Interesting read. It's amazing what was achieved then with what now seems so crude. Thanks for the link!

When I was at college some time back (cough), I remember having to wait for the results of your (Fortran) program to have run at the computer center.... usually a meaningless printout as you'd missed off a comma or such like  ;D (apologies for meandering off topic)

Ahhh...the days of FORTRAN IV. One of the few fond memories of those days was playing 'Gorilla' in Basic.

RAM chip anyone?
