Hooray I can program again:)
I loved BBC basic (defproc and endproc instead of goto and gosub).
What was your first computer? Mine was a ZX Spectrum 48k+
ZX81 with a whole 1k ram (and you could run a flight simulator on this (although you may have needed the 16k extension - I can't remember exactly).

Yeah me, too.
I got my computer studies GCSE using a BBC Micro.
I can remember using it to simulate a set of traffic lights and my pièce de résistance was a program which predicted football results (it didn't actually work, but hey ...)
Wow, I remember that!
There were so many cool games out back then, such as [Sabre Wulf and [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyjamarama"]Pyjamarama](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabre_Wulf).
Did you ever play those?

I remember playing space invaders on the zx81. I tried to write my own using zx81 basic but I think I peeked when I should have poked

lol - yes I did that a few times before I bought a cassette player to load a game. I remember typing about 5 pages of numbers to get Tron to run on the BBC and then spending a week checking why it didn't work because of a mistyped number.
