Handlestory :
Real name (previously not connected with the handles in the database). Sources are the HVSC (there's a directory for him in VARIOUS), a posting made by Ironfist to Lemon64 a while back and, hopefully, my own memory! (T.M.R)

^ I would like to point out that there's a few inaccuracies in the HVSC collection and i've tried a few times to have them corrected. The Insanity tune was written by Emil Helldin (Red Devil/Fairlight), the tune "stolen" was a rip of a tune I partially recoded and I did'nt know the authors name, hence I put "Stolen by " in there as in the act of theft and not the tune name.

Trivia :
And, not ever disclosed before, Me and Russ were also members of Airwolf-Team (remember the Airwolf intro Russ/Ironfist made?). We used the nicks Cloak & Dagger and made a few releases - then the guys from the group shifted from cracks. It was only something we did whilest waiting for EBES to take off.

Currently I'm leeching off all the C64 sites and sorting through them - so if you run a FTP/HTTP site and see someones raping your bandwidth - that'll more than likely be me.

Last year I found out I had Aspergers Syndrome which will - if you Google the symptoms - explain why I was completely nuts. I still am. Ah well.

Lastly, to my knowledge, i'm the only person to have ever written a demo using all 3 interrupts. People claim that impossible, but if you end an NMI with "and #$00, tay, tax, brk" - work it out ;)

Yup - forgot the TeKLord of PoWerAge too - some of the files for that nick are found at http://www.geocities.com/warlocktmm/shs ... including the incomplete "Penguin Towers" and Level Editor I knocked up for it.
When I wrote the "I got bored" demo, I made the plasma part first as i'd seen many and coded it different (cant remember THAT far back - it's like nearly 10 years or something!). Then I made that Picture (from Paul Kubiszyn) with music by Wanderer as the depacker thingy to show off more. The LevelCruncher thingy - set the steps to $ff and pack with it - a few times it's beaten AB level Cruncher and I'm still waiting for FXJ to pay up ;)

In 1994 he was part of a debacle described in About Warlock, where it is stated that he had stolen a loader game from Ocean or Mastertronic, and delivered it to Laser who release it as Mini Munch +. Uzzy of Entropy, a friend of the coder of the game, was obviously furious.

In 1995 ASL/Ewen stated that he was in/had taken over Genesis Project UK, and some releases exist where he borrowed old G*P graphics from Scope. He even states in A Lesson in Psychology that he is the only coder left in G*P, and that he "also have to run the archives, design projects and finance the network". He was however not a member of G*P. See reference in G*P:s production We Are Dead from 1995.
