Hmm, I programmed a graphics program in BASIC for my computer class on our state of the art IBM PET computer. We had 12 computers hooked up to one outlet next to the door, one dot matrix printer (track feed) with a mega switch box, and one cassette tape backup/storage device. We provided our own cassettes and saving took forever. If anyone bumped the extension cord as they walked through the door, we were toast--and so was HE!
I lost my entire project the week it was due because someone was playing around next to that plug (The outlet was at the light switch--half way up the wall). I was saving at the time and could not retrieve it. I got a C for my final (the project) only because everyone else vouched for my project.
