Bye, Robot Page 6

10 PRINT “i am ace” 20 GOTO 10?

Part of the inspiration for this part of the story was one of my friends ranting about the current state of video games, and how lazy programming had led to the reliance on users continually upgrading their hardware, rather than in the days of the Spectrum, when this wasn?t an option, and games developers were forced to push the existing hardware to its absolute limits. Come to think of it that doesn?t really come across in the story, and to be honest I doubt if the inventor and entrepreneur Clive Sinclair ? even the cartoony, not-really-him version of him presented here would have really cared about the state of video games. But everyone of my generation certainly did, so there it is.
