Programming history

It's interesting how history turns itself around. I saw a piece on the tv today by Sir Clive Sinclair about how back in the 80s the dawn of home computing 10000s of people were programming their computers where now there are so many levels between the user and the hardware that virtually no-one is able to program hardware directly. So we are holdjng the past alive in our own way as we are still working directly with the hardware with our E-Stim Remote and Series 2, albet with a little bit more power than most of the early home computers. However I have no plans (yet!) to get the Series 2 to play Frogger!!
