That's pretty nice as a type-in, I bet I'd have been happy if I had typed it back in the day...

Yea for a type-in it's very good and importantly, fun!
Incidentally CampurSoft released Sean's package "The BASIC Idea"  a year later in 94.

I was certainly happy when I typed it in all those years ago! :)
