...and re-merged - turned out this "brother" was indeed one of his multiple fake handles: see Note #2. Still trying to find out if he really had a brother or not. :)
He even made up a dead coke-addicted hobo: Chorra and others - I also created 2 new handles, as in the aforementioned Orrey's demo he greets mostly himself in form of his various aliases in one scroller. 8P

He did indeed have a brother who did no coding. All things credited to Orrey were created solely by Ratfink.

Cool, thanks for confirming - and this brother was indeed called Andrew I reckon? In one scroller he gives his phone number, to ask for Andrew - I wonder what his brother talked with folks, if somebody really called that is. :-)

This is confusing. Many years ago I met "Chorra" in person, and he claimed he was homeless. Was this person actually Rat, or would he have been the original Chorra whose identity Rat later appropriated?

At this point I wouldn't trust anything this guy ever said, he seemed a compulsory liar and in need to have multiple identities even by impersonating others. :)

Hah, good question. Tell us more - how and where did you meet? On a scene event?
I wouldn't be surprised if The Ratfink actually did even meet others under another identity...
Btw, is "Chorra" some lingo expression? I mean, the -orr- does hint to The Ratfink's surname. :-)

Met at a scene event early to mid 1990s at Newcastle, Australia. He claimed he was from a town on the north coast of New South Wales. IIRC he demonstrated some coding ability or at least some knowledge of coding.

Would have been before July 1991, as it was then when Chorra allegedly died...
Looking at his only release Simultanious Text And FLI Logo Flexer it does look like Ratfink style, I would say. It might well be that he played the role to that extent. Is Newcastle far from NSW? Do you remember any other folks from that party? Was it this one: T.D.U. Party ?

Newcastle is a coastal city 160km North of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales (NSW). The TDU party you referenced is not the same one I met Chorra at. That was a smaller gathering. I can't remember any other attendees apart from DJB and, perhaps, Witty.

I am in contact with Witty through fb, although he is rarely checking - will ask him. Of course he would have been part of the scheme. :)
