Is it necessary to book this in advance, or can we just rock up on the weekend? I live within walking distance, but I'm somewhat at the mercy of other factors. As Ian posted - if want to have table space - yes booking is needed. If you'd just like to pop along for an hour or two without table space...

Re: Abasic2/3 and SBasic2/3

I'm curious to find out how closely these versions of Acorn BASIC resemble BBC BASIC. I'm sure I've read recently (on *.) that BBC BASIC was likely developed on a System - which makes sense. Is SBASIC aka "Super BASIC" and does it have some BBC BASIC key words like PROC? Or is it closer in lineage t...
