I don't remember a magazine that came with a record. I do remember a
magazine that had all the programs as barcodes in the back of the
magazine. I guess you could just take the barcode reader and enter in the
program. Nobody I knew owned a barcode reader. Very few people I know own
them decades later. Does anybody know what magazine had the barcodes?
