Swiss Cracking Association Archive, Pt. 1

As announced a while ago, here is the first installment of the documents from the archive of Swiss Cracking Association, the legendary C64 and Amiga cracking and demo group from Zurich. The core of the group were two brothers: Saturnus the Invincible and Smith the Software Pope. While Saturnus’ responsibility within the group was more on the coding/cracking side – including the crack of “Summer Games” with the hacked-in Swiss anthem, and, of course, the infamous SCA Virus -, Smith tended to focus on the communication side of things. Today, we present you with scans from his stash, including letters from all over the world, as well as a really rare set of internal documents: two versions of SCA’s address list [version 1 / version 2] as well as two greeting lists [list 1 / list 2]!
