Jeff Smart (born 1968) was active in TRIAD during 1988. He was most known for publishing the magazine “Illegal” which was one of the first ever to review and write about activities in the C64 underground scene. This magazine was published on paper, and if you have some few copies around: lock them in a safety deposit box!, they will be valuable sooner or later. One of the most appreciated columns in Illegal was “The Story of System 4”, a causerie of the Scene containing heaps of additions to TRIAD mythology.
In fact, Illegal was one of the first magazines ever to publish “Charts”, ranking groups in different categories. After “old” TRIAD’s decline Jeff joined Scouse Cracking Group (SCG) in late September 1988. In May 1989 he was busted by German Police for swapping pirated software. The case was dropped due to lack of evidence but Jeffs equipment was destroyed in the process, and he was told never to publish a cracker fanzine again. It is no secret that Jeff never liked “new” TRIAD.
