 now we present to our readers the long
 awaited interview with xxx of talent!
 enjoy the interview. m:mamba.. x=xxx!
 m:hi paul, tell all the readers a bit
   about yourself?

 x:well, i am 21 years old! don't work
   with computers! i work as a timber
   machinist and i am fast at getting

 m:how long have you been in the scene?
   and how did your career start?

 x:i've been in the scene about 5/6 yrs
   first of all me and a local lamer
 x:airborne started a small group
   called the nfl(not ths usa group?)
   we started trading with honey/1001
   and sledgehammer/hotline and a local
   group to me called bcs! after a
   while trading sledgehammer asked us
   to join hotline. i was doing all the
   cracking and airborne did not do
   anything. bod joined hotline a while
   after us. i bought myself a 1670
   from sledgehamme. to cut a long
   story short after a while of things
   going ok we had a big argument with
   sledgehammer over who we traded in
   the usa! it was after cracking the
   game aaargh! sledge wanted us to
   trade with asterix but me and darren
 x:wanted to stay with inc. the next
   day we got the game xybots! then we
   decided to quit hotline and form
   talent. sledgehammer found out about
   us quiting after seeing our first
   release 'xybots' we then started to
   crack/release a lot more wares. then
   hotline disintegrated from a good
   group to nothing. this was around
   september 1989. then around xmas 89
   ikari wanted to come back to the
   scene and thats where the legendary
   co-op was started! we were trading
   with inc. then when they decided to
   stop importing we moved between a
   few usa groups until we found tsm!
   that's where we are today!
 m:tell us where you got your handle

 x:well it started a long time ago. one
   day when i was playing space invader
   and i got the hi-score. i decided to
   just place 3 xxx's in there! and it
   has stuck ever since.

 m:what do you think about the scene
   today compared to the scene a year
   or so back?

 x:well, i think it is slowing down
   quite a bit. but since the carts are
   coming out. there is hope for the 64
   there used to be loads of games
 x:released and now there is hardly
   anything. all the programmers have
   gone onto 16bit machine and consoles
   most of the people left coding games
   now are ex-crackers.

 m:have you any regrets about your
   years on the 64?

 x:not really, it is enjoyable and
   challenging to get the cracks out
   first. especially now that the
   cartridges have arrived.

 m:what do you do in your spare time?

 x:i spend most of my time working.
 x:i play a lot of snooker and sleep.
   i also watch quite a few movies.
