What is the file that you can download from the website? The Uplink demo?

(Doesn't work on Mac, of course. That's why I'm asking)

Also, at http://www.introversion.co.uk/laughingman/guide.html it should be "Catcher In the Rye," not Catcher on the rye.

The Catcher on Rye is just JD Salinger’s favorite sandwich. ;)

You might want to scan this thread. Some believe that Chris himself is the "Laughing Man." I'm starting to suspect it myself, seeing how no posts were made in the General section in over a day. He may be a GITS fan, and the "demo" may be a teaser for an Uplink/GITS mod project. I have to find time to try it.

Yeah, is it me or did general just up and die last week? There has obviously been a long decline, but people just seem to have abruptly stopped posting all together. :(

Some highly ranks person says some very important is hacked.

Some time later the one who has hacked it responds with some lazy text.

If it wasn't on this forum, I would be thinking about uplink 8)

So Chris, what's the plan :shock:
