As fate would have it, a few things came together to give me a bit of a "sign" as to what the project should be:
- A recent eBay search led me to taking an interest in "Assembly Lines: The Book" by Robert Wagner;
- Shortly thereafter I became aware of "Assembly Lines: The Complete Book", which is a modern reprinting and extended edition;
- I ordered the book from Lulu.com, and it arrived yesterday just as I was getting desperate about finding a Retrochallenge project.
So, my project will be an attempt to read and absorb "Assembly Lines: The Complete Book" with the goal of writing some sort of program for the Apple II series of computers. I'm not promising anything as good as Threshold. But if I succeed, then maybe I can go to KansasFest this year without feeling like too much of a poser!
Wanna see how I do with this? Then you'll just have to stay tuned... :-)
