Hi, everyone - back from the dead (or as near as may be...)

Alas, my (never that hot) skills are rusty, but be sure I'll be there to try... I can't get less than one point, right?

Good to see how Uplink's prospered while I was AFK, and special thanks to Icepick for this very cool idea.

Later, folks

I'll have one of those, one of those, and Ooohh!! Two of those!!

there is going to be a new challenge depending on how long you take to finish the previous one, and how much time I have. It took me about 16 hours to write/troubleshoot/perfect the first LAN and get the user set up correctly. There is no way you can have daily LANs, because they would be rushed and probably buggy and not very good. Me and _Icepick_ said probably once or twice a week, depending on how long it takes to get people to beat the LAN.

Its also dependant on the interest it gets. If i dont get enough people entering, it might not go on for long at all, or might be just once per week.

Hey, Icepick, can I get some clarification? Are we allowed to haul down multiple copies of the download and try the run a couple of times, or is it a one hit, cold entry, and best hacker wins kind of a thing?

Thanks,
Overwatch

Overwatch: i think your only safe bet is to try it several times, seeing as you can lock yourself out of the lan and hence be stuck :P No it isn't cheating to try again, just it will slow you down the more times you take.
