nice to have one more tuga in the neighborhood

It´s true that at the early 90´s were hackers here in Portugal that used Amigas at the time and I even edited a tv story about some of that guys because they were caught by the cops.
They ordered many things abroad with fake credit cards they used to make with a stolen algorithm
and pay telephone bills, etc introducing false information in the computers of corresponding companies here in Portugal.
They were not arrested because bank managers were afraid that people would know and would not use credit cards any more. So that guys had to be present at police station 1 time per week.
Later I was at home of one of that guys and at that time he earn money at home trading shares of US companies with a computer and also sell me 2 CD´s full of pirated software that I still have.
Those were the times
