Cool story.

 

I really liked that magazine, which changed its name to Computer Fun due to the video game crash, then unceremoniously disappeared. I recall buying that same issue back in the day, although I didn't have Extended BASIC for my TI. Now that I'm learning it, I find it to be a shame that they didn't include this language with the console itself. It's really amazing how much more is possible with XB.

Nice story. Very nice magazine and bought probably half a dozen back then.
