So is My Son
1 Week before my son was born in November 1982 I purchased one of these.
I had to travel all the way to London from Weymouth on the train as there were no stockists anywhere near Dorset.
I started by religiously typing in program listings from magazines, I soon learnt debugging!
All those syntax errors...
When my wife returned home 1 week later I thought I would impress her with "Press the space bar dear".
It ran a simple program that looped "Welcome Home" in random (blocky) colours. "Oh is that all it does" says she :-(
I went on to write a number of games that I sold via the user Mags.
Suffice to say I still have my Dragon Computer the wifely Dragon is no more.
I am now thinking about retiring from my job in computing and digging the Dragon out of the loft to get back to some Basic coding....
Ahhh, those were the days.
