I wonder how the Hub operator feels about all these [large] black
encryptions on the system. Amazing how they just come out of the
woodwork, no? *I* really wish that it was so easy to write black
encryptions. There is a reason why corps don't use all that much
Black IC, much less encryptions, because they are either hard as
hell to program or they are expensive as hell to buy. Oh well, off
for a vacation....

The reason I just used one is that it is a UCAS military prototype, based off
an actual vehicle(thanks to whoever gave me the idea, the Stonewall MBT Black
IC). Would you want to get in the way of a very large hovertank with a railgun
and over 3 missile launchers? I wouldn't. Besides, the persons who sent it
to Wizard were part of an orginization that do things like this. It costs
them LOTS and takes forever to program them, but they sell them to the
Military, so they can charge a lot too. I used to do lots of Black programs,
mostly from Solitaire directed at Dante, but after hearing the complaints here
about it, I cut them down to special occasions only. I figured this qualified
as a special occasion.

I was referring to the messages son after labeled "*****ENCRYPT BLACK
PHOENIX", can't recall by who. There were at least two or three relatively
mundane posts labelled like that and it seemed like people jumping on a
bandwagon.... Heck, I'm not even sure whoever did those is even on here,
I just wanted to make semi-snide comments. =)


Daaaaang, I can really get people defensive lately. Hmmm, pheromones?
