                               The first annual,

                              X M A S C O N  '90

     Well, it's getting closer.. XmasCon is next month and we plan on having
the biggest gathering of Hackers & Feds since SummerCon '88!

     This event was going to be private until word got out.  A journalist
(unnamed) found out about the private event and decided to make it public news
in the magazine for which he writes.  Well, after seeing the words: "XMASCON"
in a magazine with less readers than Phrack, we decided to announce it
ourselves.  So, here it is-- Your OFFICIAL invitation to the gathering that
should replace the painful memories of SummerCon'90 (SCon'90? What do you mean?
there was a SummerCon this year? HA. It surprised me too).
