Nah, I think she did, cause *maybe* it could be coincidence if the letters were just backwards, but you'll note that she said "if you look at them in a mirror" not "if you read them backwards".  All the letters are also symmetrical, meaning that they would all read perfectly in a mirror.  AND the whole sig was about mirrors.  And the phrase it made was the most connected-to-Uplink anyone could think of.  And this is an Uplink forum.
You still think it's a coincidence?
I think it's the whole monkeys-and-typewriters thing.

I suppose I'll make this my introductory post, even though it's not my first?

River- Came from Rivermonster. An old legend in my family.

And... I guess this is good a place as any for a short hello, like I said my name's River, I live in the US, and am a total computer nut. Not as high tech in the gear as some, but I'm always willing to learn, and do understand a good majority of the things that go on about the internet, so I'm far from a n00b. =p Been playing Uplink for a few weeks now, I think, and am loving every minute of it, totaly addicted.

Yes Maniak - you aren't the only one living in the US...
It's only a little country, so you'd expect there might be a hand-ful of others here who are posting from there..

Is that difficult to find on Uplink? lol, I suppose it may be with the mail-in factor.

okay so I'm not even gonna bother reading past the first page but my nick stands for -- get this
dark one, as in the dark one, a dark person, shady character, you get the picture, there was a history to it, it was just erased by too much drug use.

But surely you could have written it DarkOne to make it sound less lame?
