    Their Deployment Tracker has already obliterated the Baltic Sea!

    It was our last bastion against the Poles.

    It just occured to me that this might be an ad for Uplink 2.

    Damn. Wished I had seen it before the launch.

    Seems as if they actually put some effort into the whole thing. The whole random codes and shit are a nice touch.

    Very reminiscent of all those Alternate Reality and internet puzzle (This Is Not Porn, et al) games.
