I'm glad I could entertain you with lander... It's very addicting. But the first time you land it perfectly it's very satisfying. One of these days I need to hook up an amplifier at the museum to the Cassette Out. It becomes even more entertaining with the audio stuff I added.

They stopped in briefly in the homebrew room where I was at the Apple I reproduction. So I explained them about that. At first one visitor asked if the Apple I replicate was DOS, after which I explained that this was 5 years before MS-DOS.

My hope is that I can take the MARCH PET to Bill Degnanâs workshop and at least figure out what the problem is. At most I would hope to get help from others to fix what is wrong. I will see if any of my PETs match the MARCH one and bring that along to have a comparison.

I was determined to beat this simple game ! Alas I got down to 5 ft/sec, and I still failed. Everyone said that this was a really tough game, and they were right !
