                That little bit of code is the basis of LOTS of random number games. Any kind of program that use random anything, uses something like that...I would start using line 10, then 20, and so on, so I could add code in between the existing. Like line 11, 23, and so on...

                    My wife started out with a Compac Portable. It looked like a portable sewing machine. It had 1 big disc drive and a tiny processor before the 8086 I think.. The screen was a small green screen probably 6" square. It was dos based operating system. I will post a pic if I can find one.

                                When I first moved back here, I wanted to get a computer for each of us, but they were ending Windows Vista(?) I think it was at the time... I had to wait a month until the new Windows 7 computers came out to buy this one and another identical one to it for my younger son...
