Acronyms 02

It’s amazing that my first Acronym’s text file went over so well! So, here’s the second and much larger companion to it…Acro 2. Yeah, I know 2 days is a long, long wait for a file. If I keep this up, I will probably have more numbers than I know what to do with. Anyways, my list of numbers keeps growing and circulation for these text files is ever- increasing! Of course, I could always use more numbers and more people to help me spread this rather small series. Hey, what’s 2 or 4k for some of you runners? Anways, I don’t mind the file going around, as I don’t feel there’s anything illegal about telling What certain letters stand for what! If I’m wrong, someone tell me…By the Way, if I leave your group out or just haven’t put it in yet. Send me e-mail as to EXACTLY how you would like it to appear. I don’t do, no full screen ANSI/ASCII folks. But I would like contributions to the series. Such as my group is “Lame0 Cracker’s of America” and we go by LCA! That’s about all I need. Don’t really need a history or anything..just what ya stand for. So, here’s your chance to get your group famous! You know know where to find me!

Welp, so much for another issue of Acronyms! I’m sure I will have a ton more for you next time. The file looks like it’s gonna get bigger each and every time I put one out. After I have done every acronym I can think of I MAY put out a complete guide to acronyms with the entire list in one file. This is a slight chance right now, as I have too much backed up on other fronts.

Well, as usual, I have my Howdy’s! Hey goes out to all the royal 513/606 home front! Especially to Insanus Maximus, Lestat, and Akira to name a few. On the Long distance side, hey to my friends in 415, 416, 818, 904, and especially those in 619! {Yeah, I get around!} On the Looong, long far off front, I want to say hi to all the cool folks I found in 011+81+1, and those in 001+46+8. You’ll be hearing from me soon!

Now for a new section! The Booos! Boos go out to Pirate Inc for Copying the name of Pirate Mag and Phrack INC at the same time. 9600 lamer boards that lock out 2400 callers just cuz they are slower! {I don’t care HOW much you paid for your stupid modem! I’ve seen 2400 baud callers post more and that have more files than you can wet-dream about!} People that crash the Net! And last but not least..those rotten Narc’s {not the group!} that tell fed’s about everyone and anyone! May you all rot in hell!

Stay free and keep reading the files!
