PRODUCTIONS          
PROUDLY PRESENTS :           
THE LEVYSHOEMAKER9         
INTRO-94                      
AS YOU ALL PROBABLY HAVE NOTICED,
JUPITER WAS SHORT TIME AGO HIT BY FRAGMENTS
 OF THE LEVY-SHOEMAKER-9 -COMET

 SINCE ALMOST ALL MEMBERS OF ORBITAL
 ARE QUITE INTERESTED IN POPULAR-SCIENCE
 WE THOUGTH IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO
 WRITE AN INFORMATION-INTRO TO ENLIGHTEN
 THE WORLD OF THIS HAPPENING.


                       BUT, BEFORE THE INFORMATION, SOME
 CREDITS, AND INFO ABOUT ORBITAL...           

 INTRO CODING,IDEA, DESIGN(?) BY:   NEUROMANCER     

 ADDITIONAL CODING BY:
  DIG-IT     AND     ORGIN

 MUSIC BY:
  NEUROMANCER            

 THE TUNE YOU ARE LISTENING TO IS THE 
 LONGEST PIECE OF DATA IN THIS INTRO, 
 WHICH EXPLAINS ITS LENGTH... 
             

 ALL SAMPLES WERE TAKEN FROM :   

              KAWAI K4   
            YAMAHA DX7II   
           ENSONIQ EPS16+   

 THE VOICE-SOUNDS WERE PROCESSED USING THE
 ENSONIQ EPS.                                        
 NOW, SOME INFO ABOUT THE COMETCRASH.
 MOST OF THIS INFORMATION IS TAKEN FROM
 A NEWS BULLETIN BY THE SWEDISH SPACE
 SOCIETY AND IS FREELY REWRITTEN BY ME
 (NEUROMANCER)        

 --------------------------------------
 A RESEARCH TEAM AT JPL HAS CREATED A
 COMPUTERMODEL OF THE CRASH, AND THE
 CALCULATIONS SUGGEST THAT AFTER
 COMET-FRAGMENTS BETWEEN 0.4-10Km
 PIERCE THE DENSE JUPITER-ATMOSPHERE
 IT WILL HEAT THE COMPRESSED HYDROGEN-
 CLOUDS TO TEMPERATURES ALMOST LIKE
 THE SURFACE OF THE SUN          

 THE PLUMES CREATED (LIKE H-BOMB-ONES)
 WILL BE (AND HAS BEEN) SEEN FROM EARTH.                      

 SCIENTISTS BELIEVE THAT THE CLOUDS
 FROM THE EXPLOSIONS WILL RAISE THE
 BRIGHTNES OF JUPITER BY A FACTOR TWO.                      
 THE FLASHES OF THE IMPACTS WILL ALSO
 PROVIDE THE SPECTRAL ANALYZERS SOME
 GOOD OPPORTUNITIES TO EXAMINE
 THE CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS OF JUPITERS
 ATMOSPHERE.                                                 
 THE FIRST FRAGMENTS OF THE COMET
 STRUCK JUPITER ON THE 16th OF JULY
 AND THE LAST ONE SMASHED IN ON THE
 22nd OF JULY...
                      


 --------------------------------------
 WELL THAT WAS SOME INFO FOR THE
 ASTRONOMY-INTERESTED PEOPLE OUT THERE.
 PICTURES SHOULD BE (I HAVENT CHECKED)
 AVAILABLE AT ALOT OF FTP-SITES I THINK.
 FINALLY, BEFORE THE BULLSHITTALK,
 RUMORS AND STUFF, I WOULD ONLY LIKE
 TO SAY THAT IT IS TRULY SAD, THAT AN
 EVENT LIKE THIS GETS LESS ATTENTION
 THAN A BLOODY W.C. IN FOOTBALL.....                          


 NOW FOR SOME INTERESTING BULLSHIT . . .                           
 SOME FACTS ABOUT ORBITAL:

 WE ARE NOT DEAD.        ITS A PITY WE
 HAVE TO MENTION THIS EVERYTIME WE
 RELEASE A PRODUCT (EVENTUALLY...)    
 ...BUT LAZY IS OUR GAME....      

           IT HAS ALSO REACHED OUR EARS, THAT THERE
 MIGHT BE ANOTHER -ORBITAL- GROUP AROUND
 IN SWEDEN...     AND WE ONLY HAVE ONE THING
 TO SAY TO THEM:      SORRY, BUT WE WERE FIRST!
 (EXCEPT FOR THE UK ORBITAL TECHNO-GROUP)                       

---------------------------------------
 SOME MEANINGLESS FACTS BOUT THIS INTRO:

 THE OBJECT WAS DRAWN BY DIG-IT, USING
 HIS PENCIL AND RULER..         
 (NOT THE WHITE PENCIL, BUT THE YELLOW
 LESS EXPENSIVE ONE...)               

 YOU SHOULD ALSO KNOW THAT IT WAS A 
 LIVING HELL TO FIND ALL THE BUGS IN THE
 FOUR-YEAR OLD VECTOR-SOURCES . . .               
 ... AND THE SAME GOES FOR THE FOUR
 HOUR OLD TEXT-ROUTINE. . . .                           
 WE ALSO HAVE A CHARITY-DIVISION 
 CALLED -REDDA JOPPE-, SO PLEASE HELP
 US BY SENDING US MONEY AND/OR BOOZE
 AND/NOT 4000/040:s AND/XOR YOUR 18-20
 YEAR OLD SISTERS...  ...  ...                       

 BEFORE ENTERING THE TIME WARP TO
 RESTART TEXT (IT WONT HURT), WE
 WONT GIVE YOU OUR MEMBERLIST
 SINCE.. EH.. PATRIK, VILKA 
 MEDLEMMAR HAR VI??????... EH,
 VI RINGER RUNT OCH KOLLAR IMORRN...                         
 IF YOU STILL WANT TO CONTACT US
 TRY CALLING DIG-IT:     
 0660-49279 OR SOMETHING...      
       -  NOT/AND/XOR -
 NEUROMANCER:
 0660-14390 OR SOMETHING...      

 ASK FOR -DATAKILLEN- IN BOTH CASES..

                    HEJSNA TILL PHANTOM, (GOOD GFX!!!!!)     
 AND HEJSNA TO .. EH SKITSAMMA...
