Postal Bill Chronicles
Welcome to Postal Bill’s Grey Market Soft-Ware. Before you start your life of Matrix Crime, here are some things you need to know:
Grey Ware: We are soundly in between the black and white markets of software. The good stuff is that you don’t need to SIN, you don’t have to worry about viruses, and if you follow my guidelines, it will even update, and serve you for years, instead of months.
The down side is that it costs a LOT more than a pirated version. That is because the software is maintained, and actual hackers are maintaining their masterpieces. But this takes time, which costs somebody money. In this case, you. Also, all ware is Copyright Protected and Registered. What that means: Copy Right: If you crack it, I will personally crack you. † Registration: If you are messy, and leave a trail, I will know, but they will not.
There is a 10¥ charge for registering software, if you do not have an account.
All ¥ is seriously inspected, so make sure it is good yen in good accounts, or you will be burned. We use the Web of Distrust to verify you and your money.
† I know I generally encourage trying to hack my site, rewarding any hacker who stops you with store credit, and you with twice the credit if you succeed, but don’t fuck with the software.
R refers to the Rating of the program according to the Guidlines of Program Measure outlined by the Corporate Court in articles blah blah blah blah. (Look them up if you need to know what the terminology means, Chummer.)
All prices are given in Nuyen, cause I don’t take corporate script.
