      some interesting magazines are
      the playboy and the penthouse.

  ? : ok, now some questions referring
      to the computer, tell us some-
      thing about your c64-career !

  ! : i founded x-ray in 1988, but, on
      the whole, i was in about twenty
      different groups like rsi,sharks
      transcom,inxs ect.

  ? : how many members are in x-ray
      and who ?

  ! : only me and slasher, but we are

      still in cooperation with succes
      which consist of 3 members.

  ? : what is your task in your group ?

  ! : cracking, spreading, making our
      magazine perestroika and a little
      bit coding, but i usually have
      no time to code.

  ? : how did you get your handle ?

  ! : i found it at a description of
      an action-film in a tv-magazine!

  ? : how did you become famous ?

  ! : hmmm, in 1987 i coded the
      'noise master' and some time
      later i made the n.m. i+ii for
      the sharks, i coded some demos
      in 1988 together with typhus for
      inxs and the sharks.
      besides, i am swapping with about
      15-20 people, most of them good

      unknown of transcom!
      the best group ever is dynamic

  ? : what is your opinion about the
      current scene ?

      lame, because everybody is making
      speed cracks, the versions are
      mostly short and trained, but
      many games are crashing in a
      higher level !

  ? : what do you think about demos ?

      i founded x-ray, they visited me
      and took all my hardware.
      i made a deal with them : they
      kept my hardware and i didn't get
      a denunciation.

  ? : why are you using your computer
      for illegal activities ?

  ! : there is no other way ! i can
      spend only 2 hours a day with the
      computer, so i have no time to

      cracking on the amiga, but i am
      in no group at the moment.

  ? : what do you think about
      americanos/euros ?

  ! : i heard that most amis aren't
      able to fix euro-games, in europe
      are more capable people !

      what would you change ?

      and shit-talking magazines !!!
