Excepting those he may have written himself, the enclosed items do not in any way represent the Editor's opinions. In fact, let's be real safe, and say that as far as this newsletter is concerned, he has no opinions at all. Okay? Good. =============================================================================== ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ************************** EDITORIALS AND LETTERS *************************** ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Well well well how very nice. Issue 10 is now out. And with it, school has started again at nearly every college and university across the nation, with the exception of UHa, due to management stupidity or something like that. So what does this mean? It means that there are now thousands of people on campuses, with bitnet access. And guess what? MANY OF THESE PEOPLE AREN'T M00SES. You may be aghast; I know I am. It is our clear duty to help these people by inviting them into our organization, unless, of course, you don't want to. And so begins THE ANNUAL FALL M00SE ILLUMINATI MEMBERSHIP DRIVE. Yes! Convince your friends to be m00ses! After all, if we're going to confuse the population, there's no better way than to get the population to help. On another note, I had an idea to fill up some space in this newsletter. Let me know what you think. Each issue, starting at the top of the general list and working our way down, we'll include a *short* ID-file type thing in the issue from one m00se. This will help us get to know those m00ses we've never come into personal contact with, and perhaps make the FBI's job a little easier if they're looking in. Hi guys! So, good idea, or horrid? Later, -Pickle. ><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< << I mentioned in an earlier letter that James L. Anderson (Andersen?) was not reachable. Apparently there is a gateway to Fidonet.... >> Actually, iif you have the mailer setup correct, you can send to (damn keyboardbounces) and if not you could try or @psuhcx.bitnet that is a valid address on theinternet. Bill ><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< << Kamikaze is again hard at work on MDNET Mk II, a new distribution network that will hopefully be more efficient and reliable. This is what he needs, respond to him or me. Please talk with the other m00ses at your node, so we don't get multiple volunteers. It will make Kami's job that much easier if we just get one "I'll do it" from each node. >> Pickle- What I need is a list of one person at each node who is willing to be a distributor, both for within his/her/its node as well as forwarding copies to other nodes, where needed. In the case of single person nodes, I need to know if that one person is willing/able to handle distributing to other nodes. The network model I am planning on creating will run along the same lines as how the Relay network runs, when it does. Basically, each distributor will send copies to all local users, any local nodes, and to the next major node in the network. It's not firm yet, as I haven't looked at the structure of where we are all located from this angle. this would be so nice if we had a member m00se at cunyvm....

Recruit him or her, if you do... >> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ******************************* EVENTS AND NEWS ******************************* ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- << Wolverine asked me to include his movement announcement in this issue.... >> "Papa was a rollin' stone Wherever he laid his hat was his home..." Yes folks, big news indeed. In my never-ending search for that illusive creature, "A Fruitful and Successful Life", I am moving on to Ithaca, NY. I will be living with Karen and John Godfrey, and can be reached there. As for the computer, I will have an account, but until I know what the userid is, I can be reached at Karen and John's account: B45J@CRNLVAX5. The move will be taking place this Thursday, so after Wednesday afternoon, send any mail to that account. To all my friends in the New York area, I'm looking forward to seeing all you guys and getting the chance to spend time with you, and to all my friends here in the area, don't forget about me, because I will be in the area periodically, and I want to keep in touch with all of you. Here's how to get in touch with me: Mail: Frank Orzechowicz 170 Myers Road Lansing, NY 14882 Phone: (607) 533-7786 [KEEP RUM] Bitnet: for now, B45J@CRNLVAX5 I'll be logged on days here at Villanova from now through 4 pm on Weds, and can be reached here. See you all around. "These little town shoes are longing to stray I wanna' be a part of it In New York And if I can make it there I'm gonna` make it anywhere It's up to you New York New York" << Note: Wolverine's account has is in the update. >> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ***************************** FICTION AND POETRY ****************************** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We have none this issue. I expect some for next issue, however. And incidentally, for a possible later story, how many of you play Car Wars? Get in touch with me if you do..... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *************************** MISCELLANEOUS NONSENSE **************************** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- << In the continuing expansion of the M00se Illuminati dictionary, this from GypsyLynx. >> footl00se m00se: any m00se who leaves his/her thr0ng and re-locates within another thr0ng. ie: W0lverine, Guardian Angel. ><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< << Lord Rassilon reminds us of other presidential candidates. >> Don't forget: 1) Max Headroom 2) Morris the Cat 3) Pat Paulsen and this year's leading candidate 4) Mickey Mouse. ><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>< << Lord Rassilon also sent this to me, although it came to him from another source.>> Propaganda has become almost an art form in recent years. While looking through a delightful book about people dressed in armor hacking eachother to pieces, I came across a beautiful chunk of it preceding a war. It comes in two parts: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Part I A. We are so numerous that we are starving. B. Therefore we must encourage still larger families so as to become yet more numerous and starving. C. When we are so numerous and starving as all that, obviously we shall have a right to take other people's stores of seed. Besides, we shall by then have a numerous and starving army. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- After part one has sunk in, and been employed, and the birth rate has been trebled, whether anyone is actually starving or not, part two is begun: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Part II A. We are more numerous than they are, therefore we have a right to their mash (food). B. They are more numerous than we are, therefore they are wickedly trying to steal our mash. C. We are a mighty race and have a natural right to subjugate their puny one. D. They are a mighty race and are unnaturally trying to subjugate our inoffensive one. E. We must attack them in self defense. F. They are attacking us by defending themselves. G. If we do not attack them today, they will attack us tomorrow. H. In any case, we are not attacking them at all. We are offering them incalculable benefits. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Kinda funny how it never sounds quite so ridiculous in real life. ---Fader ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *************** AND, OF COURSE, THE UBIQUITOUS M00SE LIST UPDATE ************** ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please add: Stony Brook thr0ng FNORD @ SBCCVM Fnord Washington State U. thr0ng 90289872 @ WSUVM1 Cthulhu And make the following changes: Wolverine's new address is B45J @ CORNELLA, not CRNLVAX5. He is still part of the Lansing thr0ng, however. Which brings us to the other change.....Lansing is no longer the location of a chapter, but a thr0ng.
