RE: Looking for Commodore tracking sw



I remember the Mits Altair 8800 kit!  Mine cost me $850, it had a whopping
1K (1024 bytes) of static RAM.  I upgraded it to 12K dynamic for another
$299.  It ran Microsoft BASIC that loaded from cassette, 10 minutes.  I
later bought the Quest Cosmac Elf 1802 with a whopping 256 bytes (1/4K) ram
and upgraded it to 4K static.  Those were the days.
