"You are obviously not a computer programmer. "
Actually in 1985 I designed and wrote the program for an Ocean/Quick Silver
48K Spectrum Computer game called Captain Kelly
I got paid £70 for the complete rights by a company called Lotharian
who sold it on. (still have the letter/contract).
Just googled it - found this:
(What sad sod posted that - a Speccy loading screen)
So I suppose in a way I could say I am a computer programmer.
I wrote a computer program and got paid for it.
Kelly by the way is my daughters name. Hence the name of the game.
She was born in 1979. which is why , by pure chance not design,
when my grade hit 1979 I stopped playing here. (now ungraded only).
....I'm a big softie really...
Kelly tops them all - even Capablanca.
She was actually born in the Edinburgh Chess Club the home of the Scotch Gambit.
Born in a Chess Club.
What a title that would have been for a collection of best games.
She can play, not too bad actually, but I persuaded her not to take it too seriously.
I did not want her meeting and marrying one of you frigging chess freaks.
Even worse, she might have met a nut like me.😕
Still reckon if that lad starts counting now he will be finished by Christmas.
