Bill Gates' early work [Sep. 24th, 2010|02:57 pm]
Russell Brunelle

This is software for the Altair, on punched tape. The instruction manual at the rear of this display (not visible in this photograph) contained a phone number at which to directly call Bill Gates if you had any sort of problem with this software. I tried calling that number, but it was answered by someone at a private residence who had no connection to the computer industry. In other words, if you still program in MITS BASIC on an Altair 8800 computer, you should update your support contact info.
