  Good score on the RX11!

  I bought one of those new when I was in high school. I should still have the
documentation...*somewhere*. It was at least eight moves ago for me. But I do
remember having seen the docs in a pile of books about a year ago, so I guess
I'll start digging!

  The dialect of BASIC is somewhat limited, but it is functional and useful for
simple tasks.
