I mention I'm working on PAC-MAN, Todd MacNaught starts on the Logo project, and Todd and Ken try to debug our NABU 1100 Development environment that uses MCP2, a version of CPM that also contains a portion of NABU IOS.

The last of the copies I have of the Grunt Presses I personally edited. There were other editions, but they are lost in time.
