  • #64 ✎ 29 cujo1992 Wow - this is fascinating to read. I am among the "old bunch". I will keep my specific age obfuscated - but my experience will give you clues: - I first programmed in BASIC on a fancy Apple II computer in elementary school. It was great fun to write 10 print "something inappropriate" 20 goto 10 .... and then walk away from the computer. I then got my first home computer: An ATARI 800. I programmed lots of CRAPPY GAMES on the BASIC on that system... including a bad side scrolling game with a giant lobster. (It was really bad) In high school I programmed in PASCAL (still fond of it). The class was boring to me so I wrote a version of "Sky Diver" from the ATARI 2600 days. The teacher gave me an A and didn't make me take the final. (All of my classmates were playing the game instead of doing homework... we had 5.25in disks to pass around) In College I learned 68000 assembly code. We had an assignment to write a program to play the "pick from 23 matchsticks" game. He gave us the algorithm to implement so it was about learning/executing syntax. I added code to randomly insult the human player... which was amusing to my fraternity brothers but required a lot of explanation to my professor. (He didn't see the humor in it...) After college I dabbled in web design, PERL, JAVA... but didn't keep up with the old days. I had colleagues that coded in C/C+/C++/C# etc... but alas this was not my calling. Emails, project meetings and other real-world stuff pressed coding to the background... SMILEBASIC has allowed me to rekindle some old creativity deep in my soul. The results far exceed my expectations... imagine how cool the stupid lobster game could have been if I had grown up in a different decade. thanks for reading Posted

    I would say yes, since it is Turing Complete.
