Trix / The Supply Team,

Tell us something about yourself.
My name is Linda Kjaersgaard. I’m 35 years young and I was born on the Danish island Fyn on the 13th of November 1969. I now live in Videbaek, Jylland. I used to have a fucking lame job where all I did every day was to make cheese. Now I’m back in school trying to get an education as graphic designer. Hopefully I will succeed! :-)
What handle(s) did you use and how did you come up with it/them?
What group(s) were you in?
I was the secretary in The Supply Team. I was the only professional stamp licker in the world and also the only secretary who didn’t make coffee. Later I joined Shield, at least I think I did. I never really heard anything from them except from a letter or two.
What roles have you fulfilled?
How long were you active for?
Tell us about those years and how you got into the scene in the first place.
Oooooh, it was the funniest time of my life!!!! We had so much fun all the time. Fooling around, making demos, drinking beers, smoking, watching TV, being at war with particularly Danish Gold and other members of TST. (When they left TST there was a war until they returned. Then we were as tight as before they left.:-))
How I got into it? One of my friends called Frany was a member of TST. One day he invited me to the beach with some of the other guys from TST, and that’s pretty much how I got into this crazy world that I loved so much. We had a lot of beers on the beach that day. I don’t know how many beers TSN had brought, but it was a lot!!!! ;-)
After that day I was always at TSN’s house and if I told you that his room was crowded I’d be telling you the truth. Normally we would be seven, eight persons in his little room, sometimes more. When The Softeaters from Germany became members of TST, it got even more crowded!!!! I was always sitting on TSN’s bed next to TSN (Shit! I just remembered I broke TSN’s bed two times. Not because I’m a fat person but because Sting appeared on TV in a movie. Sorry Torben!!!). What can I say??? I miss every one of those guys. It’s sad that we don’t see each other anymore because what we had together in TSN’s room was very special. I would surely like to turn back the clock and do it all over again. I miss them very much!
Describe a typical day for you in front of the computer.
Hmmm... We would all go to TSN’s house in the afternoon to watch all the new stuff that he had received that day. Then we (TSN and Trix) would start copying games and demos for other people/members. We would drive to the post office to send games and pick up money for games we’d already sold. After that, it was time for dinner. In the evening, we would all return to TSN’s house to smoke, make demos, drink Coke, laugh, and watch TV or a movie. We all went home very late every night!!!
Did you personally invent any special techniques or tools to make things easier for you?
When you look at what you did back then, what are you most proud of?
That I was a member of such a great team!
Who were your heroes on the scene and why?
The rest of TST. Great guys!
What, for you, was the coolest thing ever invented on the C64?
Kaze’s scroll!! It was amazing! So much brain in such a young man. He was really talented.
Did you go to any copy-parties, meetings or tradeshows?
Yes, a couple of times. Beers, beers, beers!!!!!!! Funny!
In your opinion, what was the scene all about?
What were the particular highlights for you?
No Limits by Kaze and my own demo made by TSN. :-)
Any cool stories to share with us?
Hehehe!!!! My sex life??????? No! I have so many cool stories, and I could write forever but I don’t know where to begin.
Are you still in contact with any old C64 people today?
No I have tried to localise some of them but without luck. :-( I don’t think they want me to find them!!????
When did you get your C64 and do you still have it lying around somewhere?
1987 and no, I don’t have it anymore. There are only some floppies somewhere.
Was the C64 really as special as we like to think it was?
Yes!!!!!!! I would never have met all the funny people if it wasn’t for the mighty C64. Not just the guys in TST but people around the world.
When can we expect to see some new C64 output from you? :)
Never. I can’t do anything on a C64... Sorry!
Do you have a message for your old contacts and/or anyone reading this?
If you know me from the happy days in TST, drop me a mail!!!! Maybe I will remember you and write back!! ;-) firstname.lastname@example.org is the address.
