"We are creating a world where anyone, anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity."

    --- Quote from John Perry Barlow in A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace on February 8, 1996.

"Long live the underground!  When the underground is gone, when the people's will to resist overbearing government and kneejerk morality is gone...  Then, shall I be able to declare America dead."

    --- Quote from Jello Biafra, a frequent HOPE keynote speaker.

"If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."

    --- Quote from George Orwell (Eric A. Blair [1903-1950])

"Anyone who stands up for what he believes in is an inspiration.  That's the spirit of a hacker, and it's the spirit of an individual."

    --- Quote from Evil Corley during an Off The Hook broadcast.  (I don't remember which one.)

"It's a question of freedom of speech, something that has stood up for the last couple hundred years, and I think the Internet should definitely continue the tradition."

    --- Quote from Evil Corley on Off The Hook, June 18, 1996.

"... Freedom of speech, on the other hand, is something that is universally sought after and recognized as valuable."

    --- Quote from a reply to a letter by William R. Epp in Vol. 18, No. 3.

"As you probably know it you've read our pages before, we have some major issues with entities who abuse power and intimidate individuals..."

    --- Quote from a reply to a letter by "anonymous" in Vol. 20, No. 2.

"Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth."

    --- Quote (paraphrased) from Albert Einstein used in Vol. 23, No. 1.

"The first condition of progress is the removal of censorship."

    --- Quote from George Bernard Shaw used in Vol. 33, No. 1.

"Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed.  Everything else is public relations."

    --- Quote from George Orwell used in Vol. 32, No. 1.

"9.) I will aid the voiceless in obtaining a voice and help them evade censorship so they too can enjoy the fundamental human rights of free speech."

    --- Quote from Ghost Exodus (Jesse McGraw) in his article "No Country for Incarcerated Hackers" in Vol. 35, No. 3

"Recognizing the content of the wikileaks.org website is the subject of concern to a variety of individuals and nations, we nevertheless believe it must be subject to the same laws and policies of availability as all Internet sites.  Free expression should not be restricted by governmental or private controls over computer hardware or software, telecommunications infrastructure, or other essential components of the Internet."

    --- Quote by The Internet Society from the article entitled "The Internet Society on the Wikileaks issue" in their membership newsletter.

"We have learned a great deal in watching the reactions of our various leaders.  We see how the surveillance of so many aspects of our lives is supported by politicians of both parties and how deep the cover-up goes.  We also see how they have no problem changing the rules behind our backs to make these inexcusable actions 'legal.'  Shining the light on their subterfuge is about the most patriotic act we can think of."

    --- Quote from the editorial in Vol. 30, No. 3.

"By means of ever more effective methods of mind-manipulation, the democracies will change their nature; the quaint old forms -- elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest -- will remain.  The underlying substance will be a new kind of non-violent totalitarianism.  All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days.  Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial.  ...  Meanwhile the ruling (((oligarchy))) and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit."

"At press time, Parler was no longer in service.  We're not mourning its loss and don't believe it ever offered anything of value.  We would certainly like to see alternative social media sites that aren't batshit crazy, as having everyone using only a couple of different sites is far from ideal."

    --- Quote from a reply to a letter by "Jason" in Vol. 37, No. 4.  Ironic, as $2600 is one of the most "batshit crazy" publications out there...

"Someone in this group reported me and got my account blocked for 24 hours over something that wasn't even that serious.  I'm unhappy about that and I've never ever had someone do something so petty."

"I keep getting muted from the 2600 group without explanation.  What am I doing wrong here?"

"Unfortunately, I've been blocked for seven days from posting for no apparent reason.  I would like to read the guidelines as suggested, but when I go to read them, it says the post has been removed or deleted.  Can someone please send me the guidelines and, if possible, tell me which I violated?  I thought I posted a supportive humorous meme, but I'd like to follow the rules."

"We believe in science.  We support removing fascists from platforms.  We want monopolies broke up.  And we demand accountability.  Saying these things really pissed a lot of people off.  So we're saying them again in case we missed anyone."

    --- Quote from a $2600 Twitter post in May 27, 2021.  $2600 Magazine openly attacks the scientific method, believes that MEN can become pregnant or turn into women if they chop off their pee-pee, thinks Chelsea Manning is an actual female, openly supported (and voted for!) the fascist (((Obama and Biden regimes))), profits from complaints about the government's mess of the breakup of the Bell System or has never once mentioned the monopolistic & private "Federal Reserve" as they slowly increase the price of their magazine to $9 and the banks demand more "bailouts," doesn't want anyone to show an ID to vote, but they do use IDs (and encryption) on their own computer networks.  And worst of all, has done NOTHING to expose the "accountability" of the FBI & Hillary Clinton's "Russian collusion hoax" or the FBI & Twitter's suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop and China COVID-19 origin stories, or all the other various Biden-family bribery schemes - all in order to affect the outcomes of the 2016, 2020, & 2024 presidential elections.

"... Nowadays, Off The Hook is filled with sycophants who dare not disagree with political views, no matter how misguided, or he will scream at them.  Literally.  The only personality brave enough to even attempt to disagree and reason with him at times is Alex (whom I applaud), but even his attempts are half-hearted and shouted down."

    --- Quote from a letter by "J.X." in Vol. 38., No. 3 discussing their views on what Off The Hook and $2600 have turned into.

"... Anthony Fauci is a good scientist.  Serious electoral tampering did not occur on the Democratic side (investigations into Trumpian tampering are ongoing on federal and state levels).  I don't say these things because I download my opinions from the mainstream media.  I say these things because of a compelling pattern of evidence from reputable sources..."

    --- Quote from a letter by "James" in Vol. 38, No. 2.  $2600's reply was: "Thank you for making these points better than we ever could."  All those statements "James" made are demonstrability false.  Dr. Fauci has been caught red-handed lying to Congress, the media, and the American people and actively covered-up his involvement in the creation of the China COVID-19 pandemic.

(Massive 2020 Voter Fraud Uncovered in Michigan  Including estimated "800,000 ballot applications sent to non-qualified voters" - bags of pre-paid gift cards, guns with silencers, burner phones, and a Democrat-funded organization with multiple temporary facilities in several states.)

"Comparing demonstrators and even common rioters to a President-led storming of the nation's Capitol building is a poor attempt to minimize the significance of the latter.  Blaming groups like Black Lives Matter for everything you dislike only shows how easily you can be convinced that people who are different from you are nothing short of pure evil."

    --- Quote from a reply to a letter by "pinkbathtowel" in Vol. 38, No. 1.  $2600 is trying to compare the deadly (((Black Lives Matter))) chimp-outs which caused billions of dollars in damage and killed at least 19 innocent people to the Constitutionally-protected Jan. 6 election integrity (unarmed!) protests where the only death was the result of an unqualified, affirmative action negro Capitol police officer killing an unarmed woman (and veteran) for no reason (and the assault and resultant death of motionless woman [Roseanne Boyland] on ground.)  Also, Mr. Trump had nothing to do with the "riot," as proven over-and-over again...

Also note that at HOPE X, $2600 praised the jewish supremacist and war monger (((Emma Goldman ✡))) for being a "dissenter."  Really.  Emma Goldman is best known for helping plan the assassination of U.S. President McKinley (!) which set the stages for pushing the U.S. and Europe into (((World War 1 & 2))) resulting in the deaths of millions of innocent Gentiles, and the creation of (((private ✡))) central banking in the U.S.  I'm pretty sure that is a textbook definition of "pure evil," and just a tad bit worse than a bunch of people walking around the Capitol building with a police escort...

Also, I bet January 6, 2021 was the first time those traitorous assholes working in the U.S. government realized their boss was John Q. American and not Shlomo Shekelstein on Wall St.  BTW, George Floyd died from a fentanyl overdose...

"And again, this fallacy that we're in favor of some sort of approved speech doctrine is a load of horseshit.  We will stamp out hate speech wherever we see it.  We will continue to shut down overt racism in every forum.  And we will not tolerate anti-democratic attempts to subvert legal elections and overthrow legitimate leaders or deny people the right to vote."

    --- Quote from a reply to a letter by "6NdLXzc2" in Vol. 38, No. 1.  $2600 REFUSES to stamp out hate speech on (((CNN ✡))) or (((MSNBC ✡))).  They also refuse to shut down overt racism by Steve Rombom ✡, Kevin Mitnick ✡, Chuck Schumer ✡, AOC ✡, etc., or even shutdown $2600 meetings in apartheid Israel.  They also refuse to condemn the phoney racially-motivated President Trump (((impeachment ✡))) hearings.  And don't expect them to stand-up to the anti-democratic attempts to subvert our elections by the Democrat Party, Hillary Clinton, Twitter, Facebook, FBI, and WEF!

"A number of our own readers in this issue's letters section expressed their outrage at our opinions on the matter in 37:4, which encouraged responsible providers on the Internet to stop hosting forums for movements that refused to acknowledge scientific facts or that advocated such actions as overturning democratic elections and installing unelected leaders (Mirror).  While we continue to believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, we don't subscribe to the belief that all opinions deserve the same platforms.  We believe providers have the right to determine what they consider to be acceptable and what they don't, even when we disagree - and everyone has the right to pressure them to do the right thing."

    --- Quote from the editorial in Vol. 38, No. 1  Many of those censored "unscientific facts" have since turned out to be true...  Jan. 6 was a nothing-burger exploited by (((Democrats))) to seize power, China COVID-19 may have been man-made in a Chinese lab partially funded by the U.S. government and U.S. corporations, the number of deaths was grossly overinflated to get government hand-outs, the lock downs caused more problems than they solved, especially for young children, low-cost alternative vaccines were actively suppressed by (((Big Pharma))) in collusion with (((Big Tech))), and those cheap masks did very little.  $2600 also wants illegal aliens to vote in U.S. elections, thereby "overturning" the will of legitimate U.S. voters.  That editorial also contains the quote: "There is nothing at all political about a pandemic."  LOL!

"While everybody has the right to free speech, that doesn't mean they can say or do whatever they want on a system run by others.  It's only if someone is forbidden from speaking by the authorities in any setting that we can start talking about true violations of free speech.
While we agree that we'd be better off with a whole lot of smaller companies and less mega-giants, we still need to ensure that falsehoods, anti-science sentiment, and hate speech doesn't become empowered and allowed to dominate as it has been."

    --- Quote from the editorial in Vol. 37, No. 4.  The FBI, CIA, DHS, White House, and DNC forcing Twitter and Facebook to censor certain conservative users in order to effect the outcome of the 2016 and 2020 elections is a "true violation of free speech" according to $2600.  Just don't expect them - or people like (((Cindy Cohn ✡))) at the EFF - to do anything about it...  Also, there is really no such thing as (((hate speech)))."  "Hate speech" is anything which effects Evil Corley's power grabs.  "Truth sounds like hate to those that hate truth."

"And when the site tried to find hosting in other countries, one by one they were cut off due to the outrage and bad publicity.  Is it right to cut off speech of any kind in this manner?  We believe it is when the decision is being made independently of any government regulation.  In other words, these people still have the right to free speech and they can say whatever they want.  But such reprehensible speech will generate a reaction and nobody should be forced to help them along.  Are there hypocrisies and double standards that can be found when making these decisions?  Undoubtedly so.  That doesn't take away from the guts required to stand up and say 'enough.'  We don't have to simply stand around and continue to watch the ugliness.  Resisting isn't always a neat process."

    --- Quote from the editorial in Vol. 34, No. 3.  $2600 was calling for MORE censorship of so-called "neo-Nazi" websites after the Charlottesville incident.  Video of the event shows that landwhale leftist, Heather Heyer, was NEVER hit by Fields' car and the coroner's report stated she died of a heart attack due to being obese.  We now know fascist Dwayne Dixon pointed his gun at James Fields and Fields fled in his vehicle, rightfully fearing for his life.  This event was then exploited by Evil Corley and the One Percent to shut down anyone (and any website) who exposed those in power...  You know, what hackers used to do...  Do you think Corley will ever apologize for spreading these lies?  BTW, DailyStormer had their .com domain STOLEN by (((Google))).  They illegally took away access to a domain they didn't own.

"Winston sank his arms to his sides and slowly refilled his lungs with air.  His mind slid away into the labyrinthine world of doublethink.  To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of (((democracy))), to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again: and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself.

That was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed.  Even to understand the word 'doublethink' involved the use of doublethink."

PepeEvil Corley and the One Percent are an existential threat to our democracy and must be stopped AT ANY cost.

They are currently engaging in the greatest assault on our freedoms which we have ever seen.  

What we're seeing with $2600 today is far more nefarious, as well-organized (((groups))) seek to influence massive amounts of people with fear, hatred, false information, and an unhealthy sense of paranoia.  They encourage violence and want a far less democrat system in place, one where they reap the benefits and those who aren't like them are kept from having any power, to put it mildly.

To say the Biden/Corley cult, err... administration is unlike anything we've experienced before would be a massive understatement.  We speak for many when we say that we were expecting a degree of crackdowns, closures, regressions, anger, fear, and the like, but what we've gotten so far leaves us almost speechless.


It's well accepted that Joseph "China/Ukraine/Israel First, America Last" Biden is incompetent, racist, sexist, and an overall jerk, among many other things.  This comes from people who have been in his inner-circle, fellow members of his party, foreign dignitaries, business partners, employees, and a whole lot more.  This is before even introducing political opponents, the media, and the majority of Americans who voted against him - for forty years.  $2600 refuses to outline all of the damage he has caused in his nightmare of a term.  For that, we suggest the media and the commentaries that Evil Corley refuses to pay attention to.

We cannot think of a more traumatic time for so many people to have lived through at once.  There have been many difficulties in the past with various travesties of justice in our own world.  We've seen wars and invasions carried out in our name, and we've witnessed the nation transformed by September 11th.  But apparently, all of that was the equivalent of training wheel for what we've been experiencing of late.

It's worth noting that $2600 has been especially friendly towards those in charge.  They openly supported, voted for, and campaigned for Clinton, Obama, and those (((politicians ✡))) in New York who supported Bush's war(s) for Israel.  But what we've experienced with Biden's reign has something quite unique and especially dangerous.  To try and normalize that period by equating it with the others would be a tremendous disservice to anyone who truly cares about freedom and the great potential this country holds.

However, all of this default antagonism that we're always prepared for in any administration doesn't begin to cover what seems to be ahead on the Biden/Corley cult-like agenda.  In an incredibly brief time, we've seen the non-mainstream press defined as the enemy of the people, the demonization of documented immigrants with a nationalistic zeal that should worry anyone who's ever picked up a history book (except for Ukraine ✡ - the money laundering and child trafficking capitol for Democrats - they'll start World War 3 to protect Ukraine's and Israel's borders...), statements that unfairly castigate entire religions and nations, racial insensitivity, embracing of conspiracy theories, lack of meaningful dialogue, favoritism of an epic proportion resulting in unelected individuals being catapulted into positions of great power, huge and damaging conflicts of interest that are willfully ignored, unprecedented incompetence in vital posts, lack of knowledge or interest in history and world affairs, threats of military action within our own borders, a wanton disregard for the fragile environment of our planet, extreme insecurity and hostility when confronted with criticism, accusations with no supporting evidence... we could keep going, but odds are you're already aware of most of this.  And all of these are ingredients vital to the rise of fascism, something we've never really experienced in our country.  Sure, we have problems that need to be dealt with, as does any country.  How such issues are handled is what defines a society and we are far from alone in being exceedingly troubled with what has happened so far.

Perhaps the core of what's most disturbing here is an attitude that somehow Biden/Corley and their cult-like ilk believe they don't have to abide by the same rules as everyone else:

"I have not taken a penny from any foreign source at any point in my life... Nothing was unethical... My son has no made money from China...  Clap for that, you stupid bastards."

We've seen this assumption of privilege rear its ugly head before in Biden's previous life.  It's up to all of us to make sure we remind him and his supporters at every opportunity that this is not how it works.  Because once it is, any hope for a functioning free society is lost.

We all know it's possible "legally" to come up with all kinds of words to allow great injusices to be gotten away with.  But morally... that's another story.  That is where we must apply our efforts without any hesitation.

This brings us to the infamous tax returns dealing with shady business connections to Ukraine and China, the ones that Joe & Hunter Biden believes nobody cares about, the ones that he can continue to hide from the American public.  It's no secret that the majority of people do care and, while legally he can hide them from us while lying about the reasons, morally it's indefensible.  How can anyone assert that we don't have the right to know what is being claimed on this form while we're entrusting him with such great power and responsibility?  Mistruths and cheating will quickly be revealed if they are there.  So too will the absence of these things, a revelation that will help the healing process begin and instill some much needed trust.

"Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together.  It's realty [sic] an honor and pleasure."
      --- The main email obtained by the New York Post is an April 2015 message that the newspaper said was sent to Joseph Bidens's son, Hunter Biden, by Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to Burisma's board.

"'I looked at them and said: I'm leaving in six hours.  If the prosecutor is not fired, you're not getting the money,' Biden infamously bragged to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018.  'Well, son of a bitch.  He got fired.'"
      --- Then-vice president Biden admittedly pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk into getting rid of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin investigating Burisma (and Hunter!) by threatening to withhold a $1 billion U.S. loan guarantee during a December 2015 trip to Kiev.

"I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made was not fulfilled.  Tell the director I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight.  And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction.  I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father."
      --- Hunter Biden text message to Chinese Communist Party-linked business man Henry Zhao.

While Donald Trump's tax returns showed he actually LOST money.  Joe Biden, a man who has never held a real job in 50 years and who Evil Corley VOTED FOR, is somehow a millionaire...

While members of the public can claim the right of privacy in not sharing their IRC logs when chatting with any male under the age of 18, it's pretty much an unwritten rule in our society that Evil Corley should display his honesty in this public manner.  Yes, it's unwritten, meaning Corely doesn't have to do it.  But the consequences of rejecting this tradition, as with many other voluntary actions that are expected of a hacker magazine editor, could have a very detrimental effect on our society... and the resulting ripples would be felt throughout the world.  Being in such a privileged position means sacrificing some of one's privacy - as has been done for decades - in the interests of open and transparent democracy.

Clearly, Corely has not been willing to do this.  And, equally troubling, his allies on $2600's "Staff" page are prepared to prevent this information from becoming public.  In July & August every two years, $2600's staff have unanimously blocked the efforts of other hackers to obtain Evil Corley's IRC logs.  Yes, they have the ability to obtain them and put this all to rest, but they chose to continue covering it up instead.

If I had $10,000, I'd offer it to anyone who could get us these elusive IRC logs from Corley.  Now that he's the "leader of the hacker world" with more scandals and cover-ups in the first 40 years of publishing than most hackers have had in their entire lives, this can no longer be thought of as remotely funny.  We all have the right to know just how Corley is running things.  Maybe we should reinstate our offer and make it potentially much bigger...  (That's a joke, if I had $10,000 I'd buy a new spectrum analyzer instead!  But where were these idiots when Obama was - and still is - refusing to show a valid birth certificate?)

There are basic values that we learned way back in the early days of IRC, surprisingly enough.  It was great to have a forum for everyone to communicate and share opinions.  But when people became disruptive or abusive, it was time to step up and say the right thing: Goodbye $2600.

We cannot be afraid to say this, whether it's on a chat network, in social media, at a conference, on network television, or in the halls of Congress.  Continually allowing for the amplification of vile rhetoric or outright lies intended to cause mayhem is a sign of weakness, not fairness.  It's time we all did more to stop what can rightfully be called a disease.

When having discussions, there have to be certain facts that are accepted by everyone or nothing ever gets accomplished.  Lately, we've been mired in an almost unbelievable environment where established facts no longer seem to matter.  This can't continue.

We all know people who have bought into this fiction.  Some have woken up, many haven't.  We shouldn't be surprised or overly judgmental.  This sort of thing has happened many times throughout history.  People make bad choices based on what they're told by others whom they trust.  It can be helped along with fear, anxiety, prejudices, and outright hatred.  To say each of us as individuals doesn't have the potential to be led down a similar dark path is as ignorant as the assumption that this sort of thing somehow could never have happened here.  It's part of the human condition, which is why we have to hold the door open for our fellow humans who believed in something that turned out not to be true.  And at the same time, we cannot allow those who perpetuate the lies to get another chance to do it even better.  Remember, they are still out there and, if encouraged, they will make more attempts to get their way.

Let's put aside the racism, sexism, ultra-nationalism (except for Ukraine ✡, a puppet-state controlled by U.S. oligarchs), and overall ignorance of domestic and world issues that Biden/Corley have become known for - and which, incredibly, seem to make them even more popular.  You can read specifics on all that almost anywhere else.  What we need to focus on here is what a Biden/Corley presidency would mean to the hacker world and to technology, the Internet, and free speech.  It's not pretty.

"Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community and they have six ways to Sunday to getting back at you."  --- Quote from (((Chuck Schumer))).

It's painfully clear that Biden/Corley don't understand how the Internet works.  But that won't stop them from dictating how they believe it should work and making the lives of anyone who gets in the way absolutely miserable.  The disdain with which those concerned about freedom of speech are referred to makes it abundantly clear that such people will not be looked upon kindly in a Biden/Corley administration.  And when such freedom is seen as a threat, it's the beginning of a significant downward spiral.  How do you suppose Biden/Corley would deal with an anonymity network like Tor?  Or the use of encryption?  Or hackers in general?

If Trump had been in power, Russian WOULD NOT have invaded Ukraine ✡, and the outcome could have been very different.  While he could only call for a boycott against them as a candidate, he could have taken actions to cripple (((those in power))) as president.  And it wouldn't have ended there.  The impact to technology companies, not to mention our very right to privacy would be severely impacted with (((Big Tech))) trying to censor information in order to manipulate our elections to keep Trump from winning.  It shouldn't come as a surprise that Trump is falsely attacked by phoney organizations like The Free Press Action Fund ✡, EFF ✡, ACLjU ✡, Facebook ✡, CNN ✡, and MSNBC ✡.

So there's that.  Now try and imagine what his attitude and shoot-from-the-hip mentality would actually do to the world of hackers.  Biden/Corley have publicly called for the execution of conservative White Americans, which ought to give you an idea of how anyone who embarrasses their regime would be treated.

We've all had these uncomfortable interactions with individuals who believe hackers are the equivalent of terrorists and, if these people had their way, all of the hackers would be locked up or worse.  We can laugh when it's a misguided relative at Thanksgiving because they're only speaking their minds and they really don't know any better.  But give someone with such massive gaps in knowledge the power to actually get their way and it quickly stops being funny.  Look at the history of fascism in the last century and you'll see that it always starts with someone in power echoing people's misguided perceptions that revolve around fear and misinformation.  Not only does the power make these thoughts turn into policy, but it also emboldens more misguided members of the public to become authorities, and ultimately monsters.  Before you know it, the mere suspicion of being different or of posing a potential problem is enough to have someone prosecuted, locked away, or simply kept from living a normal life.  There is no nation on Earth that is safe from this sort of threa.  Believing otherwise is the quickest way to learn that lesson.

We don't doubt that some will see this as an overreaction, to which we say it's a nice contrast to the underreaction we've been seeing over the past year.  Biden/Corley are not just two unqualified and dangerous people; they represents many more who have no qualms about putting policies of hatred and anger into practice.  We've seen it happen before and we'll see it happen again.  If there's one thing we've gained from the Biden/Corley campaign, it's the realization that we are not immune.  Sometimes change isn't funny at all.

How You Can Help

The easiest way you can help fight Evil Corley and the One Percent, their allies in the Deep State, and survive the Biden/Corley/BlackRock/FTX/SVB "economy," is by NOT paying for issues of $2600 Magazine.

While this is mostly symbolic (Corley is rich), it is still a start.

    --- Reply to a letter in $2600 Magazine Vol. 17, No. 3.

"It's amazing to us that people actually think they have to do this.  This constitutes personal use - you have every right to use excerpts of a publication in such a manner without asking permission."

    --- Reply to a letter in $2600 Magazine Vol. 19, No. 1 asking about copying articles.

"Several years ago it would have been almost unheard of for a corporation to bully someone into submission on the Net using nothing but its might.  Today we seem to hear of a new case every day."

    --- Editorial in $2600 Magazine Vol. 17, No. 2.


"Hmm...  I think I'll start a 'hacker' magazine with articles written by other people but I'll keep the profits to myself.  I'll refuse to take any personal responsibility and blame all my problems on someone else!  When sales are sagging, I'll ask Hollywood to make a movie about me and my teenage boy posse, then claim I'm being 'suppressed,' while actively supporting truly corrupt politicians and the One Percent.  LOL!  While bitching about the telephone company selling long distance service, I'll sell T-shirts, hats, DVDs, and stickers!  I'll spend 25% of each issue complaining about how dumb everyone else is, but I won't ever mention the word 'thanks' to those people who helped me to get where I am today!  Slap a six seven eight nine dollar price tag on it and sue anyone giving it away for free!  I'll never have to get a real job!"

  • Cover  (Cover Info)
  • Cover Inside  Payphones in Exotic Places
    • Guatemala  One of the typical phones found throughout the country.  Photo by Gary Davenport
    • Burkina Faso  This rather dusty phone was found in the city of Ouagadougou.  Note the symbol for international calling: one flag connecting to another.  Photo by M J
    • Rwanda  Seen in the departures area of the Kigali Airport.  (It didn't work, incidentally.)  Photo by Jeffrey Mann
    • Mauritius  This brightly colored model that takes both coins and cards was discovered beside the Pereybère Beach in Pereybère.  Photo by Scott Brown
  • Back Inside  Unusual Looking Payphones
    • France  The unusual thing about this phone found in the countryside is the fact that it takes neither coins nor cards.  In fact, this phone can only make emergency calls or calls using credit or calling cards.  In France, the law states that every city, town, or village must have at least one payphone.  Photo by Mike Miller
    • Japan  They don't really get much pinker than this model, found in a park in Ueno, Tokyo.  Photo by Jim E. Etheredge II
    • Thailand  Seen in a place called Chiang Mai, or perhaps it was just a hallucination.  Photo by professor ned
    • Russia  This was actually the grand opening of a payphone in Kamchatka Oblast.  We can't even imagine one of our phones being celebrated so festively.  These people must really appreciate telephony.  Photo by Curtis Vaughan
  • Back
    • Back Photo #1  Now here's a campaign we can all get behind.  This race took place in Illinois and we don't really know how it turned out.  But that's not the point, is it?  Thanks to Rich Tordia for letting us know about our increasing political presence.
    • Back Photo #2  Perhaps this is the true predecessor to 2600 meetings held on the third Tuesday after Easter.  Thanks to Mr. Skillz for letting us know how elite things once were back in the medieval days.

  • Cover  (Cover Info)
  • Cover Inside  Unusual Payphones
    • United States  In the U.S., you might say payphones are a dying breed.  Found in Franklin, North Carolina outside a gas station on the highway 23/74 bypass.  Photo by Sam T. Hoover
    • Kyrgyzstan  Quite the opposite holds true in Kyrgyzstan, found in Bishkek.  These models have existed for ages in the old Soviet Union.  This one has been converted to Touch-Tone from rotary dial and it's also been freshly painted.  It's not going anywhere.  Photo by romano.tamo
    • Japan  We never tire of these weird little payphones found all over Japan.  One has to wonder what's really going on in all that space under the hood.  It being pink and rotary is just an added bonus.  Found in the lobby of a hotel in rural Suzuka.  Photo by Darren Stone
    • United States  And we're back in the United States again where (did we mention?) payphones are a dying breed.  And in a variety of styles.  Found in Newport Beach, California.  Photo by Matt Figroid
  • Back Inside  Unusual Phone Booths
    • Turks and Caicos Islands  One of these phones is not like the other.  These booths were found outside the phone company building in Grand Turk  The phone company, incidentally, is known as Landline, Internet, Mobile, Entertainment (LIME).  Photo by Dieselpwner
    • New Zealand  This is about as grandiose as it gets.  This booth, found in Arrowtown, is closer to the size of an apartment than a phone booth.  Photo by Michael Hall
    • Lithuania  This one is just unusual on a variety of levels.  The colorful booth, the bright blue phone, the old street scene, even that strange word that means telephone.  This is, of course, in Lithuania, in the old town district of Vilnius.  Photo by Elvis
    • United States  In the U.S., payphones are going through a confusing period, as is evidenced by these ones found in West Caldwell, New Jersey.  Why they are Chinese-themed is anyone's guess.  They were seen outside a ShopRite in a neighborhood with no obvious Asian connection.  Photo by Conor Laverty
  • Back  The Back Cover Photos
    • Back Photo #1  Let's make this crystal clear.  We don't condone mindless graffiti that makes the world less attractive.  However, this is without a doubt one of the most beautiful applications of guerilla art that we've come across.  We're not sure what makes it so amazing but something in it speaks to us.  Thanks go to Nokier in Melbourne, Australia for spotting this (but not for creating it we presume).
    • Back Photo #2  We can only imagine the possibilities of having German hackers design and build your kitchen.  Until that day comes, we'll be happy just to see this 18-wheeler go speeding past us on the Autobahn someday.  Discovered by Hollowpoint in Hemel Hempstead in England.

    • Back Photo #1  We're not sure what part of the country this was seen in, but some hospital somewhere has #2600 as the extension to call when something like this happens.  We can only hope that people don't try and hop onto the #2600 IRC channel looking for help.  They may find themselves on the floor for a long time.  Thanks to Chris for sending this one in.
    • Back Photo #2  We knew it would only be a matter of time before somebody tracked down a Bissell 2600 carpet sweeper.  Apparently, they're rather highly regarded in the world of dust and dirt removal, and now the hacker community can also recognize its eliteness.  Discovered by Will (aka Master of Telxons) in a second hand shop.

    • Colombia  Seen in Barranquilla, handsets of these phones often get stolen by enterprising "carreteros" - guys with burro-drawn carts who trade in a variety of things.  They then use the mouthpiece as a microphone to announce themselves as they drive the streets looking for customers.  Photo by Colter McCorkindale
    • United States  What appears to be remnants of a Terminator movie can be found in the 4th Avenue/9th Street subway station in Brooklyn.  How payphones ever managed to survive in the bowels of the New York City transit system in the first place is beyond us.  Photo by Alex
    • Thailand  While it may be bright, cheery, and colorful, this payphone has one fatal flaw.  See if you can discover what it is.  Spotted at the Surat Thani ferry terminal.  Photo by TProphet
    • United States  This about says it all.  The ghost of this St. Louis payphone tells the typical story of nonstop abuse - dents from every conceivable angle, a damaged sign, a coating of rust, not to mention the missing phone.  Photo by Todd Smith
  • Back Inside  Reclaimed Payphones
    • Thailand  Lately there seems to be a growing phenomenon of nature stepping in and taking back payphones.  We see the forest moving in on this one, found outside the Renaissance Hotel on Ko Samui island.  Photo by Mike S
    • Greece  Here it looks like the Earth itself is about to swallow this poor phone.  If it weren't for the tree, it would certainly be horizontal.  Yet it still works.  Seen on the island of Crete in the village of Almyrida.  Photo by Chaz
    • United States  The forest was very aggressive at the Hoh Rainforest in Washington State, where this structure looks like a part of nature itself.  The actual phone apparently blended in so well that it can't even be seen anymore.  Photo by Connor Dunning
    • Austria  Winter has taken this payphone (we assume there's one in there) at the Lackenhof ski resort in Ötscher.  The sign translates to "This telephone can save lives.  Don't destroy it!"  There are very few of these phones (and signs) left.  Photo by Richard Hanisch

    • Back Photo #1  Here's an interesting fact, discovered by sail0r: If you buy a copy of 2600 (or anything else, we presume) at this local Micro Center and pay cash, your name shows up on the receipt as "B Hacker."  (When making a purchase with a credit card, the cardholder name shows up.)  Perhaps the thought is that only a hacker would be smart enough to use cash - or maybe something somehow got hacked and this is the signature.  Regardless, we suspect a lot of people will be buying 2600 with cash at Micro Centers just to see what happens.
    • Back Photo #2  While out cycling, Rob Purvis found this neat little sign in the village of Newton Poppleford in East Devon, England.  It's clearly an informational statement which says that hackers are always in the vicinity.  Depending on one's outlook, this will either prove comforting or troubling.

    • Russia  Found at the Tagansky Protected Command Point in Moscow.  It's technically not a payphone and the site is technically no longer a secret military complex, but a harmless museum.  The weird-sized phone still scares us, though.  Photo by Ashes
    • Azerbaijan  Located in the Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Baku, this phone and its instruction plate have an awful lot of white space surrounding them, making them stand out even more than the presence of a payphone normally would.  Photo by J.P.
    • China  It seems like this booth was constructed for a somewhat larger model of phone than the current resident, found in the ancient canal-networked town of Tongli.  Photo by Joy Lockhart
    • Malawi  Found on the grounds of Ekwendeni Hospital in Ekwendeni, this fairly modern phone also doesn't seem to match its home.  Photo by Kevin

    • France  Spotted at the Cannes International Film Festival earlier this year.  Note the "film" that the phone is mounted on.  Photo by T-RAY
    • South Korea  Seen in the Gimpo Internartional Airport in Seoul, these are two rather old models, taking all combinations of coins and cards between them.  Photo by bitcoin vendor
    • United States  Nobody is too surprised at a sight like this in Buffalo, New York.  And we wouldn't be at all surprised if these phones were still operational.  Photo by Vince Harzewski
    • Bahamas  Believe it or not, this phone in Mangrove Cay on Andros Island actually works.  But you'd have to have an unusually shaped head to take advantage of it.  Photo by Robin Blanc

    • Back Photo #1  Occasionally, moments like this just happen and lately we've been getting more and more of them.  In this case, Gene (laserdemon) noticed his four-year-old daughter parading around the house with one of our issues while counting out loud.  This verifies a longstanding theory of ours that we do in fact sometimes act as an educational tool.  What's really amazing here is the number of kids in a single photo of our magazine.
    • Back Photo #2  And on the other end of the spectrum, we see the symbolic death of a hacker - and the unsymbolic death of someone with the actual last name of "Hacker" as seen by L. Motz, who witnessed this at Westview Mausoleum in Atlanta, Georgia.  This kind of thing also happens now and then.

    • France  A rather unfortunate reality captured here in Paris, as a bunch of phones, complete with the booths they were housed in, are taken away to be... retired.  Photo by Nicolas RUFF
    • United States  And this is how it turns out for many of these unfortunate phones, destined to rot in a scrap heap with piles of junk, as seen in Culver City, California.  Photo by jeff oconnell
    • Nicaragua  In other parts of the world, however, abandoned phones are left to die in peace.  This way, they're always there as a reminder and a curiosity for future generations.  This one was found in El Bluff.  Photo by Aaron Cotton
    • Germany  And then there are those places that turn tragedy into something positive, such as here in Lübeck.  It seems there was a fire at a local pizza place in the 1970s and they decided to keep the phone in its "altered state" after reopening.  Photo by Craig Damlo

    • Croatia  This phone is completely operational, and it can be found on the ferry from the city of Split to the island of Vis.  The phone carries the initials of a now defunct company (Hrvatska Pošta i Telekomunikacije), which hasn't existed since the 1990s.  Photo by Bojan Paduh
    • Australia  A truly remote phone, found in a place called Winning Pool on the North West Coastal Highway around 150 miles from any people.  The coin mechanism has been completely removed, ostensibly to save the phone company the 300 mile trip to empty it.  Photo by Astrant Photographic
    • Barbados  Seen in Bridgetown, this phone carries the familiar logo of parent company Cable & Wireless to the left of the BarTel name, a very familiar sight throughout the Caribbean.  Photo by Kristyn Rose
    • Uganda  Spotted in Mukono, this phone is operated by Mobile Telephone Networks, a company based in South Africa that has expanded its operations to over 20 countries in Africa and the Middle East.  Photo by TC Johnson

    • Back Photo #1  So momentumdave was going through some old papers concerning his adoption and discovered that he was worth exactly $2600 at the time.  How cool is that?  Incidentally, we can't help but wonder if the actual infant was the attachment referred to in "Average Cost per Infant (attached)."
    • Back Photo #2  Now this is something we find ourselves wanting more than anything - a true hacker radio, as discovered by sarx in Scotland.  Had this company only stayed in business another 30 years or so, this would have been the perfect gift for Off The Hook listeners.
