OK, now here’s a true curiosity.
Back in the bad old days when Llamasoft was still affiliated with Richard Paul Jones (who went on to start Interceptor Micro’s after the split with Llamasoft), his squeaky dad ran a video shop, and RPJ decided he was going to get rich quick by selling “video titling systems” to video shop owners – which would consist of a Vic-20 and a poxy little 3.5k program he had me write to generate colour bars.
Of course that was a rubbish idea and it never got anywhere.
However here is the poxy little 3.5K program! 😀
