So amazing what huge impact those first cracking-groups had on us. Nowadays there are groups cracking 5000+ appz and you have never heard of them before. Astonishing :).

I always asumed it was the army section-8 code (mentally unfit) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_8_(military) mainly because it always reminded me of 'Klinger' in M*A*S*H tv-series.. but i could be totally wrong ;)

Hi Birdy! Well I don't know anything about the game, but noticed that we both belong to the same species, and I became excited and happy and just wanted to share my emotions :)

I think the first cracked game I ever got was a Section 8 one. I always wondered what the name meant, does anyone know?

Some of their cracks have the BASIC line 2003 or 2004, meaning is unknown to me.

Section 8 helped set the stage for the evolution of the C64. Some of the first warez on my BBS were from this group. I did not know any of them but they were well respected as early pioneers in the software cracking world.

Yes, Radar!
You´re right. There were two Section 8 groups.
The origin was active between 1983-1985. They were called "Reset-Cracker". I think in the mid-90s, a new S8 was formed, but had nothing to do with the origin. I met Wizzler from the new fraction this summer and he confirmed that nobody of the new group knows anyone from the origin. It´s the same with Flash Cracking Group or the Bitstoppers as much as Eaglesoft which wasn´t found by Mitch & By-Tor. They only took over in 1985!
