UK CPC group established circa 1989 by Hangman. STS, for Secretsoft Technical Services, was a general CPC coding and cracking group rather than specifically a demo-group. Several of the most well-known members of the early 1990s UK Amstrad scene took part in STS. STS's slogan was "STS - it's a load of old w-nk", complete with accompanying theme tune which could occasionally be heard in issues of BTL.
Among STS's members have been the following:
- The Architect
- Wild Thang
- Barney Rubble
- The Equalizor (also a member of the Lords of Justice)
- Doctor Fegg (also a member of the Lords of Justice)
- Wulf (also a member of the Lords of Justice)
STS's 'spin-off' group of less ethical members was occasionally known as the Lords of Justice.
Several commercial programs were released under the STS Software banner. These included Soft-Lok, a Speedlock transfer utility.
STS also released PD programs such as Lockcopy-85 and Lockcopy-88, and a small number of demos and intros.
