I keep hearing about this new-fangled 'Forth' thingy, and I keep saying to
my self -- someday I'll learn it...

but I don't have it yet for any of my machines, to my knowledge.

Over on the Model 100 list, a listmember there was able to get the book
'Thinking Forth' republished in PDF format through it's author, Leo Brodie.

The link to the message in the archives (which are online now... ;-) ) is here:

Or this tinyurl thingy...

[[ As an offtopic aside -- how long are those thingies cached, anyway??? ]]

Now I just have to get a Forth interpreter/compiler for the M100...
