Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Or come and get involved on our social media channels ...

From the preface:

'The purpose of this book is to explore the computer's special abilities to produce graphic displays.  The book is geared toward one microcomputer, the Radio Shack TRS-80, and one computer language, BASIC.  However, due to the generalized nature of the discussion, we feel that the techniques employed in the many sample programs can be adapted to other hardware and other languages.'
