"In 1983 I got my first computer, a Commodore Vic20. I did a lot of basic-programming before moving on machine language, and even cracking my first game. In 1986 I moved on to the C64.

I was a member of Thanatos when Scratch and I met back in 1988. Thanatos later joined forces with Pulsar, and I became their main cracker, gradually sharpening my skills and getting better by the day. After a series of arguments with the danish organizer I was tempted to leave the scene for good. It was at this point in time (summer of 1990) that Scratch asked me to join Triangle as a cracker. Later on I also programmed a series of packers.

Triangle was the perfect group for me - a dedication to quality, no swappers breathing down your neck, even if it took you a week to crack a game - and what's more; the other Trianglers are great guys.

Although I have since moved onto the Amiga and later the PC I still use my C64 and my Vic20. I have never forgotten the 8-bit machines and I don't think I ever will."
