LOGO then! Also C64 C was not possible at that time. By the time I was
writing in Prolog, 1988 or so some 6 years later? there were no

I still find java slow. My last try was with the cogoban program. It
runs go once started but takes a long time to load and start. My
machine is an AMD X2 with 2 HD so what is the excuse for the slowness?
