ick, I remember programming ascii christmas trees, complete with flashing "fairy light" @ signs on BBC.

They were fun, but the homework from that class, still gives me nightmares....

It is from a BBC computer it is an educational word processor called Folio it was created for primary school children although it could be used in a professional enviroment with addons and wot nots.. It was the first piece of software i got taught to use in school.. I also used to play Grannys Garden and Chucky Egg happy thanks to Snodvan i have a BBC which is getting used all the time cause im a sad geek who loves the BEEB tease

This is the computer I used at school:



a Unique Universal II. At Uni I progressed on to an ICL 1903A, programmed using Fortran with punch cards (I still have some of the cards)
