   side  : s
   mamba : m

  m : hello side.
      tell us something about yourself!

  s : well, my name is said and i'm a
      19 year old male, i'm a part
      marrocan, part dutch with brown
      eyes and hair, my length is about
      1.75 meters and i'm getting
      trained in the telephone business

  m : what's about your computer
      career ?

  s : well, i started out as a lamer
      in '84, years later tbf asked
      me to join sphinx(cuz i got a
      modem) and after some months i
      got a fight with him concerning
      at&t's. that day i got a phone-
      call from sledgehammer asking me
      cuz bam bam was at the point of
      being thrown out!
      so i joined on the condition that
      my good friend rico could also
      join, and well, i'm still here...

  m : what's about your group ?

  s : hotline exists for the 6th year
      now, and some big names that have
      been in are popeye, coco, bambam,
      rico, xxx, bod, airborne, 3030,
      sh, marc...
      the current members are only
      rob, tss and me !
      sledge and sh are on the st as
      the no 1 group hotline !

  m : how did you get your handle ?

  s : i got my name from learning
      americans pronouncing my name.
      (the only who said it like it
      really is was pudwerx on a 3way!)

  m : what do you think about the scene
      today, what would you change ?

  s : the scene today is like constant
      new groups who die and start a
      new one. there's also too much
      attention to the lamers !
      if i could change anything, i
      would confiscate all modems
      except from the elites !

  m : what do you think about
      americans/euros ?

  s : the europeans are ok, but there
      are a lot of americans who do
      nothing but bullshitting on how
      cool they are (in real life)

  m : are there still any aims you want
      to reach ?

  s : no, i've been in a group which
      was no 1 and i have been the
      no 1 importer '90, i don't think
      there's more to do (or the lust
      to do it!)

  m : did you ever regret the years
      of computer ?

  s : no, it has been fun and without
      it i would never had the friends
      and music and video contacts i
      have now !

  m : who do you think is the best
      group ever/today ?

  s : as the best group ever i would
      say hotline or ikari...

  m : did you ever get in troubles with
      the cops ?

  s : yeah, but not cuz of computers,
      although i once got shit with
      a phone-company for using their
      pbx (someone mentioned my name)

  m : what are your future plans
      concerning computer ?

  s : i have no plans after the c64
      dies, but maybe i changed my mind
      by that time and go either amiga,
      st or pc!

  m : describe a lamer! (no names)

  s : a lamer is someone who thinks

      is a '0' !!!

  m : uff, ok, what's about your

      c64, 2 1581'er, 1 1541'er, a
      colour monitor, a commodore-
      printer ! i got my computer in
      1982 and i ran up a 1800 dollar
      phone-bill in one month !

      because of this i put it up for
      8 years and several months ago
      i decided to return because of
      boredom !
      about 6 months ago i got asked
      by horizon and tdo to join nec
      as a wares-spreader! i also hack
      at&t's !
      in 1982, after i saw the film
      wargames,i had to buy a computer!

  b : nec has been around for a year
      and a half. horizon started the
      group. ther have been so many

      computing, it was my nickname.

  m : what do you think about the scene
      today ?

  b : overall the scene is pretty good,
      but people are telling too much
      bullshit about others for no
      reason! compared to the former

      was !
