Anything with "ArtSoft" on it came through Waterloo, Iowa. ArtSoft had the habit of stealing credit for hacks and I know that he really did some of what he took credit for. However, our little group of about 6 pirates had an old man with connections in Australia, New Zealand, UK, and Sweden. I contributed to one of the hacks but, I relied on two Happy drives and a Duplicator drive. Then came the breaker program from the maker of the Duplicator and it removed the protection from almost everything which took the fun out of making copies.
I read the entire thread and I can relate that the real game wasn't playing the software as much as it was the Protectors VS the Pirates. I always bet on the Pirates to crack/hack/copy it within two weeks of release.
