SmartBASIC boxing program. Spoiler: it’s a joke.

You may have noticed a lack of posts lately.  There’s plenty to write about the short-lived Coleco ADAM computer, so writer’s block is not the issue.  It’s a lack of time and energy that is the problem:  I am back in the boxing gym, hoping for another go around in the sport.  Maybe a few more amateur fights.  One professional bout.  We’ll see.  Been back in the gym since March.  Slow way back since I haven’t fought in 8 years.

I found the time to write a post and thought to make it boxing related.  So I loaded the Virtual ADAM on my PC and started writing a boxing trivia game through SmartBASIC.  After I finished the first question, I realized this would be pointless unless you could guarantee that the person playing didn’t input the code themselves.  I quit writing the code after the realization the person playing would see the answers as they entered the program into BASIC.


At least you know I’m still around 😉


About Coleco ADAM

I’m Justin M. Salvato, a fan and collector of vintage computers. This blog is dedicated to the very first computer I have ever owned: The Coleco ADAM. It is also my favorite. The goal of the blog is to provide information about the ADAM as well as the software and hardware that were created for this vintage computer system.
