They couldn’t have provided a better copy?


Agreed. It would actually be useful to me if I could read it. I find myself frequently googling these things. Maybe it’s that I’m getting old or maybe it’s my respect for language. I’m the type to use punctuation in text messages, commas and all.

I love the fact that you picked that one, because it looks like the theme for the day.

Also, from page 46: NO1 means no one. Any spy that needs that one deciphered needs a new fucking job.

Actually, it looks like a dot matrix print out that has been FAXed…

CYA = See Ya or Cover You’re A**

Also note they missed ‘FTP’. Someone feeling a little sensitive?
