    Confessions of a...mind

    Seeing as it's programmers day, and I've been thinking about this crew a lot for some reason; a shout out to the Beagle Bros. crew!

    Picture a wee lad hunched in front of his IIe bathed in the glow of his monochrome monitor, marvelling at his 64K (actually 128K, I had a RAM card, I was THE man, LOL) of raw memory power, pouring over yet another creation from the Beagle crew.

    Now imagine what was going through his head.

    That's not even physically possible I thought, yet I'm looking at it.
    What manner of witchcraft...
    These guys obviously made a pact with the devil, only the devil could do the impossible...in like 30Kb of BASIC no less.
    And these guys are so damn cool. So geeky. So cool.

    I think it was the Jiffy markers that came before I upgraded to glue!
