I'd like to learn more about programming, esp for my 6800.  It'd be fun to test its limits and see what uses I can find for the graphics board I got. I just don't understand how they programmed the thing. All the hex stuff throws me off.  :)

To me, getting old computers up and running, or programming on them *is*
the game as far as I am concerned.  More fun than most packaged software
games.  I have made my own games, and I certainly play computer games, but
that's not why I am interested in vintage computing.

I just spent a few hours tonight attempting to network my NeXTstation color
computer and get to the post of accessing the forum so I could
post a message on there.  Just for fun, using ancient dawn of the WWW
technology.    Feels like a game to me, there is no practical purpose to
doing this other than enjoyment.

My point is for those of us who pooh pooh vintage gamers not to take
themselves too seriously.  We're all just playing games if you ask me.
