          Okay.. one of the busiest weeks in the utility scene has just
       finished..  there were not many games released but shitload of fine
       utils and cd-rips.  Looks like all major Microsoft programs were
       released in the last 7 days.  The main topic of the utility scene
       this week was, surely, whether DOD release of Windows 95 was a dupe
       or not, and what is the difference between it and previous NTA and
       SCUM versions. If you wanna know the whole story, and also read
       some comments about the activity of best utility groups - keep your
       eyes open on all shit listed below.

          PWA (Pirates With Attitude) - group had a nice week..not the
       best in their career but anyway very good.  They started with
       Arcada Backup Exec Server for Netware and finished with
       LONG-AWAITED-AND-MANY-TIMES-FAKED-AND-DUPED-BEFORE Microsoft Office
       95 on 24 disks. All scene warriors were already tired of
       neverending dupes and fakes of betas and PWA release came in time.
       We all count on PWA quality in this one. Also PWA released some
       fine HP title called Open View on 5 disks in the middle of the
       week, and huge CD-RIP of Borland C/C++ 4.53. PWA is the name that
       has much less fuckups than most other util groups, but coz of lack
       of coordination or smth we saw 2 freeware releases come from them
       too. Fixpack for OS/2 is not a cool release for such well-known
       label as PWA. Hope next week will be much better for this respected
       scene veterans.

          Score for this week: 7/10

          PNC (PINNACLE) - nice to see this new group growing each day!
       More and more releases are coming from them and now we can all see
       the huge progress in their work. Sure we can still see the lack of
       organization, but such releasing power is impressive.  PNC has
       shown to everybody that Microsoft is not taken fully by other
       groups like DOD or PWA and released few small things from there.
       Also, dring the weekend we saw long-awaited IBM developers
       programming hi-end - Visual Age C++ 3.0 for OS/2!  They also had a
       few not so popular releases, like Internet Chameleon CyberSpace and
       Taskforce Commander. If this group will continue it's fast progress
       - it may soon replace some older groups at the top!  Dudes.. look
       for it carefully.

          Score for this week: 9/10

          DOD (Drink Or Die) - What can i say..you all call boards and see
       the meggage we released this week.  DOD started the week with some
       new Microsoft products, including both versions of Intellitype for
       keyboards and mouse, and very powerful accounting program from
       world-famous Intuit software (QuickBooks Pro).  Also, I can mention
       a netware tool called Pathworks 4.1 for Windows NT from the
       well-known DIGiTAL Equipment.  We continued with some unknown MS
       Access addons called Total Access Analyzer and very cool but small
       program Hurricane 1.0 (best ram doubler/accelerator/win hdd and
       video cash). The top moment of the week for DOD was the release of
       Microsoft Visual Basic 4.0 Final and Windows 95 Final Full Pack.
       Many questions appeared after Win95 release.  Here I want to clear
       all shit to prevent any misunderstanding. DOD released THE store CD
       version of Windows 95. It is not called beta or release candidate
       or gold.  Thats a final copy that people will buy on 24th of
       August. Second difference from the previous SCUM and NTA releases
       of r6 - it is not an UPGRADE! You can simply install DOD's Windows
       95 over Win95 betas, Win or DOS environment. Also you all may have
       heard the rumor about time bomb placed in Win95 r6.  Nobody knows
       is it true or not except Bill Gates and many dudes dont want to
       risk!  DOD version of Win95 HAS no time bomb at all coz it is the
       final product.  Hope you will all quit asking me about Win95 after
       this explanation.  In the very last day of the week DOD finished
       the weekend with such monsters as MetaDESK 1.1.00 Client/Server and
       OmniPage 6.0 Professional!  Hope you all enjoyed our hard work for
       you.

          Score for this week: 10/10

          NTA (Nokturnal Trading Alliance) - oldest group in scene had
       several titles but many dudes missed them coz of the lack of
       trading. I can only mention one thing called Image Plus 2.0 for
       OS/2 that I personally got. Anyway our scene grandpa Mikeysoft
       doesn't want to give up! Count on more releases from him and his
       slaves soon.

          Score for this week: 6/10

          SCUM (SCUM is SCUM :) - SCUM was kinda slow this week.. just
       several betas happened like Hyperaccess 6.0 beta 3 for OS/2.. also
       some unknown products called: Mountain Splendor and Antony Casey
       Collection - 3 disks each. Same situation remaines in SCUM for a
       long time so such inactivity is not supri- sing. We all hope that
       this group will be more alive soon.

          Score for this week: 4/10

          Thats all about biggest util groups.. here i will just let you
       know about other new hot-shots of the week. we can see PANTERA
       releases pretty often for the last few weeks. They did have some
       dupes/fakes, but this group has the potential to participate in
       competiton sometime soon! X-FORCE shows us that they are still
       alive, but the quality of their releases is not high enough to
       write a special report about.  Also wanna mention some new group
       called SCSI.. specialized in cd-rips, we lately see some kick-ass
       utilities from them, like 3-D Studio 4c1 and some NT program in
       sunday.  All other groups are not worth the time to be added to
       this report.  Work better and we will make you well-known all over
       the world! C ya in the next issue of WWN!

    Well here it is! Warez Report #3 starting from 08/06/95 to 08/12/95!
 This week has really been a busy week by just looking at all the releases!
    In this week, you will find biggies such as PNT's WinNT Workstation, 
  PWA's 34 disker Borland C++ v4.53. And for OS/2 fans, PINNACLE brings you 
 their 51 disk release of VisualAge C++ for OS/2! We also find two MS Office 
 for Win95 releases.. One is 29 disks (mso95-xx.zip) and is rumored to be a 
  fake? Who knows.. To crush those rumors, PWA has released MS Office Real 
 Final for Win95 at 24 disks. As for Win95, DOD has released Win95 FullPack 
 Final at 17 disks. This is said to be the FINAL version of Windows 1995 ... 
   I hope that this weeks Warez Report will be very informative.... If you 
 have any suggestions or comments, leave feedback to mercury@escape.com!!!!!

           New and upcoming technology on the internet includes RealAudio,
       Java, and VRML.  These new add-ons to your high profile Web Browser
       give you the ability to do special things, and help to guide the
       technology into the future.  RealAudio gives you the ability to
       listen to music from the Internet in real- time (well, almost
       real-time).  Java is a new animation system similar to HTML that
       adds on to your Browser and gives you the ability to view animation
       and scrolling while on a website.  VRML is a new virtual reality
       add-on that lets you navigate a web site using "rooms" where you
       move your mouse or cursor "into" the site, and the page renders on
       the fly to give you a virtual reality perspective.

          Real Audio can be found at HTTP://WWW.REALAUDIO.COM.  If you do
       not have the Browser add-on for Netscape or Mosaic (hopefully you
       are not using Mosaic...) then go to that URL and choose to download
       it and make sure you follow the instructions as you install it.
       Once you have it installed, there are several sites that now
       support the RealAudio system... If you have your own site and would
       like to put real audio on the site so that people can listen to
       sound while viewing your own web page, there is an
       encoder/converter on the RealAudio link that will convert your .WAV
       and .VOC files into .RA or .AU files (Files used by Real Audio).
       The links on the RealAudio site include ABC on-line, SUN, and MUSIC
       EXPRESS just to name a few.  There is more and more music added
       daily, all of it commercial.

          Real Audio works on the principle that you do not need to
       download the complete audio file to play it.  The Real Audio system
       buffers upto 15 seconds of the music file so that it can still get
       a constant streaming of information (i.e. music) while it continues
       to play. This gives the Real Audio system the ability to keep up
       with the constant flow, and there is no dropping of notes
       occurring.  This method of transferring the music over the internet
       is very effective even for PPP connections down to 1200 BPS.  Java
       is a new and improved "HTML" scripting mark-up language that gives
       you the ability to see animation on a website.  Currently there are
       no browsers available for the Windows 95 system. There are browsers
       available for 32 bit Windows NT, and Solaris, as well as Indigo,
       and UNIX V (SunOS).  If you run Solaris, Solaris X86, Indigo/NeXT,
       or Windows NT, then make sure you go to the HTTP://JAVA.SUN.COM
       site to get the Browser for your particular operating system.

          This new technology is definitely something to check out since
       most web sites will support JAVA shortly.  There will be an add-on
       for Netscape for JAVA made shortly, both for the 16 bit and 32 bit
       versions.  The reasoning there is a new Browser all together is the
       fact that it is a new markup language, not centered around HTML
       3.0, which is what Netscape 1.1 is.  VRML is the kewlest add-on for
       your Browser right now, if you can get hold of it.  There are 3
       versions, including Windows NT Netscape, Win95 Netscape, and the
       Solaris series systems.  VRML is becoming such an attraction that
       they are now marketing the add-on for your Browser, trying to make
       money off this new technology is attractive to the corporate
       generals who control the scene right now.  Since VRML is
       commercial, there is obviously a pirated version of the Browser
       add-on on the net.  Look for it if you haven't installed it
       already.  Since you can navigate the scenery "virtually", you can
       also hide doors and such to various FTP sites.  This is a major
       concern for companies doing their best to control piracy, but who
       cares.  They are there to supply us with the software we trade.

          There are new VRML sites popping up every day, although the
       biggest one: HTTP://WWW.VRML.COM has gone down for some reason.  It
       should be back up soon so that you can find the other VRML sites.
       VRML rendering comes over the net, and is based on openGL for
       Windows NT and Sun systems, and WinG for Win95.  Since this is the
       case, rendering of the graphics is very quick compared to
       conventional C++ engines (the winG and openGL are integrated within
       the operating system) and HTML engines that would be used to make
       the real time imaging required for VRML.  But, as with all
       rendering of full page graphics, this system is very processor
       intensive and can cause your computer to slow down tremendously.
       The openGL system is much more effective and is about 500% faster
       than the winG system used by Win95, but Microsoft will not
       implement openGL into Win95 at all, even in the Win95 updates.
       Rendering done on a Sparc system running Solaris is almost
       instantaneous, considering it is using Sun's openGL system and the
       Sparc is also a RISC chip.  These new technologies are great
       add-ons for your internet Web Browser.  Check them out.  If you
       need more information on these new technologies, then check out the
       URL's listed above.  If you are looking for the VRML add-on,
       contact _Warlock_ on IRC or look for it around so that you can
       install it and add it to your Netscape.

          When I first thought of interviewing Orion, founder and
       president of Pirates With Attitudes, I thought, great, I get to
       learn some stuff from one of the scenes most respected individuals.
       As the interview with Orion went underway, I got the impression -
       and so do others who know Orion very well - that he is a careful,
       sensitive, and a very intelligent man who knows what he is talking
       about when you speak to him about the scene. The interview went a
       little something like this :

          WWN : Tell the reader a little background info of how Pirates
       With Attitudes got started (by/whom/why/etc).

          ThePrez : "PWA started 3 years ago, With BarManager and myself.
       We were running INC at the time... We both and the majority of the
       group agreed that the games scene was heading into a tailspin of
       kids ruining it with thier ego's. Wanting to be number one can do
       alot to a person. Makes them forget the reason they started this..
       And that is #1 to have FUN #2 to get the releases to use..We took a
       vote of the group, and all the dist sites sysop and all agreed 100%
       to go with the new look and new name... There were only 2 that
       didn't go because we felt they were to wrapped into the ego trips..
       That was American Gladiator and GateKeeper ... Since then PWA has
       found itself the resting place of alot of old Pirates like Rambone,
       Hannibal Lecktor, Rifleman.. In the three years we have absorbed
       many little groups, and a few large ones also. Like Scotch for
       instance."

          WWN : Can you tell us why PWA isnt such strong competetion
       amongst the BBS scene? And It's lack of power in the scene overall
       nowadays?

          ThePrez : "Well, PWA like every other group got caught in the
       Inet Whirlwind. It was this "new" thing and got caught up in it..
       As many other groups did. We are heading back to the Basics now as
       we speak. If you look at the nfo of the new releases we are
       throwing out, we are incorporating new BBS boards back into it...
       But like I stated earlier we just got caught into Inet world...",he
       continued "Lack of Power? Well really we didn't lose any power.
       Power isn't resolved because of the amount of release that one
       group does. Its the over all of the scene, we still have all our
       contacts and still have the major people in the scene connected
       with us... So we really didn't lose Power as you use that term.."

          WWN : What do you plan/expect of PWA in the upcoming
       months/years? ThePrez : "Well after Blackhawk got busted, I decided
       for PWA to take a `reality' break, that lasted for 6 months. We are
       getting back into full swing now..  Blackie is coming back... We
       are just going to have fun and fuck everyone else.. And when we do
       it we are just going to it with a TUDE..."

          WWN : Can you give us just a little recap of what happend with
       the busting of BlackHawk/TAG? ThePrez : "Sure, He got busted for MS
       and Novell shit on his board... Kinda funny how it happened but
       that is another article you can ask him about... But in the short
       of it, he got all his equipment seized and phone records taken.. MS
       is looking for the neighborhood of 150K of reconcilation for
       `thier' troubles... He is and will be fine thru all this...PWA will
       survive and continue..."

          WWN : Ok, Do you have any comments on regard to MikeySoft's
       Article about the "State of The Scene" in last week's WWN?

          ThePrez : "You can print my comment, and I hope you
       do...Mikeysoft and I have been working for months on the concept of
       bring the scene to a all time high. And that is to form UNITY a
       group just one group in the scene...I believe in what MikeySoft had
       to say 100%. Vendors and Software companies i.e.  Micorsoft, IBM
       finanally found out that actually need us. We beta thier software
       better then they "on payroll" beta testers..."

          And with that last question, ended my short, half hour [Thats
       all the busy guy could spare :)] interview with Orion, the
       president and founder of Pirates With Attitudes Ended....Who knows
       the future of PWA and it's BBS's , Members, and even Presidents?
       Time will tell.....

          This week's rumor section brings us to the well known couriering
       group, `The Cartel'.  Thanks to unrevealed sources, we here at WWN
       have found out that there is quite alot of tension going on
       inbetween The U.S.A Division and The Euro Section of The Cartel.
       My sources say that The Cartel just might split and re-group
       because of these tensions...  Could it happen? Possibly. Is The
       Cartel really having inner conflicts? Possibly. Can My Source be
       full of shit? Possibly......

          The DoD/RTS Site Poo's House will be down starting Monday, August
       14th for many different reasons. I need to move into my new dorm,
       upgrade to a new CPU, and go to Las Vegas to see the Tyson fight.
       It will be back up FOR SURE on Sept. 1st at the latest, possibly
       August 25th at the earliest. Please do not flip out and cause a
       brain hemorrage. The site will be back up soon with a P-90, 32 Megs
       RAM, 3 Gigs, and the same old *phat* T3 connection.

          So dont be dismayed if you can't connect... It will be back if
       effect soon, and BETTER THAN EVER!

          If you have questions, comments, or just want to gripe about it
       being down, /msg [Mercury] on iRC. I'll let him deal with that shit ;).

                                   Till then,

---=[ 7. Group News - "Windows 95 Final Release by DoD" ]=--------------------------------
                                                          
          Ok, here are the reasons why this new dod release is not a dupe
       of any previous version of Windows 95.  For one, This has files, if
       you check the dates past august, which no other version has had.
       Another thing different about this release is that this version is
       not an upgrade. This may cause some confusion as to what I mean.
       Previous versions you have needed to install from windows and have
       a version of Windows installed (obviously) such as Windows 3.11.
       This particular version needs nothing except DOS.

          Another thing that is different about this is the fact that this
       contains some extras.  This contains some extra files, which we did
       not see in SCuM's beta r6, and NTa's Gold (if they are different,
       which is another arcticle altogether :) ).

          Another thing that may raise some questions is that, when you
       are in MS-DOS-SHELL, and you type 'ver', you will see Windows 95.
       [Version 4.00.950] This does not mean Beta 950, this, in fact
       (coming directly from my supplier's mouth at MS) means that this is
       version 4.0 -ergo- Windows '95.

          And finally, if you have installed this version, you will note
       that there is a passwd and login option in this version, which no
       other version has had.
