N.O.M.A.D / CRYSTAL - YOUR LAST BOOTBLOCK FOR SLIPSTREAM WAS YOUR BEST                     PIQ / V42 - IF YOU'RE STILL GOING, YOUR MEGA-BOOT WAS VERY PROFFESIONAL ,BUT DUE TO YOUR ROM CALLS IT DIDN'T WORK ON AMIGAS WITH 1.3 & 1.2                 LEXICON / ARCHAOS - ALRIGHT MATE...WE USED TO BE IN - INNER CITY - REMEMBER THAT ? ANYWAY VERY NICE BOOT , AND YOU BEAT US TO DISKCOPY APPARENTLY! I HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET! ...NEVER MIND!                 REBELS - I LIKED YOUR PAL OPTION BUT YOUR OTHER OPTIONS NEED IMPROVING.......        XAG OF EX-BETRAYAL - PROBOOT HAS SOME NICE IDEAS BUT THE OPTIONS ARE UNORIGINAL...........THATS ALL OF THE BOOTS I CAN REMEMBER AT THE MOMENT.....                                                       .ANARCHY. (HEY MEDIATOR SORRY ABOUT THE COMMENTS, WE WERE JUST PISSED OFF AFTER YOUR GROUPS VERY BAD PARTY, GIVE ME A CALL AND WE CAN HAVE A CHAT ABOUT IT O.K. ?) ALL COMMENTS TOWARDS .DAN. STILL STAND , WE AWAIT FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS IN THAT AREA.....IT'S SAD TO SAY IT BUT MOST OF THE CODERS ON THE 'SCENE' AGREE WITH ME......THINK ABOUT IT......HOW LONG DID 'MADNESS' TAKE TO COME OUT AFTER DAN'S LITTLE VECTORLIZER INTRO FOR SLIPSTREAM ?    YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING WHY WE (SD) HAVE STARTED ALL THIS ... WELL IT'S QUITE SIMPLE, PEOPLE WRITE DEMOS TO IMPRESS THEIR FRIENDS, AND TO GAIN STATUS ON THE SCENE.....MOST CODERS USE THEIR OWN HOMEMADE ROUTINES....OTHERS RE-SOURCE OTHER PEOPLES ROUTINES  I.E .DAN. YOU MIGHT SAY SO WHAT ? WELL YOUR GETTING TAKEN FOR A RIDE BY HIM, HE IS LAUGHING BEHIND YOUR BACK, HE HASN'T LEARNT TO CODE THE HARD WAY, HE'S TAKEN THE EASY OPTION.
