Subject: Altering Stock Records

>>>>>[ The East Coast StockNet has had plenty of experience with deckers
altering files. As a result, they're quite paranoid about security.
at the close of every buisness day, their system runs a complex set of
diagnostics, checking thier files against the financial records of all
clients. If the system finds any discrepancies, the operators are
instructed to consult non-Matrix records and stage an inquiry. It's
a real mess. ]<<<<<

>>>>>[ OK, here's the MagnaTech equation. Start with one underachiving
microtronics company, add one demolished office building, a chopper
that nobody saw, a Dragon with an Aircraft Carrier who likes to take
over companies, and a MagnaTech strike team that wants to attack the
Dragon's floating fortress. How could this get worse you ask? Well
I'll tell you!!! MagnaTech has managed to find and hire that VatJob
assassin Tommy "the dragon" Harada that escaped Metro a few days ago.
This has not made the news nets yet, and I'm shure that Magna won't
let it get there either. By the way, Magna still hasn't put it's
systems back on line. It's been over a week now, too long for a total
shutdown. They've probably cut their Matrix connections to prevent
intrusions until this mess blows over. Maybe I will take a trip down
to Magna's R&D center, It's been a while since I've been in New Jersey.
Magna will probably use the attack to cover Harada's insertion into the
intrepid, or maybe they've got another use for him. ]<<<<<

>>>>>[ Hey Elf! Ever wonder where MagnaTech has been getting all the NuYen
to hire up a small army, a VatJob on the LAM, and operate without
matrix access for a week, especially during a takeover attempt. There's
more to MagnaTech than meets the eye. ]<<<<<
