* GoodBadBugs: Early versions of the game had dead or arrested people answer their phones like nothing was wrong. Also, phone calls would sometimes play in SlowMotion, which just sounded ridiculous.

* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: After you complete a mission to hack into a server and delete key files, a news story will note how the company has lost years of work. Apparently none of them have considered backing up their precious data on removable, offline media.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: To a insane degree. Need to delete a load of files on a server? You could either delete them manually- or go into the console, access the registry and purge it, clearing it 5 times faster. Anything that can be done on a computer can likely be done in Uplink.

* DiscOneNuke: If you know how, it's fairly easy to rob a bank and funnel a couple million dollars into your bank account, thereby allowing you to buy all the best hardware and software early on.

The game even baits you with this early on; after a few safe missions to modify data in the International Academic Database, you'll find a mission to trace a recent funds transfer - in the order of ''900,000'' credits...
