Raising my hand! me too me too!. Though not as often as I used to do, I
still churn away using Basic in the Color Computer family (which includes
the MC-10), the TRS-80 Model III and the trusty Model 200. Every chance I
get to buy or get a book related to Basic programing I will take it, just
bought one geared for kids and when I finish up entering a couple of the
listings I am sure my 6 year old son will be hooked.
Basic -> Briskly Achieve Solutions Impossible in C
Heck, I even downloaded from some obscure Microsoft page a package called
"Tools for old MSDOS" or something like that, in order to get Quick Basic
onto my Intel laptop... just to satisfy those midnight cravings to whip up a
quick Basic routine to check on something. My CoCo setup is still far away
from me and it won't be for at least 3 months when I'll have a chance to set
it up for the location. Sigh.
