>His work / findings always make for an interesting read

Good to see 4AM's work supported in AppleII softlist hash file. There were a couple recent entries of work he did in which a specific hack was needed in order for the disk image to work within an virtual/emulated environment. It may have been the astronomy program Telestar II because that required a diskette to be in the floppy drive in order to look up stuff iirc.....something along that line iirc.

It is too bad with companies/developers creating a protection method 20 to 30 years ago for a product at the time and that protection is so bullet-proof that it eventually sabotages things in case the company wanted to market a re-release of the software program.
