            You might have to get a Gotek or something so you can get some software on there.

                I had one in the mid-80s. It was one of the first computers to have a 3.5" floppy drive and it ran CP/M OS. Apart from what you type in from magazines, there were a few games for it. There was a lode runner clone and a pacman game and a dungeoncrawler adventure game with fairly crude graphics.
                We sold it so we could buy a PC XT clone which was the next evolutionary upgrade.

                      Hmmm, I remember Sunny Boys were 5c and ZooperDoopers were 3c or 2 for 5c !

                      Then again if you chose wisely you could get 2 lollies for 1c and the lady with the smoke on one hand would dish them out of the box a few at a time without gloves or tongs and into a white paper bag. At times I think there was more ash in the bag than lolly.

                      OK, next old person up for a story

                            Remember a 20cent bag of mixed lollies was maybe 1/3 full bag but 50 cents worth and they couldn't close the lollie bag.
