:lol: I still don't miss typing in code for 8 hours creating a game that sucked ass, then saving it onto a cassette! which took 8 minutes to save and or load, then when you go back the next day to try the game once more thinking it can't be all that bad after that much time put into it, only to find it harsed up and didn't save. Fuck that.
