   1. FOR YOUR INFORMATION
   =======================

   Proxy is a computer happening that has been organized three times
   before. Even as the demo scene parties become rarer, we still want to 
   organize Proxy to give you such an event. By attending you can help 
   us to keep going. You may register right away.
