    Welcome to the Phrack Inc. Philes.  Basically, we are a group of phile writers
    who have combined our philes and are distributing them in a group.  This
    newsletter-type project is home-based at Metal Shop.  If you or your group are
    interested in writing philes for Phrack Inc. you, your group, your BBS, or any
    other credits will be included.  These philes may include articles on telcom
    (phreaking/hacking), anarchy (guns and death & destruction) or kracking.  Other
    topics will be allowed also to an certain extent.  If you feel you have some
    material that's original, please call and we'll include it in the next issue
    possible.  Also, you are welcomed to put up these philes on your BBS/AE/Catfur/
    Etc.  The philes will be regularly available on Metal Shop.  If you wish to say
    in the philes that your BBS will also be sponsering Phrack Inc., please leave
    feedback to me, Taran King stating you'd like your BBS in the credits.  Later
