I remember in the early 80's buying a Commadore 64 and attempted a bit of programmimg. After about 5 pages of script I managed to make a simple tank thing that moved around the screen and when you tapped the space bar, it fired a shell which exploded off screen!

Recently I have been delving into the wonders of Microsoft Excel and the dark and mysterious world of the Macro. Not quite as exciting as a shell firing tank but, for me equally challenging.

Since we started our Internet Radio Station, Affinity Radio in August last year we have upgraded our broadcast software to SAM Broadcaster which suits us at present. Its got a lot of great tools, one being the ability to use PAL, yes its more programming! PAL stands for "Play list Automation Language" and its great. Have you ever listened to the FM stations like Heart, Magic, Capitol Gold etc, they all use this. Well this then takes us on a circular route back to those heady days in 1983!!! Funnily enough we have an 80's music show on Friday evenings from 8 till 11 pm UK time, so you can check out the fruits of my PAL wizardry, well maybe, maybe not.Keep on Rockin'
