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.

Don't you mean the Amstrad Bouncing Ball Demo from AA10:D
* Using some of the hardly used Amstrad compilers :D
* I use Firmware in my Assembly code :P
* Have interpreted some BASIC 1.1 programs for BASIC 1.0. :)

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
