I think that's a great idea.  I used to love tinkering around with  
Basic on the Amstrad CPC (and Amstrad Logo too on CPM).  It's been a  
few years since I did any real programming (the last bit of  
programming I did was on Visual Basic), but I'd love to re-learn some  
programming skills.  Not sure if I'd be best off learning C/C++ or  
something like Python.
