It’s a long way from the Dragon 32 that I had when I was 8 and watching the afore mentioned cartoon. I could play chess, space invaders (not sure how the parents let the space invaders slip through but my brother and I knew better than to bring this to their attention) and write very basic Basic programmes that I then saved to tape (yes, tape).
Now – some 25 odd years later – that I have made some little cartoon type things while sitting on the sofa, with my laptop connected via wireless to a big fat broadband connection (though I could always do with faster and fatter!), having updated my tiny shiny 4GB iPod nano with more songs and radio broadcasts than I could ever reasonably get through, I am going to eat some more.
Bit of nostalgia for the festive season.
Play Line Rider. It’s fun.
