On May 1st, I got an itch to play with SmartBASIC on my ADAM and found that the digital data pack was… altered. As I explain last month, the DDP didn’t launch SmartBASIC. It launched a custom-made program that required a password.
I wanted to know what was on that DDP so I used SmartWriter to access the files. I eventually found the password after loading the files on SmartWriter.
