March 4th, 2007 - Richard Joseph has passed away
Hello. I'm very sorry to inform you that musician Richard Joseph (Barbarian, Cauldron 2) passed away this afternoon. He was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year, and was undergoing chemo but was very weak. He slipped into a coma earlier today but sadly his body gave up earlier this afternoon. I got to know Richard thanks to the Back in Time Live events, and he was just the kindest person to talk to, and a top lad! Rest in peace Richard. (Source: Morpheus of http://www.c64.com)
AlfFebruary 200737From the web-log of Scan (http://arminus.darktech.org/blog/2007/02/rest-in-peace.php):

Quote:
Rest in peace, "Alf"

Last week an old friend of mine, whom I've known since I was 14 or something, died at the age of 38. Together with Carlo (aka Alf from The New Generation Crew) I wrote my very first demo on the Commodore 64 and was one of the main influences in my life that made me decide I wanted to work with computers.

Rest in peace, Carlo, you will be remembered.

Shizzcat1995UnknownBIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE YUGOSLAVIA

This story started some good time ago (actually in August '88) when we organized a copy party at some youth club. It was done by MR.PRO (at that time in THP), COZY MC (brain damage) and me, SHIZZCAT. I know that you've never heard of these names, but they're pretty popular here in Yugoslavia. At that time we found a free telephone line and started exploiting it, so we called our friends like MAD ALL, STRIDER/FAIRLIGHT, JEFFIE, FUN FUN/TRIANGLE, MATRIX/DOM and many others, frequently every weekend from there.
The other day (February, 2nd 1989) I again walked to the youth club without anyone else this time, because nobody was at home. I got there and called JEFFIE up. A few minutes later, somebody turned on the lights in the corridor and I heard some voices. Two policemen and a janitor (sounds familiar) came in the room. The pigs wanted to examine me, but I didn't let them. But I got hit over my mouth with a police club. They took me to the station, and started all that investigation. I kept MR.PRO's name quiet, although he made 1/3 of all phone calls.
One inspector took my photos and my fingerprints. They drove me home and gave me a piece of paper which invited me for more examinations at the police office later on. The telephone bill I got made me almost getting an infarct - it was over 4,000,000 Dinars (which is something like 2000 DM or 850 GBP). So I told everything to my father, who must now pay for the whole shit. Well that was the first time I ever had problems with the police, but I think I had it in style. /SHIZZCAT of VICTORY
