Razor 1911, Abnormal, The Cartel
Copy-Party in Stixrdal/Norway
The party was originally held 7-9th
October. But some people (TTT, Academy,
The Quackers and The Gang) arrived
already at the evening of 5th October.
But most people arrived at Thursday
(6th) evening and in the morning of
Friday (7th). All in all we were about
140 persons at the copy-place. Not
bad,if you think of how far north Stjx-
rdal is (Middle of Norway by a city
At Friday we had a couple of break-
downs for the power-supply but we manag
ed to fix the whole shit later on.
There was a demo competition on both
C64 and Amiga. Rawhead took the 1st
price on C64 with a mind-blasting demo.
On the Amiga The Arcadia Team won
with their cool demo-disk. On the Amiga
there were 8 participating demos and
on the C64 there were 11.
There weren't really much 'burning
hot' stuff on the party but some few ->
new games and a lot of new demos of
course. At Saturday the police arrived
and asked if we did some illegal copy-
ing and of course no-one were copying
one single game.The cops said that they
would come back later the same evening
and if they saw some illegal copied
stuff then they would confiscate the
disk-owners computer equipment. They
also told us that they had insiders on
the party. (Who? Where?) but I think
that they told us this only to scare us
a bit. Some guys ( 10 - 15 ) left
immediately after the cop had arrived.
In the evening one (!) police constable
arrived but he didn't even think of
confiscating any computers. He was just
briefing on some pictures and looked
at our nice demos.He also admitted that
he had copied some stuff himself when
he had a C64. So all in all we can say
that this guy was a quite nice guy.
There were almost no people coming
from outside Norway and Sweden (As a
matter of fact I can't remember one
single one) but that didn't make the
party boring. Some of the people on the
party were The Gang, Route 66, TSF,TNT,
The Link, The Arcadia Team, Sphinx,
Rawhead, SCT, Network, Academy, Crypto-
burners, Force10, Raw Deal, Shape (ex.
ZCF ), The Techincal Trio, Equinoxe and
lots of other guys. There were a lot of
people from the press at the party so
if you wanna read about the party then
look out for Aftenposten (A-Magasinet),
Dator (Norway and maybe Sweden) and the
new Norwegian mag called 'Norsk data
tidene' ( Or something like that). Now
and then we were showing videofilms,
mostly hard violence like Evil Dead II
and Friday the 13th part 155. I think
we can say that the party was a success
even if only 2/3 of the people who said
they would come did so.
