** If you overdraft your bank account you have to pay a 500cr fine to a random bank account. A truly random bank account. This means that, if you have multiple bank accounts, you may have to pay a fine to yourself.



** Calling the InterNIC server's insecurity 'chronic' is like calling water ''wet'', to emphasise. However, there's still the Uplink Test Server that you can break into to cover your tracks.

Added DiffLines:

* FunnyMoments: The fact that you can get people arrested for literally ''anything'' as long as you follow up the charges with a parole violation. This extends to completely nonsensical charges like "meme smuggling" or "[[FelonyMisdemeanor being a jerk]]".

* ParanoiaFuel: You won't know you've actually done something fatal (or at least extremely inconvenient, if you've got a motion tracker and explosives and enough cash to restart) until you get a sudden blank screen.

*** To be fair, [[spoiler:you only get around 20-30 seconds real time even on a high bounce connection to cover your tracks after confirming the transaction and you NEVER know how much you have time left as they use passive traces. It IS doable, but you need to be lightning quick.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** That example actually demonstrates the problem even better: [[spoiler:You don't have to delete all of the transfer logs--just the one that directly connects to your gateway. So if InterNIC's your first connection point for both bank hacks, all you have to do is clean the bank logs, DC, then go to InterNIC and delete your outgoing logs and the logs that say you logged in as an admin and edited logs. Then sit back for like five minutes and wait for your rating upgrade to come.]]
