In going through my Dad's old stuff today, I came across a cassette tape that could have only been made by me.  I vaguely remember taking copies of programs to him on cassette, because I still did not have a P-Box like him, but the fact that I never got the tape back leads me to believe this was around 1985 when I got my own P-Box.

 

Anyway, it's a neat coincidence since I've been playing with my program recorder the past couple of weeks, so I'm already setup to see whats on it.  I'm almost afraid to look, because back around 1985 my programming was kinda sloppy.

 

It's kinda neat that he kept this cassette all these decades.

Okay, apparently it's lame little program written by me that was meant to be saved as DSK1.LOAD

From the looks and simplicity of it, it was just a simple menu loader for his financial and banking related programs.

 

Either this was before our knowledge of BOOT! or he needed something really small to fit on a SSSD diskette with his other programs.

 

Here's this listing, please don't laugh too hard...

Shame you don't have the other programs that accompany the loader.

No kidding!  So many USEFUL things were lost when we Dad and I both got out of the TI.  :sad:

 

I've often thought that a thread for USEFUL old Extended BASIC programs like those would be cool.  Sadly I don't have the time right now to find programs or maintain such a thread.
