At the end of the 1980s, a group of four females in Europe with the moniker TBB, or The Beautiful Blondes, became known in the Computer Underground for their technical skills. The TBB specialized in the Commodore 64 and went by the pseudonyms BBR, BBL, BBD, and TBB. Many hackers think it odd that programmers BBR and TBB both died in 1993—not even reaching the age of 20.
