Here are a few handy date-related facts, that should help you remember the launch date:
23rd April is St. George's Day (killed a dragon. Nutter. Hoorah!)
23rd April, 1982 saw the launch of the ZX Spectrum (we get several requests a day for Carma: R to be ported to it. We're evaluating.)
23rd April, 1616 saw the death of William Shakespeare (who if he was alive today, would be our greatest living playwright but would probably be rubbish at Carma, on account of being very, very old.)
Yes, as Shakespeare's Falstaff memorably said, "It's raining gibs, hallelujah!"
