Being hacked by P.H.Reaking

At four o'clock that afternoon we received a telegram announcing that all telephone lines in Paradiso would be shut down, because we had regularly used stolen NUI's. There was great excitement in the building as a result, until someone carefully looked at the telegram and saw that it was signed by P.H.Rieking. When we realized that 'phreaking' was the author of the telegram, the joke became clear. The rumour was that P.H. Reaking had hacked the telex system of the phone company. All telephone lines in Paradiso kept on working till we closed. That evening a party closed the amazing gathering, and the ICATA declaration, one of the first hacker manifestos, was sent into the world.
