It was a noisy, confusing and funny simulation and, once everyone knew what they were doing, managed to reach a maximum clock speed of about one instruction per minute.

Micro Live focussed on computing issues with the BBC Micro, Spectrum, Olivetti and other machines. An episode from 17th October 1986.

Writing in Acorn BASIC makes me think of my one attempt at writing a simple (?) text only adventure game trying to burgle a house, and escape. All done on the good old Acorn Electron.

How many guesses do you need to know if I managed it?

without a doubt. So many different formats available. I remember going to Farnons department store in Newcastle, in January '84, to buy my first computer. They had a dozen or so different micros. set up with games running on them. A magnificent sight! Nearly bought a CGL M5, which was running a nigh on arcade perfect version of Pooyan, but I'm glad I opted for a Spectrum. Halcyon days, indeed.
