ShanePitman, i think you've been away from the scene for way too long and have forgotten what it was.

Not the brightest bulb in the bunch, are you?

I would dare say he's in a much better position than you to say what the scene is/was. And why would someone dredge up this old post, unless they didn't know how these forums worked?

(And BTW: He's started his own company, and busy enough now that he may end up needing help keeping up with demand).

Wow. I think he remembers exactly what the scene WAS. The scene today is ****. There's no reason to be involved unless you want to throw your life away.

And I have to thank you Shane, your posts were somewhat of a wake up call for me.

I don't think it has much to do with how long, or how many posts, just go check out the post he has made, and then form your opinion.

Just a year? Oh well, loads have gone that route (bust), such as famous DoD, some FLT? members, and many have also have quict VideoCD? More will go busts.

Piracy, kills Open Source as I am sure that more people would go to Linux/BSD if they could not afford the high prices of copyrighted material such as MS Office.

Anyways, you served your time and I hope that your past wont demonise your future.

I am sure Shane knows exactly what he is on about considering his past and knowledge

sure, some trader became a leader by knowing the right people, that sure takes 3l334 skillz.

By your logic, George Bush must be the most brilliant person in US since he is like the leader of US.

Not realy. I would not trust the word or a link given by someone who has ust joined and no one knows. Especially if their commen was simply to make fun o or to try and prove someone wrong.

Give me someone who has many posts, has been in the group for a long time and is well known by others, then i MIGHT listen to what they have to say.

It is silly, but even if people wont admit it, this is the way most people think.

hi shanepitman,

i just took about 1 hour to read all the 32 pages long thread :p and sign up this account in order to add my reply to you.

so much people suffer and in pain because the society nowadays is too greedy and selfish. i mean, just imagine the price of a windows xp retail license, the third world country people already have problem with their 3 times meals per day, where would their parent find more money to buy a legal software for their children? some of the people there never know what is a Pentium IV, they are using the old gray colored monitor with 386/486 pc with 32 or 64mb ram at school.

i mean, people need to correct the spirit of making software.

making software is to let others see your creation, share your intel, and help the world, not to earn money or exploit others from the software.

sharing is the way to have a more better world. (those gov & corporate hates this idea), they keep using money to control human and make human obedient to their desire. stupid is for human who can't differentiate what he needs compare to what he wants.

"Pang!!!", you heard a gun sound, you saw blood flowing out from your body. i mean, the next moment could be something like this. life is so real like this.

gov loves money so much that someday they would probably let corporate to patent "a to z" character. i mean, that is stupid. we need to redefine what is knowledge. the funny thing why fact could be patented? back to 1000 years before, the learned people distribute their knowledge free, they wish more people would know what they knew. they wish to share what they got. shame on nowadays learned human.

instead of cracking or ..., i wish shane you could come out and share your own nice software / games for human in the future.

shanepitman, i wonder how is your life now :) 2006 btw

i wish you all the best and good luck.

sincerely,

sleepsleep

I am kind of hoping that pitbull can get in touch with me. I was with Fastlane, among one of the first ones to have been busted. I can relate to almost everything you been through. I was looking for more information after I read about the recent bust, and found this. Interesting to know that people are still around after all the busts, we were busted in September 2000.

Pittbull, get in touch with me, or I guess I'll check this occasionally. Perhaps we can help each other by talking, it's hard to put this behind me still.

if you're wondering why mike got canned twice it's because there are two sovereign law bodies in the U.S.A. There is the federal court system and the state court system. Each system has it's own courts/laws. Sorry to hear about your troubles. Copyright law is interesting because justice o'connor has said that the intent of the law is not to ...

"The primary objective of copyright is not to reward the labor of authors, but to promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts. To this end, copyright assures authors the right to their original expression, but encourages others to build freely upon the ideas and information conveyed by a work. This result is neither unfair nor unfortunate. It is the means by which copyright advances the progress of science and art."

I can't believe that you saw people who work at prison trading dvd's. That's bogus. Nice to hear you are getting work. Check out dice.com for more good job offers. It's amazing that you've been in prison and are able to tell us what it's like.

What I've been hearing is that a lot of the IT outsourcing is coming back to the usa because of quality issues. I'm in a IT program now and they say to be optimistic about job opportunities because of problems with the coding that's been coming back from india and places like that. Before you know it it'll be summer.

eleea?

This is rambling on and on, and I could go in to a lot more detail, but I doubt anyone here wants to hear it

If your willing to share it I would be interested in listening.

Still cant believe your on here, I never used any of your stuff as I was still back on 56k, but I have read about you.

In short: Legend!
