- ASCII Star Wars Portraits & Other Weirdness From BASIC-Era Computer Magazines
Bill Klumpp from G+ says, “I used to have this specific issue. Unfortunately, it and the old copies of Computer Shopper from the ’80’s (some of which were up to 800 pages +) were destroyed when the roof sprung a leak at the parents house in Florida because the apartment where the ex and I were living in at the time didn’t have room for me to store them. A lot of those old computer magazines were fun reads, especially when they tried to compare all the old computers you could buy or build from companies such as Commodore, Radio Shack, Texas Instruments, Sega, ActiVision, and other computer makers who have faded into the sands of time, along with the parts for building your own IBM PC-XT and AT.”
