        The first program I did after I got my Timex-Sinclair 1000 in
'82 was the same thing. I don't recall any longer where I got the
basic program, but it didn't have a second hand so I spent a while
keying it in and then 3-4 more hours trying to add the second hand to
it. Unfortunately, I inadvertently wiggled the machine before I was
finished and lost it all. My first program that I wrote on any
machine was an attempt at solving an Algebra problem that the text
books said was unsolvable. This was done on a TRS-80 Model III.
