Retrochallenge Winter Warmup 2014

I have once again decided to enter the Retrochallenge!

I recently acquired a working Sharp PC-1500 pocket computer, complete with printer dock, cassette cables, and startup guide for $8 at a thrift store. Eight bloody dollars, when I’ve been outbid at $60 several times on eBay for the same bit of kit!

This year’s entry will involve my coming to grips with the PC-1500’s version of BASIC, and trying my hand at programming a few random things.

If I can find my old Radio Shack CCR-81 Computer Cassette Recorder, I may even be able to SAVE my programs! Needless to say, that will be priority number one.
