Having some thunks recently, why I'm into what I'm into. It all goes down to BigTrak! ( the 70's programmable Robot from MB Electronics or that White Tank that my brother ripped the electronics out of. ) This was my first foray into programming and using digital computers to make stories or "BigTrak goes on rampage through Pillow Valley I, II and III." as I remember them.
All hail BigTrak - please come back, the pop kids need to learn LOGO...
