Welcome, Jason Jacques!

A project log for Exploring the Science Fair Microcomputer Trainer

An exploration of Radio Shack's educational computer from 1985

Jason joined the team! He reached out to me after my first YouTube video so that I could set the record straight and correct some inaccuracies, in particular, the release year of the Science Fair trainer. Jason pointed me to the original Radio Shack catalog from 1985 when it was first released. I could then correct the trainer's debut year from 1976 to 1985.  

I then also took the opportunity to  "nerd-snipe" him in a second email, regarding my attempted (but failed) recursive Towers of Hanoi implementation on the Science Fair - with his extensive Science Fair knowledge and programming experience, would he be able to fit it in? 

And indeed, he was! I hence invited him to join the team - he gave me permission to include his recursive version of the Towers of Hanoi on the project. But nobody explains a program better than the author - so I am hoping that he will use his new team member privileges to upload his program here and maybe write a sentence or two explaining it. 

So, if you like, take it from here, @Jason Jacques - either by adding it directly to the details section, or as a new log entry, as you like!
