Memory Lane: 1978 Computer Games

Here's a flashback to the time when those who were up-to-date wore polyester leisure suits.  More specifically, this is from the January, 1978 issue of STARLOG, which means it's cover-dated the month and year some crazy lady was injudicious enough to marry me.

Without further hairdo, here are the pages from STARLOG #11:




About a year after this article appeared, we bought our first home computer, a Commodore 64.  We got it from Montgomery Wards.  It came with a 1541 floppy disc drive and an mps-801 dot matrix printer.  I believe the whole she-bang cost almost $1200, on our Wards charge card.

[Make typical sarcastic comments about processing speed and Moore's Law here.]

See you Thursday.
