So I decided to fire up the ADAM today and check out SmartBASIC. After throwing in the digital data pack and pulling the reset key, I was presented with this screen:
I have multiple SmartBASIC cassettes which explains why I haven’t seen this before; I simply haven’t ever loaded this until now. Anyway, I type in “1234” and was presented with this:
Then I tried to see the contents using the GET option in SmartWriter. Here are the files on the tape.
Sadly, for whatever reason, when I tried to boot the tape by pulling reset, the tape wheels would spin but ultimately brough me back to SmartWriter.. I don’t know the reason. However, I can still access the program(s) by first loading SmartBASIC from another tape, then loading the “HELLO” program. More on this later. Oh and who is Mr. Dolan?
