The only episode I remember well is the one where some bank robbers nab
the white hat hackers and try to force them to write black hat
sploitz... but instead, ritchie codes the hack so that the alarm triggers
like 30 seconds after the alarm is tripped (it delays the actual output
operation of the computer controller alarm system 30 seconds). Ritchie and
the girl run for safety.
Then there was some episode with a Hero Jr. robot, supposidly Ritchie's
dad sent it to them.
And I remember a scene where Ritchie was trying to type fast on a Timex
I was 8 in '83. And jealous that no one else had an Atari 800xl. The all
had other computers, just like in the real world.
