Mr. Z

Mr. Z is the idol of many Swedish hackers. To most early C64 people Mr. Z was THE Hacker, spelled with a big H. Many say he was the first real Swedish hacker ever, and he started cracking already in 1983. He used a funny intro with horizontal raster bars which has since then been spotted all around the globe – Russia, USA and Turkey included. Mr. Z was born 1970, and retired from the Scene in 1987, since then refusing to have anything to do with it. He was also one of the original TRIAD members and the most active cracker in the group during 1986 and 1987.

Further information from Warren Pilkington:

Mr. Z also contributed numerous listing POKEs to the famous computer magazine Zzap! 64 in 1987. Amongst his most famous listings that appeared were ones for The Last Ninja, Head Over Heels and Star Paws. Obviously as European release dates were ahead of the UK by two weeks, it meant he could get the games earlier to work on and then send off his listings to Zzap! who were appreciative of his work.
