Like I said in the other posting for a piece with the same name (sans remix), Liam needs to keep up the good work or his skills will become his liability. Don't let this happen, please! We need artists in this world!

   War Of The SuperUsers
    by Liam the lemming

This is a remix of my first
ever S3M. Its roots are way
back in TetraMed, a 4-track
module editor... and it had
reached a dead-end. Just as
well I found ScreamTracker
3, really, or it'd still be
dead on my hard drive!

There's a story behind this
one as well, of course.
Well, what's a song without
a story to go with it? :)

This tune was basically
going nowhere, but I burst
into a frenzy of creativity
(again!) to finish it off
after spinning off a whole
tune (with a lyric! Wow!)
in a matter of days. I
spent about a week or two
fine-tuning it to make sure
it sounded *just* right.

Eventually, I got it more
or less perfect. And then I
accidentally wrote another
module over it. AAAARGH!
Fortunately, all was not
lost, as I had overwritten
it over another module some
days before. (One of the
bugs in ST v3.01 - I've got
version 3.21 now, luckily.
That bug isn't there any
more, so I'm happy.)

Where was I? Oh yeah, the
makeshift backup. I'd taped
the "perfect" version of
the module before I
overwrote it, and I spent
several tortuous hours
carefully tweaking the old
version until I was sure it
sounded right.

This is the end result. And
I'm well proud of it!

The name was inspired by
two things. One was the way
it sounds - the gorgeous
"beep" sample sounds a tad
digital and there's a nice
kind of electronic "hum"
from the sine tone - the
other was the fact that a
large number of my friends
from the JMU got banned
from the VAX mainframe by
the computer services
department (the much-hated
CSD *ptooie*) for things
which either they didn't do
or were mainly harmless.

It triggered off a war of
words which is still going
on today, and when I was
listening to this tune on
my Walkman one day as I
went to uni I conjured up
an image of a small solid
core of users hacking into
the network and waging war
on CSD.

So I named it War Of The
SuperUsers. Well, I like it
and I wrote it, so nyer! ;)

Hello's to those caught in
the crossfire...
Lee O'Brien, Bryan Jones,
Jon Barker, Chris Bruce,
Russ Threadgold, Steve
Reece, Dave Adamson, Ian
Slavin, Shereen Walters,
Shaun Barry, Rachel Duxbury
and all the silent victims.

Happy listening! And don't
forget, if it's a CSD rule,
IT'S THERE TO BE BROKEN! ;)
