Our timetabling system was written by one of the science teachers on a BBC Micro model B, which was running on SymbNet around the school.

Again, this isn't supposed to be a history of phreaking, its just my story - take it or leave it. I'm certainly not saying I was the first.

And as for coming here just to promote the book, I was actually here 2 years ago (on this very thread) looking for old friends - when WayneK said he knew the "truth" about what happened to me, so I came back to post a link to my "truth" once I had finished the book.

Cheers and Merry Christmas to all!

Fair enough. I'll blame old father time, as at my age I have to think long and hard about events 30+ years ago

I went to high school in 1984-1989, so you are correct. But they did have a BBC at my middle school in late '82/early '83 i believe.

You might want to revise the book then

"Our story starts in 1981 on the Isle of Wight, England. PMF was one of the first to pick up and use computers to his advantage knowing more than the teachers, he promptly took over the computers..."

:-)

Only joshing you a bit. Is it on Amazon?

@PMF: Ignoring for a moment the differences between our recollections of your "story", whatever happened to your old mate Gilby? (I hope I'm remembering correctly, you were usually using a shared account back then PMF+Gilby?)... just thought I'd ask since this thread is about where friends from those days ended up

Just reading some sourcecode and another name popped in my head, a finnish guy by the name of Pasi L (wont post his full surname but know it still) in some place I can't pronounce but I remember as Kuusankoski or something and I still remember he sent me a copy of the local paper.

Kept in touch with a few via FB etc, but I seem to be the only one still playing around with Amigas.
