3716Re: 8k Basic Easter Egg
- Mar 25, 2014Thanks Y'all!
I had begun to believe my recollection of the list of authors was one of those false memories. I had a paper tape from the 70s, and remembered the Easter Egg y'all found. I built a web-cam based paper tape reader, but when I got my version up in SIMH, I found it mentioned MICRO-SOFT, but no authors. I now have a vague memory that during the good old days, we started our project with Altair BASIC version 3.2 and upgraded to 4.0. I seem to have ended up with the 4.0 tape, but not the 3.2 version. Thanks for letting me know that my memory has not totally degenerated to mush.
