Has anyone ever programmed on an Apple IIE before besides me?
If you have, what kind of things did you do?

I used to do graphis in for next loops.
Make random graphics spin around the screen fading to the middle (kindof tyedied looking).

Man that's a long time ago (back in school), so I only had a few hours a week of machine time.

From what I can remember, I used to write code to draw lissajous figures (here (http://www-groups.dcs.st-andrews.ac.uk/~history/Curves/Lissajous.html) and various other graphical effects.

The one part which really had me baffled as I recall were shape tables. IIRC, these were oddly coded 'icons' for want of a better word, and there were no tools to help (of course now I would write a tool). I could never get my asteroids space ship to rotate properly :(
