When you look at all the fancy languages we have these days - including MMBASIC - it makes you wonder how the hell they wrote stuff back then....

Atari 2600 VCS Programming

Can you imagine having to debug a game being written for one of these 30-odd years ago.....

Way back when

We where about to make controllers from Gameboys because they had a Z80
based chip. Got all the information on how things worked when we found
a company in Germany was already doing that and had good products and
fair prices. The VC money dudes backed out didn't even want to try.

So some of the team made things like door locks, sprinkler systems
and even a few games and learning tools for the little ones.

Some where in my boxes (packed 10 years ago) are the DOS tool set.
Along with my CPM 8" disk and drives. Now I feel even older

Great times then and Great times now. All about the people who helped you
and the ones you helped.
