dear staff member,
                  I am extremely interested to find
out if any of your supreme hackers have ever got into
the echelon communications.
I 2 am a fellow geek,  do you know if this top secret
shit is still in operation.?
if you have no idea about this thats ok.
but you will soon.........

It sure is in operation and yes, we've been in it. Housed in Ft. Meade, Maryland, the echelon system is housed on 3 Crays, 2 VMS machines, 18 Solaris boxes in the first cluster, and 7 Amigas in the second cluster. They currently have 27 T3's leading in for bandwidth and operate 24/7. Lucky for us, since they worry so much about reading EVERYTHING they can, they are vulnerable to standard ROT13 attacks. We suggest you use that when communicating with friends and family.

uv zbz!
