@dejus I remember trying to judge if a program would be “worth” the effort of typing it it. Anything too short you would assume isn’t a good game, but anything too long and it was too boring to type it in. And latter-day listings seemed to be filled with interminable machine code bytes. Bah!
But now I appreciate it much more. It’s a soothing/rewarding exercise in it’s own right.
