To remember: Mamba #25 (Jordi)
you can’t really deny it.
the computer is a part of our real
by reading the following pages
everyone will understand, will have
to admit it though.
these lines were written by jrc in
honour of jr predator, who was known
as the funny spanish guy of the
the guy we will keep in mind…
who was jr predator ?
the last 20th december, jr predator
i’m sure that most of you have heard
his handle once before in your
computer life, others even were close
friends to him.
jordi (his real name) was one of the
few left in the scene without enemies
for him the c64 was his hobby #1,
finding most of his friends with the
help of his little & lovely c64.
who has read a party report without
his handle in there ? difficult…
most of you will remember him as the
europe mega-traveller #1. he was at
the most important parties (crazy,
dom, horizon and all the radwar
but after a little introduction about
him i’ll try to explain his whole
in 1987 jordi started his informatic
university studies in barcelona.
there was his first contact with the
computer world. then he began to get
in touch with other students with a
c64 and made the decision to stop
with his little zx 81 and so he
bought a c64.
after that he formed a local c64
group called human torches. the
members were jmj, amd, and him (jrp).
all the c64 games spread these days
were released by them, becoming the
first real elite group here in spain.
after these days they quit that group
and he made the decision to run
another group, but now with other
members from other parts of spain.
that group was called golden minds.
(formed by foxbyte and him)
after their first steps in the
cracking activities, another spanish
group appeared. those days there were
alot of independants. in that year
most of the legendary groups on the
c64 were formed. the little crews
didn’t have anything to hold against
the big ones. jordi saw that and
organized a meeting at his place with
some of the best local pirates.
the 27th of june 1988, the blasters
inc. were formed, by foxbyte, acm,
bsr, jcs, bbc and jr predator. tbi
was the first international group in
spain. the good years came with all
the spanish games released by tbi,
but the real jump to the elite scene
was managed by cracking ‘operation
thunderbolt’, by tbi.
with the time, most of the original
members went to the amiga scene, but
jordi never quit the c64.
in 1989, another spanish group
appeared, called the big ones, formed
by sparky, the fox, mad joe and me
(jrc). in that period i met jrp for
the first time. these days we thought
about joining forces and then we made
the decision to quit big ones and
in spring 1990, we started a
cooperation with our friends in the
ruling company. the leaders of both
crews (jrp and action jackson) were
close friends and it was one of the
most important reasons to start the
tbi+trc coop. it was a friendship
in spring 1991 the original members
of the big ones made the decision to
leave blasters because of internal
problems with black hole (the member
already in spring 1990 the first real
symptoms of jordi’s illness appeared.
his illness was increasing with the
pass of time. the horizon easter
party ’91 was his last international
travel. after that party his illness
went worse until his fatal end.
some months before his death, some of
his best friends knew what could
happen sooner or later. we didn’t
spread the word because we didn’t
have the right to do it.
the blasters was something more than
just a computer group in his life.
it was like a way of life.
only the people who have been a
member of the blasters will know what
the skiing was his second passion,
spending all the weekends practicing
also i can say that he was very
generous to all his friends. his home
was also the home of all his friends
and i’m sure that many of you, by
reading these lines, will remember
the inter-rail days, sleeping at his
i’m sure that he enjoyed the life as
much as he could. it was the best
decision of his life.
about his character, he had a strong
personality. all of us still remember
his shouts. these shouts were part
of him. when he lost his energy we
began to realize that something was
it just was the beginning of his end.
he shared all he owned with his
friends, like those weekends playing
poker at his home till daybreak..
jr predator was friends with all the
elite’s and never had any enemy or
war with another group.
the 20th of december at 7.00 my
telephone rang. jordi just died a
little while ago. blood cancer
stopped his heart beating and he left
the day i spread the word about his
death, i only read good things about
for once in a life-time, all the
raggings and quarrels in the scene
we understood that with him a little
part of the c64 is gone, with all
the parties, letters, conferences
and meetings. for me and some of you
it won’t be the same without him.
i felt the obligation to write these
lines. perhaps because we had alot
of things in common…
our handle’s jr predator and jrc,
or names jordi and jordi, and the
most important happening in our
lives, our c64.
i am sure that most of you want to
demonstrate your last appreciation
to him and don’t know how, just send
a letter to the following address:
i’ll give all the letters to his
whereever you stay junior, i wish
you good luck!
even rich of empire shows his
‘kinda reminds me when we called
mamasoft/ics and his mother kept
telling us ‘morte, morte, morte’.
we never understood until we saw in
a mag that mamasoft died in a car
