Thanks for the very interesting telephone conversation Sunday.
Since I purchased my Apple I in June of this year, I have
had very little contact with other computer hobbyists. The
nearest Computer Club is 60 miles from here, and to the best
of my knowledge there are no other hobbyists in this area.
So any contact I can make with other computer nuts will be
a big improvement.
My interests are mainly in programming and hardware at this time.
I am convinced that the 6502 CPU is a powerful processor that
I only partially appreciate, since I am ignorant of its full
capabilities. I have spent most of the last six months trying
basic programs and dabbling in some machine-language instruc-
tions, and am willing to share what information I have gained
with everyone in order to improve my own system.
I am enclosing a listing of a Tic-tac-toe game that I developed
to run in the Apple I. Also, I am sending you an article for
a newsletter that I wrote last night. Use these as you wish,
and if you would rather have tapes than listings, let me know.
I have several games I have developed to run in my Apple I that
I'll let you have.
If you have any programs, tapes, listings or information on
the Apple I, I want it! Let me know how much money, what you
have, what you need, etc., and I will send a money order back.
Be sure to let me know if I can help get this Owners Club off
the ground. I'll be glad to type articles (although my typing
leaves much to be desired), make mailings, or do the printing
(I have a spirit duplicator) if needed.
Seasons greetings to you and your family. I'll look forward to
hearing from you.
