I bought a Spectrum to introduce my sons to computers, and myself of course, so we learned the 'new' languages together.

I remember typing in a flight simulator game from a computer magazine...it took about a week...and successfully took off and landed...even although I have never been in a real plane...the paying passengers might have 'had kittens', the way I piloted the virtual aircraft ;o]
