On the other hand you might discover you could actually program. I
recently dug out my Jupiter Ace (like ZX81 but in Forth) and a Sharp
MZ-80K and looked at old programs I'd written. The scary thing was
they were pretty good, some neat stuff in there (I was about 13 at the
time). A stark contrast to the dull shite I produce these days.
