Would have to be something for the Commodore VIC-20. More like in storage (in a closet) than on my shelf, but no, I haven't got rid of it. (Dragons are, by nature, hoarders. ;-))

HTH,

    Come to think it, mine would also be related to Commodore as well, but would be about the C64 instead. Still have a lot of magazines with basic and assembly language code snippets. And the things people are still using that machine for....

      Indeed!

      Sadly I lost many old Byte, Compute, etc. magazines when the lower levels of my cavern flooded...

      I bet you remember typing in lines and lines of numbers with checksums from Compute! books that represented machine-language programs fed to a special loader coded in BASIC... ;-)

      HTH,

        Yeah, LOL! I remember spending literally HOURS typing line after line of numbers not knowing what they all meant. Found out after reaching college and my first real job afterwards. I tried getting back into that a few years ago, but life is too busy with other interests. Oh, those good old days!
