there were shitloads of such lists circulating in the 1990s - last not least because quizzes about group abbreviations were part of when you applied for an account at a "leet" bbs.

see here for some of these lists: https://files.scene.org/browse/resources/docs/acronym_lists/

From my friend-os:
ATL = Atlantis
MSL = MultiStyle Labs
PRX = Proxima

Also, I've always enjoyed how 3AD is short for Triad.



PRX = Parallax ... well I guess as Parallax is buried you can have it anyway :)

The issue was those "leet" lists was they were always some groups missing.

I did my own c64/Amiga list back almost 30 yrs ago, completing it every time I saw a new crackintro. The list was, iIrc, about 30kb without any "fancy" ascii logos to boast about.

Somehow measuring havoc in centimeters makes him a lot smaller than he is in my mind :)

and imagine that havoc is small in comparison to the Dutch twin towers (jal/nostalgia and lone ranger/acme) who always walk together at demoparties :D
