The Bean and I had a conversation on Monday evening about computers and networks and programming, the result of which was that he jumped out of bed and started designing a game.
I spent all day in London yesterday, gone before he got up and back after he'd gone to bed, but apparently he talked of little else. This morning he claims to have woken at half past five, because he couldn't stop thinking about his game. "Can I put it on a CD?" he asked, as I bleared my way downstairs.
I started with a quick multiplication table1:
10 print "Hello" 20 for i = 1 to 5 30 for j = 1 to 5 40 print i; " x "; j; " = "; i*j 50 next j 55 print "========" 60 next i
10 print "Hello" 20 for i = 2 to 1000 30 for j = 1 to 100 40 print i; " - "; j; " = "; i+j 50 next j 55 print "========" 60 next i
Mind you, better than
10 print "tosser"
20 goto 10
which we were apt to see in electrical retailers during the 80s.
In my day we had to know how a floppy disk worked before we were allowed near the RM 380z, and you just try telling that to the kids of today etc. ;)
print i; " + "; j; " = "; i+jand was mid-way through changing it to minus when I interrupted and made him come for his breakfast.
