[LINK] Aust. Personal Computer Nov 1981

One of the bits of history that travels with me from house to house, but
rarely gets unpacked from its box, is a particular copy of 80-Micro
magazine. It's got the first "ski run"-style arcade game I remember seeing -
the game won a competition for "best game that can be written in a single
line of Basic". It fitted in 255 bytes. They don't program like >that< any

I had that Forth. A wonderful extensible language. Reverse Polish
Notation running off a stack like HP calculators came natural to it.
Might still have the cassette tape it came on somewhere. I've still
got the TRS-80 which I bought in 1978.
I've also still got a lot of magazines from that era. Why remembers
"Byte","Kilobaud" and "TRS-80 Computing"?
