YDKF Episode 127: BASIC Programming

Posted by robohara | Posted in YDKF | Posted on 03-11-2013


Episode 127 of You Don’t Know Flack is all about BASIC programming. In this week’s podcast I talk about some of the BASIC programs I write as a kid along with some of my current Visual Basic and vbscript projects. During the show’s (30 minute, sorry) intro I answer an e-mail about the state of my current arcade collection and a voice message about Satan’s Hollow from Satan himself.

Looking at the image, that looks like Atari 8-bit BASIC source code with a C64 on top.


+1,000 for noticing that. :)

Its the memory locations for the Atari Vertical Blank vector and the page 6 memory location poked into the vector that gave it away.

Going to watch The Gate and listen to some Killer Dwarfs now.
