    Re: Your first BASIC computer? Has your software survived?

    Well, I don't have any code or pictures, but my first BASIC computer was the Altair 8800 in 1974. I built it from a kit, and had to wait for a compiler to become available (on cassette tape no less). I started with FORTRAN and assembler on PDP-11 (PDP-8?) and IBM-1130. Ahh, those were the days...

    Of course you have images, we all have images, the internet is your friend.



    And the Fortran? sorry that's for another thread. It is the BASIC we care about.

    Starting in middle school (grades 6-8) I had a TI-89 calculator, so learned TI-BASIC. I spent so much time writing programs to do the work for me that I could have just studied normally and learn everything in half the time lol. Eventually started learning a little Motorola 68K assembler to modify the super advanced programs written for the calc in that language (full grayscale games like bomberman and mario, turning the 2.5mm data jack into a headphone jack for music, chess with amazing graphics and really strong vs. computer play... real cool stuff for a middle schooler with a calculator).

    Photo or it didn't happen...

    Optionbase1 mentioned earlier the Ti85 graphing calculator from 1992 with a similar CPU to my first ZX80 computer in 1979.
