Before you read any of the following we should warn you that not a word
of it is true.
Topix is in fact an organisation originally set up in 1955 as a highly
secret group to organise underground resistance against a communist
government should this ever come to power in Western Europe. With the
chances of this ever happening sharply declining over the last couple of
years it developed a severe crisis of identity, necessitating intensive
psychiatric treatment for the leading figures within Topix. As a means of
providing them with a new reason to live, their therapists decided to
brainwash them into releasing Public Domain software for an obscure computer
known only by insiders as "Archimedes". Although the brainwash was
incomplete (still the members of Topix are only known by their code names
Cardinal Biggles), they proved to be able to reach
an extremely high level of excellence at the task that was set for them.
So, if you're in some sort of computer trouble, and no-one else can help,
maybe you can hire..... TOPIX!
