    • 1992, "Mats Anders Knip", Phenomena egos?? (on Internet newsgroup alt.sys.amiga.demos)
      His music is as mainstream as it could ever be (listen to Bruno - now that's a musician!) and his poor ego really shone through in the scrolltexts in "crystal sym.".
    • 1994, "PB_email", PB Online <106> (on Internet newsgroup alt.cyberpunk.movement)
      For scrolltexts, real classic to start with is "Why didn't you greet us then?", which you can always follow up with "Are you lot too good to be seen greeting us?".
    • 2001, "Tijs van Bakel", Interactivity in demos (Was: Next generation Demosystems) (on newsgroup comp.sys.ibm.pc.demos)
      There were *many* C=64 demos in which one could control the speed of the scrolltext using the joystick, which I think is a great feature, especially if the author of the scrolltext had nothing to say.
