Default BASIC Paper Tapes

Do you have a paper tape reader but not a punch? Do you want to re-create the agony/joy of an authentic vintage computer experience and load BASIC from paper tape the way God (or Bill Gates, whichever) intended?

Well search no more! I can create paper tapes of 4K BASIC v. 3.2, 8K BASIC v. 4.0. and Extended BASIC v. 4.0 (also two versions of Disk BASIC but why would you want them on paper tape?) and will send you one for a small $3.00 fee to cover my cost of paper tape and mailing.
If you send me a tape image of 4K BASIC v. 4.0 or any other version of Altair BASIC I don't have, I'll create the paper tape of it and send it to you for free! (That would be just about any version not included in Rich Cini's excellent Altair32 emulator)

There's nothing quite like the experience of waiting ten minutes with one eye on the tape reader and one on the front panel lights and then have that wonderful MEMORY SIZE? question appear!

Cool A New BASIC Tape

I just got a cassette of 4K BASIC version 4.0. Now I don't have to mess with having to stop and change the switch settings after loading the tape. I can create paper tapes of this version, too. I did find out that Priority Mail cots almost $6.00 in the US so I'd have to charge $8.00 to cover the cost of postage and paper tape. Sorry!
