Well, that is VERY interesting! You hear something new every day... Well,
my answer is that warez is a stupid name made up by a bunch of 12 year olds
that trade software all day long(or whenever else they have a computer and
net access in front of them). I'm not going to get started with the rest of
the inevitable discussion...
But to get back to computers, I'm about to go grab about 10 old Wyse
terminals. Whhee!! I'm thinking of using it for packet radio, among other
things. I'll keep two of them, one is going to a ham friend, and the rest
will probably go to one of the local ham clubs. Amateur radio is NOT dead!
Just a little quiet... Another discussion I don't really want to start,
since it has been going on ever since ham radio began. See
rec.radio.amateur.policy if you want to get into that thread...
