As I had hoped, last week’s Tuesday Trivia was much easier than the previous two and generated more responses. Of the 10 entries, 8 were correct: the Apple /// in the screenshot appeared almost every week in the 80′s TV show Matt Houston, and it was called “Baby” for some reason. For those unfamiliar (or too young to remember), this show was a rather cheap ripoff of the popular detective series, Magnum P.I. Matt Houston starred Lee Horsley and Pamela Hensley and ran on the ABC network from 1982 to 1985. You can read all about it here.
So, to the winner. I use an Applesoft BASIC random number generator to pick a number that is associated with one of the correct entries, which are arranged by the order in which they were received. According to the Oracle, this month’s winner is…
