The Black Book / Cyber 'Zine

In high school, between 1990 and 1994, I used to write a little hack/phreak 'zine called The Black Book (later changed to Cyber 'Zine).  It was my attempt to create a real hack/phreak 'zine (e.g., Phrack, TAP, LOD/H Technical Journals, etc), not like the crap that's in $2600 Magazine.

It covered mostly the local scene in Green Bay, Wisconsin, where not much happens, but has a surprising number of dedicated, hardcore hackers/phreaks - just check the news every once and awhile.  Anyway, the 'zine started out kinda lame with just me making and distributing it.  Then I started using the school's computers to save money on printer cartridges and paper, and also started to get more people interested in helping.

There where a total of 14 issues (if I remember right) and a staff of about five people helping write articles and distribute.  If you ever bought an issue, and would like your money back, just ask.
