CRACKERS II: The Data Storm

What, another book? Count me in!!

Here we go again! Macro Breddin has the next Atari ST book on Indiegogo itching to be backed by the community. Sadly, I've not had the time to properly read through the first Crackers book and already the second is on its way! Like the three 'Borders' books before it, the Crackers book, The Gold Rush, is of the same high standard. In fact, I prefer this style, design and have thoroughly enjoyed what I've read so far. Check out my ST shelf!

Okay, the second volume takes us forward into the glorious 1990s...

"The Data Storm will look at the transformation of the illegal scene in the 90s. Between the U.S., Europe and Hong Kong, crackers strove for global deals through huge data lines. Bigger and better umbrella organizations emerged. From then on, cracking and hacking games developed into an international business – even with sophisticated hardware copying tools. The narrative of CRACKERS II reveals the story of some outstanding crackers and hackers on C64, SNES, Megadrive (Genesis), Amiga and especially on the Atari ST.

Relive the best computer times and experience the exceptional methods of famous code breakers, disk dealers, software pirates and lawmakers in the 1990s."

Anybody else only interested in the Atari ST side? Nah, I should keep an open mind hehe! Righto folks, if you loved any of the first books then I'm sure you're as excited to support this latest volume just as much as myself.

Don't dawdle as there is little time remaining, so back it now over on Indiegogo /|\
