isn’t that the name of one of the clonecd serial numbers?




I am definitely in favor of the scene myself. And I wouldn’t dream of buying buggy software b4 a decent tryout. But I have to admit I do get ticked at these jerks that grab stuff off the net that someone else has cracked maybe, burns a master, then sell’s it. The jerk is making money off someone else’s work.

A typical overreaction by US-Authorities who is incompetent and feels paralysed, remember how Kevin Mitnick (The#1Hacker) was denied a cell-phone in prison because they thought he somehow could alter it to open the el-locks…? DO NOT GIVE IN ! NEVER GIVE UP PIRACY !!!

they just don’t understand. we cannot be stopped. chop off one head of the hydra, what happens? another one grows back. nuff said. HACK THE PLANET. Mega Corporations don’t care about you, i know. i used to be one of their pawns
