How to sign up for an account at The Soviet
        The Mare Crisium Soviet Socialist Regency is a public-access Unix
        system offering shell access for personal and non-commercial use.
        Before asking for an account on The Soviet, please read:
 (TXT)  Principles and Organisation of The Soviet
 (DIR)  Frequently Asked Questions about The Soviet
        and be sure you agree with what is written in there.
        To request an account on this server, please send an email to KatolaZ
        (katolaz at freaknet dot org), using the subject "Soviet new user
        account", and including your *public* SSH key in attachment. Please be
        sure to attach your *public* SSH key, not the private one. If you don't
        know how to generate an SSH key, then find it out and come back when you
        have one. You will usually receive a reply to your request within one or
        two days, containing information on how to login and use the system.
        The owner of an account is the sole responsible for the content
        published from that account and for the actions performed by that user.
        The Union reserves the right to suspend or terminate an account upon 
        evident breach of the Principles of the Soviet, detailed above.
        There are no backups, except for system-related files, so you are on
        your own on that front.
        For current users in Zaibatsu and Republic: we are enforcing a
        "no-dual-citizenship" policy, meaning that a user can have an account
        on only one of the three colonies. This is in the interest of fairness,
        and indeed there is no point into having multiple accounts, since the
        users of the three colonies share access to the common text-based BBS,
        to the internal email system, and to all the software developed in the
        wide system.
        Nevertheless, if you really want to move your account on The Soviet,
        the admins will help you migrate your data.
