Masters V Bunnings

Came to a realisation - you have 2 stores with much the same area. One of them has space taken up with whitegoods and the like. One does not.

So if it’s actual hardware you need, it will likely be at Bunnings. Masters? Maybe, maybe not.

Here’s a blast from the past: When I was 14, I wrote a game for my Tandy TRS-80 Color Computer II (Or CoCo for short) (Or Trash-80, if you prefer!)

I managed to find a copy of the magazine on Ebay recently, and so here it is in all its glory: Scans from the February 1985 edition of Australia CoCo magazine.

For those not old enough to remember, before the age of DVDs, and even before floppy disks were in common use, computer magazines printed listings of programs that you had to type in yourself and then save to a tape.

The monster I wrote this on had 16 kilobytes of RAM, no internal hard drive, a 320x240 pixel display and 8 colours.

I can’t think of any computerised device available today that has smaller specs. A $10 calculator perhaps?
