//…Loading Custom Scripts
//…Reticulating Splines
//…Shadowland 4.7 Is Now Loaded.  Thank You.

>>>>>[Welcome to the new Shadowland 4.7!  I’m not going to bother giving you all the boring details behind what’s new with this version of the software.  Suffice it to say, it’s got some better security and has some better data compression rates.  Deon’t try fragging with the backend though, chummers, or I’ll kick your hoops back to the stone age.]<<<<<

>>>>>[Oh frag.  I wasn’t expecting to see that when I booted this up.  Damn.  Ghosts from the past.  I never really knew Cap, except by reputation and in passing.  We didn’t hang out or anything.  But still, he was a chummer.  One of the old guard.  I’d take him by my side over any 10 of these kids today that call themselves “hackers”.  Too many of them are gone now.  This biz chews you up and spits you out like day old soy-burgers.
     Well, that was a bit more melancholy than I expected for the grand opening of Virtual Underworld 93.  There’s a lesson there for you, though.  No matter how smart you are, no matter how good you are, no matter how long you’ve been doing this…you can still be surprised.
     Here’s to Cap, and all those who came before.  May we honor their memory, while we try to avoid becoming memories.]<<<<<

>>>>>[Ok.  So you set up a new BBS, using some code that's older than dirt.  I used to play with this code like Legos when I was 10, remember?  You're too damn sentimental, old man.  It's gonna be the death of you someday.  Seriously.  Have any of you actually worked with MacCallister yet?  He carries a goddamn cyebrdeck around still.  Well, to be fair, it's just the 'deck case.  He's got a top of the line Commlink inside the thing, so don't let him fool you.  But still.  Can you imagine having to actually go on a shadowrun lugging something like that around?]<<<<<

>>>>>[Woah, funky formatting.  This is a bit different than ShadowSEA,
     Anyway, I'm intern down at the Governor's office.  Apparently there's some big push by the meta-rights groups going on.  Anyone know what that's all about?]<<<<<

>>>>>[Just came back from a midnight run to the Stuffer Shack and McHugh's. Some damn fool street gang tried to hold the Shack up while I was there. Led to a firefight between them, me and some other 'concerned citizens. I swear it's gonna take me a week to wash the blue goo out of my dreads.
     Ever happen to anyone else?]<<<<<

>>>>>[It's funny, Bear.  I've been doing this for over 20 years, and almost every runner has a story about when they were first starting out, and how some drekhead gangers tried to rob a Stuffer Shack, leading to a firefight.]<<<<<

>>>>>[I don't get it.  Why rob the place?  They don't usually carry physical currency these days, do they?]<<<<<
     -- GnuB (10:45:43/09-06-72)

>>>>>[It depends.  They occasionally have some actual Corp Scrip lying around, and even more rarely some UCAS Dollars.  More often than not though, they're just there for the thrill and maybe to snag some Nuke-Em Burgers and some cheap booze.]<<<<<
