RemarksPeter Gough: "I wrote it using a Tatung Einstein linked by RS232 to a spectrum in my bedroom and went without sleep for two days to make the deadline and an early completion bonus. My parents turned off the heating at night and rather than freeze, I sat in a sleeping bag at my desk. The 0247 on the launch ship was the PIN for my cash card at the bank! Some of the pilots names were kids in my street!"
