bung it in and run it, and if you dont have a gus, suffer.

this was completed over an allnighter by jedi, while the others slacked
around playing one must fall and listening to music. jedi, as a result,
got bass headaches and an irritation to blue colours. as a stressed out
snag his veangeful sub-conscious has placed numerous strategic bugs to
ensure that it wont run perfectly on your machine.

we think it adds character.

how did you guys start?
  basically, around april 94, after the closure of a few groups in perth
  oxygen was formed. within a few months all the slack do-nothing members
  were weeded out, and the group consisted of four members- jedi, kitsune
  statix and x-cell. june '94 came and oxygen released their first amateur
  effort for a local congregation called the c-party. it came first, and
  the response we got was pretty positive. since then there has been more
  member shuffling and numerous changes for the better.

what are you up to now?
  about 10 inches.

where do i sign up?
  umm, don't bother.. not unless you can withstand statix's singing monitor.

where should i start coding demos?
  from dos, type "echo y | deltree c:\".

			  how to speak to oxygen
			 - - ----- ------- ----------------------------------

if you have access to the internet, a good place to start would be to mail
one of us:

    <member>@oxygen.it.com.au, or directly...
	jedi                    jedi@omen.com.au
	statix                  kimba@it.com.au
	mantissa                sjm@it.com.au
	kitsune                 ua.gro.ygolohcysp.esrever@enustik
	trash                   jlchong@tartarus.uwa.edu.au

if you have access to a modem, another groovy way to do it is to call
the world headquarters.

mantissa's missing shared linux libraries
jedi's code
kitsune's monitor
kitsune's dog
the distance from the coke supply
statix's lilo, virii and cmos
american talk show hosts
the things that keep falling over under our feet at 3am
the star bbstro music that jedi keeps playing over and over and over
  .. and over and over and over and over and over.
the real thing music that statix keeps playing over and over and over.
kitsune's singing over and over and over.

and we love:
configure by char that mantissa keeps playing over and over and over and over
 .. "let's configure your ultrasound card..."
our cool coke can skyscraper
our ample supply of speakers
mantissa's computer
kryten, rimmer and crew
mantissa going and buying us cartons of coke
karen redhead, well, mantissa at least..
our horny little starman at the top of the document
