I always found the Giants slogan 'Giants - We Are Huge' to be rather amusing... News way back in Generation #6 claiming all members had joined Interactive in Germany are probably untrue...except if they all moved to Germany and joined up :) Hawk and one other coder (real name Fredrik Schultz) are the authors of the NES emulator A/NES. Some news said that NEO Norway joined. Any info on who this involves? Their old homepage, http://hem.passagen.se/giants/giants.html, appears to have gone down.
- Crusader released his second ascii colly "Seven Wayz" in August.
- The Swedish twins Candyman and Crusader (doublememb Epsilon Design) both joined Session in June. A 4k intro was their only competition entry at The Party 96, but they also released the first issue of their chartmag "NightTrain" at this party.
- ROM #9 reported that Wizard had stepped down as main organizer, and handed the job over to Hawk. The coder, graphician and musician (04/96-) joined Digital Corruption later in the year.
- Coder Sublet joined Planet Jazz 97.
- Norwegian raytracer and swapper Thrym (09/96) terminated his membership to be in Massive only 97.
- After a big cleanup in 97, Bon (nor R. Nyheim, org swap pack, 12/96), Malakai, Fugazi (swe Robin Forsberg, swap, ex Beatless, new late95), Dwangi (Christian Johansson, swe swap, late 96), Groover, Tyneo (nor gfx), Sway and D-Coy (swe org music) were all asked to leave the group. The reason was inactivity, and failing to keep in touch with the rest of the group.
- Elusive (ex Yodel) left to help form New Age a few days before Remedy 95.
- Numen and Speed Devil left for X 06/96.
- Norwegian Crack left the scene 06/96.
