You don't know anything about food. You need the mayo.

But for all intents and purposes, it's the internet. At least that's how IV described it. And if the Darwinians are the ultimate virus, where are they? Sure, Revelation was based off them, but what about the cosmonauts? What about the Apollo mission?

This is quite an interesting thread. Uplink 2 would be very welcome, but so would a new game by them.

maybe the darwinians were successfully eradicated, or maybe there is no connection between AWAN and the net; so while darwinians have spread all over the now defunct internet the AWAN is clean. I would imagine that once the darwinians were declared a virus DrS recalled them or helped eradicate them from the internet.

Has IV ever specifically said that the AWAN isn't the internet? I realize that it wouldn't be an accurate representation of the internet, but what WAN other than the internet itself would connect all these huge companies together? I think Uplink takes place on the internet.

So, presumably the prospective marketing campaign will be:

"Chris Delay's about to make you his bitch - Suck it down."

Nah - just a reference to a certain infamous advertising campaign in the past.

Ooh! I know! Is it GTA?

EDIT: Also, wwarnick, just in case you don't know it's spelled moi.

My siblings took five years of French, but the only language I ever took was one year of Spanish my freshman year in highschool. Naturally, by now, all I remember are a few random words, such as cojones, boligrafo, and lapiz.

Well, I was just making sure. You don't have to be snippy about it.
