Hey.........

Whats up there liver tits...... I never knew you were a software rapist.

I suppose the bigger thing is that you are still around after all these years

Thankfully this forum has you hanging around.

Yep still around, still doing what I do best!

It's been a long trip. Back then, it was games on the C-64. Search the file for 20 CF FF (JSR $FFCF) which was the "read sector from floppy" call in the kernel. A few well placed EAs later, and you were good to go. Did a bunch of my cracking back then with what was in essence a sector editor. Didn't have no fancy disassemblers like IDA! I had to use the machine language monitor built into the Epyx Fastload cartridge. (Shakes cane in the air).

So thanks again guys, this was TOTALLY unexpected, but greatly appreciated.
