck than ever before. EJ, you can't solve a problem by ignoring it. Not voting is stupid unless you don't know how to vote. That is you don't know which side is more worthy (if any) of your vote. Phreaks as a force? Make a great movie, but it'll never ever happen. :Knight Lightning 59/100: KL...... Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 7:59 pm Wed May 13, 1987 ...and any other St. Louis locals, why don't you invite some (actually lots) or chicks to come to the party part of this convention? EVERYBODY likes hotel parties, I've had a few in Kansas City at the Embassy Suits that were secondto (to) none! Besides, not all of us are gonna get off on B-Way..... I want to get something out of this trip besides hung over..... I'll show them (the girls) my Cosmos manuals and impress them! Ya, right..... 60/100: Well Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 10:45 pm Wed May 13, 1987 Things would definately get out of hand if we did that. I mean the word would spread and then the whole idea of having a phreak con would be gone. Plus we would definately end up being thrown out. Still, anyone else have any input on this? :Knight Lightning 61/100: getting back to... Name: Lex Luthor 36 Date: 10:02 am Fri May 15, 1987 Getting back to that "golden age" deal, well I am sure there will be a time when more and more things will be networked, but saying they will have all this security and tracing shit is ridiculous. There will always be bugs and holes to be exploited, and security always comes last for everything. The only people who think security should come first are the ones whose job is security. Making products, consulting, etc. Everyone else puts security low on the list. It will probably remain that way indefinitely. Look at the show Max Headroom. I think it is one of the best shows on TV. A lot of people don't like it. They don't understand it. Sure some things are a bit ridiculous like the old-style typewriter keys used for computer keyboards, but basically the show is quite interesting. It appears that just about everything in existance is networked in some way to some central processor. Every building, and everything within those buildings are networked. Ang gaining access to the network, allows you to gain access to just about anything, assuming you can defeat any security involved. I like the show mainly due to the security and insecurity involved. They are constantly breaking the security on everything. The show probably is based on some variation of the future, and it does show that no matter how sophisticated things get, there always will be ways around it. Having the ability to defeat these controls, allows you to have control over your own destiny as far as concepts of 'big brother' are concerned. If the government turned into the big brother depicted in 1984, I am sure those "good enough" would not be as affected. They would simply find ways to get around controls and modify or neutralize anything that was threating to them. Since everyone has been rambling, I thought I would ramble some too. 62/100: SFD's Comments Name: Lotus 38 Date: 1:40 pm Fri May 15, 1987 I also have to disagree with your first comment. Just because everyone is going to college does not mean we will loose that many people. When I left about 2 years ago, I still tried to call here as much as I could. Taran (or Knight) did bring up a good point about college systems getting smarter but if you go to a college that is good enough to have phones in each of the dorms (or if you live in an apartment) then most of the time you don't have a thing to worry about. 63/100: well... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 11:16 pm Fri May 15, 1987 Actually, the idea of losing people due to college was KL's postulate... and I basicaly agree with it. Sure some people will keep being involved but most wont have the time, equipment, and the fact that they will no longer be treated as a minor by the law will act as a detriment. (no that sentence wasnt constructed right...) Yow Lex...Cyberpunk for ever...Speaking of which (this belongs on the phrack sub but Ill forget so...) would anybody be interested (besides me) if I somehow managed to interview William Gibson, author of Neuromancer & Count Zero, about what he thought the future of "computer crime" was? Make it into a file & put in in phrack. Well *I* think it would be cool. sfd 64/100: Dial 0 for harassment Name: Taran King 1 Date: 12:50 am Sat May 16, 1987 Ok, me and Bill are here right now on my 3-way with the 0perator. We had her connect us to 314-070-1000. Bill said that he was priveledged and that he had to speak to his brother in the post office. When we thought the 0perator had left the line, Bill proceded to simulate an 800 DA ring with his lips. When the operator came on, he asked for the first company with Banana in its name and we were given Banana Educational Software and cracked up. We were hooked up to a recording. After the recording said 800-328, the operator came on and said she was reporting this line. She said she has had previous accounts... The operator then paused and said, "Yes, yes I'd like a trace. The number is 314-432-0756, good you traced it." She then proceeded to access another loop and keep us on hold for several minutes. Oh, forgot a part. After she finally consented to connect the number, Bill said that she could go, and she says, "No, I want to hear this!" and then she became silent until she started being rude and decided that she was working for the FBI and set up a trace. ANYWAY, after being put on hold for a few minutes, she came back and we requested the supervisor and she wouldn't give her to us. We eventually got dropped. We couldn't even file a complaint because we didn't have her fargin' name. I say we kill her. I say we hang her, then we kill her. I say we tattoo her, then we scorch her, then we hang her, and THEN we kill her. I say you give her to me! -TK 65/100: The Modem World Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 9:44 am Sat May 16, 1987 Yes that is correct, as many of us get older, the laws surrounding us are due to change will will affect our outlook as to just how important the phreak/hack community really is to us. Some of the people that feel threatened may start paying for calls rather than phreak, but this then gets expensive. Furthermore, in college, there is most liklely little time for this. Now Lex may disagree becuase his exsperience may be a bit differenet, but he also takes anout a month or more off between calls here. In reference to Cheap Shades, he ran Metal Shop AE here in StL. Then off to college, he brought the computer and put up QuickShop. However, he had little time to use it and the necesssity to use his only voice line (the bbs line) came up more and more often. Eventually he just took it down and he doesn't call anywhere. I said that the class of 87 going to college would harm the phreak world, not destroy it and I still hold that opinion. :Knight Lightning 66/100: HBO Name: Lotus 38 Date: 11:04 pm Sat May 16, 1987 Did anyone happen to catch the HBO special about the Chicago trial? Geez, if that thing doesn't get you mad about cops and the political system in so me was (ie the system) I don't know what would. The interesting thing is that Hoffman is still out there fighting the causes. Does he still live in NY or what? 67/100: Abbie Name: Thomas Covenant 84 Date: 6:03 am Sun May 17, 1987 There was an article on him in PEOPLE a couple years back (5-7 years, maybe?) that told what he was doing currently. I have no idea on the situation today. I love selective memory! I can remember dumb things like that, but can't remember where I left my tie -- and I have to leave for work in 2 minutes! ARGH! 68/100: WELL... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 6:22 pm Mon May 18, 1987 Geez, Abbie has been in the news alot recently. He was arrested along with Amy Carter for trespassing on CIA property. When they went to court there defense was that they were breaking a law in order to stop a larger crime (which means it is legal, example a person runnin a red light to chase a bank robber or some such)...AND THEY WON! So basicaly the federal court admited that the CIA is breaking laws...A pity they dont fucking do something about it. But yeah, he's a great guy. sfd 69/100: Back to voting. Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 2:40 am Tue May 19, 1987 I hear, Im stupid for not voting, Im fucking up the world by not participating. I wonder if any of you voted for Raygun, eh? -J 70/100: Summercon. Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 5:54 am Tue May 19, 1987 Read my latest attempt at humor (if you can stomach it) on drive H. File is called ADVENTUR.TXT. Its actually called, Tales of Misadventure - Summercon. And while Im probably not a seer you will see my prediction of the adventures I'll have at Summercon. Lets hope not of it ever comes to pass. -J 71/100: Hoffman Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 6:52 pm Tue May 19, 1987 I think that Hoffman was charged with 'Disturbing a school' and disorderly conduct. Amy Carter supposedly sat down in front of a vehicle (a bus or an oinkmobile). It was on a universityy campus, not CIA property (unless they made that up recently). I followed it in the papers also, it was interesting to see something like that happen. The CIA have not stopped with Nicaragua, but now we have dragged Honduras, Mexico, Isreal, and other countries in our feud with the Sandinistas, along with CIA/DEA dealings involving drug smuggling to fund the Contras. While we're on this topic, I just read an article in Reader's Digest that basically called the nuke freeze movement communist and corruptive. He had some good points however, which only goes to show that both the U.S. and Russia are at fault in certain situations. The test ban breaking by Ronn ie was shitty though. All the true important details are underplayed anyway. Good day Doomy 72/100: Part II Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 10:39 pm Tue May 19, 1987 Will be up by the time you read this. If your are dreading Summercon this is what you can (not) look forward too. hehehe... -J 73/100: Part III Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 6:48 am Wed May 20, 1987 Well, (yet another msg) Part III is finished and up. The Summercon Saga is over. Im sure you'll be sickened and appalled, but that was the whole purpose wasnt it? How about "Summercon 2001"? -J 74/100: What the fuck.... Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 7:16 am Wed May 20, 1987 ....is the deal now? Goddamn Iraq "accidentlly" shoots a missle from a russian-made aircraft to an oil ship, owing the hull all to hell, their president says "It was a gastly accident" and when this ship was trying to call the US to ask permission to return fire, Congress was recessed, and Reagan was getting on a plane to go to Tennessee to talk to some fucking high school for thier commencment. 37 fucking people are dead at last count, and the only thing that Ron has to say is "We are going to have a complete investigation...." Right! The US is really beginning to look like saps to these fucking shit-head countries, and Ron's other comment was "Any action simular to that in the future will be delt with severly." What an asshole. -A pissed off Disk Jockey 75/100: Wimper.. Name: Ax Murderer 7 Date: 5:41 pm Wed May 20, 1987 Yeah, while he's getting stiff talking to a group of high schooler's, men are dying. SUUUURE! It was an accident. Just like it was an accident when he bombed Libya...Sure. I think we should have at least fired back. Reagan always seems to wimp out on some. He is better than any other we've had, but please! Ax Murderer 76/100: well... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 6:22 pm Wed May 20, 1987 Aurgh, just when I was begining to think that MSP users were not Reagan lobotomized zombies the old "Dont let those little countries push us around, we should nuke 'em into oblivion" comes back. Yucky. First of all DJ, I heard the plane that shot the french missle at our ship was either a) french or b) american (phantom)...So lets not do a "god damned russians are behind everything" Maby it was sorta silly having the ship being there in the first place ya know? (Yeah doomy, it was on Amy Carters school campus but it was the CIA recruiting center on it where the demonstration took place) sfd 77/100: well Name: Lex Luthor 36 Date: 5:20 pm Thu May 21, 1987 No matter what America does, we would/will be criticsized. If we retaliated about the iraq incident we would be bullies again. If we didn't (we didn't as you know) then we will be too soft. Its a no win situation. When we bombed libya we were bullies. But if we didn't we would be wimps. Its bullshit. Damned if we do and Damned if we don't. 78/100: Bombing Name: The Sensei 18 Date: 6:21 pm Thu May 21, 1987 The Iraq accident may be real. The ship didn't have any defences ready. Now they tell us it was 2 assault missiles. There is not much Reagan can do. He can't punish them, they get nothin g major from us. Reagan made a good decision on the Libyan deal, he's don e his job. How many terrorist have screwed with Americans lately? Not many. Ts 79/100: Whoa! Name: Cheap Shades 3 Date: 1:38 am Fri May 22, 1987 First of all accidental or not, it shouldn't have happened. Secondly the captain of the ship did have permision to fight back. It was under attack. The captain just didn't switch from automatic to manual soon enough to shoot anything. Thirdly, the plane was American made and the missle was French (like SFD said), they have that shit because we support Iraq's side in this Iraq vs Iran war. We could easily punish Iraq for what they did but then we'd lose our initial investment in their struggle. Later Shades' $0.02 80/100: DIS Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 6:35 am Fri May 22, 1987 Hmm..on Libya, the press releases from the White House were lies. Khadafy didn't threaten us with further terrorism, the U.S. used his country for a scapegoat for the American people. However, the disinformation was vastly underplayed in the very same news we were brainwashed with. A lot of papers and news media is owned by large corporations. Do you want the businesses that caused an invasion of Cuba in this century to put thoughts into your head? So the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in 79. But of equal tyranny was thte U.S. foreign policy toward Cuba (since our business is threatened by Castro we will make war and the excuse will bbe we were fighting communism) earlier on. So both of the superpowers suck. Now we have to support another war. How long will it be before we are having Blood and Guts rambozos like Ollie North running around in a mess of secret things 'to protect our national interest'. America wants oil, to get it, it needs puppets So what's 10 million dead if we're keeping out the Russians? -Dk Doomy 81/100: Steal This Book Name: Icarus 15 Date: 8:48 am Fri May 22, 1987 Hoffman's book seems very interesting. Does ANYONE know where I can get a copy of it? Who published it? Icarus 82/100: Switching Name: The Sensei 18 Date: 7:15 am Sun May 24, 1987 I believe it was from Manual to Automatic.

He got his computer back then the drive went... -Hatter 87/100: Oh neat Name: The Executioner 19 Date: 6:05 pm Wed May 27, 1987 Well, that's seems really sad, HPO had I think the longest duration without ever being down...hmm...oh well...it twas a nice system, no? U2 in concert was aweomse.... And front row to the Psychedelic Furs was the best... Genesis on Saturday and Billy Idol on Tuesday...can't wait Exy 88/100: General stuff.. Name: Kerrang Khan 34 Date: 2:00 am Thu May 28, 1987 i just found out how to beat a videogame called Galaga the other day. If you leave the bottom left bee-like creature alone on the first 'stage' and let it swoop by for about 10 minutes, eventually it will stop shooti ng at you. at that point you can kill it, and for the rest of the game, nothi ng will shoot at you. kind of interesting. i've found alot of odd 'bugs' in video-games over the years (tempest, defender etc).. although i don't spend too much time playing them, i like hearing about these things. anyone give a hoot, or shall we go back to discussing CAMA tapes (by far the more important to me, ahem).. or is it AMA tapes... who cares. k ps: anyone still prefer a decent pinball game to video games these days? 89/100: A neat game Name: The Executioner 19 Date: 10:12 am Thu May 28, 1987 A neat video game I saw was called "Contra", really fast and furious, also a game called Rolling Thunder was interesting. The Joust Pinball game is pretty fast, but I still prefer the video game if and when i drop by an arcade. Exy 90/100: Tempest.... Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 11:00 am Thu May 28, 1987 What can you do with Tempest? I have the actual game at home, about the only thing that I have ever found is that on some settings you can press the player one button and you can jump to the next level.... -The Disk Jockey 91/100: Games Name: Lex Luthor 36 Date: 1:56 pm Thu May 28, 1987 I prefer pinball since most videogames are too slow for me. Pinball can be quick and keeps me interested. High-Speed is one of the better games. Most people know that on Defender after you reach 990,000 every thing you hit gies you a free guy up until 1 million when it "rolls over" to 0 again. You don't receive new guys again until the last of your men are used up. It is recommened to not use that many smart bombs during this time and let the guys die. If you can get to a million then you should never have to worry about not being able to get free men. Personally I think defender is one of the best games of all time, since it has all the action I need. Asteroids Deluxe, the hard one is a good game, just you can't find it anymore. 92/100: Gauntlet Name: Slave Driver 58 Date: 9:10 am Fri May 29, 1987 and Gauntlet II are two very good games if you have 4 people that know how to play the thing. Galaga is a very good game, but my personal favorite is Qix, yes, I know thats sad, but hey... On that Stark thing, the reason they didnt have that defense system on auto is as follows. First of all it uses extremely hig density lugs weighing 30 lbs and shoots 3,000 a minute. It uses radar to track the thing in and just blasts the shit out of it. The problem is, anything of any decent size with radar would get the shit blown out of it, its not selective. I dont think it would be too nice to be coming in in a little helicopter (sp?) and have this thing shoot 3000 rounds a min at you. Something like that could ruin your day... The Exocet the missle that hit them| travels several hunderd miles an hour at a distance of 8 feet from the water. Neithers the AWACS nor the ship detected the launch on radar, although the ship detected Radar Lock always a sign of agression. They did not know the thing was coming till they spotted it visually. By the time word got to the Information Center, they had 7 seconds to respond... oh well... Slave Driver Sorry, U2's music was good, but the concert wasnt that great. But I guess you had to go to a lot of previous concerts to know that... 93/100: Video's Name: The Mad Hacker 47 Date: 6:55 pm Sat May 30, 1987 My Favorite Video Game has to be Robotron. Weird game. When I first played it, I spent all kindsa Quarters without too much luck. Last time I played it I Let the game go at 9 Million Something. Only thing is you have to have an afternoon to play..... The Mad Hacker 94/100: Games Name: Icarus 15 Date: 3:19 am Sun May 31, 1987 The best pinball game is Pinbot. Before that; High Speed. Does anyone remember Zookeeper? That was a great videogame, except it can't be found anywhere. Me 95/100: Jake Cutter Name: Control C 8 Date: 10:00 am Sun May 31, 1987 Is one of the best games. It's kinda slow, no sound, but it's a great game. Also The Heist is fun too. 96/100: well...

I got some friends and we just fuck around with it.. Paperboy is a little old, but still good.. 1 1/2 hours left of school(tomorrow)... W0W! -Hatter 98/100: tempest and things.. Name: Kerrang Khan 34 Date: 12:37 pm Mon Jun 01, 1987 the low down on tempest - first you have to play normally until you reach the red V shaped level. when you reach the one after that (a square-ish V) you can die or (read on) you have to get a score over 170,000 for this bug to work (the red V's bonus is something like 180k so its easier to just die and play a new game. in order to get 170k+ on one quarter requires you get up into the yellow levels which is kind of tough). anyway, once you have 170,000 plus point the key is to get the last two digits of your score to a specific number and then just die. you can jump your score by two points by shooting 'spikes' and by one point for finishing off a spike (you work it out). some interesting two digit numbers are 12, 17 - 40 free credits 05 - dumps you into playing the attract mode (more on this) 00 - freeze game in attract mode 01 - reset game (puts you into the maint. screen) 46 - changes level you can start at. 48 - lots and lots of 'ships' (mode on this too). you set up your score and die, then wait for the game to cycle through the attract mode, and then things will happen. 17 just starts adding credits and you can play normally, but you can have much more fun with 05. this just dumps you into the game tempest will be playing with itself. at this point, ALL the strange things you can trigger off will go on while you are playing. if you can hit 48 your ships will start multiplying, up to about 255 (guess), and if you can do this, you hit 01 and wait after which your game will 'normalize' and you can play all day to some outrageous high score. if you hit 00 though, the xDgame will freeze up on you. anyway thats a rough outline, and it only works on older versions. how did you get your own tempest machine DJ? k highspeed isnt a game, its a way of life. "Dispatch to 504.... he what?" 99/100: New Modz!@!! Name: Taran King 1 Date: 5:23 pm Mon Jun 01, 1987 Try out our new modz, compliments of Cheap Shades. The N:eed Acronyms is now a separate database-type function with search string and all so if you're baffled, you can search for the specific acronym without listing the whole damn thing. Use it well -TK 100/100: Farrari Name: The Sensei 18 Date: 6:05 pm Mon Jun 01, 1987 I usually play the Farrari game. I've only gotten up to around 67 grand. The game allows you to sit down and get a stereo sound with the whole machine moving with you. Such as a car would do. As for U2 concert....I'm still waiting for it to hit MN. Idol was great. So was the Cult. Ts Post on Metal/General Discussion? No ^*^ ==Phrack Inc.== Volume Two, Issue 20, File 6 of 12 Metal Shop Private's -- Phrack Inc./Gossip ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Phrack Inc./Gossip subboard included mostly conversation involving gossip in the phreak/hack world as well as the discussion of files for and the organization of the Phrack Inc. newsletter. 1/100: well... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 6:26 pm Wed Apr 29, 1987 Yet another version... PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN St. Louis - Well, the SummerCon has come and gone and nothing has changed. It started off well, with almost 80 people arriving. We knew something was wrong when people wouldn't put nametags on becuase they were embarresed. And then when they all drank large amounts of beer, it was realised "Hey! These phreaks arn't any differnt! There just typical teenagers who beli eve being drunk is fun 'cause the rest of the time they feel so shitty. No one was busted, the police just felt sorry for the weak attempt at Dyonisiun excess. Oh well, maby someday people will realise that false bravado and bragging of inebriation is simply stupid. "Hey, that wasn't even funny." sfd 2/100: Umm... Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 11:24 pm Wed Apr 29, 1987 Hey SFD, you need to title those articles remember? But seriously, SummerCon will undoubtably be a quite fun activity but lets face it, no one is going to learn much about phreaking or hacking that weekend, not with all the excitement of meeting new people and partying, which kinda relates that you'll forget everything anyway. PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN Phreak World Crippled; SummerCon Causes Despair June 22, 1987 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Today the phreak world was astounded and dealt a horrifying blow as all the phreaks who attended summercon, left with their entire phreak knowledge literally erased from their minds due to an excess of drinking and other unknown mind altering substances. it is unknown as to if these effects are temporary or a lifetime destruction. PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN Anarchy World Takes Charge June 23, 1987 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ MetaliBashers Inc, have become the new "LOD" of the modem worl since all of the LOD members no longer can even remember what LOD stands for (in fact no one can). With MBI taking charge, the new wave of the modem world has turned strictly anarchy although there are rumors of various pirating organizations beginning to unload new wares soon. PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN Investigators Lose Jobs! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ John Maxfield reportedly lost ALL contracts today when it was discovered that the phreak/hack community was completely destroyed thus no one needed protection from them. He has now taken a job with the local sanitation management firm to help figure out what to do with all the garbage now that the phreak community wasn't stealing 1/3 of it anymore. Hey this is getting fun huh? :Knight Lightning 3/100: I heard Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 11:56 pm Wed Apr 29, 1987 straight from the horses mouth that The Rebel and some other people from that crowd are going to show. I actually got to hear the entire Howie episode. According to Rebel, Howie was busted, went to court and when his mother found out what he was doing (again) she completely and foreverly (bros?) took away his phone privelidges. I dont know about that...but oh well. I also heard from quite a few people who have met Exy, Delta-Master and Bill from RNOC in person and the comments I receved were ...interesting. PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN PWN Suicidal Nitemare - History ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Suidical Nitemare met death head on when Evil Jay knocked on his door pretending to be a lineman checking on his line. Once inside, Jay prceeded to swing a hand set at Suicidal with amazing acurracy (sp). Once dragged outside, Jay then proceeded to tie Suicidal naked to a tree and call the ever-lovin' Broadway Hacker over to do his stuff. Jay was last heard pleading insanity. Suicidal Nitemare remains in intensive care, and Broadway Hacker is happy. -J 4/100: Michigan Name: Control C 8 Date: 2:10 pm Thu Apr 30, 1987 Doug, Bad Subscript. LoneWolf, and I are all planning on going. Maby we could work something out. I think Ax Murdere, and Sir William will be going too. Call me and we'll talk about it. Control 5/100: ROOMS Name: Lucifer 666 43 Date: 4:07 pm Thu Apr 30, 1987 If broadway decides the stay in the public rooms then I'm not in that one... also will it be like nametags? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | hello I am | | | TARAN KING- randy | __________________________ and so on.... also, I was wondering about the bust scene cause if I get busted in st louis, there is no way in fuck I could get bail money... liquor, drugs,... driving with craig etc... L666 6/100: Community rooms Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 7:02 pm Thu Apr 30, 1987 Broadway is being banned from using the community rooms. If he goes, he will have to get his own, and I heard that this is what he claimed he would do if he went. I really don't think there is going to be any busts as long as no one brings anything real illegal, like a blue box or is standing down at the pay fones with a page and a half of codes in front of a cop or something. 3 L6 What do you mean driving with me? :Knight Lightning 7/100: I do. Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 12:05 am Fri May 01, 1987 Because of the large amount of drinking and other crap, I'll bet my ass that more than 1 minor gets busted. I think we should all find some park or something. Actually, the better thing to do (which wont and probably cant be done now) is to rent some building for the night. Ive been to a few partys where they did that. No cops, outrageously loud music...it was great... wasnt cheap, but if everyone pitched in.... -J 8/100: Hotel Parties Name: Mad Hatter 51 Date: 6:57 am Fri May 01, 1987 i'm not very fond of them. I went to two of 'em and they both got busted. What are we(you) going to do if someone gets busted? I'm sure as hell that I don't want my parents getting a call from St. Louie PD saying, "Ahh, yes, Mr. xxxxxxx, you son was picked up at a hotel party for underage drinking. Can you please come pick him up?" Also, what about bail money? Jez, your screwed if you get picked up. -Hatter KL, since BH is NOT allowed in the public rooms,(and if I go with him) does that mean I can't stay there? Any other k-rad d00dzz coming? 9/100: Heh Name: Taran King 1 Date: 7:06 am Fri May 01, 1987 No, you can stay in the room with the rest of the people, Hatter. I haven't even heard about this banning Bway from the room, so maybe KL's making decisions for Forest Ranger, but I'm not getting involved in the personal schtuff. A LOT of people are getting their own rooms so that they won't be stranded in the middle of nowhere if they get kicked out. We will just have to keep it moderated (not the drinking, just the noise). If you (you) know that you're getting down here by some manner, please leave feedback saying what form of transportation you're using so that I can get an idea of how many trips to each station will be made, carpools can possibly be created, etc. -TK 10/100: Drinking Name: The Scanner 20 Date: 8:24 am Fri May 01, 1987 Whats the drinking age in St. Louis anyways? Please tell me they havent hit 21 yet. 11/100: SFD Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 4:26 pm Fri May 01, 1987 I'm glad that someone has a dissenting opinion on the drinking scene. While I do like to drink (on an average of about maybe 1 or 2 times a month, unless parents are gone or something), I also think that bragging about drugs and alky takes/shows no intelligence, and the person who refrains from doing that is a non-conformist. A bunch of people at my school call me 'the Anti-Pot Crusader' and similar names because I dislike hearing about how fucking drunk and stoned, etc, everyone got over the weekend for 2 hours straight. But tht doesn't mean I think it's wrong (unless someone is abusing, etc, selling shitt to buy drugs). You could take myy messsage as being a 'conformist' drinking/etc post since I stated some things about TK being drunk and pu king, but I don't consider it that myself. Doomy 12/100: well... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 8:07 pm Fri May 01, 1987 yup, glad to see you understand my position. Of course it is equaly lame to brag about how you never dring/take drugs. The key of course is to do what you actualy want to do, not what you have vbeen conditioned (by society and of course the dreaded 'p-pressure') to do. sfd 13/100: Drinking Age Name: The Spectre 82 Date: 8:25 am Sat May 02, 1987 The drinking age in St. Louis, and all of Missouri, for that matter, is 21. Has been for a long time. And since most people on here are under 21, that could pose some problems. 14/100: Broadway Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 10:13 am Sat May 02, 1987 Oh, ok Randy, you can sleep in the same room with Broadway. Don't bend over for the soap. Forest Ranger did make some comments and so did Taran on Atlantis. We have to remember the saftey of the people going and without sounding crude, the question of Broadway's sexual preference has never been answered conclusively. There are several people who plan to attend that would be very concerned about their personal well-being if they were forced to room with Broadway and I think that it would just make things simpler if B-way grabbed his own room. :Knight Lightning 15/100: I still..... Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 12:54 pm Sat May 02, 1987 think that Broadway won't show..... 16/100: Retraction Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 10:51 pm Sat May 02, 1987 I must 'apologize' (for lack of a better word) for my using of Broadway Hacker's name in that post, I feel that it is red, and weak for someone to rag on the ragee-of-the-month, behind their back. I personally have only one thing against him, and that is his bullshit story about a year ago when he to ok Radio Station down, and I believed him like a fool and took my board down and panicked. That just showed me that I can't really trust what he says. In all honesty, he did run a good BBS for a while, you can all give that much credit to him. Phantom 17/100: Bragging??? Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 1:19 am Sun May 03, 1987 Somehow I feel some of these comments are directed towards me. Well, hell... I have a good time, why shouldnt I say so? I dont think I brag.. .I uh. -J (lame, lame LAME post...) 18/100: B-Way Name: Jester Sluggo 31 Date: 12:13 pm Sun May 03, 1987 If the guy shows up, then he shows up. You can't make plans around him. As for partying, if you wanna get smashed drunk and make a fool out of yourself, go ahead. I'll drink, but drink moderately (about 6 beers/Hour). As for trading info, or getting busted; DON'T bring anything REAL illegeal. Others have said this, and I hope that nobody blows it for the rest of us. About the drinking age: as long as you stay in the damn room and drink, and keep somewhat quiet, there should be very little of a problem. For buying booze, I should be able to buy (even though) I'm not old enough, because I'm big enough.. I think TK is a witness to that. Moosehead! / \ / luggo !! 19/100: S-Con stuff Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 4:13 pm Sun May 03, 1987 Ok ok, Forest Ranger says that until Broadway has actually been proven to be a homosexual that he shall be innocent until proven guilty. In other words well he met Cap N Crax who met Broadway and Cao said he was ok, but I remember many others like Monty Python who met him and told us all about how Broadway just wanted to wrestle him in people's lawns and get him drunk. Will SummerCon finally answer the question? As I have stated before, DO NOT bring BLUE BOXes or anything else. DO NOT bring a 125 page list of SPC, MCI, MEtro, and TMC codes, DO NOT bring firearms or knives (Scan man will have that part covered), DO NOT bring your mom, DO NOT bring the police, DO bring your toothbrush. :Knight Lightning 20/100: Broadway Hacker Name: The Prophet 23 Date: 5:34 pm Sun May 03, 1987 A person by the name of S. K. Ericson once told me that this guy would card airplane tickets for very young hackers to New York to attend the TAP meetings, then refuse to card them the tickets home unless they gave in to his advances... SICKHe offered no proof of his accusations, though. -TP /l 21/100: Hack-A-Trip Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 7:10 pm Sun May 03, 1987 Well, he is always inviting people to New York and asking them if they would like to stay at his place. He also likes to get people's addresses and make plans to visit them. BH was also the founder of Hack-A-Trip, so this theory could have some tangibility. :Knight Lightning 22/100: Nametags? Name: Thomas Covenant 84 Date: 8:37 pm Sun May 03, 1987 Well, I may wear a skating cap that says "urLord", but aside from that, forget about it. I hate walking in into some place and some lady leaps out from behind a pillar and slaps a nametag on my tit saying "Hi! My name is Ian !" That happened to me once, and I used an old Erma Bombeck line: "Now, what shall we name the other one?" And Kip may wear his k00l vanity plate reading 616 HAK. 23/100: Nametags Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 11:06 pm Sun May 03, 1987 Well they are optional of course but remeber you are gonna have a hard enough time trying to learn everyone else's name without having to worry about them forgeting who you are (er whatever). Wear em if you want em. "Hi...My Name Is Knight Lightning...Unless Your Name Is Scan Man." Ba :Knight Lightning 24/100: innocent Name: Lucifer 666 43 Date: 11:51 pm Sun May 03, 1987 till proven guilty??? so when we find some guy hopefully someone not liked in the middle of the hall with a bloody swelling anus, crying, screaming "all I wanted was a US sprint code... I didnt know he'd do that....sob hes aid sob he would give my an account sob| on the Radio.... well now....fucking russian roulette... who will be the one to be butt-s macked? L666 25/100: hahahahah Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 1:02 am Mon May 04, 1987 'butt-smacked' hahahah that was funnny Luke. Oh well, fuck it we(ll see what happens there. I personally don't think there will be any real problems, just a few hostilities between people who have been 'enemies' for a while. Phantom 26/100: B'way "anus smacker" Hacker Name: Icarus 15 Date: 2:55 am Mon May 04, 1987 I am saying this, in regret, behind his back. BUT I will also say it to his ugly face. I was on his board and he got my number and would not stop his annoying calls, hours on end (maybe an hour). He wanted to meet me and after bluntly refusing many times, to no avail, I said to myself, "To get this fuck off my back I will meet him somewhere in the city." He never showed up. And stopped calling. But frankly, I believe every negative rumor about him. I am convinced h e is an utter fag of the worst kind. You would too if you heard the kind of shit he was saying. He asked questions his gynecologist wouldn't have the an swers to. (getting a bit crude..) Who was there when he was taking snapshots at the TAP conferences? Ic. 27/100: More on BH Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 4:14 am Mon May 04, 1987 Thats funny you should mention that. Broadway was also pretty insistent that I come up to visit him after the CES and some other shit. He also talked about getting "kicked in the balls" and shaving pubic hair. There is definately something wrong with him. I remember about 3 years ago when some friends of mine used to talk about some "crazy bastard who also talks about getting kicked in the balls"...this must be Broadway. Crax, lets go... ALONE. -Jay 28/100: HAHAHAHA Name: Slave Driver 58 Date: 10:02 am Mon May 04, 1987 I am on the floor laughing about that. I was at the TAP con telepub and I wil NEVER EVER forget this pear-shaped man taking out a camera and start snapping pictures. I have never seen dirtier looks in my life. They practically threw him out the window. It is also true that BWH likes to talk about guys balls and shit on the phone, but Jesus Christ guys, its simplel If he makes a move on you, be at the shit out of him. What is so hard about that?? You all seem so scared of him, like if someone screamed out 'Oh no, its Broadway!!' hundreds would being running out of the hotel... BWH is about 5-11 250lbs maybe, -all- in the gut, ass and hips. He really does look like a pear... Steve Driver 29/100: also.. Name: Slave Driver 58 Date: 10:07 am Mon May 04, 1987 If you were going there from a long way away, Id be SURE to get a room. Think about it, 30 40, 50, 1000, whatever| teenagers, drinking profusely, with no supervision. 90% wont be able to handle it and will just run around the hotel fucking things up. I had experience with this once and we totally fucked up the hotel. We took apart most of the insides of the elevator, broke all the screens and threw them down 10 floors etc. And this was just a piece of shit hotel. You guys are going to be in a mostly business man type of place. .. and they wont wait 1 sec to complain. All in all I would be VERY careful... I also wouldnt sign my name to the room. At the place I was stay it was a school trip to Six Flags, Great Adventure| staying the school got a bill for $4000 and that damage was done by about 15 people. So whoevers name is on the room registration better watch his ass... I think the person is insane ... especially since most places want a credit card copy to insure against the above... Steve Driver 30/100: Ba hahahahahahahahah Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 3:10 pm Mon May 04, 1987 Holy shit, I have just flown back and forth across my room laughing so hard after those posts. I remember him asking me some similar questions in the he past and rambling on about his balls etc. I ignored him and "had to go, its time for dinner." "But its 3:45 PM." "Er yeah see I'm late...>> Date: 4:26 pm Fri May 15, 1987 ARGHHH!! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!! Here is what we shall discuss: First, we shall discuss distortion, static, and its causes in T1 digital cable and in T1 ORBs. Then we shall examine the line and trunk link network, with maps, lectures, and sketches on behalf of all of us. Then it will be a question and anwser session, with Remreeds, Reed Relays, Serving Area Interfaces, F1 layout, interoffice trunk maintenance, toll office reports, and ferrite sticks abounding. Then we will discuss WC's and MDF's and the duties of the MCC in all ESS levels. Actually, it sounds inttersting to me (just about everything above) but there's a time and place for technical discussion, and also a time for fun. So nyah.

I can't wait. Anyway, I was speaking with Taran aboutg this yesterday, but now I'd like to ask you (the general public). I'm sure you all remember Phrack 13 (the joke isse), I felt that if people wanted to write the files, in times of need (we being low on files for Phrack) we would make a file or two a special feature like Phrack Work News or Phrack Pro-file, but with anyone contributing or writing it. I was think of datacapturing that stuff on sub 4 or maybe some of the bogus news stories on here for the first file. What do you think? Oh yeah, SFD, the idea you mentioned on the genral board sounds good, do it. :Knight Lightning 67/100: say we Name: Lucifer 666 43 Date: 1:52 am Sun May 17, 1987 wanted to go to 6 flags or do some engineering? with 100 or more people it could be hard... maybe there should be public conferences and then small get togethers of the people that we know... I dont know.....100 people running around and everyone trying to meet everyone... sounds confusing... 1988 "Well, I told mr. bush that I'd authorize it if he'd only bounce on it for a few more minutes" L666 68/100: Six Flags Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 11:57 am Sun May 17, 1987 Its a good idea in general, but we just don't have the time. We'd need a whole extra day and thats more moeny for rooms and admition to the park is kinda expensive to. So maybe a few might want to go, but I advise against it. :Knight Lightning 69/100: Wait.....! Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 12:37 am Mon May 18, 1987 Why don't we save time by going to Six Flags AND gineering! We could try to engineer the people that work at SF and find out who there boss is, what day they get paid, how much they make, who trained them, etc! Really though, this is al(the conference) gonna happen on friday and saturday? Well, why don't you throw in the optional "Sunday-Six-Flags-Day" for any of us that really don't feel like leaving? What is the price for that place anymore, about $18? I still think that there should be girls there, 30 or so guys, being wasted, and Broadway, still doesn't cut it with me, I need someone(s) be crude as hell to, and then abuse for a night. Almost as good as as finding a new Cosmos dialup! -The Disk Jockey 70/100: Bah! Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 2:55 am Tue May 19, 1987 Okay, since no one ever agrees with me, I thought I would explain my self this time around and hopefully make you understand that if alot of people show the show wont go. Im sure alot of you realize what kegs cost and Im sure with all the folks showing up (most of them probably not pitching in much - do they ever?), we are not going to be drinking as much as we like. 100 people in two rooms (not counting Broadway) - how wonderful. What do the people do who cant fit - (idea!) sit in the lobby and wait of course. Where do the people who can no longer stand go when its time for all 100 (in two rooms) people to crash? I couldnt tell you. What happens when the cops come? We run. What happens when Mrs Blow's son ends up in jail - she sues (or at least causes alot of bs), what happens when the cops, finding drunken people in the hallway, stumble across a drunken Taran King. They bust him and get him for many things including Intoxification (minor), Serving Minors (is that a law?), Causing a Publid Disturbance...among other things. What happens when Jay hits the "tank"...he gets 4 years in an Indiana Correctional Institure (Ive always wanted to pick potatoes). I was just thinking of everyone else, mostly TK. I have been to some pretty big partys, the majority of which were busted. Big partys are big news, and tend to draw attention from the less desirables (mainly cops). Contrary to what many on here have stated, the only place I would invite a faggot is the next Challenger to the stars. Now, Ive said my peice, and of course, as always, someone will disagree, someone will rag or someone will generally be pissed off, hate me for life, "de-"friend me or whatever. I know, Ive been a real negative, burnt-out, stupid-ass...BUT I DONT CARE!!!!1110!! -The Big J 71/100: Reply Name: Taran King 1 Date: 6:15 am Tue May 19, 1987 I think people are overestimating what will occur at SummerCon. I hardly expect 100 people to show up. Shit, even if that many do, a lot of people seem to be getting their own rooms...but for them to toss in like $5-$10, it shouldn't be a big deal. If the kegs don't work out, we'll just get cases of something (not as good, but still does the trick). As for being busted because too many people show up, only phreak/hacks will be allowed into the room as this is not an opened "party", per say. We will not be too rowdy because we are in these rooms for 2 nights and we cannot afford to be kicked out, therefore, people WILL be quiet (Friday night anyway) and people WILL NOT be wandering around the hotel drunk unless they're in another room which won't affect ours. The rooms will NOT be trashed because we're not positive h ow getting them will go (it will be under a fake name, but if they need ID, we're going to have to use someone's real one probably). I don't know, we'll work it out, but don't expect all of those obnoxious things that usually happen at hotel parties to happen because if we get kicked out, people can't just drive or stumble back home afterwards... -TK 72/100: About BIG parties. Name: Cheap Shades 3 Date: 7:18 pm Tue May 19, 1987 As far as Big hotel parties go it's usually not a question of cops showing up. It's more a question of Hotel Management. As far as that goes, hotel management is usually pretty cool about not kicking partiers out because they still make money off those people (as long as shit ain't getting torn up) and it's bad publicity to kick a bunch of drunk people out of a hotel because they end up driving drunk. Also public intoxacation of a minor is a crime but being in a hotel gets you out of being publically intoxicated. About the kegs, because there's a $25 deposit on kegs and $50 deposit on tappers I seriously doubt that we'd be getting kegs unless we can come up with a large quantity of money ahead of time. (Very unlikely). Later, ________________ \Cheap/ \Shades/ \___/ \____/ (By the way I've never seen ANYONE carded for buying a keg? I wonder if that'd be easier than finding someone over 21? nah) 73/100: Tapper Name: Mad Hatter 51 Date: 7:41 pm Tue May 19, 1987 $50 deposit on taps? We buy 'em up here for around $30. Is beer to be the only alcoholic beverage? I not much of a beer drinker. I prefer (naturally) vodka. There was something else but I seemed to have forgot.. Absolut rulezz d00d!!1! -Hatter 74/100: Alky Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 9:18 pm Tue May 19, 1987 If you ask me (you don't), mentioning the word 'party' or 'beer' or anything like that in the same sentence/post as 'SummerCon' is only yelling to the world that something is going to be goinng on. Now, it would be better if ther would have been nothing mentioned of partying, until we got there. Anyway, I don't think it should be such a party where everyone has to pass out, I'm not for that. Getting nice and fucked up to where you can walk (with difficulty) or getting a really dry mouth is good enough for me. Phantom 75/100: Partys/Summercon Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 10:45 pm Tue May 19, 1987 Yeah, but if we told everyone it was just going to be a gathering of people (damn wordwrap) talking about DMS then no one (or hardly anyone) would show. I think the chick idea is a good one, so it might be nice if some of you locals invited a few long-legged females to the rooms. As for me, I'll b e looking out for large naked fat men and hopefully trying to have a good time without discussing things like DMS...etc. Look for Part III of Tales of Misadventure - Summercon, sometime tommorrow on Phantasie Realm or here on drive H. This one will feature a visit in a shower, a large naked fat man, a casualty list and MUCH MUCH MORE!!!11 -J 76/100: How About Name: Cap'N Crax 10 Date: 11:51 pm Tue May 19, 1987 What would be the opinion of a "scams" file for phrack... I've come up with/invented/collected quite a few over the years. Most are not hack/phreak related, nor are they related to carding. They are mostly ways to "beat the system" or sort of "hack" non-technical things. Anyone interested? C^2 77/100: Ditto... Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 7:22 am Wed May 20, 1987 for me, there's lots out there besides carding anymore..... Oh, and Stoley vodka in the freezer (it wont freeze) is so smooth you can drink it straight, Hatter! I was an Asst Mgr for a bar for some time, so I can bring mix equipment for the hell of it if anyone wants to get exotic. Shades is correct about the managers, at an Embassey Suites party I had, we must have had 40 people in a 2 room suites, and we were all pretty wasted, and there were bottle and cans everywhere, and the manager only came up once (we thought we were screwed) to say to "Just keep it in the rooms guys!" He said something that is probably true at most hotels, trooms are somewhat sound proof! -The Disk Jockey 78/100: "SCAMS"! Name: Ax Murderer 7 Date: 5:36 pm Wed May 20, 1987 Hmmm....Yeah, carding is getting to be a lost age (Don't get me wrong but...) It's getting pretty sad. Unless the editors have some legal objections, I think it would be a pretty cool idea. There is little to stop anyone from finding limits in scams. But try to keep it creative, not your typical ordering a pizza (What a joke.) Ax Murderer 79/100: well...

(rhyme scheme! another poem..Lemonade And Me) I think that we should have a seperate sub for the summercon so we dont have this dichotomy (I felt like using that word and I really dont care if I didnt use it quite correctly? ok? ok?) between phrack posts and summercon posts Seriously folks, the whole drinking question is stupid. If you want to drink, buy it yourself.

Tuc and I only knew what hotel it was, no room number and the name it was supposed to be under was not checked in. We saw a photocopied paper saying: "You hold the Keys to Security" with the Pennsylvania Bell logo. Scrawled on the bottom was Phreak-Con IV. No room number there, but it did prove that they were there, somewhere... Well we came to the conclusion that the only way to find them was check every room assuming either a door would be open and we would recognize Videosmith and the others, or they would be making enough noise for us to hear. After about the 3rd floor of listening, I was not paying attention and had my ear about 6 inches from a door, listening for phreaks (a smart move, hey we had no other way of finding them ok? ok?) and there was a hotel security guy. Well while I was busy looking like a theif, Tuc saw him, with the eagle eye he has, as the guy was 2 or 3 yards away. Well of course he wondered what I/we were doing. We told him the truth (not a misatake for once) and he checked our ID. Then we asked if there were any complaints. Well he remarked about about some guys stealing all these hotel phones... A giveaway. We told him thanks and got the room . That was them allright. We spent the remainder of the night being chased by security and hiding phones. (Not really us (me, Tuc, and Videosmith) but the locals) of course it was unavoidable or just plain stupid to just sit and wait to be ejected from the hotel so we departed also. Anyhow, they were never thrown out just warned many times. And thats it. Just thought I would relay that story for those few people interested.

L666 85/100: Video Game Tricks. Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 1:45 am Sat May 23, 1987 Because of alarms they now have the machine, use the following catiously. 1) The quarter with the hole drilled in the middle will work on most machines. Its just hard to get the quarter back above the credit pin. 2) There is ALWAYS an extra set of keys to the front or back of the machine, hanging on the inside of the door. 3) The back wood they use (for the back) is like cardboard. It makes a big noise when cracked, but cracked it is - and easily. 4) ROM chips can be sold. 5) The penny up the coin slot still works on older games, like Pac Man. On MIDWAY games justflip the penny in the quarter inch slot up in the coin return. Flip it til it goes up, and hopefully you'll get a credit. On Atari games and similiar (ones with vertical coin slots), hold your finger up inside the coin return slot so the penny wont fall all the way down. Drop a penny in and once it sits there, carefully move it into the next slot on the right (right next to it). Flip it up. Nickels are easier. Have phun, -The BIG J 86/100: well...

Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 4:24 am Sun Apr 26, 1987 Back at the private school I went to, everyone lived pretty much out of state, and would always be calling their girlfriends back at home, thus making a pretty big investment into the local payphones. After reading the files on how a red box worked, took my little dictation recorder and went to a payphone and found that I could record the tones that were made when you dropped quarters in. I recorded about $4 worth of quarters, and it worked great. Every time the computerized voice would say "Please deposit $1.70 for the past 5 minutes" you could just play the tape via a pair of sony walkman headphones into the mouthpiece, and the phone would think that you deposited money in it. It was pretty neat back then (several years ago.....) but every now and then you would get the regular operator on instead of that synthasized voice. -The Disk Jockey Yes, not really important, but I saw "red box" in that last message and it reminded me of that. Those were the days when there were lots of extenders with 3 and 4 digit codes, and PBX's with NO codes..... 2/70: Since Name: The Leftist 71 Date: 5:26 am Mon Apr 27, 1987 Since non-sup seems to be popular these days 404-289-0000-0009 test recordings, non-supd..

And if so, what would be good to use for MF? Fun, no? Heh! Also, what does anyone know about the 508 NPA. :Knight Lightning 5/70: Supvision Xlation Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 10:13 pm Mon Apr 27, 1987 The best way to box is to pull a cat's tail after making a call, then get a rubber band and twang it in your teeth like Snoopy for MF. Since we were talking about supervision a little bit, I went through some stuff I had on translations. What I think makes a number unsupervised (besies the fact that there is no return of supervision, or reverse battery signalling) is the charging translation in the terminating office. The screening code of a chart class (charges and route are determined by the chart class I believe) that denotes the call charge type would register to not make either a detailed or bulk AMA entry at the toll office (if the number is 1+ for someone), since it as if the number never answered. A 'detailed' AMA entry shows the calling and called numbers, whereas a bulk AMA entry shows only the calling number. Something else about translations, it doesn't mean an 800 to POTS or special BTN when people talk about ESS translations, but the information on particular Directory Numbers that finds and identifies the line equipment of the called number (calling also I believe) that would provide any special info that is needed by the switch to process the call, for example, whether a call is coming from one or two party lines, or whether it is a four party line with full selective ringing (which can't be tested by MLT equipment which is why I remember it). If no translation influenced the way the call is processed, then how would the switch know to route tthe calling party to an operator for ONI if the calling line was more than two party (with the specifications talkd about earlier about the R and T leads status determining the billing also taken into consideration). Anyway, this post is basically correct but if anyone finds any errors then please correct me. Doom 6/70: Things Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 10:41 pm Mon Apr 27, 1987 Well, RC's on an ESS are called translations too, at least when done by an RC-MAC clerk. RC data involving a line that is changed can be called translations. Don't ask me why this is so, but it's what I've heard. Does anyone here know what an ANIF-7 is? As far as I can tell, it is an ANI failure to TSPS, but that's all I know about it...it can probably happen anytime, but I do know that it was a specific problem with an early 5ESS generic. Oh yeah, another unsuped signusoid is at (618)235+0090..this was found by Syntax Error a long time ago. A neat thing about these 'tone sweeps' is that if you call through an OCC that uses an OUTWATS line that is set up on an inband signalling trunk, the OUTWATS linne will be trunked from the other end. This happens as the tone gets near 2600Hz, but it is more sensitive on an OCC switch, as something like 2710 and 2500 will also reset or trunk their equipment, or at least that's what I've found. Phantom 7/70: FALFALAFL Name: Taran King 1 Date: 11:01 pm Mon Apr 27, 1987 I'd like to congradulate Doom Prophet on his extremely witty response to KL's absolutely out-of-place post. REFRAIN Question...Most test numbers are unsuped, but I have at least one tone sweep that I can think of off-hand that is suped. What would be the purpose either way?

If they do, wouldnt they have the repair number? _-The Scanner 9/70: 2 Q's Name: Circuit Breaker 5 Date: 12:11 pm Wed Apr 29, 1987 Why are there PBXs that give a loud tone before the code. And does anyone know what the difference is between the ANI-D jack and regular ANI is? 10/70: Red-boxing Name: Icarus 15 Date: 11:32 am Thu Apr 30, 1987 I saw before that someone mentioned that the amount of money entered into a payphone of some kind is not kept track of. If this is true then it would seem impossible for MA DUMBELL to ever catch on to red-boxing. That is if AT&T phones don't have a money counter in them. TK-When the money was collected from the payphone, did you notice whether he had the amount of money that was "supposed" to be in there? Or whether he even checked it? If the money is counted then it is possible that the person who collects the coins would get in trouble for not reporting all the money that was registered. The money not being there because of redboxing. It is also possible to red box off of blue AT&T payphones (without a money slot). I am curious whether that can EVER be found out, since there is no money counter (obviously) to check. Icarus 11/70: Well... Name: Taran King 1 Date: 2:41 pm Thu Apr 30, 1987 Next time I see the guy there, I'll ask him, but I did see him write a few things down. None that I could decipher meant anything related to money so I'm not sure if there was a counter in it. I'll have to check it out though -TK 12/70: Payfone Mutin Name: Jester Sluggo 31 Date: 6:49 pm Thu Apr 30, 1987 That was supposed to be "Payfone Muting". In anycase, on most new payfones, they have what is called "Muting" which "mutes"-out any red box tones from entering through the Mouthpiece. Those new non-coin-slot payfones should have those, but I've never tried. / \ / luggo !! 13/70: DNR/Pen Registers Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 7:04 pm Thu Apr 30, 1987 Are there any noticable effects from having one of these on your line?

Dont answer that. Anyway, 2 more questions, Im sure momma bell knows all about red box tones and stuff like that. But, what about those independent co's that make pay telephones and just kinda hook them up to normal lines in stores and stuff. Wouldnt they be easy to box off of or do they work in a different way altogether? Well, that was only one but an answer is appreciated. _-The Scanner 16/70: 'Round here... Name: Taran King 1 Date: 2:41 pm Fri May 01, 1987 In this region, you can't just play the tones into the mouthpiece and get cred (credit) for whatever you've played into the phone...you CAN, though, dial a long distance number, it will then say, "Please deposit $x.xx". You put in (play the tones for) the money and it says something like, "Thank you for using AT&T." Ta da -TK 17/70: Muxing, Etc Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 4:56 pm Fri May 01, 1987 Lucifer, I think what you mean about the bandwidths changing in Multiplexing, you are referring to voice frequency bandwidths. Multiplexing is just a method of sending more than one converstation down the same transmission path. In analog and older switches the method is called Frequency Division Multiplexing, or FDM, when the signals are seperated on basis of frequency, as opposed to newer switches which do it on a Time division basis (TDM). There's also something called Space DM but I don't think it has a whole lot to do with telephones (maybe stuff like digital Xmission). But anyway, a normal VF voice bandwidth goes from 300 to 3000 Hz which is SF in band, although the VF channel goes from 0 to 4000 Hz. Anything above 3000 is out of band signalling (like 3700 Hz). CCIS uses a seperate nettwork composed of STP's and varioius links and channels for independent signalling methods. About the red boxing, the circuits that keep track of the coins that have been entered are called Coin Detection & Announcement circuits (if the fortress is in an ACTS serving area), which are a part of the Station Signalling Announcement Subsystem which work out of local offices and in conjunction with TSPS (not TOPS as far as I have seenn, a flash of the switchook anytime during the initial charge announcements and an operator is connected. Playing the tones to a live operator wouldn't be a good idea as they can obviously tell the difference. Something else, there was a little discussion about AMA and all (isn't there everywhere?) a while back. The way a local office (LAMA) would keep track of the billing data is to use a few AMA circuits (there are always two, AMA0 and AMA1 but can be more for big offices) that reverse positions (from an active to standby mode at midnight when the datta in the buffer is recorded onto the actual tapes). So the AMARC computers can format the data to where it is recognnized by the RAO, the tapes have to be specially customized for that particular officere. A header label on the tape (put on at the beginning of each new tape entry (12)) tells the originating NPA, the office number, date and tape transport dates. A tape trailer is added on at the end of the tape entry for that day, which has the info about how many total calls were AMA recorded. The tape mark is some digit (?) that tells the RAO that the useful info (that they need to look at) is ended. The billing data itself is in a binary coded decimal form (0's and 1's) along with check and dummy codes. A noncheck dummy code fills the spaces on the tape to signigy that there wasn't a problem, but the space is supposed tobe there. A check dummy code is because the info wasn't received or sent from the Peripheral Adress bus or from the originating register into the charge buffer. If you ever come across AMA records (like in the call store section of SCCS) it won't look like anything that can determine billing (AMARC and RAO do that). They aren't too hard to read though, just takes a while. Doom Read:(1-70,^17),T,R,Q,P,A,? : 18/70: Correction Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 5:52 pm Fri May 01, 1987 Damn, what I got that I thought was some type of AMA records are not AMA records (I think), so that means that I haven't been reading AMA records. Shit, that's something that I want to do. Have to get some. Doom 19/70: well... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 8:15 pm Fri May 01, 1987 You mentioned the third time of multiplexing as Stad DM or something, I believe what you mean is Stattistcal Time Division (STDM). A STDM is just a normal TDM improved so that empty bandwiths (which occur on TDM) are used by busy ones. This allows a hell of alot more efficient use of the line then TDM's. STDM is mainly used when you have alot of terminals/whatever that wont always be being used. Hmm, I have some good stuff on pay phone accounting somewhere.... sfd 20/70: Payf0nez Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 10:57 pm Sat May 02, 1987 There are some types of payphones that are attached to a normal cable pair, a normal line, and in this case the payphone like usage would be determined in the phone and not in an office. I can't remember the exact type, or even where I read it but if I should find it by any chance then I'll put it p. Phantom 21/70: P-Phones Name: Jester Sluggo 31 Date: 12:19 pm Sun May 03, 1987 Well, there are several manufacturers of payfones that make several different type of payfones. If someone could call up the factory, or a salesman, or dealer of these products, and pose as a perspective buyer, then that'd solve these questions.. (shit..) It perhaps might make a good file for Phrack. But I don't have the time do to do those things.) / \ / luggo !! 22/70: AMA Name: Circuit Breaker 5 Date: 10:43 pm Sun May 03, 1987 There is some AMA info on LMOS. The audit file is under /dev/smlog /smlog. I got a list for two different streams ST1 and ST2. You should see, office id days until expiration process start time stop time the ama default ama teleprocessing its also will have some stuff such as HOC password and a backup HOC password, Also look under /dev/unixabf /unixa/users, this will give you the termination codes after the stream code like: S# (#)=termination code + date + time Circuit Breaker 23/70: audit file Name: Circuit Breaker 5 Date: 10:49 pm Sun May 03, 1987 One more thing to check on the audit file dump /no5text/rcv/aimrc. I would think the audit file is like audit on a VAX it just checks your access level if your insuficient you can't read that file. 24/70: Circuit Breaker Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 1:11 am Mon May 04, 1987 (Trying hard to leave an intelligble post) Circuit Breaker, what LMOS system do you have access to? Do you (it looks like it to me) have access to only the unix Front End system, or do you have the IBM VM370 host processor? Anyway, not all front ends are the same, try accessing the Cross Front End (XFE) via the Network Manager program (/usr/lbin, I think) nmx or the NMstatus program and checking for those specific files you posted about. I'll have to check the LMOS I have access to and see if those particular files you posted about exist. You also might want to look at the CRSAB RSA's help files for asyncronous terminal connections in the help directories. You are probably already good at unix, but try this to locate those help dirs: $ cd / $ du *>/dev/du.txt& Then in a few minutes, do $ cd /dev $ cat du.txt That will give you a listing of all the directories on that system, and if you see any that resemble help files then go there and cat everything... Phantom 25/70: Payphones (again) Name: Icarus 15 Date: 3:08 am Mon May 04, 1987 If the wires are exposed leading up to the payphone, and you hooked up handset to the appropriate wires, can you make direct calls? If the case is that you can, there are many phones I know of that do not have the metal encasing around the wires. I have to try it. I am pretty sure that bypassing the simple hardware of the payphone console itself does not grant open access to all outside lines. Or does it? 26/70: LMOS/Unix Name: Evil Jay 26 Date: 4:18 am Mon May 04, 1987 Could someone print out some commands to do on LMOS? What exactly can be done on the system. Please explain. Also, how do you turn off the log when logging into a Unix, and if possible, could someone leave me a C prg to give my account root priveledges. Terminus was playing around, and letting me check out one of these prgs but I never got a chance to save/copy it. Thanks/... -Jay 27/70: Payphone Wires..... Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 7:33 am Mon May 04, 1987 At the school in Indiana that I went to, there were tunnels that connected every building in the school together and dated back to the early 1900's, so we would get drunk and cruise down there and check out old crap that you find laying around in the basements that some of these tunnels went to. ANYWAYS, in one of these tunnels there was a HUGE phone block with hundreds of cable pair. I brought the dandy test-set one night and started trying different connectors to get a dialtone. When I did get a dialtone, I tried to dial a local number, only to get a "please deposit 20 cents" recording, so my guess from that experiance would be that the phone doesn't make much of a difference, and that you would NOT be able to dial direct calls on it. I have a driver's license that says I'm like 24, and I look it, so I too can buy for any who need it. Michigan licenses are the easiest to change, just as (ask) any Michigan person who was born in 1967. -The Disk Jockey 28/70: Fortresses/LMOS commands Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 7:22 pm Mon May 04, 1987 Come to think of it, it is the actual line and not the phone in most cases, take a look at the Class of Service or Universal Service Order Code in an ISVH (ISH) or an INQ from COSMOS or get it via an Basic Output Report (BOR). Now, if you really wanted to go out of your way to 'fix' a payphone to where you could dial out normally, you might be able to accomplish this via RC-MAC, or maybe an SCC. But if you did do this it would almost certainly die when the bill came. Phantom PS-I will post up pertinent data from an ISH upon various payphones next time I log on, if anyone would like to see it. 29/70: Payphone ISH Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 7:43 pm Mon May 04, 1987 Ok, I ISHed a few payphones and here's the results: The STatus was (of course) WK (Working), the TYPE was C (Coin), the Class of Service (CS) is CN (CoiN), the Universal Service Order Code (US) is 1PC, which means single party something.. can't remember. The Line Class Code (LCC) field contained CDF, I don't know what CDF means though. On older post-pay telephones (the kind where it either gives you a loud annoying 'buzz' when the calling party answers, or the kind that allows you to hear them but them not hear you until you put your coins in) probably have a US of 1PP (Single party, Post Pay), and Coin First phones (the kind that you must put money in to get a dialtone) have a US of 1CF (Single party, Coin First). Hope that helped, Phantom 30/70: Question Name: Cap'N Crax 10 Date: 3:43 am Tue May 05, 1987 Does anyone know why, and how, it is allowable to place collect calls to loop lines. I know that this does work, as I have done it. I was wondering how it (loop) is classified, why it passes the billing verify, and to whom is the billing allocated? It is obviously recorded on AMA, and it apparently pissed off Bell. No more loop... C^2 31/70: -------- Name: Circuit Breaker 5 Date: 10:25 pm Tue May 05, 1987 Phantom what do you mean 'trying for an inteligible post'? I was telling Doom how to get some AMA data from LMOS.

I know what they do, I just need to get on famous last words| 35/70: More LMOS Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 8:28 pm Thu May 07, 1987 Ok, I hadn't seen that in LMOS yet, CB, thanks for the info. There are other ways to access the info in an intermediate call store section/buffer of sorts from SCCS, and of course the AMARC systems. On another board, Phantom asked what AMASE was, I would think that it could be an abbreviated form of 'AMA Sensor', you know, BDT's, CDA's, and ESS software format sensors, or special VSS sensors maybe. On LMOS..some of the things are common knowledge (in BSTJ's and all) but I will post a few and what they do. Let's see, to screen status troubles, ttry /FOR MSCR. You may have to know employee codes of the screener and the MC code, it's been a while since I've been on. The different actions in the Mechanized Screener transactions are run an MLT test, get job and work info, run RST transaction, read mail, clear the mask (indicating no action), review desk items, return to original status, put item on the Local Test Desk (used to test lines that the MLT/LTS equipment can't for some reason, such as selective ringing multiparty lines), put screener in the off duty status (returning work items into the pool I believe). Others are /Te (Trouble Entry), DISP, etc. Something somewhat interesting, in the /tmp direcoty for an FE, look at the Console/log0 file, which contains countters and info on how many certain transactions have been done for a certain time period (RBOR is in there but I'm not sure about the rest). Other commands do things like add changes to LMOS tables, look at work summaries, check all jobs related to a certain CTTN (cable trouble ticket number) or TTN, and review all work items for specific FE's. If anyone wants anything specific about some of these commands leave ma (me) a letter or post since it seems the discussion is going good. I'm sure Marauder or others could proably correct me on a few points, but oh well. Doom 36/70: Call Blocking/Loops/etc. Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 11:09 pm Thu May 07, 1987 Circuit Breaker, what I meant was that I was fucked up, and having a hard time typing legibly. That's all. Call blocking is a vague term, can you tell us what it relates to, CAMA, ANI, PBX's, or what? A basic description is that it is what happens when the network is operating at peak, and all trunks are busy, and thus the caller gets a re-order or is left sitting there. Be more specific if you can, because there is also a thing called 'blocking' on PBX's which is similar but on a smaller scale. To whoever asked about the collect call to the loop, well loop-around numbers are probably either an Official or a Test line, at least the ones I have seen. So unless they set some type of screening to it so it can't accept collect calls then you could collect call a loop, but hope that you didn't dial direct from your home because your number would be on their phone bill. Control C, since you seem to have a manual or something on ESS, could you tell me what a RC15 report is, I am very confused about them. Thanks... Phantom 37/70: Coin Tests... Name: The Mad Hacker 47 Date: 12:07 am Fri May 08, 1987 SFD posted in the previous sub abour coin tests. I ask you this. The CO, upon completion of a call, removes -48 volts from the ring, ground from the tip and either a -130 volts(Refund) or +130 Volts(Collect) is applied to the tip to operate the cion relay in the phone. If Someone were to have acces to the exposed wires outside of the phone, wouldn't they be able to simulate the voltage necessary to refund their own money(Theoretically speaking if they could simulate the voltage in a Phone Booth of course)? Would that Be Possible? I also broke out my testboard, Station, and network Manuals and Found that their is some significance in turning the handset of the payphone upside down. I can't find out exactly why yet, but it is all over the "Coin Maintenance Check Booklet" that bell uses as reference for Coin Stations. I will search more through the book and see what I can find. The Mad Hacker 38/70: Collect call Name: Icarus 15 Date: 12:52 am Fri May 08, 1987 If you hack a mailphone system of some kind that only requires the number to be called and the initia message will be played, then you can have the message say, "Hello?........Sure. hangup|" This will enable you to make a third party billing call to anyone and use the mailphone system as the party paying for the call. The operator will cal up the mailphone, the msg will play and she'll hear the person being billed say, "Sure." when asked if they accept the charge. In any case if you want to make a call bill it to 312-410-7132, and it will go straight through. Icarus 39/70: Call blocking Name: Lotus 38 Date: 3:44 am Fri May 08, 1987 I know that in parts of Florida that a new system uses the term "call blocking" simply to stop someone in your co's area from calling you. You would do something like "*80+number to block" and when that number calls you , a "You can not dial XXX-XXXX at this time. Try again later" Other features include immediate call back. This allows you to hit a few keys on the phone and call back whomever just called you (again, only if they are in your local co). Anyone else have info on this? 40/70: Collect Calls..... Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 6:55 am Fri May 08, 1987 A few years ago, in school (out of state) everyone had their ways making free calls, someone had a number to a recording, something like that VMS, and it said "This number accepts all collect and 3rd party billing calls" and it worked all the time. Another way is to make a collect call to an out-of-state extender. Let me say it this way.... I'm calling from 219 (Indiana) and I call the local MCI node in Chicago collect. The operator asks "your name" and you say in a fem voice "Brenda"....the call will go through, and you will here the usual MCI tone. RIGHT AWAY, you press a number on t touch tone pad, this will silent the MCI tone. Then you say in your own voice "Hello?" for all the operator knows, you are the one that answered! The only problem is that you have to work fast, else you get a re-order in about 15 seconds. -The Disk Jockey 41/70: Call Blocking... Name: The Mad Hacker 47 Date: 9:19 am Fri May 08, 1987 I will get more specific on the Call Blocking I am refering to. It isn't what Lotus suggested. That Sounds more like DMS-100 Options(Sounds Exactly like them, in fact). I thought that the FCC wouldn't allow AT&T to use those options, though. Maybe I was mistaken. I think that the call blocking I was refering to is more towards the overload on any paticular circuit as was mentioned before. The Mad Hacker 42/70: toll phone Name: Circuit Breaker 5 Date: 10:46 pm Fri May 08, 1987 In most areas in Europe, the wire to payphones hang out below the phone if you splice those wires to you handset, you can dial direct without any imitation tones. 43/70: Call Blocking Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 2:23 am Sat May 09, 1987 Call Blocking is indeed a feature of (C)LASS....but that CLASS feature is LATA based around LCCIS, not upon a CO and intraoffice calls. For more info read any CLASS file, or check out LOD/H TJ 1, file 1, CLASS, by Videosmith. It explains it pretty clearly. There was a PBX test number in 305 (the testing grounds of CLASS) that I had gotten somewhere that had a demo of CLASS features on it, such as Call trace, selective call forwarding, call blocking, etc. It was called Touch-Star, I think, or maybe Touch-Tel, one of the two. Anyway, LASS is used in the 717 (Harrisburg, PA) NPA. Phantom 44/70: Addition. Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 2:32 am Sat May 09, 1987 (I forgot something) DMS-100 does have something like it's own call blocking. It can be used to restrict certain types of lines from calling other types. The destination switch checks the information sent in from the (intraoffice) DN, (I think the Screening Code, probably) or from an INC (incoming trunk). This can be done to restrict access to official lines and such. Phantom 45/70: i thought Name: Lucifer 666 43 Date: 2:26 am Sun May 10, 1987 none of the DMS features blocking other people from calling you, etc| were not implemented.... I thought that the user-choice stuff was never put in... was I wrong? L666 46/70: RC15? Name: Control C 8 Date: 11:17 am Sun May 10, 1987 Phantom, Are you sure the RC15 exists? RC's start at 16 and end at 29.. Maby I'm just screwed... 47/70: FACS Name: Mad Hatter 51 Date: 5:57 pm Tue May 12, 1987 Can anyone fill me in on FACS? I got the file by Sharp Razor and Doom Prophet has told me about it somewhat, but can anyone explain detailed info on it? Thanks (d00d)... -Hatter .s 48/70: TC15 Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 7:21 pm Tue May 12, 1987 Actually, it's a TC15 report on a 1AESS... not RC15. Sorry about that. A TC15 is very long and has a few acronyms in it that I don't recognize. About the only one I can remember right now was PUC, Peripheral Unit Controller. For those of you who have problems with the acronyms posted here, you might want to check the N)eed acronyms option from the main menu on this board. This is an acronym list that I made a while back and gave to TK, and he put a few in himself. It's basically correct as far as I know, so please let's not add one unless you are sure. Phantom 49/70: Carot, etc. Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 4:41 pm Fri May 15, 1987 Well, I don't know that much about FACS, although I don't believe that it really acts as a replacement for COSMOS, more like an integration/mini datakit sort of thing for the different systems related to cosmos. Mad Hatter was asking about CAROT in mail, and I looked through some stuff and here is some info about the system. It consists of the two processors for the CAROT (database section), the data and the test processor. The TP controls and directs the ROTL's and the Circuit Maintenance System (I've seen CMS-1B and also CMS-3A, don't know what the current version is). CMS 3A is used with TIRKS also. Anyway, the CAROT controller (which is supported by the two processors) can do something like 14 tests at the same time (at night when their is less traffic on the trunks). The CC also analyzes and sends out the test results to the appropriate departments or offices (the CO, an SCC or a CTTU station). The ROTL is accessed just by the technician dialing it, which is why anyone can dial them. The ROTL is controlled by MF input of the trunk group and network numbers. I have seen TNN's as being three digits, but I guess it depends upon the office size. The ROTL seizes the trunk to be tested. The ATMS responder (Automated Trunk Measurement System) is connected to the ends of the tested trunk to receive tthe test measurements. The ROTL somehow attaches test equipment to the origiinating end of the trunk. Other test lins are used for the terminating end (going into another CO or switch)...I'm sure everyone knows there are dialups to CAROT, these are from the Remote User Multiplex, the ports for remote terminals to call in through (unless the dialup serves for some type of diagnostics testing upon the test equimpment itself). 16 people can be on the same RUM....I don't know if that means 16 people can dial the same dialup and somehow still connect (highly improbable). Lex would probably know more about it. Doom 50/70: Advanced 800 Name: Taran King 1 Date: 5:00 pm Fri May 15, 1987 Well, I know that many people have been told that to get translations for 800 numbers, they should call an office that has access to the NCP database. I just read a bit about it in CO which I thought was sort of interesting. It's part of DSDC (Direct Services Dialing Capabilities). The subscriber dials the 800 number which is then routed to a 4E. From there, it goes to the ACP (Action Control Point or is it ACtion Point?|) which is software that determines the special type of call (toll free/976/etc.). The ACP gets it's (its) information from the NCP which is the Network Control Point. The NCP database receives the call information through CCS and checks on the customer service information that the call information goes with, thereby determining how to route the call and sends the info back to the ACP. The SMS (Service Management System) is used to update information and for definition of that information. The NCP database can contain various information such as where the translation routes determined by origin of call or time of day too. I have a question about CCS. What is signifigant about the number version? I mean, is the information transmitted done differently (different protocol or manner of sending) or is it just updates to the way it's wired up? McBlah -TK 51/70: CCS Name: Mad Hatter 51 Date: 6:02 pm Fri May 15, 1987 Randy- I can't seem to find that ancronym or any mention of it. I've followed your post all they way up to that. The Advanced 800 Service you read had to do with the SPC Network? The paragraph you typed was the same(not word for word) as the one here in the Tech on SPC Net. ACP stands for ACtion Point. -Hatter Excuse the time/date of this call.. 52/70: CCS Name: Taran King 1 Date: 11:05 pm Fri May 15, 1987 The CCS that I mentioned (CCS7 presently) is like the modern term for CCIS. I'm not sure why they changed it, but that's the accepted acronym now. The information that I got from CO magazine was discussing the BOCs' involvement in 800 services now. It's highly possible (and probable) that they use the same method of signaling for this. Hmm...Oh well, still, I want to know about the different versions of CCS. Later -TK 53/70: CCS Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 12:52 pm Sat May 16, 1987 Ok, the international version of CCS is known as as CCITT6, (or 'the CCITT signalling system No. 6) which are centered around an International Switching Center (ISC). CCITT No. 6 can identify 2048 trunks (CCS can ID 8192 trunks). I have some pages from an old BSTJ on CCIS in front of me, they have a good amount of information about CCITT6 in here. One interesting table inn here is Calling parties categries, which are in bits 13-16 of a CCITT No. 6 'message', there are provisions for operators in French, English, German, Russian, and Spanish, and other user selectable languages, data call, test call, spare, etc. I'll have to read more about this, it would be interesting to find out how you could make an int'l call over CCITT No. 6 (or maybe 7 now as someone said) as a test call. Phantom 54/70: Badgers... Name: Taran King 1 Date: 7:38 pm Sat May 16, 1987 A long, long time ago, Jester Sluggo found some stuff about Badgers while trashing. Just today, in conversation, I found out a bit about what these are. It is a piece of machinery (Badger is the brand name) which is located in the SCC (supposedly). It is used for remote trunk testing and it grabs the circuit to be tested and runs whatever on it. I have a feeling this is more for the independant telcos but I couldn't say for sure. Later -TK 55/70: Here's...... Name: The Disk Jockey 13 Date: 12:40 am Mon May 18, 1987 ..an employee numthat I guess is sort of a Sprint Newsline. It was LEECHED off of another board, so it remains ted: 8-332-0111 56/70: Anyone know? Name: Cap'N Crax 10 Date: 2:22 am Mon May 18, 1987 Does anyone know if either/both 900's and 976's terminate in POTS number? (Ever?) Something tells me that they probably do.. C^2 57/70: 976/900s Name: Taran King 1 Date: 6:35 am Mon May 18, 1987 I believe that I asked someone that already and neither of them did. They both were arranged really strangely and didn't have POTS numbers (or at least not standard POTS numbers). If you could log onto the switch for the 900 or 976 number, you could probably find out, anyway, if it's got a POTS translation, but then again, that's a whole different baby. I'll ask again and repost when I find out unless Phantom and DP beat me to it (likely). Later -TK 58/70: 900 and 976 Name: Kerrang Khan 34 Date: 4:37 pm Mon May 18, 1987 Do not terminate in POTS numbers. k 59/70: I think.. Name: Slave Driver 58 Date: 10:21 am Tue May 19, 1987 that 900s as in the kind you see on TV, like voting things| terminate in a 4e office. There is some special device that totals the calls if needed| and then the people who are using it just call and ask about the numbers... Steve 60/70: 900 numbers explained Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 9:35 pm Tue May 19, 1987 I was really interested in how 900 numbers worked, it is not common phreak knowledge, so I researched via a BSTJ and a little bit of engineering. Actually, I wrote a file on the Mass Announcement System (MAS) that is about 80 sectors, but I never released it because I thought no one gave a fuck. If anyone here wants this file, mail me and I'll get it to you somehow, or upload it here. 900 numbers do terminate in a Number 4 ESS, the 4E that has been allocated as your MAS node. As of 1980 (old info, I know) there were 7 No. 4 ESS switches that were MAS nodes. That number might be more now, butt the nodes were in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, LA, Newar, and Philly. Each one of these covers a particular part of the country. (oops, that 'Newar' up there is supposed to be 'Newark'). For instance, if Randy dialed 1-900-555-1212 (the Dial it 900 service information line) his call would be sent to the Atlanta No. 4 ESS MAS node. If Mad Hatter dialed the same number, his call would be sent to the Philly MAS node. (Oh, Alaska and Hawaii are also included in this). Back to the original question by Crax, 900 numbers can terminate in a POTS number, but I have never seen it done, so I would guess that it's not a common occurance. This is called cut through calling, or technically, Media Stimulated Calling (MSC). MSC basically sends one call per some unit of time to a DDD number. The place that handles the maintenance and administration of all No. 4 ESS MAS offices is called ONAC, Operations Network Administration Center. I think the ODAC are centralized in Kansas City, Mo, which seems kind of strange because there isn't a MAS node there (that I know of). One interesting thing about MAS services is the way Recent Changes are done, through an RCRRT2 (Remote Recent Change, don't ask me why the acronym doesn't match) channel, which is hardwired to ONAC. If one ever trashed ONAC or a 4E MAS node, you could probably find some actual switch output messages. Those would be interesting to see. So if anyone ever does any trashing like this then let me know. Phantom 61/70: UNIX logs... Name: Ax Murderer 7 Date: 5:33 pm Wed May 20, 1987 I haven't been on for awhile, but anyways, whoever was questioning UNIX's, which log are you talking about, the one of Berkley (HIST?). There's quite a few logs. To get superuser privs on some systems, first go into the /dev/ section and scan through the files. Almost always there will be a program in there which will be UNPROTECTED and allow even the lowest scum to use it. The main point is, in case for some emergency reason, he must log on from a remote location, and has difficulties, he may process another account. Ax Murderer Also, I got TONS of "C" programs. I also am pretty fluent in this. 62/70: Unix Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 9:02 pm Fri May 22, 1987 Does anyone know a way to implement something similar to some common unix commands on a cosnix OS? For instance, the grep command, the find comma the file command, and a few others. What I wanted to do was list the ascii files in a cosnix directory (assume the /usr/cosmos directory, where COSMOS three letter command source is kept, but there couldcii or English Text in it). I would do it like this on unix: $ ls -a on Centrex, or maybe someone out there knows a few things about it that could post?? Centrex in the home is pretty nice thing to have..only costs about 10 bucks to have it installed, but its well worth it... more info later.. 66/70: WELL... Name: Sir Francis Drake 56 Date: 7:05 pm Mon May 25, 1987 I HAVE SOME NON TECH CENTREX MANUALS SOMEWHERE... I dont think its all that great right now but when the RBOC's are allowed to do all their software stuff it will be pretty cool. There are allread some keen centrex packages for voice mail and stuff. Ill go look for them. sfd 67/70: Centrex Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 5:59 pm Sat May 30, 1987 Leftist, what do you want to know about centrex?

Phantom 68/70: Blue boxing Name: Icarus 15 Date: 3:28 am Sun May 31, 1987 I have found that kp and st are not necessary when dialing off of a trunk. After seizing the trunk, ac+ is all that is needed to call out. This seems strange. Any comments? Icarus 69/70: Reply^ Name: The Executioner 19 Date: 4:15 pm Sun May 31, 1987 You are not seizing an interoffice trunk. What you are doing is kind of pseudo-boxing, which is what we used to do here in New Jersey. What would happen is that we would use MCI, get a destination and then blow 2600. Since there were no restrictions on the band width, and no filters, we would blow back a dial tone that was possible to make international as well as alliance calls with crystal clarity. I don't know the exact name of this but just that we weren't seizing a trunk. Ex y ^ nice space 70/70: DP Boxing Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 8:41 am Mon Jun 01, 1987 Icarus, what you are talking about sounds like boxing using a DP (Dial Pulse) trunk. DP 'boxing' doesn't use KP and ST, they use a time-out feature. DP is made up of short bursts of 2600Hz tone. It isn't all that common as far as I know, but some older SxS offices supposedly use it for outpulsing on interoffice calls and to CAMA for billing. This means that either the homing CAMA office can record dial pulse trunk signalling, or there is some sort of sensor to translate it to MF before reception by the CAMA MF digit recievers. Phantom Post on Phreak/Hack Sub? No ^*^ ========================================================================= ==Phrack Inc.== Volume Two, Issue 20, File 8 of 12 Metal Shop Private's -- Social Engineering ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This was a subboard similar to the Phreak/Hack Sub but it concerned the art of social engineering or bullshitting to get information. 1/27: CAROT/RC-MAC Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 2:46 am Sun Apr 26, 1987 The numbers before/after CAROT are the generic and version.. for instance 2CAROT3 is CAROT 2, generic 3. The highest I have seen is 2CAROT4, but there are probably more. Also a number that refers to a CAROT system could also be it's particular number, if there is more than one in a particular area. RC-MAC (Recent Change Memory Administration Center) is a place where a clerk enters information into an electronic switching system via a Recent Change terminal. The information changed can be a variety of things, but things like Class of Service, CCF's, EA Interlata Carriers (called a PIC, Primary Independent Carrier, I believe, something along those lines), etc. Data that is to perform Recent Changes upon an ESS switch is screened by a computer system called RMAS (Remote Memory Administration System) for validity. RMAS is generally running under a unix OS. A few actual Recent Changes look something like this: RC:LINE;CHG: ORD XXXXXXX TRC ! That is an RC upon a line, to change something. The TRC is TRaCe, I think, and the ! is needed for some reason. You can also have: RC:MLHG;CHG: (RC upon a Multi Line Hunt Group); RC:MPTY;TWPTY: (RC upon a Multi Party line, a 2 party line) Oh yeah, those examples I typed in might be wrong, I don't memorize them or anything so don't sue me if they aren't right. Also they are for a 1AESS. Phantom 2/27: Bah.. Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 2:54 am Sun Apr 26, 1987 (Sorry to post two in a row...) Hatter, RC-MAC does have COSMOS access, at least they have a login prefix assigned as 'RECENT CHANGE', which is RCxx, where the xx is two numbers. Theyy don't seem to logged on that often though. Some other systems they may have access to include RC/V, Recent Change annd Verify, I don't understand RC/V that much, but RC/V has channels into electronic offices, just like RC channels. RMAS is access to an RC channel. PS-I'm open for corrections..I'm not 100% sure about all this shit either.

I believe they have access to RC terminals (makes sense anyway...) so you could get then to complete any RC transaction that you wished to have done provided that you've got a good excuse. Hope that helps a bit.. -TK 8/27: CT reports Name: Control C 8 Date: 9:07 pm Wed May 06, 1987 Here's something you may be intrested in: Report Reason for Report ------ ----------------- CT01 To print information pertaining to a line trace requested by an input message. CT02 To indicate that this message contains information pertaining to a line trace requested by an input message. CT03 To indicate that an interoffice or outgoing seven-digit call has been placed form a directory number to another directory number. CT04 To indicate that the incoming call has been placed to the indicated directory number from a trunk. The trunk network number (TNN) is given. Translation information for the called directory number or the terminating directory number indicated that a trace should be made of all calls to this number. CT05 Indicates thatan outgoing ten digit call has been placed from directory number to another directory number. A check of the Calling Line Identification (CLID) list indicates that a trace of all calls to this ten-digit number should be made. CT06 To print the contents of the CLID list in response to input message CI-LIST or as the result of an error being detected in a CLID entry by audit 32. The audit will remove the directory number in which the error was found. If CLID list in printed in responce to a TTY message, then it will be a priority of SCHED and an 'A' will print out with the header. If CLID list is printed as a result of an error found by the audit an 'M' will print out with the header since it will be a priority of MAN. If anyone want to know any other output reports let me know.. Control 9/27: SCCS Name: Mad Hatter 51 Date: 11:18 am Thu May 07, 1987 What is the difference between SCCS and TSPS SCCS? Is it that TSPS SCCS is used by TSPS only? That sounds logical, but I wasn't sure anyway. Anyone ever hear of Network Administration? What are they good(used) for? Questions, questions, questions.... -Hatter 10/27: NAC/CT0X reports Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 10:58 pm Thu May 07, 1987 Network Administration is also known as the NAC, Network Administration Center, also called Dial Assignment. They are located in the BOC building, I believe, along with the LAC (Loop Assignment Center) and SSC (Special Service Center) and a few others. The NAC basically deal with new lines being put in, they do things like figure out how to evenly distribute the number of lines so there won't be any shortage, and things like that, it's similar to the LAC but I don't know any big differences in the two right now. Ctrl C, where did you get the CT0X message summaries? Pretty good info though, but I can say that I have only seen a CT06 (when I pulled it up), a CT04, and a CT03 message. CT04 ID's a TNN (as he said) connected through the destination ESS to a particular DN. It can then be determined the general area of where the call is coming from from the TNN. But there is differences if you are calling over interoffice trunks (local calls) or tandem trunks, or long haul, or inter-LATA... Phantom 11/27: Offices, systems Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 5:21 pm Tue May 12, 1987 Ok, for all you D00ds, here's some really hot classified information on Telco offices and the systems they use for maitenance functions. If you run into a problem engineering, simply say you are from any of the following offices. I will go into a brief description of each below. Enjoy! FUCK-Facilities Utilization Control Kitchen. A really hot office. They keep backups of all systems per a LATA, or in special cases, the entire BOC area, along with user logs and passwords. They use the CUNTLICK system to interface with SHIT, explained momentarily. They ar difficult to reach as no one knows their number, and anyone calling it has to enter a special queue dispenser where he enters routing information to reach the FUCK ACD. The FUCK technicians answer as normal subscribers and you have to tell them a codeword. PENIS-Plant Engineering Network Information System. Used by the PMS to deal with outside plant details and layout maps. CUNTLICK-Computer Utilities Network In the Control Kitchen. Used to sensor with SHIT. SHIT-Supreme Hardware Inventory Totals. Self explanatory. CRAP-Customer Repair Analysis Service. They use PENIS to supply PMS with info. PISS-Primary Intertoll Switching Servicemen. Corrdinate classes 1 through 4 toll offices and monitor the STP's. BITCH-Building Installation Table Channel. Used by SHIT technicians to obtain new switch and office status. SCAB-Switching Cable Analysis Burea. They work with PMS for trunk testing and maintenance. The systems they use are FART and DOPAMINE. Well, that's about all!

The Mad Hacker 19/27: 800's Name: Lucifer 666 43 Date: 2:07 am Sun May 17, 1987 I imagine that you would have to get the POTS number from X-tended 800 services and then get the SCC for the POTS... Maybe the 800 number could be taken down for a while or disconnected by getting the AT&T office that handles 800 maintainence... L666 20/27: 800`s Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 1:31 pm Sun May 17, 1987 I don't know if I posted this or not, but not all 800 numbers terminate in a POTS number, some of them are in the format of (NPA)+1XX+XXXX, and these are the kind that are only dialable via the actual 800 number, or by someone using a blue box to trunk off a number within an NPA (toll office actually) that is subscribed to that 800 number. I had someone get me some translations once from a toll office in 617, you can get them by typing certain commands directly into the switch, something like: TEST-DSIG-INWATS-NPA NXX XXXX. ^D That's not right, but it's close. Phantom PS-MSP is almost as messy as Randy says. 21/27: Change numbers Name: Mad Hatter 51 Date: 8:18 pm Mon May 18, 1987 Is it possible to change your number by engineering an office? If so, which one? My guess would be RC MAC, but then again, what do I know? Bell Techie 22/27: Whats... Name: Slave Driver 58 Date: 10:27 am Tue May 19, 1987 NSAC? Steve Driver stupid definitions welcome, but so is a real one...thanks..| 23/27: NSAC...? Name: Phantom Phreaker 46 Date: 9:38 pm Tue May 19, 1987 Did you mean NESAC by any chance? I've never heard of NSAC but it probably exists, there are a bunch of telco offices that end in 'SAC' such as MSAC, ESAC, NESAC, and OSAC, and probably others I can't remember. I'll look around and see if I can find NSAC anywhere. Phantom 24/27: Offices Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 6:57 am Fri May 22, 1987 Well Phantom, OSAC isn't a Bell or AT&T office, it is a system for operator services support (I guess it stands for something like Operator Services Assistance Center). From there a person can get information for certain time periods on entire TSPS sites, such as how many calls were placed, etc, and a traffic analysis for day or night reports. The CLLI code is listed with the report I believe. CMAC is similar to RC-MAC (or so I thought) because when I was trying to get an 800 translation, the PBX attendant at the RTM in 312 referred me to them. They then asked me what switch it was for (the Xlation) and apparently misundererstood my request (I guess they thought I was asking for a DN or trunk translation). MSAC is for installation and testing of WATS lines butt don't give out Xlations (policy by the sound of it although it was probably just me). I have heard differently, soo I'm not sure on tht last one (MSAC's purpose, which I have been told NSAC does instead). Since 800's have gottenen 'advanced' I suppose the offices for testing could be on a national level, although MLT equipment when testing a number that has been reported as an 800 somehow accesses the actual translation or non standard BTN automatically. The A8FSC probably does WATS testing also, along with NASCAR (mainly used for traffic analysis from toll centers of 800 terminations to make sure the completion level is up to standard). TK, where is the ACP physically, just in the 4E itself? Do you know how the NCP receives incoming messages (the same as an initial message on CCIS, or CCS) and in what format? Also, what data links run to and from the NCP? Hope someone can answer my questions.. Doom 25/27: Sorry Name: Doom Prophet 21 Date: 7:02 am Fri May 22, 1987 To leave another post, but before anyone starts having a fit, I know the standard places for obtaining Translations, so please don't leave a thousand corrections on how the RTM has nothing to do with Xlations (I agree). Acttualy it was someone at the RWC who referred me to CMAC and not the RTM, I can't remember clearly anyway. 26/27: Shit...

Or is he laying low and thats what he wants people to think? -The Disk Jockey 16/46: Fatal Error Name: <<< Knight Lightning 2 >>> Date: 8:02 am Fri May 08, 1987 Its a good theory, but I believe the incident was real. :Knight Lightning 17/46: Any one else?? Name: <<< Mad Hatter 51 >>> Date: 2:32 pm Fri May 08, 1987 Any in else in the "Phreakdom" die? That seems weird. I get the feeling of a society without death/diseases/etc.. No, for the current Votee.... -Hatter 18/46: Death..... Name: <<< The Disk Jockey 13 >>> Date: 7:28 pm Fri May 08, 1987 Ever hav that you know die? It's always someonwho you know, but never really think about. It's wierd as hell, and it makes you wonder if you are next. Ever wonder what death is like? I guess it can't be imagined.... Ever get really stoned and just sit and try to compare FUCK IT.....I'll stick to new scanning, I don't even know what the hell I am doing....! -The Disk Jockey 19/46: In general Name: <<< Knight Lightning 2 >>> Date: 12:19 am Sat May 09, 1987 And for the record this is on the wrong sub, the idea of death in the phreak world has really been "getting busted" or "retiring." That is the only way we can really think about it in our society, I mean cause phreaks just don't die everday, but they do get busted about that often, so that gives us a more realistic view if we were to look at the phreak zone as a true realm. :Knight Lightning 20/46: FE (again) Name: <<< Phantom Phreaker 46 >>> Date: 2:28 am Sat May 09, 1987 Fatal Error 617 died from a motorcycle accident while riding in his woods. Micro Man (617, was sysop of Newsweek BBS) called me and told me this on July 3, 1986. I guess no one else heard about this for a while, I remember the date because it was right before the fourth of July. FE 617 was into COSMOS and ran Metropolis, as someone said. FE 313 is a vocal phreaker and (as far as I know) doesn't have a modem. 21/46: really Name: <<< Lucifer 666 43 >>> Date: 2:35 am Sun May 10, 1987 KL & Tk gasp! print false info ? gasp! anyways, exactly how much fun can it be to be a diverter expert? 22/46: FE's Name: <<< Control C 8 >>> Date: 11:22 am Sun May 10, 1987 FE 313 is alive and well, I don't think he has a modem but he's in some group with that Nacka of the north (or what ever his name is) randy you should have his number around somewhere.. Control .s oops 23/46: Galactus Name: <<< Doom Prophet 21 >>> Date: 10:57 pm Sun May 10, 1987 I sorry butz I say no to Galactus...I don't think he's good enough to be on MSP (not saying I am good either). Some of the stuff here is not fit for thte irresponsible...I don't believe that he is 21 for some strange reason. Oh well trying not to discriminate but I say definately no. Doomy 24/46: Galactus..... Name: <<< The Disk Jockey 13 >>> Date: 6:43 am Mon May 11, 1987 Doom's right.....fuck 'em. I don't buy for a second that he's 21. -The Disk Jockey 25/46: Add Name: <<< Knight Lightning 2 >>> Date: 6:48 pm Mon May 11, 1987 I myself was unimpressed by his resume and the conversation we (Taran and I) had with Galactus clearly has left a mark with me that he doesn't deserve a place on MSP at this time. :Knight Lightning 26/46: NO Name: <<< Phantom Phreaker 46 >>> Date: 7:24 pm Tue May 12, 1987 My vote on Galactus is NO. Yes, I am conceited as hell, an asshole, etc. I always feel like a jerk when I vote 'NO' because I feel like a segragationist. 27/46: I feel the same. Name: <<< Evil Jay 26 >>> Date: 9:05 am Wed May 13, 1987 Galactacus (whatever the fuck his name is) is a knowledgeable person, but I think he could still go awhile before getting let on. Sigh, he is a Prime person tho (hell, practically inspired me to write a Prime file when I read that pathetic thing from way back). Still, its no. -The Big J 28/46: Guess its No, yes? Name: <<< Knight Lightning 2 >>> Date: 5:44 pm Wed May 13, 1987 Looks like there has been an overwhelming vote of dissapproval of Galactus becoming a member here. Whats the woid Taran? :Knight Lightning 29/46: theres no way Name: <<< Lex Luthor 36 >>> Date: 10:46 am Fri May 15, 1987 There is no way Galactus "knows very well" all those OS's I would say 3 operating systems is the maximum for most hackers as far as a complete (its never really complete) knowledge of OS's is concerned. Hell I know VMS, UNIX, and VM/CMS very well but thats it. The rest I know enough to get around in. OS's are like languages, people know a few words in spanish or french but don't know how to speak fluently in those languages, but they still tell people they can. That is what hackers do. I find this mainly on their applications. Most hackers specialize in one operating system. Sometimes they move on and specialize in others, sometimes they stick to the one they like. More ramblings from Lex 30/46: ummmmm. Name: <<< Lucifer 666 43 >>> Date: 2:11 am Sun May 17, 1987 but what if he unleashes with full force! hmmmm. isnt this nice. our own little democracy...sort of.. ourvote = 3% randy's = 97% notice.... the above 31/46: Galac. Name: <<< The Sensei 18 >>> Date: 6:37 pm Thu May 21, 1987 Galac., doesn't sound like a honest to goodness hacker. He probably calls us his local UNIX system and uses defaults to hack it out. Sounding sarcastic, but you know how it is. 1987 for users is really lousy. What are the specifications for electing a new person to the system. I have someone of interest. Ts 32/46: Users... Name: <<< Taran King 1 >>> Date: 7:07 pm Thu May 21, 1987 The user must be experienced in some manner or have a good general knowledge of telecommunications. If you wish for someone to get access here, have them make out an application for themselves, get it from them, and then upload it to the D: drive on the AE and I'll put it up as a message. We shall wait until Galactus shows himself more worthy of being on the board. Now we come to the problem with Solid State. He was kicked off not too long ago but he wants back on (I guess). One way or another, he said he'd be writing up "his side" of the story so at least we'll all get to hear what he has to say for himself. Life is a bitch... -TK 33/46: well... Name: <<< Sir Francis Drake 56 >>> Date: 7:01 pm Fri May 22, 1987 just to get my remarks in early...Iv talked to State & Stan about it and I think State should be let back on. He was kicked off because he SUPPOSEDLY read msgs to/gave his pswd to Stanly. Now this info mainly came from Stan who would claim that he used states password "all the time". Now since, stan is such a notorious liar the whole thing is obviously questionable. Now another main complaint (from what ive gathered talking to KL) is that State would not tell TK/KL how Stan gets on MSP even though State apparently knows. This may sound sorta lame, but if State starts telling on stan he wont be trusted, and it would be lame of him. So it would seem that as long as State does not further help stand (which is EXTRENELY unlikely even if he ever did) Stan he should be let back on as he was/will be a "valuable user". so there. sfd 34/46: Wrong... Name: <<< Taran King 1 >>> Date: 7:10 pm Fri May 22, 1987 I don't want to start a debate because Craig's gonna be here real soon preaching about everything but I'd just like to have it stated that I've got a neutral 3rd party that was on a conversation between Stan and Nate where Nate was reading posts from MSP, which I had previously told him was grounds for deletion from MSP if he read them to Stan. Thank you and here's my address -TK 35/46: Preech! Name: <<< Knight Lightning 2 >>> Date: 11:58 pm Sat May 23, 1987 This is true. In OQ's own word's "Nate is my partner in crime." Now perhaps you may call OQ a liar or say he is bluffing, but their friendship exists for better or for worse. Now both OQ and SS claim to have at least 3 or more accounts on here anyway and Stan would like his own account to post with as well (yeah yeah, why'd you even mention it KL, it'll never happen). As good a hacker that State is, I am not convinced that he should be trusted in any aspect towards the system especially since he has aided succesful attempts to breech its security. I mean, thats just the way it is, nothing seems to ever change, etc. One other thing to mention, its not like we "owe" anyone an account and although I suppose I have a lot of pull, Taran King will have the final say. :Knight Lightning 36/46: Solid S. Name: <<< The Sensei 18 >>> Date: 7:25 am Sun May 24, 1987 I don't know Solid too good....just that he's one a specific system 24hrs a day, it seems. I think he's just a modem kid out for a fun ride. Let'em cool for a year. You can't blame a guy for hacking ANY system though. I'm split. Ts 37/46: s. state Name: <<< The Leftist 71 >>> Date: 4:38 pm Mon May 25, 1987 Solid State in my opinion is a dick, and shouldnt be let on any system, much less this one.. 38/46: Nate Name: <<< The Executioner 19 >>> Date: 9:50 pm Tue May 26, 1987 Anyone ever look up the word "Nate" in the dictionary??? It means... "VArious forms of semi-aquatic salamanders" OOOOPS! That's Newt, I mean Lock Lifter.....eeeek!! Nate - The skin that stretches from the opening of an anal cavity to the base of the penis. Enough said.... 39/46: Nates Name: <<< Mad Hatter 51 >>> Date: 10:45 pm Sat May 30, 1987 Nates - (N) The buttocks from Webster's 20,000 word dictionary.

It was sort of like an "elite" subboard for people who he liked and thought knew a bit to contribute to the subboard's conversation. Many of the messages here were deleted because of the "date-to-deletion" feature of the board and having most of the messages that filled this subboard being clustered in one period a while ago. 1/6: 201 DDial...

Sort of something to do with your absolutely-nothing-to -do-time. Later -TK 2/6: Back Again. Name: High Evolutionary 28 Date: 1:08 am Thu Apr 30, 1987 Hello, Isn't it funny.. I plan to call boards again and again because I get a little free time on my hands. But then, when I start, something else comes up. I should stop babbling.. I am probably boooring you. For apparent lack of discussion here, could someone maybe fill me in on what has been happening lately in the phreak/hack society? I've yet to get the past few PWNs. -High Evolutionary -Tok 3/6: High Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 7:06 pm Thu Apr 30, 1987 In general, SummerCon is the big thing that people are talking about. There is also some new disputes and controversy about the return of Oryan Quest and his "supposed" running away from home. :Knight Lightning 4/6: Ah.. Name: High Evolutionary 28 Date: 11:58 pm Fri May 01, 1987 KL, I've also heard that some serious wars are being waged w/ OQ or something to that extent...Mind explaining it to me? Evolutionary 5/6: Wars? Name: Knight Lightning 2 Date: 10:20 am Sat May 02, 1987 As far as I know, there are no wars currently in progress but in the past, Oryan QUEST went and did MBs on Doc Holiday, The Executioner, and both of Taran King's phone lines. He has also repeatedly tried to gain illegal access on this system and somehow got Nate to help him do it. Then he has proceeded to harass MSP members about their posts. However, if there is a war, it is one sided because everyone is pretty much ignoring Quest. Hmm... I wonder why my account had 4 illegal logons...? :Knight Lightning 6/6: Logons Name: Taran King 1 Date: 10:29 am Sat May 02, 1987 Those illegal logons that most of you LOD type people will experience when logging on were probably not QUEST. I've got an idea and I suppose most of you might too, but I'm not concerned with it. -TK Post on Royal Court?

PWN ^*^ ^*^ PWN ^*^ PWN ^*^ PWN { SummerCon '88 } PWN ^*^ PWN ^*^ PWN Welcome to Phrack World News Issue XX. Whew! Issue 20 already? I have been gone too long. This issue features the exclusive coverage of SummerCon 1988, which took place in St. Louis, Missouri during the weekend of July 22-24, 1988. Before we get to the bulk of the issue I'd like to make a note that this year's turnout was even greater than last year's with the majority of those claiming they would attend, actually showing up... we had a great time. -KL Please Note: All the events depicted in this story are based on the observations as seen by Knight Lightning (me). PreCon '88; A Little Background ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When Taran King and I went off to college, Sir Francis Drake picked up running Phrack Inc. and PWN. Taran gave the rights to SummerCon to Sir Francis Drake as well, although it was not really his right to give away. At any rate, SFD intended to hold SummerCon '88 in New York City, possibly by trying to get Bill >From RNOC or Tuc to help him out, since SFD lived out on the west coast. A lot of publicity was put out in both 2600 Magazine and WORM (a hardcopy magazine for "cyberpunks" written and distributed by Sir Francis Drake himself). However, eventually it became quite clear that SummerCon '88 would not be held in NYC, at least not by SFD. In the meantime, there was quite a bit of controversy concerning SummerCon '88 on a bulletin board known as The Forgotten Realm, run by Crimson Death 618. Apparently the members of TFR were trying to figure out where to have the convention. Control C said that he would hold SummerCon '88 in Detroit, Michigan, but the only person who really liked that idea was Ax Murderer. Eventually it came down to two places; New York City or St. Louis, Missouri. The discussion went on for over a month with everyone leaning heavily towards St. Louis. The clincher came when Prime Suspect received word from myself, that we were indeed planning SummerCon '88 here in St. Louis. So on June 19, 1987 (the ONE year anniversary of SummerCon '87) Crimson Death contacted Phantom Phreaker to get to Taran King who in turn passed the word on to me and I called Crimson Death. We set the date and as such, the actual preliminary planning for SummerCon '88 had begun. Crimson Death sent the word out and I finally had a chance to release the idea I had conceived two months prior... The Phoenix Project. The new millennium has begun and the rebirth of the phreak/hack community has been achieved. In fact, this rebirth is currently evident in a more physical fashion on a fairly new bulletin board earning its name from my idea... - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The Phoenix Project 300/1200/2400 Baud (512) 754-8182 Brought to you by The Mentor! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - SummerCon '88; Not As Planned... Friday Morning, July 22, 1988 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Coincidentally, Tuc was again this year's first arrival from out of town. Taran King, Forest Ranger, and I arrived at the airport to greet him and after some hassle at Lambert Field, we grabbed some lunch and went to this year's official SummerCon hotel; the Ramada Inn - Westport. >From here things did not go exactly to plan. Over three weeks in advance I had reserved a double room in Forest Ranger's name to serve as the Phrack Inc. room or whatever as sort of a base of operations. Ramada had a super savers weekend promotion going on all through summer where a limited number of rooms (doubles) could be purchased for a special weekend rate of $33.90. Well I was sure to get this rate and was given a reservation identification number. However, the check-in counter at first denied this and then finally pulled up the file. They insisted that the room was for $68.00 and that was what we were told. They were incorrect. At about this time, Taran and I had wandered into the main lobby where we were confronted by a guy who subtly said, "Are you here for SummerCon ?" It was The Dictator, who had come from Phoenix, Arizona (602 NPA). He had already gotten a room (211) at the ridiculous price of $68.00. Unfortunately, we still had a problem, because the hotel supervisor insisted that we weren't 21 anyway and by Missouri State Law they could not legally rent us a room at any rate. This is when I jumped in saying we had reserved the room for Tuc who was 22 and I had been promised the rate of $33.90. The supervisor began to tell some story of a computer error (yeah right) and the person who guaranteed the room was wrong. I argued that it was their problem and not ours if there was indeed this computer error and that this gross display of bad business and false advertising would be reported to the Better Business Bureau. In the meantime Tuc, Taran, and Forest Ranger had grabbed a copy of the Southwestern Bell Yellow Pages (it really is easier to let your fingers do the walking) and were checking out other hotels in the Westport area. My biggest concern was for all the guests driving in who thought we would be at the Ramada. It was not long before the hotel supervisor had spoken to the hotel manager and they offered us the room for a flat rate of $40.00. We took it. The rooms were quite nice actually and would serve our purposes well. Taran and I ran off on separate errands, while Forest Ranger and Tuc visited Westport Plaza to do some shopping. When Taran and I returned, we ran into another interesting person who said, "You guys here for SummerCon?" It was Dr. Cypher of Bellcore and with him was Mike (a non phreak/hack type, but cool just the same) and Hatchet Molly, a 23 year old graduate student at Northern Illinois University who was working on his thesis; the social atmosphere of the phreak/hack community or something like that. It was only about 20 minutes later when I wandered down to the lobby and found Lucifer 666 and Synthetic Slug checking in. Standing five feet behind them was another fearsome threesome made up of Crimson Death 618, Phrozen Ghost, and Surfer Bob. PG and SB had been visiting Crimson Death earlier that week prior to reaching SummerCon and they all arrived at the same time. Lucifer 666 and Synthetic Slug got a room, while the others crashed in the Phrack Inc. room. SummerCon '88; Back At Lambert Friday Afternoon, July 22, 1988 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It was time for another trip to the airport for me, Taran, Tuc, and Forest Ranger. We arrived just in time to meet up with The Mentor and Cisban Evil Priest. They were easy to spot because they were the only guys on the plane that were not wearing suits and/or did not have any children with them. Once greetings had taken place, Mentor unveiled a surprise -- buttons especially made for distribution at SummerCon '88. Created with a laser printer they displayed a large "NO FEDS" with a circle and line through it (like a No U-Turn sign), and also naming The Phoenix Project (the board), the baud rate, and phone number. He brought more than enough for everyone. After some running around the airport and a brief lounge at one of the airport's bars, we proceeded to meet up with Control C and Bad Subscript who had flown in from Detroit, Michigan. We divided up again and headed for the hotel. Taran King, Tuc, and Cisban Evil Priest rode with me while The Mentor, Control C, and Bad Subscript rode with Forest Ranger. Control C decided he was hungry and FR drove to the nearest McDonald's where he went on to cut off a customer in the drive-through lane and pulled right to the window to pick up some food... not his food, but who cares. "That will be $3.00, sir." "What exactly do I get for my $3.00?" "Two regular cheese burgers, a large fries, and a large Coke." "Okay!" They took it and left, leaving McDonald's in a total disarray for at least a half hour. The Mentor and Cisban Evil Priest as well as Control C and Bad Subscript both got rooms and from there SummerCon '88 really began. SummerCon '88; Let The Good Times Roll Friday Night, July 22, 1988 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Basically it was just a big party from here on, with the old phreaks meeting the new, and some re-acquaintances. Control C brought down some gifts as well -- posters from Michigan Bell. "I would shred everything, because we get so much information out of the dumpster, it's unreal..." It was signed by Control C himself and he told us that these posters now appear in all Michigan Bell central offices and other places of business. The picture on the poster featured Control C's own personal stash that he had gotten from Michigan Bell. We had some other guests arrive during the night. Terminal Technocrat and a friend of his (who did have a handle, but I didn't catch it) arrived from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A friend of Forest Ranger's named Mike also showed up with Kari, Cary, Katie, Susie, and Amy [some serious bitches]. The main party ran through The Dictator's room until a series of threatening calls from the front desk forced TD to clear everyone out of his room. In the meantime, Cary (a nymphomaniac 14-year old) was running up Tuc's phone bill and hitting on everyone at the convention. She ended up with Cisban Evil Priest in his room (that he shared with The Mentor). However, since clearing out of The Dictator's room the majority of the party crew all ran into Mentor and Priest's room causing quite a disturbance. When The Mentor heard about this he ran to his room and threw them all out. This action set the rest of the night's activities to a certain theme -- The Fury of Forest Ranger. You see Forest Ranger was quite a bit drunk and became incredibly pissed off when he found out that his friends were mistreated. A few of us returned to The Dictator's room where FR made several threatening phone calls to The Mentor and was promptly hung up on. Apparently that was the last straw because FR went into an unstoppable rage that trashed most of the items in the room and then he started through the hotel. After damaging several items in the hotel hallways, Forest Ranger proceeded to attack a light fixture in the emergency stairwell and in doing so, sliced his hand open on the newly broken glass. Emergency measures were called for -- Tuc and Lucifer 666 played rescue team and took Forest Ranger to a not so nearby United States Air Force Hospital in Illinois, where Forest Ranger was stitched up. After the excitement, most of the people at the convention had mellowed out and Dr. Forbin left to take Cary home (we still don't know what happened to the two of them, but rumor is that Forbin is making a tremendous recovering from several serious venereal diseases.) At some point this evening Terminal Technocrat, Dr. Cypher, and a few others decided to go on a trashing run. It didn't really turn out as planned and they ended up at Southwestern Bell Publications (where the cameras are almost as big as the dumpsters). It was unsuccessful, but at least there were no casualties. The final interesting part of this evening was the arrival of The Leftist and The Ur-Vile from Atlanta, Georgia. This arrival is important to make a note of because with the exception of the time spent immediately after they got to the hotel, The Ur-Vile spent the entire remainder of SummerCon '88 asleep. SummerCon '88; So What Now? Saturday, July 23, 1988 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Just about everyone went to Union Station, a luxurious shopping mall in downtown St. Louis. However, a few of us including Taran King and myself arrived at the hotel in time to meet our final guests for the weekend -- Phantom Phreaker and Doom Prophet. Taran King and myself took a Crimson Death back to TK's to let him copy some unreleased files for Phrack Inc. (since he had been running it at the time). However, now those files will be put out by the original Phrack team. The main part of the convention started sometime after that and I presented the second public hearing of the now famous Dan The Operator/John Maxfield and the Dan The Operator/Il Duce (Phiber Optick) recordings which were featured in Phrack World News XV, which was published last year. I have decided to make this an annual event and those wishing a copy of the tape should get in contact with me through Epsilon, The Prophet, or through Bitnet. Unfortunately, the most important information learned at this year's convention cannot be published. However, when looking at the amount and the extent of information brought forth at this year's convention, it makes last year's look like a day at pre-school. If the level jumps like this next year, I think that the world had better watch out because today's phreak/hacks are definitely getting smarter and better every year. The key is to stay out of trouble long enough to gain experience that will keep you out of trouble. The Leftist brought a terminal with him and it would have been a great "toy" to have at the convention except no one had the extra phone cord necessary to put it to good use. The rest of Saturday evening was just a mix of story telling, partying, and some deep technical discussions. There was some element of danger present. It would seem that because of the trouble from the previous evening that the hotel management had arranged to have some extra security present in case things got out of hand. The Maryland Heights police force sent a pair of officers over, and they were indeed the rudest individuals I have ever met. At one point in the evening, Lucifer 666 and I had traveled down to the lobby by way of the stairs and when arrived, the greetings from "officer friendly" reminded me of last SummerCon's police incident ("Run to me boys!"). (We were wearing our "NO FEDS" pins during this incident) "You two come here, NOW!" "What? Waitasec we are guests here (holding up keys)." "I can't see that far, you come here, NOW!" "Why did you take the stairs instead of the elevator!?" "The elevator was too slow, sir." "What are you doing down here?" "Going to the soda and candy machines." "I don't want any messing around here tonight, you got that!?" "Yes, we are not looking for problems." A couple of hours later, I had decided to go to my car to drop a few items off and found myself being followed by the same officer. After I had been to my car, I started back towards the hotel with this jerk eyeballing me. When I had reached the building I asked him... "Is there a problem officer?" "No, you got a problem!? Do you want to have a problem!?" "Nope." After this incident I returned everyone's room keys, exited the hotel by a back stairway, hopped into my car and pulled around to the front where the lobby and the two officers were. I calmly honked a couple of times and with my lights off so as not to reveal my plates, gave them "the bird." I left the area at a rather fast pace after that. SummerCon '88; All Good Things Must Come To An End Sunday, July 24, 1988 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ By the time I returned on Sunday morning, Terminal Technocrat and his friend had long since been gone as well as Dr. Cypher, Hatchet Molly and Mike. The rest of us hung out for a while as we prepared to pack everything up and send everyone home. The Leftist, The Ur-Vile, Lucifer 666, and Synthetic Slug had to cruise and in the meantime I took Tuc, Control C, and Bad Subscript to the airport breaking five speed limits in order for them to catch their newly scheduled flights. After which this left me, Forest Ranger, Phantom Phreaker, Doom Prophet, The Mentor, Cisban Evil Priest, Crimson Death, Phrozen Ghost, and Surfer Bob. We were soon joined by Amy and Katie and we all headed out to the St. Louis Galleria, another shopping plaza. On the way, we toured through some of StL's richer sections of town and as we went on became separated from Forest Ranger in downtown Clayton. After five minutes of massive confusion we were once again on track and eventually met up with Forest Ranger and Surfer Bob who was with him at a music store inside the plaza. We killed about two hours there between lunch, Phrozen Ghost's Unix Manual heist from B. Dalton Booksellers, and the Phantom Phreaker/Doom Prophet Vs. "Goons From Hell" skateboard confrontation. So after all was said and done, Forest Ranger took Crimson Death, Phrozen Ghost, and Surfer Bob back to Ramada to get their car, Phantom Phreaker and Doom Prophet hit the highway, and The Mentor and Cisban Evil Priest went with me back one last time to Lambert Field, where I dropped them off. And that was SummerCon '88 ... _______________________________________________________________________________ PostCon '88; Some Things To Make A Note Of... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This year's SummerCon posters were made by Knight Lightning and they featured AT&T, MCI, U.S. Sprint and the FON card, Southwestern Bell, ISDN diagrams, Pink Floyd, Domino's Pizza, and many other interesting items including; Oryan QUEST! "I *Demand* you attend SummerCon!" "I demand to be let back on MSP! or I will UNLEASH with FULL FORCE (and put a maintenance busy on you!)" To obtain a copy of this poster contact Epsilon, The Prophet or try and find me on Bitnet. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Control C and The Mentor were both made members of the Legion Of Doom/Hackers. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Mentor's now famous Hacker's Manifesto which was first released in Phrack Inc. Issue VII appeared in the September issue of Thrasher Magazine. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Dictator is looking for users to call his bulletin board... The Dark Side (Commodore 128) 602-789-9269 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Who Was This Year's Fed/Informant? I have some strong possibilities about that, , but there is an interesting twist to the story. On Monday evening, July 25, 1988, Forest Ranger claimed that he had received a call (from a source he refused to disclose) stating that Secret Service was indeed at SummerCon '88 and were in room 209 (right next to 211 - The Dictator's room) and another room supposedly under Control C and Bad Subscript's room. There were reports of supposed Secret Service agents at Ramada, but the general idea was that even if they were legitimate, it was because of Democratic Presidential nominee Govenor Michael S. Dukakis, who was visiting St. Louis that weekend. When I heard all of this, I paid no attention to it because the way it was described, it was just a bunch of jerks being pesky about the "NO FEDS" pins. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Special Thanks goes to Epsilon and Crimson Death. Without their help, there would not have been a SummerCon this year and thanks to their efforts, I will see to it that there will be a SummerCon for many years to come. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- According to Dr. Cypher, Byteman was supposed to fly down to St. Louis for the convention, but ran into a mishap with airport security. In his carry-on bag he had several switch blade knives and six blue boxes, which at the time were believed to be detonators for some kind of explosive. After being held at the airport, Byteman was met by the FBI who had verified that the items in question were not detonators, however they did recognize what they were and now Byteman is facing charges of conspiracy to commit toll fraud, etc. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Crimson Death claims to have received a call from John F. Maxfield a few days preceding SummerCon '88. Apparently he wanted an invitation to the convention. Nevertheless, he did not show up. Also, there was some talk about Richard Sandza going to SummerCon, but he was not there either. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ramada Inn Lost And Found: - Has anyone seen the 1981 Employee Of The Month Plaque? - Whoever took it must have been out of CONTROL. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SummerCon '88 Guest List ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bad Subscript / Cisban Evil Priest / Control C / Crimson Death Dr. Cypher / Dr. Forbin / Doom Prophet / Forest Ranger / Hatchet Molly Knight Lightning / Lucifer 666 / Phantom Phreaker / Phrozen Ghost Surfer Bob / Synthetic Slug / Taran King / Terminal Technocrat / The Dictator The Leftist / The Mentor / The Ur-Vile / Tuc Plus; Katie, Cary, Kari, Amy, Susie, Mike1, Mike2, and Terminal Technocrat's friend.
