Probably... to find who exactly get the file alt.hacker.Z from the directory usenet/control/alt/ on ftp.uu.net ObHack: I coded an auto-reply mailbox on my system using ms-batch, a utility I had written in C, another utility I coded in ASM and a debug script that modified a data file, and yes.. it worked.. provided that is I only got one request per session!
