I knew about computers for a long time before I actually bought one for
myself, and from articles and books knew a bit of basic. One of my first
programs was a couple lines of basic I could quickly type in on the demo
computers at Radio Shack. It endlessly printed to the screen a string one
character at a time with about a 3 second delay between characters, "I am a
slow and stupid computer. ". Made a nice pattern on the screen.
