Bad TV Reception with Rolling
Here is an updated bad tv reception that has some rolling to it.

Since it has an image, I have attached the source code and the image in a *.ZIP file.

Here is a screenshot:

Cool. Looks like the television we used to have when we were kids... except for the colour...

RE: Bad TV Reception with Rolling
Johnno56,

We had those black & white cathode ray tube television sets back in the day as well, and I always found bad reception entertaining. Yes, I am one of those that gets fascinated with weird things like that. Back years ago when I had a Lazer, Apple ][c compatible machine, I spend a week during the summer of 89 (I think) writing a new floppy-drive file system for it in pure machine language. Back then, I didn't know what a compiler was and had to enter all machine code as hexidecimal values. I had to write the code on paper, convert the code manually, and then enter the numerical data (yes I call hexidecimal digits numbers even though it uses some letters).

While I was creating the part that step the floppy drive motor from track to track (well, I had to tell it to move the motor head a specific distance for each step), I first made the head move all the way out, then all the way in, and repeated the process over and over. I watched it for hours and hours moving back and forth, not because I was bored or mesmerized, but because I was excited at my simple accomplishment. I was also contemplating new things to try when I got back to work on the new file system, and I am glad I took that time to think. I was able to successfully double the amount of disk space usage. I read in the Apple ][ manuals I bought from Apple that they used less data to make sure there was not ever the possibility of to streams (tracks) of data would affect each other.

My system worked on 10 floppy disks and I was estatic.

Anyway, I got it to work in less than a week, of course with the help of the books I bought, and I was fulfilled with the pleasures of my knowledge and experiences.

That is why I love sharing my work here on this forum, as I had on other sites, as I hope that one day someone will find excitement with the knowledge I shared with them. That is why I tell people to take my work and use it freely in their projects. Take, learn, have fun, and get fulfilled with your accomplishments.
