Handle:
Alfatech

How did you come up with your alias ?
Me and my father went by a company called Alfatech when i was around 14 years old. I thought it sound cool , but the best part of it was that there was just 8 letters. There was just 8 Sprites on the Commodore 64.

City / Country:
Jönköping / Sweden

Born year:
1971

What was your first computer, and when did you get it?

It was a Vic-20 and i think i was 10 Years old

How did you get into the scene and what groups have you been a member of ?

Hm. that was a tough question. I really don't remember how I hooked up with the scene Maybe it was when I made my first thingy in Machine Code (There was no assemblers at that time). I made a Disassembler in basic and made my first thing there!
I've been in alot of groups. I can't remember all of them. Here are some of them: Phenomena (Amiga) / Byterapers (C64-Amiga) / The Gang (Amiga) / Phoenix (Amiga) Triad (C-64) / Censor (C-64 - SNES)

What was the proudest moment in your career ?

I don't know. I feel that I havn't had any proud moments.

For what specific reason(s) do you think that you are remembered ?

Maybe
*Red Storm demo (Triad)
*Spasmolytic demo (Censor)
*Sidmania musicdemo (Censor-SNES)
*And probably some cracks I made on the C64!

What would you like to be remembered for ?

A very nice person that doesn't fuck around with others!

What made you stop the scene activity ? (and do you remember when?)
I got a job as a programmer on a software company in norway (FUNCOM),but I didn't stop there.
It was probably when I got tired of computing during summer 1995.

Thinking back on the good old days, is there anything you regret?
Maybe that i left Byterapers. They were really a bunch of cool guys. I can't remember.

What was your favorite:

GAME(S)
Sega Rally (Arcade and Sega Saturn)

DEMO(S)
Sidmania (I'm really proud of that. Geggin and me made a very good job) (outstanding! -Ed) Red Storm (I don't think that anybody has made that good demo on the 64)

PROGRAMMER(S) (OR PROGRAMMING TEAM(S))
There are alot of programmers that has to be mentioned:
Conqueror / C&Z, Psycho, Bob, Crt, Geggin, Slaygon, Slayer & a bunch of finish dudes. Most of the Scandinavian coders are really good.

CRACKER(S) (OR CRACKING GROUP(S))
King Fisher, Antitrack, Bacchus (Hej Pontus!), Eaglesoft (can't forget them), Censor, Triad, G*P, F4CG, Fairlight. I can't remeber all groups and people.
Most of the people and groups mentioned here was on the C64!

COMPOSER(S)
Jeroen Tel(MON), Laxity, Drax, Ole Marius Pedersen (Prosonix), Martin Galway, Rob Hubbard, TDM (Triad), Syndrom, Tomas Danko Jr. and alot of more.
Most of the musicians on the C64 had their good times!

BEST COMPOSED TRACK(S)
Terra Cresta, Parallax (I can play this one on guitar), Lightforce (Rub Hubbard). I could continue all day with this but stop here.

EVENT(S) (E.G. COPYPARTY)
The party in the begining was to f**king cool. Later on the latest parties has been like a fiasco. Everybody is think of how much money they will win. Booring! When I go to a party I go there just for 1 reason .. to meet old friends, grab a beer and talk about the good old times!!

MEMORY(S)
Hehe. When we in Censor went down to Party 3. We were screaming like hell in the bus. A guy named Lizard King (He was a member of Silents then) came back to us and said that if we didn't calm down ,he would say to the people at the party that they shouldn't let us in. But the funny part was when Geggin ask him if he did know the guy next besides Geggin. Ofcourse he didn't ... it was TED (one of the formers of Silents) said .. "I started Silents" Lizard breath (that what we called him the rest of the trip) went back and didn't said a word the rest of the trip. We were drunk like hell .. I can't even remember how the hell I came into the party!

DRINK ?
Beer (Ringnes (norweigan)) and Coca Cola

What are you doing nowadays ?
I'm a progammer on a software house doing Super Nintendo games.

What are you doing on your spare time?
Being with my girlfriend.

Is there anything you'd like to say to the public (read: admires)
Alot people made good things during my time. It would be wrong mentioning some people, everybody tried their best. Most of the people were friendly.

What is the meaning of life?
The meaning of life is to learn and teach other people. Why be arrogant? There is no need for that, it will just fuck you in a way. And one other thing... Don't forget real life!
