Computer humour from the 90's
« on: 19:31, 02 April 19 »
This video shows a text file downloaded from a Bulletin Board (probably Aspects B.B.) in about 1994. The next video, in about two weeks, will look at some of the graphic display files from the Scull PD library, including I think, a version of the Amiga bouncing ball demo.

I've never had an Amiga, but a discussion came up about the Demo several years ago in a Hisoft Pascal thread, which lead me to believe that this was an Amstrad recreation of an Amiga Screensaver I presume.

Yes, I think there were two or more CPC versions and the correct name is the "Boing Demo". Like I say I will list the program first to see if you or anyone else recognises the BASIC file or if there are any useful REM statements.

Cheers,

Peter

Guaranteed to offend someone, somewhere.
Two more "humorous" text files from Aspects Bulletin Board. Not computer related but I thought it best to keep them in this thread.
