It wasn't that many years ago that I got rid of the last of my core
memory. I don't have any punch cards left, but I do have some paper
tape left. Programs written in Basic. Maybe one of these days I will
interface my optical paper tape reader and read them in. It would be
interesting to see if they will run on the versions of Basic
available for Linux.
