Hey! I used to do that. Programming FORTH on my Amiga, that is. Trying to
figure out MVP-Forth was very painful, though. Also, lack of MMU did not
make these excursions last very long, before Guru knocked on my door.

I still wish I'd bought a used CP/M box in 1985 instead of the
idiot Amstrad CPC-464, and learned programming Forth _properly_.
