Computist (May 1987)

Computist (May 1987)

Computist was a rather unique magazine for the Apple II. It openly advocated circumventing copy protection and provided the means to do so. Piracy was a big deal back in the day, especially for 8-bit computer software so various disk based copy protection methods were common. While covering other technical subjects and containing some other typical computer magazine stuff like reviews, the bulk of Computist was dedicated to publishing techniques to remove or circumvent such copy protection for the stated purpose of being able to back up your software. The contents of the May 1987 issue of Computist include: Softkeys for:
  • Graphics Expander
  • Information Master
  • Certificate Maker
  • Elite
  • Catalyst
  • Temple of Apshai
  • Spell It
  • Capturing Locksmith
  • 6.0 Fastcopy
  • Computer Eyes / 2: a review
...and more!
