BASIC and beautiful…

As my family will attest, back in the early 1980’s, I did a lot of programming in front of my monochrome Apple ][. Regrettably I did not spend much time watching Night Rider or the Dukes of Hazzard. I say ‘regrettably’ because if I HAD spent time watching those shows, I’d at least have some retro-television-references to drop comedically in conversation.

Instead, I have a working knowledge of BASIC programming…which is a lot like saying having a working knowledge of top-loading, Betamax players.

Oh well, one thing I do get to enjoy is seeing my old friends “HTAB,””GOSUB” and “STRING$” again.

I have a strong desire to put on my Docksiders, crank up Axel F and finish the programming masterwork I left on my Verbatim 5.25″.

>sigh< Good times...
