hi there,

I thought i'd check in and say hi. I was a modem trader for Cynix back in the day.

Here is my contribution to this thread, first a letter from the Federal Software Coalition. I especially like the bit about the US Secret Service and FBI.

Marl...you mentioned 'Rob', is that or was that the infamous 'Rob C' from the famous Atari 8bit boot menu's (nice and colourful)

I was told that was not was is the same person as rob c, apparently he worked in a postal sorting office in manchester

Did he ever use omnimon or ultimon (A8 again) to crack the games for his rob c menu's

Also, i remember 'george' from blackpool and 'john williams'

Is the person behind the JW (john williams) and multiboot menus the same person that used to program games for the A8 (Atari 8bit) through English software (birmingham)

YES!

Both True!

You'd have to ask him that, that was before we met (as the story somewhere on this site explains)

Don't recall George. As for John, I always liked the Star wars theme music :wink:

Sorry, Dunno, was a big fan of multiboot though.

And the games of Bill Williams 8)

Wow just stumbled across this thread after spending all last night enjoying all my old automation disks on the atari st! Yes i have lots, and the majority still work!

Great to see the pictures, i found myself getting quite giddy reading through the back stories and such, a great deal of my youth was spent enjoying the atari St and all the scene releases.

I used to get all my disks via my mates dad. He must have had some sort of contact as he used to get them by the shed load, all I remember was his name was Ken and he worked at needlers sweet factory in Hull. Lol

Anyways, thanks for the great read and the trip down memory lane, would love to hear and read more from groups and folks active in the ST scene!
