Episode 128: Commodore 128

For Episode 128 of You Don’t Know Flack it seemed fitting to talk about the Commodore 128, even though I didn’t personally own one back in the day. This episode also includes 20 minutes of rambling after I had driven 800 miles in a day so, lucky you.

Episode 127: BASIC Programming

Episode 127 of You Don’t Know Flack is all about BASIC programming. In this week’s podcast I talk about some of the BASIC programs I write as a kid along with some of my current Visual Basic and vbscript projects. During the show’s (30 minute, sorry) intro I answer an e-mail about the state of my current arcade collection and a voice message about Satan’s Hollow from Satan himself.
