>>>>>[Word of warning.  Had a Bravo come through my hands a little while ago and the thing is every bit as terrible of an implementation of a bad idea as you think it is.  Putting a sword on a bullpup rifle means you lose all the benefits of the configuration while maintaining all the immediate action headaches.  I broke a lamp clearing a double feed in the middle of my first magazine on the range, and sold the thing to some wannabe up in Weehawken the next day.  The updated SCAR does sound tempting, though.]<<<<<

>>>>>[Yeah, I've seen the Bravo's stats and am less than impressed. However, for what I have in mind, it won't be an issue. Even a craptastic weapon can be useful, one just has to get creative is all.]<<<<<

>>>>>[For the love of... could someone please tell me why every script kiddie and her brother has a persona with a hundred-year-old circuit pattern and is using a drek-cheap attack program coded to look like a frisbee of all things? A few had to learn the important lesson of No Poking The Weird Drake.]<<<<<

>>>>>[Greetings programs!
     KCM, Knight Classic Movies, just released a remastered version on all 11 of the old Tron Films, completely upgraded to full trid compatibility.  THe disks come from those films.  A lot of these kids never saw the films, and since there's some evidence that points to them being the inspiration for the early design of the Matrix, it's gained a serious resurgence in popularity.  If you've never seen them, do yourself a favor and do so.  Just remember, they're old.  Really, really old.  So don't expect the best special effects.  Remastering can only do so much for these old flatscreen films (Even though films 2 and up were filmed in what was laughably called 3D back in the day). 
     Dad got me the collectors set for Christmas.  I've been watching them for the last three days.  Wheeee!]<<<<<

>>>>>[Tron? Sounds like the noise a 40mm makes when it bounces off armor plating. Never been one for the older "flats", as my brother called them. Although Grandpa did like the classic war movies, mainly by some slot named Wayne. Flying Tigers, Sands of Iwo Jima, In Harm's Way, Green Berets...Watched them all when I was a kid with Gramps. Maybe I'll get my comm guy to score some copies, might make for a nice distraction this week.]<<<<<

>>>>>[Yo guys, thought I'd check in. Those Newbies I'm keeping an eye on for Mr. Johnson are an interesting bunch, ones gone missing though, just stopped answering her Comm. Their hackers had no luck tracking her, maybe the Dryad finally couldnt Glamour her way out of somthing. The mage shows potential.. I almost had to tep in to stop the team geeking him after a Goblin infected him. The Hacker stood up for him and eventually the mage made it through the change, he's still getting used to being a goblin though. Well my Signal in the NY Undergrounds sketchy at best, so before it drops, Merry Christmas all!]<<<<<

>>>>>Ho! Ho! Ho! I bring you presents, people. When you're done stuffing your bellies with Christmas-flavored soy chunks, check out all those new job offers i posted. Yeah, that's my job now, and I'm not planning on bailing anytime soon. I like it here.
So, Merry Christmas, everyone.]<<<<<

>>>>>[Ah, Christmas in the Shadows. A good day so far, not been shot at yet. Got some soykaf and pseudopocky, hanging out while waiting for a timer. Faked a few invoices, got to play Santa Claws to a buncha barrens kids. Can't afford many freebies but damn is that one worth it.]<<<<<
