My new tablet. Almost new. It's only 33 years old.

@jirka ZX-BASIC! FUN! Enjoy. Definitely plumb the archives for some of the superb type-in-ware that got published :)
That's no ZX Basic - that's #bbcbasic! With the built-in assembler.
@EdS @jirka WOW that thing sounds sweet! Actual named functions and repeat/until? I'd be in HEAVEN back in my old Atari 8 bit days :)
Details for anybody interested:
Even better news, #bbcbasic is now free and open source:"BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 (BBCSDL) is an advanced cross-platform implementation of BBC BASIC for Windows, Linux (x86 CPU only), Mac OS-X, #RaspberryPi (Raspbian), Android and iOS."
Richard T Russell helped specify BBC Basic back in the day, wrote the #z80 version for #Acorn, then later for #Sinclair and #Amstrad, and is still maintaining it.
@EdS @feoh The BBC Basic SDL2 port looks good. Unfortunately the Raspberry Pi version does not work on an original Raspberry. 😠
@jirka @EdS Wow. Wish I'd known I just gave away 2 3's. They're SO cheap! :)
