If you are reading this file, you have access to UCS. As you know, the server has moved to inet address 18.104.22.168; telnet there as superuser to enter command mode. Unauthorized use of the UCS system will result in severe penalties. You are contracted to keep the existence of UCS a secret; information leaks are dangerous and will be dealt with appropriately. Do not attempt to enter the "private" directory.

What's this pillar of salt doing next to your terminal? You get weirder every day. Damn, what did you do to your bed? It looks like someone took a Cuisinart to it... Guess you had some fun... :) Speaking of which, you should be down in the stat lab. Linda is down there acting horny as hell. She's begging all the geeks to go to bed with her.
