First Application (BASIC)

Upon visiting my friend who had windows 3 installed, there was an interesting new solitaire game called Tri-Peaks. Instantly addicted I wanted to play it on my old Tandy, but alas, the Tandy was still running just DOS. Somewhere along the way I had discovered BASIC so I took it upon myself to program Tri-Peaks solitaire in BASIC. This was the first really big program I attempted and I wish I still had the code somewhere just for laughs. I think somewhere in the process I discovered GOSUB and for the first time broke out of the LINE by LINE programming which ended up being quite useful. The graphics were incredibly basic but it worked, and I could play tripeak to my heart’s content
