Group History

D-Tect was a demo group based in Germany, probably born around early 1988.

1990 
November was a busy month, with first the release of "Depeche Code" [11/90] followed closely by the second issue of "Hack-Mag" [11/90]. The mag announced that the group needed more coders, since only Agent and McDeal were coding. It also announced two new members, Mr.Megaforce in Canada (about to open a board) and their first modemtrader, Rockford in Germany.
1992 
German writer Yankee joined from Addonic around january, to work on Hack Mag. December saw the release of the group's last ever production, the intro "D-Cadence" [12/92] at The Party. It seems reasonable to say the group died early 1993.
  • Leo left the scene.
  • Wire 501 was kicked.
  • One of D-Tect's greates assets in earlier times and the ex-editor of 'Hack Mag', McDeal (11/90-) left to join German supergroup Sanity. However, he only participated in one demo for Sanity ("Arte") before leaving the scene.
  • German sysop Rockford aka RCF ('TRADERS HEAVEN', 02-09/91) joined Elevation.
  • Norwegian sysop Phonebilly ('ELEGANT MACHINERY') joined Dual Crew (RAW1).
  • Lord Unix was kicked (09/91).
  • News in I.C.E that Spider joined Coma is untrue (09/91).
