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... ;-)

    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!
